Kairagi (Japanese: かい Kairagi), are a type of Nobushi. There are currently two types of Kairagi: Dancing Thunder and Fiery Might.

Ochimusha are ghostly versions of Kairagi and are special one-time enemies. Like the Kairagi, Ochimusha have two types: Ensorcelled Thunder and Cankered Flame.


Most Kairagi are former yoriki of the Shogun's Army who left for various reasons and typically rob others to make a living.[1] It appears that they can imbue their swords with the Elements through a forgotten technique with a paper seal from a Kamuna art.

Abilities and Attacks

Note: All attack and ability names are unofficial.

  • Slashes: The Kairagi slashes at the player three times. When the blade is infused with its element, there is a possibility that the final strike may be substituted for a Spinning Slash instead.
  • Charge: The Kairagi will point its blade towards the player and charge towards them once.
  • Spinning Slash: The Kairagi performs a spin attack.
  • Jump and Strike: The Kairagi will jump towards the player's location and perform a downwards strike. In the Avenger state, It is possible for the Kairagi to perform a double slash after this attack.
  • Dodge: The Kairagi jumps backwards, away from the player.
  • Elemental Infusion: The Kairagi infuses its blade with its element and performs a ground slam. This elemental infusion will last for 30 seconds and will cause all other attacks to be imbued with its element as well. Note that this weapon infusion cannot be neutralised by any Elemental Reactions.
  • Taunt: The Kairagi will clench and raise their fist to taunt their opponents, said taunt is identical to that of the Maguu Kenki. They will not perform this move if they are in an Avenger state.
  • Block: The Kairagi enters a stance with its blade held downwards, pointed diagonally, during which it will block player attacks from the direction they're facing, similarly to shield-using Mitachurls.
  • Avenge the Fallen: When an ally Kairagi dies in battle, the other Kairagi will attempt to avenge their fallen comrade. The Kairagi imbues itself with an aura, as well as infusing its blade with its elemental. While in this state, the Kairagi is also immune to stun effects, including Frozen elemental reactions and Planet Befall's petrification. The Kairagi will then gain a 30-second 50% max HP increase (this will also heal the Kairagi if it is under its max HP) and will then enter the Avenger state permanently. While in this state the Kairagi has increased Interruption Resistance and will always prioritize infusing their blade if their blade's infusion ends. Kairagi can also perform a number of different attack combos while in this state.


On their own, Kairagi are typically not a problem. However, they are similar to Elite Enemies in strength despite being classified as Normal Enemies. When the Kairagi spots the player, they will unsheathe their sword; they gain a temporary damage reduction until they finish or are staggered, which cancels this animation. Kairagi are not particularly strong if they have not imbued their swords, although they still do significant damage. Once they have imbued their swords, they become far more dangerous as this significantly increases their attack power. This can also apply various elemental reactions depending on what enemies are nearby that further increase this damage.

When encountered in pairs, dealing with Kairagi becomes much more troublesome as they both need to be defeated in a short time frame. If the player defeats one of them too fast, the other will enter an Avenger state, increasing their health, prioritize infusing their blades and use more deadly combos. They also become immune to Frozen and Petrification attacks. The time frame does vary as the Kairagi will not attempt to enter this state if in the middle of an attack, and they can still be Frozen or Petrified before they attempt to do so, although none of these are reliable.



  • The Kairagis so far are the largest human enemies in-game along with the Fatui Skirmishers Vanguards and Legionnaires.
  • "Kairagi" was another name for the wokou (Japanese: こう Wakou; Korean: 왜구(倭寇) Waegu; Chinese: 倭寇 Wōkòu), who were Japanese pirates that consistently raided and skirmished the shores of Korea and China during the 13th and 16th centuries.
  • During a survey poll in 2.1, the Kairagi were listed as Elite Enemies, even though they fall under the Normal Enemies category in-game due to the Mora and experience gained from defeating them.
