So the only way you'll help me is if I take you down?
This battle was overhauled in the day one patch. In 1.00 the camera is fixed behind the player, making it hard to see what Noctis is doing.

Battle[edit | edit source]
Leviathan moves swiftly through the waters, often coming up in a fury to attack Noctis. She will fire fast water projectiles that deal damage if not avoided. Initially, the battle leaves the player with few means of dealing damage, but this sequence is short-lived, and ends after enough damage with warp-strikes is inflicted.
During the second sequence, Noctis can fly with the power of infinite Armiger and deals far more damage. Noctis now wields every royal arm, including the ones he hasn't obtained yet. Executing a complete combo has Noctis will finish using the same attack pattern he uses when finishing a combo with the Sword of the Father. Noctis's moves become warps, but as this is limited to the locations of his weapons, he cannot warp while sending his weapons to attack Leviathan, and instead moves normally.
It is impossible to lose this battle as Leviathan does not attack fast enough to damage Noctis before his HP fully regenerates. His HP increases drastically at this point as well.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
During the first sequence, the player must simply point-warp throughout the platforms to survive and evade Leviathan's attacks. When given the opportunity, the player should deal a damage with warp-strikes. The first sequence ends after dealing a certain and fairly minimal amount of damage to Leviathan.
In the second battle phase the player should hold down the attack button whenever Leviathan comes up, approach her and continuously lay into her, preferably locking onto her. Her water projectiles are fast, though they can be evaded if the player moves quickly and stays phased.
When Leviathan's health is depleted, the player should simply parry to defeat her.
Musical themes[edit | edit source]
The battle music for Leviathan's first phase is "The Hydraean's Wrath", and the music for the second phase is "Apocalypsis Aquarius", a version of "Apocalypsis Noctis".
