Persona 4 Golden Walkthrough

Secret Laboratory

persona_4_golden_secret_lab_entrance

Secret Laboratory is the sixth dungeon in the TV World. It first becomes available around September 16th, and must be completed by October 5th.

Dominating Machine

The first boss battle will take a little navigating to find. You should come across a locked door on B4F. Since you don’t have a key, continue on to B5F.

When you reach B6F, you should find another locked door that needs an ID. Search the chests on this floor until you find a Research Card. Take it to B4F and unlock the previously locked door to find Dominating Machine.

SKILLS

      • Last Resort: Uses all HP to cast Heavy Almighty Damage
      • Power Charge: Doubles the damage of the next Physical attack
      • Herculean Strike: Medium Physical damage on the entire party

STRATEGY

Dominating Machine is a rather simple boss fight. It will use a basic Power Charge – Herculean Strike combo to power up and attack the entire party. Your party should be at a pretty high level by now, so the strike shouldn’t cause too much damage. If a teammate is still at a low level, have them guard before the strike is used.

If you don’t finish it off quick enough, it may use Last Resort when it’s HP is low. This will use up all of Domination Machine’s HP to cast a Heavy Almighty Damage spell. Finish it off before it can do so.

After the battle, open up the chest in the back to get the Leader Card. Use it to open the locked door on B6F.

Shadow Naoto

The final boss fight is located on B9F.

SKILLS

      • Brave Blade: Strong Physical damage to one party member
      • Attack: Basic Physical damage to one party member
      • Bufudyne: Heavy Ice damage to one party member
      • Mute Ray: Deals a small amount of damage and inflicts Silence on one party member.
      • Element Zero: Elemental Resistances will be nullified on the entire party
      • Galgalim Eyes: Inflicts Enervation on one party member, and reduces their HP to 1
      • Maguradyne: Heavy Wind damage to the entire party
      • Heat Riser: Increases Attack, Defense, and Hit/Evasion rates for Shadow Naoto

STRATEGY

This battle is pretty straight forward. Shadow Naoto is a fast Boss with a number of great skills. It can cause both physical and magical damage, increase its stats, and inflict Enervation.

Don’t bother using fire, as Shadow Naoto is resistant to it. Use all other elements and Physical damage to put it down. If you want to counter Naoto’s Heat Riser, bring a party member that can remove stat increases. You can also bring someone that knows their own stat buffs to counter his.

Defeat Shadow Naoto to return to the real world.

Extreme Vessel

After the dungeon has been cleared, return to B9F to find Extreme Vessel.

SKILLS

      • Virus Wave: Inflicts the entire party with Poison
      • Mind Charge: Doubles the damage of the next Magical attack
      • Power Charge: Doubles the damage of the next Physical attack
      • Rebellion: Increases the Critical Hit rate of the user
      • Mabufudyne: Heavy Ice damage to the entire party
      • Maragidyne: Heavy Fire damage to the entire party

STRATEGY

Extreme Vessel is pretty straight forward boss battle. It will try to increase its critical hit rate and double the power of its next magical attack before hitting the entire team with Mabufudyne – Heavy Ice Damage. Don’t bring anyone who is weak to Ice. If your team is still under leveled, you may want to block before it uses the ice attack. It will also attempt to poison the entire party with Virus Wave.

Use Wind damage to knock it down, but don’t do an All-Out Attack. Continue hitting it with Wind and Physical damage while it’s down to do bonus damage.

When the fight ends, check the table for Algernon, a new weapon for Naoto.

Algernon

      • Effect: +5 to all stats
      • Attack: 230
      • Hit: 85

    Seriously, LOVE your IGN Guide!
    But….it only goes up to May 19th….where’s the rest?
    You mention here that it’s a complete guide so…what happened to the rest of it??

    • I didn’t do that day by day walkthrough. I did the abridged walkthrough. Check out those pages. They’re complete and everything.

      I was disappointed as well, but then I decided to help myself to it, so I’m currently working on the day-by-day walkthrough. Since I was puzzled on what to do for a little bit, I went ahead in the game on my own, so you’ll notice that the guide will resume on May 21st. I started about a month ago, so it hasn’t gotten very far. (June 1st, right now.) Also, there is a long process of making sure I have every little aspect of the game complete, which involves creating multiple saves, multiple experiments, and sometimes, multiple playthroughs.

      And of course, I have a part-time job and my parents are pleased when I have social outings. So, it may be a while before it’s “complete.”

      Anyway, If you notice something that doesn’t match up with your game, or you have a question, PLEASE feel free to contact me or leave a comment in the guide. Thank you! ^_^
