Prioritize characters with high ATK stats. You may swap out Sophia for another fighter, but you'll need the health skills she brings.

Throbbing King of Desire Battle Guide

P5S Throbbing King of Desire Battle.png

This is a very tough battle, even on the easiest settings, so be sure to stock up on HP and SP Recovery items. Bring along a fighter or a tank to be beside Haru and your healer, as they should be the ones receiving the brunt of damage the enemy deals.

Persona Use

Alternate between Haru and Joker for Psy attacks. Make sure to use Sophia's SP for nothing else but healing, as the damage output of this enemy is greater than all the other Powerful Shadows apart from the later ones you'll encounter. Make full use of the obstacles in the arena to land critical hits, and use Showtime when it's available.
