Long-arm Centipede Sen'un boss resides in the Senpou Temple, shortly after the battle with the Armored Warrior. This is a completely optional boss.

Come in and you will find yourself in the boss arena. You can leave the arena at any time.
How to deal with Long-arm Centipede Sen'un?
Begin the encounter with the elimination of small enemies: located on the floor and on the beams under the ceiling, and two in front of the main entrance. By jumping on them, a red dot appears, making the attack critical (that is, kill each of the minor enemies with one hit). Before attacking the boss, if he noticed you, you need to calm him down; get out of the building and let him get back to the altar. Attack him with a critical hit in the back or from above.
During the battle, the enemy uses his long legs to perform a long series of blows. The better you handle them, the faster you destroy enemy posture - be careful, however, as your posture may decrease as quickly as his. After each series of boss attacks you should leap back, restore the posture and continue to receive his blows - there's no need to attack when the enemy will soon lose the posture. In such moment you may defeat him with a critical strike. The enemy can sometimes make a critical strike based on a strong cut. Leap backwards or jump to avoid injury. To improve your posture, you can use Gokan sugar or persimmon fruit.
However, if you can't handle this combat technique, you can use. Fire (Fire Vent). In combination with the oil, they cause very high damage to the opponent. In addition:
- It is necessary to use the installation elements to avoid enemy attacks,
- Before the fight, you can also protect yourself from fire (eg. Drowsing Powder), which the enemy sometimes uses,
- You can always run on the beams under the ceiling If you are close to death. Remember, however, that if you leave the building, the enemy will regenerate his health. If you rest at the statue, boss sidekicks will appear once more in the arena.
