Battle[edit | edit source]

Dark Nation casts Barrier on Rufus as the first move. It will also cast this spell and MBarrier on itself. Afterward it will use bite attacks and Bolt.

If Rufus is defeated before the Dark Nation, it is removed, leaving no EXP, AP, gil, or items.

Dark Nation is a simple boss. Cloud can use magic to rapidly kill it before attacking Rufus. It is fairly weak and should not pose a threat.
