Let’s take a look at how to deal with each attack.
Maintain a distance from the Boss as he shoots five Heavy Fire attacks, simply dash till the attacks hit the ground. You can also use Joker (Fire-type Persona) or Panther to resist damage.
Maintain a distance from the Boss as he performs Ice attacks. Simply use Joker (Ice-type Persona) or Fox to resist damage.
The Boss performs Heavy Electric attacks. Simply move aside of the target area. You can also use Joker (Elec-type Persona) or Skull to resist damage.
The Boss performs Three Heavy Wind attacks. Simply move away from the front of the Boss. You can also use Joker (Wind- type Persona) or Mona to resist damage.

The Boss performs Curse attacks. Simply move to a far location. You can also use Joker (Curse-type Persona) to resist damage.
The Boss performs Almighty attacks. Simply move away once you see the Almighty prompt. You must heal your entire party since this attack has a wide range.
