We've all had our occasional derpy moments. Especially getting caught by that green gas. We left hitting circle faster than a thread creator hitting f5 on their thread. But, using your samurai guardian in battle gives you a derp-proof guarantee that you will be saved in a jiffy with a slash of its sword.*
*Guarantee void if surrounded by oni. Too much derp for the guardian too handle.
He is handy, jumps into battle early, knows that I can handle a blue and red ogre at the same time. Stack ogres and save swings.
Sometimes I race him,... oh no you are not hitting this one before me. RAAA
Saved me a few times, like the blue ogre pushing me out of the green gas. Saved me from gas by dealing the death blow to cyclops, and from red ogres as well.
When fighting in skimpy outfits he is the finishing blow. One hit from him and one hit from me kills blue ogre.
The decoration is nice for the home.
I have 3 runs on youtube. Two in crimson armor and one in Oni bikini. All with guardian companion. http://www.youtube.com/user/hazgazemos
