Be Sure to Kill The Fodder In Front of The Bull
To make sure your combat isn't interrupted, deal with the fodder enemy prior to fighting with the Blazing Bull. You can sneak behind him for a stealth deathblow.
Dash Away From Blazing Bull's Charge Attack
As it is quite difficult to evade Blazing Bull's attack by jumping or dodging when he is rushing on you, you should just dash to the side.
Chase the Bull After Avoiding an Attack
After you managed to avoid its charge, start chasing him right away. You will have a chance catch up with him and deliver few strikes to his hind.
Aim to Strike When Blazing Bull Turns Around
After his charge, the bull will attempt to turn around to face you, use this chance to aim your attack for his face. You can cause the Blazing Bull to flinch by striking his head, opening window for a follow up attack.
Use The Firecracker To Disrupt And Stab The Head
Use your firecrackers to stun Blazing Bull. As he stands and falls back down, stab his head with a charged stab attack (press and hold R1).
Blazing Bull Boss Attacks
Bull charges repeatedly at the player up to 3 - 4 times. Dash to the side to evade his charge, and aim for a counter attack by chasing after his hind.
Vertical Swing Attack
