Where to Find Fuu-Ki

Fuu-Ki Location

Fuu-Ki can be found in the top-left corner of B2 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.

Strengths and Weaknesses



Fuu-Ki is weak towards Elec, we highly recommend exploiting its weakness to inflict damage and secure extra turns for your party.


Attacks Force, Phys
Absorb Force
Void Light, Dark, Ailments
Resist Phys
Support Makakaja, Beast Eye

Fuu-Ki will mainly use both single-target and multi-taget Force Attacks, and Phys Attacks, so we recommend bringing along demons that can block this type of attack.

Likewise, Fuu-Ki can Void Light, Dark, and Ailment skills, Resist Phys, and Absorb Force, so don't use these types of attacks as you will only be wasting your turn.

Fuu-Ki has two Support skills including Makakaja which buffs its Magic damage, and Beast Eye that grants Fuu-Ki four extra turns.

How to Beat Fuu-Ki

Use a Magic Mirror or Makarakarn to Repel Fuu-Ki's Force Attacks

Fuu-Ki utilizes Force, and in the event you or your demons cannot block Force, we highly recommend using a Magic Mirror or activating Makarakarn to repel Fuu-Ki's Force attacks to cut off its turns and, at the same time, reflecting the damage onto it.

You may obtain a Magic Mirror in Rag's Jewelry.

No Resistance Against Magic Attacks Except for Force, Light, Dark, and Ailments


Fuu-Ki Absorbs Force, and Voids Light, Dark, and Ailments. However, be comfortable using other elemental Magic attacks, especially Elec, as Fuu-Ki cannot block or counter these.

Refrain From Resorting to Phys Attacks

Fuu-Ki is highly resistant to Phys attacks, so we suggesting keeping the use of Phys attacks to a minimum.

Buff Your Attacks


Use a buff like Focus or Tarukaja before using a Phys attack. This allows you to maximize your Phys Attack's damage output in the short turns you get.

Have At Least One Dedicated Healer in Your Party

Summon demons that have Dia or Media so your party can restore HP as you move along the battle. This will be ideal especially in situations wherein you have no available Recovery items on hand.
