The Garuda is an enemy in Final Fantasy XIII-2.



Garuda uses "Barrier" to increase its resistance to physical attacks and magic.


The Relentless Assault (RAV/COM/RAV) paradigm can be used to stabilize Garuda's chain gauge before shifting to Tri-disaster (RAV/RAV/RAV) to fill it, finishing with Cerberus (COM/COM/COM) to deal as much damage as possible before its chain gauge empties.
