achibana Muneshige has three attack phases, each with distinct cues.
In the first phase, Muneshige Tachibana will attempt to remain close, hitting hard and fast with the intent to stagger into a lethal combo. The key to this fight in any of the three phases is to remain just out of reach while being close enough to punish him for missing, mainly by keeping his Ki from recharging. At any point in the fight he may activate his special blade ability, which is cued by him crowing about beholding the power of lightning. This is basically him using a lightning talisman on his sword, but be careful as this does give him extra oomph to his already hard-hitting attacks.
