     If you have any questions, comments, or you have something you want added to
     this guide then feel free to email me at “jagged_jim@yahoo.com” (without the
     quotation marks, of course...) Some things to note before you email me:
    
    -Make sure you put “P3 FES” somewhere in the subject line. If you don’t I
     will likely think that the email is junk and delete it.
    
    -Please read the guide before emailing me, it is quite annoying having to
     answer a question that I have already answered in this guide. (...of course
     if you’re not reading the guide then what are the chances that are going to
     read this warning?)
    
    -I am notoriously bad at checking email. (...and even worse at answering it)
     So if you are trying to contact me then you will just have to be patient.
    
    -Do not, not, not, not, NOT send me ANY attachments with your email. I don’t
     care what the attachment is, I won’t look at it and I will likely delete the
     email immediately. (Also I will NEVER send any attachments with my emails, so
     if you receive something from my email address and it has an attachment on
     it, delete it, immediately.)
    
    -Please use proper spelling and grammar in your email, it’s just common
     courtesy. I don’t care if it’s perfect, as long as you make the effort.
     Emails with “si teh awsome” in it, however, will likely be ignored.
    
    -A pet peeve of mine is when people replace “you” with “u.” It’s only two
     extra key strokes people, jeez.

     0.1 – 9/6/07
     1.0 - 10/1/07
     1.3 (Aegis) - 6/16/08 - The FES rewrite is now complete. The Journey’s
                             Calendar and Tartarus Guardian sections have been
                             updated to be valid with both versions, I finally got
                             around to adding answers to events in the Social Link
                             section and also added the new Aeon S.Link as well,
                             and the Elizabeth Request section has all the FES
                             requests completed. Now all that’s left now is The
                             Answer walkthrough to complete... This update is
                             dedicated to the Spokane Chiefs Hockey Club and
                             especially to Chris Bruton, just look at it as making
                             sure that it will be a moment that nobody will ever
                             forget. :P

     Persona 3 (or P3) is the forth (yes, forth) installment in the long-running
     Persona series, which in itself is a part of the even longer running Megami
     Tensei (or MegaTen) series.
    
     The Persona series has had a bit of a checkered history when it comes to
     North American releases. The first Persona was notoriously butchered, (The
     script was altered to make it seem like the story takes place in America as
     opposed to Japan, The character art was changed to a more western style, and
     so on) the second installment was actually released as two separate games, of
     which we only got one. (the second one) Thankfully Persona 3 is well
     represented on its journey to this side of the Pacific, (Aegis/Aigis gaffe
     notwithstanding) with a well written script and high quality voice work. (for
     the most part *glares at Fuuka*) We even got FES, (eventually) an expansion
     pack/directors cut of P3.
    
     Since there are certain aspects of the game that happens in FES that doesn’t
     happen in the original game (and to a lesser extent, some aspects in the
     original game that doesn’t happen in FES) This guide uses tags to
     differentiate between the two versions. Basically, if I put <P3> in somewhere
     I’m talking about the original release of Persona 3 and <FES> means the later
     FES release.

    ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||Hints and Tips [003]|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
    ———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————
    
    -Save often. Death can come unexpectedly in Tartarus, so make sure you save
     every time you go there.
    
    -Remember to Analyze every enemy you come across. As with previous MegaTen
     games, knowing how to attack your enemies is vital to your success in
     Persona 3. This includes Bosses, as although you might not learn anything
     from it, it will affect how your party members react. (They won’t use attacks
     that the boss is immune to, and they’ll exploit the boss’ weaknesses as well.)
    
    -Wait for sale days when buying anything. Saving money is nice, isn’t it?
    
    -Never take tired or sick party members into Tartarus, and if you are tired or
     sick yourself then postpone any plans to assault Tartarus and instead get a
     good night’s sleep.
    
    -For the most part you should only use your Personae to attack and not your
     weapons. You should concentrate on improving your Personae and armor before
     improving your weapons. That’s not to say that you should completely ignore
     your weapons, as the amount of damage done during an All-Out Attack is
     dependant on your weapons.
    
    -You don’t always have to do an All-Out Attack when you knock all the enemies
     down. In fact, if you don’t think that you can kill the enemy with a single
     All-Out Attack it’s better in the long run to simply relent and spend the
     extra turn healing or buffing up. An enemy that has been knocked down will
     waste their next turn by getting up, while an enemy that survives an All-Out
     Attack will be up and free to use their next turn to make your life a living
     hell.
    
    -If you fuse a Persona with a Heart Item make sure that you register it in the
     Persona Compendium. Registering the Persona will also save the Heart Item, so
     you will to quickly resummon that Persona again and get multiple copies of
     that item. (especially if you register it just before it gains that final
     level needed before it gives you its Heart Item)
    
    -Don’t just head back to the Dorm after school, do something! Improve your
     Social Links, eat at a restaurant, see a movie, anything! By the same token
     during the evenings when you’re not going to Tartarus you should spend your
     time drinking coffee, singing karaoke, Or Visiting Game Panic (in <FES>) and
     then studying in your room.
    
    -Remember that it takes a LOT longer to raise your Academics stat than the
     Charm and Courage stats. Make sure to donate 1,000 Yen at the Naganaki Shrine
     Everyday (in <P3> at least) and study every night you don’t go to Tartarus.
     (If you are Tired/Sick however, you shouldn’t study but go to bed early
     instead)
    
    -The size of the shadows doesn’t indicate the enemy’s strength, but rather
     their numbers. A tiny shadow will result in a battle against a single enemy,
     while a large shadow can have up to five enemies.
    
    -Note that the amount of experience shown at the end of a battle is only what
     the Protagonist earns, not what your allies/Personae earn.
    
    -Contrary to previous MegaTen games, you actually CAN inflict status ailments
     on bosses. If you are having problems with a certain boss you can try to
     Panic, Charm, or Distress it to make things more manageable.
    
    -The Armageddon combination (Lucifer/Helel + Satan) is incredibly powerful and
     will kill any enemy in the game. (save one) This, and the fact that Lucifer
     learns Victory Cry (in <P3> at least, Helel doesn’t learn Victory Cry so you
     will have to get it on him through fusion) will make this game very, very
     easy.

     Due to the way this game is set up a traditional walkthrough is not the most
     effective way to cover this game. Instead the guide for The Journey (aka the
     main game of <P3>) will be split into two parts, one a calendar listing the
     important dates as you progress through the school year and the other a boss
     guide listing the floor bosses of Tartarus. Note that I will NOT be telling
     you how to spend your afternoons or when to go to Tartarus in this guide.
     Although it is possible to max out all of the Social Links in a single play
     through, I personally find it rather restrictive (at least in <P3>, in <FES>
     the restrictions on ranking up S.Links are somewhat relaxed) and will not
     cover it in this guide. If you are interested in how to do this you can check
     out penguin_knight’s Max Social Links FAQs for more information.

    SPOILER NOTE: Although this walkthrough is more or less spoiler-free, it is 
                  NOT totally free of spoilers. So if you are trying to avoid
                  spoilers, don’t read ahead of the spot you need help in.
                  You have been warned.

                                     =============
    ================================|April [004.1]|================================
                                     =============
    
     -4/7: Welcome to the first day of the rest of your life! Start by naming your
           Protagonist. (Remember, it’s Last Name first, you don‘t want to spend
           the rest of your life being called Smith John now, do you?) After your
           introduction to Gekkoukan High you end up back at the dorm. There isn’t
           anything going on here so just go to your room and sleep.
    
     -4/8: You’ve got your first quiz today, the answer in <P3> is “Fuyuhiko
           Yoshimura,” while the answer in <FES> is “Utsubo Kubota.” Answer
           correctly for a boost in Charm. When you return to the dorm you’ll
           meet Ikutsuki, ask him questions if you want or say “No, I‘m good”
           to end the conversation, then go up to your room to sleep. 
    
     -4/9: There’s a lecture today in both versions, you can either stay awake to
           get a boost in academics or take a nap for a chance to improve your
           status. Personally I would recommend to never sleep through a lecture,
           as you are going to need all the Academics you can get.
    
           After school you skip straight to the Dark Hour. When you get control
           head for the roof. When you get there you will have the first battle of
           the game against two Cowardly Maya. Use Orpheus’ Bash skill to finish
           them off quickly.
    
     -4/17: You finally wake up today. 
    
     -4/18: School on a Saturday? Ugh. There is a Quiz today, the answer in <P3>
            is “How the tools were made,” while the answer in <FES> is “Mud huts.”
            When you get back to the dorm climb up to the 4th floor and the Fool
            Social Link will be established.  
    
     -4/19: Junpei joins SEES today. Hooray for Junpei!
    
     -4/20: You will have your first foray into Tartarus tonight. It isn’t too
            difficult, just make your way through the level, when you encounter a
            shadow Mitsuru will give you a tutorial on combat. Listen to it (or
            not) then use Agi to knock them down and initiate an All-Out Attack to
            finish them off. Split the group up when Mitsuru tells you to, then
            find the Access Point and return to the lobby. Your Fool Social Link
            will improve to Rank 2 when you get back. Leave Tartarus when you’re
            done.
    
     -4/21: There’s a lecture today in both versions. You have your first free
            afternoon today. After school go to the Police Station in Paulownia
            Mall, when you get there Akihiko will give you 5,000 Yen, but don’t
            buy anything at the mall just yet. (wait for the store’s sale days)
    
     -4/22: After school is over you will be asked by Kenji, one of your
            classmates if you would like to get some ramen with him. Do so and
            you’ll establish the Magician Social Link.
    
     -4/23: By the way, if you talk to the Student with Glasses near the door in
            your classroom and let him tell you about the sights of the Bay Area
            you’ll immediately warp to the city map. The school’s sports clubs are
            recruiting today. After school you will be able to join the Swimming,
            Track, or Kendo Teams. Join one of them (it doesn‘t matter which) to
            establish the Chariot Social Link.
    
     -4/25: The Bookworms Used Bookstore at Iwatodai Station will reopen today.
            When you enter it the old couple there will mention the Persimmon Tree
            at Gekkoukan. After leaving the bookstore return to the school and
            find the Persimmon Tree at the courtyard connecting the main building
            with the gym then examine it to get a Persimmon Leaf. Take the leaf
            back to the bookstore and show it to them to establish the Hierophant
            Social Link.
    
     -4/27: There’s a Quiz today, the answer in <P3> is “2,” (duh) while the 
            answer in <FES> is “6,000 years ago.”  After school Mitsuru will talk
            to you about joining the Student Council. Head down to the Faculty
            Office and talk to Ms. Toriumi about joining the Student Council. From
            there you can head to the Student Council Room to establish the
            Emperor Social Link. 
    
     -4/29: If you decide to play Innocent Sin Online today, you’ll establish the
            Hermit Social Link. Just be aware that playing the game will take up
            the entire day. (meaning you’ll skip the Evening period and go
            straight to the next day)
    
     -4/30: There is a lecture today in both versions. When you get back to the
            dorm you’ll get a call from Elizabeth telling you to come to the
            Velvet Room. When you go to the Velvet Room Elizabeth will start her
            Requests side quest.
    
                                      ===========
    =================================|May [004.2]|=================================
                                      ===========
    
     -5/3: If you turn on the TV in you room today (and every Sunday for the rest
           of the year) you will get a home shopping program. If you order
           whatever is being sold on the program it will be delivered to your room
           on the following Tuesday. (If you are exploring Tartarus on that day
           you will get the items the next time you go to your room) This week’s
           items are a Slash Ward and a Sappy Jelly for 2980 Yen. Oh, and by the
           way, if you have plans to meet with someone on Sundays you won’t be
           able to watch the home shopping program.
    
     -5/5: Make sure that you buy a “Mad Bull” item from one of the Dorm’s Vending
           Machines tonight, as you’ll need it tomorrow.
    
     -5/6: There’s a quiz today, the answer in <P3> is “Basic,” while the answer
           in <FES> is “Soft Water.” After school is over go to Naganaki Shrine
           and talk to the girl standing by the Jungle Gym. She will introduce
           herself as Maiko and then ask you for some food, so go and buy some
           “Weird Takoyaki” from the Takoyaki stand in Iwatodai Station and give
           them to her. Now she wants something to drink so give her that Mad Bull
           you got yesterday. (You did get one, right?) She will ask if you’ll
           play with her again tomorrow. Agree to do so. 
    
     -5/7: Head back to Naganaki Shrine and play with Maiko to establish the
           Hanged Man Social Link.
    
     -5/8: This is the day before the Full Moon, and although the game doesn’t
           mention anything about it (other than that rather ominous countdown in
           the upper right corner of the screen) there is something I should
           mention about these days. In <P3> your and everyone else’s status will
           be locked at “Good” today, and if you were tired or sick you will be
           instantly upgraded to “Good.” (but on the flip side, if your status was
           “Great” then you will be downgraded to “Good”) This essentially gives
           you unlimited time in Tartarus. In <FES> however, you will NOT have
           infinite stamina on the nights before the full moon and you will get
           tired. It does take longer to get tired on these nights, and allies
           that are tired won’t automatically leave Tartarus the next time you go
           back to the lobby. Also keep in mind that if you or any of your allies
           are already tired/sick when the night before a full moon comes around
           they will remain tired/sick.
    
     -5/9: It seems that there is something is amiss at the Monorail. When you get
           control run to the monorail. When you get there you’ll climb aboard,
           then continue on down the Monorail Cars. Eventually there is a scene
           where Junpei runs off and you get attacked by two Spurious Books. Use
           fire to get rid of both of them quickly. After the battle you get
           attacked by two more Spurious Books and a Heat Balance. Use fire on the
           Spurious books and wind on the Heat Balance. After the battle continue
           forward until you find Junpei again. You’ll get attacked by a Spurious
           Book, a Heat Balance, and a Dancing Hand. Use fire on the Spurious Book
           and Dancing Hand while using Wind on the Heat Balance. After the battle
           the Monorail will start moving, and you’ve only have eight minutes
           before it crashes! Unfortunately you also get attacked by two Dancing
           Hand and a Laughing Table. Fortunately they are all weak to fire, so
           you should be able to knock them down and All-Out Attack them quickly.
           In the next car you’ll have to deal with random shadows. Take care of
           them quickly and in the next car you’ll have a boss battle.
    
    --------------------------------------Boss-------------------------------------
       Priestess
    
     -Repel: Ice, Null: Light/Dark
     -Recommended Level: 7
    
     As long you have at least five minutes remaining when you start this battle
     you should be okay. She doesn’t have any weaknesses, so just hit her with
     your best non-ice attack. If she summons two Muttering Tiaras, use Bufu to
     get rid of them before they can heal Priestess. If you need Healing then use
     the Cadenza (Orpheus + Apsaras) combination.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           After the battle is over the Fool Social Link will improve to Rank 3
           and you’ll get the “Conserve SP” Tactic as well.
    
     -5/10: The home shopping program is today, they are offering a Giga Power
            Band and a Diet Food for 2,980 Yen. You’ll also get a call from
            Elizabeth informing you that floors 17-40 of Tartarus are now open.
            She doesn’t mention it in her call, but the Persona Compendium will
            also become available today. I would advise against trying to climb
            the new floors until after Mid-Terms, however, as Akihiko will join
            the party at that time and the extra muscle is abig help with the
            enemies in this section. You’ll probably want your nights free for
            studying, anyways.
    
     -5/11: The Mid-Term Exams are a week away, this means you won’t be able to
            improve any Social Links with Gekkoukan High students until Mid-Terms
            are over. Social Links that don’t involve students (i.e. Hanged Man,
            Hierophant, and Hermit) are unaffected. There is also a lecture today.
    
     -5/13: There’s a quiz today, the answer in <P3> is “General Relativity
            Theory,” while the answer in <FES> is “About 1,700km/h.”

     -5/17: The home shopping program is today, they are offering an All-Purpose
            Katana and two Diet Foods for 5,980 Yen.
    
     -5/18: Mid-Term Exams start today. The first day’s test depends on your
            Academics stat. For best results you need to have rank three in
            Academics.
    
     -5/19: Mid-Term Exams continue, the answer in <P3> is “Mangekyo,” while the

            the answer in <FES> is “Faster than sound.”
    
     -5/21: Mid-Term Exams continue, the answer in <P3> is “Basic,” while the
            answer in <FES> is “Hard water.”
    
     -5/22: Mid-Term Exams continue, the answer in <P3> is “How the tools are
            made,” while the answer in <FES> is “Nara.”
    
     -5/23: Mid-Term Exams conclude today. How well you do on today’s test depends
            on you Academics stat. For best results, you need rank three in
            academics. You are finally able to reenter Tartarus tonight, but more
            than that, Akihiko joins the party tonight. Yipee skippy!
    
     -5/24: The home shopping program is today, they are offering an All-Purpose
            Apron and two Diet Foods for 5,980 Yen.
    
     -5/25: The Mid-Term Exam results are posted today. Depending on how well you
            did you’ll get a boost to your Charm Stat. (Getting top marks will
            give you a bigger bonus than merely being above average.) There is
            also a lecture today.
    
     -5/26: If you got top marks on the Mid-Term Exam you can talk to Mitsuru
            after school and she’ll give you a Page Card Set. (Sword of Page, Cup
            of Page, Wand of Page, Coin of Page) If you got anything less than top
            marks, however, you get nothing.
    
     -5/28: There’s a lecture today in both versions.
    
     -5/29: In <FES> there’s a lecture today.

     -6/1: Summer uniforms hooray!
    
     -6/2: There’s a lecture today in both versions.
    
     -6/5: If you are curious, the correct answers for Yuka-tan’s Happy Quiz Time
           Show are: “There were three victims,” and “They hung out together.” It
           doesn’t really matter if you answer correctly, but at least you can
           look like you did more than just spend your week eating Ramen and
           singing Karaoke.
    
     -6/7: The home shopping program is today, they are offering a bottle of
           Perfume and five Medicines for 3,980 Yen.
    
     -6/8: You begin Operation Rescue Fuuka in your classroom at Gekkoukan High.
           Make your way down to the Faculty Office, and when Yukari asks what key
           she’s holding tell her it’s the Gym key.
    
           After some scenes you end up separated from the others on a random
           floor of Tartarus. Start climbing upward, fighting or avoiding Shadows,
           until on the third floor you reunite with Junpei and Akihiko. After a
           bunch of scenes Fuuka will take over the support role from Mitsuru and
           you will get thrown into a boss battle.
    
    --------------------------------------Boss-------------------------------------
       Empress, Emperor
    
     -Variable Resistances (see below)
     -Recommended Level: 13
    
     You may want to equip a bow for the Protagonist, so that every character has
     a different physical attack type. (You pierce, Junpei slash, and Akihiko
     strike) Also make sure that you are able to use all four elemental types.
    
     At the start of the battle Empress will have a weakness to the three weapon
     types while nullifying the four elemental types. Emperor on the other hand
     nullifies the three weapon types but has a weakness to the four elemental
     types. After taking some damage, however, they will use Paradigm Sift, which
     shuffles around their resistances. And when their HP gets very low they will
     only be vulnerable to a single type of damage and nullify all others.
    
     Make sure that you have Fuuka reanalyze them every time they use Paradigm
     Shift, then keep hitting their weaknesses and you should be able come out on
     top here. Although the Orpheus and Apsaras Personae are probably getting a
     little long in the tooth by now, their Cadenza combination is still the best
     choice for healing.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           After the battle you will get the super-useful “Knock Down” Tactic.
    
     -6/9: The Shinshoudo Antique store opens today. Also you will be unable to
           enter Tartarus for the rest of the week.
    
     -6/10: There’s a lecture today in both versions.
    
     -6/12: The Death Social Link is established today.
    
     -6/13: There’s a lot of things happening today. First and foremost is that
            Fuuka joins the team and Mitsuru becomes a selectable character.
            Nifty. You’re also finally able to re-enter Tartarus tonight. Remember
            that from now on you need to talk to Fuuka instead of Mitsuru if you
            want to enter Tartarus. Floors 41-64 of Tartarus are now available to
            explore.
    
     -6/14: The home shopping program is today, they are offering a Brand Purse
            and a bottle of Perfume for 5,980 Yen.
    
     -6/15: There’s a quiz today, the answer in <P3> is “a colon,” while the
            answer in <FES> is “And...”
    
     -6/17: For some reason the quizzes that whacko nurse gives you are exactly
            the same in both <P3> and <FES>, so the answer in both games is
            “Shamanism.” The Culture Clubs are recruiting today. After School you
            can join either the Art, Music, or Photography Clubs (Like with the
            Chariot S.Link, it doesn‘t matter which one you join) to establish the
            Fortune Social Link.
    
     -6/21: The home shopping program is today, they are offering a Land Badge and

     -6/29: There’s a quiz today, the answer In <P3> is “Leonardo da Vinci,” while
            the answer in <FES> is “It can go either way.” Just FYI, with one
            thing and another this will be the final full week you’ll be able to
            improve student Social Links for about two months.

           Dis-Charms and Me Patra Gems for the coming full moon. You want to have
           at least ten of both Dis-Charms and Me Patra Gems.
    
     -7/5: The home shopping program is today, they are offering a Kevlar Vest and
           four Super Diet Food for 14,800 Yen.
    
     -7/7: For tonight’s operation Yukari will be a compulsory member. You are
           given the chance to choose the other two party members for tonight. I
           usually go with Akihiko and Junpei. When you reach the hotel climb up
           to the third floor and enter the Hierophant’s Chamber. Inside you’ll
           find the Hierophant, and he is not happy about you entering his
           Chamber.
    
    --------------------------------------Boss-------------------------------------
       Hierophant
    
     -Repel: Elec, Null: Light/Dark
     -Recommended Level: 20
    
     He mostly attacks with electricity attacks, but he can use Prophecy of Ruin
     which can make the entire party afraid. Pretty simple battle, really. Just
     hit him with your best non-electric attacks and if anyone becomes afraid use
     a Me Patra Gem. He can cause problems if he decides to pick on Yukari with
     his electricity attacks, but you should be able to take him down eventually.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           Well that was fun, but now let’s head back to the Dorm and... The
           door’s locked! Well... Why don’t we do as Fuuka suggests and search the
           room for the mystery shadow. Check the mirror and you’ll get zapped.
    
           You wake up in one of the rooms of the hotel. Answer “What was I...”,
           “That’s not true!”, “I can’t give in!”, and “Now’s not the time!” to
           shake off the Shadow’s influence. (and to prevent the game from getting
           an AO rating...)
    
           Hanky panky adverted, climb up to the second floor to reunite with your
           other members. Fuuka will now call to tell you that the boss is back in
           the Hierophant’s Chamber, but the door is being sealed by the some of
           the mirrors in this place. You will have to destroy the mirrors to undo
           the seal, but if you destroy the wrong mirror you will get zapped back
           to the first floor and you will have to start over again. Also note
           that random Shadows have popped up in the hotel. Start by breaking the
           mirror in Room 205, then climb up the third floor and break the mirror
           in Room 304 to break the seal on the door to the Hierophant’s Chamber,
           enter it to fight a new boss.
    
    --------------------------------------Boss-------------------------------------
       Lovers
    
     -Null: Light/Dark
     -Recommended Level: 21
    
     Compared to Hierophant I think this boss is a little easier to handle. It
     doesn’t have any resistances to worry about, (other than the standard
     Light/Dark immunity for bosses) so just use your best attacks. It uses
     Maragion and can charm you with Marin Karin and Holy Arrow or Panic you with
     Pulinpa. It really sucks if the Protagonist gets charmed here, but
     unfortunately there isn’t much you can do about it. As long as your Dis-Charm
     and Me Patra Gem supply holds out you should be alright.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           After the battle the Fool Social Link will improve to Rank Four and you

           the answer in <FES> is “I failed, it’s over now.” Wouldn’t you know it,
           we ended up saving the world just in time for Final Exams, so no
           student S.Links for you. 
    
     -7/9: There’s another quiz today, the answer in <P3> is “Heian-Kyo became the
           Capital,” while the answer in <FES> is “The Konden Einen Shizaihou.”
           Floors 65-89 of Tartarus are now available to explore. 
    
     -7/10: There’s yet another quiz today, the answer in both versions is
            “Kabbalah”

     -7/18: Final Exams conclude today, your performance on today’s test depends
            on your Academics score. For best results you want to have rank five
            in Academics.
    
     -7/19: The home shopping program is today, they are offering a Mage’s Mark
            and ten Super Diet Food for 39,800 Yen.

            complete and total failure. You eventually find a strange girl
            standing out on the pier. You resolve to try talking to her, but when
            you do she will run off into the forest. (Smooth move Casanova...)
            Follow her into the forest and follow the path until you find her
            again. After a series of wacky hijinks and amusing misunderstandings

            and she will join SEES. Sweetness!

            Yukari and your Charm stat is at Rank Six You will be able to walk
            home with her. Doing so will establish the Lovers Social Link.
    
     -7/25: There is a lecture today in <FES>. If you got top marks on the Final
            Exams talk to Mitsuru after school and she will give you a Knight Card
            Set. (Sword of Knight, Cup of Knight, Wand of Knight, Coin of Knight)

     -8/2: The big sporting event is today.
    
     -8/3: If you head down to Iwatodai Station you’ll find Mamoru sitting on a
           bench across from the bookstore. Talk to him and if you have rank four
           in Courage he will challenge you to an eating contest. Accept the
           challenge and the Star Social Link will be established.
    
     -8/6: After your meeting with Strega form a party and head out after the
           Shadow. This area is just a single, long tunnel, but do be aware that
           there are random enemies when you reach 33m Underground. When you reach
           the end of the tunnel you will find the boss.
    
    --------------------------------------Boss-------------------------------------
       Chariot + Justice
    
     -Null: Light/Dark
     -Recommended Level: 28
    
     This is a rather interesting battle. They start the battle as one enemy, but
     after a couple of turns they will split into two separate enemies. After a
     few more turns they will recombine into a single enemy. While they are
     together they will mainly use Kill Rush, but they can also Poison you with
     Poison Mist and Panic you with Tentarafoo. When they separate Chariot will
     mainly attacks with Kill Rush augmented by Power Charge, while Justice mainly
     attacks with Twin Shot and Torrent Shot. Justice can use Hama, so be ready
     for that.
    
     You’ll want to bring both Yukari and Mitsuru for healing, hopefully one (or
     both) of them has learned Diarama by now as it makes this fight a whole lot
     easier. The third character is up to you, I usually choose Aigis as she has
     both single and multiple-target physical attacks. Their only resistance is to
     Light and Darkness, so just use your best attack against them. (if you have a
     Persona with Getsu-ei use that, as it’s quite an effective attack during the
     full moon)
    
     The one thing about this battle that you have to remember is that you
     absolutely must defeat both of them at the same time. If only one of them is
     dead then the living Shadow will revive the dead one with Samarecarm,
     reviving them and bringing them back up to full HP to add insult to injury.
     If you “kill” them while they are combined they will separate with 1 HP each.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           After the battle you will get the “Same Target” Tactic.
    
     -8/7: The Death Social Link will improve to Rank Five today.

           and five Veggie Supplements for 24,800 Yen. From now on in <FES> you
           can take Koromaru out for a walk during certain evenings. Usually this
           will just give you an item of some kind, (I‘ve gotten anything from a
           Mad Bull to a Traesto Gem) but on certain nights you will either have
           the option to go with a SEES member or you meet with a Social Link on
           your walk. 
    
     -8/10: Summer School!? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! From now until the 15th the entire
            day is going to be spent in Summer School, and you will get a bonus to

            the invitation will improve your Social Link with that girl.

            invited to see the Film Festival with one of your classmates.
            Accepting this invitation will improve your Social Link with that
            person as well as improving one of your stats. Note that you won’t
            receive an invitation if you haven’t established a Social Link with
            that person yet. (Or if that Social Link has gone into a Reverse
            state) Also note that the schedules in <P3> and <FES> are different
            from each other. The <FES> schedule has been split into two parts.
    
            <P3> Film Festival Schedule:

            shopping program. If you go on a walk tonight in <FES> then you’ll
            meet with the Hierophant S.Link.
    
     -8/24: During this week in <FES> you will be able to invite your fellow SEES
            members to see a movie with you. The only real difference is that you

            the start of the day. If you go to the movies with Junpei, Fuuka, or
            Mitsuru you will be able to follow it up with a walk with them in the

                                   =================
    
     -9/1: School is back in session, and to celebrate there is a quiz today. The
           answer in <P3> is “You slide like crazy,” while the answer in <FES> is
           “Superconductivity.” In <FES> you can also go to the Nurse’s Office and
           listen to him babble about Tarot readings if you’re into that kind of
           thing.
    
     -9/3: Shinjiro rejoins SEES today. Fun for all!
    
     -9/5: Not much to say about this operation, really, just form a party and
           enter Club Escapade for a boss battle. You won’t be able to use Junpei
           for this battle, and the boss uses a lot of electricity attacks, so
           Yukari and Aigis are out. I would choose a party of Mitsuru, Akihiko
           and either Ken or Shinjiro.
    
    --------------------------------------Boss-------------------------------------
       Hermit
    
     -Drain: Elec, Null: Light/Dark
     -Recommended Level: 36
    
     As long as you have Take-Mikazuchi set this battle shouldn’t give you too
     many problems. Hermit’s big attack is Giga Spark, a very painful Electrical
     attack, but fortunately you have ample warning when he’s about to use it. He
     starts by using Charge, then two turns doing NOTHING, then finally releasing
     Giga Spark.
    
     While Giga Spark is painful, you are essentially given three free turns to
     heal up and Tarunda and/or Marakukaja before he uses it, and if you have
     Take-Mikazuchi as your Persona you will nullify this attack completely. One
     final note, if your Take-Mikazuchi has been leveled up he will have Getsu-ei,
     which is quite effective in this battle.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
           You will get the “Attack Fallen” Tactic after the battle.
    
     -9/6: The home shopping program is today, they are offering a Brand Watch and
           five Snuff Souls for 10,000 Yen. If you go on a walk tonight in <FES>
           you’ll meet with the Justice S.Link.
    
     -9/7: Floors 115-139 of Tartarus are now available to explore.

            answer in <FES> is “Gochisou-sama.”
    
     -9/11: There is another quiz today, the answer in both versions is “The
            Hermetica.”
    
     -9/12: There is a lecture today in both versions. The Death Social Link will
            improve to Rank 6 today.
    
     -9/13: The home shopping program is today, They are offering a set of Prayer
            Beads and a Health Supplement for 10,000 Yen.
    
     -9/14: There is a quiz today, the answer in <P3> is “It‘s indeterminate,”
            while the answer in <FES> is “Can‘t let others produce.”
    
     -9/15: In <FES> you can go on a walk with Shinjiro tonight.
    
     -9/18: TYPHOON! From now until the 20th you’re going to be stuck inside the
            Dorm, which means no Tartarus, no S.Links, and no Shopping for you.
            There won’t be a home shopping program on the 20th, either.
    
     -9/21: You can now do Cross Spread, (4 Personae) Pentagon Spread,
            (5 Personae) and Hexagon Spread (6 Personae) fusions at the Velvet
            Room starting today. (well, technically this became available on the
            18th, but thanks to that Typhoon you couldn’t get to the Velvet Room
            until today)
    
     -9/23: In <FES> there is a Film Festival today. You will be able to invite
            Shinjiro with you. Your Courage will increase if you go to the
            festival.
    
     -9/24: There’s a lecture today in both versions.
    
     -9/26: There is a quiz in <FES> today, the answer is “The Tetractys.” You can
            also go on a walk with tonight Shinjiro as well.
    
     -9/27: The home shopping program is today, they are offering a Skrep and four
            Health Supplements for 35,800 Yen. In <FES> you will also be able to

                                    ===============
    
     -10/1: There’s a lecture today in both versions.
    
     -10/3: There’s a lecture today in both versions. Oh, and by the way,
            tonight’s the last time you will be able to use Shinjiro, ever.
    
     -10/4: Tonight’s operation is more or less like the last one, where you
            simply form a party and fight the boss. You won’t have Ken or Shinjiro
            for this fight. One of the upcoming bosses does use Wind skills, but
            they do it infrequently enough so that Junpei won’t be too much of a
            liability in this battle. Other than that just use your best
            characters and you should do alright.
    
    --------------------------------------Boss-------------------------------------
       Fortune, Strength
    
     -(both) Null: Light/Dark
     -Recommended Level: 45
    
     At the start of the battle Strength will encase Fortune in a force field,
     preventing you from attacking (or even targeting) it. The only way to get rid
     of the force field is to kill Strength. 
    
     Strength is a pretty standard physical attacker, with powerful attacks like
     Heat Wave and Gigantic Fist. She can use Sexy Dance however, which can really
     ruin your day. Still, you should have access to Mediarama by now so you
     should be able to keep up with her.
    
     On every turn Fortune will use Wheel of Fortune, which summons a giant
     spinner. There are three different spinners: one will inflict the Panic,
     Distressed, Enraged, or Afraid ailments; One which casts Matarukaja,
     Matarunda, Marakukaja, or Marakunda; and one which will either heal for 50 HP
     or damage for 50, 100, or 200 HP. Which side these spinners effects depend on
     the color it lands on, if it land on a blue section the result will be
     favorable to you, While if it lands on red the result will be bad.
    
     Being able to control which side comes off worse on the Wheel of Fortune is
     the key to this battle. What you want to do is be looking not at the pointer,
     but rather at a spot directly opposite of the pointer, as that is where the
     spinner will end up when it’s stopped. What I do is from your point of view
     use where Fortune intersects the far edge of the spinner as a reference
     point, then move this spot over a few tics to the left. This is the spot
     where the pointer is going to land when you press the X button.
    
     When you kill off Strength the force field will drop and you will finally be
     able to attack Fortune. He also stops using Wheel of Fortune on every turn
     and will throw out the occasional Torrent Shot or (Ma)Garudyne. When he does
     use Wheel of Fortune, however, the spinner will be made up entirely of damage
     sections. What’s more, there will be a lot more Red areas than Blue this time.
     Hopefully you’ve gotten the technique of stopping the spinner where you want
     down, because you will be tested here. As long as you can keep everyone’s
     HP above 200 just in case you screw up on Wheel of Fortune you should do
     okay.
    
     PS - If you manage to inflict the Fear ailment on Strength you can kill her
          in one shot with Ghastly Wail.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                                    ================
    
    
    
     -11/1: The home shopping program is today, they are offering a Berserker’s
            Seal and two Mega Proteins for 39,800 Yen. In <FES> you can go on a
            walk with Yukari tonight.
    
     -11/2: The Fool Social Link will improve to Rank 6 today.
    
     -11/3: Time to face the final Shadow! Start by assembling a party. Koromaru
            is a good choice because he nullifies darkness. Bring along Mitsuru or
            Yukari for healing and your best attacker for the final slot. When you
            are ready Talk to Fuuka and begin the operation.
    
    --------------------------------------Boss-------------------------------------
       Takaya, Jin
    
     -(Takaya) Repel: Light, Null: Dark, (Jin) Repel: Fire/Dark, Null: Light
     -Recommended Level: 53
    
     For this battle you want a Persona that protects against Darkness as Jin can
     and will use Mudo and Mudoon. Mot is an excellent choice here as he repels
     Darkness and doesn‘t have any elemental weaknesses for Takaya to exploit.
     Takaya mainly uses single target -Dyne level elemental attacks, but he can
     Also hit you with a Mind-Charged Megido so don’t slack off on the healing.
    
     There isn’t anything real special about this fight, take out Jin first with
     your best non-fire attack (like Getsu-ei) then finish off Takaya with
     whatever.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
            After Strega is defeated you are given a chance to re-form your party
            before the Shadow attacks. You will definitely want Yukari with you
            for this fight, and bringing Junpei isn’t a bad idea either.
    
    --------------------------------------Boss-------------------------------------
       Hanged Man
    
     -Null: Light/Dark
     -Recommended Level: 53
    
     For this battle a Persona with Magarula is highly recommended as Wind is the
     only element in this battle that none of the enemies here nullify. Titania is
     a good choice as she has Mediarama and learns Magarula. (in <P3> she comes
     with it naturally, but in <FES> you have to level her up first) If you are
     playing <FES> and have maxed the Chariot S.Link maxed then Thor is far and
     away the best Persona for this battle. He comes with Vicious Strike, while it
     does have a rather hefty HP cost it can take out all three statues in one hit
     and seriously damage those Devious Mayas as well. Not only that but he also
     nullifies Strike attacks which will protect you from Hanged Man’s Akasha Arts
     and God’s Hand attacks. (While he’s still a good choice in <P3> he’s not
     quite as all-powerful as he is in <FES> mainly because he learns Gigantic
     Fist instead of Vicious Strike, which is only a single target attack and
     doesn’t do as much damage as Vicious Strike. His immunity to Strike attacks
     is still handy to have around though.)
    
     At the start of the battle Hanged Man will be hovering above the Battle and
     you won’t be able to target him. To bring him down you have to destroy the
     three statues that are under him. The left Statue nullifies Fire and uses
     Agilao. The middle Statue nullifies Ice and uses Bufula. The right Statue
     nullifies Electricity and uses Zionga. They don’t have a lot of HP, so
     Magarula should take them out quickly.
    
     When all three Statues are destroyed Hanged Man will fall. (Note that he‘s
     counted as Down after he falls, so you can hit him with an All-Out Attack if
     there aren‘t any Devious Mayas around.) When he is on the ground you will
     finally be able to target him. He uses some pretty nasty Strike attacks like
     Akasha Arts and God’s Hand, so be ready with Mediarama. He can also summon
     Devious Mayas, (by the way, the Official Strategy Guide is mistaken here in
     that the Devious Mayas do NOT have a weakness to Electricity. They do still
     nullify Ice, though.) and when he summons three of them he will use
     Armed & Ready, which on their next turn will cause the Devious Mayas to
     use Last Resort, killing themselves. (and you too, most likely)
    
     Getting rid of those Devious Mayas as soon as Hanged Man summons them should
     be you top priority. A Mind-Charged Magarula will likely be your best friend
     in accomplishing this.
    
     Eventually Hanged Man will resummon those three statues and return to
     hovering above the battle. You are going to have to destroy those statues
     again to continue the assault on Hanged Man.
    
     This will be a lengthy battle, but as long as you can quickly get rid of
     those Statues/Devious Mayas you should be able to outlast him.

             behind enemy lines and if you get discovered you will be EXECUTED!
             You won’t be able to escape because the entrance is being covered, so
             you are going to have to hide until they leave. They start by
             circling counter-clockwise around the big rock you’re standing next
             to, so move to the right side of the rock. After a while they will
             start looking in the other direction, so move to the left side of the
             rock. Eventually they will decide to split up and when they do go
             into the little recess in the rock with the waterfall. There you will
             be given the option to hide in there. Do so and you will be able to
             wait there until they give up and leave. (Personally I think it’s
             more amusing to get yourself executed, you should try it at least
             once.)
    
     -11/20: Well, that was fun but it’s back to the grind... Starting tomorrow.
             In <FES> you can go on a walk with Ken tonight.
    
     -11/21: There’s a lecture today in both versions.
    
     -11/22: The home shopping program is today, they are offering a Shoes of Bane
             and five Mega Proteins for 79,800 Yen. In <FES> be sure to talk to
             Junpei today and tell him “If you help her.” It would seem that
             something is happening at Tartarus, so form a party and head out.
             Junpei will be unavailable for the upcoming battle. My only
             recommendation is having Koromaru for his resistances, Yukari for
             healing and having your best attacker for... attacking. 
    
    --------------------------------------Boss-------------------------------------
       Chidori
    
     -Drain: Fire, Null: Light/Dark
     -Recommended Level: 58
    
     For this battle you will want a Persona with Fire protection, as Agi skills
     are her most common attack. She can use Mamudoon, so a persona with Darkness
     protection is also recommended. Arahabaki is a good choice as it Nullifies
     Fire and is resistant to Darkness, but to get Arahabaki you’ll have to have
     maxed the Hermit Social Link first. If you can’t/won’t use Arahabaki then the
     next best Persona to use is Incubus, which nullifies both Fire and Darkness.
     (even though it is about 20 levels behind Arahabaki...)
    
     There’s not much to say about this battle, she mostly uses Agilao but she can
     do Mind Charge then Maragidyne. She doesn’t have a lot of HP but she does
     have a skill called Spring of Life, which regenerates around 90 of her HP
     every turn. Just hit her with your best non-fire attacks and she shouldn’t
     cause too many problems.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
             Junpei’s Persona will evolve to Trismegistus after the battle.
    
     -11/24: From today until the 27th the entire day will be spent on Career Day.

             Social Link will be established as well.

     -1/7: In <FES> you can go on a walk with Aigis tonight.
    
     -1/8: The world may be about to be destroyed, but you still have to go to

            of Tartarus.
    
            The final area, Floors 255-263 will open up tonight. Climb up to the
            258th Floor, where you will run into an old friend.
    
    --------------------------------------Boss-------------------------------------
       Jin
    
     -Repel: Fire/Dark, Null: Light
     -Recommended Level: 74
    
     This battle is interesting in that Jin can throw everything including the
     kitchen sink at you. Ailments, physical attacks, mid-level multi-target
     elemental skills, (mid-level... huh?) -Dyne level single target spells, Hama,
     and Mudo skills are all available to him.
    
     I've noticed that for some reason if you bring Mitsuru along he does nothing
     but use Maragion and Agidyne over and over. So if you bring a party of
     Junpei, Koromaru, and Mitsuru and set a fire-immune persona yourself all you
     have to is concentrate on keeping Mitsuru alive while letting Junpei and
     Koromaru beat down Jin.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
            After Jin is gone continue to climb up Tartarus and on floor 262 you
            will run into another old friend.
    
    --------------------------------------Boss-------------------------------------
       Takaya
    
     -Repel: Light, Null: Dark
     -Recommended Level: 74
    
     For all his talk about being stronger he's almost exactly like he was when
     you fought him back in November. In fact, the only change I noticed was that
     he has a bit more HP and he uses Megidola instead of Megido after a Mind
     Charge. Just use a Persona that doesn't have any elemental weakness and beat
     him down with your best attacks and he shouldn't give you any problems. You
     could even cast Makarakarn every turn then watch as Takaya kills himself with
     his own reflected magic.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
            After Takaya is dealt with there’s nothing to stop you from reaching
            the roof of Tartarus and the final boss of Persona 3.
    
    --------------------------------------Boss-------------------------------------
       Nyx Avatar
    
     -Recommended Level: 75
    
     Well, this is it, the final boss, and she has no less than fourteen (!)
     different forms standing between you and the ending. Although each form
     doesn't have a lot of HP, they do add up, making this one of the lengthiest
     battles in the game. Don't be surprised if you have to burn a Precious Egg or
     a Soma or two as you make your way through her various forms. One thing I
     should mention here is that all of Nyx Avatar’s forms will get two turns in
     a row.
    
     At a bare minimum I would recommend having the Horus and Rafael Personae for
     this battle. Both Personae will learn Mediarahan and have no elemental
     weaknesses. A leveled up Horus is immune to both Light and Darkness, and
     Rafael comes with Null Charm, which can save you from a lot of headaches. If
     you happen to have a Tome of the Void (Heart Item from Abbadon) you can just
     equip that and not worry about Null Charm or Null Rage. Having a Persona that
     knows Amrita is also recommended.
    
      -Arcana: Fool
      -Null: Light/Dark
    
     This form, the only Fool Arcana enemy in the whole game, does absolutely
     nothing. Don’t waste SP by setting everybody’s Tactics to Conserve SP and
     beat on her with Physical attacks until she switches forms.
    
      -Arcana: Magician
      -Drain: Fire, Null: Light/Dark
    
     This form will use all types of fire attacks from Agi to Maragidyne and can
     erase fire protection with Fire Break.
    
      -Arcana: Priestess
      -Drain: Ice, Null: Light/Dark
    
     This form will use all types of ice attacks from Bufu to Mabufudyne and can
     erase ice protection with Ice Break.
    
      -Arcana: Empress
      -Drain: Wind, Null: Light/Dark
    
     This form will use all types of wind attacks from Garu to Magarudyne and can
     erase wind protection with Wind Break.
    
      -Arcana: Emperor
      -Drain: Elec, Null: Light/Dark
    
     This form will use all types of electric attacks from Zio to Maziodyne and
     can erase electricity protection with Elec Break.
    
      -Arcana: Hierophant
      -Repel: Light/Dark, Null: Strike
    
     She starts out this form by using Rebellion to increase everyone’s critical
     hit rate and blasting you with physical attacks like Vile Assault and Fatal
     End.
    
      -Arcana: Lovers
      -Null: Wind/Light/Dark
    
     Make sure you have Rafael set because she will try to charm you with Marin
     Karin and Holy Arrow. She can also Panic you, but it’s nothing a Me Patra Gem
     can’t fix.
    
      -Arcana: Chariot
      -Null: Slash/Strike/Pierce/Light/Dark
    
     This form uses God’s Hand and Heat Wave that have been augmented with Power
     Charge. She nullifies all physical attacks, but she also takes more damage
     than usual from elemental magic.
    
      -Arcana: Justice
      -Null: Fire/Ice/Light/Dark
    
     This form mostly uses Hamaon and Mahama against you.
    
      -Arcana: Hermit
      -Null: Wind/Light/Dark
    
     She will use Mudoon and Mamudoon here, but she can also set up a Tetrakarn or
     Makarakarn barrier here as well.
    
      -Arcana: Fortune
      -Null: Fire/Ice/Elec/Wind/Light/Dark
    
     This form uses all types of elemental magic against you. She also nullifies
     all element types, so use physical attacks here.
    
      -Arcana: Strength
      -Null: Slash/Strike/Pierce/Light/Dark
    
     The last form was a magic user and now we get a physical attacker. She uses
     Deathbound and Tempest Slash that have been augmented with Power Charge and
     Rakunda.
    
      -Arcana: Hanged Man
      -Null: Light/Dark, Strong: Slash/Strike/Pierce
    
     Almost there. She uses Mind Charge and Megidola, so be sure to keep your HP
     up at all times. This form can use Mudoon, so be ready for it.
    
      -Arcana: Death
      -Null: Light/Dark, Strong: all except Almighty
    
     Okay, now she's serious. Not only does this form have four times as much HP
     as the previous forms, but she also takes less damage from whatever you throw
     at it as well.
    
     This form mainly attacks with elemental magic, and can use break skills to
     erase any immunities you might have. She can also use a skill called Moonless
     Gown which repels all attacks including Almighty and doesn‘t break after a
     single hit like Tetrakarn/Makarakarn does. If she sets up Moonless Gown your
     only choice is to set everyone’s Tactics to Stand By and wait until she lifts
     it. When her HP get low she starts using Night Queen, which is a lot like the
     Celestial Ray skill in DDS because it does a lot of Almighty and has a chance
     to inflict a random ailment.
    
     As long as the Protagonist can keep from being Charmed/Enraged you should be
     able to handle Night Queen. If you have Raphael set and a Ring of Serenity
     equipped you will be able to avoid getting charmed/enraged, then you can
     concentrate on healing and curing Ailments while your party members finish
     off Nyx.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
            After the Death form of Nyx Avatar is beaten you get to the final
            final Boss of the game. This battle is simple, just wait until your HP
            fills back up then use Great Seal to end the battle.
    
            After all that it's time for the Epilogue. You can go around town if
            you wish, or just head back to the Dorm and go to bed. In <FES> you
            can also see epilogues of every Social Link that you maxed in the
            game. Do the same the following day and the ending will finally kick
            in.
    
    -----------------------------------New Cycle-----------------------------------
    
     Just like in previous MegaTen games, after the ending has finished you will
     be able to make a New Cycle Save. When you load up this New Cycle save you
     will start the game over again with a few benefits that carry over from your
     previous game.
    
     -The Protagonist's stats, levels and equipment will carry over into the New
      Cycle.
    
     -Your Personae don't carry over, but your Persona Compendium will. (when it
      becomes available on May 10th)
    
     -Any restricted Personae that you have unlocked (Either through Elizabeth‘s
      Requests or through Maxed Social Links) will remain unlocked throughout any
      subsequent play throughs.
    
     -For some reason your allies’ Levels and Equipment do NOT carry over.
      Unfortunately this means that whatever equipment your allies had at the
      end of the game are gone forever, so be aware of that.
    
     -Your Money and equipment inventory will carry over, but your usable items do
      not.
    
     -During the April 9th events Yukari won't give the Protagonist a Short
      Sword and he will just use whatever weapon he had during the final battle.
      (another little bit of useless trivia is that is that on your first time
      through the game the Protagonist isn't wearing a SEES Armband during the
      Cowardly Maya battle, while on subsequent play throughs he is)
    
     -Your Social Links do reset unfortunately. However, If you maxed out a Social
      Link on a previous play through then you will still be able to fuse the
      ultimate persona of that Arcana. You just won’t get the experience bonus
      from having a Rank 10 S.Link.
    
     -If you had unlocked Monad Block in the previous game (meaning you didn’t
      chicken out on New Years Eve and get the alternate ending) it will be
      available from the start of the game.
    
     -Elizabeth’s Request #55 will be unlocked, which will open up a
      super-powerful optional boss fight.

     -Drain: Fire, Null: Wind/Light/Dark, Weak: Pierce
     -Recommended Level: 4
    
     As long as you’ve found/bought a bow before the battle and had the
     Protagonist equip it before the battle this should be easy. Since they are
     weak to pierce knock them down with your bow then do an All-Out Attack. The
     only problem you might have is if they decide to pick on Junpei with their
     Garu skills, but the battle should be short enough so this shouldn’t become
     an issue.

       Dancing Hand x 3
    
     -Arcana: Magician
     -Null: Light/Dark, Strong: Elements, Weak: Strike
     -Recommended Level: 5
    
     Hopefully you’ve found an Apsaras In your travels so far so you can use the
     Cadenza combination (Orpheus + Apsaras) as it will be invaluable in this
     fight. These guys can be a problem, as they can use every type of element
     against you, and their magic hurts. If all three use Magaru on the same turn
     you will probably die. (and Junpei will definitely die) 
    
     This is the first battle where you really need to control your enemies’
     actions by keeping them down on the ground. Start by using Orpheus’ Bash to
     knock them down but do NOT initiate an All-Out Attack, instead relent and use
     the extra turn to heal or do another attack. This way at least two of the
     Hands should be wasting their turns getting up. If anyone gets in trouble
     then use Cadenza to heal.

       Rampage Drive
    
     -Arcana: Chariot
     -Repel: Strike, Null: Slash/Pierce/Light/Dark, Strong: Fire
     -Recommended Level: 6
    
     This can be a really difficult battle, as not only is it immune to all types
     of physical attacks, but it also doesn’t have any weaknesses for you to
     exploit either. Add to that the fact that its Assault Dive can kill you in
     one hit and this will be your biggest challenge yet.
    
     As for Persona you will want an Ara Mitama, (you can acquire one by fusing
     Pixie and Angel) as it will help protect you from its Assault Dive.
     Unfortunately Ara Mitama’s offensive capacity leaves much to be desired in
     this battle, (The only offensive skills it learns naturally are Bash, which
     it repels, and Agi, which it is resistant to) so might want to risk switching
     to Apsaras or something with elemental magic that Rampage Drive is not
     resistant to.
    
     This battle is really just a slugfest, Use the Cadenza combination for
     healing, Set Yukari’s Tactics to Heal/Support if you need it, hit it with
     your best magic and hope it doesn’t one-hit kill you.
    
     One last thing, I hope you’ve got some Revival Beads handy, as you will need
     them.

     -Recommended Level: 10
    
     For this fight I would recommend whipping up a Yomotsu Shikome by fusing that
     Ara Mitama you used in the Rampage Drive fight with another Angel. Other than
     that there isn’t much to say about this fight, use Yomotsu Shikome to Bufu
     them down and All-Out Attack or heal as necessary, and they shouldn’t give
     you too many problems.

     -Arcana: Empress
     -Null: Wind/Light/Dark
     -Recommended Level: 12
    
     Before this battle level up an Apsaras until she learns Posmudi, then fuse
     her with a Nekomata. In <P3> the result is an Omoikane with Posmudi. In <P3>
     Omoikane has a resistance to Wind and having Posmudi is invaluable for this
     fight. It doesn’t quite work out that way in <FES>, since the fusion tables
     have been switched around and instead of an Omoikane you get an Alp. This
     actually works out quite well for you, since Alp has a resistance to wind
     while in <FES> Omoikane does not. It is VERY difficult to keep Junpei alive
     through this fight. In fact it might be a better idea to just leave him back
     at the lobby and fight this battle a man down.
    
     Set Yukari’s Tactics to Heal/Support, as she will be useless offensively in
     this battle. You’ll likely have to rely on Akihiko to do most of the damage
     in this battle, so be sure to keep him above 100 HP at all times. It mostly
     pounds you with (Ma)garula, but it will occasionally throw in a Poison Mist,
     which can poison the entire party. If anyone get poisoned then immediately
     use Posmudi to cure it. (Yukari will occasionally chip in a Dis-Poison of her
     own, but don‘t count on it.) This will be a lengthy battle, but as long a you
     can keep everyone free of poison and Akihiko above 100 HP you should be able
     to outlast it.

     -Arcana: Emperor
     -Null: Ice/Light/Dark, Weak: Elec, Strong: Slash/Strike/Pierce
     -Recommended Level: 16
    
     These guys will always get the first turn in this battle, which they will use
     to cast Tarukaja on themselves. (And they will recast it when it wears off)
     This makes all of their attacks pretty painful, and if they use Kill Rush
     they can kill you in one hit.
    
     Make sure you have Akihiko and that his tactics are set to Knock Down. Hit
     them with electricity (Which, oddly enough, does only single digit damage,
     much less than elements that they are not “weak” to) to knock them down and
     All-Out Attack them. If you are feeling paranoid you may want to set a
     Persona that protects against Strike (Kill Rush) and have them waste their
     turns getting up.

     -Recommended Level: 18
    
     A good Persona for this battle is Fortuna, as she’s resistant to Wind. You
     can make one by fusing a Yomotsu Shikome with a Valkyrie.
    
     For the most part he will use Garudyne and Magarula that have been boosted
     with Mind Charge. He will occasionally use Kill Rush as well. He can also use
     Hama, so have some Revival Beads handy in case he gets lucky.
    
     This is another good battle to leave Junpei behind, as his survivability is
     highly suspect in this battle. (Jeez, just how many of these wind-using
     bosses are there anyways?) Be sure to set Yukari’s Tactics to Heal/Support as
     well. Akihiko should know Tarunda by now which should be a big help. (if he
     decides to cast it... Try setting his Tactics to Heal/Support to encourage
     him.)
    
     Other than that, just chip away with elemental magic while keeping your HP up
     and you should come out on top. If you happen to have mid-level elemental
     magic use that to speed up the process.

     -Arcana: Strength
     -Repel: Strike, Null: Fire/Light/Dark, Weak: Wind, Strong: Elec
     -Recommended Level: 24
    
     You want to have Yukari in the party and have her Tactics set to Knock Down.
     The strategy for this fight is to simply knock them down with wind attacks
     and either All-Out Attack or have them waste their turn getting up. They can
     kill you in one hit with their Gigantic Fist attack, so watch out for that.

     -Recommended Level: 26
    
     As you can see, the only way to really damage this guy is with Strike or Wind
     attacks. He uses a lot of Electric attacks, so Yukari will likely more of a
     hindrance than a help in this battle. I would suggest having both Junpei and
     Akihiko in your party, as they can both use Strike attacks, (and Akihiko
     resists Electric attacks to boot) then bringing along Mitsuru in for healing.
     I would suggest Kusi Mitama as your Persona, as it knows wind attacks and is
     resistant to electricity. 
    
     Like I said, it mainly attacks with Zionga and Mazionga, but it can also
     poison you with Poison Mist. Be ready to use a Dis-Poison if anyone gets
     poisoned or hit it with Garula if no one needs healing. Set Mitsuru’s Tactics
     to Heal/Support and try to get Akihiko to cast Tarunda on it to make your
     life easier.

     -Drain: Ice, Null: Light/Dark, Weak: Fire, Strong: Slash/Strike/Pierce
     -Recommended Level: 30
    
     For this battle you want a Persona that has fire attacks but not a weakness
     to ice. They can use Ice Break, which erases a Persona’s immunity to ice, so
     don’t worry too much about setting a Persona that is immune to Ice. I would
     recommend Lamia, As she starts with Agilao and is resistant to Ice. You can
     make one by fusing Oberon and Take-Minakata. Since both Junpei and Koromaru
     have fire attacks they should also be included in this battle and have their
     Tactics set to Knock Down.
    
     They can use Mind Charge which will make their Mabufula attacks very painful,
     but since you should have three characters who can exploit their weaknesses
     this battle shouldn’t cause you too many problems.

       Natural Dancer
    
     -Arcana: Lovers
     -Null: Wind/Light/Dark, Strong: Fire/Elec
     -Recommended Level: 33
    
     You know, I can’t help thinking that Atlus intentionally designed this boss
     to make you want to pitch your controller across the room.
    
     First off, the only way to damage them is with physical attacks or ice.
     Unfortunately they can also use Tetrakarn, which will repel physical attacks,
     (and unlike the shield skills in DDS it will stay up until they are broken)
     so you are pretty much forced to use ice against them. (unless you are
     willing to attack and break the shield and eat a reflected attack) They also
     love to pound you with both Garudyne and Magarudyne. But the real aggravation
     comes from when they use Sexy Dance, which can charm the entire party.
     There’s nothing worse than having your entire party charmed and having to sit
     helplessly while they heal up Natural Dancer and kill their own party
     members. (actually, having only The Protagonist get charmed while the other
     members do nothing to help while you go on a rampage is probably worse...)
    
     That being said there is actually a simple solution to this battle: fight it
     solo. Since it only attacks with Garu skills, if you set a Wind-nullifying
     Persona like Kusi Mitama or Clotho they won’t be able to damage you. Plus,
     since Kusi Mitama has no healing skills, nor are there any allies for you to
     attack, if you if get charmed then The Protagonist will just stand there and
     do nothing until it wears off. (and if you happen to have a Narcissist’s
     Flower (Heart Item from Narcissist) equipped you don’t even have to worry
     about being charmed) The only problem is when it uses Tetrakarn, your only
     option is to break it by attacking and eating the damage from the reflected
     attack, so make sure you keep your HP above 100 just in case.
    
     I’ve received a couple of emails stating that they actually can attack with a
     normal physical attack, they just do it very VERY infrequently. As long as
     your HP doesn’t drop below 100 you shouldn’t have too many problems. 
    
     Unfortunately, it looks like they can also use Hamaon as well. They very
     rarely use it (I personally have never seen them use it, although I’ve
     received reports from others where they practically spam it on them) but when
     they do it can definitely mess things up. Unfortunately there isn’t much you
     can do about it when they do use it, as the only Persona that nullifies Wind
     and has protection from Light is Nandi and that’s a level 39 Persona.
     Personally I wouldn’t recommend going crazy grinding to get a Persona that
     only marginally protects you from an attack that they only rarely use
     anyways. If it bothers you just buy a Homunculus or two from the Antique Shop
     before the battle and that should cover you.

     -Recommended Level: 38
    
     Bring along Mitsuru and have her Tactics set to Knock Down. The other two
     characters don’t really matter so just bring whoever. Just knock them down
     with ice and All-Out Attack them or heal and have them waste their turn
     getting up.

     -Null: Strike/Light/Dark, Strong: Slash/Pierce/Fire
     -Recommended Level: 44
    
     In many ways I think this is one of the most difficult battles in the game.
    
     The problem with this battle is that it just causes way too much damage. Its
     Maragidyne can easily chop off 250 HP of damage, and if it uses Megidola it
     can take off another 300. Add to that it can use Hamaon and this makes for
     one daunting opponent.
    
     This battle is almost impossible without Mediarama, as it’s incredibly
     difficult to keep up with its damage output without it. Saki Mitama does
     learn Mediarama (Although you have to level it up first) and it has a
     resistance to Fire, so it’s probably the best choice for this battle. (It
     doesn’t have any Light resistance, though. Hopefully you have acquired some
     Homunculus items during your travels.) Using Tarunda and/or Marakukaja is
     also highly recommended. Parvati learns Marakukaja, and if you fuse her with
     a Leanan Sidhe (who also learns Mediarama, by the way) you get a Saki Mitama.
     Yukari will learn Mediarama when she reaches level 43, but she can be rather
     unreliable on using that instead of plain Diarama.
    
     Since both Junpei and Koromaru have some form of protection from Fire they
     are good choices for this battle. (Even though Koromaru is kibble if he gets
     hit with Hamaon) Unfortunately their attacks won’t be that effective here, so
     I would only take one of them to this battle. Mitsuru has a weakness to fire
     which is a very bad thing here, so leave her at home. Akihiko knows Tarunda,
     which is helpful... When he decides to use it.
    
     You’ll probably be spending most of this battle casting Mediarama, and even
     with that and Yukari’s Tactics set to Heal/Support it might not be enough to
     keep up with it. Don’t be afraid to use a Magic Mirror to take some of the
     heat off. (so to speak) a Magic Mirror will protect you from Maragidyne and
     Hamaon, but it won’t stop a Megidola.

       Hell Knight x 3
    
     -Arcana: Emperor
     -Drain: Elec, Null: Light/Dark, Strong: Fire/Ice/Wind
     -Recommended Level: 48
    
     Make sure you acquire Koumokuten for this fight because of his resistance to
     both Strike and Electricity, which just so happens to be what this boss uses.
     I would also recommend having Kikuri-Hime in reserve for this fight because
     she knows Mediarama. (Don’t use Saki Mitama as it is weak to their Heat Wave
     attack)
    
     Physical attacks are the way to go in this battle. You want to bring your two
     best physical attackers along with Mitsuru for healing. Note they can and do
     use Elec Break, so Akihiko won’t have as big an advantage in this battle as
     he normally would. (Still, they will waste a turn on casting it, so I guess
     it still is helpful) The only characters I would recommend against are Yukari
     and Aigis because of their weakness to Electricity.
    
     With all three knights attacking it can be hard to keep up with them, So
     reducing their numbers should be your first priority. Set Mitsuru’s Tactics
     to Heal/Support and the other two to Assign Target and have them concentrate
     on a single enemy. If you can survive until one of them is dead this battle
     becomes a whole lot easier. Watch out if one of them uses Mind Charge, as on
     the next turn they will use Maziodyne, so make sure everyone is fully healed.

       Mythical Gigas
    
     -Arcana: Strength
     -Repel: Strike, Drain: Fire, Null: Pierce/Light/Dark, Strong: Slash
     -Recommended Level: 50
    
     First there was a boss that needed physical attacks, and now one that
     requires magic to beat.
    
     I would suggest you use Dionysus as your Persona, as his resistance to Slash
     attacks will help to keep you alive and his Magic Charge and (if you level
     him up) Ziodyne will be quite powerful here. You’ll want to bring your best
     magic users here, which is likely Yukari, Mitsuru, and Akihiko. Unfortunately
     these guys can have a difficult time surviving the Mythical Gigas’ assault,
     (particularly Yukari) so you might want to consider subbing in Ken for
     someone here.
    
     This guy is a pretty brutal physical attacker. He uses Deathbound and Vile
     Assault that have been augmented with Power Charge and Marakunda. If you have
     any Dekunda Gems, now’s the time to use them! Also consider using an Attack
     Mirror after he use Power Charge, because if he uses Deathbound the next turn
     it will bounce back at him, hitting him four times at around 90 HP a hit.
    
     Other than that make sure you have a dedicated healer while you pound him
     with your best non-fire magic attacks and you should be able to outlast him.

     -Arcana: Justice
     -Drain: Elec, Null: Light/Dark, Strong: Slash/Strike/Pierce/Fire
     -Recommended Level: 55
    
     Ice attacks are the best way to fight these guys, as Ice causes more damage
     to them than any other type. For this reason bringing along Mitsuru is highly
     recommended. Yukari is the only other character that can really damage them,
     but unfortunately they like to use electricity so it can be risky using her.
     Everyone else is going to have a hard time damaging these guys so just bring
     whoever.
    
     A Persona with Bufudyne and protection from electricity would be ideal for
     this fight. Unfortunately, no such Persona exists, so you’re either going to
     have to try to fuse one or just use Loki or Laksmi which will learn Bufudyne
     and doesn’t have a weakness to electricity. There’s not much more to say
     about this fight, as it’s a pretty standard boss fight. Use the Assign Target
     Tactic to thin their numbers while keeping yourself healed up.

       Stasis Giant x 3
    
     -Arcana: Justice
     -Null: Slash/Light/Dark, Strong: Strike/Pierce/Fire/Wind
     -Recommended Level: 58
    
     This can be a brutal fight, as they can throw some pretty painful attacks
     like Mighty Swing, Fatal End, Deathbound, and Tempest Slash at you. Not only
     that, but they can also use Power Charge to increase the pain.
    
     In <P3> if you set Narashima, Kali, or Chernobog as your Persona the only way
     they can hurt you is with Double Fangs, which they do infrequently and is
     nowhere near as powerful as their other attacks. Unfortunately the only one
     of these Persona that has any way of damaging the enemy is Chernobog, which
     learns Megidola if you level him up, as the others can only learn Slash
     attacks. Unfortunately you probably won’t have enough SP for more than a few
     casting of Megidola. Still, you could give the Protagonist a spear, turn Rush
     on... And then wait a half-hour until he finishes poking them to death with
     his pointed stick.
    
     You can’t depend on the pointed-stick strategy in <FES> however, because
     instead of Twin Fangs they use Gigantic Fist, a rather nasty strike attack.
     Unless you somehow manage to fuse Null Strike onto a Chernobog you probably
     won’t live long enough to kill them with just your weapon. You’ll need to be
     a bit more daring here, so I would recommend the Dionysus Persona here. He
     has a resistance to both Slashing and Strike attacks and his Ziodyne is quite
     effective here. Make sure everyone focuses on one Giant to thin their numbers
     as quickly as possible and don’t be afraid to use Matarunda and/or Marakukaja
     as well.

     -Arcana: Hermit
     -Null: Light/Dark, Strong: all except Slash
     -Recommended Level: 60
    
     This guy throws a lot of Hama skills at you, so having a Persona that
     nullifies Light is essential for this fight. Ken is a good person to bring
     along as he nullifies Light, and even if he can’t cause a lot of damage he
     still makes for a good healer. I would suggest Mitsuru and Junpei as your
     other two characters, but as long as you don’t bring Koromaru it doesn’t
     really matter who you bring.
    
     He can do Mind Charge and Megido, so be ready to heal up if he uses Mind
     Charge. Other than that it’s simply a matter of having a lot of Revival Beads
     to revive whoever falls victim to his Hama skills and then Slashing him to
     death.

       Royal Dancer x 3
    
     -Arcana: Lovers
     -Null: Light/Dark
     -Recommended Level: 62
    
     The thing that makes this battle so annoying is that they spend almost the
     entire time trying to poison, panic, and charm your party. This is quite
     annoying (especially given the unreliability of your allies’ A.I. in curing
     ailments) and potentially lethal if the Protagonist gets charmed. They do
     use Primal Force, but they do it rather infrequently.
    
     Keeping the protagonist from getting charmed is vital for this battle. To do
     this you can either set Raphael as your Persona or equip Narcissist’s
     Flowers. As long as you can keep the Protagonist from getting charmed and
     your supply of ailment-curing items holds out this battle should more of an
     annoyance than a problem.

     Okay, now I KNOW Atlus intentionally designed this boss to make you want to
     pitch your controller across the room.
    
     As you can see, the only way to harm it is with physical attacks. So what
     does it do? It casts Tetrakarn to make itself invulnerable to everything
     except Almighty! Not only that, but it then spends EVERY FREAKING TURN
     casting either Megidola or Megidolaon! So while you can’t even touch it, it
     will gladly annihilate your party without you being to do a damn thing about
     it!
    
     *Gasp*... *Pant*... I’m alright... I’m okay... Anyway, for this battle you
     need a Persona that can nullify the type of damage of the Protagonist’s
     weapon (i.e. if your Protagonist uses Swords then have Kali or Chernobog) and
     a Persona with Mediarama. (or Mediarahan if you can manage it) Yukari is a
     good choice, because in this battle she’s more likely than not to use
     Mediarama. Round out your party with your two best physical attackers.
    
     For this battle it pretty much going to be you and Yukari using Mediarama
     every turn and relying on the other two party members to kill it. If it sets
     up a Tetrakarn barrier then switch to Kali/Chernobog to break the shield.
    
     A couple of people have reported that if you have Yukari, Mitsuru, and
     Koromaru (in <P3> that is, in <FES> it’s Junpei that learns Fire Break) at
     a high enough level so they know Elemental Break skills (Yukari learns Wind
     Break and Koromaru/Junpei learns Fire Break at level 60, While Mitsuru
     learns Ice Break at Level 61) they will use them to erase Reckoning Dice’s
     protection to that element. If they do this be sure to take the opportunity
     to pound it with -Dyne level Elemental spells. (you could also cast Break
     skills yourself if you have the chance, but most of your turns will probably
     be spent healing)

       Noble Seeker x 3
    
     -Arcana: Hermit
     -Null: Light/Dark, Strong: Fire/Ice/Elec/Wind
     -Recommended Level: 67
    
     For this battle you want a Persona that doesn’t have any elemental
     weaknesses. If you’ve maxed out the Strength Social Link you can use
     Siegfried, as he doesn’t have any elemental weaknesses along with some
     pretty wicked physical attacks which makes him the best Persona for this
     battle. If you can’t use Siegfried then any Persona that doesn’t have any
     elemental weaknesses like Gabriel or Daisoujou will do.
    
     In keeping with the “no elemental weaknesses” theme for this battle you want
     to have both Ken and Koromaru in your party. Every other character has some
     form of weakness to elemental magic, but it can’t be helped.
    
     They mostly attack with single target -Dyne level elemental spells, although
     they will use the multi-target variations of these spells occasionally. If
     they manage to hit someone’s weakness they will follow it up with a Vorpal
     Blade. Since there should be three party members without any elemental
     weaknesses nor do they specifically target these weaknesses this shouldn’t be
     too much of a factor as you beat them down with physical attacks.

       Carnal Snake x 3
    
     -Arcana: Lovers
     -Null: Light/Dark, Strong: Fire/Elec/Wind
     -Recommended Level: 69
    
     You want a Persona that nullifies Darkness for this battle, and a resistance
     (not Null/Repel/Drain) to Fire couldn’t hurt either. Succubus is probably the
     best choice for this battle.
    
     Bringing along Koromaru is recommended, more for his immunity to Darkness
     than his fire protection. Along with Koromaru you should bring in a healer
     and your best physical attacker. I wouldn’t recommend using Mitsuru or Ken
     because of their weaknesses.
    
     They will immediately use Fire Break to erase the protection of anyone who
     Nullifies/Repels/Drains Fire, and they will recast it when it wears off. This
     won’t effect a resistance to Fire. They mostly bombard you with Agidyne and
     Maragidyne, but they also like to hit you with Mudoon. Watch out though,
     because they do use Tetrakarn, and can use super-powered versions of Life
     Drain (which instead of sucking up a measly 35 HP siphons off around 200 HP)
     and Spirit Drain. (which takes off about 150 SP)

       World Balance
    
     -Arcana: Justice
     -Null: Light/Dark, Strong: Slash/Strike/Pierce
     -Recommended Level: 71
    
     This is definitely my least favorite battle in the entire game.
    
     For this battle a Persona that protects against both Light and Darkness and
     has no elemental weaknesses is required. If your Sun Social Link is maxed out
     and you make a Horus it will learn Repel Dark and naturally nullifies Light.
     It also has no elemental weaknesses, which makes it my only suggestion for
     this battle.
    
     This battle starts out alright, only using single or multi-target -Dyne level
     elemental spells. When you knock off about half of it’s HP however it starts
     getting nasty. It uses either Mahamaon or Mamudoon every turn or it will
     sometimes throw in a Megidola or a Megidolaon. When it only has a fraction of
     HP left it will actually start targeting your character’s elemental
     weaknesses with elemental spells, and then follow up with Megidolaon for a
     lethal one-two punch. If nobody (alive) has any elemental weaknesses, then it
     will merely content itself with casting Megidolaon.
    
     As you can see, trying to keep your party alive through this fight is
     incredibly difficult, as even if they make it through all those Mahamaons and
     Mamudoons unharmed they will still have to deal with that elemental
     spell/Megidolaon combo. Ken and Koromaru have the best chance of making it
     through to the end, and they don’t have any elemental weaknesses to exploit
     either. Try to keep your allies alive as best you can because their help is
     invaluable in that last little push to get rid of it before it slaughters you
     with Megidolaons.
    
     Mullet2000 has informed me that if you use a Magic Mirror or cast Makarakarn
     then World Balance will do nothing except casting Megidolaon over and over.
     This is actually beneficial during the second half of the battle as you don’t
     have to worry about half your party getting killed with Mahamaon/Mamudoon or
     that elemental spell/Megidolaon combo. With Mediarahan along with Marakukaja
     and/or Tarunda you should be able to keep ahead of it while your allies kill
     it with elemental attacks.

       Fierce Cyclops x 3
    
     -Arcana: Hanged Man
     -Null: Elec/Light/Dark, Strong: Slash/Strike/Fire
     -Recommended Level: 72
    
     Considering what a pain the previous couple of guardians were this is almost
     a restful battle. They don’t use Megidolaon or Mamudoon, just physical
     attacks like Power Charged Primal Force and Vorpal Blade with the occasional
     Mazionga for spice. They can use Last Resort when their HP gets low, but
     that’s about the only thing special about them.
    
     The only way to damage these guys are with Piercing, Ice, or Wind attacks,
     everything else just causes too little damage to be effective. Give the
     Protagonist a spear and either the Chernobog (which nullifies their Vorpal
     Blade) or Seiten Taisei (which nullifies their Primal Force, and he learns
     the Spear Master skill as well) Personae. Using Mitsuru and Ken here is
     highly recommended, although bringing in Yukari or Aigis is a little risky
     because of their tendency to use Mazionga.
    
     As long as you have a dedicated healer you should be able to survive what
     they can throw at you. If one or more them uses Power Charge you might want
     to consider setting up a Tetrakarn shield or use an Attack Mirror to protect
     yourself. Make sure you set the other characters to Assign Target so they
     concentrate on a single enemy, this helps to thin their ranks and to
     discourage them using multiple Last Resorts against you.

       Jotun of Grief
    
     -Arcana: Hanged Man
     -Drain: all except Pierce/Almighty
     -Recommended Level: 73
    
     As you can see, the only way to damage this bondage freak is with piercing
     attacks. This makes a party of Aigis, Ken and Yukari the most logical choice
     for this battle. Mitsuru learns Ice Break and Koromaru (in <P3>) or Junpei
     (in <FES>) learns Fire Break, so they can work here if one the above is too
     low a level to be effective. Do be ready with some Dis-Rages or have some
     Rings of Serenity equipped if you do bring Mitsuru or Koromaru/Junpei,
     however, so they won’t undo all your work if they become enraged. Make sure
     to have the Protagonist wield a spear or bow as well.
    
     He loves to try enrage you with Infuriate and Stagnant Air. To protect
     yourself you will need a Persona with the Null Rage skill or a Ring of
     Serenity. In <P3> you can use just Uriel as your Persona as he comes with
     Null Rage. In <FES> however Uriel’s skills have changed and he doesn’t have
     Null Rage. The only Persona in <FES> that has Null Rage is Oumitsunu, and
     then only if you level him up first. A better Idea is to have everyone equip
     a Ring of Serenity (Heart Item from Fortuna) to prevent anybody from becoming
     enraged. Still, it might be worth it to let Ken or Aigis become Enraged, as
     it will increase their damage output by quite a bit. If you bring Mitsuru or
     Koromaru with you make sure they are wearing a Ring of Serenity.
    
     He does use Primal Force and Megidolaon, so be sure to keep any enraged
     characters at max HP. As long as you can keep the Protagonist from becoming
     enraged you shouldn’t have too many problems. When you get him down to a
     sliver of health left, however, he starts using Mind Charge then Megidolaon,
     so try to finish him off before he can get it off.

              option to look under his paw. Do so and you’ll find Akinari’s Pen.

                              ============================
    =========================|Elizabeth’s Requests [006.2]|========================
                              ============================
    
     On April 30th you will receive a call from Elizabeth asking you to come and
     see her in the Velvet Room. The next time you go to the Velvet Room you will
     be able to take requests from Elizabeth. These requests are mini fetch-quests
     that require you to bring her a specific item (Or in some cases, a Persona)
     in exchange for a reward.
    
    -Note: Enemies will only drop request items if the request is open.
           Furthermore, enemies that have normal item drops (like, for
           example, the golden shadows) will never drop their normal items
           while a request is open. 
    
     You can have up to three requests open at one time. If for any reason you
     want to do a different request you will have to cancel one of your open
     requests. If you cancel a request you will have to pay some Yen in a fine,
     but you will be able to go back and reopen the request later if you want.
    
     This section will list the requests along with when they are made available,
     when its deadline is, (if applicable) where you can find the object of the
     request and how to get it, and what the reward for completing the request is.
    
    -WARNING: For some reason the deadlines in <FES> have been moved up one day.
              So instead of requests being due on the day before the full moon
              like they were in <P3> the deadline is two days before the full
              moon. Be aware of that as you schedule your time.
    
                                      -+-+-+-+-+-
    
     -1: Retrieve 1 Beetle Shell
          -Available: April 30th  -Deadline: May 8th (P3), May 7th (FES)
         This one is simple enough, just kill a Grave Beetle on floors 5-15 and it
         should drop a Beetle Shell. Use wind on them to make them die quicker.
         Unfortunately, Grave Beetles can sometimes be hard to find. Remember that
         Grave Beetles attack alone, so when climbing Tartarus look for the tiny
         shadows and those should lead to a Grave Beetle battle.
          -Reward: 12,000 Yen

          Floor 65-68 like Elizabeth tells you, but on floors 68, 71, 81, and 84.
          They show up in treasure chests on those floors, but they only have a
          10% chance of appearing on that floor. (Man, it’s like searching for a

          refuse to drink it and he’ll give you a Powerful Drug instead. Take the
          drug back to Elizabeth to complete the request.

           -Available: Complete Request #15
          Pyro Jack comes with Maragi, and if you fuse it with Chimera you get a
          Vetala. I’ve noticed that Vetala can be a bit stubborn about inheriting
          elemental magic, so it may take a few tries until you get a Vetala with
          Maragi. (Remember that you can cancel out of a fusion if you don’t get
          the skills you want.)

          once he does fuse him with an Ose to get an Orthrus. In <FES> this
          request is a lot simpler as Rakshasa has Dodge Slash naturally, so just

          To make an Alice you need to do a Cross Spread fusion with Lilim, Pixie,
          Nata Taishi, and Narcissus. Unfortunately, none of these Personae have
          Megido, and getting Megido on one of them is a royal pain. The easiest
          way to do this is to take Decarabia (which learns Megido naturally) and
          fuse it with a Principality (in <P3>) or an Oberon (in <FES>) to get a
          Nata Taishi. (He doesn’t seem to want to inherit Megido, but keep at it
          and he’ll come around eventually) Now do a Cross Spread fusion with that
          Nata Taishi, Pixie, Lilim, and Narcissus and after two hours of
          canceling out of the fusion result screen you’ll have an Alice with
          Megido.

          You can create Lilith with a Cross Spread fusion of Lilim, Vetala,
          Incubus, and Succubus. Level up a Gabriel until she is level 64, at
          which point she learns Mabufudyne. (This is in <P3>, In <FES> Gabriel’s
          higher base level means that she doesn’t learn Mabufudyne until level
          71) Next fuse Gabriel with Samael (in <P3>) or an Ara Mitama (in <FES>
          to get a Succubus with Mabufudyne. Fuse this Succubus with Lilim,
          Vetala, and Incubus to get a Lilith with Mabufudyne. I should note that
          both Succubus and Lilith can be pretty stubborn about inheriting
          Mabufudyne, so it may take a while to do this.

           -Available: Complete Request #51
          *Whew* Finally a Persona request that doesn’t require that you to spend
          an hour messing around with the fusion screen. Unfortunately you can’t
          just depend on your S.Links to bring him up to the required level (in
          <P3> at least) so you’ll be forced to grind with him. You can make this
          a lot easier by Putting Growth 3 on Loki. In <P3> this is as simple as
          getting a Daisoujou, which learns Growth 3 naturally, and fusing this
          Daisoujou in a Triangle Spread fusion with Ubellurus and Atropos to get
          Loki. With a Growth 3 enhanced Loki it shouldn’t take you too long to
          level him up. (Especially if you take him into Monad) Thanks to the
          boost in his base level in <FES> fusing Growth 3 is unnecessary as he
          can reach level 63 with just the experience bonus he gets from a maxed
          Fool Social Link. (In <FES> you can fuse a Loki with Yaksini, Ragnda,
          and Titania)

           -Available: January 1st
          The button that Elizabeth wants is currently in the possession of
          The Reaper, who you’ve no doubt run into during you travels through
          Tartarus. Finding The Reaper is pretty simple - just do nothing. More
          specifically, you need to spend around 10-15 minutes on any one level of
          Tartarus and he’ll show up and try to kill you. You can speed up its
          appearance by selecting Cursed cards during Shuffle Time after a battle.

       The Reaper
    
     -Arcana: Death
     -Null: Light/Dark, Strong: Slash/Strike/Pierce/Fire/Ice/Elec/Wind
     -Recommended Level: 80
    
     Unless you’re after the button for Elizabeth’s request you should not even
     bother with this guy and escape while you can. The Reaper is a nasty
     opponent, he can use can use the all target -Dyne level skills for all four
     elements along with Light and Darkness attacks as well. Not only that, but
     his attacks can do over 700 HP worth of damage, so it will be difficult even
     surviving against him, let alone beating this guy.
    
     I would recommend the Horus Persona here because it is immune to Light and
     Darkness (when leveled up) and has Mediarahan. (Its lack of elemental
     weaknesses is also a plus) As long as you’re strong enough to not get killed
     in one hit you should be able keep your head above water with Mediarahan.
     Thankfully The Reaper doesn’t have an overwhelming amount of HP so you should
     be able to concentrate on keeping everyone alive while your allies kill him.
    
     Or, you could just do an Armageddon combination (Lucifer/Helel + Satan) to
     wipe it out in one hit. It’s your call.

    ||||||||||||||||||||||||Frequently Asked Questions [007]|||||||||||||||||||||||
    ———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————
    
    -Q: What does FES stand for?
     A: Festival.
    
    -Q: When should I go to Tartarus?
     A: Whenever you want. There’s no penalty or reward for going practically
        every other day or just waiting for the night before a Full Moon for one
        huge grind-fest. I would advise against going to Tartarus more than twice
        a week, though, as evenings are the best times to raise your Charm,
        Courage, and Academics.
    
    -Q: What’s up with those Gold Shadows? Every time I try to fight one they run
        away!
     A: Annoying aren’t they? If those Gold shadows spot you they will run away,
        and if you try to corner them they will simply disappear, and even if you
        do manage to get into battle there’s a chance that they will escape right
        off the bat. You have to approach from directly behind them or they’ll
        spot you. When you finally manage to encounter one you still have to fight
        the damn thing. They will nullify all elemental magic, and have a weakness
        to one type of physical damage. (Which type they are weak to is random and
        changes every time you encounter one of these guys) I would recommend
        having a party where you will be able to use all three Physical attack
        types (So have Yukari/Aigis/Ken in the first slot, Akihiko/Shinjiro in the
        second, and Mitsuru/Junpei in the final slot) and make sure that when you
        get into battle you set your allies’ Tactics to “Conserve SP” to keep them
        from using magic against them. With this setup it’s just a matter of
        finding their weakness before they flee.
    
    -Q: What is Monad? How do I get to it?
     A: Monad is a ten level mini-dungeon where you can find the strongest shadows
        (and therefore the most exp. when you beat them) and best equipment in the
        game. To unlock Monad in <P3> you simply have to make it Floor 254 of
        Tatarus. (In other words the highest you can get to before January 31st)
        In <FES>, however, you not only have to make it to Floor 254 but also
        complete Elizabeth’s Request #53. (Which means beating the Reaper... Ugh.)
        Thankfully in <FES> Monad will be also unlocked if you start a new cycle.
        (No such luck in <P3> though)
    
    -Q: That Girl at the Shrine wants “something fizzy,” but I can’t figure out
        what she wants!
     A: That girl is looking for a Mad Bull drink, which is sold at the vending
        machines in the Dorms. This is a bit annoying since entering the Dorms
        advances time to the Evening, so you’ll either need to have the foresight
        to get a Mad Bull beforehand or waste a day in getting her a Mad Bull.
    
    -Q: I just fused a Persona and it has this big red heart next to its name.
        What does it mean when that happens?
     A: When you fuse certain Personae there’s a chance (about one-third, I
        believe) that it will have “something within itself” (as Igor puts it)
        signified by that heart icon on their status screen. When you level up
        this persona enough to learn all their skills you will get a message that
        the Persona want to give you an item, accept the item and it will give you
        the item. (Note that if the Persona gets enough experience from their
        S.Link to learn all their skills at once they won’t give you their Heart
        Item right there, but rather when the next time they level up.)
    
    -Q: That Dying Young Man at the Shrine keeps asking for his Red Fountain Pen,
        but I have no idea where to look for it!
     A: Yeah, establishing an S.Link with the Dying Young Man at the Naganaki
        Shrine is rather annoying, not only because the solution is so obscure but
        also because it requires a specific series of events to happen beforehand.
        First you have to talk to the Dying Young Man and have him tell you about
        his pen. Next you have to wait until Koromaru Joins SEES on August 8th.
        Talk to Koromaru in the Dorms and if the Dying Man has told you about his
        pen there will be an option to check under Koromaru’s paw, do so and
        you’ll find the Red Fountain Pen. (Why he’s got it I have no idea) Take
        the Pen to the Dying Young Man and you’ll be able to establish the Sun
        S.Link.
    
    -Q: Gah! I’ve been going out with a girl for a while now and her Social Link
        hasn’t ranked up at all! What’s going on?
     A: Social Links with female classmates simply take longer to rank up than
        other Social Links. It can sometimes take up to five dates before the
        Social Link ranks up. For this you always want to have a Persona of the
        same Arcana as the Social Link, and when you go out with them on a
        Sunday/Holiday always be sure to give them a gift.
    
    -Q: Is there anything special about Orpheus? Is it all right to Fuse/Dismiss
        him?
     A: Strictly speaking, yes. There are a few Personae that require an Orpheus
        in their fusion recipes. (namely Susano-o and Messiah) However, these
        Personae won’t become available until very late in the game and you can
        always just summon a fresh Orpheus from the Persona Compendium when it’s
        time for the fusion. The Orpheus that you start the game with has no
        special properties and can be fused/dismissed at your discretion. I would
        recommend, however, that you leave Orpheus alone at least until the
        Persona Compendium becomes available on May 10th, simply because Orpheus
        is a part of the Cadenza combination, which is the best way to heal your
        party in the first part of the game before Media spells become available
        and summoning it from the compendium is the only viable way to get a
        replacement.
    
    -Q: I got the highest score on an exam and when I talked to Mitsuru in the
        evening she wouldn’t give me my Card Set! What’s going on?
     A: Mitsuru will only give you a Card Set if you talk to her in the halls of
        Gekkoukan High during the After School period. She won’t give it to you if
        you talk to her during the evening in the Dorm.
    
    -Q: Will I need the original Persona 3 to play FES?
     A: No. FES is a standalone game and doesn’t require the original P3 game in
        any way. This confusion seems to have arisen from the Japanese release of
        FES which had an “Append” version that required the original P3 Disk to
        play. The version of FES released in North America is the full version.
    
     -Q: <P3> or <FES>?
      A: Although they’re both fantastic games and there are few aspects of <P3>
         that I preferred over <FES> the extra Personae, improved Journey, and
         The addition of The Answer makes <FES> the superior Persona 3 experience
         by far.
    
     -Q: OMG Mara? LOL!
      A: Yes, Mara. Shut up.
