Koroka is an Enemy in Nioh 2. Koroka is an elite type of Yokai that uses magic to conjure fire-based attacks.


Enemy Description

  • Koroka were once old stone lanterns, and are considered a type of "tsukumogami" (an item that has acquired a spirit.) When a stone lantern that has long remained in disuse is suddenly found lit of its own accord, this is said to be to work of Koroka, or possibly a sign that a Koroka is nearby. A Koroka's flame strikes fear into the hearts of all who see it, for it is believed that these unlucky few will die within days.
  • While a Koroka has no face, a soft flame flickers where its head would be. However, witnesses have seen Koroka lift the pipe they wield to their flame the way a man might smoke his tobacco. One theory is that a Koroka's pipe is somehow connected to the Yokai Realm, and they smoke it to inhale otherworldly fumes that fuel an incoming deadly attack.

      Water Onmyo Magic is devastating to them. Water Shot and Thunderstorm Shot give them quick ailments that cause Corruption, and they go down easily.

          Is it just me or is this enemy really a joke? You can spam attacks all day long and once in while they will do a super move which you can burst counter so easily cause they take an age to charge the attack.
