If a party member got inflicted with an ailment such as Freeze or Dizzy, 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 or mental ailment if available. Status Recovery skills can be accessed by Joker (from other Personas).

Use Fire Attacks

Persona 5 Strikers - Sapporo Jail Powerful Shadow Monarch of Snow King Frost Use Fire Attacks

King Frost is weak to Fire attacks which Panther 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 - Sapporo Jail Powerful Shadow Monarch of Snow King Frost Terrain Gimmick Ice Block

If King Frost is beside the movable ice block, you can use a Phantom Dash and shove it towards the boss in order inflict a mental ailment.

Deal Technical Damage using Wind and Nuke Attacks

Persona 5 Strikers - Sapporo Jail Powerful Shadow Monarch of Snow King Frost Use Nuke Attacks

When the boss is inflicted with a status ailment such as Burn, deal technical damage by using Wind and Nuclear attacks. You can also inflict technical damage when the boss is afflicted with a mental ailment using Psychokinesis attacks. Switch between Joker, Mona, and Queen to avoid running out of SP.

Unleash Showtime Attacks

Persona 5 Strikers - Sapporo Jail Powerful Shadow Monarch of Snow King Frost Unleash Showtime Attacks

While engaging King 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.
