In Sekiro, you will be faced with some choices that effect the outcome of the game. A lot of these choices might seem minor, but you can never be sure with a From game. Check out this Sekiro Shadows Die Twice choices and consequences guide to see what happens when you make certain choices.
Sekiro Choices And Consequences Guide
If you choose to fight him, you will find out that he cannot die. He offers his services to help you hone your skills if you want. He is one of the more important NPCs in the game.
He will wait until you are ready to face him.
The old woman asks what is wrong and then asks you to turn a bell into the Buddha shrine. This woman can be afflicted by the Dragonrot if you die enough, so be careful. If you use the bell and return to her, she will thank you. Be wary, this woman can be effected by the Dragonrot.
She will also be killed if you finish up Hirata Castle.
If you choose to answer, he will ask you to look in on his mother in the other room. If you already have, he will thank you and tell you she is losing her marbles.
He will die after you finish up the Hirata Castle area and beat the Butterfly lady.
He will say that you don’t remember That Night? You will say no and he will explain that he was once a thief but now he is a merchant. He will offer to sell you the info of that night for 50 Sen if you have it, and says he will stock up on items with it.
He will say it looks like you made it out safely and that he is relieved. He will not open the store until you ask him about “That night”
Pay 50 Sen
He will say that you meet while he and his gang were breaking into a castle. You were there looking for something, but he isn’t sure what. He says he can sell you other info for a price if you are interested.
If you say no, he says he will be waiting here for when you change your mind.
If you choose to help, he will hand you a note about the Rats and ask you to kill them. We have a guide on where to find the Rats here. Helping him should be required, he gives you a new skill list for killing the Rats.
If you decline to help him, he says he will wait here until you change your mind.
You will hear about Emma’s father Dogen, who created the prosthetic arm you now use. You will also get some backstory of the Sculptor himself.
I got this Sake from a boss, but I don’t remember which one. You learn that Lord Isshin was the one who took the Sculptor’s arm. He also mentions something about Shura.
You can buy this one from the NPC vendor right outside Miru village. I’ll admit, this one has me worried. If you roam around the village you learn that the Priest has been handing out Sake to the villagers. I’m not sure if this is the same Sake or not, but the priest Sake makes the villagers go mad.
If you choose to give him the Dragonspring Sake he will tell you a little bit about Emma and when they met. You will learn that Doegen adopted her after she was saved from a battlefield.
This is found up in the temple on Mt Kongo, near the white flower. He will tell you about when he trained as a Shinobi. He also brings up that he wasn’t alone and that his friend had a ring that made a howl.
If you greet him, he will ramble for a moment and you can try to get his attention again. If you do, he will introduce himself and ask if you hear the song he hears. The only response at the moment is that you do not.
He will ramble on about some noise he can hear, that you cannot currently hear.
Send Him To Bloody Surgeon
If you have met the Bloody Man in the Ashina Dungeon who hands you the Surgeons Bloody Letter, then you will get another option here as well. You can send him to see the Surgeon and you will rewarded with 3x lump of fat wax. Thanks to Ibze for the comment.
Talking to the Swordsman
The Lone Shadow Longswordsman doesn’t make a difference if you talk to him, if you talk behind him he will say something of the sort that he is looking for the wolf to kill him and if you talk again he turns around and attacks. Thanks to CrimsonKing for the comment.
He will say he thought so and asks if you will do him a favor. He will hand you a note that asks for One Tough Man. I believe it is asking for you to deliver one tough man somewhere. I am not sure where yet, I will update when I find out.
He says it doesn’t matter, maybe you can help him out. He will then give you the same letter you get for saying yes.
Ask Why He Is Crying
He will say he is all alone. He will talk about a pure white flower that he has to find. I don’t have it yet, I will update if I find it.
If you say nothing, he will say he was left here and he cannot find the flower.
Give Him The Red And White Pinwheel
If you find the red and white pinwheel you can hand it to the Crying Monk. He will say that is it red and white and that he is looking for pure white. He will say you are nice and you can then send him to a couple places.
This video will lead you to both the red and white pinwheel and the white pinwheel.
Lure Him To Abandoned Dungeon
If you send him down to the surgeon, you will be rewarded with three Lump of Fat Wax. If you return you can eavesdrop on the conversation the surgeon and his master are having as well. When you get the diving technique, you can go into the cell with the Crying Monk. If you go in, you will have to fight him because he is mad at you.
Tell Him About Anayama The Peddler
Anayama will welcome him with open arms and thank you for helping him out. Your reward will be new merchandise after a little while. This includes new metals, gunpowder and other upgrade materials.
Hand Him The Pure White Flower
The red and white pinwheel will let you send the Monk to another spot. The pure white pinwheel will remove that option. If you hand him the pure white pinwheel, he will ask you to spirit him away. You will need the Large Fan in order to do this, without it you can only refuse(Thanks to Nick for the comment). Even if you refuse, you cannot send him away after giving him the pure white pinwheel. The fan can be found near the Gun Fort waypoint, you have to beat the crazy slashing boss creature below to get it.
Spirit Him Away
If you spirit him away with the Divine Abduction, he will reappear once you make it to the Inner Sanctum of Senpou Temple. Your reward for this is a Taro Persimmon, which is needed for one of the endings. Thanks to Nick for the comment.
If you help him, he will go back to your camp after things settle down and he will sell items. You might help him accidentally just by killing the enemies in the area. He sells a Gourd Seed so you want him for that at least. So far, he hasn’t killed anyone in my camp so it seems okay to help him.
If you don’t help he will not go to your temple and just remain there.
If you choose to jump, have your finger on the grapple button on your way down. After falling for a few seconds you can grapple to a couple of different ledges that are jutting out, do so to avoid crashing into the bottom. This will also open up a new area, and that poison swamp that you always find in a From game.
If you choose this option, Wolf will say I cannot break the Iron Code.
Obey The Iron Code
You tell him that you cannot help, you have to protect him. Kuro will plead with you to help him sever immortal ties and Wolf ultimately agrees.
Obey The Iron Code Forsake Kuro
This will get you the bad ending. You still have two boss fights to do, but after that you beat the game. After you beat those two bosses you will be tosses into new game + so be wary.
Break The Iron Code Stay Loyal To Kuro
This is the path to the true ending, well one part of it at least. Choosing to keep aiding Kuro will result in more bosses and more areas. The game will end after you beat the final boss in this case. You will have to face Owl if you say this as well.
I Don’t know
She calls you a liar and the fight begins. Run if you don’t want to kill her.
She wants to know why everyone is hiding Sakuza from her and she will attack. Run if you don’t want to kill her.
I am currently looking for Lord Sakuza, though it seems like she might kill him if she finds him. I am not sure what happens if you kill her, I’ll test it after I find the lord.
If you choose to fight her, you can kill her. When she dies, she says that you must have come in lord Sakuza’s stead. If you return to the Melody Samurai and speak to him, he will tell you that O’rin spoke with him. He will give you a Jizo statue and then bites the dust. Thanks to TD10097 for the comment.
Ring The Bell
Ringing the Demon Bell will award you the Bell Demon. While you have this in your inventory the enemies will be harder, but have a chance to drop better loot. You can just discard the item to remove the effect. While the Bell Demon is in your inventory you will have a Sinister Burden attached to you.
If you give Isshin the Ashina Sake, he will tell you about the rebellion and the war.
If you give Isshin the Unrefined Sake, he will ask if you are offering him the Sake he gave you. He laughs and takes it anyways. He then asks about Genichiro and his fighting style.
Give Sakura Droplet
This will let you come back to life one more time before death. I have a hard time seeing the downside at the moment.
Keep Sakura Droplet
If you keep it, you do not get the third revive slot. At the moment I don’t know how this effects the ending or if it even does. From where I am, the extra revive is too good to pass up.
The Enlightened One will open a box and hand you the Mortal Blade. As you draw the blade, a weird red energy comes out and kills you. Death isn’t the end for you though, you come back and gain the Mortal Blade.
The Enlightened One tells you to rethink your choice about the blade, it has killed many who have drawn it.
Give Her Rice
If you give her the rice she goes into some weird trance. She says Fly the kite to get the fruit… Wind the puppet… Fly The kite.
You keep the rice and you can eat it to regenerate HP over time.
He will thank you and say that he must prepare for the beyond. He wants to be killed clean and painless. When you come back, he will be ready to die. Kill him and you will get the Hidden Tooth. This lets you die as much as you want just by biting it. You do lose your training buddy though.
I Do Not Wish To Kill You
He will say that he knows he can’t force you, but think it over. He wants to die.
If it is dried fruit you are after…. become a trainer of monkeys… make the monkey dance…. and he will be eaten. That is what she mumbles after eating the rice. Wolf says that he has to make a money dance, but isn’t sure what it means.
Keep The Rice
You can still eat the rice yourself to regenerate some HP.
Yes I Did
No I Did Not
He will suggest that you do smell it, even if it is faint. The next time you speak to him, you automatically smell it. You say it smells of saw dust and sakura flowers. Kuro will then mention that there is a sakura tree outside the castle and maybe you should check it out.
If you do not give her the Persimmon I am not sure what happens. She seemed very weak, so she might die without it.
Give Great White Whisker
If you give him the whisker, he will say that he is finally free of his duties. He will thank you can give you some Divine Grass for it.
Keep The Great White Whisker
You can hold on to it if you want, but he seems to the only one interested in the item so far.
