Parandus is a boss in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII fought by Lightning and Fang in the Clavis Chamber of the Temple Ruins, located in the Dead Dunes, from Day 7 onwards. Defeating it concludes the main quest of the Dead Dunes area. The Grendel and Parandus are based on the model of the Raspatil from Final Fantasy XIII-2. The major differences are that Raspatil has more arms and a flesh tail.

Battle[edit | edit source]

Parandus uses the same battle style as Grendel, but is more aggressive and powerful. Parandus uses Absolute Barrier to buff itself with Protect and Shell and to become more resistant to elemental damage and debuffs. It then uses Breath of Rancor to inflict Lightning with Pain, Fog, Deprotect and Deshell. After 3–5 minutes, Parandus starts using Séance and then Gloria Mundi to deal major damage.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The player should equip Ghostly and Preta Hoods to reduce damage and use wind-based attacks to stagger Parandus, and take the chance to use Heavy Slash or Beat Down to deal 5000–10,000+ damage.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Parandus is Latin future passive participle (gerundive) of parō ("I prepare").
