Namahage Voiced by Atsushi Abe
They always get stunned by the phoenix guardian spirit
These guys come in three variations (dual cleavers, left-handed cleaver, right-handed cleaver) and have a huge moveset.


One-handed:

These are written assuming he's wielding the cleaver in his left hand (your right side). These moves are the same on right-handed Namahage too, just mirrored.

Slash - Swings his cleaver to your left. Can be followed up by a right swing followed by another left swing. They can also end it with this next move.
Overhead Chop - Raises his cleaver and slams it down. Does an enormous amount of Ki damage; seemingly auto-staggers. However, this move has a slow wind-up. It deals less Ki/HP damage if it's used as a combo-ender from Slash, but should still be dodged. Knocks you down if it connects.
Pounce - Slams down his cleaver while pouncing towards you. Knocks you down if it connects.
Whirlwind - Spins in a circle, hitting a total of 3 times. Each hit can knock you down and send you flying backwards. This move is much faster and hits 5 times total if the Namahage is under 50% HP. Can end his Slash combo at under 50% HP, or if it has been staggered during the fight.
Retreating Slash - Close range slash while shuffling backwards a few steps. If under 50% HP/previously staggered, it staggers slowly backwards while swinging up to 4 times. If above 50% HP, can be followed by Pounce.
Roar - Exhales a cone of frost that drains your Ki and deals minor damage. Used when they summon a Yokai Realm portal to regain Ki.
Grab - Raises his free hand glowing with Yokai smoke, then swings it overhead towards the player. If successful, it will lift you up, impale you on it's cleaver, then rip the cleaver back out, doing roughly 1800 damage on NG and 2300 on NG+.


Dual-wielding:

Has the same moveset as the previous one (including the grab, despite not having a free hand), but altered animations to account for their two weapons. Has a few new moves too.

Scissor Slash - Swings both his cleavers towards eachother like a pair of scissors.
Pouncing Scissor Slash - Same as ^, but he leaps towards you at the same time.
X-Slash - Raises his cleavers and swings them in an X shape. Can follow up with Pounce or Overhead Chop.
Scuttle - Can be used after any move that lands his cleavers in the ground in front of him. Uses his cleavers like limbs and scurries at you, rapidly dealing damage (250 on NG, 323 NG+) and ending it with a double downward stab. Left very vulnerable if this move misses and you're close enough.


Hope this helps :)
