If you will not have eternal life, I will give you eternal suffering!
—The Emperor

The Emperor is the final boss of Soul of Rebirth in Final Fantasy II. He is the heavenly counterpart to the Emperor of Hell fought in Pandaemonium.


Battle Edit

The Blood Sword will be unavailable, unless the player gave it to Ricard before he died.

Starfall XVI targets the whole party, and hits for moderate damage. The Emperor uses Flare XVI frequently, alternating between this and his Starfall XVI attack. The Emperor sometimes casts Holy XVI or Blaze XVI on the whole party. He repeatedly casts Dispel XVI to remove the party's buffs. The Emperor's regular attacks hit for high damage and also heal him.

Strategy Edit

If the player gave the Blood Sword to Ricard in the main game, the fight against Emperor will be a simple affair as sixteen hits at most will eliminate him. Dual-wielding it with Ricard's Wyvern Lance or Scott's Wild Rose ensures maximum accuracy.

Otherwise, the party should be bolstered with buffs, such as Haste, Blink and Berserk. If Scott's Wild Rose has been obtained, it can be used to cast Berserk XVI on the entire party. As the Emperor does not use many status effects, Shell and Barrier are not necessary.

The Emperor's offense comes primarily from his magical attacks, of which only Blaze XVI can be mitigated. Thus, it is important to have high HP and to have Minwu and/or Scott heal as necessary. Using the Ancient Sword to inflict Curse makes the fight much easier, as the party will inflict greater damage to the Emperor and receive reduced damage from his attacks.
