This opponent acts as a defender of the gates of Ashina Castle.
Before the battle, you need to listen to the conversation of a soldier near his horse - you can learn from a monologue that the horses are afraid of gunpowder. Go to the merchant with the ravens on the top of the rock in front of the “Ladder of Death” and you can buy from him Robert's Firecrackers for 500 coins.
Give this device to Sculptor idol in Dilapidated Temple to get a tool for the prosthesis Shinobi Firecracker. He spends two emblems of the spirit for the application and helps to interrupt almost any boss attack or stop him.
It is better to stay close to the enemy as close as possible - timely reflection of enemy attacks will quickly fill the enemy concentration scale. The alternative is to first inflict damage on health.
Watch the opponent's helmet - from time to time the snap point for the Hook Attack. As soon as you see the symbol, immediately catch up to it, otherwise the boss may throw a spear at you on the rope or spin it around you.
Use Robert's Firecrackers and Grappling Hook Attack. To unlock the skill, you need to find at least two more devices for Shinobi on the territory of the Hirata Estate location.
After the first mortal blow of the two necessary for victory, Oniwa’s horse will jump, while the rider hits you with a spear. Either walk away or get ready to repel the blows.
Another dangerous attack is accompanied by a red warning hieroglyph - Gyoubu drags a spear on the ground. Immediately jump to the side.
The remaining enemy techniques should be reflected or blocked. Beat the blow, jump to the side and beat the horse on the side. Just do not go behind your back, otherwise the horse will kick the hero with its hooves.
When it comes to the second critical strike, do not relax and finish off the boss (press the attack button again). As a reward, you will receive the memory of Gyoubu Masataka Oniwa (allows you to increase the character's strength) and the mechanical gun (open access to improvements to the prostheses).
