Gaki is an Enemy in Nioh 2. Gaki is a small, starved Yokai that attacks with deadly claws, grabs, and by throwing objects. It is encountered since the early missions of Nioh 2.


Enemy Description

  • Pronounced "GAH-key." Gaki is a yokai that was once human, cast down to Gakido upon dying due to the sins it committed during its lifetime. Gajido is described as a realm of eternal starvation and suffering for those in the afterlife. The pitiful Gaki is unable to eat normally, as consuming regular food will cause its body to burst into flame. It is for this reason that the Gaki prowls our world, searching for the flesh of dead warriors to ease its hunger.
  • Due to its ever-starving nature, the Gaki is often driven to such a manic state that it mistakes stationary kin for a human corpse. A gaki that cannibalizes its kin in this way grows larger, stronger and far more dangerous. When battling a Gaki, be certain to kill any other unmoving Gaki in the vicinity, before its brethen turn and do the job for you.


Gaki Locations & Drops


Combat Information

  • Perilous Grab Attack. This grab will power up the Gaki, transforming it into it's larger variant.
  • Throws stones. Some throw bombs, usually found on rooftops.
  • Can spit a paralyzing area attack, and will occasionally spit some up as it's knocked to ground while out Ki. Be careful when approaching, as you may not notice the spit until you're already performing the finishing blow, ensuring paralysis.
  • Headshots will stun them.
  • Nearby Gaki will eat their mates and transform into their larger counterparts, becoming more aggressive and stronger. They can only perform this action on Gaki that are knocked down. Try to quickly finish off any fallen Gaki before it can become a meal.
