The general can use a technique that reduces posture.

To defeat the mini-boss, deflect his attacks and jump over the general's special attack. Thanks to this method, you will be able to defeat him without losing health.

  1. The mini-boss can use a special technique that reduces posture bar - if you plan on filling up his posture bar, don't let the general use this technique. You can recognize it by white aura around the mini-boss.
  2. Watch out for the general's special attacks and take the terrain's curvature into consideration - you can still get hit when you stand on the stairs. Fight with the enemy on even ground.
  3. Use Mikiri Counter to deal with the general's thrusting attacks.
