Boss fights in Persona 5 Tactica can be pretty hard, especially earlier on. So if you don’t come prepared you might be trying a few times to beat them, some of them even have tactics you can use to end the fight very quickly. Here’s our guide on how to beat Ryuji and Haru boss fight in Persona 5 Tactica.

How do you beat Ryuji and Haru boss fight in Persona 5 Tactica

This boss fight in Persona 5 Tactica can be a bit difficult thanks to the amount of enemies you have in the arena, but if you know how to end it pretty quickly you should be good to do this first try. First things first, you’re going to need a good team heading into this fight, primarily focusing on range, my team was Joker, Ann, and Erina, who made this fight an absolute breeze. You can spend time fighting the enemies if you want, but there’s one trick to know that’s genuinely game-changing for the fights against party members in Persona 5 Tactica.

The trick I’m referring to is that you can just destroy the flag and not worry about the rest of the enemies, even the actual boss enemies. This means all you have to do is set up a pretty big damage output on the flag and you’re good to go. There are a couple of ways to do this in this boss fight in Persona 5 Tactica, and I’ve found two myself, but the easiest and most reliable way is to use the barrel on the right-hand side. Joker should be able to reach the right ladder, and from there dash across one platform to be able to hit the barrel below him. After he does this, an enemy will be knocked into the center in a vulnerable state. 

Getting the triple threats

The next step to defeating Ryuji and Haru in Persona 5 Tactica is sending Ann up onto the left platform, and shoot at the vulnerable enemy, while also hitting the enemy next to them. This will trigger retaliation from this enemy type, leaving them in a vulnerable state too. Then move Ann as far up the left-hand side as she can go, then bring Erina up to the top, then get a One More from the enemy you left in a vulnerable state making sure that enemy doesn’t die. With two triple threats, which you can get by moving Erina out of the way of the second downed enemy and using Ann for the triple threat, then moving Erina back down to get the second enemy that’s downed into a triple threat. Once you do this, you should have either defeated the flag or be very close to it.

Doing it this way is pretty precise with knocking enemies using the barrels, but if you’re struggling with the fight, getting through it in the quickest way is probably the best way to go. I hope the explanation made enough sense in written format! But the images are there for you to see the precise locations of the units during this boss fight in Persona 5 Tactica.
