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.
Apply Debuffs and Status Ailments
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. You can also make use of Mona’s Lucky Punch skill in order to signal a critical hit. Finish it off with an all-out-attack.
Secure and Sustain Ann
Sometimes the mini-boss will focus on Ann and prepare for an attack, which when caught, deals big damage. When the boss casts its gaze on Ann, have her use Guard to withstand the attack or cast Dormina to the mini-boss. Also, sustain her with heals in the battle.
