P5S Brilliant Dragonslayer Battle.png

Brilliant Dragonslayer is a rather quick fighter. You must avoid, as much as possible, trying to fight it while on foot. Use Phantom Dash from the many points available around the environment to deal damage.

Persona Use

Due to how fast it can strike, you must try and break its shield buffs as quickly as possible to stagger it. Alternate between Makoto and Morgana for Nuclear and Wind attacks respectively. Equip Joker with skills based on either affinity to add depth.
