Chrono Trigger Boss Guide
1. Yakra (600 AD,
Use X-Strike and Flame Toss on him, stopping to heal
yourself with tonics or Frog's Slurp when your HP gets low. He will occasionally
counterattack after you attack him. This will hit all members of your party for
a decent amount of damage. Beware his needle attack, as it does a lot of damage.
Heal right after it. He has 920 hit points, gives 50 experience, 5 tech points,
and 600 Gold.
2. Dragon Tank
(1000 AD, Guardia Castle)
The Dragon Tank has three parts: the Head,
the main body, and the Grinder (wheel). The Head repairs damage to the body. It
also contains a shield that prevents damage by lightning and fire. Take out the
head first if you want to even think about defeating the tank. The head will use
a flame attack on you, doing moderate damage. The Grinder will run over you,
doing a lot of damage. The Body will either use missiles on you (doing moderate
damage) or a laser beam, doing high damage. Destroy the head with your weapons,
then attack both the Grinder and the body with Flame Toss and Slash. When your
HP gets low, use tonics. The Head has 600 HP. The Grinder has 208 HP. The Body
has about 266 HP. For defeating it you get 40 exp., 5 tech points, 500 G.
and Bits (2300 AD, Arris Dome)
First, kill off both bits with your
weapons. Then concentrate your attack on the main body with your strongest
techs. Heal when your HP gets too low, with Aura Beam. The body will regenerate
the bits after a time. Repeat the process until you have beaten the body. Each
Bit has approximately 200 HP. The Guardian has approximately 1200 HP. For
defeating it you get 300 experience, 5 tech points, 1000 G.
4. R Series (2300
AD, Factory Ruins)
There are six Robots in all. Your best bet is to use
area effect spells to do as much maximum damage as possible. You will only have
two people in your party to fight them, so they might be tough if you aren't at
a high enough level. Their regular attacks are fairly weak, but they have a few
special attacks which are somewhat powerful. They have a version of monster
toss, which will hurt both of your people for a decent bit of damage, and when
there is only one Robot left, it will use some kind of bomb on you that does a
lot of damage. Though Marle might have healed the party, have Lucca with you.
Cyclone works well against them, as two cyclones can take out three of them in
two attacks, while Lucca makes Flame Tosses on two or three robots at a time, or
heals the party with tonics. Each Robot has 150 HP. For beating them, you get
480 Experience, 6 tech points, 600 G.
5. Heckran (1000 AD,
Magic is the only thing that will hurt him, so wear a
MagicScarf. When he says "Go ahead and try to attack me" do not attack him, as
he will use a nasty counterattack spell that will do major damage to all of your
people. When it says "brief counterattack break" then give him everything you've
got: Fire, Ice and Lightning. When he says "Yes Indeed" he will nail one of your
characters with a major damage attack. Heal him with Marle. Heckran has
approximately 2100 HP. For defeating Heckran, you get 250 experience, 10 tech
points, 1500 Gold.
6. Zombor (600 AD,
Use Ice Magic or regular attacks on the top section. When
the top section dies, it casts MP Buster on you, which will take all of the MP
away from the person who killed it. Use Lightning Magic, Fire Magic, or regular
attacks on the bottom section. Its' regular attack isn't too bad, but it will
sometimes do an earthquake which will hit all of your party for a fair amount of
damage. Be sure to heal after that with Marle. The top section has 960 HP The
bottom section has about 800 HP. For defeating Zombor, you get 350 experience,
10 tech points, 1500 Gold.
7. Masa and
Mune (600 AD, Denadoro Mts.)
At first, Masa and Mune seem like
innocent children, that is until they turn into monsters and attack you. Your
first step is to have Lucca cast Hypno Wave on the two. Now you should attack
one of them and make sure the other stays asleep. Attack with your weapons. You
only need to defeat one of them to win the battle. They have 1000 HP each. For
defeating them, you get 400 experience, 4 tech points, and 400 Gold. Then, it
says "Apart, Masa and Mune are powerless." and then you realize the battle is
not over. The game says "With Masa's bravery, and Mune's knowledge! Two become
one!" Now they turn into big and ugly. Hit this guy with your best attacks and
magic. All of his attacks are fairly strong, so beware and keep your HP up with
Aura Beam. When it says that he is storing tornado energy, use Crono's Slash
attack on him to neutralize it. He may also attack with a Slash attack of his
own, doing decent damage to two people in your party. The second form of Masa
and Mune has 3600 HP. For defeating him, you get 500 Experience, 10 tech points,
1500 Gold. Masa and Mune then separate, and you get the broken Masamune.
8. Nizbel (65,000,000
BC, Reptite's Lair)
As for regular dinosaurs, use Lightning on this
guy. Then nail it with everything you have. When it says "releases electrocution
energy" he is gonna zap you. This will do an extreme amount of damage, in the
upper one hundred range. After that, heal your party with Robo's Heal Beam, for
example. You will need to hit him with lightning again. His earthquake attack
will do about 40+ points of damage to him. Nizbel has approximately 4200 HP. For
defeating him, you get 500 experience, 10 tech points, and no gold or items. If
you use Charm on him, you get a Third Eye.
9. Slash (600 AD, Magus'
Like most of the bosses in Magus' Castle, Slash has multiple
forms. His first form is rather weak. Use a combination of magic and regular
attack on him. His "attack attack attack" move does about 80 points of damage to
one character, so make sure your HP is up. You know you have won when he uses an
attack that hits the entire party for about 50 damage. The first form has about
3300 HP. He will then grab his sword from the wall, and begin to attack you with
his Slash technique. This will hit either one, two, or all three members of your
party for about 60 damage. Make sure to heal often with Frog or tonics. His "Yes
indeed" attack will do over 100 points of damage to you, and is quite powerful.
Heal right after that. Slash has 5200 HP. For defeating Slash, you get 500
experience, 10 tech points, 1500 Gold. You also get the Slasher 1 Sword for
10. Flea (600 AD, Magus'
Flea also has two forms. The first form is rather wimpy
however, and doesn't take much to kill. The only real thing it does is steal all
of the MP of one of your characters. So make Lucca kill it, since the real Flea
is "weak" against weapon attacks, not against Lucca's magic. Then you attack the
real Flea. This form is much more powerful than the first. X-Strike works pretty
well against it, as well as just regular attacks, and Crono's Spincut works
rather well too. Make Lucca use her gun. Flea will use Chaos attacks, Sleep
attacks, and Poison attacks against you. Make sure to bring Heals with you to
counteract their effects. The Stare will get one of your party to attack the
rest of your party, injuring everyone badly. Heal with Frog or tonics to heal
the party. Flea has about 4120 HP. For defeating Flea, you get 500 experience,
10 tech points, 1000 Gold and a Magic Tab.
11. Ozzie (600 AD,
Ozzie puts up a protective barrier so that you can't
hurt him. So don't even try to hit him, or he will just counterattack you.
Instead, hit the winches that are next to him. This is all you need to do to win
the battle. After you've hit them all, Ozzie will fall through the floor, and
you will win. For defeating Ozzie, you get nothing.
12. Magus (600 AD,
Magus is one of the toughest bosses to beat if you don't
know what you are doing. You need to pay attention to what magic he is using
against you. That is the barrier he has up at the moment. It is best to have a
varied party so you can hit him with whatever magic he is using against you:
Frog, Crono and Lucca (and if you can manage it, try to have learnt Delta Storm
triple tech before). Have Frog attack with the Masamune when Magus's barrier
isn't water-magic. This will help lower his defenses, and help prevent him from
casting certain spells on you. He will also use Dark Matter, his strongest spell
which will do 200+ points of damage to the whole party. There will come a time
during the battle when Frog seems to be doing significantly more damage with his
attacks. When this happens, hit him with your best physical attacks and/or with
Delta Storm, and he will not counterattack. This is a sign that he is weakening.
Magus has 6666 HP. For defeating Magus, you get 1500 experience, 15 tech points,
13. Nizbel II
(65,000,000 BC, Tyrano Lair)
Nizbel II is every bit a pain to beat as
the original Nizbel. His charge attack will do a fair amount of damage to
everyone in your party. Use Lightning on him to decrease his defense. Rock Throw
works well against him. Again, he will discharge the lightning energy, and it
will do a lot of damage. Heal with Robo's Heal Beam right after it. Nizbel II
has approximately 7000 HP. For defeating Nizbel II, you get 880 Experience, and
15 tech points. If you use Charm on him, you get a Third Eye.
Tyrano and Azala (65,000,000 BC, Tyrano Lair)
This is the final
showdown in the battle between the cavepeople and the reptites. Your first job
is to defeat Azala. Regular attacks, Lightning and Fire magic seem to work well
on her. Azala will use several attacks that do moderate damage, while the Tyrano
will either shoot fire at you for moderate damage, or "eat" one person for some
major damage in the 200 range. Azala has 2700 HP, and when Azala dies, the Azala
Break spell will reduce your HP by a small amount. Now, heal your characters
with Robo's Heal Beam and wait until it says "Removes def, and is storing pwr."
Now attack the Tyrano with your best techs. Cat Attack works very well on it,
and Fire and Lightning magic both are ok. Spincut works better than Lightning
though. When it counts down to 0, it will blast you with a powerful fire attack.
Heal then. It has 10,500 HP. For defeating them, you get 1800 Experience, and 25
tech points. If you use Charm on them, you get a PowerTab and a MagicTab.
15. Golem (12,000 BC,
This is one of the tougher bosses in the game because of
the Iron Orb attack it can do. This will reduce one characters life by half.
Since his physical counterattacks are really tough, the best way to defeat him
is to use magic on him. Alternate different kinds of spells on it, and he won't
have time to attack you. Or, if you must use any kind of physical attack use
Rock Throw, as it does major damage to him. But be sure to hit him with any kind
of magic (his counterattacks against Fire are quite weak) immediately
afterwards. The Golem has 7000 HP. For defeating the Golem, you get 1000
Experience, 35 tech points, 2000 Gold. If you use Charm on it, you get a
16. Sir Krawlie
(2300 AD, Sewer System)
Although this guy barely counts as a boss, I'm
including him in the list. If you go after him earlier in the game, he can be
fairly tough to beat. But later in the game, he is just a wimp. Nail him with
your best attacks, but watch out for his 1 HP move. Krawlie has 500 HP. For
defeating Sir Krawlie, you get 100 Experience, 5 tech points, 500 Gold.
17. Blue Beast, Red Beast, and Mud Imp
(12,000 BC, Beast's Nest)
These guys have a lot of HP, but aren't too
tough. For the Red Beast, use Ice Magic on it. For the Blue Beast, use Fire
Magic on it. Beat the tar of the Mud Imp with physical attacks. The Red Beast
has 5000 HP. The Blue Beast has 5000 HP. The Mud Imp has 1200 HP. Leave the Imp
for last. But if you cannot beat the Mud Imp, it will run away. For defeating
them, you get 600 experience, 16 tech points, 1600 gold. But if you manage to
get them all, you get 954 experience, 26 tech points, 2600 Gold. If you use
Charm on them, you get a SpeedTab, a MermaidCap and an Elixir.
18. Giga Gaia
(12,000 BC, Mt. Woe)
The secret to beating Giga Gaia is defeating the
hands. Once you defeat the hands, you have a clear opportunity to beat the tar
out of the main body before it regenerates the hands. When it has its hands
though, it will use dual attacks on you. It will attack you with Shadow and Fire
magic, so if you have the colored armors, now is the time to use them. It is
best to have your party wear a Black Mail, a Red Mail, and a Red Vest. That way,
someone is always being healed by the attacks, and you don't have to worry much
about your HP for the battle. Delta Force works very nicely against Giga Gaia,
but if you can manage to have these techs, use Luminaire, Flare and Shock. Each
hand has approximately 2000 HP. The main body has 9500 HP. For defeating Giga
Gaia, you get 3000 Experience, 30 tech points, 3000 Gold. If you use Charm on
the body, you get a SpeedTab.
19. Dalton (12,000 BC,
Dalton will use the Iron Orb attack, which will drop your
HP by half. Heal then. Nail this guy with your best magic attacks, and he is
fairly easy to beat. He has 3500 HP. When you defeat him, he will use a weird
attack that will damage the entire party. For defeating him, you get 1000
Experience, 30 tech points, 2500 Gold. If you use Charm on him, you get a
20. Golem Twins
(12,000 BC, Ocean Palace)
These guys can be tough. They are similar to
regular Golems, but having two of them makes things even tougher. You should
have Luminaire and Flare by now, so use that on them. If you need, heal with
Robo's Heal Beam or tonics. It works rather well. Each Golem has 10,000 HP. For
defeating them, you get 2000 Experience, 70 tech points, 4000 Gold. If you use
Charm on them, you get 2 MagicTabs.
21. Lavos (12,000 BC,
Although you aren't supposed to win the battle against
Lavos, I'm counting it as a boss, as you can kill it by using the New Game Plus.
You will fight the outer core, and it will be much more powerful than fighting
it at the end of the game like normal. The attacks will do more damage to you,
and will be done more frequently. His "Destruction rains from the Heavens!"
attack is really powerful. Heal with Robo right after each of these. You should
be able to kill it with Luminaire, Flare and Shock. When you defeat the outer
shell, you can refer to the end of this document for the Inner Core of Lavos.
The outer Shell should have about 10,000 HP.
22. Golem Boss
(12,000 BC, Blackbird)
This guy isn't that tough. He doesn't attack you
at all. He is afraid of heights, so if you can't beat him on your own, he'll run
away after a while. The Golem Boss has 15,000 HP. For defeating him, you get
2500 Experience, 40 tech points, 2000 Gold.
23. Dalton Plus
(12,000 BC, Blackbird)
It's time to finish the fight with this "king".
He will use the Iron Orb attack on you, and a weaker form of the Golem's
physical attack also. Dalton has 3500 HP. For defeating Dalton, you get 2500
Experience, 40 tech points, 2000 Gold. If you use Charm on him, you get a
24. Lavos Spawn
(2300 AD, Death Peak)
The spawn has two parts to it - a "head" and a
"body". Attack the head, or else you won't do any damage to it. Magic and
physical attacks work best. But try to avoid hitting the outer shell, or else it
will use the needle attack on you. Use Frog's Leap Slash, Robo's Uzzi Punch and
Ayla's Triple Kick. It has 4000 HP. There are a total of three of these on Death
Peak. For defeating the Lavos Spawn, you get 747 experience points, 120 tech
points, 500 Gold and an Elixir.
25. Son of Sun
(2300 AD, Sun Palace)
There is a very easy way to defeat this boss.
First, you need the right armor. The Red Mail, the Red Vest, and the Ruby Armor
are a must. Don't even think about it without them. If you have Magus, have him
cast Black Hole on it, and two of the flames will disappear. After that, cast
any level 2 spell, and see which flame does not counterattack. Now hit that
flame. When it does the roulette, just cast another level 2 spell on it. Do not
bother to try to attack the center, as you cannot hurt it that way. Whenever you
hit the correct flame, the center will take about 215 damage no matter how much
or little you do to the outer flame. The Son of Sun has about 2100 HP. For
defeating the Son of Sun, you get 3800 experience, 40 tech points, 2000 Gold. If
you use Charm on it, you get a Black Mail.
26. Flea Plus (600
AD, Ozzie's Fort)
This version of Flea is no different from the
original version of Flea. In fact, she is weaker than the first version of Flea
you fought. Flea has less than 3000 HP. Just bash her with whatever your
favorite technique is. He doesn't put up much of a fight. For defeating her, you
get 2000 experience points, 20 tech points, 2000 Gold.
27. Super Slash
(600 AD, Ozzie's Fort)
This version of Slash is not much different from
his other version either. Bash Slash with your favorite technique, or weapons.
He has about 2500 HP. For defeating him, you get 2000 Experience, 20 tech
points, 2000 gold.
28. Great Ozzie, Super Slash and Flea
Plus (600 AD, Ozzie's Fort)
Try to concentrate on one person at a
time, and watch out for their triple tech, as it can be quite nasty. The best
way is to attack the Great Ozzie himself with single techniques like Triple
Kick, Uzzi Punch, Confuse, Mega Bomb... so there's only one counterattack each
time you attack. When he dies, the others die, too. Super Slash has 4000 HP,
Flea Plus has 4000 HP, and Great Ozzie has 6000 HP. For defeating just Slash and
Ozzie, you get 5000 experience, 50 tech points, 3000 Gold. For defeating them
all, you get 7500 Experience, 80 tech points, 4000 Gold. If you use Charm on
them, you get an Ozzie Pants, a Slasher 2 and a Flea Vest.
29. Great Ozzie
(600 AD, Ozzie's Fort)
This is the last stand of Ozzie. He's a wimp as
usual. Just attack the level near him, and this time, you will fall down the
hole. Go back up, and he will pretty much defeat himself. Since you don't
actually defeat him, you don't get anything for your battle. If you use Charm on
him, you get a second Ozzie Pants.
30. Rust Tyrano
(600 AD, Giant's Claw)
This guy is just like the first Tyrano you
fought, only stronger. Again, Red Mail, Red Vest, and Ruby Armor are a must if
you want to survive the battle. Also, bring Ayla to steal from the boss if you
can. This guy can take a lot of damage, so be ready for a long battle. Luminaire
is a good spell to have, as well as Flare and Triple Kick. Again, he will count
down from 5 and blast you with Fire Magic. This guy is not meant to be tough,
but he does have a lot of HP. In fact, the Rust Tyrano has 25,000 HP. For
defeating the Rust Tyrano, you get 3800 Experience, 40 Tech points, and 2000
Gold. You can get the Rainbow Shell after you defeat it. If you use Charm on it,
you get a Red Mail.
31. Yakra XIII
(1000 AD, Guardia Castle)
This guy is a lot like his predecessor. He
does use chaos a lot, so be prepared if you can. Blast him with your best stuff.
Have Marle, Lucca and Ayla. Charm him to get a White Mail, and then attack him
with Antipode 3 and Triple Kick. Yakra has a earthquake attack that will do a
decent amount of damage to you. The Needle 13 attack will do a lot of damage to
you. When you beat him, he will hit you with one more needle attack. Yakra XIII
has 18,000 HP. For defeating Yakra, you get 3500 Experience, 40 tech points,
2000 Gold, and 1 MegaElixir. If you use Charm on him, you get a White Mail.
32. Retinite (600 AD,
Retinite bears a strong resemblance to Zombor, but looks
are about all they have in common. In order to defeat this monster, you need to
have someone who can use Water or Ice magic in your party. Every time you hit
Retinite, it will raise its' defenses against attack, and water will weaken it.
We usually attack the mid section first. Magic will not work on Retinite at all.
You need to use your best physical attacks on Retinite. Weaken him with Marle's
Ice 2, and then attack with Ayla's Triple Kick, and Crono's Confuse. If you
need, heal them all with Aura Beam. The Mid section has about 2000 HP. The top
section has about 5,000 HP. The bottom section has between 5,000 and 6,000 HP.
For defeating Retinite, you will get 2600 experience, 100 tech points, 2000
gold. If you use Charm on the eye, you get a SpeedTab.
33. Atropos XR
(2300 AD, Geno Dome)
This is a one on one battle between Atropos XR and
Robo. Make sure he is powerful enough to stand up to the task at hand. Atropos
has the same moves as Robo can do. She will use Area Bomb and Rocket Punch the
most, and will also use the Heal Beam on herself. Area Bomb works good against
her. Make sure Robo has the highest magic he can have, as he will need the added
boost to win. Once you do enough damage to defeat her, it will take a few
moments for her to realize that she is dead and will keep attacking you for a
bit. Atropos has 6000 HP. For defeating Atropos XR, you get no experience, no
tech points, no gold. But you do get Atropos' Ribbon, which will raise Robo's
Speed by 3, and Magic Defense by 10.
34. Mother Brain and Display (2300 AD, Geno
This is the psycho robot in charge of the factory. Shutting her
down will shut down the place. The displays around the room will heal her. Don't
destroy them. If you destroy all three of them, Mother Brain will use her most
powerful attacks on you. If you keep one alive, it will still heal her, but she
won't be able to use her most powerful attacks. So use Robo's Uzzi Punch, Ayla's
Triple Kick and Crono's Confuse. Each display has 1 HP. Mother Brain has 5000
HP. For defeating the Mother Brain, you get 3000 experience, 40 tech points,
3000 Gold. You also get the Terra Arm and the Crisis Arm. Once you win, you
cannot re-enter the factory. If you use Charm on them, you get a Blue Mail and
35. Mega Mutant
This sure doesn't look like the Mutants you are used to
seeing! Blast this dude with your best techs, Luminaire, Flare and Shock/Dark
Matter. It will go down pretty easily. It will use Chaos spells on you, so be
prepared for them. You only need to kill either the top or the bottom to destroy
it. The top has 3,850 HP. The bottom has 4,600 HP. For defeating the Mega
Mutant, you get 900 experience, 50 tech points, 1500 Gold. If you use Charm on
it, you get an Elixir and a Vigil Hat.
36. Giga Mutant
This boss isn't much harder than the Mega Mutant. Physical
attacks do little damage to it, so blast it with magic. Every time you hit it,
it will try to steal some life away from you. It also has a life shaver attack
where it reduces your HP to 1 for one person. Heal after that. The Giga Mutant
has 4,950 HP for the bottom section. The top section has 5,800 HP. For defeating
the Giga Mutant, you get 1500 experience, 80 tech points, 2000 Gold. If you use
Charm on it, you get a Hit Ring and a Wall Ring.
Mutant (Black Omen)
This boss isn't that tough. Magic will tend to
heal the lower half, so concentrate on killing the upper half first. The top
half has 7,860 HP. The lower half will die when the upper half dies. The lower
half has 20,000 HP. For defeating the Terra Mutant, you get 2000 Experience, 100
tech points, 3800 Gold. If you use Charm on it, you get a Muscle Ring and a
38. Lavos Spawn
This Spawn is very tough to beat. Hit the head only, or it
will counterattack you for severe damage. It has a needle attack that will also
cause confusion as well as do high damage. It can cast Dark Bomb as well. Use
Confuse, Uzzi Punch, Triple Kick... The Lavos Spawn has 10,000 HP. For defeating
the Lavos Spawn, you get 2450 Experience, 120 tech points, 2500 Gold. If you use
Charm on it, you get a Safe Helm and a Haste Helm.
39. Queen Zeal
This is your first of two battles with the Queen. We
suggest to have at least Robo in your party, for he can cure the party with Heal
Beams. Her opening attack will be to reduce the HP of your party to 1. But don't
worry: she can't kill you. Nail her with cheap magic attacks after this move (to
save your MP for later), and if you have them in your party, with Frog's Frog
Squash and Ayla's Dino Tail. These techs are the strongest when your HP is at 1.
We do not suggest trying to heal yourself, as she will just do the 1 HP move
again. On occasion, she will attempt to steal some of your MP. Zeal has 12,000
HP. For defeating her, you get one MegaElixir.
Machine (Black Omen)
Still weak from your battle with Zeal, your
best bet is to use that MegaElixir you won. From here, pommel it with everything
you have. NOTE: The Masamune absorbs energy from the Mammon machine, so you
might want to have Frog in your party. When you attack it with Magic, it says
that the machines attack power goes up. When you attack it physically, its
defense goes up. So your best bet is magic attacks (the most powerful ones you
have). When you attack it, and the Mammon M. stands still, it is weakening. Just
kill it with your best techs or attacks: Luminaire, Flare and Shock/Dark Matter.
The Mammon M. has 18,000 HP. For defeating it you get nothing.
41. Queen Zeal
This is the last battle between you and Zeal. There are
three parts to this boss. A head, and two arms. Ignore the arms and go for the
head. Make sure you use tech that only hits one section of Zeal, or you will get
hit by a nasty counterattack from the hands. The arms' counterattacks are either
taking that person's HP to 1, or MP to 0. She also has some nasty regular
attacks that can hurt if you don't have good magical protection. Mega Bomb,
Triple Kick, Uzzi Punch and Confuse work well here. The Lightning attack she
does is not very powerful. Her Water attack is very powerful however. She has
been known to use her Hallation/ HP to 1 attack, so beware of it: heal with
Robo' Heal Beam. Queen Zeal has 20,000 HP so it's going to be a long battle no
matter what. For defeating her, you get nothing. If you use Charm on her hands,
you get a Prism Dress and a Prism Helm.
42. Lavos "Shell" (1999
This is your first step into the final battle. You must now face
the many forms of Lavos. Try to have Gold Studs as accessories and wear the best
armors you have. These are the forms that Lavos takes:
1.Dragon Tank 2.Guardian and Bits 3.Heckran 4.Zombor 5.Masa & Mune
(second form) 6.Nizbel 7.Magus 8.Black Tyrano & Azala 9.Giga Gaia 10.Lavos'
The last form has approximately 10,000 HP and is rather easy to beat, using
Luminaire, Flare and Shock/Dark Matter. The other forms are just like their
43. Lavos "Core 1"
Now that the outer shell is broken, it's time to attack the
inner core. We advise a party consisting of Crono, Lucca and Robo with Gold
Studs. Luminaire, Flare and Shock are about the best spells to use against the
final forms of Lavos. Lavos has three parts to it. A central part, and two arms.
In order to defeat the center, you need to defeat the arms first. Lavos will
start with a powerful attack before you can get a move off. You may need to heal
afterwards. The left arm appears to have less hit points than the right arm. The
left arm has somewhere between 7000 HP and 8500 HP. The right arm appears to
have between 8500 HP and 10,000 HP. Be careful about this, because when the left
arm is gone, the right arm will cast a spell that will remove all of one
characters protective magic, even that which is invoked by armor such as the
Vigil Hat. When you beat the right arm, wait till Lavos casts a spell called
Obstacle, which is a Chaos type spell. Then the main body's defense will
decrease a lot. So now use Luminaire, Flare and Shock till it dies, healing with
Robo when you need it. The central core may use Obstacle against you several
times during the battle, or something called Flame Battle which is fairly
powerful. The central body has about 20,000 HP. You get nothing for winning.
44. Lavos "Core 2"
This is it, the final showdown with Lavos. Lavos has three
parts. A central body, a left bit, and a right bit. Be sure to have Crono, Lucca
and Robo (in this order) with Gold Studs. The central body provides a protection
for the right bit (the real core): so use Luminaire, Flare and Shock till the
center dies. The bits will sometimes heal the central body, and the bits can
also attack you. The central body will cast Time Warp which seems to enable
itself to cast different spells depending on the time period you are in. After
you've destroyed the central body, wait till the right bit shuts off his
defense. Since there's no central body, the bits will counterattack each time
you hit the left one. So you must only hit the right one: use Crono's Confuse
and Lucca & Robo's DoublevBomb. Since Robo is next to the right bit (if
you've made sure to put him in third place), DoublevBomb will do major damage to
the right bit, doing more than 7600 damage at level 99! When you need it, cure
the party with Robo's Heal Beam. If you don't have anymore MP, use a MegaElixir.
The right bit will eventually revive the center body and the left bit if you
killed them. The right bit will now raise its defense again. You need to repeat
the process over again. The left bit has about 1500 HP, the center has about
10,000 HP, and the right bit has about 30,000 HP. Killing the right bit will
kill the other parts of Lavos, thus beating the game!
