Sakura Bull of the Palace Combat Tips
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
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
|Attack||Details of the Attack|
|Headbutt||The bull will swing its head forward for an attack with a wide range|
|Head Shake||The 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.
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.
