Adam is a Boss in NieR: Automata. Adam is a silver-haired, young man of beauty whose true character is shrouded in mystery. He has a calm personality, but will take relentless action if it's for his goal. He acts as one of the main antagonists and recurring bosses of the game. Bosses are special larger Enemies that can be encountered throughout the game in different Locations. A Boss encounter will usually signify progress, or a chapter ending when following the main storyline. Some of these bosses may first be encountered As NPCs to introduce some Lore and backstory before they are inevitably faced in a Combat encounter as a Boss. Boss encountered are identified by their introductory title that will be displayed just before combat begins. Their HP bar and Level will also be displayed above the character throughout the combat encounter. Some bosses in the game may be optional and avoided. All information on optional or required bosses stats, Locations, encounters and strategies can be found on their designated Bosses


This unit has achieved an unusual level of evolution among machine lifeforms, as it possesses a strong resemblance to androids. Born naked from a cocoon of machine lifeforms, its movement was initially quite clumsy. It grew rapidly, however, and promptly began learning new methods of attack.

  • Lv: ??

Adam Strategies NieR Automata

Adam Strategy 1 (Melee) NieR Automata

Machine Surge
            When the battle begins, begin teeing off on Adam to do as much initial damage as you can. Eventually he will back off and a cutscene will occur and the battle will resume again. Continue to assault him with damage and he will back off and charge up again. He will now go airborne but can be gone after with heavy offensive.
He will then teleport to the top of a ledge. From there he will start shooting energy bursts down at you. He will hover around the arena firing at you so ranged is an option here with your  PODs. At this point he will start calling beams up from the ground.
When he makes his way back to the ground, bring the attack to him until he is dead.led Strategy goes here. It should feature details on the build, level and recommended weapons and items as well as counters for specific attacks.


Adam Attacks NieR Automata

First Phase
Energy attack He encircles himself in energy and starts deflecting your bullets. He then releases the energy, damaging everything surrounding him. Dodge at the right time when this happens or get away from him before he releases the energy.
Horizontal Kick He has a horizontal kick, with little to no range. Simple dodge it.

Teleports locations out of reach  and starts doing one of the following two attacks:

A. He starts shooting large energy orbs. Stay locked-on to him so you can easily dodge these orbs.

B. He creates pillars of energy from underneath , dealing some serious damage. You can tell where they're coming out from because a small light appears on the floor. Easily dodgeable as well. Note that you can keep shooting at him while he's far away to keep the damage going. You can even use your Pod's Laser Beam attack to speed up things.

Upper kicks He falls backwards and then kicks up. Like always, stay behind him at all times.
Downward kick. He jumps and falls with an energy-infused kick. Does lots of damage but luckily he likes to target 9S all the time.
