Battle[edit | edit source]

The Zaghnal can appear alone, with another Zaghnal, or with a Forked Cat. When it loses half of its total HP, it stands up on its hind legs and fully restores its health; the Zaghnal also removes any debuffs it has been afflicted with. In this form, the Zaghnal gains access to the powerful Sunder attack, a powerful physical ability. The Zaghnal is weak against Fire.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Ravagers are effective when it comes to filling this enemy's chain gauge. If Serah and Noel are strong enough, they can begin the battle by applying debuffs to it in the Saboteur role. When the necessary debuffs have been applied, they can then shift to an offensive paradigm to finish the Zaghnal off.

Paradigm Pack[edit | edit source]

The Zaghnal is a Strength-based strike Ravager; it is only effective against the surprisingly small list of enemies that are strong against Magic but weak to elemental damage, such as the Malebranche and Wladislaus. Like the Grand Behemoth, the Zaghnal has access to two types of elemental Blitzes, thus it is superior to the Tabasco Toad and Blue Chocobo, who only have access to one, as well as the Koboldroid Yang, who does not have access to any. However, of these tamable enemies, the Zaghnal possesses the lowest Strength; any other Ravager that has been buffed with Enthunder and uses Sparkstrike can easily surpass it and its Electro Blitz attack, for Sparkstrike only uses one ATB segment in comparison to Electro Blitz's two.
