Devil May Cry 4 - Secret Mission 08 -- Royal Blocker

When: Mission 07: The She-Viper (only Dante can complete this one, so wait until Mission 14: Forest of Ruin)
Where: Forest Entrance
Objective: Execute a royal block 5 times.

This mission can be quite difficult, especially if you aren't familiar with the Royal Guard style. You're put into a room with a pair of Mephistos and must successfully perform Royal Block five times in a row. To use the Royal Block skill, have the Royal Guard style toggled, and press the Style Action button just before an enemy's attack hits. If you get hit by one of the Mephistos after a successful execution, the chain resets to zero. You can, however, kill one of the Mephistos to make things a bit easier.

Clearing this mission is all about timing, but there seems to be a little bit of luck involved, too. If you're having a lot of trouble doing this, there is one thing you could try, but it comes with absolutely no guarantee of success. First, kill one of the two Mephistos, then hold the lock-on button and basically mash the Style Action button. Sure, Dante's going to look pretty silly while doing this, but it is surprisingly effective. The only attack you'll want to avoid while doing this is the Mephisto's tail swipe, as it very difficult to block.

Other than that, there doesn't seem to be a surefire way to clear this one. Just practice, practice, practice and try, try again until you can pull it off. Once you've succeeded, collect the Blue Orb Fragment that appears to clear the mission.
