** ''[[UpdatedRerelease The Royal]]'' adds a new BonusBoss, [[spoiler: Lavenza, completely whole. Once again, the boss has an arsenal of Personas to use, but while she initially uses weak Personas like she did as the Twins, this time she starts using severe level attacks right off the bat, as well as stat buffs and debuffs, status effects, and even reflect breakers. In addition, her Personas all have multiple resistances, which change depending on the Persona, she switches to stronger Personas as her health lowers and she also occasionally uses the chainsaw from the fusion accidents. Oh, and think you're safe from All Out Attacks since she's just one body this time, nope! If you take your time dealing damage, she still instantly knocks everyone down, splits into the Twins, and kills everyone with an All Out Attack, complete with her own portrait.]]

** The BonusBoss, [[spoiler:the Velvet Twins]]. Like the previous {{Bonus Boss}}es, they have an arsenal of Personas to take you on with and will switch between them throughout the battle, and they will take advantage of any weakness they find. Unlike the previous fights however, the Twins fight together as a DualBoss, sharing their Persona arsenal between them, and since the fight as a team, that means they can also use Baton Pass to further exploit weaknesses, and even use All Out Attack.

** Cognitive Wakaba Isshiki makes for an impressive ClimaxBoss for a number of reasons. For once, you're not fighting the Shadow of the Palace you're in; rather, you're fighting a [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever giant sphinx version]] of Futaba's mother. After what appears to be a HopelessBossFight as it resists all of your party's attacks, Futaba arrives on the scene and accepts the truth of her mother's death before awakening her Persona and summoning an '''effing ballista''' so the Phantom Thieves can shoot the cognition out of the sky and beat her down! At the end of the fight, Futaba [[ShutUpHannibal tells the cognition off]] and lets Joker deal the finishing blow, causing her to tumble down the pyramid to her doom. And the cherry on top? This is one of only a couple of boss fights in the game where [[AwesomeMusic/Persona5 "Will Power"]] is playing throughout.

** The first boss fight against [[StarterVillain Suguru Kamoshida's Shadow, Asmodeus]], sets up the majority of the fights perfectly. To start off, they ''really'' set this guy up as a [[HateSink major scumbag]] so you don't feel any remorse when you steal his heart. On top of that, each of the founding members of the Phantom Thieves [[ItsPersonal has a different reason for taking him down]][[note]]He made Ren/Akira an outcast at his new school, provoked Ryuji into giving him reason to disband the track team, drove Ann's friend to suicide when she wouldn't sleep with him, and his Shadow had Morgana locked up[[/note]], so you just know bringing him to justice is going to be satisfying. And boy, is it ever! During the fight proper, you have to make sure his [[ItMakesSenseInContext national trophy full of disembodied female legs]] is destroyed so he can't [[HealingFactor heal himself]]. After you do so, you get to call your first Special Order and have one of your party members steal his treasure, the crown on his head. All the while, Kamoshida won't make it easy for you, going so far as to '''spike a volleyball that causes a freakin' explosion''' to try and kill you. Defeating this bastard and watching him confess every sin he's ever made [[CatharsisFactor is simply the most gratifying of joys]], and the boss fight preceding the event wasn't half bad to boot.
