Start the battle by casting debuffs to the mini-boss. Joker can cast Sukunda and Rakunda while Panther can use Tarunda if its available to her. Panther’s role in this battle is very essential since she will cast Dormina on the mini-boss in order to prevent it from attacking. Another option is to use Slime which carries Evil Touch, a skill that has a high chance to cause Fear.

Aim for Technical Attacks or Critical Attacks

When the mini-boss is asleep or has fear, have Joker and Ryuji take turns smiting it with either a Physical or Gun skills. Repeat the same commands for a couple more turns until you knock it down.
