Easy Type

Battle[edit | edit source]

The CPU is protected by the Defense Node and Attack Node. CPU will cast Reflect on itself. If the player takes out both nodes CPU will use Globe199 (which deals 9999 damage to a single target) twice, killing two party members. In the SNES version CPU uses Globe199 to counter a physical attack.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The player should have everyone attack the Defender until it is out. Most magic will bounce back. The player should let the Attacker attack the party, and have Rosa group-cast Curaga while the others attack CPU. After the CPU loses all its health the player can finish off the Attacker.

The fight becomes easy if Fusoya uses Meteor and Rydia uses Quake (or Bahamut).

AI script[edit | edit source]

Phase 1:

Turn 1 - Reflect - Any magic targeting the CPU for the duration of this spell's effect will have no effect, and will target the spell caster instead. The CPU will only ever cast this on itself.
When reflect wears off - Reflect
If both the Attack Node and the Defense Node are destroyed - Reset ATB gauge, enter phase 2:

When in Phase 2: Turn 1 -

  • Globe199 - Obscene Damage on one random party member.
  • Globe199 - Obscene Damage on one random party member.
  • Regenerate - Revives Attack Node and Defense Node at full Hp.
Enter Phase 1
