Ippon-Datara is an Enemy in Nioh 2. Ippon Datara is a one-legged, one-eyed Yokai that attacks with a large hammer or Odachi and deceptively fast skills. It is encountered from early mission in Nioh 2.
- Pronounced "IP-pon DAH-tah-rah." Ippon-Datara is a one-legged, one-eyed yokai. It is most commonly encountered in the vicinity of mines and it is believed to have gained its unsightly form after years of harsh labor as a blacksmith. While it favors wielding weapons such as the hammer or odachi, its powerful leg also makes for a deadly weapon.
- It is said that only the most skilled of master blacksmiths turn into Ippon-Datara. Legend has it that their obsession with their work drives them to harness the power of Spirit Stones, thus losing their souls to sorcery and transforming into Yokai. The weapons these masters create are imbued with an otherwordly beauty, and there is no limit to the zealous collectors who desire them for their private collections.
- Some believes that Ippon-Datara was once the one-eyed god of blacksmiths, Amatsumara who is believed to have taught humans the art of metalworking. He is often worshipped in shrines installed by blacksmiths who desire blessings in their place of work. It is said that appeasing Ippon-Datara's raging spirit may assist in its return to being the patron god of smithing once again.
