Some tips for Revengenace Monsoon No Damage

I don't consider myself amazing at this game, but I have managed to beat Monsoon with no damage on Revengeance and would like to share some tips that I used.

I followed the strategy used in Lumen's video for the most part. Use the X+A dodge instead of parrying in the first stage of the fight as it is safer than trying to parry all of his attacks and does damage as well. After that, I just do normal pincer blade attacks while using X+A to dodge if he decided to try and attack. Once you take him to 70% HP, he will be dazed and take less damage for a couple seconds, during this I wail on him with the Pincer Blades, during this phase I have managed to take him down to 65% HP on some tries.
When doing the Lumen Force (I think thats what it is called) I like to turn my camera to the right slightly so that I can more easily see the distance between me and the garbage pile so i can time my parry accordingly.

Before the Berserk phase switch to the Sai. When he does the first arm hit, counter-parry and then hit him with the Sai, this is easier than counter-parrying both hands.

For the rest of the fight, I followed Lumen's strategies. Just wanted to share those few things.

Wow that actually makes it very easy. I wish I knew that when I was going for the no damage on hard but after couple hours I got the parry timing down for his arms and legs. Very good tip!

Thanks to Rep for this sick picture!

Another easy way of getting him down to 70% (rest is easy) is to just keep sliding towards him with Y (while ninja running) and enter blade mode (while sliding) to do that sliding slash move (forgot whats its called). It'll slow everything down and you can get him down to 70% doing this three times. Sometimes he'll do that smoke grenade attack or jump on you when u come out of the slide but I found it easier than trying to parry all his moves.
