Best Characters for Party

yusuke.pngYusuke makoto.pngMakoto anne.pngAnn

Joker, Ann, and Yusuke will be your primary skill casters for this fight, allowing you to keep Makoto's SP in reserve for when healing becomes a need, as she can provide good damage with her melee attacks due to her being able to get Nuclear Affinity alongside Ann's Fire Affinity whip attacks.

P5S Sun

You will need to watch out for its Area of Effect attacks and defend yourself by jumping over them, as these cause great damage to you.Use Makoto to tank hits, and melee it while having Nuclear Affinity for more damage.

Persona Use

You'll need to properly time the use of skills while you fight this Dire Shadow, which allows you to do away with shields close to failing so that you can stun it for more hits. Rotate the skill usage between Joker, Ann/Makoto, and Yusuke while you leave either Ann or Makoto last so that she may be able to produce Affinity based melee hits afterwards.
