The Headless Guardian is first encountered on the dirt path leading to the Guardian Sapling at Ryoshima Coast. It is a headless stone-gray Buddha statue with patches of moss on it, and a red hood. It has a golden staff that can be used for offense and defense.
The Headless Guardian is a headless Buddha statue possessed by the spirit of a rapscallion, and went on searching for heads at night. It goes door to door, knocking on them and demands for heads.
"Headless guardian statue possessed by the spirit of a rapscallion.
Searching for his head at night, he may knock on your very door,
shouting, 'Give me back my head or I'll take yours instead!'"
The Headless Guardian is straightforward: Bash it with Divine Instruments until it dies or blocks. If it blocks, Power Slash its defensive staff away. If it throw its staff at Amaterasu, Power Slash the staff or evade.
Alternatively, to farm this demon, Amaterasu needs to use Golden Fury and the Thief's Glove on them (Hidden strike glitch recommended, because the Headless Guardian is very fragile). After these techniques are used on a certain Headless Guardian, scribble it with the Celestial Brush to temporarily blind it, thus force it to flail its arms in a blind attack. Execute a Sub-Reflector Counterattack on the flailing guardian to immediately kill it, gaining a Demon Fang in the process before using Cherry Bomb as its Floral Finisher.
