Rikku and Paine
Boris is a fiend in Final Fantasy X-2. He is first fought in Chapter 1 as a boss guarding the Black Mage dressphere atop the Floating Ruins on Mt. Gagazet. Later, when access to the Floating Ruins is unlocked in Chapter 3, he may appear as an ordinary rare enemy anywhere in the ruins.
Stats[edit | edit source]
Battle[edit | edit source]
For the first encounter, Boris is fairly strong, as he can inflict around 50 damage per strike. His Sticky End attack can inflict the Stop status on the party.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
It is best to have two party members in attacking-type dresspheres (such as the Gunner and Warrior) and the third as a Songstress who should continually use Darkness Dance. If a Warrior knows the abilities Flametongue or Liquid Steel, those could also be used.
In Chapter 3 and later, Boris has become obsolete and usually dies from the first attack.
Fiend Tale[edit | edit source]
Boris is one of the strongest fiends that available for capture during the early part of the game, It capable of learning Ailment Def. (blocks all negative status effects) and Total Limit Break which allows its to access HP and deal damage over 9999 points, Its unique attack, Spider Bite, can pierce through physical defense.
A notable Boris was a trickster who messed with the Gullwings' heads by claiming to be attacked by various fiends just to get Shinra's attention. On the day he was let go, he did get attacked by a Behemoth and was saved by Shinra.
