Ryomen Sukuna (2nd Encounter) Boss Fight
This is the same boss fight from main mission The Sun Sets on Mount Tenno again.
Ryomen Sukuna is a big Yokai boss that has a fire half and a water half. He can switch between them but generally attacks with his fire half and uses the water half for ranged support attacks.
The main moves you’ll want to exploit are his red aura charged attacks. Always + Burst Counter them. Luckily, they are relatively easy to get the timing right (as usual just before he hits you) and he does them quite often. After a successful Burst Counter you can follow up with your most powerful combo. In between his red aura attacks just run left or right at a safe distance, let him miss a combo, land a few hits and repeat.
Being good at timing Burst Counters makes this fight a lot easier and shorter. Not only do the Burst Counters drain his Ki, your follow-up combo will further diminish his Ki. One or two Burst Counters followed by a strong combo should be enough to deplete his Ki. Then you can just keep hitting him because he’ll stagger from each attack while out of Ki.
Due to how frequently the boss uses red aura charged attacks and how easy they are to block, you can Ki-drain and stunlock the boss for most of the fight.
Once he’s defeated you’re all done here.
