Oyamatsumi is a one of the punishing foes you can encounter in the Netherworld. He is a level 48 boss who can deal heavy physical damage to your team, so be sure to face him only when you're around this level. Additionally, he is weak to fire, so bring any strong demons you have with fire attacks.

How to Beat Oyamatsumi

Use Lightning Attacks Against Konohana Sakuya

When facing Konohana Sakuya, it's best to bring demons that can deal significant electric damage to exploit her weakness. Additionally, bring a support demon that can inflict debuffs to minimize her damage output, especially when she starts buffing herself with her signature skill, Sakuya Sakura.
