Warning! If you haven’t been making use of Waning Moon Dance or characters with Hasted skills, Yamata no Orochi is your wake up call. First of all, lets address the main issue: She gets 3 actions a turn. No matter WHAT you do, she’ll most likely wipe the team, stomp on your corpses, and then salt the earth for good measure. Her fight isn’t one that you take head on unless you’re massively over levelled. Thus, the proper way to fight is to open up with Waning Moon Dance on someone with Hasted Dance and pray that she doesn’t use her White-Hot Inferno Breath/Draining Light Talisman. Then, when you’re still protected from most of her attacks, try and either put her to Sleep (a good 75% chance to do so) or Petrify her (risky, at 25%). You could also try your hand at Blinding her, but any attack that she has that would be affected by Blind is rendered null by Waning Moon Dance. Or, for the daring, allow Luka to be captured by Head Bind, with Waning Moon Dance active, he’ll never take damage from Unending Licking. The downside is that she’ll use it 3 times, each hitting 8 times, for 24 messages of ‘Luka took no damage’!, which can get annoying if you don’t have skip text active. For a final warning, Bad Breath, despite not dealing damage, is arguably her deadliest move. One a simple 3 turn cooldown, it can inflict 6 different status ailments, 3 of which will prevent a character from taking their turn. Either stack resists against those 3, or try and lock down Yamata no Orochi before she can use it.
As for damaging her, she’s neither immune to any element nor weak to any element, but Ice is your best bet. Combine this with her 4 different ways to apply Slayer (with Giant giving the strongest, at 200% bonus damage), and you’ll quickly burst though her health. Of course, you could always try to insta-kill her if she falls asleep…
