Yea, don't even bother trying to outshoot the Archer Rider. I swear, his aim is perfect. And the rate of fire at which he shoots the arrows is insane. The Inferno ninpo proves to be very effective. If you time it right you can take out 2 Horsemen with one shot.

*As soon as you're about to get run over by a horsemen activate the Ninpo attack. The horsemen will get thrown off his horse and try to aim the fireball at the remaining horseman to knock him off his horse as well.

Your probably not going to have enough money to purchase Devil Elixers to keep doing this technique throughout the whole fight. So use the technique when you really need it. Other than that stick to the Wolf's Bane kick combo(XX>XX). As soon as the Horse arches up you can squeeze in 2 free shots on the rider with your bow. This is easily the hardest encounter in the game. If I ever see anyone get the Time Bonus for this encounter without using the Inferno Ninpo trick, then I'll just go ahead and say that he/she is the best gamer in the world.

Me too. I can easily get the Time Bonus with the Inferno Ninpo, but without it, I've only did it TWICE on NORMAL.

yep, eight hellish horses. 8 demonic riders, 4 fiendish spears and an infinite amount of deadly arrows.

hardest encounter in VH, IMO.



I say it's second hardest, IMO 100 crab fiend challenge is the hardest. I've played through VH 5 times, I've only done that challenge once. I just don't bother to do it if I have a full inventory after ch. 14 because I don't want to waste it all there.

I'd rather finish the game in the next 10 minutes, than the next hour.

You don't have to fight 100 crab fiends? I'm sure there are those smaller pink ones too.

Great job. I often use the Inazuma Ninpo.

Frankly, for the Horsemen at this point I can't afford like more than one Inferno. So if there are gonna be 8, (horsemen) I'm gonna have some fancy UT chaining to do, eh?

But you cannot use the UT to get them off their horses, or can you? I'm still trying to figure that one out.

Huh. Maybe if you timed it right... Razz


You can UT the 2nd Chapter boss, why not the Horsemen. Question

Tricky timing on that one. You've got to execute it perfectly otherwise you'll get arrowed out of the sky.
