Persona 5 Bosses
This page contains the list of the bosses that you’ll encounter while exploring the different palaces and dungeons in Persona 5. Click the name of a boss for an in-depth guide on how to beat them.
Kamoshida palace is the first palace you investigate and where you awaken your powers as the Joker. The main boss in Kamoshida palace is Shadow Kamoshida, and his Palace has some mini-bosses for you to deal with. Some of these bosses include Eligor and Bicorn. Another is a Torn Fragment of Desire, somewhat resembling Mara. However, he himself doesn’t really have a special mechanic other than needing a particular member to knock down the treasure.
In the New Game Plus, you can easily defeat him when summoning a high ranking persona.
- Shadow Kamoshida/Asmodeus
Madarame Palace has at least three mini-boss fights. One is when Yusuke Kitagawa joins your party and fight Nue. Another is when you’re halfway through the palace and enter the Main Hall to fight Shiki-Ouji.
- Shadow Kaneshiro/Bael
World of Qliphoth
The beauty of the World of Qliphoth is that it’s so farm-able. You can quickly run through the dungeon over and over again to earn money, which carries over to your next play through. Alternatively, you can gain enough levels to fuse the bigger Persona such as Satan (Judgement), Michael (Justice), Alice (Death), or Vishnu (Fool).
Mementos is a general palace where the unconsciousness of all the populace congregates. A majority of the time, you’ll encounter many mini-bosses as a result of requests. Often times, Yuki Mishima will provide requests for the Phantom Thieves to go after. However, there are also times that you have to find the name of the targets yourself. This may include using the different facilities or dealing with the confidant themselves.
- Optional Boss: Thanatos
- Optional Boss: Justine & Caroline
- Treasure of Mementos
