Juzo Mido Notes & Tips
- Resistant to Blood Element and Poison build-up
- Immune to Stun build-up
- Equally resistant to Fire/Frost/Lightning damage
- His attacks build up inhibit status (blocks gift use and removes buffs from active gifts). Making use of Hephaestus Inhibit Resistance / Inhibit Removal or Anti-Inhibit consumables is advised if not all attacks can be dodged.
- His normal sword slashes deal less inhibit buildup compared to his other attacks. However, status effects still apply buildup even on block, so if one relies on gifts to survive or deal damage, the player must be wary of getting hit too often.
Juzo Mido Strategies
The main power of the boss lies in the immense damage that his sword deals. If he staggers you into getting hit a second time, you might die then and there. The first phase, while still deadly is much more predictable, and his non-activated sword has a short range. The true evil comes when second phase hits. His strong attacks will become even stronger, and will even one-shot lighter builds from time-to-time. If possible, try to stagger him at around 65-70%, so you can unload on him before he stands up, makes a small speech and starts unleashing pain. The healing timers in the second phase are very precise. His long range and thrust attacks will deal far more damage than you can hope to heal. If you have a companion active, they can distract Mido and let you heal, though you might want to step in before they get annihilated
If you defeat the boss you will see the writing "Greater Lost Dispersed" upon the screen.

Juzo Mido Lore
Juzo Mido is a despicable character, willing to sacrifice anything and anyone in the pursuit of evolution and progress over survival. He often took in orphans and used them as guinea pigs for his experiments, and then sold on the ones who were still living and stable to private military companies as advanced super-soldiers; among the many children he did this to were Yakumo Shinonome, Emily Su and Miguel Garcia.
Mido was a genius in the field of revenant research and an integral part of Project QUEEN. After the failure of Project QUEEN and the success of Operation Queenslayer, Mido chose to take on two Relics, implanting one in himself and one in Emily Su, transforming her into the Successor of the Claw. He resented Silva for creating and maintaining the Gaol of the Mists to protect revenants from the horrors, since Mido believed that he had forgotten why revenants and the Queen were created in the first place. So, he began experimenting and created powerful yet obedient Lost knights that he dubbed the Hunters in Black, and gave them the task of collecting and absorbing the remaining Relics. Mido was not collecting them for himself: rather, he was collecting them so that, when he had gathered enough, he could send them hurtling into Silva, causing him to frenzy and be unable to maintain the Gaol of the Mists, forcing revenants to fulfil their purpose.
During the events of the game, Mido leaves his Crypt and attacks the Crypt Watchers, Jack Rutherford and Eva Roux, in the Ashen Cavern along with his gang of Hunters in Black. Jack creates a diversion for Eva to escape, but it turns out that Eva escaping was planned by Mido, as he had injected a frenzying medicine into the Relic of the Throat, which had replaced her own. Mido briefly appears after the defeat of the Successor of the Claw, derisively congratulating the party before being assaulted by Jack, who attempted to get the element of surprise but ultimately failed as he immediately gets punched in the gut by Mido himself. Mido patronisingly chides Jack and says he's late, before revealing what he had done to Eva and mockingly suggesting that he should go and save her, at which point he disappears.
After defeating the Successor of the Throat in the Crown of Sand, Jack informs the party that Mido is making his way up the Crypt Spire, which can be seen in the distance. The party make their way up the tower and confront Mido, but he proclaims that he is on a tight schedule and activates his two most powerful Lost monsters, the Cannoneer and the Blade Bearer. After overcoming the two experiments, the party continue and confront Mido again, where he expresses his annoyance at their persistence and decides to show the party "the truth of this world", lamenting that he would have liked to watch Silva frenzy in person but that that would not be possible now. With a single swing of his greatsword, he bisects the three Hunters in Black behind him, and three Relics emerge from their ashen corpses. The Relics then promptly shoot out through the door behind him, and the screen Mido pulled up follows them as they hurtle through the provisional government building and into the Gaol of the Stagnant Blood, skewering Silva and making him start to frenzy. The screen then shifts to show the Gaol of the Mists dissipating and a few revenants running through it, only to be assaulted by horrors and finding that their weapons are useless. Luckily, the Gaol of the Mists returns, vaporising the horrors inside it: Silva is resisting frenzy.
Frustrated, Mido prepares to fight the party, with a view to approaching Silva and forcing him to frenzy after he has dealt with his current nuisance, but his plans are reduced to nothing as he is defeated and his body turns to ash, never to revive again.
Lore theories should be clearly marked as such.
