The Tartarus bosses are almost notorious for being as tough or tougher than the Full Moon bosses in Persona 3 Portable. In this article, I will be taking a look at how to beat the Golden Beetle, one of the first of many mini-bosses scattered throughout Tartarus. This Golden Beetle guide will have tips, level details, and weaknesses for the boss.

Golden Beetle Guide for Persona 3 Portable
Where and When
The Golden Beetle is met on floor 47 of Tartarus. There is a group of three to fight with a choice of which SEES members to bring to battle.
This boss is a Level 19 enemy with 240 HP each, a relatively low total all things considered. Its only notable stat is endurance but the rest are normal.
Strengths and Weaknesses
The Golden Beetle can be tough due to its resistances, it nulls light and dark attacks as well as the Ice element. It is strong against Slash, Pierce, and Strike attacks while ONLY being weak to Electricity.
Akihiko Sanada is pretty key to winning this as electricity is his main element, the MC can back him up with Electric using personas to dole out further damage to the enemies.
While I don’t know why, it is commonly known that these beetles take extra damage to fire and wind-type attacks so both Junpei with his Agi and Yukari with her Garu attacks will be useful on the offensive end.
Essentially if you exploit these weaknesses then this fight might be one of the easiest of the Tartarus bunch.
