Dodge the attacks
Dodging his attacks by any means necessary should be your first priority during the Nightmare Dragon Ango Boss fight.
Use buffs and debuffs
Party members can use attack power, defense power, critical evasion buffs followed up by debuffs.
You can only access these buffs through Joker and Fox Personas. There is another special buff, Heat Riser, that can be accessed by Joker and is to be used in one buff.
You can increase the amount of damage you inflict on your enemies through Charge and Concentrate buffs.
Use Showtime Attacks
Showtime attacks can be very effective against the Boss. Fill up your showtime gauge and attack the Boss with the Showtime attack.
Showtime gauge can also be built up using a consumable item.
Dodge special attacks
Make sure to avoid the special attacks of the Boss like Judgement Hail and Outrage Blade.
In case of Judgement Hail, when the Boss goes up in the air for the ice attack, jump and move away to dodge the attack.
In Outrage Blade, you can avoid the tail sweep by jumping at the right moment.
Maragion is a fire attack of Ango that needs to be dodged if you don’t want to get burn.
Use Status Ailments
Inflict a status ailment to the Boss, followed by technical damage by physical and gun attacks.
Cure Status Ailments
Use Status Recovery Items or Amrita drop to cure the status ailments
Use Ice Crystals
Stun Damage Ango using the Ice Crystals and then attack him with everything you have got in your arsenal.
Use Ice cubes to freeze Ango
Once it gets activated and gets covered in flames, you have to break the buff as soon as he gets on the ground.
Get him near the Ice cube and cause an explosion by denoting the cubes.
He will become frozen and you will be able to inflict a huge amount of damage to him.
Use Holy Magic
Use Yusuke or Sophia’s Holy Magic as he is weak against Holy Magic.
Use Phantom Dash
Phantom Dash can be used if you see him floating in the air with a blue orb above his head.
Use Terrain Gimmicks
Once you see the Terrain Gimmicks, transfer on them, and start using the Phantom Dash.
Pillar is the first terrain gimmick that can be used from a higher spot to inflict damage.

Ice Shards are the third Terrain gimmick used to unload Ice shards on Ango.
Use Ice And Bless Attacks
Inflicting Ice and Bless attacks through Fox’s Goemon and Sophie’s Pithos can help you a great deal in this boss fight.
Choose the range of weapons wisely
