  1. Double Tail Swipe: A counterattack used primarily by Behemoth King. The attack varies based on Zack’s position and distance.
  2. Heave: If Zack is at a distance or attempting to heal, Behemoth King may charge and execute a quick claw attack.

To effectively defeat Behemoth King, consider the following strategy:

  1. Initiate with Strong Attacks: Start the fight by using powerful materia such as Costly Punch or Graviga to reduce Behemoth King’s HP by nearly half. These can be obtained through Materia Fusion (Dash + Gravity) or purchased for 15000 Gil from Bone Village Commerce Shop.
  2. Dispel Materia: After weakening Behemoth King, use Dispel Materia to prevent its regeneration of over 7000 HP. For even more effectiveness, upgrade to Dispel Materia Blade (18 AP) to both debuff and damage Behemoth King.
  3. Dodge and Attack: Utilize dodging techniques to avoid Behemoth King’s Double Tail Swipe and Heave attacks. Focus on aggressive attacks while dodging its moves.
  4. Healing Materia: Equip healing materia like Cure or Regen to mitigate Behemoth King’s powerful attacks and sustain Zack’s health throughout the battle.
  5. Mitigate Comet Damage: Behemoth King’s Comet attack poses a significant threat. Increase Zack’s HP through Materia Fusion, particularly with HP Up, to withstand Comet attacks effectively. This strategy can help you survive the battle and emerge victorious against Behemoth King.
