Battle[edit | edit source]

Rapps can be dangerous as the party does not have access to Materia. It has a powerful Aero3 attack that cannot be reflected and will do approximately 1,500 damage. Rapps's other attacks are two physicals, of which Scorpion's Tail may inflict Poison and is an attack that Rapps will sometimes use twice in one turn. Rapps is one of the few bosses in Final Fantasy VII vulnerable to Gravity attacks.

It is advantageous to fight Rapps early in the game if the player is running out of money, as it drops plenty gil.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Rapps's attacks will quickly charge the characters' Limit Breaks, and a few Limit Breaks will defeat him. If Cloud has unlocked Meteorain, a single use will either devastate Rapps's HP or kill him outright. T/S Bombs can inflict a large amount of damage to Rapps if used at the beginning of the battle. Barret's Mindblow can be used to blast away its MP, so Rapps cannot use Aero3. The Sadness status effect can mitigate damage from Aero3, but it will slow the rate at which the characters receive Limit Breaks. Aeris' Seal Evil freezes Rapps in place allowing the party to finish him off.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Rapps's name is intended to be similar to Aps, changing only the first character of the Japanese. Replacing the character with (ra?) may be a reference to the magic tier system, where "ra" denotes a second version.
