Here is a breakdown of the battle strategies against the boss:
Equip Kamudo Magatama
Before the battle, make sure the Protagonist or Demi-fiend is wearing a Kamudo Magatama. This Magatama nullifies Physical attacks.
Be familiar with boss attacks and skills
Make it a point to get familiar with the attacks and skills of the boss. Adjust your strategy when the boss uses skills like Provoke and Bullet Time.
Use Magic Attacks
Dante does have resistance to magic attacks but it can still receive damage from it. Make sure you and your other ally demons have access to strong tier Fire, Ice, Electricity, and Force skills.
Land debuffs on the boss while leaving some MP for healing. Debuffs can be in the form of attack power decrease (Tarunda/War Cry), defense power decrease (Rakunda), and hit/evasion power decrease (Sukunda/Fog Breath). These debuffs can be accessed by demons in your party.
Prioritize on landing Sukunda/Fog Breath first. Followed by Rakunda and Tarunda/War Cry.
Cast buffs on your party members as well. Buffs can be in the form of attack power increase (Tarukaja), magic power increase (Makakaja), defense power increase (Rakukaja), and hit/evasion power increase (Sukukaja). These buffs can be accessed by demons in your party.
Prioritize on landing Sukukaja first. Followed by Tarukaja/Makakaja, and Rakukaja.
In addition to buffs, you can also use attacks further by using Focus (next Physical and Almighty deals x2.5 damage). This damage buff can be accessed by demons in your party.
Use Phys attacks
Similarly, the boss also has resistance to physical attacks. However, it can still receive damage from it so keep using physical skills. If you don’t have them, just rely on your high-level demons and deal normal attacks instead.
Keep the party’s HP sustained by using healing skills. Especially when other party members are using HP-consuming Physical skills.
