Maguu Kenki looks like a traditional Japanese samurai, with a huge and fearsome Mempo or samurai mask. The size of the Samurai boss’ mask is absurdly huge and has spooky functioning eyes. As players enter its vicinity, Maguu Kenki’s shield-like mask moves apart, revealing the actual scale of the boss.

Maguu Kenki’s normal and special attack combos seem slow-paced in the early development stage. The samurai pauses for a while before each strike, allowing players to attack it or prepare to dodge the next combo. During the fight, Maguu Kenki’s shield-like masks hover around him, as shown in the clip attached below.
