Ironclad's attacks are physical. His primary technique is "Reppageki" (剛剣法・烈破撃, Goukenpou: Reppageki?, lit. Unyielding Blade Technique: Buster Attack), a quick sword strike on one character that he uses as a counterattack in response to any damage. On his turn, he will use either "Bushinzan" (剛剣法・武神斬, Goukenpou: Bushinzan?, lit. Unyielding Blade Technique: Martial God Slash), which attacks all characters for both HP and MP damage, or his more powerful "Shinryuudan" (剛剣法・神龍断, Goukenpou: Shinryūdan?, lit. Unyielding Blade Technique: Divine Dragon Slice), a jump attack against the character with the highest current HP.

He drops weapons with Strength +% abilities and armor with HP +% abilities, the Strength +20% and HP +30% abilities being fixed.


The best option is using the Celestial Weapons for defeating him.

Ironclad is not immune to Magic/Mental Break, however, it will only work 5% of the time, because of its Magic/Mental Break resistance.

While Ironclad is not immune to Armor Break, it will only work 5% of the time, so a Frag Grenade or Auron's Banishing Blade Overdrive (if successful) will be more effective against him with a 100% chance.

If the characters have Evasion of 200 or more, almost all of Ironclad's Reppageki attacks will miss.
