Juggernaut is a special enemy in Final Fantasy X, which is created in the Species Conquest of the Monster Arena after five of each Ruminant-type fiend has been captured. It shares the same model as the Grendel.
Juggernaut is an imposing beast with four horns sprouting from its back.
With high Strength, Defense, and magical immunity, it can be tough work to defeat. Being an armored creature possessing a high resistance to Armor Break means that without the Piercing ability, weapons will have little effect.
Its normal attack can inflict heavy damage, while Crush Spike is an Instant Kill. Like the lesser fiends from this species, Juggernaut will often release a Salvo, a fireball, on the entire party. This move requires one round of charging which gives at least one character time to cast NulBlaze or switch to an appropriate armor.
Juggernaut is a key to the stat maxing process, as he drops Strength Spheres 87% of the time. Juggernaut drops weapons with Strength +% abilities and armor with Defense +% abilities, Strength +20% and Defense +20% being fixed abilities.
While Juggernaut is not immune to Armor Break, it will only work 5% of the time. A Frag Grenade or Auron's Banishing Blade Overdrive work 100% of the time, and so are more effective to break its Full Break resistance.
Juggernaut is an English word that refers to "a huge, powerful, and overwhelming force or institution." It is derived from the Sanskrit word Jagannātha, which means "lord of the universe."
