Battle & Strategy

Before making your way to the Dragon Kemono, it’s worth knowing that the celestial creature puts up a lengthy battle. His fight alone will consist of four stages which feature various sets of moves. So before you rush to battle make sure you have ample healing supplies. Because trust us, you’ll need them badly!

Other than healing supplies make sure you have a steady hand on most of the Karakuri, especially the Glider because you’ll need it a lot to avoid receiving fall damage.

Additionally, it goes without saying that your armor and weapons should be in top shape in Wild Hearts before taking on these bosses. Make sure all the gear is upgraded to the max and is suited to your play style. If you’re confused about what weapon to use then you can use Void Karakuri Staff. High-tier bows work well against the final Kemono boss as well.

Although, the best weapon to use against the Final dragon Kemono has to be the Claw Blades. These blades will allow you to reel yourself toward the Kemono and deal damage while pulling out lethal combos. The Kemono will constantly fly around so it will be hard to reach it most of the time.

Nonetheless, when players reach the summit of Sacred Mountain the battle commences. The Dragon Kemono is a huge creature and it’s capable of affecting a large area with its moves. Hence, players will need to constantly move around the field and keep a close eye on the Dragon.

Some of his common moves like the Body Slam and Tail Whip can inflict massive amounts of damage on the player. However,  try getting close to the dragon and make sure to land a bunch of blows on the weak spots (highlighted by a light blue color).

Whenever the Dragon Kemono uses the body slam move it will remain in cooldown mode for a while. Take full advantage during this and inflict as much damage as you can. As the battle progresses the Dragon Kemono will eventually rise to the air and point his hands up.

This is a major queue to get off the ground ASAP. Use your Glider because the Dragon will slam the ground creating a damaging shockwave that will also change the season in the arena.

The Celestial Dragon Kemono will change between multiple seasons including Spring, Autumn, and Winter. However, throughout these, the move set will remain almost the same although the elemental damage it inflicts on you might change. Nevertheless, the strategy should remain the same, which is to constantly move around the field and focus on the weak points of the Dragon.

After going through all the seasons, the Dragon will do its seasonal slam once again during which it will also unleash its true form. Be aware because the damage during the final phase can take you out instantly. Hence, keep your distance and have the health supplies at the ready, Follow the same attacking strategy, and with patience, you’ll eventually take down the Dragon Kemono.


Before we move on to the other Final Kemono fight in Wild Hearts, it is worth knowing all the moves the Dragon Kemono uses. The Gigantic snake-like dragon has loads of different moves that are capable of blindsiding you. Hence, it’s best to know everything about the Kemono beforehand. Here is a quick look at the moves the Dragon Kemono uses in Wild Hearts.

  • Body Slam: A highly damaging move, during which the Dragon Kemono will rise in the air and come crashing down flattening its body on the floor. The attack covers a large area of effect, however, it also stuns the Kemono for a few seconds.
  • Tail Whip: Another slam attack where the Dragon flips around the smashes its tail on the floor. Players can easily dodge the attack if they follow the movement of the Kemono.
  • Sliding Attack: Similar to Body Slam but in this attack the Dragon Kemono hits its body on the ground and slides forward to a certain length. If not dodged timely it can take down around half of your health.
  • Electric Fields: An AoE attack occasionally used by the Dragon Kemono. During the move, the Kemono will conjure up multiple electric fields in the battle arena. If players get caught in these they will become paralyzed and will also receive damage.
  • Seasonal Smash: One of the deadliest and also the coolest looking attacks amongst all the fights in Wild Hearts let alone the final boss fight. The Dragon Kemono will rise in the air and raise its arms for a few seconds before crashing down on the ground. When the dragon makes contact on the floor the season inside the arena will change. Dragon Kemono will only perform the Seasonal Smash 4 times during the battle.
  • Fire Bombs: After you clear off the first season, the Kemono will then begin using another move where it blows the fire bomb from its mouth which briefly follows the player. The Fire bombs move is quite easy to dodge and is rarely used by the Dragon. Therefore, you do not need to worry about it too much.
  • Fire Field: Similar to Electric fields but with fire in them. This variation of the move will mostly be used in the final season of the battle.
  • Dragon Breath: Only occurs during the final phase of the battle when the Dragon Kemono reaches its final form. It will breathe blue fire which will create multiple floating orbs that will follow and detonate near the player. These projectiles can be quick. So it is important to dodge them timely.
  • Ice Shards: Another slam attack that only occurs during the final few seasons in the Dragon Kemono boss fight. The dragon will slam the ground which will create a wave of ice shards in a straight line. Players only need to move away from the dragon’s line of sight to avoid the attack.

The unfortunate thing is that you won’t be able to prepare yourself for the fight. You’ll only get a few seconds of rest before taking on the final Kemono. However, on the brighter side, the Human-shaped Warrior Kemono is far easier than the Dragon Kemono. So chances are that you’ll easily overcome it in battle.

You can use the same gear as you did against the Dragon Kemono, although you could switch out the Claw Blades for this fight. The Karakuri Katana or the Staff will be good enough to pull the job on this battle.

The battle arena will be quite restricted as compared to the Dragon fight. Nevertheless, the Final Kemono moves are quite predictable and can be easily avoided. Although, some of its attacks are pretty fast which can bamboozle the player. On top of that, as the battle rages on there will come a point where the Kemono will start teleporting.

The Final Kemono teleportations will always get followed by a quick attack. Therefore, always be on the lookout and make sure to roll and dodge at the perfect time. Players could also use different Basic Karakuri to jump around the arena. Nevertheless, understanding the attack pattern of the final Kemono won’t be tough. Once you get the hang of his moves, it will become a lot easier to take him down. Similar to the fights against Dragon Kemono, land calculated blows and aim for the weak points in his body.

Do not get too greedy while being aggressive because moves like the Triple Sword Slash could take you out if you get caught in them. The best strategy to defeat the Final Kemono is to circle him and attack from the sides or the back. As long as you’re not directly in front of him, you’ll be good! Although, players will need to revise their strategy a little when the Kemono starts teleporting. 

During that sequence feel free to spam dodge every time you see the Kemono vanish in thin air. When he reappears let him dish out his attacks while you side-roll. Follow the dodges with a quick flurry of attacks until he teleports again. Rinse and repeat this strategy and you’ll eventually defeat the Final Boss in Wild Hearts.


If you’re similar to games like Wild Hearts then you’d find the moveset of the Final Kemono quite generic. It doesn’t have anything special up its sleeve. Most of the attacks are quite easy to predict. On top of that if your reactions are fast enough then you’ll also dodge them quite easily. Despite all that, it is still crucial to know all kinds of moves that the Final Boss uses.

  • Triple Sword Slash: One of the most used attacks by the Kemono, during which he slashes the sword twice and on the final swing he stabs the sword onto the ground. A blast will be released from the ground where the player is standing after Kemono’s last stab into the ground. The move is easy to dodge. However, if you do get caught in the strikes then your health will drop down to a critical level. 
  • Aerial Slash: In the Aerial Slash attack, the Kemono will jump up in the air and bring his sword slashing down on the ground. The move can confuse the best of players since it’s hard to track the Kemono once he jumps up.
  • Sword Swipe: A simple move where the Kemono swipes his giant sword in front of him once. The swipe covers a good area, therefore, try to keep your distance.
  • Ground Wave: The final Kemono will also use a Ground Wave attack from time to time. During the move, he will slide his sword across the floor which will emit a wave toward the player. Simply dodge to either side before the wave reaches you.
  • Heavy Sword Attack: Another single swing of the giant sword. Although this one does a lot more damage and the Kemono will also take a while to charge up the attack.
  • AoE Stun: A magical move performed by the Kemono where he conjures up a glass box inside the arena. After a few seconds, the box collapses causing damage to anything that’s inside it. Whenever you see the Kemono conjuring the box, stop attacking him and maintain a good distance until the move is over.
  • Spin Attack: The Kemono will also spin around with his giant sword in hand. The 360 attack is unavoidable if you’re standing close to the Kemono. Hence, make sure to get away as soon as you see that the Boss is readying up to spin around.


So there you have it, our complete guide on the Wild Hearts Final Boss. The bosses, or Kemono, are quite common throughout the game. When it comes to the final battle players are put up against two separate Kemono one by one.
