Ochimusha: Cankered Flame are Common Enemies found during the Sacred Sakura Cleansing Ritual World Quest series. They appear as ghostly versions of the Kairagi: Fiery Might.

They are creatures created by the coalescence of filth that appear as samurai. Their forms are often swayed by the thought and memories of the times.[1]


Abilities and Attacks

Note: All attack and ability names are unofficial.

  • Slash: 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 Spin Attack instead.
  • 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.
  • 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 all stun skills, including Frozen elemental reactions and Planet Befall. 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. Note that the Kairagi can also perform three different attack combos while in this state:
    • The first attack combo consists of a Elemental Infusion, followed by a Charged Attack and another Charged Attack as the combo finisher.
    • The second attack combo consists of a Elemental Infusion, followed by a Jump and Strike and a Charged Attack to end off the combo.
    • The third attack combo consists of a Elemental Infusion, followed by a Charged Attack and a Jump and Strike, with the final attack being another Charged Attack.
  • Charged Attack: The Kairagi will point its blade towards the player and charge towards them once.
  • Spin Attack: 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.
  • 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.


Ochimusa are the same as Kairagi and are dealt with the same way. With the exception of one Sword Hilt puzzle, all Ochimusa are fought alone, although the one in Higi Village also has a Kairagi: Dancing Thunder at the spot.
