Dual Horn only has physical attacks and is no threat, but has a large amount of HP, so inflicting various statuses may be helpful. The player can steal Pepio Nuts from them, and these can be used in chocobo breeding, although they are not the best nut and are thus unnecessary to procure.

Hidden in the Dual Horn's AI is a third, unnamed ability that costs 65,535 MP and so the Dual Horn will never use it. If one were to use a hacking device to give the Dual Horn 65,535 MP, it will do the Horn Lift animation twice on a random target of either player or enemy party. It inflicts 0 damage since there are no attack details present for the attack. Since this attack cannot be used in the normal game, when below 50% of its Max HP it'll display "Dual Horn's skill power is used up", the standard "not enough MP to use ability" error message.

This ability appeared as a third Manipulate ability in the original Japanese version, however it was removed from subsequent versions.
