We recommend using characters who can use ranged elemental attacks. Ganyu is an excellent option as her Charged Attacks can deal tons of single target DMG from a distance.

Nahida can easily attack the obstacles that provide Energy Blocks while Bennett and Zhongli can protect you from taking huge hits.

How to Defeat Scaramouche

Charge Up the Neo Akasha Terminal using Energy Blocks

Genshin - Shouki no Kami Energy Blocks

To defeat Scaramouche, you must collect Energy Blocks generated from his attacks to charge up the Neo Akasha Terminal.

The Neo Akasha Terminal is a device used during battle to immobilize or deal DMG to Shouki no Kami.

Use the Elemental Matrix on the First Phase

Genshin Impact - Elemental Matrices
During the first phase, there will be circular pads on the floor you can step on called Elemental Matrices. Fully charge the Neo Akasha Terminal and use it on the pads to generate the following effects:

Element Effect
Pyro Image Pyro Clears the Raw Frost effect from the ground.
Cryo Image Cryo Clears the Remnant Flame effect from the ground.
Anemo Image Anemo Creates a wind current you can use to avoid Scaramouche's large scale attacks.
Hydro Image Hydro Creates a continous healing effect.
Electro Image Electro Immobilizes Shouki no Kami. You will have to activate two of them in order for it to work.

Deplete the Shield on the Second Phase

Using a fully charged Neo Akasha Terminal during the second phase will replace your Elemental Skill with a powerful attack that can deal a huge chunk of DMG.

Hold the Skill and aim it on the enemy to unleash a green blast.

Destroy the Nirvana Engines using Elemental Attacks

Genshin - Shouki no Kami Nirvana Engine

When Scaramouche's shield in the second phase has been destroyed, attack the Nirvana Engines using Pyro, Cryo, and Dendro to charge up the Akasha Terminal. Once charged up, use it to unleash a blast that can immobilize Shouki no Kami.

Failure to do so will have one of your party members killed by the Setsuna Shoumetsu attack.
