Strengths and Weaknesses


None, but Phys and Magic attacks can go a long way

Mitra does not have any elemental weakness, however, using Phys and Magic attacks is useful for dealing damage.


Attacks Dark, Light, Almighty
Void Light, Dark, Ailments
Support Debilitate, Dragon Eye

Mitra utilizes both single-target and multi-target Light and Dark skills, and a multi-target Almighty attack. We recommend summoning demons that can block Light and Dark, and using Tetraja,Tetraja Rocks, or Makarakarn.

Mitra voids Light, Dark, and Ailments, so never use these types of attacks as you'll only be wasting your turn. It also has two Support skills including Debilitate, and Dragon Eye which grants Mitra four extra turns.

How to Beat Mitra

Use Tetraja or Tetraja Rocks

tetraja rock

A good alternative to Makarakarn or Magic Mirror is a Tetraja Rock or Tetraja which can protect your entire party from Light/Dark Attacks.

Use a Magic Mirror or Makarakarn


Mitra uses both Light and Dark attacks, so we highly recommend using a Magic Mirror or activating Makarakarn to Repel all foes' Magic attacks to cut off their turns.

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

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.

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.

Best Buff and Debuff Skills

Debuff Mitra

Use Tarunda, Debilitate, or War Cry to lower enemies' Phys/Magic Attacks. You will take less damage if you debuff their attacks. Use Rakunda to lower their defense, to make them more vulnerable to your attacks.

Alternatively, you can use Fog Breath or Sukunda as these debuffs will decrease their chance of dodging your attacks.

Have At Least One Dedicated Healer in Your Party

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.
