Shin Megami Tensei V: How to defeat Boss Matador - Game guide


In the DLC "Return of the True Demon", you will have the opportunity to face the nine Cursed as well as a last boss who will surely be very happy to the regulars of the series. Similar to Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne, the Cursed appear in certain places and you will have to face them to advance to the next Cursed. So here is a detailed guide on how to beat Matador.


To prepare well for this fight, it is important to come up with a few key elements. As a first step, it is essential to come with at least 1 demon (if possible 2) knowing Sukunda .

Sukunda is simply essential (unless you are much more advanced in the game and already have access to Dekaja) to be able to counter Matador Red Cloak's unique ability , which allows him to find himself directly at +2 in Agility, even if it was debuffed before. Matador will always start the fight, use it with a Red Capote , and will reuse it a second time around the middle of the fight. It is essential to remove his bonuses in Agility because Matador has a very good base Agility stat, so he will become more or less untouchable with the buffs.


Second very important point for this fight, it is necessary to come with resistance to the wind, with at least one demon and if possible the Nahobino which blocks Mazan . Matador will still use Mazan after concentrating Magatsuhi so come with Shock Suppressors as well . For offense, Shiisaa naturally learns Zionga +3, and is wind resistant, making her a very relevant demon for this fight, as long as you're willing to sacrifice a few grimoires to level her up.


Finally, Matador has a fairly destructive combo which is Charge + Andalucia , his second signature attack. If, in addition, he has used Marakunda just before, it can become very dangerous. The easiest way to get out of this awkward situation is to simply use a Physics Remover . You can get 1 by doing the Aspiring Gang Leader side quest .


Kikuri-Hime is a very good demon for this fight since she blocks the wind, and has +3 healing potential , which makes her the perfect support. Add Media with Leanan Sidhe Essence if necessary. For offense, Shiisaa naturally learns Zionga +3 , and is wind resistant, making her a very relevant demon for this fight, as long as you're willing to sacrifice a few grimoires to level her up.
