Attack Patterns

Invisibility

Scarlet Nexus - Kagero Donne Invisibility

Kagero will have access to his SAS, Invisibility during the fight. Clairvoyance will be unavailable in this fight as this is a solo fight, however you can a see a faint outline of him on the screen. Pay attention to that.

Knife Throw

Scarlet Nexus - Kagero Donne Knife Throw

Kagero is adept at wielding throwing knives. When he performs melee attacks, expect that the final attack of the chain will be a backlip into knife throw.

Note: Any kind of knife throw done by Kagero will interrupt player actions. This includes interrupting normal and psychokinetic attacks.

Knife Throw AoE

Scarlet Nexus - Kagero Donne Knife Throw AoE

Kagero will also use a Knife Throw AoE. This is signalled by him kneeling down and charging up the attack. When charged, Kagero will jump up and throw a fan of knives at the player.

Brain Drive

Scarlet Nexus - Kagero Donne Brain Drive

Kagero will have access to Brain Drive after you deplete his health by a certain amount. He will be more powerful in this state, and you will not be able to disrupt his Invisibility as easily as before.

Use your Psychokinesis to weaken him and execute Perfect Dodges to get precious invulnerability frames when Kagero enters this state.

Brain Drive Knife Throw

Scarlet Nexus - Kagero Donne Brain Drive Knife Throw

When Kagero enters Brain Drive, his normal Knife Throw will be upgraded to a fan of knives. It has more projectiles and deals more damage.

While it is easy to dodge this attack by jumping up, it isn't as telegraphed as his normal knife throw. Be wary of it when you play with low health.

Weaknesses

Kagero Donne Weaknesses

Kagero does not have any particular weakness in this fight, since you only have access to Psychokinesis. However, you can use your Psychokinetic Follow-Up Attacks to break his shell.

Note: When he kneels down to channel his Knife Throw AoE, you can hit his kneeling form even if he is Invisible. This will disrupt his attack and open him up to damage.

How to Beat Kagero

Tips & Strategies

Use Psychokinetic Attacks When He Reveals Himself

Use Psychokinesis

Weaken him using your psychokinetic abilities while his SAS is on cooldown. Break his shell using Psychokinesis and go in for the kill as quick as possible.

Use Perfect Dodge Attacks

Use Perfect Dodge Attacks

Since most of Kagero's moves are telegraphed, use Perfect Dodges to create openings for dealing damage. We recommend learning Perfect Dodge Attack to maximize your damage without the help of SAS.

Perfect Dodge Attack Skill Overview

Execute Brain Crush By Breaking His Shell

Execute Brain Crush

You will break Kagero's shell more efficiently using multiple Psychokinetic Follow-Up Attacks. Use Brain Crush when his Crush Gauge is depleted.

Keep Mobile to Dodge His Throwing Knife Attacks

Keep Mobile During Throwing Knife Attacks

Kagero is adept at wielding throwing knives. Move or dodge to the side when he throws one knife. When he uses multiple knives, dodge forward to avoid them.

Pay Attention to His Faint Outline

Clairvoyance will be unavailable in this fight as this is a solo fight, however you can a see a faint outline of Kagero on the screen. Pay attention to that to determine where he is.

Caution: This fight will be tricky since you cannot lock on to Kagero when he is invisible. The camera will be all over the place so make sure not to spam your attacks needlessly.

Attack Kagero when He Kneels

Attack Kagero when He Kneels

Every now and then, Kagero will kneel to perform a charge animation for his throwing knives. This is indicated by a large halo of light that engulfs him when he kneels.

Take advantage of this and hit him when he begins to charge. This will disrupt his attack and stun him in the process.
