Bolting Boar Notes

  • This attack knocks enemies to the ground. This will allow you to attack them some more during their mandatory get up animation
    • Suiki will always do a water explosion attack after this attack is over. Ironically this makes this attack more effective on her than on other enemies, as  the recovery time of that attack is quite long.
    • Ippon-Datara will be grounded long enough to get a final blow.
  • This skill works on a large number of Yokai and several bosses.
  • Any movement input while blocking will cause this attack to fail. Make sure you do not have a stick or arrow key input when blocking.

      works on yoki, enki, ippon, tengu, snek ladies all humanoid enemies. if you want to own these yokai use sloth and lighting debuff it makes timing it very easy.
