Please see Gyoubu Skip for Instant Kill method strategies.
- Get 6 free hits when Gyoubu rears his horse at the beginning of the fight.
- Chase after him immediately and deflect, a successful deflection will cause him to stop running and attack you.
- When attacking position yourself on the left-front side of the horse (your right). This is the deadzone for most of his incoming attacks.
- If possible deflect for the final hit of posture damage on first phase. A deflect instead of attack to break his posture on first phase will cause his stagger to not reset on next phase, allowing for an earlier stagger.
