The Giant Toad Boss
The Giant Toad Boss Fight in Nioh is a tricky one and also a frustrating one too. During the first phase of the Giant Toad boss fight, you must attack in-between his attacks.
In this phase, the boss doesn’t attack often, but the occasional attacks hurt a lot so always make sure to dodge away.
After dodging and attack immediately close the gap between yourself and the Giant Toad and land a couple of quick attacks and back off again.
This will help yu to easily complete the first phase without risking much.
The second phase of the Giant Toad Boss fight is a tough one. In the phase, the boss will attack often and will toss bombs at you which hurt pretty bad.
Just be patient and keep your cool if you die in this phase.
All you have to do is find opportunities to land your attacks and if you stick with the strategy you will be able to defeat The Giant Toad.
