Powerful Shadows are a special kind of enemy found in Persona 5 Strikers’ Jails and once you defeat one, you gain the ability to fuse it in the Velvet Room and once you defeat all of them, you gain the ability to confront the game’s first super boss: The Reaper. Even the weakest of these Powerful Shadows unlocks a fairly powerful Persona Fusion so they’re fairly worth the trouble of seeking them out. This guide is going to help you find, defeat, and fuse King Frost.
How to Find, Beat, and Fuse King Frost
Finding King Frost
You can find King Frost in the Southwest-most corner of the Arboretum location in the Sapporo Jail. King Frost will be a larger Shadow with a bazooka and, like all Powerful Shadows, will be glowing with a blue lightning aura. It will not move in a patrol route so you’re free to approach it how you want and when you want. You’ll also want to be certain you have the request “Make the Way for the Frozen King” checked off before you go to take King Frost on.
Beating King Frost
King Frost, as you might expect, resists Ice attacks and is weak against Fire attacks but the one thing you might want to watch out for is the fact that it’s also strong against Bless attacks so keep that in mind when you’re assaulting it. It’s also able to buff its own defense as well as debuff the defense of an AOE as well so you may want to protect yourself against that or be ready to counter both of those abilities. For this battle, you’re going to need to have Joker be, as usual, the most flexible member of your party as you’ll want to protect yourself against Ice attacks while being able to chip away at King’s guard quickly enough to get off as many All-Out Attacks as possible.
As for the rest of your party, you’re probably going to want to have Morgana, Panther, and Queen in your party: Panther for her Fire attacks and the rest for their ability to heal well and not fall quickly to Ice attacks. As always, you’ll want to make sure you’re stocked up with the latest equipment and plenty of items for the fight specifically. This will be a battle of attrition, like most Powerful Shadow battles, so keep pegging away and know that this battle isn’t going to be a landslide.
Fusing King Frost
Once you beat King Frost in battle, you get a key item called the Giant Snow Crystal. Having this item unlocks your ability to fuse King Frost in the Velvet Room. In order to fuse King Frost, Joker will need to be level 63 and have access to Jack-o’-Lantern and Jack Frost, both at least level 40. Getting a King Frost is pretty great, especially when you’re up against an enemy with a weakness against Ice, so be sure to take advantage of this fusion when you get the chance.
