Rogue Behemoth is a boss in Final Fantasy XV fought during the The Perfect Cup sidequest. The Rogue Behemoth can only be fought if the player chose "Meat" as their answer to Gladiolus's question of what to add to Cup Noodles. The other answers will send the player after a Rogue Karlabos or a zu egg instead.

Battle[edit | edit source]
The behemoth is fought on the wide open plains of Leide. It is weak to greatswords and shields, but doesn't have any elemental weaknesses. It runs fast and frequently makes great leaps, getting away from those who try to attack it from behind fr blindside-strikes.
Rogue behemoth only uses physical attacks. The attack where it rises onto its hindlegs to slam down with its paws can be blocked and parried. It swipes with its colossal claws at those in front of it. It can pirouette fast to swing its powerful tail to hit everyone in its vicinity. The rocks in the battlefield can be used for point-warping. The player can attack the behemoth's head, legs, body and tail separately. Breaking the head makes it more vulnerable to damage.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
The player can wait for the parry prompt for when the behemoth rises to its hindlegs to deal strong damage. Warp-striking from a distance may be able to topple it over, making the behemoth vulnerable and briefly exposed for damage, though its vulnerability state is short. Though the behemoth tends to leap a lot, it is still worthwhile to attack it from behind, and hopefully trigger some powerful blindside links. Gearing for high vitality with equipment and food buffs helps.
Etymology[edit | edit source]
Behemoth is a beast mentioned in Job 40:15–24. In addition to mythological creatures, it is likened to elephants, hippos, rhinos, and bison. Metaphorically, the term behemoth denotes "an extremely large or powerful entity."
