BattleEdit

The Iron Man can hit the entire party with a decently powerful physical attack. Its Heavy Sword attack may be used twice in one turn. Occasionally, it will boost its power with Adrenaline, which casts Haste and Barrier, but it primarily uses it as a counter-attack when its HP is below 75% of max, and up to four times per battle.

It resists many types of elemental magic, but should not be a threat to a party geared up to fight the final boss. The Iron Man can be morphed into an Escort Guard, and is the only extra source of them in the game; however, since it's only encountered after the point of no return, the final bosses will be the only enemies left to face.

StrategyEdit

Because of the Iron Man's massive HP, Laser will inflict 9999 damage at the start of the battle. It is weak against Water, making spells like Aqualung and Leviathan effective.
