Benkei is a Boss and Enemy in Nioh 2. Benkei is a Seto Taisho Yokai that attacks with ???.
Benkei is warrior monk from the late Heian period, also known as Musashibo Benkei. He is large man, typically seen wearing a hood and the garb of a Buddhist priest. His reputation for being an incredbily powerful warrior precedes him, and the splitstaff is said to be just one of many weapons he wields with great skill.
He is famous for serving Yoshitsune. It is said that the two originally met because Benkei had a penchant for collecting weapons, and coveted Yoshitsune's blade.
As one of Yoshitsune's retainers, Benkei clashes with the Taira clan in Yashima. When he sees the protagonist's Sohayamaru, he mistakes it for Yoshitsune's own blade, and attacks the protagonist to reclaim it for his master.
After the protagonist manages to defeat Benkei, Benkei acknowledges their might and the two come to be companions. Benkei contributes to the protagonist's triumph over Uminyudo, the enormous yokai who attacks them at sea.
When Yoshitsune is forced to flee the capital, Benkei obeys his master's command and makes his way to Hiraizumi. There he is attacked by the Fujiwara army. Benkei singlehandedly holds the enemy soldiers off to protect his master, but is tragically struck down, with a multitude of arrows piercing his body. Benkei transforms into porcelain figure and shatters into pieces before a horriffied Yoshitsune's eyes, revealing that he was a Seto Taisho- a yokai formed from the unused fragments of old crockery-all along.

Notes & Trivia
Benkei's Hood is easily one of the coolest headgears in the game
How the heck do you dodge his spear phase.
I accidently attacked him during one of his attacks, knocked him over and drained a bunch of his ki, basically winning the fight for me. Has anyone else experienced this? Couldn't replicate it before defeating him.
The fact that not only is he Benkei, a legendary figure who never fell in battle, even on his deathbed, but that he's a Yokai based on possessed pottery Fiercely loyal to their owner and retainer is just doubly Awesome!
que es ruina petrea que pide para tener los 7 elementos?
One of the best bosses I’ve fought in recent history. He has such a good move-set. None of his attacks or combos feel unbalanced or unfair if you know how to read them. He also drops one of the best armor sets for tank builds in the game, and has incredible weapons.
He’s a cool boss, and an even cooler ally. I love this guy.
