For the Godmaster Icon Godmaster boss version see Brothers Oro & Mato.

Nailmaster Oro is one of three Nailmasters that teach Nail Arts.

Oro's signature Nail Art is the Dash Slash that he is willing to teach to The Knight for Geo‍800. The ability allows the Knight to dash forward while slashing.

Nailmaster Sheo mentions that Oro always seemed to be haunted by something, although Sheo never knew what. Oro and Nailmaster Mato seem to have had a conflict in the past, with Mato seeing Oro as an enemy and stating that Oro owes him something he will never forget. Oro himself says to the Knight that Mato will have to wait a bit longer before Oro gives him what he wants.

As of Godmaster Icon Godmaster, Oro can be a recipient of a Delicate Flower. When the Knight leaves the flower for him, he says that he has no use for it, and that he will throw it out if the Knight does not take it back. Despite this, the flower can be seen in a vase when the Knight returns to Oro.



First encounter
Hmph. How did you find me, down here where the world ends?

Yes, I know why you're here. You came to learn a Nail Art from the legendary Nailmaster Oro.

It is the law of the Great Nailsage that I must pass down my teachings to those who are worthy.

But no law forbids me from exacting a payment for my time. If you truly wish to train under me, prove it with Geo!

Subsequent offers of training
So what will it be, traveller? Will you pay the price asked of you, or will you leave this place unenlightened?

Refusal of training
"Those who do not share their strength will never learn." My master used to say that.

Substitute "Geo" for "strength" and you'll have my own views on the matter. Begone!

Talk again after training
I have taught you all I can. Go back into the world, traveller. Leave me to my solitude.

Revisit after training
You've returned, though you were not invited.

As my pupil, it is lawful that I allow you rest and shelter, but do not stay longer than you need to.

Talk again during revisit after training
Rest here if you must, but do not stay longer than you need to.

After learning Dash Slash
Hmph. I must say, you are an excellent pupil.

Your skill with the nail, and your thirst to become stronger... you remind me of my brothers.

I have taught you all I can. Go back into the world, traveller, and leave me to my solitude.

After acquiring Cyclone Slash
That Nail Art... you have been training with my brother Mato.

He has strange notions of loyalty and honour. I'm sure he was difficult and unpleasant to train under.

Did he mention my name to you? If he does, tell him to be patient. He'll be waiting a while longer before I give him what he wants.

After acquiring Great Slash
I see you've been taught a Nail Art by my brother Sheo. How fortunate of you.

Yes, he was the mightiest of the Great Nailsage's pupils, far outshining Mato and myself. My brother and my master loved him very much.

He was always aloof, but... not unkind. When we last spoke, he said he was going to teach himself something completely new. I wonder if he achieved that goal.

After acquiring Nailmaster's Glory
That charm you bear... It seems the Great Nailsage has deemed you skilled enough in the Nail Arts to earn his highest esteem.

I do not begrudge you his love. You have earned it.

And perhaps by helping you along your path, I have redeemed myself... if only a little.

Dream Nailed
Brother Mato, in your lonely home at the top of the world... do you still think of me as an enemy?

In the future, if you will listen... I will tell you why I chose to tread this path.

Godmaster Icon Delicate Flower

After giving Delicate Flower
What is this? Do you think it becoming for a pupil to drop rubbish in their master's home? Or is this gaudy flower your idea of a gift?

I've no use for such things. Take it with you, or else I'll toss it outside to be eaten by vermin.


Nailmaster Oro is found in Kingdom's Edge


  • Oro is the only Nailmaster who must be paid in order to learn his Nail Art.
  • To the east of Oro's house is the impaled corpse of a Great Hopper dressed in a Nailmaster outfit, most likely used as a training dummy. Attacking it with the Dream Nail reveals the dialogue: "Stronger... Brothers..."
    • This dream dialogue is most likely referring to what takes place if the player attacks the corpse enough times (25 attacks), whereafter two live Great Hoppers fall from the ceiling and attack The Knight. The two Great Hoppers representing Sheo and Mato, Oro's brothers who he might have felt inferior to.
    • Sitting at a bench will reset the dummy and it can be attacked again to summon two more Great Hoppers.
Nailmaster flower
  • Godmaster Icon After being given a Delicate Flower, Oro will not really toss it like he said he would, instead, after leaving and re-entering the hut it will be kept in a vase.
