How To Defeat Chapter 5 Boss Sanjuro Demon In Trek To Yomi
Despite his size, Sanjuro Demon is very mobile due to the face that he levitates through the air, being able to glide across the arena with ease. This fast movement along with his long-reaching and hard-hitting spear makes him a hard boss to pin down. Luckily, his actual attacks a highly telegraphed, making it possible to avoid his attacks does leave him open for punishment.
Blocking is not really the best choice in this fight, with the best course of action being to utilize your roll dodge to get through attacks. He has multiple attacks that are, as mentioned before, telegraphed well enough that you can dodge and use that time to get a few hit in. Don’t get too greedy, however, and use as much of your ranged abilities as you can. His big move is a leaping attack that will see Sanjuro Demon jump backward in an arc and then come back in that same arc while bringing down his mighty spear. Getting hit by this will knock you flat on your back, so time your dodge well and you can get some good damage in.
Defeating Sanjuro will return him to his regular form, allowing you to make your second dialogue choice in the game. Once you make your decision, a cutscene will begin that brings Chapter 5 to a close.
