Mini-Boss Strengths and Weakness
|Skill Name||Skill Effect|

Boss Strategies (Both Versions)
Here is a breakdown of the battle strategies against the mini-boss. This applies to both Persona 5 and Persona 5 Royal unless otherwise specified.
Exploit Fire Weakness
Use Agi skills to down the mini-boss quickly. Then, follow-up with an All-out Attack. If Joker has a Jack-0′-Lantern, he can also use its Agi skill to exploit the enemy’s weakness.
Brace for Magaru
A disadvantage of wielding a Jack-o’-Lantern persona is your susceptibility to Wind attacks. This also includes Skull who is innately weak to Wind due to his Captain Kidd persona. When the mini-boss unleashes its Magaru skill, make sure that all party members are healed by Mona afterwards.
