|Recommended Level||35 or higher|
Kin-Ki can be found on the left side of B4 of Ikebukuro Tunnel.
The path to his area is littered with damage-inducing floors, so make sure to bring a Float Ball or cast a Liftoma skill.
|None, but Magic attacks can go a long way.|
Kin-Ki does not have any elemental weakness, however, using Magic attacks is good for dealing damage.
|Void||Light, Dark, Ailments|
|Support||Tarukaja, Rakukaja, Tarunda, Rakunda, Dekunda, Beast Eye|
Kin-Ki will mainly use single-target and multi-taget Phys Attacks, so we recommend bringing along demons that can block this type of attack. Likewise, Kin-Ki can Void Light, Dark, and Ailment skills, so don't use these types of attacks as you will only be wasting your turn.
Kin-Ki has six Support skills including Dekunda which negates your Debuffs on it, Beast Eye that grants Kin-Ki four extra turns, Rakunda which decreases foes' defense, Tarunda which decreases foes' Attack and Magic damage output, Rakukaja which buffs its defense, and Tarukaja which buffs Kin-Ki Phys attacks.
|Best Demons to Use|
Kin-Ki utilizes Phys attacks, so we highly recommend using an Attack Mirror or activating Tetrakarn to Repel its Phys attacks and cut off its turns and, at the same time, reflecting the damage onto Kin-Ki.
You may obtain an Attack Mirror in Rag's Jewelry.
Kin-Ki has Dekunda which negates your Debuffs on it. It is fine to debuff Kin-Ki but you shouldn't overinvest or Kin-Ki will simply cancel it all out in a single turn.
You can still buff your party's attacks, however, take note that Kin-Ki has Tarunda which decreases foes' Attack and Magic damage output.
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.
Kin-Ki Voids Light, Dark, and Ailments. However, be comfortable using other elemental Magic attacks as Kin-Ki cannot block or counter these.
Kin-Ki is highly resistant to Phys attacks, so we suggest keeping the use of Phys attacks to a minimum.
