MP: 350
EXP: 1900
GP: 1200
Weakness: N/A
Location: Mt. Hobs

GP: 0
Weakness: N/A
Location: Baron Inn
Strategy: Yang can be very difficult with his power and high HP. Cecil should attack as always, Tellah should use Ice3 if he has (or any "3" spells) to do massive damage. Keep your HP up with Cures.


Baigan
HP: 4444
MP: 250
EXP: 0
GP: 0
Weakness: N/A
Location: Baron Castle
Strategy: Baigan will start off with Wall, which can prove to be a nuiscance. The physical attacks should attack Baigan's body as much as possible, then if you feel like taking a risk, use magic on one of the arms or his body. If you defeat the body first, take down the arms fast or make sure you have 3 party members remaining since they will blow up and kill themselves and a party member.


Cagnazzo
HP: 5312
MP: 1100
EXP: 5500
GP: 4000
Weakness: Lightning

MP: 1200
EXP: 6000
GP: 5000
Weakness: Holy
Location: Magnet Cavern
Strategy: This is a strong boss, and the only way to beat it is to have Edward's harp from Troia. After the scene and the real battle starts, have everyone attack the boss while Tellah heals everyone. If you don't kill him fast, he'll turn into Dark Dragon, and incredibly powerful boss, so kill him off fast. He's not that tough.


Sandy
HP: 2591
MP: 1800
EXP: 2500
GP: 3000

Location: Tower of Zot
Strategy: One of the Delta sisters, she's the weakest and her only real threat is Confuse/


Cindy
HP: 4599
MP: 1800
EXP: 2500
GP: 3000
Weakness: N/A
Location: Tower of Zot
Strategy: Cindy is the threat of them all. She has high defense and requires physical attacking to take down quickly. She will cast Wall on herself to make it harder to do damage. Like Baigan, if you want to take a risk, use magic when you think it wore out.


Mindy
HP: 2590
MP: 1800
EXP: 2500
GP: 3000
Weakness: N/A
Location: Tower of Zot
Strategy: Mindy isn't such a threat either, but she's not as weak as Sindy, so take her down first. Use physical attacks to take her down without letting her use magic.


Valvalis
HP: 8636
MP: 1900
EXP: 9000
GP: 5500
Weakness: Air
Location: Tower of Zot
Strategy: Valvalis isn't too difficult, but her Stone spell will prove to be troublesome. If that happens, use Soft on the party member to cure it. When she turns into a tornado, use Kain's jump ability to stop it. His Jump also does major damage to valvalis.


Calbrina
HP: 5315
MP: 2800
EXP: 12000
GP: 5000
Weakness: N/A
Location: Dwarven Castle
Strategy: First, you will have to destroy 3 dolls out of the six of the same color. The remaining dolls will turn into Calbrina. Calbrina isn't much trouble if you can avoid Confuse or remove it as soon as it happens. Keep attacking the doll to destroy it before it reforms back to it's original six doll form.


Golbez
HP: 2800
MP: 4000
EXP: 15000
GP: 11000
Weakness: N/A
Location: Dwarven Castle
Strategy: Golbez will use an instant kill attack towards the beginning of the battle, so get Kain to jump to avoid it.

Balnab-Z
HP: 4518
MP: 282
EXP: 20
GP: 2500
Weakness: N/A
Location: Tower of Bab-il

Lugaborg
HP: 9321
MP: 3000
EXP: 10100
GP: 4000
Weakness: N/A
Location: Tower of Bab-il
Strategy: LugaBorg will start out poisioning everyone. Although it gets nullified later in the battle, if you don't have much HP, it'll be a good idea to cure if before it gets worse. Cecil and Yang should attack while Kain jumps, Rose recovers everyone and Rydia uses Titan.

EXP: 35000
GP: 0
Weakness: N/A
Location: Cave of Bahamut
Strategy: After the battle with Leviathan, you can come here and face Bahamut. He has high HP, and he is similar to Odin. He has a countdown, and if you don't defeat him within the countdown, he'll use an incredibly powerful attack that mostly liekyl will KO your party if they're not leveled-up enough. Use Reflect on Rosa towards the end of the countdown.

MP: 11800
EXP: 55000
GP: 0

MP: 3125
EXP: 61000 GP: 0br> Weakness: N/A

GP: 0
Weakness: N/A
Location: Moon Core
Strategy: N/A


Zeromus

Zeromus
HP: 115000
MP: 9999999
EXP: 0
GP: 0
Weakness: N/A
Location: Moon Core
Strategy: Zeromus is extremely difficult. He'll use Big Bang, which will do 2000-4000+ HP damage to everyone. When he does, immediately cast Cure4 on the party. Have Cecil mercilessly attack, Edge should throw ninja stars and swords, Kain should Jump constantly, Rydia should summon Bahamut, and Rosa should keep using Cure4 and Wall if possible. Rosa will eventually run dry on MP (as well as Rydia) so use Ether2s and or Elixirs. Zeromus has some powerful attacks, but keep up the strategy above and take Zeromus down once and for all.
