One of the super bosses in the Labyrinth of Chaos. He is randomly encountered in the Hades bonus floor or as a floor-100 super boss, after encountering the Hades Floor six times.
Descending in a pillar of light, Judgement gazes upon the party. He declares that he’s here to judge this world. He’s capable of summoning a full-power Goddess Ilias.
Upon defeat, Judgement states that he himself has been judged, and disappears.

Well… this fight is among of the harder fights in Paradox Part 2’s LoC for various reasons. Lets address the first issue: Judgement is 100% completely IMMUNE to ALL elemental damage! Judgement can only take damage if the attack has a chaos element with it, or if you are attacking with a Nightmare character from the Collaboration Scenario. There are 2 attacks that any character can learn that have Chaos damage: Nuclear, a Magic Science skill, and Page 99999 of the End, a Grimoire skill. These skills are Nuclear damage and Demise damage respectably. Some LoC weapons also have Skill Use: [Skill] that can allow a way to damage Judgement.
Second issue, alongside the fact that Judgement takes 2 actions a turn, all but one attack of his is auto hit, and only 2 of his attacks target one person. This means that every turn, no matter what, it’s highly likely Judgement will use two AoE instakilling attacks to wipe the front row out. How can you get around this? Well, being an angel, Judgement’s skills are mostly Holy type attacks, and Holy type attacks use mana alongside SP (which enemies completely ignore). Therefore, the number one thing to do is to drain Judgement’s mana, to prevent 3 highly dangerous attacks. Those being: Daystar, nothing needing to be said about that, Ilias Goddess of Creation, which is likely to Ascension everyone in the party while making it nearly impossible to hit Judgement for 4 turns, and All Cancel, the usual dispel that super bosses carry. Upon draining his mana, Judgement has only 4 possible moves out of 10, which, in a perfect world, would be a 60% chance to waste a turn. However, all of his attacks have at least a 3 turn cooldown, which means eventually he will attack with a non-mana using attack. However, since none of his attacks hit more than once, and all of his attacks that inflict Ascension cost mana, having everyone use a deflector making move (Makina’s Electromagnetic Armour or Summoning Vicarious Clara) means it isn’t possible for the user to die, as long as they use it every turn. Then what? Well, either you risk a turn setting up buffs (like right after he uses one of the attacks that don’t need mana), or have a character who can have more than one action a turn. Slimes are good for this, as they can have 3 actions a turn. Or, if you were lucky enough to encounter her, the Queen Mermaid can teach Aqua Pentagram (White Magic, 2 Hit Deflector), allowing one member to make deflectors for another.
Unlike his counterpart, World Breaker, Judgement is easy to lock down once you drain his mana. Still, until that happens, keep on your toes and keep your mind sharp.
If you are fighting him before version 2.30, you can damage Judgement with slayer abilities and attacks, but if it isn’t Human/Angel slayer (Angel Slayer in particular is something only Corrupted Hero can get without finding the Angel Slayer Gem in LoC), which he takes 150% damage from, he will only take 10% damage from other slayers.
