How to Beat Tzitzi-ya-ku

Sudden Flash

Tzitzi-Ya-Ku can emit a flash of light from his head to the direction he is facing. He will be defenseless during this attack but it can stun you if you are within its range and you are looking at him directly. Avoid this by facing away and moving to the sides to get an opening for your attacks.

Weakening the Flash

You can shorten the range of the flash by breaking his head, this way you will only have to take one step back to get out of its range instead of moving to the sides giving you more time to strike. Also, the head is the weakest part of Tzitzi-Ya-Ku, you should focus on attacking this part to maximize your damage output.

Tail Attack Follow-up

TziTzi-Ya-Ku will sometimes perform a jump attack at your position after using his tail attack. It is recommended that you keep moving after his tail attack to avoid any followups and only engage once you are sure that there is an opening.
