Do you know how Rurouni Kenshin can save you in games where you have to face many enemies at once? There is a certain battle tactic in the manga that has recently gone viral for being useful in games like Elden Ring or Dark Souls.
How Rurouni Kenshin Can Help You in Souls Games
Rurouni Kenshin is a historical action-adventure shounen manga first published in the 1990s that tells the story of an assassin turned wandering swordsman.
Although the manga revolves around themes such as ideals and romance, it also includes many action and martial arts elements. And one scene in the manga in particular that includes an explanation of a certain battle strategy caught the attention of many Japanese people.
The tactic is described in the manga as ”a technique often used by severely outnumbered Japanese revolutionaries towards the end of the Tokugawa shogunate”.
It consists of running away from enemies, or more precisely pretending to do so. Enemies will naturally chase you, but as their individual speeds vary, they will catch up to you one by one, in order of who is faster.
When the opponent reaches you, turn around and slash him, then keep running. By repeating this, you can eliminate your opponents, or at least fend them off and make it out alive.
The tweet that points out this tip for defeating multiple enemies has already received more than 27,000 likes, with many users agreeing with the advice. Some users have also reported that the technique is useful with games like Ghost of Tsushima, Sekiro, Dark Souls, and Diablo. Rurouni Kenshin can save you in games like these!
