List of Contents
To fight Daisojou, you must have played the Maniax or Chronicles Version of the game. They're DLC content that adds new characters, several optional bosses, and a new dungeon required for a certain ending!
|Recommended Magatama||Kamudo Magatama|
|Recommended Level||23 or Higher|
Players can encounter Daisoujou after speaking to Gozu-Tennoh for the first time. Daisoujou can be found in the eastern side of Ikebukuro, past the large room with Manikins.
He will abduct the players in the hallway before reaching the escalators, marking the beginning of the boss battle.
|None, but Phys attacks can go a long way.|
Daisoujou has no Elemental Weakness, however, utilizing Phys Attacks and Magic Attacks except for Light, Death, Curse, Mind, and Nerve are effective in inflicting damage on Daisoujou.
|Attacks||Light Instakill, Dark Instakill, Mind, Almighty|
|Absorb||Curse and Mind|
|Reflect||Light and Death|
Daisoujou will utilize Light, Dark, Mind, and Almighty attacks. All of its instakill attacks target all foes and its Almighty attack called Meditation is a single-target attack that will drain a medium amount of your HP and MP.
Likewise, Daisoujou can Absorb Curse and Mind attacks, Reflect Light and Death skills, and Void Nerve.
|Best Demons to Use|
This should take top priority as Daisoujou can hit you with an instakill out of nowhere. Use a skill like Rakukaja to raise your party's defense and Sukukaja to raise your party's evasion rate and protect yourself from Daisoujou's lethal attacks.
Use a buff like Makakaja before using a Magic skill. This allows you to maximize your Magic Attack's damage output in the short turns you get.
Use Rakunda to lower Daisoujou's defense, to make it more vulnerable to your attacks. Alternatively, you can use Fog Breath or Sukunda as these debuffs will decrease its chance of dodging your attacks.
Daisoujou will use its Almighty attack Meditation frequently, and this cannot be easily countered. We recommend using a buff like Sukukaja to raise your party's evasion rate and increase the chance of dodging this attack.
Kamudo Magatama will boost Strength, which will increase your Phys Attack’s damage output, and it will also boost Vitality which will increase your HP, helping you stay longer in this fight.
Daishoujou has no resistance against Phys Attacks, so don't hesitate to use these types of attacks on it.
Daisoujou has resistance against Light, Dark, Curse, Mind, and Nerve attacks, but be comfortable using other elemental Magic attacks as Daisoujou cannot block or counter these.
Daisoujou relies on Light and Dark skills, so it is highly advisable to bring along demons that can Block Light and/or Dark attacks.
You'll be able to cut off Daisoujou's turns if you block its attacks.
Daisoujou will use both multi-target Light and Dark attacks, and a single-target Almighty attack, so don't summon demons that are weak to these as you'll just be giving Daisoujou the chance to make your party vulnerable.
