Nekomata will utilize vicious Phys skills, so it is advisable to have demons that have a considerable amount of HP to refrain from wasting turns on healing up.

Nekomata also absorbs Force, so refrain from using Force elemental attacks on her so as not to waste your turn.

How to Beat Nekomata

Nekomata pre-fight scene

Nekomata will gain the upper-hand in the battle, so make a sound decision between healing up who got hit in your party first or attack first then hope for another turn after exploiting her Elec weakness.

If you can't hit consecutive Elec attacks, we suggest alternating between other high damage attacks and then follow up with an Elec attack to get another turn.

Target Its Weakness

Since Nekomata is weak to Elec attacks, use Elec elemental skills and just barrage her with it. Alternating between other attacks and then following up with an Elec attack to get another turn, is another option if you can't perform consecutive Elec attacks.

Secure An Extra Turn to Heal at the Beginning

Nekomata will be able to damage one ally in the party upon engagement. We recommend securing at least one extra turn at the beginning of the battle by landing a Crit. shot or targeting her weakness, for healing up in order to maximize all the turns you'll get attacking Nekomata.

Don't Use Force Skills

Nekomata will just absorb Force attacks so don't even think about using them! Bringing demons that rely on Force skills is highly discouraged.

Use Anti-Phys Debuffs or Buffs that Increase Evasion Rate

Passive skills that impart resistance to Physical attacks or ones that increase your party's evasion rate can protect you and your party from the Physical attacks Nekomata dishes out.
