I like to call this one the Kutku of Carapaceons. He might look pretty nasty with the Monoblos-skull on the back, but in fact he’s pretty easy to kill. My prefered weapon here would be the hammer. Depending on the strength or level of the Daimyo, you can either directly go for his face (NOT the skull) and try to knock him out or, if you’re not able to deal enough damage in time, attack from the side.

Daimyos attacks aren’t really dangerous as long as you’re not behind him. If you are, he will charge at you and to pierce you with the monoblos-horn. In case you’re standing in front of him, he’ll spit a blast of water. So attacking from the side is safe. The only attack he has here is to pinch you with his claws, which only deals little damage.
