List of Contents
|Recommended Level||45 or higher|
You won't be able to change the Magatama used in the battle against Girimekhala as this fight happens immediately after defeating Girimekhala.
|None, but Phys and Magic attacks can go a long way.|
Sakahagi does not have any elemental weakness, however, using both Phys and Magic attacks is useful for dealing damage.
|Attacks||Fire, Ice, Elec, Force|
|Void||Light, Dark, Ailments|
Sakahagi utilizes multi-target Fire, Ice, Elec, and Force attacks, so we highly recommend summoning demons that can block these types of attacks. Sakahagi can void Light, Dark, and Ailment skills, so never use these types of attacks as you'll only be wasting your turn.
|Best Demons to Use|
|Kurama Tengu||Daisoujou||Hell Biker|
|White Rider||Red Rider||Troll|
Sakahagi has no resistance against Phys Attacks, so don't hesitate to use this type of attack on him.
Sakahagi has no resistance against Magic Attacks, so don't hesitate to use this type of attack on him.
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.
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 Tarunda or War Cry to lower the enemy's Phys/Magic Attacks. You will take less damage if you debuff his attacks. Use Rakunda to lower his defense, to make him more vulnerable to your attacks.
Alternatively, you can use Fog Breath or Sukunda as these debuffs will decrease his chance of dodging your attacks.
Sakahagi utilizes Magic attacks, so we highly recommend using a Magic Mirror or activating Makarakarn to Repel his Magic attacks to cut off his turns and, at the same time, reflecting the damage onto him.
You may obtain a Magic Mirror in Rag's Jewelry.
Summon demons that have Dia, Media, or the skill's other variants, 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.
