How to defeat Kingdom Hearts 3’s Xemnas
Forward Rolling Glide Attack
Xemnas jumps up into the sky, holding a lightsaber in each hand. He then rushes toward Sora while doing a forward roll. He does not change direction while moving.
Flying Spinning Slash
While jumping, Xemnas swings his weapons to hit Sora and his allies.
Xemnas does a cross slash and an X-shaped crack appears inn the ground underneath him. The cross slash creates shockwaves that fly outward and damage Sora and his allies.
Rising Double Slash
Xemnas does a quick combination which finishes with a midair rising slash. This is especially deadly if Sora jumps around him.
Four orbs appear around Xemnas and deal elemental magic damage depending on their color. Blue colored orbs mean that he is casting Thundaga.
These orbs expand when Sora or his allies touch them. This makes evading Xemnas’ attacks difficult.
Firaga Magic Attack
Red orbs appear over Sora and company.
Afterward, the red orbs fall and deal moderate damage.
Strategy against Xemnas
Pay Attention to His Attack Pattern
Xemnas is one of the fastest bosses in the game. Although his slashing attacks are not that damaging individually, he can string them together to deal massive amounts of damage. As such, it is best to let him rush to you and study his attack patterns. This way, you can decide when to strike back and eventually defeat one of Organization XIII’s deadliest members.
