How To Beat Snake Eyes Shirahagi Video
Initiate Battle With A Stealth Deathblow
You can bypass Snake Eyes Shirahagi's first HP Node by sneaking up behind him and performing a Stealth Deathblow. This reduces his HP Nodes to one, saving you a lot of time and effort in this battle.
Step 1: Hide Behind The Slanted Buddha
As soon as you land on the slanted Buddha, Snake Eyes Shirahagi will be alerted. Hide behind the buddha statue so that Shirahagi will not be able to see you.
Step 2: Approach Shirahagi
Once the marker on Shirahagi's head disappears, he will not be alerted to your presence. Use this opportunity to sneak up close to him. Make sure to approach slowly and quietly to avoid alerting him and other enemies.Check Out How To Use Stealth Here!
Step 3: Perform A Deathblow Once You Are Near Enough
Once you are near enough to him, a red circle will appear. This is a prompt to perform a Deathblow. Attacking with your sword during this time will perform a Deathblow and take away one of his HP Nodes.
Sidestep His Ranged Attacks
Shirahagi can attack you at distance by using his gun. This weapon deals tons of damage to you. However, it can easily be dodged by stepping to the side since it always travels in a straight line.
Move Back To Avoid Perilous Attacks
Snake Eyes Shirahagi employs an unblockable attack with a wide range. This deals tons of damage to you so it is best to avoid it. When the Kanji Symbol for Perilous Attack appears, jump back to avoid this attacks wide range.

Attack Pattern List
|Attack Name||Details of the Attack|
|Gunshot||Ranged attack with his weapon|
|Three Consecutive Shots||3 consecutive gunshots in close range|
|Melee > Kick > Gunshot||A series of close range attacks, conculded with a gunshot|
|Perilous Attack||Short range unblockable grab attack|
Shirahagi will start to aim at you, and then fire his gun. The time it takes for him to fire is long so you have enough time to sidestep. After his attack, you can close the gap and get in a few hits in since he takes some time to recover.
Three Consecutive Shots
Since the attack motion is slow, you have enough time to charge a counter attack after evading the last shot via a sidestep.
Melee > Kick > Gunshot
After his kick, you can dash in close and hit him to interrupt the gunshot attack. This will stop the combo, and give you a chance to get a few good hits in!
Despite having the potential to deal massive damage to you, this attack can be easily avoided by creating some distance between you and Shirahagi. Right after his attack motion, you can get in close to attack him.Check Out The All Kanji Sense Symbols List
