Shadow Kamoshida (Asmodeus) Boss Battle (4/22)

Persona 5 / Persona 5 Royal - P5R Kamoshida Palace Overview and Infiltration Guide – SAMURAI GAMERS (30)

For a detailed breakdown of stats, skills, and battle strategies against Shadow Kamoshida, read our boss guide:

Shadow Kamoshida Boss Guide

Quick Strategy

Focus all your attacks on Shadow Kamoshida first. After he drinks from his trophy to heal, unload on the Trophy of Obsession to prevent him from healing again. Try to conserve your SP to heal yourself, especially after Asmodeus’ Volleyball Assault.

After destroying the trophy, watch out for when he summons Mishima as he will perform Gold Medal Spike that hits the entire party for massive damage. Have your party guard against the attack to increase chances of survival.

After Shadow Kamoshida performs Gold Medal Spike once, Mishima will leave. Asmodeus will then summon Shiho to assist him in the powerful attack. Have the party unload on her before she assists Shadow Kamoshida’ Gold Medal Spike again.

Have Ryuji or Morgana steal the Shadow Kamoshida’s crown while distracting him without continuous attacks. Once the crown is removed, focus on dealing heavy damage to the boss.
