Go! Kotaro Ushiwaka
"The Perceptive Yokai"
As Coonjo was walking along a wooded path, she encountered the Perceptive Yokai, who began talking with her. When Kotaro, Nyudo and Uragira approached the Perceptive Yokai's domain, he stood in the middle of the path and halted them. Kotaro instructed Uragira to engage the yokai as a distraction, allowing Nyudo to approach from behind and attempt to whack him with his club. However, the yokai anticipated Nyudo's attack, parrying with a kick to the chest which knocked him to the ground. Kotaro then joined the fray, fighting the yokai off with his naginata. Kotaro whispered to Nyudo to make a maneuver, prompting him to run off to a rotted tree trunk and pull it from the ground. Uragira helped him to roll the tree toward the Perceptive Yokai in an attempt to topple him, but he managed to leap backwards over it. The yokai laughed at their efforts before charging back toward Kotaro. Angered, Nyudo began to run after him while swinging his club, but walked into a tree branch, causing him to lose his grip of the club. The club flew through the air before striking the Perceptive Yokai in the head, greatly disorienting him. Kotaro followed with a slash to the back with his naginata, causing the yokai to fall to the ground dead.
The Perceptive Yokai, as his name entails, is incredibly perceptive to oncoming attacks and can dodge or counter them without even needing to see the attacker.
The Perceptive Yokai was ultimately defeated by a surprise strike to the head, which left him open to a slash from Kotaro's naginata.
