90% of teens today would die if Myspace was completely destroyed. If you are one of the 10% that would be laughing, copy and paste this to your signature

Well, you just have to get lucky enough to defeat him before he launches you out of the battle.

It helps to play around with some of the weaker enemies and let them charge your Limit gauge. Then you can quickly beat him before you get screwed.

Does using Phoenix Downs on him not work?

Phoenix Down may miss, use an X-Potion to be sure.

An X-Potion won't kill the Battle Square version of the Ghost Ship outright. They normally have 6600 HP, but in the Battle Square that's doubled to 13200. The most damage an X-Potion can cause is 9999.

Phoenix Down or the Life spell can OHKO them, but it only works 25% of the time. Life2 or an Elixir will OHKO them with 100% accuracy, making that the best option.

I always use White Wind on it for an instant win.

4x cut ftw

Okay...

How would that work? Max damage would be 9999 (HP of caster) and as 1whoistornapart said, Battle Square's Ghost Ship has 13200 HP.

Haven't tried it myself, but I believe Jukain is correct. There's no aspect of White Wind which would cause instant death, and it can't break the damage barrier. In all fairness though, X-Potions and White Wind would dispatch the non-Battle Square version handily ;)

Another thing to consider is that in order to get the most BP possible you'll want to get All Materia broken on the last round, in which case 4x-Cut, White Wind and Life2 wouldn't be an option. Meteorain should get the job done if your weapon isn't broken, otherwise use an Elixir, you can always get more.

In case the OP doesn't know, you can get any effect from the reels you want by pressing square to freeze them. Get the least detrimental effects on every round before the last one to be in the best shape possible. The effect of the last reel is the only one that makes a significant impact on your total BP.
