Best Characters for Party

You can swap out Zenkichi for another Fighter like Ryuji or Haru. The others however are a must due to their Persona skill attacks being based around the Ice Affinity, and because they have healing skills necessary for this fight.

While not powerful, the Guard Dog of Hades does have attacks that can quickly halve the health of all your party members. Keep Sophia's SP in reserve for emergency heals if needed. Mainly avoid the attacks which affect the immediate area around the dog.

Persona Use

Make sure to also equip Joker with a high level Persona that has Ice Affinity skills. Swap between him and Yusuke as you fight the beast. It is a good idea however to take main control of Yusuke for the majority of the fight, so that you can use combos that summon its Persona for small Ice attacks.
