|Adventurer Handbook Description|
|An disciplined mechanical swordsman.
Doesn't seem to have the ability nor will to speak, but instead only seeks to communicate with crossed swords.
It is said that this machine was made using the memories of the first-generation master of a certain sword school. However, it malfunctioned, lost control, and was ultimately discarded. Some sing that the machine's spirit still lingers in the place where its fate was ended. They also say that the vicious mask that serves as its guard was inspired by a famous oni from that era.
|Yashiori Island, Inazuma|

|Recommended Party for Maguu Kenki|
As mentioned above, you can make it through the Maguu Kenki boss fight quite easily with a combination of shields and close-ranged attacks. Most long ranged attacks will be parried anyway, so it's better to keep yourself protected and go in full-force.

The Maguu Kenki will parry all long-ranged attacks with its shield-like mask, so you will have to get close to fight it. Physical DMG dealers also get the spotlight against this boss. Physical damagers like Eula and Keqing also work well!
Since you want to get close to fight it and Maguu Kenki has several AoE attacks that may catch you off-guard, you should bring a shield character to help lessen the damage.
Maguu Kenki's attacks get more aggressive as its HP gets lower, so keep your guard (and shields!) up.
Attacking the Phantoms Maguu Kenki creates deal no damage to the boss, so it's best to focus on the solid body and avoid the Phantoms instead.
This boss has a mask which will block the majority of bow or catalyst attacks. It also blocks skills with mid range, like Zhongli's Elemental Skill. Maguu Kenki will also swiftly move closer to you as you keep your distance.
The mask parry is not completely long-range proof! Sometimes the boss will use the mask to attack instead, making it unable to parry. This is a good chance to deal a good chunk of damage.
It takes a little while after starting the fight before Maguu Kenki becomes vulnerable to damage. Wait till it's completely up before you start attacking.

Launching any long-ranged attacks or Elemental skills such as Fishcl's Oz against Maguu Kenki will trigger its Mask Parry and nullify any incoming damage against it.
A direct attack by Maguu Kenki. This attack is performed when your character is infront of Maguu Kenki. Since the attack only hits in front of Maguu Kenki, you can avoid it by moving to the left or right once you see the attack animation where the evil face is aligned.
A long-distance attack by Maguu Kenki's Mask. It uses the cryo element to attack the area around the mask. Before the attack, the evil mask will appear and spin around your character, so move away when you see it.
An attack where Maguu Kenki will lunge at you. Before attacking, it will draw its sword, so you can avoid it by timing your dash. Since the attack animation is very fast, you can avoid taking damage by putting up a shield beforehand.
A melee attack that attacks the area around Maguu Kenki. The attack animation before the attack is similar to that of Flash, but this attack is more likely to be performed when the character is close to Maguu Kenki. If you move away in time from Maguu Kenki, you will not take any damage. Since the attack is fast and difficult to avoid by moving, it is recommended to use a shield instead.
A melee attack that is performed three times in a row by Maguu Kenki. It's a relatively easy attack to avoid once you learn the movements. The best way to avoid the attack is to move in a circle around Maguu Kenki.
An AoE attack that deals a ton of damage around Maguu Kenki with Cryo Element. Move as far away from Maguu Kenki once you see the pre-attack animation. After this, Maguu Kenki's attack pattern will change and will become more dangerous, so be careful with your movement.
A lunging attack imbued with Anemo, unleashed once Maguu Kenki's attack pattern changes. Similar to Sword Flash, Maguu Kenki will lunge towards you, but instead deals Anemo damage and performs a follow-up slash attack, so stay alert and avoid it by dashing or shielding.
In rare occasions, instead of doing a follow-up slash attack, Maguu Kenki will instead use a Triple Sword Slash (Anemo) and ending it with a Mask Rush. Just move away from Maguu Kenki to dodge all of the attacks.
Maguu Kenki creates an illusion and together sends out ranged slashing attacks towards you. There are a total of four slashes that you can easily avoid by dashing away.
Maguu Kenki creates an illusion and each of them performs three consecutive attacks in a row. Although the range of the attack is wider, the attack pattern is the same as the Triple Sword Slash before and can be avoided by just dashing.
If you move too far away during this attack, Maguu Kenki will attempt to use Sword Flash (Anemo) on you, so try not to stray too far!
Maguu Kenki creates an illusion and performs a combined melee attack that damages everyone around it. Easily avoid taking damage by just moving away from Maguu Kenki.
