So, I figured out that you can eavesdrop onto Kuro and Emma talking about some stuff. That started a chain of events that led to me obtaining an item that I could use with the Buddha that took me back to Hirata Estate. After you eavesdrop on Kuro and Emma I made sure that I was "restarting" everything so I would keep going back to the sculpture up top where you fight The Owl and Genichiro to rest. That kepts moving the plot forward for me until you move to the next area. You got to a few areas (nothing where you fight anybody), but you gotta follow it and keep making sure you get as much talk out of the characters involved (mainly Emma) as possible to get this item. You eventually go back to the Sculptor so if you get there you know you are doing things correctly. At least that's how I did it.

That’s crazy. Nice discovery. Does the same technique work on him the second time?

I kno 2 dudes who can't beat the final boss. And they have beaten all of the DS games.

I'm going through the Fountainhead Palace now. Just beat the Sechimen Warrior. Still trying to beat Owl #2. I just can't do it. Tried at least 40 times now

Have you beat him yet? I haven't fought him yet, but I'm there. Tonight I will begin my trials of defeating him.
I’m going to be honest... prepare to be disappointed in my response...

I caved. Spent 5 consecutive nights trying to beat him, looked up every cheese in the books. Best I could do was ALMOST get to the 4th phase.

I’ve spent enough emotion and anger on the game, I traded it back in. Going to go a new route for a bit. Maybe when DLC is released i’ll buy it again and go for round 20 with him.

Hah! Been there many times. No judgement from me. Seriously died 100 times (not kidding) to the hands of Owl Father at Hirata Estate. I had a buddy of mine beat him for me. I just couldn't do it. The cheeses for the final boss look easy, but I'm sure once I go and try it myself it will be a completely different story.

I don't blame you, though. I have said many times I was done with the game. I bought it on Steam so I can return it lol.

I beat him last night. Genichiro is really easy just parry his attacks and you get him in ~30 seconds. Isshin's first phase I just ran away and hit him once whenever a clearing came available. Second phase I used the loaded umbrella and the skill art that let me attack using the umbrellas power. Did the same for the 3rd phase while also using the tanto ceremonial blade to give me more emblems.

Replaying this since there still isn’t much coming out on PS5 in the coming months.

It’s also bothered me that I never beat the final boss, I caved and traded it back in. Going all the way this time.

Man this game is a masterpiece.

I actually found the Owl Father #2 being the hardest boss in the game. I never beat him, but my buddy did for me lol

Wheeeew I finally did it. Once I realized how to beat the final boss (all FOUR phases… ridiculous), it really was pretty manageable.

The first time I played through the game I went into the final boss fight without the loaded umbrella, hadn’t unlocked it in the skill tree. This time I had it, got him on the 3rd try.

Yep, same. That game was really good and sad to hear they were not going to bring out DLC for it. But I also felt way more satisfied and accomplished after beating that game. That game was tough! Some friends who love the Souls series say this game is top 2 hardest (if not the hardest) they have played from Hidetaka.
