It is always better to analyze your opponent than directly rush and die. We have pointed out Health Pool, Resistance, and Attack Patterns. It is essential to learn about them, as we will mention Attack Patterns in our strategy to defeat Behemoth King. Here are the stats & attacks of Behemoth King in Crisis Core FFVII Reunion:


  • Level: 41
  • Health: 118,780 (576,430 on Hard Difficulty)
  • MP: 321
  • ATK: 62
  • MAG: 52
  • VIT: 14
  • SPR: 11
  • LCK: 39
  • EXP: 3,280
  • Gil: 96
  • Resistance: None


  • Double Tail Swipe: Behemoth King will mainly use this as a counterattack. However, his attacks vary on your position and distance.
  • Heave: If you are at a distance, trying to heal. It is likely possible that Behemoth King will come at you and make a quick claw attack.
  • Quake: It is an unavoidable attack that deals Area-of-Effect damage. However, you can decrease the damage by increasing your SPR.
  • Comet: It is another unavoidable AoE attack, dealing damage to Zack.

That concludes all the attacks Behemoth King will use during the battle. It is also essential to know that he also uses Regen, which allows him to regenerate 7000+ hp. However, that can be avoided by using Dispel Materia or Dispel Materia blade hit. It debuffs Behemoth King preventing him from getting his Regen buff.

Behemoth King Fight Strategy

To start the fight and gain the upper hand, you can use one of the best materia, such as Costly Punch or Graviga, which will almost halve the hp of Behemoth King.

You can achieve this through the Materia Fusion by fusing Dash and Gravity. Moreover, you can purchase it too for 15000 Gil from Bone Village Commerce Shop. Removing around 50 percent hp of Behemoth King will inevitably give you an advantage.

You will still have work to do even after depleting so much hp. That will be to use Dispel Materia on Behemoth King, so it’ll not generate a tremendous 7000+ amount of hp.

A better upgrade is Dispel Materia Blade, which requires 18 AP. A great way to restore AP is using Soma Drop, which can be obtained from Shinra Building Shop for 200 Gil. Dispel Blade will not only debuff but will also damage Behemoth King.

Now, you will have to use the most basic move, Dodge. Therefore, You must dodge Behemoth King Double Tail Swipe and start spamming your attack buttons on him instead.

Moreover, he will also attack with Heave if you move at a distance and tries to use some Materia. Be sure to carry Materia for healing like Cure or Regen. Behemoth King attacks are not to be taken lightly.

The only thing that makes Behemoth King dangerous is Comet. You can tank him by increasing your hp. Furthermore, in the Reddit Post from user ggggyyy211, another user WatcherJake commented that you could improve your hp with Materia Fusion and prevent one Comet attack from Behemoth King. The Materia Fusion to increase your hp is HP Up.

Wrap Up

The most challenging part there would be to collect all Goddess Keys. However, The Behemoth King fight will be easy if you are familiar with the Materia and have the right upgrades. Moreover, if you have unlocked Magic Pot, it will aid you by summoning magical entities and some unique items.
