Mallet-Wielding Taro Soldier

A mallet-wielding Taro soldier. The first is encountered before the Outskirts Wall - Stairway Sculptor's Idol, hiding behind a wall and only coming out once Wolf has entered combat with the nearby soldiers.

A duo of them is fought after the Ashina Castle Gate Sculptor's Idol.

One is seen at a grassy field after defeating Gyoubu Masataka Oniwa, hitting the ground with his mallet, another one directly behind him, hidden behind a corner.

One wearing the Senpou outfit is found behind the shrine in the first hall where the first one is encountered.

One wearing the Senpou outfit is found to the right from the main path leading down from the Temple Grounds in Senpou Temple, accompanied by Monkeys.

A sick version can be found in Mibu Village at the plantation.

Behaviour and Tactics

  • Leap: leaps into the air, slamming the hammer onto the ground.
  • Slam: upperhead slam with the mallet one to four times.
  • Slap and Hit: hits once with the mallet then his fist once or twice.
  • Wide Swing: swings the mallet in a wide angle.
  • Perilous Attack.pngFrenzy: enters a frenzied state, slamming the hammer repeatedly into the ground.

All their attacks are fairly well-telegraphed and easy to parry. Try staying behind them while they swing as they don't turn fast. If Wolf successfully stays behind them for a long enough time, the soldier will enter the suspicious phase, allowing for an easy backstab Deathblow.

Shield-Wielding Taro Soldier

One wearing the Senpou outfit found on the pathway leading up to the Main Hall from Temple Grounds in Senpou Temple, accompanied by a Senpou Adept and a club-wielding Taro Soldier.
