From the Darkness Quest Walkthrough

1 Use the side of the bridges to swing to the large rock under the bridge.
2 Walk on the tree and use your iron hook to get to the other side.
3 Make your way toward the castle by utilizing the conveniently placed ledges and branches.
4 Enter through the window and assassinate your way to the top of the tower where you can survey the Mongol defenses.
5 Go back down to the second floor and pass through the opening. Go around the tower and use the slacklines to get to the other side. Squeeze through to the next area.
6 Make your way to the other side of this area so you can go around it easily. Use the roofs of the tents to reach the objective markers.
7 Enter the main keep and defeat Ryuzo in another duel.

Boss Fight: Ryuzo

Note: Because it is exactly the same as the first fight you had Ryuzo, you can use the same guide for that in this fight.

Strategy Checklist
(Click to jump)

Use Stone Stance

Stone Stance attacks work best against swordsmen like Ryuzo especially for staggering. Quickly stagger Ryuzo to leave him open for your attacks.

How to Unlock All Stances

Dodge or Parry Blue Attacks

You can only parry Ryuzo's blue attacks after you unlock the Unyielding Sword Parry Samurai Technique. If you haven't unlocked it yet, you should just dodge it instead.

Ryuzo's blue attacks deal a lot of damage so memorize the attack animation, time your parry perfectly, and counter with a deadly strike.

If you are still having difficulty in parrying it, you can try dodging it and attack as soon as you can.

How to Parry

Always Dodge Red Attacks

Red attacks are both unblockable and unparryable so be sure to dodge them. Keep in mind that after a red attack, Ryuzo might still perform more normal slashes right away so prepare to parry them.

Attack when Ryuzo Sheathes His Sword

Sometimes during the battle, Ryuzo will sheathe his sword, hinting a swift and sudden red attack. This is actually an opportunity to attack as Ryuzo won't be able to block.

After you attack him a few times, he will let out a few slashes so be on guard.

Maintain Safe Distance

Basically, the best way to win this battle is to keep your distance from Ryuzo to easily dodge his attacks and parry or unleash your own attacks when you can.
