General is the fifth and last bodyguard of Shogun. He is a high-ranking officer in Shogun's military army. General wields a unique type of glaive, which has a functioning ditto to the Sapphire Fang and Silver Glaive. Unlike all other bodyguards, he cannot be fought directly after beating the previous bodyguard. Before he can be fought, players need to defeat five mercenaries in a row without break, similar to Survival or Enemies in a row in Challenge. After these mercenaries defeated, however, the player does not need to fight General directly, and can be fought later if the player opts to. He later returns to fight for Shogun in the Interlude.
