How to beat the Reaper in Persona 5 Royal

There are many deadly foes in Persona 5 Royal, some of which are optional encounters as well. One such encounter is the Reaper, an immensely powerful foe who stalks Mementos and can appear whenever the Phantom Thieves take too long on any given floor.

Players take control of the Phantom Thieves in Persona 5 Royal, a JRPG developed by Atlus and published by Sony. In between adventures, players live like normal students while focusing on stealing the distorted desires of humanity.

Persona 5 Royal transformed the Reaper from a crippling flaw that made killing it relatively easy during Flu Season in Persona 5 into a lethal foe. This flaw was removed for Persona 5 Royal, so the Reaper is as dangerous as ever.

Although the Reaper is level 85, a level 60 party can defeat it as long as players are well-prepared and adequately equipped. The Reaper has no weaknesses, resistances, or immunities. Despite this feeling counterintuitive.

It is common for the Reaper to attack the party's current weaknesses with elemental attacks, but Makarakarn can be used to stop this. Using this attack will cause the Reaper to fall back on its powerful attack, 'Megidolaeon,' but it will always charge before using it to boost its damage.

The ability to keep up the offensive while keeping the party alive is fairly easy with regular healing (preferably through the spell 'Mediarahan' for maximum effect).

In light of the Reaper's ambush, the 'Thermopylae' skill can be used at the same time to boost the attack, defense, and agility of the entire party. As a result of the Reaper's lack of immunity and resistance, it can be attacked without issue by each party member.

It's possible to get the Divine Pillar accessory from the Reaper, which will reduce all damage taken by characters equipped with it. You'll get the 'A Unique Rebel' trophy on your first defeat of the Reaper. On October 21, 2022, Persona 5 Royal will be available on PC and Xbox Series X/S.
