- The Nuppeppo is a yokai that resembles a lump of flesh. The wrinkles and protrusions traditionally depicted on its body in japanese handscrolls may resemble a face, but it is unclear whether this yokai truly possesses facial features, or simply a set of fortuitously-shaped lumps and bumps. Some believe that Nuppeppo and a yokai spoken in ancient Chinese sources whose flesh was used to produce a hugely powerful elixir are actually one and the same.
Nuppeppo Locations & Drops
- This enemy has large amounts of damage reduction, except from behind and inside it's mouth. The goal is to bait it into using attacks that expose its mouth and then attacking it's mouth for massive damage, or alternatively doing Ki damage to for an opportunity to attack it from behind.
- Staying far away will prompt it to use either a long range burst attack, it's inhale attack, or burst attack that sprays gas that causes the Berserk status while luring enemies. This is good for you since this allows either a large amount of Ki damage or the ability to attack it's mouth.
