Shadow Madarame Boss Guide
Shadow Madarame has two forms. One form is the picture frames and one is the main body. The picture frames can be annoying to put down, but the main body isn’t so bad. However, if you don’t take down the main body fast enough, he can regenerate his framed form.
Tips: Was able to beat this guy around level 18. Had Shiisaa and Jack Frost on me and my teammates were around 17-16 as well. There’s a way, but it can get rather dragging. Teammates used at this time were Yusuke, Morgana (he had Media at this time,) and Ann.
Each part possesses the same stat distributions but varies in the attributes they drain. The mouth drains Phys and Gun, thes eye drain Fire, Ice, Elec, and Wind, and the nose drains the remaining attributes save for Almighty.
1) Bite (Mouth)
Single target physical attack.
2) Tarukaja (Eye)
Buffs attack of an ally for three turns.
3) Rakunda (Eye)
Debuffs the target’s defense for three turns.
4) Flame Dance
Moderate fire damage to a single target
5) Silent Snowscape
Moderate ice damage to a single target
Moderate electric damage to a single target.
Moderate wind damage to a single target.
8) The Artist’s Grace (All)
Debuffs a single, target making it weak to all damage types.
9) Restore (All)
Raises one fallen part with 1/4 HP.
1) Madara Megido
Light Almighty damage on the entire party.
1) Debuff its Parts
In his painting form, Madarame is comprised of several parts+ eyes, nose, and mouth. In this form, he can use a variety of elemental spells like Garu, Zio, and Agi spells. Take note that he can also restore a missing body part with 25% HP after one has been defeated. When he does so, immediately kill the newly restored body part. If he transforms into a painting a second time, he’ll have a new ability: Artist’s Grace. This allows him to make a character weak to all elements. His mouth can be a bit of a pest, as it will bite a target every now and then. To make things worse, the mouth heals whenever hit by physical attacks whereas the eyes heal if hit with magic attacks.
Have a Rakunda/Tarunda set up can make things easier. If you don’t have Tarunda, use Rakukaja. Use Rakunda if it is available as well. In my case, Shiisaa had the debuff after fusing him with a Jack Frost that had Rakunda and a Makami with Frei. Use Rakunda on any (non-nose) part of the face.
If you want to make it quick, use Rakunda on the eyes first. Keep Morgana on Media duty for now. Next, have Ann cast Tarunda every now and then on the mouth. Yusuke can focus on physically beating down the enemy. Multi-target attacks may heal the mouth, but you can’t heal what hasn’t been damaged.
After felling the eyes, cast magic on the mouth. If one of your Persona has Tarukaja, buff either Ann or Yusuke.
Once that’s down, he’ll change into his main form.
2) Stop him from using Artist’s Grace
When he’s in this form, the phase starts with an all-out attack. After dealing the damage, have Joker cast Rakunda every now and then. Ann can swap between Agi and Tarunda while Yusuke lays it thick with Bufu and Giant Slice. Have Morgana dedicated to using Media. The main body isn’t that tough. He’ll use an Almighty spell every now and then, but it shouldn’t be that damaging as long as he’s affected by Tarunda or you’re affected by Rakukaja.
If you don’t kill him in one turn, he’ll go back to his first form. If you beat him in this form then he won’t have a chance to use Artist’s Grace. This requires your level to be in the late 20’s.
