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), Panther, 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

Cure Inflicted Ailments

If a party member got inflicted with an ailment such as Shock, 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).

Use Fire, Ice, and Bless Attacks

Persona 5 Strikers - Sendai Jail Dire Shadow Snake King Raja Naga Use Fire Attacks

Raja Naga is weak to Fire, Ice, and Bless attacks which are Panther, Fox, 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.

Deal Technical Damage using Phys, Gun, and Nuke Attacks

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

Unleash Showtime Attacks

Persona 5 Strikers - Sendai Jail Dire Shadow Snake King Raja Naga Showtime Attack

While engaging Raja Naga, 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.
