It's dangerous because of its special attack, Slay, instantly kills one target, and as a physical attack it ignores immunity to Death attacks. They have a chance to use Slay every other turn and can make short work of the party.

If the party has acquired the Ragnarok summon, it can be used to attempt to farm Genji Gloves from this enemy.


Vanish and Reraise help prevent being killed by the Samurai's Slay attack. Samurai should always be dealt with first.
