Am I the only one who feels like human (e.g. non-demon) bosses cheat with their stamina to some extent? It is not so noticeable for the most part, but the bossfight with him is pure cancer because of this, it is very prevalent. When I or a normal enemy runs out of stamina and the red bar begins flashing, it means 2 things: they cannot pull off complex moves and one more attack and they are stunned, AND that one more hit taken and they surely will be stunned. This works for all enemies, except him. When his stamina bar is flashing red he either gets in a super-slicey-combo without problem AND without staggering afterwards (which at least would have made the fight more tolerable, if cheesy), or when I hit him (no matter the weapon, tonfa, spear, etc, same effect in his case) while his stamina bar is flashing, he simply does not get staggered. For a time, I thought my weapons did f*ck-all ki damage, but the tonfas are one of the best in that regard. Also, the last straw for me was when his bar was flashing red and I hit him with a full 3-hit-combo from my tonfas (going in a lil' daring, knowing that this'll stagger him), and after I finished the combo (all 3 hits connected, he was not blocking) he just shrugged and attacked me straight up and I died on the spot. I'm all for the feeling and the backstory of this fight: dueling with a legendary samurai, I get it, he SHOULD be super OP (I don't have problems with his tons of DPS, fast attacks, lots of 1-hit-kill attacks, and so on), but at least he should abide by the same laws that every enemy and the player plays by. I love Nioh's feeling and bosses, but this one just gives me pure AIDS, solely because of the fact that he does not give a rat's arse about the rules.
