Carry SP Recovery Items

Before engaging the boss, bring a stock of HP and SP recovery items. These items can be bought from accessible vending machines, food stands, store, and restaurants.

Joker’s Kitchen Guide

Land Debuffs

Persona 5 Strikers - Okinawa Jail Dire Shadow Wandering Reviver Nebiros Land Debuffs

Start the battle by landing multiple debuffs on Nebiros. 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), Mona and Panther. 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

These buffs can be accessed by Joker (from other Personas) and Skull. Another option is by using Heat Riser for an all-in-one buff. This special buff can be accessed by Joker (from other Personas).

Dodge Instant Death Attacks

Persona 5 Strikers - Okinawa Jail Dire Shadow Wandering Reviver Nebiros Dodge Instant Death Attacks

Observe the upcoming attacks of the boss and check whether it is about to use Instant Death skill such as Hamaon or Mudoon. You can counter it by moving to another spot or by casting the special support skill, Tetraja, to all of your party members. This special buff can be accessed by Joker (from other Personas).

Use Fire, Elec, and Wind Attacks

Persona 5 Strikers - Okinawa Jail Dire Shadow Wandering Reviver Nebiros Use Wind Attacks

Nebiros is weak to Fire, Electricity, and Wind attacks which Panther, Skull, Mona, and Joker can take advantage. 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.

Deal Technical Damage using Phys, Gun, Wind, and Nuke Attacks

When the boss is inflicted with a status ailment such as Burn, deal technical damage by using Wind and Nuclear attacks. Likewise, when the boss is inflicted with a Shock status, use a Physical, Gun or Nuclear attack to hit it with Technical damage. Switch between Joker, Skull, and Mona to avoid running out of HP and SP.

Capitalize on Terrain Gimmicks

Persona 5 Strikers - Okinawa Jail Dire Shadow Wandering Reviver Nebiros Use Terrain Gimmicks

If Nebiros is beside a pole or scaffolding, 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 Nebiros, 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. I would highly recommend bringing and using Arahabaki against this boss. As long as you’re wary of it’s physical attack, Bloodbath, it’s a cakewalk, because all of his Bless/Curse attacks will do 0 damage to you.
