Congrats to those of you who finished "The Journey". If you thought that
was hard The Answer is even harder. Way harder. So be ready!
Anyways, I just recently finished The Journey and started the Answer
and only found one guide that has a decent walkthrough for The Answer
and that is Misfit119. And I used his/her guide to get through it
so many thanks for the guide ^^. I hope this guide will help you reach the
answer to Persona 3 =D and make it a little less hellish.
Thanks for reading!

*IMPORTANT! Read EVERYTHING before starting a boss fight or going into a new
place. This will save you a lot of time...that way you don't make any mistakes
or end up doing the wrong thing.

O=====================================================================O
|       [Missing Features]                               [0.03]       |
O=====================================================================O
The Answer is missing some things from the Journey. Here's the list.

+Social Links are gone.
+Social Stats are fixed.
+Fatigue.
+Fusion Spells.
+Compendium.
+Elizabeth's Requests.
+3,5 and 6 persona fusions.


O=====================================================================O
|       [The Beginning]                                  [0.04]       |
O=====================================================================O

The Answer starts off with a short cutsceen. After that a lot of talking
then after that, your first boss fight!


O=====================================================================O
|       [Boss: Metis]                                    [0.05]       |
O=====================================================================O

Skills: Strike Attack
Weaknesses: none
-------------------------------
Exp: 11003
-------------------------------
The easiest boss on The Answer.
Pretty much just attack her with either a normal attack or kill rush
Couple of hits should kill her. DO NOT use any items. If you get low on
HP don't worry because Metis will start to hesitate as soon as your HP
is low. She doesn't want to kill you, that's why this fight is so easy.

O=====================================================================O
|       [Malebolge]                                      [0.06]       |
O=====================================================================O

Party: Yukari, Ken, and Metis
Floors: Seven(7)
Difficulty: One(1)

Head down to the 6th floor while fighting shadows. Try to collect as many
Persona as you can because Orpheus alone isn't good enough.
try to get Fortuna and Narcissus for the boss battle coming up.
Also try to level Narcissus to 21 so it learns Sexy Dance, You'll need it.
When you get to the 6th floor SAVE! you will die a lot. No doubt. So SAVE!
The place to save looks exactly like the one in Tartarus.
After saving make sure your party is ready for a difficult boss battle

O=====================================================================O
|       [Boss: Immortal Gigas/Visceral Maya]             [0.07]       |
O=====================================================================O

Recomended Level: 25
Recomended Party: Yukari, Ken, and Metis
Recomnded Persona: Orpheus, Fortuna, and Narcissus
Number of times I died: 3
-------------------------------
Set Ken to Heal/Support
Yukari to Assign Target(Gigas)
Metis to Knock Down
-------------------------------
Immortal Gigas-
Skills: Gale Slash(party), Fatal End(1), Counter, and Dodge Wind.
Weaknesses: Wind
-------------------------------
Visceral Maya-
Skills: Cleave(1), Double Fangs(1), Counter, and Dodge Fire.
Weaknesses: Fire
-------------------------------
Now this is where the bosses get hard > -<

Make sure to scan the shadows so your party doesn't mess up and accidently
heal them instead of hurting them. Scan Maya then Gigas.
Use Agi for the Visceral Mayas and Garu for the Gigas
First focus on the Mayas if you're lucky you can hit all Mayas and knock them
down, After hitting them all you can switch off to Narcissus and use Sexy Dance
to Charm the enemies, hopefully you'll charm the Gigas and stop it from
attacking you and also charming a Maya would help. Charming them helps a lot
since they won't attack you but attack each other =D
Keep knocking down the Mayas while Yukari handles the Gigas
If the Gigas ever recovers try to charm it if you want or you could just
knock down the maya and attack the gigas to speed up the process
If all goes well you should have this fight covered. =D
IF you get lucky this should be the turn order
You>Maya>Maya>Metis>Junpei>Yukari
If you don't get lucky then just keep knocking down the Mayas and have your
party focus on a single beast that way they only make one stand up and leave
one down.
After the fight go in the door which takes you back to the Desert of Doors.
You now have a door that takes you to the 8th floor.
Save in the Lounge.
Go back to the 8th floor via the new door.


O=====================================================================O

O=====================================================================O

Party: Yukari, Ken, and Metis.
Floors: Seven(7)
Difficulty: Two(2)

Take your rewards and head down to the 9th floor.
Again try to collect as many Persona as possible.
As you reach the end. Open the huge door for a cutsceen.
You now have access to Paulownia Mall! =D
-------------------------------
Although you might be too poor to afford most of the weapons
you can still buy Medical Powders and such which you will need.
Selling the Steel Right Arm you got from the Gigas will get you
50,000Yen.  After buying everything you need exit via the huge door.
SAVE SAVE SAVE SAVE! After saving go back to the Desert of Doors and enter
the new door.

O=====================================================================O
|       [Cocytus]                                        [0.09]       |
O=====================================================================O

Party: Yukari, Junpei, and Metis.
Floors: Nine(9)
Difficulty: Four(4)

Again try to collect as many Persona here as you can especially
Take-Mikazuchi! That way you should have at least every elemental
skill.
Make your way down to the 8th floor for another save point. Same as last time.
make sure your party is healed. SAVE SAVE SAVE SAVE SAVE!
Once you are ready, jump down to the 9th floor.

O=====================================================================O
|       [Boss: Brilliant Cyclops/Soul Dancer]            [0.10]       |
O=====================================================================O

Recomnded Level: 30
Recomended Party: Junpei, Yukari, and Metis
Recomnded Persona: Narcissus, and Fortuna
Number of times I died: 8
-------------------------------
Exp: 5031
Item: Broken Wheel x1, Homonculus x2, Bead Chain x2.
-------------------------------
Set Yukari to Heal/Support
Set Junpei to Assign Target(Cyclops)
Set Metis to Assign Target(Cyclops) when summoned.
-------------------------------
Bright Cyclops-
Skills: Slash Attack(1), Bufula(1), Mabufula(party), and Bufudyne(1),
Kill Rush(1), and Summon(Soul Dancer)
Weaknesses: None
Drains: Wind? I think...
-------------------------------
Soul Dancer x2-
Skills: Agidyne(1), and Diarama(1).
Weaknesses: Ice
-------------------------------
Big Shadow!

Start off with Narcissus since she has a strong resistance against ice.
use a normal attack on the cyclops so you dont waste HP or SP.
When a soul Dancer is summoned switch to Fortuna and knock it down
with Bufu and pray that it doesn't miss, if it does there's a chance
that it'll atack you with Agidyne which means game over > -<
Once you knock down the Soul Dancers you can attack the cyclops with
a normal attack to help speed up the process.
*IMPORTANT: KNOCK DOWN THE SOUL DANCERS BEFORE DOING ANYTHING ELSE
Any -Dyne attack will kill you so one hit from those and bye bye~.
One thing I found helpful is this little switch~
Use Bufu with Fortuna on both Soul Dancer then switch to Narcissus.
After switching attack the cyclops or do anything else that you need to do.
When its your turn again switch back to Fortuna and repeat...ofcourse you can
only do this once every two moves but its a little helpful don't ya think? ^^,
-------------------------------
If all goes well the Cyclops will be down and all that is left
are the Soul Dancers. Assign Junpei and Metis to attack the weakest of the
two Soul Dancers and knock them down with bufu, once they are down DO NOT
use an All-Out-Attack, instead heal your party or something, just don't make
them stand up again.
IF you get lucky this will be the order of attacks
You>Soul>Soul>Metis>Junpei>Yukari
If that's so then use bufu on them, once they are down call off the
All-Out-Attack and let Junpei and Metis finish them off for a nice and easy
win =D
If you don't get lucky then just keep knocking down the mayas and have your
party focus on a single beast that way they only make one stand up and leave
one down.
After the fight collect your rewards and go in the door.
Go back to the Lounge and SAVE SAVE SAVE SAVE SAVE!

O=====================================================================O
|       [Cocytus(2)]                                     [0.11]       |
O=====================================================================O

Party: Yukari, Junpei, and Metis
Floors: Four(4)
Difficulty: Five(5)

Go back into Cocytus via the second door.
Avoid the hard monsters and go for the weak ones, if you get into a fight
you know you can't win escape as fast as you can. You should be able to
find some weak spawns around there that give decent EXP with some wands.
Make your way to the 15th floor for yet another huge door. Where will
this one lead to? =o Go open the door and find out!
After the cutsceen save again~ You now have Mitsuru as a team mate as well =D

O=====================================================================O
|       [Training Time!]                                 [0.12]       |
O=====================================================================O

Now would be a good time to fuse some Persona...here's a nice combo that I
Made: Titan+Empusa+Rakshasa=Yatagarasu which has Diarama and Garula.
Pretty good shadow if ya ask me especially for some persona we dont even use.
You WILL use this persona later in battle so I suggest you make it.
-------------------------------
Party: Yukari, Junpei, and Akihiko

Time to level up!
Good places to level would be...
The first floors of Cocytus and the first floor of Malebolge
Keep fighting weak spawns until everyone reaches level 35...It takes a while
but it'll help a lot for the next up coming fights

Here's a list of Persona you want to level:
Orpheus: At 26 he learns Agilo which would help out a lot
Hua Po: At 25 so she learns all of her skills
Take-Mikazuchi: At 25 it learns Zionga which means you have 3 mid-level
attacks now! all you need is ice.

After all that fighting and leveling up here's what you should end up with

Yukari- level 35
Junpei- level 35
Akihiko- around 33-35
-------------------------------
Orpheus- level 26 atleast so it learns Agilao
Narcissus- lvl 23 atleast so it knows all of the skills
Fortuna- lvl 24 atleast so it knows all of the skills
Hua Po- lvl 25 atleast so it knows all of the skills
Take-Mikazuchi- lvl 25 at least so it learns Zionga

and if you got any others try and get them to learn all of their skills
as well, the more the better =D
Now you can level up more than 35 if you want~ 35 is just the minimum.
Also...if you got lucky enough to get a High Pixie getting that to level
25 will grant you trafuri and Bufula which means you have all mid-level
elemental attacks! You can get a High Pixie from getting Double Up! in Cocytus
that's where I got it atleast...

O=====================================================================O
|       [Caina]                                          [0.13]       |
O=====================================================================O

Party: Yukaru, Junpei, and Mitsuru
Floors: six(6)
Difficulty: Four(4)

This place isn't as hard as the others...just watch out for the red glowing
shadows and you should be okay.
Make your way down to the 6th floor and SAVE SAVE SAVE SAVE SAVE!
Make sure your party has full HP and full SP. If they're missing
a lot of SP go back to the desert of doors and run the whole thing again
without getting into fights ^^.
After you're ready jump down to the 7th floor for yet another boss fight...

O=====================================================================O
|       [Boss: Death Castle/El Dorado Beast]             [0.14]       |
O=====================================================================O

Recomended level: 35
Party: Yukari, Junpei, Mitsuru
Recomended Persona: High Pixie/Fortuna, and Yatagarasu
Number of times I died: NONE <---- Super lucky.
-------------------------------
EXP: 6553
Item: Shining Beard x2, Magic Mirror x2, Bead Chain x2
-------------------------------
Set Yukari to Heal/Support
Junpei to Assign Target(Castle)
Mitsuru to Assign Target(Castle)
-------------------------------
Death Castle:
Skills: Fire Break(1), Mazionga(party), and Mediarama(all foes)
Weaknesses: None
Drains: Ice
-------------------------------
El Dorado Beast x2:
Skills: Strike Attack(1), Swift Strike(party), Kill Rush(1), and Dodge Ice
Weaknesses: Ice
-------------------------------
Man what a tough looking fight huh?
The castle heals, so the first thing you wanna do is get rid of it while
knocking down the beasts with bufu skills
While they're taking care of the castle you use bufu on the El Dorado Beasts
DO NOT USE MABUFU OR MABUFULA, that will just end up healing the castle
and you don't want that now do you?
After knocking down the Beasts use a normal attack on the castle
This is just like the last fight really ^^
After taking down the Castle its time to focus on the El Dorado Beasts
IF you get lucky once more this should be the turn count
You>Beast>Beast>Mitsuru>Junpei>Yukari
IF the order is like that then you won this fight with ease!
just knock down the beasts with bufula or bufu or mabufu, which ever you
like then call off the All-Out-Attack and wait for them to stand up,
then have the rest just attack them with all they have and they should be down
in no time!
If you don't get lucky then just keep freezing the beasts and have your party
focus on a single beast that way they only make one stand up and leave one
down.
Collect your rewards and head to Paulownia and buy Dis-Poisons and Dis-Charms,
15 of each should be more than enough :3
Return to the Lounge and SAVE SAVE SAVE SAVE SAVE!
head back to Caina via the second door.

O=====================================================================O
|       [Caina (2)]                                      [0.15]       |
O=====================================================================O

Party: Yukari, Junpei, and Mitsuru
Floors: six(6)
Difficulty: Five(5)

Make your way down to the 13th floor for another save point
SAVE SAVE SAVE SAVE SAVE! Make sure your party has SP and HP full for this
fight =D
Once you're ready jump down to the 14th floor for yet another boss fight!

O=====================================================================O
|       [Boss: Harem Dancer/Merciless Maya]              [0.16]       |
O=====================================================================O

Recomended Level: 37
Party: Yukari, Junpei, Akihiko
Recomended Persona: Fortuna/Yatagarasu, and Hua Po
Number of Times I died: 3
-------------------------------
EXP: 7585
Item: Ebon Heart, Precious Egg, Attack Mirror x2
-------------------------------
Set Junpei and Mitsuru to Assign Target(Dancer)
Set Yukari to Heal/Support
-------------------------------
Harem Dancer:
Skills: Heat Wave(party), Marin Karin(1), Poison Mist(party),
and Maragion(party)
Weaknesses: None
Null: Pierce, 
Drains: Wind, and Ice
-------------------------------
Merciless Maya x2:
Skills: Dodge Wind, Agilao(1), Virus Breath(all), and Eerie Sound(party)
Weaknesses: Wind
Null: None
-------------------------------
Another fight that is just like the rest...
For this one you can use Fortuna or Yatagarasu but Fortuna has a weakness
to fire which the shadows use every once in a while so if you get a hit from
a fire attack its game over for you...that's what Yatagarasu is better =D

Use Garu on the Maya while the others attack the dancer
This will make the fight much easier.
DO NOT USE MAGARU, the Harem will drain wind attacks so avoid using it.
If the dancer uses Marin Karin on anyone switch to Narcissus and use
Charmdi to uncharm them, or just use a Dis-Charm...which ever you like.
If anyone gets poisoned use a Dis-Poison on them.
A good thing to do in this fight is...
Use Garu with Fortuna/Yatagarasu to knock down the maya then switch to Hua Po
who Nulls Fire attacks and you should be safe from any attacks for one full
turn =D.
Once you have the Harem out of the way follow the same order from the last
fights~
Knock down the maya and call off the All-Out-Attack and let the rest of your
party handle them. You should have this fight covered as soon as the Harem is
down ^^,
I got pretty lucky on this one because Junpei did a critical chain on the
Harem three times in a row...so yeah =D lucky me.
--------------------------------------
After the fight go back to the Lounge via the new door and...
SAVE SAVE SAVE SAVE SAVE!
After saving go to Paulownia and sell the Ebon Heart and buy some stuff that
you need.

I'll have my test buddy tell me later ^^
Difficulty: Five(5)

Keep fighting the weak spawns here to level up a bit...I couldn't really find
a lot of them but there are some...avoid the hard ones and you should be okay!
Make your way to the bottom for yet another big door and someone elses past!

This time you need to get everyone to atleast level 40 ._. Might take a while
but its worth it ^^ the stronger the better after all! right?
Train anywhere you want, again I recomened Caina...although it might be hard
to train Orthrus there its still the best place =D.
Collect some new Persona if you want, or some old ones that we used to fuse
yatagarasu
Look out for King Frost and Orthrus!!! They are one of the best persona you
can get! Why? because they have the skill to dodge their own weakness!
King Frost looks like a big white blob at the center of the card and Orthrus
looks like a lion with 2 heads. This way you have some idea of what they look
like ^^.

By the end this is how you should end up

Aigis- Level 42
Akihiko- Level 38, learns Diarama
Yukari- Level 41
Junpei- Level 42
Mitsuru- Level 40
--------------------------------------
Queen Mab- Level 28. It learns Recarm by this level which can revive a fallen
party member! VERY helpful. It also knows Posumudi which unpoisons someone!
yet another helpful skill. You can find Queen Mab on the first floors of Caina
King Frost- Level 33. It learns Growth 1 and Mabufula!
Orthrus- atleast level 30. It learns Dodge Ice and Fire Boost! =D

Party: Yukari, Junpei, and Mitsuru
Floors: 
Difficulty:

In this place you can get a nice ring called "Eye of Thunder"
Which raises the chance of dodging electric attacks! this is VERY useful
for Yukari since her weakness is electric so if you can score this one
you are set for the next fight. You can find this ring on rare chests around
this area. If you can't find this ring then I don't know how good you'll do in
the next boss fight > -<
There is also a "Eye of Flame" which is the exact same thing as the "Eye of
Thunder" but meant to dodge fire. If you can snag both of these they'll be
super helpful in the next boss fight. So best of luck!
Black Frost is a nice find on this one too because it has both Agilao and
Bufula, Nulls ice and is strong against fire! =D so yeah, try and get him
if you can.

Anyways, make your way down to the 9th floor for another save point.
After saving make sure you're ready for another boss fight.
A very hard boss fight.

Weakness: Fire

-------------------------------
The trick to this fight is pretty much just to knock them all down on your
turn and perform an All-Out-Attack.
Use Black Frost to knock down the Wheel and the Raven and use Yatagarasu
to knock down the sword, once they're all down perform an all out attack
on them. After the attack everyone else should knock them back down with
their own attacks
for example...
Mitsuru will most likely use Bufula on the wheel
Junpei will use Agilao on the raven
and Yukari will use Garula on the sword
BUT it only happens after you have scanned the shadows so remember to scan
each one of them every turn!
You should have this fight down in no time if you do this right.
If you still can't beat this you can check ZermousX's video on youtube
to see a better demonstration. On his video he uses Ken and Metis. But this
fight is still possible with Yukari, Junpei, and Mitsuru ^^(That's how I did
it).

Set Junpei to Knock Down
Set yourself to knock down too ;3
-------------------------------
This is similar to the last fight, knock them down and do as many
All-Out-Attacks as you can. Remember to scan every shadow though.
Use Black Frost to knock down the Book and Tiara and
Take-Mikazuchi to knock dowh the Idol, once down use an
All-Out-Attack!
For me this fight was actually quite easier than the one before
their attacks are less deadly and they usually only target a single
person, so you should be okay as long as you can endure their attacks.
With a couple All-Out-Attacks you should have these 3 begging for their
life in no time! ^^
--------------------------------------
Another less risky way of doing this is by pretty much ignoring the Idol
and just going for the other two while Mitsuru and Junpei do normal attacks
on the Idol AFTER they knock down the other shadows. Once both of them are
gone you can finish off the Idol with normal attacks or Agilao.
I used this one because Take-Mikazuchi is weak against Ice which the Idol
seems to use a lot and since Black Frost nulls Ice he's the best one for
this fight =D. Both methods work for sure but...one's more riskier than
the other

Set Junpei to Knock Down
Set Mitsuru to Knock Down
Set Yukaru to Heal/Support
and Yourself as knock down
-------------------------------
This is a fairly easy fight compared to the last one! =D
Start by scanning the Maya, then the Table and lastly the Magus.
Use Surt to knock down Maya and the Magus and King Frost to knock down
the Table. If you think your party can take their attacks next turn then
go for an All-Out-Attack, if you're a little scared then just heal yourself
or a party member and wait for them to stand up.
If the table uses Makarakarn use maragion to hit them all and since surt
drains fire you'll take the reflect off of them and you'll get a nice heal!
-------------------------------
Try to get rid of the Maya first since it uses Ghastly Wail, the one hit kill
attack you wanna get rid of it as soon as possible, keep knocking it down with
Agidyne and you should be okay, as long as you keep it from attacking you're
safe! but also make sure you don't get scared.
-------------------------------
Once the Maya is down focus on the Magus. Try knocking both of them down and
and deal out as many All-Out-Attacks as you can, you should be able to take
on both of their attacks by now. If you don't want to do All-Out-Attacks
just keep knocking them down and healing yourself or a party memeber when
you have nothing else to do on your turn, or just wait.
You should kill them both off in 1 or 2 All-Out-Attacks.
If all goes well you should have this fight down in no time!

sell the grail then...SAVE SAVE SAVE SAVE SAVE!

Why such a weird party? The next boss is hard...and the only attacks that
seem to have an effect on it are strike attacks. That's why we're bringing
Metis and Akihiko along. Try to level them up as much as you can...
Try and get akihiko to at least level 50 and Metis to at least 48
...so in a way this is a small training session.
Also, Try to get an Ubelluris, he'll be helpful for the next fight.
Akihiko learns Fist Master at level 50 which boosts up his strike attack!
very helpful for the next boss fight.
Try to get surt to level 58 so it learns Ragnarok and try to get yourself
to at least level 55.

and you just do as much damage as you can and heal
-------------------------------

This is one hell of a hard fight, Expect to die a couple of times =D
Pretty much all you can do in this fight is heal and attack
strike attacks are the only ones that seem to have any effect on this
gigantic beast but your pierce attack works just fine.
Hope that you get critical hits on this thing from metis and yourself
since you can pull All-Out-Attacks on it and take out a nice chunk of
its HP.
-------------------------------
This guy pretty much spams Magarudyne all the time along with some other
physical attacks, havnig an attack mirror would come in handy for this
fight just do it ends up hitting itself instead of all of you =D.
-------------------------------
having Quetzalcoatle helps in this fight because wind attacks don't hurt
him as much and has nice defense buffs for your party and debuff skills
for the minotaur which help out quite a bit! Without the defense buffs
Akihiko and Metis would be dying in one hit ^^'
-------------------------------
That's pretty much all the help I can give out...just beat it to death
and hope to get some crits...Use an attack mirror just in case it uses
Akasha Arts cuz that's a pretty deadly attack :X
If all goes well you should win~

helpful. Also, try and get Titania, she's pretty helpful and you'll need her
for a fusion later on.
Once you have Titania all you need is a Throne, which should be found at the
same place where you got Titania. Once you have both of them head down to

-------------------------------
This one isn't as hard as the one before but it's still pretty difficult.

Start by scaning the Drive then the Turret.
You'll want to knocl down both Drives with lightning attacks first. Once
they're down use a normal attack or switch off and use a bufu attack on
the turret to knock it down, your choice. If All goes well and you dont miss
you should have the Drives down in no time! 
-------------------------------
Once you have both Drives down its time to focus on the Turret, which is way
easier ^^' Now its time to focus on the Drive, Switch to any Ice Persona
you have like Black Frost and use Bufula to knock it down, then use an
All-Out-Attack to finish it off! With both you and Mitsuru knocking it down
to do All-Out-Attacks you should kill it in about 1 or 2.
Be quick about killing it though...you don't want it summoning yet another
drive ._.
-------------------------------
IF he does summon another one focus on the Turret and ignore the Drive.
The turret will keep on summoning more Drives if there aren't any on the
field with it. Once the Turret is gone repeat the same thing you did with
the other drives and you should finish the fight pretty quickly

-------------------------------
Start off by scanning the maya.
When the Maya summons a Jotun Scan it.
Use any -dyne/Ragnorok attacks on the Maya to start off.
When the Maya reaches about 3/4 HP it'll summon a Jotun.
It will summon a second Jotun on the next turn.
When both Jutons are summoned the Maya will try to Debuff your party
so try to get it down before it can actually do this > -<
-------------------------------
Keep Attacking the Maya while Junpei keeps attacking the Jutons
if you keep it up you should have the maya down pretty quick.
-------------------------------
Once the Maya is down its time to focus on the Jotuns!
The Jutons are a pain...
They'll exploit everyone's weakness then use Megidola which pretty much one
hit kills who ever was hit in the first place > -< so getting them down
is important. 
Put metis into Orgia Mode once the Maya is down and she'll beat the living
daylights out of the two Jotuns, with the help of everyone else of course =D.
-------------------------------
Here's how I actually did it.
Put Junpei and Metis to attack the first jotun that is summoned.
Yukari healed. I kept attacking the Maya with Agydine from the help of
Succubus since she doesn't have any weaknesses.
Jotun died by Metis and Junpei thanks to two crits.
Maya died after about 5 turns from the death of the first Jotun.
Put Metis into Orgia Mode. She crited it on her first turn.
Did and All-Out Attack. Win.
This was all LUCK > -> My whole party died at one point, and it was tough.
I managed to revive Yukari which the Jotun had some weird attraction to...
he would always attack her with Garudyne for some weird reason...that helped
a lot...haha...tought tough tough fight...
Good Luck to you all...> -< sorry if I wasn't much help on this one > -<'
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
redwing42's strategy:
The party should be Ken, Koromaru, and Metis.  These three have no elemental
weaknesses.  I then used Mekizeldek as Aigis' Persona, as it also has no
elemental weakness and has Mediarahan.  Any other healer with no elemental
weaknesses should work also.  I used Aigis as the healer, and set the other 3
to target the Maya.  When I played, the Maya actually summoned a Jotun in
rounds 2 and 3, rather than according to HP.  By keeping up with healing and
occasionally using a Balm of Life when needed, I was able to keep the Jotuns
from using Megidola during the entire battle, because they only seem to use
it once they hit a character's weakness.  After the Maya (and its buff/debuff
spells) was finished, it wasn't hard to take out the Jotuns.  Keep up the good
work, your FAQs have been both informative and entertaining.

Repel: Wind, Ice
-------------------------------
Set Yukari to Heal/Support
Mitsuru to Heal/Support as well
Junpei to Knock Down
-------------------------------
This is one hell of a tough battle...So be ready D=
The Seekers in this fight are weak against Fire, but like all previous shadows
they have the ability to dodge it(big surprise) Start off by scanning a Seeker
so your party avoids healing them or doing a dumb attack.
-------------------------------
Use Surt to try and knock down the Seekers as much as you can, if you ever
get them down attack the Cyclops with agidyne or which ever attack you wanna
use or just heal up your party~ which ever works for you.
-------------------------------
Once the Seekers are down its time to focus on the big Cyclops.
Don't be scared if you have to use a Soma around this time...
my party had almost no SP and low HP when I used it so it turned out well
for me ^^.
Only Fire Attacks really work on this guy as well...so just keep on using
Agidyne or Ragnarok to finish it off. Keep Mitsuru and Yukari to Heal so
your party has enough HP to endure his attacks > -<
I actually ended up using an Attack Mirror when he used Power Charge!
He ended up attacking himself x4 and killed himself. hehe. Nice Move? xDDD
-------------------------------
That's pretty much all the help I can give out...The rest pretty much depends
on how well you can controll the fight and how lucky you get > -<
Good Luck!
-------------------------------
If all goes well, you've won the match and you're one step closer to finishing
this game from hell ;~;
Exit Empyrean via the new door.

Try and get a Hariti from the 1st Empyrean door and get it to level 63
so it learns Recarmdra and Medirahan. Once you get it to that level
you will be using her in a fusion!
Fuse Hariti+Daisoujou+Black Frost to make...
Thunder God ODIN!
He will be VERY usefull in the upcomming fights!
So now we have two elemental gods: Odin and Surt :3
-------------------------------
After fusing Odin try leveling him up so he learns Thunder Reign.
And if you got lucky like me...Odin is holding something! :o
-------------------------------
Try and recover Hariti again since she has the best healing skills.
You will have to level her back up again sadly ;~;
-------------------------------
You should end up with this by the end of the training~

Before the next boss you have to fuse together
Scathach+Hariti+Yatagarasu to make Arahabaki.
Arahabaki learns tetrakarn at level 64! which is really helpful for
the next fight, so I strongly suggest you get it.
Level Arahabaki so it learns Tetrakarn~.
After making Arahabaki get yourself down to the 18th floor.
Check if your party's SP and HP are full if not make it full.

Alright! Last boss!

Start by scanning the Tejin, then Kaiden, and lastlt Onnen.
You'll wanna take down the Tejin first because it knows Mediarama and will
just end up healing your party, you don't want that now do you? ^^
Use Arahabaki's Tetrakarn so your party reflects attacks. This way they'll
be attacking themselfs instead of your party.
Use Odin's Thunder Reign. Odin should know Spell Master which makes all
spells use up half the SP they usually use, pretty helpful :3
After 3 or 4 turns the Tenjin should die.
--------------------------------
Once you have Tenjin out of the way focus on Kaiden.
Keep using tetrakarn every turn and let Mitsuru and Junpei deal with Kaiden.
He shouldn't be too much of a pain this way :3
--------------------------------
After Kaiden focus on Onnen.
This one's a little tougher than the others since it doesnt have a weakness
and has a strong resistance against physical attacks.
Keep Keep using Tetrakarn every turn and let Mitsuru and Junpei deal with
Onnen. After using Tetrakarn to protect your party use Rebellion to raise
the chance of your party hitting a crit. on him and him hitting a crit on
one of your party memebers but really hurting himself ;3.
IF you do manage to get a crit. on Onnen this fight is pretty much yours.
--------------------------------
If all goes well this fight should've been pretty easy thanks to Arahabaki :3
After the fight go get your rewards and head back to the lounge via the
new door.
Buy anything you need from the mall, sell the quills.

The point of this training is to level metis.
Get her to at least level 70...
I know it long...but you'll need her to be strong.
Why just you two? Less people=more exp right? :3
This is also the time where you pretty much wanna train any persona that

but it didn't work did it? o .o;; you could've just read the index thingy
and known that it wasn't the last boss...but oh well :3
Anyways, make your way down to the 26th floor.

or that help them in any way...You'll know why I have you do this later :3

Use Thunder Reign to start off
If you get lucky Junpei or Mitsuru will end up Criting him, do an
All-Out-Attack if this happens.
Use Thunder Reign throughout this whole fight and you should finish
it off in 8-10 turns, quicker if you get any All-Out-Attakcs going.
If all goes well you should beat him with ease.

Get the latests equips for Metis and yourself.

Reason why I had you take off any equips that helped your party before the
fight is cuz it'll just end up helping them in the last fights...instead of
helping you.

Thunder Reign will make things with Ken even faster.
After Ken is down its time to focus on Akihiko
-------------------------------
For Akihiko you'll want to use Ragnarok to finish him off faster
or you can use Bufudyne, Which ever you want.
Don't be afraid to use a Precious Egg if you need it, or a snuff soul.

-------------------------------
Set Metis to Heal/Support
-------------------------------
You'll wanna start off by targeting Koromaru.
Using Thunder Reign with oding and Hariti to heal yourself when needed is
probably the easiest way to finish him off. Metis can probably give out a
few criticals since Koromaru will most likely be paralyzed after using
Thunder Reign on him, so that'll be pretty helpful.
Once Junpei is down its time to focus on Junpei.
-------------------------------
Same deal as always pretty much, use Thunder Reign, Heal when needed
Pretty easy fight now ^^. Using Arahabaki's tetrakarn when Junpei
Powers up will just help you finish him off faster. He'll try to
put you into a panic with Tentarafoo once his HP is pretty low which
gets kinda annoying but you can easily get around that ^^.

Equip an Omega Drive on Metis if you can, if not put a Frenzy Bead.
Equip an something that helps you avoide Icew attacks for yourself, that way
you can dodge some of Mitsuru's attacks or buy a Agi Bracer to boost your fire
attack to knock down Yukari faster.

Angelic Grace, Mabufudyne(party), 
Weaknsses:
Nulls: Ice, Light, and Dark
-------------------------------
Start off with Yukari, since she can knock you down when you have Odin out
and can pretty much stop you from attacking, use Tetrakarn when you
can since Mitsuru tends to use Vorpal Blade quite a bit ^^;;
Use Ragnarok to take down Yukari faster.
You can also put Metis into Orgia Mode if you wanna finish this off even
faster. Heal When necessary.
After Yukari is down, its time to focus on Mitsuru.
-------------------------------
Use Thunder Reign to hit Mitsuru, since she uses Angelic Grace Thunder Reign
won't always hit her, but when it does she takes A LOT of damage which ends
this fight even sooner. Use Tetrakarn when needed too. Heal when needed. Rez
Metis if she dies too. If all goes well this fight should be yours! ^^
-------------------------------
After the fight watch the sad cutsceen.
After it go to the velvet room.
Fuse Quetzalcoatl, Loki, and Kali to make Anubis.
Anubis is pretty godly.
It learns Null Ice and Elec.
It learns Makarakarn which is just like Tetrakarn but with elemental attacks.
Train it until it learns all of its skills.

-------------------------------
Dark Embrace:
The scariest attack Erebus has.
When he uses it a small red and black orb will float infront of him.
This orb is charging up power, once it's done charging it'll unleash
all that power with an instead death to you in your party.
How do you stop it? Kick it's ass.
Use Thunder Reign as always.
Everyone else will most likely end up using their respective -dyne skills.
Once you mess up it's Dark Embrace it'll be down for 4 turns.
During these turns its VERY vulnerable and you end up doing a lot more
damage to it. Take this oppertuniy to do as much damage as you can!
-------------------------------
Weaknesses: None
Nulls: Light and Dark
-------------------------------
Set Yukari to Heal/Support
Set Junpei and Mitsuru to Full Assault
-------------------------------
Wow. Huge scary looking thing huh? Well LETS DO THIS!

Start off by scanning it.
Use Thunder Reign to hit it since it uses less SP
Use Makarakarn also so it hits itself.
With Makarakarn it ends up hitting it 4 times, which adds up to a little
over 400.
This is basicly the only thing you do throught out the whole battle...
except for when it uses Dark Embrace.
You should finish this fight if all goes well ^^.

After the fight watch the amazing ending to the whole P3 story! wooo :3
