Sekiro: Shadows The Twice – How to Defeat Gyoubu Oniwa
Before You Enter the Giant Arena You should make sure that you have the equipment and skills to massively increase your chances of winning. First you need to unlock the skill hook hook attack in the skill tree Prosthetic Arts. It only costs one skill point and is a great tool for this boss fight. Second, you should purchase the Shinobi Fire Cracker Prosthetic Tool. These can be obtained from the Memorial Mob, a merchant located near the battlefield of Gyoubu Oniwa. It costs 500 Sen, which you can grind if necessary by enemies in the vicinity. You then need to return to the sculptor so he can attach the weapon to your arm.
Once you have both, you can start the fight. Gyoubu Oniwa is constantly racing, running past you and making sweeping turns with his spear. Deflect this and it will cause decent posture damage. He often runs away from you to make another charge, and when he turns around you should see an invitation to snap. Attack yourself and attack when you're around to get damage. If you are so close to him, use the Shinobi Fire Cracker. This sends forth fireworks that will scare the horse when it starts, creating a generous window to attack.
Gyoubu Oniwas positioner fills up pretty quickly, distracting his attacks and using the Fire Crackers defeat him pretty easily. You must defeat him twice with a Shinobi killing blow, but stay alert and stay close to win.
