How to Defeat Glasya Labolas

To defeat this demon, the player will have to utilize its weakness. As shown in the overview, Glasya Labolas has a clear weakness, which is Electric. Luckily for the player, at the very least, two of their four usable characters will be able to dish out electric damage, specifically Zio. That is Nahobino himself as well as Yoko Hiromine, the guest character.

By zapping Glasya Labolas each round with Zio, Nahobino and Yoko will allow the player’s side to take two extra actions, which will make this fight a lot easier. The player can also make sure they have an additional demon who can use electric before the fight. At this point in the game, there are not many, however, if possible, the player can probably acquire Mandrake, who can also use Zio. If not, that is fine as well.

When it comes to Yuzuru, he can’t make use of electric attacks, however, he has a skill that is very likely to always land a critical attack, which also grants players an extra action per round, and that is Gram Slice. The player should also make use of Yuzuru’s skill Rakunada, which can lower the enemy’s defense, making it perfect to strike harder.

If needed, the player should make use of Dia, a skill possessed by Yoko that can heal an ally.

With that, the player should manage to take down this first boss without too much trouble.

Rewards for Beating Glasya-Labolas
