Dodge Phys Attacks

Keep evading physical attacks like Megaton Raid and Vorpal Blade from Siegfried. Otherwise, your character or party member may end up in Dizzy status. In addition, getting susceptible for upcoming technical damage from the boss.

Cure Inflicted Ailments

Persona 5 Strikers - Kyoto Jail Powerful Shadow Brilliant Dragonslayer Siegfried Cure Status Ailments

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

Use Wind and Nuke Attacks

Persona 5 Strikers - Kyoto Jail Powerful Shadow Brilliant Dragonslayer Siegfried Use Wind Attacks

Siegfried is weak to Wind and Nuclear attacks which Mona, Queen, 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 - Kyoto Jail Powerful Shadow Brilliant Dragonslayer Siegfried Use Terrain Gimmicks

Lure the boss near the motorbike and destroy it. Apart from the massive damage to Siegfried, it will also inflict a Burn status effect to the boss. This gives your more opportunities to deal technical damage.

Deal Technical Damage using Wind and Nuke Attacks

Persona 5 Strikers - Kyoto Jail Powerful Shadow Brilliant Dragonslayer Siegfried Use Technical Attacks

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

Unleash Showtime Attacks

While engaging Siegfried, 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.
