Boss encountered are identified by their introductory title that will be displayed just before combat begins.

Ko-Shi & Ro-Shi Strategies NieR Automata

Ko-Shi & Ro-Shi Strategy (Melee) NieR Automata

Ko-Shi & Ro-Shi is encountered after the separate encounters against both Ko-Shi and Ro-Shi. This time with a few new movesets from their individual encounters. This time there will be more attacks that can generate shockwaves, so you will need to keep a distance to give yourself enough time and space to jump over them as they approach. Watch for when the unit jumps. The landing will generate a large shockwave. Same thing will occur when it starts to stomp its legs. Each limp will take a turn, generating their own damaging wave. The only way to avoid them is to jump over each ring as it approaches. 

This new merged boss will also have new claw-like limbs that can swipe at you. The best approach is still to continue to circle around while keeping your distance. Once you are out of its line of sight you can advance towards it with your melee attacks. Once its initiates the lasers, be ready to jump. This laser can last longer and the unit may take a few turns. These turns also become faster compared to previous variants. This means when it releases orbs, they are also harder to avoid. As soon as you see it assume their attack positions, always get ready to double jump through them. Alternate distancing yourself and coming in for an attack until they are destroyed. This will begin the next cutscene.
