Shave Off Sakura Bull HP Via Deathblow

Shave Off Sakura Bull HP Via Deathblow

After killing the three fodder enemies, the Bull will be below you. You will be able to shave almost half of its HP off when you deal a Deathblow to it. Wait for it to get right below you to land a devastating blow!

Stay On The Bull's Backside

Stay On The Bull

The Bull has quick and powerful attacks. Despite this, the range of the attack will not reach its backside. The best bet is to stay behind the Bull to deal the most amount of damage!

Sakura Bull of the Palace Attacks

Sakura Bull Attack Pattern List

AttackDetails of the Attack
HeadbuttThe bull will swing its head forward for an attack with a wide range
Head ShakeThe bull will furiously shake its head from side to side



The bull will lower its head to the ground, then bring it up towards you for a headbutt. You can dodge this by running straight for the bull, and jumping or dodging to let it pass. This will also give you access to its backside.

Bull Will Learn Your Jump Pattern

Make sure to only jump when absolutely necessary. Jumping too many times will cause the bull to learn your jumping pattern, and change up its timing to allow it to hit you when you jump.

Head Shake

Head Shake

The bull will shake its head left and right to attack you. This can easily be avoided by staying on its backside. You can do a lot of attacks to damage the bull while the bull is shaking its head.
