Ochu is an enemy in Final Fantasy XIII and mark of Cie'th Stone Mission 39. It appears in three places: a regular enemy in Aggra's Pasture in the Archylte Steppe guarding a treasure orb after triggering a cutscene with the Microchus nearby, and twice in the Faultwarrens as a mission mark and a regular enemy. In all three instances, Microchus accompany it.

Battle[edit | edit source]
Ochu is immune to preemptive strikes, rendering Deceptisol useless. Its basic physical attack deals moderate Earth-elemental damage and knocks its target into the air. Screech deals high damage to the party over a large radius and can remove status enhancements, while buffing Microchus with Bravery. Seed Dispersal summons additional Microchus, and is used after a portion of the Ochu's HP is removed. Pollen fully heals nearby Microchus and removes status ailments, while damaging the party, removing status enhancements, and inflicting Poison and Slow.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Ochu may cause some problems for those unadvanced in the Crystarium. One strategy is to start the battle with COM/RAV/SYN or COM/MED/SYN and let the Synergist cast at least Haste and Enfire on everyone. The party can then switch to COM/RAV/RAV or COM/MED/RAV.
The Commando should attack the Ochu and when it uses Screech, the party should switch to MED/SEN/MED, and let the Sentinel take the hits while the Medics heal. The party can then switch to COM/RAV/RAV or COM/MED/RAV. When Ochu is defeated, the Microchus should be easy to handle.
