Persona 3[edit | edit source]

Phantom King is a sub-boss found on the 190th floor of Tartarus. It impedes the player's progress and must be beaten to proceed.

Phantom King has two means of attack: either instant kill via its Light spells or pure damage via Mind Charged Megido spells. Bring Ken for this fight, since he has resistance to Light and the ability to heal off any damage dealt by the Megido spells. As the Phantom King also tends to force party members to skip turns with Fear (but, fortunately, doesn't know Ghastly Wail which can kill them), either protect against it, bring a Persona that knows Me Patra or stock up on Me Patra Gems to ward off the ailment. However, since this boss (unlike the 2 preceeding it) is fought as an individual and since it carries no affinities (excluding Light/Dark), the party shouldn't have too much trouble with it. Virus Breath will frequently miss when used, however, the Phantom King is susceptible to the Panic ailment, leaving it open to critical hits from physical attacks.

Phantom King also takes adjusted damages from each affinity, Slash attacks will deal 125% damage, everything else save Almighty will deal 75% damage.

Persona 4[edit | edit source]

Phantom King appears in Worlds 4 and 5 of Magatsu Mandala within the Midnight Channel. After being defeated, it may drop Prime Hide. Selling 4 Prime Hides will unlock the Kehaya weapon for Chie Satonaka in the shop.

In Golden, Phantom King can increase the chances of landing its multi-target Light skill using Stagnant Air. It can also attack with Agidyne, amplified by Fire Boost.
