How To Get Badge of Might

Defeat Certain Bosses With No Damage

By successfully defeating certain bosses without sustaining any damage, you can earn the prestigious achievement "You're Not the Boss of Me" as well as other special rewards. Currently, this accomplishment has only been confirmed for the battle against Benedikta in Caer Norvent.

All Bosses List

May Be Available In Other Dominant Boss Battles

Given that it was available in Benedikta, it may be available in other Dominant battles as well.

Also Available In Replay Mode

You can also earn the Medal of Valor by achieving victory without taking any damage when defeating boss enemies again in the replay mode. It is recommended to challenge them in replay mode when you have enhanced Clive's skill abilities after progressing in the story.

Recommended Guide And Tips

Look Into Your Gear And Difficulty Setting Before Battle

Story Focused And Timely Focus

Timely FocusRing of Timely FocusWhen you are about to get attacked by an enemy, if Clive is able to evade, then the time will become slow and you will be able to see when the Attack will come.
* If you use it together with Ring of Timely Evasion, then the effect will not work.

Change the Difficulty to "Story Focus", and attach the Timely Accessory's Ring of Timely Focus. It is more flexible than Timely Evasion, and counters well in the later Bosses' wide range attacks and consecutive attacks.

Prepare Best Weapons & Accessories And Strength Tonic

To decrease the time of combat, prepare the Best Weapon and Heat Correction Best Accessory. Recommended Accessories are Genji Gloves, Berserker Ring, since they can either increase the power of the critical move or decrease the amount of cool down. Strength Tonic is also very useful, so purchase the max amount that you can.

If Aiming For Trophy, Then Replay At Greatwood


If you are aiming for Trophy, then you will only need to get 1 Medal of Valor. Due to this, challenge the weakest boss out of all, Midnight Raven in the Replay Mode. The leveled up Clive will allow you to easily defeat it without any damage.

If You Want All, Then Defeat Each Boss After Save On 2nd Round

If you are aiming for all of them, then it is recommended to play in Action Focused or Story Focus in New Game +. In Replay Modem it takes a long time to go to Boss Battles, so make sure to save before a Boss Battle so it will be easier to pull when re-challenging.

▶New Game+ - What Do You Keep & Transfer Elements

If You Have The Skills To Beat It In Few Rounds, Then Replay Mode

If it takes too much time to play the Story again, and if you have the skills to defeat it in a few rounds without Damage, then you will not have a problem challenging in Replay Mode.

Badge Of Might Effects

Required To Win Trophies

When you obtain the Medal of Valor for the first time, you will earn the "You're Not the Boss of Me" achievement, which grants a Bronze trophy. If your goal is to achieve full completion and earn the Platinum Trophy, obtaining the Midnight Raven Medal of Valor is necessary.

There Are No Specific Effects

The Medal of Valor holds significance as an item, but it doesn't provide any specific effects. Moreover, acquiring it is not necessary as it doesn't impact the gameplay in any way.
