Adamantaimai uses Light Shell to counter any attack. If left alone, it will boost its Defenses with Barrier and Mbarrier. The rare Adaman Bangle can be stolen from it, which has only two Materia slots, but has the second-highest defense in the game, after the Ziedrich.

Adamantaimai has access to the Death Force Enemy Skill, however, it will never cast it in battle. To learn the spell, one must manipulate the Adamantaimai and then force it to cast the spell on the character with the Enemy Skill Materia.

If one sets the battle speed up when fighting Adamantaimai, Barrier and Mbarrier wear out much faster when compared to turns when the battle speed is lower, which virtually halves the amount of damage one must to do one of these monsters to defeat them.

Adamantaimai can drop the rare and powerful Dragon Scale item, which casts the Aqualung skill for roughly 1,000–2,000 Water damage to all enemies. This can only be done if the player did not steal the Adaman Bangle from it.


The Adamantaimai Cure glitch occurs once the Adamantaimai is given the Barrier and MBarrier statuses before its first turn. The Adamantaimai will try to use Cure upon itself, but does not have that spell, causing the glitch.
