Behemoth possesses two physical attacks, the Enemy Skill ????, and Flare. It can be powerful, but is not a difficult enemy to defeat at the stage of the game it is fought.
Behemoth counters magical attacks 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 ????.
If the player wants learn ???? from a Behemoth quickly, then its current HP must be between 3500 to 5251 HP, and then the player just must wait until it uses ????. The player must not attack with magic, because after Behemoth uses Flare four times, it won't have any MP left. The player can start the battle with Laser or Demi2 to leave it at the correct HP for using ????, but must beware its Flare counter.
Behemoth has 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.
[view·edit·purge]Behemoth is a beast mentioned in Job 40:15–24. In addition to mythological creatures, it is likened to dinosaurs, especially sauropods, as well as hippos, rhinos, and bison. Metaphorically, the term behemoth denotes "an extremely large or powerful entity".
