Yakuza attacks by firing fireballs and it can also grab Samus and slam her into the ground. Samus can damage it by firing directly at into its mouth as it is preparing to shoot its fireballs. She can also break free from its grab by struggling left and right. After she damages it enough, Yakuza will start jumping through the air, dropping projectiles as it does. During this time, it can be damaged at any time by a shot to its mouth.
Once Samus defeats it, she acquires the Space Jump. Yakuza exhibits jumping capabilities that the Space Jump would normally offer.
