Am I supposed to know who you are?Rubicante
First battle Edit
Rubicante will cast Inferno on the party, which heals himself and deals a large amount of damage to the party (enough to knock out everyone except Cecil and possibly Kain). Rubicante only casts this when his cloak is open. He closes his cloak if Edge steals from him, during which he will resort to physical attacks.
Rubicante will counter-attack with Fira, so dealing a lot of damage in single attacks (such as Kain's Jump) would be a good way to go about the battle; additionally, having Kain and Cecil equipped with an Ice Shield or Ice Mail would effectively reduce the damage from Rubicante's Fire-based attacks. For reasons unspecified, Quake will not trigger the Fira counterattack; should Rubicante's cloak be closed, this should be Rydia's spell of choice.
Rubicante counters with Blizzara on himself after a summon is used, which will heal him if he is wrapped in his cloak, but will backfire if his cloak is open. A few well-timed casts of Shiva or Dragon will easily defeat him.
