The Yiga Clan were always a little pain. They would stop you, decide to fight you, and then you could just open a can of whoopass on them and continue your way.

But after clearing the hideout, now there's the guards that spawn every once in a while. And they are not like their old counter parts. They WILL one shot you.

Is there a way to stop/prevent them from spawning? A side quest to do that will make their random attacks stop? It's pretty annoying that out of nowhere I have to run away ASAP.

    I've found tagging them with an ice arrow and pulling your biggest weapon out helps.

    If the Yiga are one-shotting you after you cleared their hideout, you should focus on getting more hearts and/or upgrading your armor. Yiga blademasters are coded to one-shot kill in the hideout, but after that, they deal damage normally. Once you get decent armor, they're more of an annoyance that anything. Apr 2, 2017 at 21:33
  • Yeah Gerudo was my 2nd dungeon so I was still pretty squishy. Later on they are a lot less of a problem.

You cannot prevent this from happening. Hey, at least they drop some nice and powerful items. You can, however, run away and not look back.

    In this game the run away technic fastly becomes the most optimal option against minions.
