Behemoth is an enemy in Final Fantasy VIII.


Battle Edit

It is among one of the more dangerous enemies to fight, as it has access to powerful attacks and spells such as Meteor, as well as the Blue Magic spell Mighty Guard. Behemoths cast Meteor as a final attack.

Using Devour on a Behemoth at level 40 and above will raise the devourer's Magic stat by one.

Strategy Edit

Behemoths can be easily defeated by junctioning 100 units of Death magic to Status Attack, or by casting Blind and Silence on it, which will render it useless. Doomtrain also works well against one.
