10. Magara Naotaka
Hardest Nioh 2 Bosses
Magara Naotaka is the final challenge awaiting players in the Main Mission Corpses and Ice, and boy is it a doozy. Most boss battles in Nioh 2 are against either human foes or against monstrous Yokai that are several times the size of your character. Magara Naotaka bucks that trend, and the physically imposing ice-fiend wields a massive Nodachi in his corrupted fist and commands the supernatural powers of the underworld as well.
So while this duel can feel like one of the more mundane one-on-one encounters you are going to engage within Nioh 2, Magara Naotaka’s ability to summon a Yokai realm, in addition to his myriad elemental ice powers, makes it stand out from all the rest. Watch out for the incredible reach of his long blade, and unless you are running a heavy build, you are going to want to dodge his blows, rather than block them.
