Shin Megami Tensei was recently finally given an English translation after having been released 22 years ago. Now that gamers are finally able to experience this classic, they may be struggling to make it through the game in an effective way.
Shin Megami Tensei games have pretty much always been known for their difficulty, so this shouldn’t be too much of a surprise. Even so, it can be extremely frustrating to have to fight a boss over and over with no chance at a win in sight.
So let’s go over an easy method to beat nearly every boss in the game. I have named this method the “electrocute method” due to the nature of how it is performed.
First, in order to execute this method you must have a party member that can use any spell in the Zio line of spells. So this can be Zio, Mazio, Zionga, etc. It’s probably better to have a human party member with this spell, but it can also be done with a demon if you’re willing to work a bit harder.
The reason for this is because with a human party member that member can level up on a consistent basis. This is huge in allowing you to be able to keep up with the growing power of bosses throughout the game. Demons don’t level up, so their stats are static from the moment you get them. Because of this you may eventually find yourself unable to perform the electrocute method as the bosses get stronger. You can work around this by getting stronger demons, either through fusion or negotiation, but you’ll have to make sure they still have a Zio spell, which isn’t always easy to do
