vs. Dominique Boss Fight Tips
Boss Has Erratic & Unpredictable Movement
Dominique has one of the most erratic movements in Bloodstained. This boss fight really relies on your skill and how fast you can react to avoid her unpredictable attacks.
Does Moves From Previous Bosses
Dominique will copy some moves from previous bosses. This includes Gebel's ice missiles, Zangetu's flame towers, and Andrealphus's jump & diagonal jump kick.
Dominique Can Be Baited To Do Certain Moves
In this fight, you can bait Dominique to do certain moves. She can be baited to do a crouch attack when you do a crouch attack yourself. It's best to learn what moves you can bait her to do to gain an edge over her in this fight.
Keep Distance To Avoid Grab Attack
At times, Dominique will charge in to grab you for instant damage, and knocking you back. Once she grabs you, you can't dodge away so be sure to keep your distance from her.
Jump Over & Behind When She Summons Ghosts
When Dominique summons a bunch of ghosts, you can jump over them and move behind her to hit her from the back. You can also block them using the Directed Shield.
Dominique Does Light-Based Attacks
Hits With Light Whip
Dominique will use a whip imbued with the light element. She whips her weapon in front of her so dodge away or keep your distance to keep safe.
Summons Light Streams That Home On You
Dominique will also summon several light streams that will home on your location, one after the other. Keep mobile and dodge back so the streams won't hit you.
Powers Up When Eyes Glow
When her eyes light up, she'll enter her next phase, giving her new movesets and attacks to watch out for.
Large Light Beam Attack
When Dominique powers up, she'll summon a large light beam that'll shoot straight forward. Crouch to avoid getting hit by this large beam, or use the Directed Shield directional shard to block this attack!
Summons Dragon From Portal
Dominique will summon a dragon when she opens up a portal. Avoid getting damaged by jumping above the dragon when it swipes and sends flames forward through the ground.
