  1. Only once
  2. 2.0 2.1 Only uses when Pandemona hasn't been drawn


First battle[]



The battle in Balamb Hotel.

Fujin uses powerful Wind-type magic, but as soon as the party draws the GF Pandemona from her, she cannot use magic and only uses physical attacks. She is susceptible to Sleep, which allows the player to then concentrate their attacks on Raijin to defeat him first.

When her HP is low, she may use Sai, an attack that reduces one character's HP to one. If a GF is being summoned, Sai will kill the GF, but not affect the character's HP. This attack has a low appearance rate, and only dangerous if Raijin is still alive. Otherwise the player has plenty of time to heal the affected character before Fujin's next turn.

Second battle[]



Fujin uses Regen on Raijin.

Fujin again uses powerful magic, among them Tornado and Meteor, which cannot be reflected and hit all party members. The player can protect against them with Shell and defensive Wind junctions. Fujin uses Meteor once per battle, after talking about her decision to help Seifer. Her status spells against the party can be prevented by summoning Carbuncle. One can cast Reflect on Fujin and Raijin to stop her barrage of supporting magic.

Fujin is vulnerable against status ailments and can be debilitated by summoning Doomtrain or using Quistis's Bad Breath Limit Break. The player can also cast Sleep or junction Sleep to ST-Atk-J to make her harmless.

At high levels, this battle provides a rare chance to draw Full-life. Prioritizing the party's Magic stat with junctions should help maximize the number of spells drawn.

Triple Triad[]


Fujin shares her Triple Triad card with Raijin. Theirs is a Level 6 Boss Card with good values for playing the minigame that can also be turned into an X-Potion with Quezacotl's Card Mod. The card can be rarely Carded from Iron Giant or Jelleye and won from NPC card players who use Level 6 cards.
