Bahamut Fury Detailed Strategy And Tips

The Strategy (Image by eXputer)
  • Equip Barrier or Regen Materia before the Bahamut Fury boss fight for better defense.
  • Avoid cheesing the fight with powerful materia like Energy or Costly Punch.
  • A call from Aerith during a cutscene boosts her appearance in the DMW, increasing the odds of beneficial effects.
  • Aerith’s Limit Break, Healing Wave, granted via DMW, fully heals, restores MP, and AP, removes status ailments, and provides immunity.
  • Use the Jump materia to evade Bahamut Fury’s Arm swing attack and deal additional damage.
  • Keep Barrier or Regen materia refreshed for a defensive play style.
  • Unleash powerful attacks during Bahamut Fury’s Exaflare charge-up phase to cancel the ultimate attack.
  • If overpowered materia like Costly Punch is available, consider using it for a swift victory

The rest of the boss fights, and other side mission secret bosses shouldn’t prove to be too much trouble for you. We also recommend checking out the Materia Fusion List, which will allow you to craft the powerful materia we just listed here. Furthermore, if you can successfully acquire the Magic Pot early on in the game, using that Limit Break might give you an edge since it can reward you with some special items.

If you’re a Trophy Hunter looking to 100 percent the game, we encourage going through our detailed guides on both the Mako Recovery and Good Match For Aerith Trophy. But for now, though, this wraps up our guide on how you can defeat Bahamut Fury in Chapter 4 of Crisis Core Final Fantasy VII Reunion.
