The Gamma is an enemy in Final Fantasy VI. It notably has the highest HP out of any normal enemy in Kefka's Tower.

Stats[edit | edit source]

Battle[edit | edit source]

Gamma usually starts the battle by using Gamma Rays, which inflicts Doom on one character. It also uses Gravity Bomb and Launcher, heavily damaging the party's HP. Finally, when it dies, it uses Atomic Rays. It is recommended to use Thundaga or Ultima against it.

Coliseum setup[edit | edit source]

Gamma has a lot of HP, so the player should prepare for a long fight. Fortunately, its attacks are not very varied; equip a Safety Bit/Memento Ring so that even when Gamma Rays hits, it will miss upon the countdown reaching zero. Having high Evasion will increase the chance of evading Attack; fire-elemental protection is also recommended, since Gamma will use Atomic Ray when defeated.
