Defend yourself from ice and fire

Ryomen Sukuma is a very powerful creature indeed and beating it will not be easy at all. The recommended level to beat this boss is the85 and we advise you to have reached it before trying to challenge this creature.

Ryomen Sukuma è uno Yokai formato da two creatures united, one capable of using the flames and one capable of exploiting the ice. To cope with these two attributes, we advise you to prepare gods talismans able to increase the defense to these elements. In addition, it may be useful to prepare some talismans of fire and water to exploit its elemental weaknesses, but it will not be strictly necessary.

Ryomen Sukuma is able to fight with a different fighting style depending on which of his two sides is facing you. If he attacks you with his red side, will use a lot short-range fire attacks. These attacks can inflict you serious damage, so it is essential to try not to get hit at all. A good way to avoid these hits is to try and dodge for stand on your side of the boss, but in that case you have to beware of his circular area attacks.

If you need to heal you can safely run away and use an item, as most of its attacks are close. The only ranged move he has is a triple fire bullet, but this move is extremely slow and easy to avoid.

Once you enter the Dark Realm the hits of this boss will become more and more incessant and he can even start some multiple attack combo extremely dangerous. Plus at this stage the blue side behind him every now and then he will shoot arrows at you, making the fight even more difficult. At this stage it may be a good idea to wait for it to use a charge or plug to perform the explosive counterattack, as these attacks will be fairly simple to block.

If he attacks you with his blue side, Ryomen Sukuma will mainly use ice ranged attacks very fast and not very powerful. In this case the best approach is in attacking the boss head-on and try to deal as much damage as possible before it changes sides again. But beware of don't let your guard down, because even though he mostly uses ranged attacks he is still capable of hit you closely. More there is a risk that it will suddenly change sides and attack you off guard with a powerful blast of fire.

In Dark Realm the boss's ranged attacks will become even faster than normal and it could be difficult to avoid them all. For this reason we advise you to defend you in case you are too far from the boss and then approach and use the Yokai transformation. In particular the transformation Gross it is very effective against this side of the boss and could give you a great advantage in combat.

Harnessing Crystals - Nioh 2 boss guide: how to beat Ryomen Sukuma

Ryomen Sukuma's arena is very large and simple in appearance, but in reality it has a very unique element: the crystals. These crystals are divided into red and blue, and can be destroyed to temporarily attribute a elemental effect to your weapon. Using these crystals could really increase your chances of winning against this boss, so we suggest you exploit them as much as possible.

When you are faced with the blue side of the boss you will have to destroy the red crystals, while when you fight against his red side you will have to destroy the blue crystals. Keep in mind, however, that to destroy these crystals it will not be enough to dodge towards them as often happens with other similar elements of the scenario, but you will have to hit them with the weapon you want to upgrade.
