Samael (Death)

Samael Persona Overview

Samael boasts incredible versatility with powerful offensive and defense skills. Among its most powerful attacks is Megido (Almighty) which deals fixed damage regardless of the enemy’s elemental affinities. Samael can also use Mamudo and Mudoon to quickly wipe out single targets or entire enemy teams in a flash.

Outside of dealing damage, Samael is also a strong debuffer with its Masukunda skill which lowers the enemy team’s Hit and Evasion. Samael can also grant your own party immunity against stat debuffs using Dekunda, giving the Persona even more flexibility in battle.

Leanan Sidhe (Empress)

Leanan Sidhe Persona Overview

Leanan Sidhe is among the best support-debuffers during the middle stages with access to two party-wide healing skills, Me Patra (removes Panic, Fear, and Distress), and can reliably Charm the entire enemy team in battle.

Leanan Sidhe is a good replacement for Lilim, especially since the former can learn up to 4 skill types via inheritance.

Another advantage Leanan Sidhe enjoys is her good elemental affinity which does not feature any weaknesses to any attribute whatsoever.

Shiisaa (Hierophant)

Shiisaa Persona Overview

Shiisaa’s access to a variety of very good all-target attacks (Ice, Shock, and Slash) allow him to quickly sweep enemy teams quickly while exploring Tartarus. Shiisaa also boats resistance against Light skills which means that he can avoid instant kill attacks specific to the element.

Shiisaa’s weakness to Fire can somewhat be compensated by its Dodge Fire skill, though be ready to use healing skills or items when enemy attacks do land from time to time.

Hua Po (Magician)

Hua Po Persona Overview

One of the best Flame attackers you can get during the mid-game stages is Hua Po who uses strong Fire skills to damage one or more enemies in battle. Her damage output goes up even more when she learn Fire Boost at level 24.

Hua Po can also cover support and debuff duties by being able to help allies from the Downed state using Re Patra and having access to the useful single-target defense debuff Rakunda. To expand Hua Po’s utility even more, you can try giving her healing and party buff skills via inheritance.

Naga Raja Persona Overview

Naga Raja is a strong Physical attacker with exceptional mid-game utility thanks to its Matarukaja party-wide attack buff and ability to reliably inflict Panic on all targets in battle. Against enemies weak to Electricity, Naga Raja has Mazionga as a good elemental option.

Affinity-wise, Naga Raja can block Electricity which allows it to perform extremely well against the Hermit story boss encountered in September.

Virtue (Justice)

Virtue Persona Overview

Virtue’s Hamaon instant death skill can reliably take out single targets instantly thanks to its high sucess rate. Against multiple targets, Virtue can instead use Maham but at lower rates of triggering immediate KO.

With these strong Light skills, Virtue gains the advantage against many mid-game enemies with little to no resistance against Light-type abilities. Try pairing Virtue with Samael to cover both Dark and Light instant kill options during battle.
