Persona 3 Portable is the reinvention of the Persona 3 made for a modern Platform. The game was released on January 19th for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC and is also available on the Xbox Game pass and Microsoft Store.
Persona 3 Portable is a toned-down version of Persona 3 as it only has 3 social stats to max and the character will not act the whole scene. But one thing is common with Persona 3 and that’s the difficulty of the bosses. Reaper is one of the bosses in Persona 3 Portable that can kill the player in a single attack if not enough level or prepared. In this guide, you will know how to encounter and defeat the reaper in Persona 3 Portable.
How to Defeat Reaper in Persona 3 Portable?
Firstly, in order to get the reaper boss on the Tartarus or Monad Depths, players need to do any one of these things in the game:
- Players can stand still and wait for around 10-12 mins in the level to spawn the reaper, players will get the dialogue from Mitsuru or Fuuka that the reaper has spawned.
- After completing the battle, the player can get Shuffle time, where they need to select cards, If the player was unlucky and picked the card with Skull and Crossbones reaper will appear in that level on the Tartarus.
By doing one of the 2 things mentioned above, players can spawn The Reaper. The reaper will automatically come to you after getting spawned so players don’t need to find it.
Note: It is recommended that players should be high enough level before fighting Reaper as it can defeat you in a single attack (if the player is low level). The recommended level is above 65.
After spawning the Reaper boss, players can fight it in two ways:
1. Normal fight
As mentioned above, players need to be above level 65 (recommended level to fight reaper) to have a good chance of defeating it.
So what Persona to use against him? It is recommended that the player use Persona like Odin which has a good attack like Ragnarok or Thunder Reign. Odin can also boost the attack power of Ragnarok and thunder Reign by keeping the Electro Amps and Electro boost up as much as possible.
Players can also use their other party members to decrease the defence of the reaper and try to knock him down.
After knocking him down, players can launch an all-out attack on the reaper to deal a good amount of Damage but players need to make sure that they don’t use 2 all-out attacks in a row as the boss will instantly kill them.
Repeat the process of attacking the reaper with thunder reigns with Odin or any other character and other party members focus on lowering its def and attack. The reaper has an HP of 9999 life points so the fight can be a little long.
The points to remember before and during the fight with Reaper:
- Players need to be high enough level to have a chance of winning against it.
- Players should have Persona which has Thunder Reign or Ragnarok attack (preferred Odin).
- Other party members should have skills to lower the defence of the boss
- Don’t ever use 2 all-out attacks in a row on Reaper (it will instantly kill you).
- The Reaper has 9999 Life points.
2. Use the Armageddon Fusion Spell
There is a spell called Armageddon Fusion which can deal 9999 damage to the enemies when used during the fight. The reaper has 9999 Life Points so this spell will one-shot the boss.
The spell is easy to use, all a player need to do is go to the items box when the boss fight starts and select the Armageddon Fusion spell, the fight will instantly be over as the spell one-shot the boss.
It is easy to use the spell but it is not easy and cost-effective to get the spell. The player can buy the spell from the Shinshoudo antique shop in Paulownia Mall. The material required to exchange for the spells is x99 Malachite and x10 Ruby. This is where the difficulty starts, players can find both the material in Tartarus. The problem is that Ruby is very difficult to farm as they are very rare.
There is another way to get the spell and that is by receiving it from the Handed Man door inside Paradigm door. As you fight the fight monster inside, players need to let-handed man spawn a Maya and cause an explosion and after that finish the fight and get the spell.
That’s how a player can defeat the Reaper in Persona 3 Portable. It is recommended that the player should be high enough level before starting the boss fight.
