FromSoftware never stops to amaze me. Some of these secrets are insanely hidden away. One of them is not even accessible through normal means. It’s crazy how far the developers will go for a small detail, that ninety percent of the players will probably miss anyway.
First of all, are you kidding me? You can actually use the puppeteer skill on Snake-Eyes and bring her along to fight the Guardian Ape? Oh come on From, I died at least ten times in that fight. Since the ape brings his girlfriend, I guess it’s only fair for Wolf to bring his own.
Sneaking behind the Sakura Bull and using the firecrackers prosthetic, you can actually scare the bull to the death, literally. That fight was never very difficult but sneaking up the bull and giving him a heart attack? Seriously? It’s hilarious.
Do you remember the shinobi walls? Well I always found kind of stupid how the shinobi wall from Ashina Castle teleported you to the Dilapidated Temple. It made no sense, but if you look closely on the ground you will notice some symbols. Those symbols are probably magical and responsible for the teleportation.
My favorite of them all is the comparison between the first time you fight Genichiro and the last. The first time Wolf fumbles for his sword, before he pulls it out from the sheath. The second time though, he is completely steady and focused. Showing this way how far he has come. I think the same goes for the player, since very few games succeed in making you a better player, with each boss fight.
