Jotun of Grief is a Shadow in the series.

Appearances[]

Profile[]

It resembles a white, obese humanoid creature with six arms, with a pair of arms on its chest, one on the regular position and the other on its back. Its arms are chained by handcuffs, with the middle pair of arms chained to its legs. It is also riding on a white rocking horse with a steel mask and steel rockers. Just like other Hanged Man Shadows, its mask is upside down.

Persona 3[]

Jotun of Grief is the final guardian encountered in Tartarus. Its Arcana is the Hanged Man and is located on 252F in the Adamah Block. Upon defeating this boss, the Judgement Social Link will reach Rank 9. Tartarus will remain blocked at 254F until the game's (playable) final day.

Jotun of Grief is designed to exploit an unprepared party, as it absorbs all attacks other than Pierce and Almighty. If any party member uses a default Physical attack that isn't Pierce-based, the enemy's strategy of Stagnant Air + Infuriate would have that enraged party member attacking (healing) it twice.

It's recommended to bring three allies that use Pierce attacks; Yukari Takeba, Ken Amada and Aigis. The protagonist should use a Spear or Bow weapon with +Resist Rage or equip a Persona with Null Rage. Allowing other party members to become Enraged can be a double-edged sword; damage output is increased and they get to attack twice per turn, but their defense stat will be significantly lower. Therefore, the protagonist should be immune to Rage in order to heal and revive party members. Buffs and debuffs are also particularly helpful here since the boss can use any of the three "Ma-" debuff moves.

Upon reaching low health, Jotun of Grief radically changes its strategy by casting Mind Charge and Megidolaon continuously until it is killed or healed above the critical threshold. Note that it will also no longer cast Infuriate during this phase.

Alternatively, it is possible and advisable to fight it using any character with a "break" type spell, followed up by the according "dyne" spell. Also bring along a character who is proficient in buff and debuffs and any method necessary to counter the boss enraging spell, may that be an item or curing spell.

Persona 4[]

Jotun of Grief appears on Paths 5 and 6 of Yomotsu Hirasaka within the Midnight Channel. It will attack with Wind skills and replenish its HP with Life Leech. When defeated, it may drop Ripper Horse. Selling 10 Ripper Horses at the TV extension of Daidara will unlock the Futsuno Mitama for the protagonist.

In Golden, it will attack with God's Hand and Megido, and occasionally buff itself and allies with Revolution.

Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth[]

Jotun of Grief appears on Blocks 4 and 5 of the Theater District. It attacks with Physical skills, and can lower the party's defense. When defeated, it drops Jotun Cache and Jotun Rocker. Jotun Cache is used to create the Misericorde* for the P5 hero, the Warlord Hammer* for Shinjiro Aragaki, the Chromatic Orb* for Morgana, the Mithril Club* for the P4 hero and Junpei Iori, and Tomoe's Bow* for Yukari Takeba. Jotun Rocker is used to create the Megaton Rod* for Ryuji Sakamoto, the 7-Star Claw* for Teddie, and the Papal Robe unisex armor.
