The Reaver is an enemy that appears in Final Fantasy XIII-2.



When it receives enough damage, the Reaver stands on its hind legs and fully restores its HP. In its bipedal state, it can use the Fira spell to deal heavy damage.


The Tri-disaster paradigm (RAV/RAV/RAV) can rapidly increase the Reaver's chain gauge. Once it is staggered, Serah and Noel can switch to the Cerberus paradigm (COM/COM/COM) to deal as much damage to it as possible before the stagger ends. Casting Poison on the Reaver can make battling it easier.

Reaver is an archaic term that means "to rob, plunder, or steal."


  • Reavers make a cameo appearance in the Archylte Steppe, a special area in Final Fantasy Airborne Brigade. They are common enemies that are defeated as soon as they are encountered.
