One of the highlights of the Genshin Impact version 2.5 update is the arrival of a new, challenging weekly boss—the Magatsu Mitake Narukami no Mikoto, or the Raiden Shogun boss for short. This boss is a deadly variation of the playable character, the Raiden Shogun.
At first glance, she looks intimidating with her giant hands and sword. But fret not, because you can defeat this boss faster than you can say her official name.

How to beat the Raiden Shogun boss in Genshin Impact
The Raiden Shogun boss is a terrifying weekly Electro boss in Genshin. Her Baleful Shadowlord form allows her to pull off stronger attacks and gain an Electro shield that greatly increases her RES. But by following these tips and tricks, you’ll be able to destroy her with ease.
- Fighting her Baleful Shadowlord form can be annoying, especially since her attacks cover almost an entire area, making it difficult to dodge. It is possible, however, to defeat the Raiden Shogun boss without her entering the Baleful Shadowlord state. Stun the Magatsu Mitake Narukami no Mikoto by destroying her special Illusion or the Magatsu Electroculus and then use your most powerful DPS characters to throw their elemental skills and bursts at her.
- If you can’t avoid fighting her Baleful Shadowlord form, prepare for The Final Calamity attack. This specific attack lets her perform a massive horizontal slash that freezes time and instantly kills any characters that are hit and unprotected by the shield generated from the Flowers of Remembrance orb. Deck out your best Electro character and use elemental attacks to charge the orb and generate the shield before the Raiden Shogun boss executes The Final Calamity.
- Since she is an Electro weekly boss, the most effective elemental reactions against her shield are Superconduct and Overload. You can pull these reactions by bringing some trusty Pyro and Cryo characters to your party.
The best party to beat the Raiden Shogun boss
Ranged characters are highly recommended to beat the Magatsu Mitake Narukami no Mikoto. Here are some suggested characters to add to your party:
|Main DPS||Ganyu, Hu Tao, Klee, Kamisato Ayaka|
|Sub DPS||Shenhe, Xiangling, Yae Miko|
|Sub DPS/Support||Raiden Shogun|
