Boss guide for Juzo the Drunkard in Sekiro, including boss attack patterns and strategy on defeating it

Juzo the Drunkard

Number of HP Bars2
RewardPrayer Bead
Area EncounteredHirata Estate


Conditions during the 1st and 2nd HP Bars

  • Before focusing on Juzo, defeat the surrounding enemies. The boss appears in the middle of the area, so it is better to defeat all other targets in the mansion and in the courtyard.

  • Speak to Nogami Gensai to befriend him. Since it is possible to talk to Gensai when enemies in the area are alerted, it is possible to take on the boss two-on-one if you defeat the minor enemies first.

  • If Juzo targets Gensai, you can safely attack him from behind.

Reduce his HP by half.

  • Since the boss' poison mist covers a considerable area, watch out for when Juzo drinks from his bottle and be ready to dodge.

Get close when you see the motion above.

  • It is quite risky to parry Juzo, so focus instead on reducing his HP.
