Raiden Shogun Weekly Boss - Recommended Characters

Recommended Characters Overview

Bring An Electro Character

The only way to shield through Raiden Shogun's one-hit attack is to create a shield by destroying the Flowers of Remembrance. It can be destroyed with other attacks, but Electro attacks break it easier.

Shields Will Still Work

Although Shields will not save you from Raiden Shogun's one-hit attack, they are still viable against most of her other attacks. It's better especially if you are not that good at dodging.

Sample Team - High Rarity Example

Raiden Shogun will be able to provide good damage for the whole team. The Electro-focus of the team also helps to get shields faster during the one-hit attack.

Sample Team - Free/Low Rarity

The team will create enough reactions to deal big damage to the team. Kujou Sara can then be used to amplify the team's damage and destroy the flower. However, lack of shield will mean needing to dodge well during the fight.

Raiden Shogun Normal Phase

Melee Range Is Pretty Dangerous

Melee Range Is Pretty Dangerous

Raiden Shogun fights with her sword and she's very effective against. Most of her melee attacks are whole attack strings, meaning it doesn't end with just one hit. Either shield yourself or be ready to dodge through her attacks.

Defeat Illusions To Find The Real Raiden Shogun

Defeat Illusions To Find The Real Raiden Shogun

At one point, Raiden Shogun will create illusions of herself. During this phase, she cannot be attacked until you find her. Having long-range here works well since you can pick off the Illusions from a distance.

If You're Too Far, Raiden Shogun Will Dash To You

If You

Staying from long range isn't a good idea either. Raiden Shogun will dash at you with a big swipe of her sword, dealing big Electro damage. Be prepared to dodge because she can combo this with another string of attacks.

Dodge When Raiden Shogun Creates An Electro Circle

Dodge When Raiden Shogun Creates An Electro Circle

Raiden Shogun will bring down lightning in a circular pattern before she unleashes electro slashes in a wide range. Wait for the Electro circle to fully light up them prepare to dodge once she brings down her arm.

Continuously Attack The Electroculi

The Electroculi will require players to continuously attack it to destroy. It's better to use your Normal Attacks here to quickly destroy it and prevent the attack from activating on you.

Raiden Shogun Enlightened Phase

Destroy Flower To Escape One-Hit Attack

Destroy Flower To Escape One-Hit Attack

The only way to save yourself from Raiden Shogun's one-hit attack is by destroying the Flowers of Remembrance. It will create a shield that will protect you from the attack. Note that shields from other sources cannot tank this.

Pyro Is Great To Remove Her Electro Infusion

Pyro Is Great To Remove Her Electro Infusion

Thanks to Overload's damage, Pyro really does a great job to remove Raiden Shogun's Electro infusion during this phase. Cryo also works but expect no additional damage from Superconduct.
