|Found in||Infinity Blade I|
When you enter the Dungeon of the castle, it is recommended that you face Kuero first before any other of the three Deathless Kings for the following reasons:
- He has the lowest level of the three Deathless Kings.
- He drops the Dragoor Scale, which can be helpful when fighting the other Deathless Kings and the Zero Mech.
To get to him, you must have defeated the God King and obtained the Infinity Blade. Once you have it, head to the Dungeon of the castle, where you will be able to use the Blade as a key, unlocking three doors in the area. Kuero is located in the middle door, the one slightly to the right. He is level 50 in the OG. In his chamber, you will find him meditating on the end of the ledge which can be walked on.
Kuero's chamber contains spikes with rotting corpses hanging on them. This suggests that Kuero is rather sadistic, or that he is actually some kind of man-eater. His facial features are concealed by his hood and mask.
Kuero returns in Infinity Blade II with an appearance in several ClashMob battles. At times, he is referred to in ClashMob descriptions as the "dark ninja". The description states that he wants retribution. His voicebox is portrayed to be a Plated Sorok, with an Iron Golem's growl.
While Kuero does not directly appear in Infinity Blade III (having been killed by Siris in the first game), there is a map called Kuero's Cache. The enemy Kuro Shino in the Pinnacle Monastery also appears, fights and sounds identical to Kuero. He always has resistance to fire and ice, and no attack element.
Kuero is a very fast dual-wielding enemy. Some of his regular attacks can be deceptive, as the usual visual cues with other enemies are simply ploys. Overall, though, he can be quite easily defeated with a small amount of practice; two locations of twin-blade enemies at the players' level are in the Cellar and on the Balcony. Much like the God King, it's advised that the player sticks to dodging Kuero's attacks, as parrying is risky because of the unpredictability of his attacks, and Kuero's speed will quickly wear out the player's shield.
Before engaging Kuero, it's advised that the player equip a shield with immunity to the Fire element. The Dragoor Bone dropped by Gortoel possesses this quality. Kuero is immune to Fire and Ice so it is advised that you don't use the Dragoor Blade dropped by Ealoseum and use Drain, Shock, Light, Dark, and Poison instead as they are all effective against him. The best weapon overall for combatting Kuero would be the Infinity Blade because of its high damage.
Have a good shield with a high durability stat and rely primarily on blocking. He rarely uses a fury attack but is fast. Simply block his attacks and strike back whenever you can until he falls.
However, if the player has enough skills and quick reflexes in parrying, it is recommended that you parry most of his attacks for a parry break (except for the ones involving kicks since those you can only block or dodge) since it gives the largest hit-window. Kuero's attacks are generally like any dual-weaponed enemy so if the player has exceptional skills and can parry the attacks of dual weaponed enemies, then it is recommended to parry most of his attacks.
Another way to kill him quickly after he does a power attack, is to tap his head after he runs and tries to kick you. You will memorize when he does this after facing him multiple times. Another time you could stab him is right after he does his jumping flip attack. Simply dodge this attack, for it takes awhile for him to reach you, and then tap his head to stab him.
- It is possible that Kuero is part of House Kor because the Kuero's Cache Map is found there, and the Kuro Shino enemy that looks like him is only found in Act IV.
- Kuro Shino is called Dark Ninja in the Japanese version of IB3.
