Battle[edit | edit source]

Jenova∙DEATH attempts to inflict Silence status onto the party. She can attack quickly with the Red Light portion up three times in one turn, and has a high Magic Defense compared with her physical Defense. All of her attacks are Fire attacks.

Tifa is a required member of the party for this boss, so she should be equipped properly.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The player doesn't need to regard armor Defense for this battle, as all of Jenova's attacks are magical. As all of Jenova's damaging attacks are Fire-elemental, equipping a Fire Ring or Fire Armlet to at least one party member makes the battle impossible to lose. Elemental Materia linked to a Fire-elemental Materia in armor, or the Dragon Armlet also help.

The Ribbon from the Temple of the Ancients and the Ribbon from Gaea's Cliff are available to protect against Silence, and the player can also use Added Effect paired with Seal.

Jenova∙DEATH is vulnerable to the Paralyze component of Cloud's Cross-slash Limit Break, as well as Dazers won at the Sleeping Forest from Boundfat.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

The dot (・) is an interpunct used in Japanese to indicate that a full proper noun is two separate words. It appears in Final Fantasy VII in the boss names of Jenova's parts and Sephiroth's boss forms.

The names of Jenova∙BIRTH, Jenova∙LIFE, and Jenova∙DEATH are alluded to Saṃsāra, the repeating cycle of birth, life, and death in Buddhism.
