Start the battle by landing multiple debuffs on Black Frost. Debuffs can be in the form of attack power decrease (Tarunda), defense power decrease (Rakunda), and evasion/critical evasion power decrease (Sukunda). These debuffs can be accessed by Joker (from Arsene and other Personas) and Sophie. Another option is by using Debilitate for an all-in-one debuff. This special debuff can be accessed by Joker (from other Personas).

Cast Buffs

Avoid Elemental Attacks

Persona 5 Strikers - Shibuya Jail Powerful Shadow Fallen Snowman Black Frost Evade Ice Attacks

Keep evading ice attacks like Mabufudyne and Diamond Dust from Black Frost. Otherwise, your character or party member may end up frozen and susceptible for upcoming technical damage from the boss. You may use subway station entrances and buses to block the attacks.

Cure Inflicted Ailments

Persona 5 Strikers - Shibuya Jail Powerful Shadow Fallen Snowman Black Frost Cure Status Ailments

If a party member got inflicted with an ailment such as Freeze, make sure that you have access to a Status Recovery skill called Amrita Drop or Amrita Shower to cure it. You can also use status recovery items to remove the status ailment if available. Status Recovery skills can be accessed by Joker (from other Personas) and Noir.

Deal Technical Damage using Phys, Gun, and Psy Attacks

Persona 5 Strikers - Shibuya Jail Powerful Shadow Fallen Snowman Black Frost Use Psychokinesis Attacks

When the boss is inflicted with a status ailment such as Shock, deal technical damage by using Physical and Gun attacks. You can also inflict technical damage when the boss is afflicted with a mental ailment such as Fear using Psychokinesis attacks. Switch between Joker, Skull, and Noir to avoid running out of SP.

Use Bless Attacks

Persona 5 Strikers - Shibuya Jail Powerful Shadow Fallen Snowman Black Frost Use Bless Attacks

Black Frost is weak to Bless attacks which Sophie and Joker can capitalize. Continue on using elemental attacks in order to break the shields and stagger the boss. Make use of narrow range elemental skills if you’re close and wide range elemental skills if you’re far from the boss.

Capitalize on Terrain Gimmicks

Persona 5 Strikers - Shibuya Jail Powerful Shadow Fallen Snowman Black Frost Use Terrain Gimmicks

If Black Frost is near to a light post, you can use a Phantom Dash to deal additional physical damage to the boss. Maximize the damage dealt before it is able to retaliate.

Unleash Showtime Attacks

While engaging Black Frost, you may build up your showtime gauge. When it’s available, unleash the showtime attack against the boss. If Joker’s showtime attack is available, make sure he has the right Persona that can capitalize on the weakness of the boss. Also, there is a consumable item that will quickly boost your Showtime gauge build up so feel free to use it against the boss.

  1. It may be useful to note that on merciless mode, Fallen Snowman is
    physical-normal
    gun-normal
    fire-null
    ice-drain
    electric-strong
    wind-strong
    psi-strong
    nuclear-null
    bless-weak
    curse-drain
    so the usefulness of Skull and Noir is greatly reduced.
