JIN-DIE

About[edit | edit source]

JIN-DIE is the second mini-boss you encounter in Let It Die. She is vulnerable to slashing damage and can drop War Ensemble metals.

Meijin Advice Note[edit | edit source]

In the fight with JIN-DIE, you wanna be dashing and dodgin the bullets! Don't miss the chance after it fires a powerful shot, and counterattack at point blank range! It's better to use a close range weapon over projectile weapons here.

Locations[edit | edit source]

JIN-DIE can be found on Floor 6 Moka-Magome, Floor 16 Kaga, Floor 26 Shimemeno, and Floor 38 Ebata.

JIN-DIE will only appear on each floor once per tower run. She remains defeated until you go back to the waiting room, which resets the boss encounters.

Floor 6[edit | edit source]

Attack Patterns[edit | edit source]

The first JIN-DIE you meet has 4 different main attacks:

  • She fires a stream of non-homing heads at you. One head on its own isn't particularly strong, but they stagger and can easily stun-lock you into taking multiple hits.
  • She fires three homing heads at you in quick succession. These can be avoided by dashing to the side or hiding behind an object. Dodge rolling isn't a good idea here, as it leaves you susceptible to any heads fired after the one you dodged.
  • She fires a slow, heavy grenade head that explodes either after a short time on the ground, or on contact with you.
  • She fires a devastating "gore beam" at you. This attack has a short build-up as JIN-DIE gathers arcs of red energy around her and tracks your position. It's extremely dangerous, but its direction is locked once JIN-DIE starts firing, leaving her vulnerable for around 5 seconds.

JIN-DIE can also teleport. Before teleporting, she will stretch upward on her mountain of heads, then collapse with a surprised "Oh!" and disappear in a pink cloud. If you come in contact with this pink cloud, you will be stunned for a brief moment.

Boss Strategy[edit | edit source]

This JIN-DIE starts her fight on the bottom floor of her boss room. During this phase, simply hide behind pillars, then dash out to run behind her and hit her. At low health, she will teleport to the upper floor of the boss room and stay there until death. There are fewer intact pillars to hide behind on the upper floor, but there's a pretty safe spot right next to where the stairs end, against the western wall. One of her teleport points sits just outside this spot; wait until she teleports there and run out to finish her off.

Floor 16[edit | edit source]

Attack Patterns[edit | edit source]

On this floor JIN-DIE doesn't gain any new attacks, but she will use her stronger attacks more frequently. Keep a sharp eye out for the gore beam animation; she will use it often, sometimes even back to back.

Rewards[edit | edit source]

On this floor JIN-DIE has 3 different rewards. These rewards are:

  • Reward 1: Kill Coins
  • Reward 2: War Ensemble Green Metal
  • Reward 3: Equipment (This is very rare)

Boss Strategy[edit | edit source]

This version of JIN-DIE can be pretty difficult, thanks to her large, broken-up boss room. A hit by any of her attacks on the upper floor can push you over an edge down to the lower floor, resulting in heavy fall damage, and her teleport points are so far apart that it's near impossible to run to her. However, she has a huge blind spot thanks to the building on the westernmost island. If you stand on the red box behind it, she becomes nearly unable to hit you, and with a long enough weapon (or a ranged weapon), you can hit her with little risk any time she teleports onto the building. Just watch for explosive heads, as they can knock you to the bottom floor if they don't fall off the island before exploding.

At half health, JIN-DIE will teleport to the bottom floor. Baiting her into wasting a gore beam is a good strategy down here; either get it stuck on a pillar, or sprint to the side as she charges it so it'll miss, then attack.

At low health, she'll teleport to the top floor again. Make your way back to the box on the western island and finish her off.

Glitches[edit | edit source]

There is a potential bug in this fight that can cause JIN-DIE to vanish, leaving you trapped on this floor. See Bugs for more details.

Floor 26[edit | edit source]

Attack Patterns[edit | edit source]

This version of JIN-DIE gains 2 new attacks:

  • She throws around 6-10 explosive heads around her. These heads explode after a couple of seconds, covering a wide area with fire and causing damage to anyone near JIN-DIE.
  • She shoots homing electrified heads toward you. Before using this attack, JIN-DIE will generate a large amount of blue electricity around her. These heads will stun you and cause damage on contact, and they will explode in a sphere of electricity upon hitting any obstacle. This attack was also used by Colonel Jackson.

Rewards[edit | edit source]

On this floor JIN-DIE has ? different rewards. These rewards are:

  • Reward 1: Kill Coins
  • Reward 2: War Ensemble Black Metal
  •  ?

Boss Strategy[edit | edit source]

On this floor, JIN-DIE appears arena with 4 pillars near each corner and a few shops around the edges of the area. You can use the pillars to hide from JIN-DIE as she charges her gore beam. She will occasionally teleport on top of a pillar or shop; when she does this, you can either shoot her, or hide behind one of the other pillars until she teleports to the ground again.

With an appropriate fighter, weapons, and equipment, this JIN-DIE is relatively easy to fight. Bring a max-level 4 Star fighter of some sort, such as a striker, equipped with Irons, Longswords, and Hammers. The Iron's rage move can blind her for a couple of seconds, preventing her from moving or teleporting, which will allow you to hurt her with either the Longsword or the Iron Hammer.

You can also use Stingshrooms combined with Transparungus or Slowmungus, but they're not required at all for this fight.
