Fighting Lady Butterfly requires you to meet her blow for blow to bring down her Posture. Whenever you strike at her, she will start a 2-strike counterattack that you can parry to damage her posture.

Wait Out for her Openings

First Phase - Tips

Attack after 3-Strike Combo

Attack after 3-Strike Combo

After Lady Butterfly does her 3-strike combo, she'll be vulnerable to your attacks then. Once she does her leg drop, you can strike her and it will hit! Just remember to parry right after because she will counterattack almost immediately.

Jump Up and Attack Downwards During Perilous Sweep Attack

Jump Up and Attack Downwards During Perilous Sweep Attack

The best way to escape the Perilous Sweep Attack is by simply jumping upwards. You can get in a few strikes to Lady Butterfly by attacking downwards as you go down.

Dodge Backwards for the Perilous Grab Attack

Dodge Backwards for the Perilous Grab Attack

Dodging to the side can easily get you caught by Lady Butterfly's Perilous Grab Attack. Instead, move backwards to dodge it. She'll be vulnerable to attacks after the Perilous Grab so rush forward and attack her after.

Open for Attacks After Leg Drop

Open for Attacks After Leg Drop

Instead of dodging the Leg Drop, block it instead if you have high enough Posture. This will allow you to be in her range and attack her as she's open to attacks after dropping down.

Second Phase - Tips

Run from Butterfly Projectiles

Run from Butterfly Projectiles

Blocking the Butterfly Projectiles are not recommended as they can easily break your posture. Running quickly around the arena will cause them to hit something else even when they're tracking you.

Dodge Back for the 6-Strike Combo then Attack After

Dodge Back for the 6-Strike Combo then Attack After

Don't bother blocking or parrying Lady Butterfly's attacks during the 6-strike combo. Dodge backwards as she does them and once she finishes her Perilous Attack, rush forward and attack her.
