Best Characters for Party

Having Makoto tag along for this fight frees up Ryuji to freely cast Elec based skill attacks against the horseman. Joker with Curse based skills covers its third weakness, while Sophia can bring the team some breathing room with Bless based skills along with healing.

Difficult, but not impossible. You'll need to be very vigilant of what kind of attack the War-Hungry Horseman will do – there are two main ones to be really worried about, and these are when it summons a cyclone to hit everything around, and an earth shattering attack that spreads out. Be careful of these primary ones.

Persona Use

With Makoto on the team, Ryuji is freed up to cast Elec based skills against the horseman. Do so liberally, switching now and then to Joker or Sophia for Curse or Bless attacks respectively. Be careful to save a little bit of Sophia's SP for moments where she'd need to heal the party however, or simply leave this task to Makoto instead.
