Equip Water Pins

NEO TWEWY Minamimoto Water

Pin Affinity Guide

Equip Spectral Swords Pin

Pins with the Spectral Swords Psych similarly follow the target around, so they're also greatly useful against the Leo Cantus Armo, who zips around a lot. ShiDare Shade is a powerful Spectral Swords Pin that you should equip for this battle.

Light & Sound Pins Also Useful

Most Light Pins have the HP Vampire ability, which allows you to regain health as you deal damage. Most Sound Pins have the Groove Boost ability, which allows you to build up Groove faster and thus perform Killer Remixes on the boss.

Build up Groove When Not Armored

The Leo Cantus Armo has relatively weak attacks when it doesn't have armor on, so this is when you go on your full offensive. Try to build up Groove as well using Spectral Swords Pins, Sound Pins, and Rapid-tap pins. Don't perform a Killer Remix when it's unarmored, as most of the hits won't affect it.

Perform Killer Remix When Armored

When the Leo Cantus Armo has armor on, play more defensively, as carelessness here can cost the battle. If you have a Killer Remix at this point, use it to destroy the armor faster, while still dealing great damage to his HP. You also regain a significant amount of HP after performing a Killer Remix.

Dodge After Fire Pillar

When the Leo Cantus Armo raises a fire pillar, you may keep attacking, but note that he leaps at you immediately after the fire pillar subsides.

He almost bodied me. Beat him right before he hit me at 10 HP. Best boss fight so far in my opinion.
