Tips for beating Saika Magoichi
This is a very skilled boss with quick attacks that can kill you even with a single hit. The low guard double Katana is recommended in this fight, it doesn't do much damage, but is very quick to dodge and consumes KI. With the quick attacks you can sometimes also be able to push Saika into the flames in the area.
You will need a lot of KI which will be recovered as fast as possible. The best times to attack are after he jumps towards you and misses, when he stops flying and returns to the ground, and when he summons the bird.
ALWAYS make sure you have some KI available to dodge.
