The Hidden Tooth can be acquired by visiting the Dilapidated Temple in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. However, before you head off to the Dilapidated Temple, you’ll first need to unlock the Mortal Blade. To unlock the Mortal Blade, be sure to check out our previous guide on the subject. With the Mortal Blade unlocked and in your possession, you can travel to the Dilapidated Temple.

Inside the Dilapidated Temple, interact with an NPC named Hanbei. As you learn more about Hanbei’s plight, you’ll be tasked with helping him die. To do this, you must defeat Hanbei in combat. By defeating Hanbei, you’ll receive the Hidden Tooth as a reward. With the Hidden Tooth, you can use it to kill Sekiro whenever you feel the need.

Unlike dying in combat, using the Hidden Tooth to die is useful in that you’ll have a longer period of resurrection. As such, you’ll be able to regroup during a difficult fight, and even get a few attacks in before the enemy notices you. You can also get your second resurrection up without having to wait as long as you would when dying organically.

While we don’t recommend using the Hidden Tooth as a strategy, as death has consequences in Sekiro, it can be a useful tool if you’re struggling through a boss fight and have exhausted all other options.
