Shin Megami Tensei V: How to defeat Boss Black Rider - 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 Dark Rider.


Dark Rider uses Soul Call at the start of combat to summon two level 50 Legions, and will summon them again as soon as you kill one. As with all other fights against the Cavaliers, it is still interesting to try to kill one per turn for the same reasons: on the one hand, it reduces the number of base turns at the start of the enemy's turn. and, most importantly, it forces Black Rider to waste a turn to use Soul Call and summon them again.

Black Rider is weak to Wind , and Legions are weak to electricity and light . Thus, Domination and Yurlungur demons will be able to quickly eliminate the Legions thanks to Ziodyne , a spell to which they both have access. In support, take the demon you want as long as it is not weak to the ice, even block the ice if possible.


Besides Frozen Blast , which Black Rider will also use after concentrating Magatsuhi, his other particularly destructive attacks are Megidoloan and Soul Divide , two absolute attacks respectively Powerful and Very Powerful, which affect the entire team. It is important to accumulate at least two Matarunda ranks to be able to reduce the damage of these attacks to the maximum because you will not be able to counter these attacks with affinities. Use Matarunda first, then Marakukaja only second because Dark Rider can use Dekaja to remove your buffs.


Matarunda is all the more important as the Legions can use Matarukaja to buff his attack, which will quickly end badly if you let them. Finally, take advantage of the low accuracy of Soul Division to lower its accuracy even more with Masukunda and avoid as much as possible this attack which can seal your spells.
