Chekhov is fought by Yuffie in the Wutai Pagoda. She is supposed to represent magic, but does not use magic often. Chekhov is the third boss in the pagoda. Losing to Chekhov does not prompt a Game Over.



# Formation
625 Chekhov (No Rows)


Godo's Pagoda, 3f. 625 (event)


Even though the battle is not a back attack, some of the special attack formation rules still apply to the battles fought in the pagoda. The Change command to change row is greyed out, Chekov starts with an empty ATB bar, and the first physical attack Yuffie inflicts deals double damage.

Chekhov fights no differently than any other Twin Brain. The only difference is that she can Drain more HP. Like Twin Brains, she always inflicts Paralyzed on the player with her Stare Down attack, which is a far greater threat since Yuffie is fighting alone. Equipping a Jem Ring can prevent this effect.

All the bosses in the Wutai Pagoda appear to have a link to theater. Anton Chekhov was a famous nineteenth century Russian author and playwright. The intention was that each opponent would speak in a different way based on their origin, but this is missed in the English translation.
