Avoiding the Tail

How to Beat - Tobi-Kadachi 2.gif
If you position yourself on the tail, Tobi-Kadachi will often use his powerful tail slam attack. This attack has a long vertical reach, it is best that you avoid this by moving the sides.

Also, when Tobi-Kadachi is charged up. The range of his attacks will become wider because of the electricity discharge after every attack. It is recommended that you focus on his legs instead of attacking his tail to avoid taking damage.

Attack from the Trees

How to Beat - Tobi-Kadachi 3.png
Tobi-Kadachi will sometimes use the trees in the area before launching a powerful attack. You can use this opportunity to deal a bunch of damage if you have a long-range weapon before he can jump off.

However, for some hunters, it might be better to focus on dodging since this attack can instantly cart you if you do not have enough defense.

Curing Thunderblight

During Tobi-Kadachi's charged-up state, most of his attacks can apply Thunderblight. If you are affected by Thunderblight, you are more susceptible to stun which can be dangerous if not dealt with immediately. It is best that you cure the Thunderblight status using a Nullberry whenever it is present to avoid getting stunned.

Boosting Thunder Resistance

Most of Tobi-Kadachi's attack during the charged-up state has an additional thunder affinity that greatly increases his damage. You should equip armors that help you build up your Thunder Resistance skill to reduce the damage you take from these attacks.
