What am I to do with those who oppose me? But show them death!Vayne, while preparing Mach Wave
Vayne is a final boss in Final Fantasy XII. This is Vayne's first form, before gaining the help of nethicite and transforming into Vayne Novus. The party fights Vayne on board the Sky Fortress Bahamut.
As the final boss, Vayne does not have an in-game bestiary entry, but in the official guides he is listed after Doctor Cid. In the BradyGames guide to the PlayStation 2 version, the boss is called Vayne Solidor.

Vayne bears no weapon, opting to use his fist in the same style as a Monk would, dealing moderate damage to a single character. (Vayne's Pummel ability is used by Monks in Final Fantasy Tactics.) As soon as Vayne has lost 50% of his HP, a scene will play and he will start to chain his attacks. He will use Mach Wave to do over 800 damage. When he has 25% of his HP left, he will use Force of Will, which can do more than 1,600 damage.
When defeated Vayne transforms into Vayne Novus with the help of Larsa's nethicite.
Protect/Protectga are useful. Vayne is not immune to Oil, so the player can exploit it to spam Firaga, dealing tons of damage. This is even more powerful if the caster equips the Flame Staff or Burning Bow. As with Gabranth, Vayne also lacks an immunity to Silence.
