Ashina Depths Strategy
Snake Eyes Shirahagi
Snake Eyes Shirahagi will be waiting for you at the poison swamp. You get the drop on her by approaching from the Sculptor’s Idol and using the grappling hook on the large Buddha hand statue to reach the platform above her. You will be able to take out one of her HP bars using a Shinobi Deathblow to make the fight easier.
Headless Guardian Ape
The Headless Guardian Ape’s attacks are very similar to those used by the Guardian Ape (2nd Phase). The only difference is that it will summon another Guardian Ape during the 2nd phase of the fight. Prioritize taking out the brown Guardian Ape first, though remember to keep both enemies visible in your screen the entire time. The brown Guardian Ape has only 1 HP bar, so quickly reverting the fight into a 1-on-1 situation is the best strategy. Note that you can end the fight by just killing the Headless Guardian Ape, though it will be tough managing two enemies at the same time.
Hidden Forest Fog
Navigating through the Hidden Forest can be challenging because of the fog. However, you can hug the wall on your left while moving forward. You can take out enemies along the way using shuriken.
One of the weakest named enemies in the game, you can easily kill the Mist Noble by using a Shinobi Deathblow from above and attacking him as he tries to get up.
O’rin of the Water
O’rin attacks fast and the only way to defeat her is to get familiar with her moves. You also need to watch out for when she turns spectral and cannot be damaged. A good strategy to reliably damage her is to create some distance and bait her into performing her double slash attack. Make her miss by stepping back, then slash her as she recovers from her attack. Repeat the process and she will be defeated.
Corrupted Monk (Illusion)
Using Snap Seeds allows you to do considerable damage to the boss. Make sure to use Divine Confetti as they are extremely effective against spectral enemies. If you’re having trouble dodging the boss’ attacks, you can use the Firecracker Shinobi Prosthetic to stun the boss and get a few hits to whittle down their HP.
