Equip Pin That Doesn't Need to Lock On

The Houseleon is often camouflaged, making you unable to lock on to it, so have a Pin that doesn't need to lock on to a target in order to attack. Otherwise, you'll waste time with moments wherein you don't have any attack options. A great Pin to use for this is Watch Your Step, as you just move the control stick around and it can stun the Houseleon and other enemies.

Equip Fire and Wind Pins

The Houseleon has an Affinity weakness to Fire and Wind Pins, so equip pins of those affinity. Soul Ablaze and Gust of Gorgeous are two Pins that fit those types and they both allow you to keep a distance from the Houseleon, in order to avoid its shockwave defense mechanism.

Tips & Strategies for Beating Houseleon (Boss)

Strategy Checklist
CheckmarkDefeat the other Noise first

CheckmarkAttack the Houseleon when it locks on to you

CheckmarkAvoid staying near the Houseleon for long periods

Defeat Other Noise First

Focusing only on the Houseleon is difficult since it only shows itself once in a while. It's recommended to erase the other Noise from the battle first, so that they don't attack you or mess with your targeting when the Houseleon does show itself.

Attack Houseleon When it Aims at You

You can only lock on to the Houseleon when it reveals itself to lock on to you. Circles resembling a reticle appears around your character when the Houseleon is targeting you. When the circles appear, immediately look for the Houseleon (its eyes will be the first body part visible) and move to attack/immobilize it.

Avoid Staying Near Houseleon
