Battle

It possesses two physical attacks, the Enemy Skill ????, and Flare. It can be powerful, but unlike most other varieties of Behemoth, it does not counter the party's attacks. It is not a difficult enemy to defeat at the stage of the game it is fought. If magical attacks are used on a Behemoth it will sometimes counter with Flare. Its Behemoth Horn attack may be used twice in one turn. Its Claw attack may also be used twice in one turn, or it may use Behemoth Horn directly after Claw in a single combo in place of using ????.

Stardust is a useful item dropped by Behemoths, which casts Comet2 on all enemies.

They have two items to steal, Phoenix Down and War Gong. Due to the way steals are calculated, the optimal character level to steal a War Gong is 54 (25%). War Gongs cannot be stolen by characters with a Sneak Glove equipped.

Strategy

Physical attacks work well as do strong spells, such as Shadow Flare, Comet, Comet2, and Break.

Etymology

Behemoth is a beast mentioned in Job 40:15–24. In addition to mythological creatures, it is likened to elephants, hippos, rhinos, and bison. Metaphorically, the term behemoth denotes "an extremely large or powerful entity."
