How to Defeat Kazuma Kiryu in Yakuza: Like a Dragon

Just like every boss in the game, Kazuma Kiryu has also its own weakness. Kazuma Kiryu is weak against cold attacks. Before you fight Kazuma Kiryu, make sure that you have a good line up in your party. It is recommended to bring Ichiban Kasuga (Hero), Joon-Gi Han (Hitman), Saeko Mukouda (Miss Kyaba), and Eri Kitamaki (Idol) in the fight.

Fighting Kiryu is a bit long as there will be 4 phases during the match. At the start of the fight, Kiryu will be using Brawler style which will have the basic physical attack, then it will be followed by Rush style which is focused on high-speed offense, third will be the Beast style that will allow the enemy to use the objects around, and the last is the Dragon of Dojima type where Kiryu is allowed to perform parry, repel, and tiger drop.

Taking Kazuma Kiryu’s head will be possible with the help of Joon-Gi Han’s poison attack that will damage the enemy over time. As always, you also need to lower the defense of the enemy using BUrning Turtle Crush and Meromero Typhoon. Lowering his defense will make the poison more effective.

As mentioned above, Kiryu is weak against Cold attacks. Using Miss Kyaba’s Sparkling Cannon surely bring a lot of damage to the enemy. Once Kiryu switched to his Dragon of Dojima style, it is highly recommended to use magic attacks.
