Encountered In: Kamoshida Palace Walkthrough


In order to have a much easier battle against this boss, you need to at least have the following skills in your arsenal:

  • Tarunda – Decrease 1 foe’s Attack power for 3 turns.
  • Headbutt – Deal medium Phys damage and inflict Forget (medium odds) to 1 foe.
  • Dia – Slightly restore 1 ally’s HP.
  • Media – Slight restore party’s HP.

As soon as the battle begins focus on attacking Asmodeus. Once you have weakened him, he will begin to gobble on the thing clinging on his trophy. After he heals once, target all your attacks on his Trophy, as this prevents him from patching himself up back to full HPAvoid spending too much SP during the first half of the fight as Asmodeus’ Volleyball Assault, which deals 2 strikes to two members, does not deal significant damage at this rate.

With the Trophy out of the way, you are free to use the All-Out Attack. After destroying the Trophy, you will resume with the “Get Back Treasure Mission.” Initiate by sending Ryuji or Morgana off while leaving Anne because the latter will result in a failure. Be wary of his Gold Medal Spike as well, since it will strike all members with a powerful damage. For this phase, bring everyone’s Guard up to prevent suffering too much damage from this AoE.

His Golden Knife Skill is concerning as it deals severe damage to one ally. Try to preserve Anne in the party as her Tarunda should weaken Asmodeus’ attack, making the battle more manageable to counter against his Attack buff Skill – Lustful Slurp. After sufficient stalling, the sent ally should distract Asmodeus, enabling the party to strike him while crippled with heavy damage to finish off this boss fight.
