Bestiary entry

"'Rei' stands for 'honor'.
Honor calls for careful moderation when dealing with others.
If we lose this sense, we rush headlong into chaos."


Rei as depicted in the Bestiary.


After defeating Ninetails, Amaterasu can challenge the Canine Warriors, renamed Kusa 5, at the Gale Shrine for Stray Bead #35. Rei appears with Shin, Chi, Ko, and Tei, sharing the same attacks. When the battle starts, Amaterasu can immediately approach him and begins her assault with farming techniques. After the farming procedures are completed, Amaterasu has to focus on offense while simultaneously defending from the attacks of the other Canine Warriors. When Rei jumps into the air and perform a somersault before landing, his Honor Orb glowing, Amaterasu has to run to a certain distance, wait for Rei to lunge at her, and when he has covered half the distance between his original position and Amaterasu's, execute a Sub-Reflector Counterattack to gain a Demon Fang and defend from the attack. Other attacks of the Canine Warrior includes a series of multiple lunge and bites, a hole-digging attack, and a land mine attack. When sufficient damage is dealt, Rei will be stunned, a chance for Amaterasu to deal further damage.
