Golbez and Fusoya will fight the Mysterious Girl, who has summoned Asura at the start of the battle. Asura cannot be defeated and their attacks must be focused the Mysterious Girl. She will attack them with strong magic such as Flare, Holy, and even Meteor. Fusoya and Golbez must use spells like Firaga and Flare on her while withstanding her and Asura's attacks. Whenever either of them are weakened, Fusoya should use Curaga or Curaja. If Golbez is ever KOed, it would be best to revive him with Arise.

The fight is nearly the same as the last, but the Mysterious Girl has now instead summoned Leviathan. Leviathan will use Tidal Wave even as the Mysterious Girl uses the strong spells she had from the previous fight. The same strategy for the first battle fought in the crater still works, but Fusoya should focus more on healing both him and Golbez. Leviathan's Tidal Wave is strong, and it can KO one of them if they have already took a lot of damage from the Mysterious Girl.

After fighting Odin, the party will then face the Mysterious Girl. Golbez, Ceodore, Rosa, Rydia, and Edge will fight her. The Mysterious Girl still will not hesitate to use strong magic like Flare on anyone. Ceodore should use Awaken at the start of the fight and use it to its full potential before the effects run out. Rydia and Edge's best strategy is to use the Band ability Inferno, which will do around 1,500 - 2,000 damage to the Mysterious Girl. Golbez's best magic to use against her is Flare. Because Rosa is the only healer that joins the fight, she should use healing spells every turn. If she has learnt Curaja from Kain's Tale, she should cast it on everybody. Another alternative method is to search for a band as Rydia or Rosa and select the others magic command, this will cause holy burst which also does tons of damage, and if you do this, you should make Edge the main healer with his heal pill and have Ceodore use Cura or Curaga when needed. When the Mysterious Girl nears death, she will attempt to raise her power so she can cast Meteor. This is the party's chance to kill her quickly before she attacks, which should not take a lot of damage to do. If the party ''isn't'' quick enough in killing her, she may potentially summon Asura, Leviathan or Bahamut to aid her or hurt the party, which Rydia will unhappily comment on.<br clear="right" />

Bahamut will be summoned at the start of the fight. The Mysterious Girl will use Black Hole before Megaflare with no turns in-between, making Reflect useless against Megaflare. Reflect should still give some protection against the Mysterious Girl's magic. If Rydia defeated Asura and Leviathan on the True Moon Subterrane and learnt how to cast them, then they will appear during the fight to reason with Bahamut. He will eventually come back to his senses and fight back against the Mysterious Girl.
 
   
==Related Enemies==

== Battle ==
  +
=== Palom's Tale ===
*[[Maenad (Enemy)]]
 
  +
The battle for the most part is scripted. [[Palom/Gameplay|Palom]] and [[Leonora]] should use Particle Bomb until the Mysterious Girl calls [[Shiva (The After Years boss)|Shiva]] to defeat them.
  +
  +
=== Edge's Tale ===
  +
As in Palom's Tale, the Mysterious Girl cannot be defeated. The party should attack until she summons [[Ifrit (The After Years boss)|Ifrit]], and the party will flee from her.
  +
  +
=== Porom's Tale ===
  +
[[Porom/Gameplay|Porom]] will be assisted by the [[Elder of Mysidia]]. He has access to all [[White Magic (Final Fantasy IV)|White Magic]] but [[Holy (ability)|Holy]]. Like Palom's fight, this is mostly scripted. Porom should equip a bow and the Elder cast [[Haste (ability)|Haste]] and [[Berserk (ability)|Berserk]] on her to increase her damage output and speed up the fight, which ends with the Mysterious Girl summoning [[Ramuh (The After Years boss)|Ramuh]] to defeat them.
  +
  +
=== Lunarian's Tale - Impact Crater ===
  +
[[Golbez/Gameplay|Golbez]] and [[Fusoya/Gameplay|Fusoya]] will fight the Mysterious Girl, who has summoned [[Asura (The After Years boss)|Asura]] at the start of the battle. Asura cannot be defeated and their attacks must be focused on the Mysterious Girl. She will attack them with strong magic and Binding Glare, which inflicts [[Paralysis|Paralyze]].
  +
  +
Fusoya should cast Haste on himself and Golbez and [[Slow (ability)|Slow]] on the Mysterious Girl, and place them both in the back row to reduce damage from Asura's physical blows. Asura's presence means the Mysterious Girl is treated as being in the back [[row]], reducing damage from physical attacks, so magic is most effective. Use level three magic of any element from both Fusoya and Golbez, healing when needed.
  +
  +
=== Lunarian's Tale - Crystal Palace ===
  +
The fight is nearly the same as the last, but the Mysterious Girl has now instead summoned [[Leviathan (The After Years boss)|Leviathan]]. Leviathan will use Tidal Wave while the Mysterious Girl uses the strong spells she had from the previous fight. Tidal Wave is strong, and it can KO a party member if they have already took a lot of damage. Eventually the Mysterious Girl will cast [[Osmose (ability)|Osmose]] on Leviathan two turns in a row, signalling she is preparing to cast [[Meteor (ability)#Final Fantasy IV|Meteor]].
  +
  +
The same strategy for the first battle fought in the crater still works, but Fusoya should focus more on healing both him and Golbez, and the fight will go quicker without Asura buffing the Mysterious Girl. Haste and Slow help and [[Shell (ability)|Shell]] is also helpful for reducing damage, if Fusoya has a free turn from healing to cast it.
  +
  +
=== Baron Castle ===
  +
The party the player is given consists of Golbez, [[Ceodore Harvey|Ceodore]], [[Rosa Joanna Farrell/Gameplay|Rosa]], [[Rydia/Gameplay|Rydia]], and [[Edge Geraldine/Gameplay|Edge]]. The Mysterious Girl retains her powerful magic from previous fights, and can summon [[Bahamut (The After Years boss)|Bahamut]] to use [[Megaflare|Mega Flare]], dealing heavy damage. Though Bahamut will not remain, she can summon him several times if the fight is long enough, and she has substantially higher HP than in previous fights.
  +
  +
Ceodore should use Awaken at the start of the fight and use it to its full potential before the effects run out. Rydia and Edge's best strategy is to use the [[Band (The After Years)|Band]] ability [[Inferno (ability)|Inferno]], which will do around 1,500–2,000 damage to the Mysterious Girl. Golbez's best magic to use against her is [[Black Magic (The After Years)#Flare|Flare]], if he has learned it. Because Rosa is the only healer that joins the fight, she should use healing spells every turn. If she has learned [[White Magic (The After Years)#Curaja|Curaja]] from Kain's Tale, she should cast it on everybody.

Another method is to use Rydia and Rosa's [[Band (The After Years)#Holy Burst|Holy Burst]] Band, with Edge using Healing Pill and Ceodore healing when needed. Ceodore and Rosa can also Band together to use Divine Heal on the party, granting them Shell status to further protect them if the fight occurs during a [[Moon Phase|Full Moon]].

When the Mysterious Girl nears death, she will attempt to raise her power so she can cast Meteor. This is the party's chance to kill her quickly before she attacks, which should not take a lot of damage to do. If the party isn't quick enough in killing her, she may summon Asura, Leviathan or Bahamut to aid her.

Bahamut will be summoned at the start of the fight, and this time the player must target him. Rydia must be in the party or he will begin the battle with Mega Flare, killing the party instantly.

The Mysterious Girl uses her magic as in previous battles, and has gained the more powerful [[Bio (ability)|Bio]], [[Quake (ability)|Quake]] and [[Tornado (ability)|Tornado]] spells. Bahamut will count down to Mega Flare each turn. As the countdown ends the Mysterious Girl will cast [[Black Hole (ability)|Black Hole]] to remove the party's buffs, including [[Shell (status)|Shell]] and [[Reflect (status)|Reflect]]. Thus, the player must simply have their party at a high enough level to survive Mega Flare directly.

In the 3D version, one should keep Rosa, Ceodore, or Porom alive. (Rosa, or Porom are suggested because at that point they should have learned all White Magic spells). The party shouldn't attack when Bahamut starts counting because the attack bar needs to be filled with white to have enough time to cast Reflect. Right after the Maenad casts [[Black Hole (ability)|Black Hole]] the party can cast reflect, reflecting Mega Flare. Having Reflect on before Black Hole can reflect the Maenad's spells.

If the player defeated Asura and Leviathan earlier in the Subterrane and reacquired them for Rydia, they will appear during the fight to call out to Bahamut, and he will return to his senses and attack the Mysterious Girl. After the fight, Rydia will regain him as a summon. If the player did not acquire both Asura and Leviathan, Bahamut must be killed and is lost and the Mysterious Girl will be defeated with him.

Battle[edit | edit source]

Palom's Tale[edit | edit source]

The battle for the most part is scripted. Palom and Leonora should use Particle Bomb until the Mysterious Girl calls Shiva to defeat them.

Edge's Tale[edit | edit source]

As in Palom's Tale, the Mysterious Girl cannot be defeated. The party should attack until she summons Ifrit, and the party will flee from her.

Porom's Tale[edit | edit source]

Porom will be assisted by the Elder of Mysidia. He has access to all White Magic but Holy. Like Palom's fight, this is mostly scripted. Porom should equip a bow and the Elder cast Haste and Berserk on her to increase her damage output and speed up the fight, which ends with the Mysterious Girl summoning Ramuh to defeat them.

Lunarian's Tale - Impact Crater[edit | edit source]

Golbez and Fusoya will fight the Mysterious Girl, who has summoned Asura at the start of the battle. Asura cannot be defeated and their attacks must be focused on the Mysterious Girl. She will attack them with strong magic and Binding Glare, which inflicts Paralyze.

Fusoya should cast Haste on himself and Golbez and Slow on the Mysterious Girl, and place them both in the back row to reduce damage from Asura's physical blows. Asura's presence means the Mysterious Girl is treated as being in the back row, reducing damage from physical attacks, so magic is most effective. Use level three magic of any element from both Fusoya and Golbez, healing when needed.

Lunarian's Tale - Crystal Palace[edit | edit source]

The fight is nearly the same as the last, but the Mysterious Girl has now instead summoned Leviathan. Leviathan will use Tidal Wave while the Mysterious Girl uses the strong spells she had from the previous fight. Tidal Wave is strong, and it can KO a party member if they have already took a lot of damage. Eventually the Mysterious Girl will cast Osmose on Leviathan two turns in a row, signalling she is preparing to cast Meteor.

The same strategy for the first battle fought in the crater still works, but Fusoya should focus more on healing both him and Golbez, and the fight will go quicker without Asura buffing the Mysterious Girl. Haste and Slow help and Shell is also helpful for reducing damage, if Fusoya has a free turn from healing to cast it.

Baron Castle[edit | edit source]

The party the player is given consists of Golbez, Ceodore, Rosa, Rydia, and Edge. The Mysterious Girl retains her powerful magic from previous fights, and can summon Bahamut to use Mega Flare, dealing heavy damage. Though Bahamut will not remain, she can summon him several times if the fight is long enough, and she has substantially higher HP than in previous fights.

Ceodore should use Awaken at the start of the fight and use it to its full potential before the effects run out. Rydia and Edge's best strategy is to use the Band ability Inferno, which will do around 1,500–2,000 damage to the Mysterious Girl. Golbez's best magic to use against her is Flare, if he has learned it. Because Rosa is the only healer that joins the fight, she should use healing spells every turn. If she has learned Curaja from Kain's Tale, she should cast it on everybody.

Another method is to use Rydia and Rosa's Holy Burst Band, with Edge using Healing Pill and Ceodore healing when needed. Ceodore and Rosa can also Band together to use Divine Heal on the party, granting them Shell status to further protect them if the fight occurs during a Full Moon.

When the Mysterious Girl nears death, she will attempt to raise her power so she can cast Meteor. This is the party's chance to kill her quickly before she attacks, which should not take a lot of damage to do. If the party isn't quick enough in killing her, she may summon Asura, Leviathan or Bahamut to aid her.

The Depths[edit | edit source]

Bahamut will be summoned at the start of the fight, and this time the player must target him. Rydia must be in the party or he will begin the battle with Mega Flare, killing the party instantly.

The Mysterious Girl uses her magic as in previous battles, and has gained the more powerful Bio, Quake and Tornado spells. Bahamut will count down to Mega Flare each turn. As the countdown ends the Mysterious Girl will cast Black Hole to remove the party's buffs, including Shell and Reflect. Thus, the player must simply have their party at a high enough level to survive Mega Flare directly.

In the 3D version, one should keep Rosa, Ceodore, or Porom alive. (Rosa, or Porom are suggested because at that point they should have learned all White Magic spells). The party shouldn't attack when Bahamut starts counting because the attack bar needs to be filled with white to have enough time to cast Reflect. Right after the Maenad casts Black Hole the party can cast reflect, reflecting Mega Flare. Having Reflect on before Black Hole can reflect the Maenad's spells.

If the player defeated Asura and Leviathan earlier in the Subterrane and reacquired them for Rydia, they will appear during the fight to call out to Bahamut, and he will return to his senses and attack the Mysterious Girl. After the fight, Rydia will regain him as a summon. If the player did not acquire both Asura and Leviathan, Bahamut must be killed and is lost and the Mysterious Girl will be defeated with him.
