Enemy Description

Yasuke, widely known as Obsidian Samurai, is one of Oda Nobunaga's retainers. Indeed, it was Nobunaga who gave him his Japanese name. A giant of a man who came to Japan from the African continent, he first came to Nobunaga's attention when he was working as a missionary's attendant. Nobunaga promptly asked him to work for him. Yasuke subsequently took part in Nobunaga's military campaigns, including the subjugation of Koshu province. During the Honnoji incident, Yasuke was at his master's side until the bitter end.

At this point, Nobunaga ordered Yasuke never to allow his remains to fall into the hands of his enemies.

Yasuke, who had sworn eternal fealty to the master who had granted him not only freedom, but also the rank of Samurai, was determined to faithfully carry out his Lord's last command. Although he could not save his master's life, he succeeded in removing Nobunaga's remains from the temple of Honnoji which was ablaze and in danger of imminent collapse.

Throughout the entire fight, run towards the right side. Let him miss a combo, then in spear mid-stance poke him with :triangle: one time. Repeat until he’s dead.
When you see him use his spirit animal, get as far away as possible and run quickly to the right – he may be about to charge at you, and running sideways is the best option to not get hit by this. His other moves are basic axe / sword combos.

      I don't know how often I killed this guy by now, but I haven't got one single smithing text. The only positive thing is that this fight only takes about 10-15 seconds so my pockets are full with those Lumicite Shards :'D

        The obsidian set smithing text does exist and drop from this guy in case you're starting to lose hope or belief in its existence. It just takes a lot of attempts depending on your RNG...
