Character Jobs List

Strategy

Use Poison.

Joon-Gi Han can use poison to deplete Majima and Saejima’s HP each turn, making it a viable strategy to defeat them. Note that the pair are considerably stronger than any bosses you have faced thus far in the story so any means of constant damage helps in beating them.

Majima’s Clone Summon

Among Majima’s most dangerous skills is his ability to create three copies of himself during the fight. It is recommended to use Kasuga’s ranged attacks and Zhao’s Whirlwind Sword Dance to quickly take the clones out.

Debuffs

Take advantage of Majima’s susceptiblity to debuffs that reduce his hit rate, particularly Flashlight. You can also lower his defense with Zhao’s Burning Turtle skill.

Majima and Saejima

When Hajima’s HP drops to 50%, Saejima will appear, allowing the pair to unleash a powerful attack called Goro Blade Duo Kill. The move does a staggering 350 damage to targets so it is recommended to keep your HP near full at all times when Saejima enters the battle. You can also use Brave Obsession in advance to help you get through the fight.

  1. Grind until level 50 and it should be a just a boss fight with some actual strategy. Hell the most painful part of this fight for me was widdling down Saejima’s health after downing Majima because the dude is a living tank with resistances to EVERYTHING I swear.

  2. You know you’re in for a rough time when the boss has his own OST and opening animation.

    Definitely grind in the Sotenbori Battle Arena before this fight, because this is where the difficulty curve of the game spikes. The bosses will also get two attacks per round, so make sure to have at least two teammates with healing skills or a ton of items.

  3. IF YOU ARE HAVING ISSUES:
    Just run the Sotenbori Battle Arena 3-5 times, make sure you get on level. Joon-Gi is your best friend in this fight. Take him down Foreman, Host, and Fortuneteller to get the job skills and it will be a breeze.

    • Right like ive been leveling normally for a while and doing changing each job to get some part time hero stuff done and this is the first fight ive just been utterly outclassed and felt like a stop gate to go grind and had to stop and read a guide and reload a save so i didnt loose a couple mill

    • I went in with level 40 foreman adachi, idol eri, hitman joon, and hero kasuga. I kept putting up with clone majimas until he was about 3/4 if the way down. Only after killing the clones did saejima come in. Was able to kill majimas but struggled like hell with the other. Luckily I had two rocket launchers which took about 2/3 of his health and was able to get through
