How To Beat Data Xemnas

Employ a Hit and Run Strategy

Employ a Hit And Run Strategy

Xemnas is a very tricky enemy to deal with since he tends to zip around the stage several times. You also cannot juggle him in the air for too long as he can teleport out of your combo! It would be best to use a hit & run strategy to increase your survivability during this boss fight!

Be Patient To Land Hits

Remember to wait for momentary lapses in between his combos to get a few good hits in! This will slowly whittle away at his health. Remember to be patient as this boss will only have a few openings! Don't overextend your combo as Xemnas will punish you with high damage for being too overconfident!

Destroy the Walls Xemnas Creates

At times, Xemnas will teleport around the stage creating walls. He will not attack you while making these. Focus on destroying them as soon as possible as they will damage you if you come into contact with them.

Black Vine Attacks Are Unblockable

Heal After Xemnas' Combos

Make sure to use Heal whenever you can. Xemnas' combos can take out a huge portion of your HP. If you ever start to become low on health, remember to use Heal after blocking or evading a combo in order to restore health and increase survivability!

Bring a Kupo Coin Just In Case

It would also be useful to have a Kupo Coin in your inventory just in case. This item will immediately revive you should you fall in battle, giving you another shot at bringing down this boss!
