I never thought of that; the final boss is fond of Dk-Force, and I saw this happening easily:
Robot uses Excalibur! 1000 damage! Final boss uses Dk-Force! 800 damage! ---- Final Boss uses Dk-Force! 800 damage! Slain!
You know FFL3 lets you use inventory items in combat right? Including Elixirs? I suspect that might have made things easier for you...
As for FFL2, I'm up to Venus (irony!). No, I don't need advice; I merely need to be less busy with other projects.
What could be more important than playing arbitrary challenge modes of a 20-year old game? ;)

Yes, I do.
I also know that if he uses Dk-Force again, you're again one hit away from death. --- Nagas on a plane! ^_^

Sorry, I interpreted the "----" in your hypothetical battle as "several rounds later."
Anyhow, yes, you will sometimes die fighting Xagor; IIRC he can critical with Dk-Force, which means instant death. But it didn't take too many attempts, and getting lucky is always a big part of single-character games anyhow.

True, true; in solo FFMQ's first non-tutorial battle, you MUST get a critical hit on the first turn, or else you'll be slaughtered --and even then victory is not guaranteed!
And then you must do the same thing AGAIN, at which point you reach level reach elvel 2 and the first "dungeon" is manageable.

I think I'll have to try FFMQ sometime.
It's funny, I really don't like the core FF games at all. But I like anything I've played with the Final Fantasy title appended on to ship more units, and I like most of Square's other older stuff. So it would be interesting to see whether I take to MQ or not.

I was up to the third world when, to gather data, I sharked the hero to max exp... and only then realized it would affect every save I had x_x
So I had to start over...
(levelup formula for level x, btw, is 13(x^3)+61(x^2).)
EDIT: To clarify, the sharking was in a new game that was NOT planned to be saved; the only code I'd ever use in a challenge game is the one necessary to establish the challenge (here, the ally petrifier). --- Nagas on a plane! ^_^
