Carry SP Recovery Items
Before engaging the boss, make sure that you have a stock of SP recovery items. These items can be bought from accessible vending machines in Yongen-jaya and Shibuya Central Street.
Start the battle by landing multiple debuffs on Mad Rabbit Alice. Debuffs can be in the form of attack decrease (Tarunda), defense decrease (Rakunda), and evasion/critical evasion decrease (Sukunda). These debuffs can be accessed by Joker (from Arsene and other personas), Panther, and Sophia.
Follow-up the debuffs with party members buffs. Buffs can be in the form of attack increase (Tarukaja), defense decrease (Rakukaja), and evasion/critical evasion increase (Sukukaja). These buffs can only be accessed by Joker (from other personas).
Use Fire and Wind Attacks
Mad Rabbit Alice struggles handling Fire and Wind attacks which are Panther, Mona, and to some extent, Joker’s specialty. Joker can opt to either stick to healing support with Pixie, or go offensive with persona like Jack-o’-Lantern. Continue on breaking the shields until you stagger the boss. Also, make sure to use narrow range tier 1 elemental skills since they consume less SP.
Capitalize on Area Gimmicks
When Mad Rabbit Alice and your party stands near the center close to the dancing pole, make use of the pole to deal additional damage.
If your character is away from the center, use the Wind Crackers placed within the battlefield to hit the boss from a distance. It will also break boss’ stagger gauge shield
Keep your distance
When Mad Rabbit Alice’s health is down to around 50% or less, it will become aggressive and quickly move around the arena. In addition, avoid sticking close to her since she can inflict status ailments Brainwash with Brain Jack. If some party members got inflicted, the boss will use Mapsi and deal technical damage.
