Phalaris is an enemy in Final Fantasy XV fought in Chapter 15. It appears in the Crestholm Channels maze and as a boss during the Cursed Legend sidequest for Randolph; it is the third foe Randolph requests felled after bennu and malbodoom and yields a Soul Saber one-handed sword for quest completion.

Bestiary[edit | edit source]

While the kujata is a herbivore at heart, alternate habitats necessitate dietary compromises. The blue kujata swallows living prey whole, letting its multiple stomachs do the work of gradually killing and then digesting game.

This phalaris, seen on the Causcherry Plains of Duscae, is an omnivorous relative of the kujata given to devouring its prey whole before killing it. Local lore tells of men being eaten alive, their screams ringing out into the night.

Battle[edit | edit source]

Phalaris is a large bovine that is weak to greatswords. It is not possible to defend against phalaris's hoof stomps, and it can roll on its back, crushing everything on its way. It charge attack with its horns lowered can be blocked and parried.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The player should roll constantly to try and avoid its hoof attacks and attack its hind legs, hopefully triggering blindside links with allies (who can equip Friendship Bands, if available). Prompto's Piercer Technique is effective in reducing the phalaris's armor. The player can also character-swap to Prompto to attack from afar. The player can also play as Noctis and use the Star of the Rogue while staying out of the bovine's range. The player can attack its hind legs with a greatsword (the Iron Duke obtained from Randolph's previous quest works well) and then dodge away to avoid damage. The player can point-warp to the tower to get out of the phalaris's attack range.
