You must complete the first Kalpa and second Kalpa in the Labyrinth of Amala to trigger this boss fight.
Gehenna, Geis, or Ankh|

White Rider can be found once players reach Asakusa from the Ikebukuro Tunnel. Simply walk into Asakusa and a prompt will appear saying the Menorah is acting up.
Keep moving until you reach the area in front of the Fountain of Life door and Amala Link Door. After answering a few prompts, players will be teleported to the White Rider boss battle.
None, but Phys Attacks can go a long way.|
White Rider does not have any Elemental weakness, however using Phys attacks and Magic skills except for Fire, Light, Dark, and Ailment can inflict damage onto it.
Fire, Light, Dark, Ailments|
Dekaja, Dragon Eye, Call Angel|
White Rider utilizes a multi-target Fire attack and a single-target Light Instakill called God's Bow, we highly suggest not summoning demons that are weak towards those attack types.
Likewise, White Rider can Void Fire, Light, Dark, and Ailment skills. Never use these attacks on White RIder as you'll only be wasting your turns.
White Rider has Dekaja which removes all buffs from all foes, so don't overinvest in buffing your party as it can negate all your buffs in a single turn. White Rider also has Dragon Eye that grants White Rider four extra turns, and Call Angel which White Rider uses to summon extra Virtue demons.
Best Demons to Use|
Ignore the Virtue demons White RIder summons at the beginning of the battle, as White Rider will just summon them back even after killing the summoned demons. Take White Rider out as soon as possible as it is the main priority target.
White RIder utilizes Phys attacks, so we highly recommend using an Attack Mirror or activating Tetrakarn to Repel White Rider's Phys attacks to cut off its turns and, at the same time, reflecting the damage onto White Rider.
God's Bow is White Rider's single-target Light Instakill attack. If you cannot block Light nor have demons that can, we highly suggest always dedicating a turn to raise your party's defense or evasion rate, especially against God's Bow to avert the chances of an Instakill happening. White Rider could target anyone in your party, and if the unlucky ally does not block Light, they will surely die.
You can still buff your party's attacks, however, take note that White Rider has Dekaja which removes all buffs from all foes in a single turn.
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.
White RIder utilizes Fire and Light attacks, we highly suggest summoning demons that can block those types of attacks to cut off White Rider's turns.
Dragon Eye grants White RIder four extra turns. When it activates this, prioritize cutting off its turns by countering its attacks and then switch up your strategy accordingly.
White Rider has no resistance against Phys Attacks, so don't hesitate to use these types of attacks on it.
White RIder Voids Fire, Light, Dark, and Ailments. However, be comfortable using other elemental Magic attacks as White Rider cannot block or counter these.
