    Well... this has sure gone a long way; looking at this (originally) crappy FAQ
    made me sick. Not to mention a certain person was opposed to some stuff in the
    original version, so here it is... I've removed my stupid attitude which showed
    throughout much of the FAQ, as well as corrected some things. I removed all the
    useless filler, took out most of the lists besides the enemies (Devin has those
    in his guide), and overall turned it into a much better piece of work. But you
    can't blame me, since all of us are terrible in our first six months of writing
    or so. I was no different. =P
    
    Anyway, I'd like to drop a note on how I'm gonna run things in this guide. I've
    got the introduction, legal disclaimer, and contact rules first, which you can
    skip if you want, then some info on the characters. Even a boss FAQ needs info
    on the characters, you know. So after that, then comes the meat and bones of the
    FAQ itself, the boss guide. Once you're done reading through that, you'll meet
    up with the enemy list, which has now been combined with the steal list and been
    formatted far better. So that's basically it. Have fun reading; this guide is
    now a HELL of a lot better.

    You are NOT permitted to put this FAQ on your site without my permission first.
    All you have to do is email me or IM me saying you want this FAQ on your site,
    then you can tell me your site and the chance is high that I'll let you. But if
    you put this FAQ on your site without my permission I swear you will regret it.
    If I let you, not ONE word should be changed from this FAQ! NOT ONE! Got it?
    Good. Also, make sure that no money is involved. If you want this FAQ to be sold
    on eBay, then just forget about it, man. And don't sell this guide either, or
    pay people to use it, or you'll be in such big trouble you don't want to think.
    
    Another little note is that I will not have this guide hosted on many other web
    sites besides GameNotOver, GameFAQs, IGN, and Neoseeker. You need full-on
    permission if it's not one of the four above sites. I am sick of people ripping
    me off (I have been ripped off three times in the past), so if I don't like
    your site, I won't let my guide be posted on it. I am sorry, but this is how it
    has to be. If you ask politely and I like your site, you will definitely have
    the luck of getting it up there. Thank you very much.

    Oh, and also, rules for contacting me. Those are important, ya? First of all,
    feel free to check out the stuff I've written on GameFAQs. Those include a
    guide for Mega Man 5, a few other Mega Man games, and tons of random PSX games.
    Honor to the PSX, yanno? Hopefully, that'll be added with awesome Legend of
    Zelda: Majora's Mask and Tales of Symphonia guides. As you might be able to
    guess, I'm a large RPG fan and writer.
    
    Alright, enough shameless advertisement about me. You can e-mail me if there is
    a question you wish to ask that hasn't been answered in the guide, but I REALLY
    don't want to bother answering questions that have already been done, answered,
    and done again in the guide, if it isn't too much trouble. Feel free to tell me
    if there's something I've forgotten, however.
    
    My e-mail address is richard_power1000 [at] yahoo [dot] com. Except, replace
    the [at] and spaces with a "@" symbol and the [dot] and spaces with a period; I
    have to write like that so I don't get a dozen spam bots e-mailing me and
    getting me viruses. Just be polite in the e-mail, don't talk like "omg wtf rich
    ur gides r t3h su><0rz & how du i beat grean cupu", and don't ask something
    that's already been answered in the guide, and I'll respond.
    
    And don't bother sending things like:
    
    "You friggin' idiot. Your guides suck, you suck, and everything about you
    sucks. DIE DIE DIE!"
    
    "BURN IN THE FLAMES OF HELL, YOU STUPID RETARD!!!"
    
    "What the hell did you think you were doing writing all that garbage, you piece

    I will laugh at such e-mails and delete them. So... if you're not just playing
    a friendly joke on me or something, don't bother with that crap cos I've been
    through with it too much.
    
    Okay, that's enough for that. My AIM name is rbeast288; sorry, I don't have MSN

    I can tell that you're glad we're past the introductory stuff, haha. But anyway
    the character info has been taken from the manual with the exception of the
    Cecil (Paladin) and FuSoYa descriptions.
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Cecil (Dark Knight):
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Introducion: The main character, commander of Baron Kingdom's fleet of military
    airships, the Red Wings. At the king's command, he masters the dark sword,
    which embodies the power of darkness. He maintains his humanity, however, and
    as a dark knight will not allow himself to accept Rosa's affection. But no one
    could ever understand the pain and suffering masked beneath his helmet.
    
    In Battle: Cecil's one good character as a dark knight. He starts out at Level
    10, with 200 HP, but is strong nonetheless, especially with his special command
    Dark, which sacrifices his own HP to attack. Unfortunately, he becomes a
    Paladin, so you can't use his Dark again.
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Cecil (Paladin):
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Introduction: Cecil, as a paladin, wielding the holy sword of the Mysidian
    Legend. The dark and evil once living in Cecil has left him, and his quest is
    to protect Rosa and save the world.
    
    In Battle: Cecil starts out on Level 1 with 600 HP, so he's sort of weak now,
    but once he gets some better levels, he's possibly the best character. His
    White magic kind of sucks, except for his Esuna and Exit, but it's helpful
    nonetheless, and his Cover command can make the difference between a victorious
    battle and a lost one. So he's extremely good.
    
    ~~~~~~
    Kain:
    ~~~~~~
    
    Introduction: Cecil's rival and best friend, who specializes in fighting from
    the air. Kain comes from a long line of dragoons and is a master of the spear.
    In Baron, where most soldiers are pressured to master the dark sword, he shuns
    the path of a dark knight and chooses instead to live as a dragoon. Aloof but
    compassionate, Kain is a proud warrior who secretly has feelings for Rosa.
    
    In Battle: Kain is also a super-duper fighter. He starts at Level 10 with 190
    HP, but it gets much better later. He cannot use any magic, but his Jump is
    extremely powerful, especially at the end of the game. So he's quite a useful
    character.
    
    ~~~~~~
    Rosa:
    ~~~~~~
    
    Introduction: Childhood friend of Cecil and Kain, and the heroine of the story.
    She follows in the footsteps of the mother, who once fought for Baron as a
    white mage. As her mother did for her father, Rosa studies white magic largely
    to help Cecil. Although she can be reserved at times, Rosa has a strong will
    and an adamant side to her that surprises even Cecil.
    
    In Battle: Rosa is better placed in the back row. She is an excellent character
    because of her white magic, and without her the game would be nigh impossible,
    if not impossible. Her Will stat starts low, but becomes VERY high to enable
    her to use extremely strong white magic. Her Pray ability is pretty useless,
    even in the end of the game, but she can do a great amount of damage in the end
    of the game. She starts out on Level 10 with only 150 HP, and never gets big
    strength or huge HP, but she's easily the best healer in the game and quite
    possibly the most useful character in the entire game.
    
    ~~~~~~~
    Rydia:
    ~~~~~~~
    
    Introduction: A girl who once lived peacefully with her mother in the
    summoners' village, Mist. Like her mother, she has the magical ability to
    summon beasts, and can cast black magic and white magic spells. Her honest,
    cheerful, and courageous personality lifts the party's spirits when the going
    gets rough.
    
    In Battle: Rydia has VERY low HP. When you get her, she starts off at Level 1
    with only 30 HP, and it goes up very little when she levels up, but besides
    this, Rydia's strength lies within Black magic. She will eventually...(there
    are gigantic spoilers here, so quickly read somewhere else unless you desire to
    have the plot totally spoiled), for some reason, lose the ability to use her
    white magic, and will join later as an adult. She's a fantastic character
    because of her amazing Black magic, and the ability to use summons, such as
    Titan, Leviatan, and Bahamut later.
    
    ~~~~~
    Cid:
    ~~~~~
    
    Introduction: Baron's chief airship engineer, who loves the skies and being
    around young people. Since he has just one daughter, he treats Cecil like a
    son.
    
    In Battle: Cid is one of the worst characters. He starts out at Level 20 with
    788 HP, much less than Cecil has at Level 20. Also, he can't really use magic,
    except his Study ability, which is the same effect as Scan. Plus he leaves your
    party when you reach the Dwarven Castle, so he's not that good, at all.
    
    ~~~~~~~~
    Edward:
    ~~~~~~~~
    
    Introduction: The prince of the desert kingdom Damcyan. He despises his royal
    status and prefers to live in freedom as a wandering bard. An attractive young
    man filled with sadness, his appearance reflects his gentle personality. His
    soft-heartedness, which stems from his benevolent nature, may be his downfall.
    
    In Battle: Edward is not all that great. His attack power is fairly low, his
    defense is low, he starts on Level 5 with a feeble 60 HP, he doesn't have one
    magic spell he can use, and hides from the fight when in critical status.
    However, he can use Sing to inflict status effects on his enemies, and his
    physical attack randomly does a status effect, but this "spoony bard" is not
    all that great at all.
    
    ~~~~~~~~
    Tellah:
    ~~~~~~~~
    
    Introduction: A powerful sage, renowned even among the highest mages. He
    controlled powerful magic when he was younger, but his magic prowess has faded.
    He seems unfriendly, but is a man of principle. Tellah has a mysterious
    connection to the mage kingdom of Mysidia.
    
    In Battle: When Tellah joins, he knows few magic spells, but is at Level 20
    with some good HP compared to Rydia's. He leaves soon but rejoins at Mt.
    Ordeals, and after Cecil becomes a Paladin, he learns all the spells he used to
    know. Now he is a fantastic member except for the fact he only has 90 MP.
    Still, he is worthy of being called the best party member until quite a while.
    
    ~~~~~~
    Yang:
    ~~~~~~
    
    Introduction: Leader of the monks of Fabul. Like many monks, he is polite and
    taciturn. Beneath his serene exterior lies an invincible soul. He uses his
    trademark elemental claws to decimate his opponents. Rumor has it that his
    skill is second to none.
    
    In Battle: Yang has GREAT HP. When he first joins, he has 300 HP at Level 10.
    Until he leaves in the middle of the game his HP is usually higher than Cecil's
    is. His Kick ability isn't useful at all as it does quite a small amount of
    damage to all enemies, but he's a great character because he can make his
    attacks elemental by equipping certain claws like Rosa and use Power to double
    the damage, and pretty much kill elemental enemies such as Cagnazzo. His Bear
    ability is okay, so he's quite a decent character.
    
    ~~~~~~
    Edge:
    ~~~~~~
    
    Introduction: A prince of the Eblan royal family, which has passed down the
    secrets and traditions of ninjutsu for generations. A confident and often brash
    man, he acts recklessly at times, but can also be affable and comedic.
    
    In Battle: When Edge joins, he's at Level 25 with a pathetic 790 HP, sometimes
    even less than Rydia if you're at about Level 32-33 when you get him. His HP is
    barely higher than Rosa's, but besides his HP, Edge is a spectacular character.
    His Ninja magic is extremely useful at certain parts of the game. His Throw
    ability's value cannot be calculated in the final boss fight, and his Steal
    ability is also extremely useful in the last fight. He's sort of average, but
    can be one of the best characters, especially in the end.
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Palom & Porom:
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Introduction: Apprentice mages who live in the mage kingdom of Mysidia. Palom
    studies to be a black mage, while Porom aspires to be a white mage, both under
    the guidance of the town elder. They are twins.
    
    In Battle: Palom starts with 100 HP while Porom starts with 110, both starting
    at Level 10. Despite their miniscule HP, they are both useful, as Palom can use
    Black magic like Bolt2 very well with his Bluff ability and when you need to
    escape in quite a hurry, Porom has the Cry ability, and she has some very
    useful White magic like Cure2. Their Twin ability is extremely useful because
    of its power, so overall, both mages are useful, but you don't have them for a
    very long time.
    
    ~~~~~~~~
    FuSoYa:
    ~~~~~~~~
    
    Introduction: A mysterious individual the characters encounter during their
    journey. FuSoYa is the guardian of the Lunarians on the Moon, and comes from
    the same race as the evil Zemus does. He seems to have a strange connection
    with Cecil and Golbez.
    
    In Battle: FuSoYa is one great sage! When you get him, he's on Level 50 with
    1900 HP, which sadly is not really a very good amount and plus his Regen is
    worthless, as it only restores 10 HP every few seconds and he cannot act when
    his HP is being restored, but he actually knows EVERY white magic spell and
    EVERY black one too, so he's incredibly good. His attack power is low, but who
    needs THAT, anyway? Unfortunately, he only has 190 MP, and won't gain any more
    until you level him up about 20 times, but regardless of his low HP and MP,
    he's a fantastic character, but he's better for using his White magic than he
    is for Black magic.

    Then the strategy. Enjoy!
    
    Boss Fight #1
    Name: Mist Dragon
    HP: 465
    EXP: 700
    Difficulty: 2
    Location: Mist Cavern
    Steal: N/A
    Weakness: N/A
    My Levels: Cecil: 11, Kain: 11
    
    This is an extremely easy boss. Cecil should attack while Kain jumps. The Mist
    Dragon can't really attack you too well. The only tricky spot is when the Mist
    Dragon turns into mist. Don't attack it because your attacks will not only miss
    but the Mist Dragon will counterattack with Cold Mist, for about 30-40 damage
    to both Cecil and Kain, although it will not counterattack Jump. Take this time
    to heal with Potions as the Mist Dragon won't attack. When it turns back into
    the Mist Dragon, attack and Jump more and this battle will be over soon.
    
    NOTE: Picture available of Mist Dragon!:

    Boss Fight #2
    Name: General, 3 Soldiers
    HP: 221, (General), 27, (Soldiers)
    EXP: 398, (General), 27, (Soldiers)
    Difficulty: 1
    Location: Kaipo
    Steal: N/A
    Weakness: N/A
    My Levels: Cecil: 11
    
    I don't really consider this battle as a boss fight, but it should be covered
    here anyway. This battle is actually even easier than the Mist Dragon. Your
    first priority will be to take care of two of the soldiers, then you should get
    rid of the General, because the EXP is well worth it. The soldiers can quite
    easily be taken down in one blow apiece, but don't use Dark or there's a chance
    you will kill all three of the soldiers, and if you do then the general will
    run away, and you'll miss the good EXP. A few good blows will rid the general.
    This is pretty easy.
    
    Boss Fight #3
    Name: Octomann
    HP: 2350
    EXP: 1200
    Difficulty: 2
    Location: Lake
    Steal: N/A
    Weakness: Dark, Bolt
    My Levels: Cecil: 14, Rydia: 10, Tellah: 20
    
    This is another rather easy battle. Have Cecil attack every turn while Tellah
    uses Recall, (a few times I recalled Bio for about 700 damage), or Bolt1 while
    Rydia uses Chocobo every turn. Tellah may use Bio or similar powerful spells at
    random, and they may do big damage. Octomann isn't very dangerous, do not worry
    about healing. If you keep this up you'll win this battle.
    
    NOTE: Picture available of Octomann!:

    Boss Fight #4
    Name: Antlion
    HP: 1100
    EXP: 1500
    Difficulty: 3
    Location: Antlion's Nest
    Steal: N/A
    Weakness: N/A
    My Levels: Cecil: 15, Rydia: 12, Edward: 10
    
    This battle isn't nearly as hard as it might look. You'll notice that when you
    attack the Antlion, it will counterattack a random party member, for about
    30-40 damage. If it does this too much to Rydia or Edward it might decimate
    your party. Its regular attacks are weak, so its counterattack is the only
    threat. Have Cecil attack every turn while Edward can heal with a Potion or his
    Heal ability, and Rydia summons Chocobo. Antlion isn't too tough.
    
    Boss Fight #5
    Name: Mom Bomb
    HP: 11000
    EXP: 1900
    Difficulty: 5
    Location: Mt. Hobs Summit
    Steal: N/A
    Weakness: N/A
    My Levels: Cecil: 16, Rydia: 13, Edward: 13, Rosa: 13, Yang: 10
    
    This fight is tougher than the last fights. The Mom Bomb starts out quite
    harmless, until you get rid of its HP. Have Cecil attack, Rydia summon the
    Chocobo, Edward use a Potion or Heal if needed, or otherwise attack, Yang use
    Power, and Rosa Aim. You do not need to do 11000 damage, but when this Mom Bomb
    puffs up, have everyone quickly Parry until you get to Rosa. Do absolutely
    nothing until it explodes, for about 50-75 damage to everyone, and then cast
    Cure2 on everyone. Now have Cecil use Dark and Yang use Kick. The Bombs will
    probably die and the GreyBombs will most likely detonate, and the battle is
    won.
    
    Boss Fights #6, 7, 8
    Name: Captain, 2 Fighters
    HP: 320 (Captain), 65 (Fighters)
    EXP: 999 (Captain), 399, (Fighters)
    Difficulty: 5
    Location: Fabul Castle
    Steal: N/A
    Weakness: N/A
    My Levels 1: Cecil: 16, Edward: 14, Yang: 12
    My Levels 2: Cecil: 16, Edward: 15, Yang: 13
    My Levels 3: Cecil: 17, Edward: 15, Yang: 14
    
    Just like the last fight, this fight isn't actually a boss battle but it should
    be covered here anyway, for random. This battle is much harder than the last
    one. If Edward is in the front row he'll be knocked out in two or three good
    blows, so by all means don't put him there. The Fighters are much stronger than
    they used to be, even with Edward and Yang here. Make sure that Edward does not
    get in critical status or he will hide, and have him heal Cecil and Yang or
    himself. Have Cecil take care of one soldier, while Yang uses Power on the
    General for the usual great EXP, and then leave the other soldier alone while
    you have Cecil and Yang beat up the general, who will be gone quite soon. You
    will have to fight this battle twice more, so follow this strategy to win all
    three battles with ease!
    
    Boss Fight #9
    Name: Milon, 4 Ghasts
    HP: 3500, (Milon), 200, (Ghasts)
    EXP: 3400
    Difficulty: 7
    Location: Mt. Ordeals Summit
    Steal: N/A
    Weakness: Milon: Fire, Ghast: Holy, Fire
    My Levels: Cecil: 19, Palom: 16, Porom: 16, Tellah: 22
    
    This battle can be a bit tough. The Ghasts will attack but aren't too bad, so
    have Palom cast Fire2 on all of them, then have Tellah cast Fire1, and most
    likely they will all be dead. Milon uses Bolt1 a lot, for about 60-70 damage,
    so have Porom ready to cast Cure2 when needed. Tellah should use spells like
    Fire1 while Palom and Porom use Twin and Cecil attacks. Make sure that Tellah
    is ready to cast Cure2 on someone when needed, because Milon uses Bolt1 a lot.
    Otherwise this battle is pretty simple and easy now.
    
    Boss Fight #10
    Name: Milon Zombie
    HP: 3523
    EXP: 3600
    Difficulty: 5
    Location: Mt. Ordeals Summit
    Steal: N/A
    Weakness: Fire, Holy, Projectiles
    My Levels: Cecil: 19, Palom: 17, Porom: 17, Tellah: 22
    
    I actually think this battle is easier than the last. Hopefully you put Cecil
    in the back and others in the front before this battle because Milon attacks
    you from behind. If you didn't it's no problem, just use Row. Have Palom use
    Fire2 while Tellah uses Fire1 every turn, and have Porom heal when necessary.
    If you have one, using a Bomb would also help, because Cecil's attack is pretty
    useless here.
    
    Boss Fight #11
    Name: Dark Knight
    HP: N/A
    EXP: N/A
    Difficulty: 2
    Location: Mt. Ordeals Shrine
    Steal: N/A
    Weakness: N/A
    My Levels: Cecil: 1
    
    The one-on-one fight between Cecil and his old self is actually very simple.
    You must act like a paladin, so instead of attacking this Dark Knight, Parry
    and if your HP gets too low, use a Hi-Potion. Eventually this battle will be
    over.
    
    (Now it might be a good idea to knock Palom, Porom, and Tellah out, and have
    Cecil take all the glory until he reaches a sensible level, such as 18.)
    
    Boss Fight #12
    Name: Baigan

    My Levels: Cecil: 20, Palom: 19, Porom: 19, Tellah: 22, Yang: 22
    
    This battle can be tough if you don't know what to do. As soon as Tellah gets
    the chance, have him use Ice3, (which seems for me to work the best of three
    Level 3 Elemental magics) on the body, which will do about 1800 damage. He will
    use Wall now. DO NOT attack the arms, because Baigan will revive them. Have
    Porom heal your party while you might have Palom use a Hi-Potion and Yang uses
    Power. When Baigan uses Haste, you'll know he's no longer under Wall. Use Ice3
    on him again quickly, and do some big damage. Shortly afterwards, the two arms
    will detonate and do some damage to a character.

    Weakness: Bolt
    My Levels: Cecil: 20, Palom: 19, Porom: 19, Tellah: 22, Yang: 22
    
    This battle is tough if you don't know what to do, but is VERY easy actually.
    Cagnazzo will shortly use Big Wave for about 220+ damage to your group, but
    Palom should be able to survive. Have him do Bolt2, and have Tellah use Bolt3.
    If Porom survived, have her heal someone. Yang should have the Bolt Claw
    equipped and should be using Power for about 700 damage while Cecil attacks,
    and this battle should be over in no time. Also, don't be afraid to kill off
    Palom and Porom because this is the last boss fight you will have them in.
    
    Boss Fight #14
    Name: Dark Elf, Dark Dragon
    HP: 23890, (Dark Elf), 3927, (Dark Dragon)
    EXP: 6000
    Difficulty: 7
    Location: Magnetic Cavern (Crystal Room)
    Steal: N/A
    Weakness: Holy
    My Levels: Cecil: 23, Cid: 23, Tellah: 24, Yang: 24
    
    This battle should prove your first real challenge in FFIV. Have Cecil equipped
    with the Legend because whenever he attacks he'll do a whopping 1000 damage or
    so! This first form isn't all that tough actually. It'll do that nasty combo of
    Fire2, Bolt2, and Ice2, but it'll only do about 40-50 damage to your party, it
    uses Wind to reduce your party's HP to a single digit, and Whisper to turn a
    character into a pig, always in this order. Whenever Yang or Tellah is turned
    into a pig, immediately use a DietFood. When the Dark Elf uses Wind on Tellah,
    use Cure2. If on anyone else, Cure3 is advised. You don't have to do 23890
    damage, but once some damage is done to the Dark Elf, it'll turn into a Dark
    Dragon, a far tougher form. It does Dark Breath for about 250-300 damage to
    your party, and physical attacks for about 400 damage. When Dark Dragon uses
    Dark Breath, immediately have Tellah use Cure3 on the party to keep yourself in
    good shape. Cecil will do the usual 1000 damage, and Yang will do about 400-500
    damage, so you should be able to kill the Dark Dragon fairly quickly, as long
    as you never have Tellah use anything but Cure magic. If you have a few Ethers,
    you may also want to have Tellah cast Haste on himself and Cecil, so you can do
    this all quicker, but if you don't want to take any risks, then don't.

    Name: Sandy, Cindy, Mindy (Magus Sisters)

    Difficulty: 3
    Location: Tower of Zot B5
    Steal: N/A
    Weakness: N/A
    My Levels: Cecil: 24, Cid: 24, Tellah: 25, Yang: 25
    
    This battle is pretty easy. Our main target here is Cindy in the middle,
    because she's not only the greatest threat but she can revive Sandy or Mindy if
    they're killed first. Sandy will cast Wall on Cindy, and then Cindy will order
    Mindy to do a Level 2 spell on her to reflect to a random character in your
    party for about 150 damage. Once in a while Sandy will cast Wall on Cindy when
    there already is one, and reflect it on to a party member. You should have
    Tellah cast Fire3 on that party member to reflect it onto one of the sisters,
    and the chance is pretty high that it'll be Cindy. Have Cid, (with the Gaia),
    and Cecil, (with the Flame), attack, while Yang, (with the HellClaw and Fairy)
    uses Power. It won't be too long until Cindy is gone. Now beat up Sandy,
    because she uses some status effects on your party. She'll go down very soon,
    and now have Tellah use all of his strongest spells and Mindy will be dead very
    soon. Also, don't be afraid to knock Tellah out, but I wouldn't want to spoil
    the upcoming...

    Steal: N/A
    Weakness: N/A
    My Levels: Cecil: 24, Kain: 27, Cid: 24, Rosa: 26, Yang: 25
    
    This is definitely the toughest boss fight that you have fought so far. When
    Valvalis turns into a tornado, by ALL MEANS, don't attack her because you'll do
    very small damage. Have Kain Jump every turn, and if it doesn't miss, it'll do
    400-500 damage, and the tornado will be down, and Valvalis will counterattack.
    Don't have Rosa use Esuna when Valvalis uses Wind then Glare, use Cure2. When
    Valvalis is not a tornado, have Cecil and Cid attack, and Yang use Power. Rosa
    should cast Cure2 every turn, and when someone is very close to becoming stone,
    have her cast Esuna if Cecil hasn't learned it yet, (he does at Level 25.) Have
    Kain on standby at all times to ensure he can Jump when you need to, and have
    Rosa heal at all times, and then repeat, then the fight can pretty much be won.

    Steal: N/A
    Weakness: N/A
    My Levels: Cecil: 27, Kain: 29, Rosa: 28, Yang: 27
    
    If you don't want to fight the Calbrina, kill off the blue dolls, the Cals,
    then immediately kill the red dolls, the Brinas. This is how to take care of
    the Cals to avoid fighting Calbrina: Have Kain jump, then have Yang attack one
    Cal, then it's going to die. Now have everyone concentrate on another Cal until
    it's Kain's turn. Have him Jump the OTHER Cal, then take out the Cal you were
    working on, then have Yang attack the other Cal and it'll be gone. Have Yang
    use Power on a Brina, then have Cecil and Kain attack another, and have Rosa
    cast Aim on another, and possibly have someone else attack, and then the battle
    is won. If you want to fight the Calbrina for the EXP, kill off the Brinas.
    Wait for a short while and the Cals will turn into the Calbrina. Have Cecil
    attack, Kain jump, Yang do Power, and have Rosa cast Cure2 on anyone who's been
    injured by Calbrina's strong attack. Have someone use a Unihorn if Calbrina
    uses Glance for confusion and the fight will be over shortly.

    My Levels: Cecil: 27, Kain: 29, Rosa: 28, Rydia: 27, Yang: 27
    
    Quite unfortunately, this is a very easy battle. Quickly have Kain Jump, and
    soon Golbez will taunt your party and then use Hold Gas on the party, then he
    summons a Shadow dragon. Golbez will threaten Cecil and a Mist Dragon appears
    and deals fair damage to Golbez and will kill Shadow. Cecil will be healed, and
    Rydia will appear at last! Don't bother reviving Rosa and Yang, instead have
    Cecil attack, Kain Jump, and Rydia summon Titan for a whooping 1400 damage, and
    Golbez will finally be defeated!

    Weakness: N/A
    My Levels: Cecil: 30, Kain: 31, Rosa: 30, Rydia: 29, Yang: 29
    
    This battle is fairly easy. Balnab will attack Dr. Lugae for about 600 damage,
    and then the battle begins. Aim to destroy Balnab, not to kill Dr. Lugae. Have
    Cecil attack, Rydia use Titan, Rosa heal the damage, Kain Jump, and Yang use
    Power. Balnab isn't too dangerous. Eventually, Balnab will be destroyed and
    then Lugae will control Balnab for himself, turning into Balnab-Z. Attack WELL
    and do it a lot, because after a few turns, Balnab-Z will detonate and do major
    damage to a character and almost definitely knock him/her out. Prevent this by
    having Cecil attack, Kain Jump, Yang use Power, and Rydia use Titan. Have
    everyone quickly do this and this battle will be won.

    Name: Lugaborg

    Steal: N/A
    Weakness: N/A
    My Levels: Cecil: 30, Kain: 31, Rosa: 30, Rydia: 29, Yang: 29
    
    This a rather strange battle, and a rather difficult one compared to the last
    couple, but it still isn't all that hard. Lugaborg uses Gas often to put a
    character to sleep, Beams and Lasers for seemingly random damage, as sometimes
    it does 150 while sometimes it does more like 1500 to the same character, and
    poison. Don't worry about curing Sleep and Poison. Instead have Cecil attack,
    Kain jump, Rosa heal the party with Cure3, Rydia summon Titan, and Yang do
    Power. Lugaborg will, for some reason heal the whole party of the status
    effects. Have yourself healed at all times, and rinse, wash, repeat, and this
    battle will be over soon.
    
    (De-equip Yang right at the end of this fight, because he's going to go soon.)
    
    (When you get Edge, he's at Level 25. It'd be a good idea to knock out everyone
    else and have him kill some enemies and get him to Level 31. The Tower of Babil
    is a spectacular place to level up, so why not do so?)

    Weakness: N/A
    My Levels: Cecil: 35, Kain: 36, Rosa: 34, Edge: 34, Rydia: 34
    
    This is a very easy fight and not really even a boss fight actually. Their
    attacks are very weak, so have Rydia summon Titan and have Cecil attack, Edge
    use Flame, Rosa use Aim, and Kain Jump, and once you do 7000 damage, they'll
    get a hold of themselves. Do nothing and soon both of them will die.
    
    Boss Fight #22
    Name: Rubicant
    HP: 34000

    Location: Tower of Babil
    Steal: Potion
    Weakness: Ice
    My Levels: Cecil: 35, Kain: 36, Rosa: 34, Edge: 34, Rydia: 34
    
    This isn't a tough fight at all. Just have Cecil attack for about 1500 damage,
    and Kain jump for a good 5000 damage! Rosa should Aim Ice arrows, while Edge
    uses Flood, and Rydia summons Shiva. When Rubicant covers himself, DO NOT use
    Ice Elements, because he absorbs them now. Have Rosa use Cure2, Cure3 or Life1
    when Rubicant uses Scorch, which probably knocks someone out, or his nasty
    Fire2. Be healed all times, and make sure that Kain is not knocked out, and
    this battle will be over quickly.
    
    (Perksposse noted that Cecil and Kain were only doing 1000 and 2500 damage with
    their attacks. To make them do the correct damage, be at a moderate level, and
    have them both equipped with the Ice equipment, while you may have Edge
    equipped with the IceClaw, from Yang. If you have the equipment, Rubicant is
    insanely easy.)
    
    (Now that Cid has upgraded our new Falcon, we can go to the Cave of Summons! If
    you get past there and go to the Land of Summons and into the library, we can
    fight these two.)

    My Levels: Cecil: 39, Kain: 39, Rosa: 38, Rydia: 37, Edge: 38
    
    First things first. Don't fight Asura unless Rosa is at the very least Level
    36, or this will be an insanely difficult fight. Asura casts Cure3 to restore
    about 2500 HP very frequently, so to beat her you have to reflect it to your
    party. Have Rosa use Wall on Asura so that her spells are worthless, and now
    have Rydia summon Titan, Rosa use Cure3 or Cure4 if you know it, and Edge throw
    a Shuriken or a Fuma. Whenever you attack Asura, she will counterattack a
    random party member for some good damage, so try to make sure that Rosa can
    keep everyone at as high HP as possible. Her spells are now reflected at you so
    just make sure you keep in good shape at all times.

    Weakness: Bolt
    My Levels: Cecil: 39, Kain: 40, Rosa: 38, Rydia: 38, Edge: 38
    
    This battle can get to be tough if you're not careful. When Leviatan's head if
    is sticking out, he will use Big Wave for about 300-400 damage to your party.
    When he hides his head, he will use Ice2 for about 600 damage. Ramuh is not a
    very good summon compared to Titan, so summon him instead, while having Rosa
    use Cure3 or Cure4, Kain jumps, Cecil attacks, and Edge either uses Blitz or
    attacks with his great ninja swords, or throws a Fuma. This battle is all a
    matter of keeping your HP high at all times and knowing how to attack well.
    Keep in mind that if you're not at high HP at all times then Leviatan will make
    short work of you, so be careful!

    My Levels: Cecil: 42, Kain: 43, Rosa: 42, Rydia: 41, Edge: 42
    
    This battle can quite easily be a toughie. You must kill it before it gets
    close to you or it will start killing random party members. To start off, have
    Edge throw weapons, Rydia summon Leviatan or do Ice3, Rosa cast Slow on the
    EvilWall, Kain attack, (his Jump is pretty useless here), and Cecil attack.
    Also, you might even want to have Rosa cast Bersk on Cecil to have him attack
    quicker. I hate this boss, but if you can get in enough damage quickly enough
    then it will be gone pretty soon.
    
    (Now that we're on the moon, it wouldn't hurt to go to that cave surrounded by
    the walls, would it? It's well worth it, to get Rydia's very best summon. Make
    sure that you have gotten FuSoYa and these battles will be more than twice as
    easy.)

    My Levels 3: Cecil: 45, Rosa: 44, Rydia: 43, Edge: 43, FuSoYa: 51
    
    This is not really a boss battle, but if your levels are really low, these
    creatures can make short work of you. They have high defense and high attack
    power. Have Rydia summon Asura while Rosa casts Cure4, Cecil attacks, Edge
    Throws Shurikens or Fumas, and when the Behemoth goes below 7000 HP, Meteo.
    Meteo will only do about 7000 damage, and the Behemoth will counter Meteo and
    Holy with Storm, which is Wind on everyone. Be very careful and keep healed and
    alive at all times and you'll beat it. Keep in mind that there are three of
    these menacing creatures, so after this fight you may want to get out of this
    place, save your game, and enter again.

    will not challenge you.)

    As the god of summons, you'd think this would be an extremely difficult battle,
    but it's not, as long as you know exactly what to do. Bahamut will start off by
    counting down from 5 to 0, and when at 0, he will use MegaFire on everyone, and
    pretty much kill them all. Just as the book in the Land of Summons said, you
    need to reflect Bahamut's strength. Have Cecil, Edge, and Rydia use StarVeils
    or MoonVeils on themselves, and then have Rosa and FuSoYa use Wall. After this
    is done, try to have FuSoYa cast Meteo. When Bahamut uses Mega Fire, it will
    reflect back at him for 9999 damage. Try to keep Wall on as many characters as
    possible while having FuSoYa cast Meteo and Rydia cast Leviatan. Try to beat
    him fast, before he uses MegaFire again to kill you.

    My Levels: Cecil: 47, Rosa: 46, Rydia: 45, Edge: 46, FuSoYa: 52
    
    This can be a very tough battle unless you're careful. We start off fighting
    Milon. He is weak against Fire and Holy, so have Cecil attack with his
    Excalibur, Rosa heal or use a Cross when Milon uses Curse, or she can use Cure4
    on Milon, while Rydia casts Fire3, Edge uses Flame, and FuSoYa uses Fire3. Soon
    afterwards, we'll fight Rubicant, but although he's supposedly the strongest
    Fiend, he's not that hard at all. He uses Fire2 on everyone for about 100
    damage to your party, Fire3 for about 250 damage to it, and Scorch for about
    400 damage to it. Have Rosa heal everyone while Cecil attacks, Rydia and FuSoYa
    use Ice3, and Edge uses Flood. Soon enough we'll end up with the same old
    Cagnazzo, although now his Big Wave does about 500 damage to everyone. Have
    Cecil attack, Rosa use Cure4 when needed, Rydia use Bolt3, Edge use Blitz, and
    FuSoYa either use Bolt3 or Cure4. Now for the tough part. We are here fighting
    Valvalis, and she's no pushover at all. She has a new technique called Storm to
    put you in critical status, and all the other attacks. Have Cecil attack, Rosa
    on standby at ALL times to use Cure4, Rydia use Bolt3, Edge throw a Fuma if you
    have one, and FuSoYa cast Cure4, or possibly Flare or Meteo. Be very careful
    while fighting Valvalis, and this battle will be over.

    My Levels: Cecil: 47, Rosa: 46, Rydia: 45, Edge: 46, FuSoYa: 52
    
    This is a little easier than the last fight. First of all, our target is
    definitely the Defender because every turn it will heal the CPU. The Defender
    is the orb at the bottom. It won't take long to decimate it. The CPU will cast
    Wall on itself now, so don't use magic. As tempting as it is to attack the
    Attacker to remove its 200 damage Maser attack, DON'T! If you do, the CPU will
    use Globe99 for a good 9999 damage to a character, and does it twice or maybe
    even thrice. We don't want this to happen, because then it'll revive both the
    Attacker and Defender. So have Cecil attack with the Excalibur, Rosa Aim Yoichi
    arrows, Rydia attack or Parry, (an attack will do more than Chocobo ever will)
    Edge throw a Shuriken or two, and FuSoYa heal. Once you're sure it'll destroy
    it, you may want to have him cast Meteo though, because it does 9999 damage as
    usual.
    
    (Odin is located in Baron Castle's hidden throne room. You MUST have defeated
    Leviatan to challenge him. You could have done this as soon as Cid upgraded the

    My Levels: Cecil: 47, Kain: 48, Rosa: 46, Rydia: 45, Edge: 47
    
    What we have to do is beat Odin before he uses Odin, a skill which does about
    4000 damage to your party, and needless to say will rip it apart. Don't heal
    Odin's attacks, just beat on him with Rosa's Bolt arrows, Kain's Jump, Cecil's
    attacks, Rydia's Bolt3, and Blitz from Edge (or a Fuma if you have one). If you
    need to, you can use a Silk Web on Odin to slow him down, should your levels be
    too low. But if you do these attacks properly then Odin will be toast.

    This guy is sort of tough, especially if you didn't cast Float before this
    fight. If you did, his nasty Gaia Rage will miss. What we do here is have Cecil
    attack, Kain Jump, Rosa use Cure4, Rydia call Bahamut, and Edge throw a Fuma.
    Whenever you attack, he'll do the annoying Slow spell on you to reduce your
    speed, which isn't bad, but the White Dragon also uses that terrible Storm
    attack, which will reduce everyone's HP to one digit. Immediately have Rosa
    cast Cure4 or Rydia try luck and summon Asura, and this battle shouldn't be all
    that difficult.

    Wyvern can be fairly difficult too. Some say he's harder than the final boss,
    but he's not actually, as long as you know what to do. He starts the battle
    with the use of MegaFire, which will almost definitely kill Rydia and maybe
    Rosa too. Have Edge throw a Fuma while Cecil and Kain revive Rydia and Rosa,
    (if Rosa isn't knocked out then Kain's jump is worthwhile.) Now, have Rosa heal
    the whole party, and use StarVeils or MoonVeils on Rosa and Rydia, and have
    Rosa cast Wall on your weakest other characters, and then have Rydia summon
    Bahamut. He will do some great damage, and now Wyvern will use MegaFire again,
    and it'll be reflected on him for some even more damage. Now just have Cecil
    attack, Kain Jump, Edge throw Fumas or weapons, while Rydia can summon Bahamut
    or use something like Bolt3. Wyvern will go down pretty soon.

    Name: Plague
    HP: 33333
    EXP: 31108
    Difficulty: 2
    Location: Lunar Subterrane
    Steal: Potion
    Weakness: Projectiles
    My Levels: Cecil: 54, Kain: 55, Rosa: 53, Rydia: 52, Edge: 54
    
    This battle has a technique to easily win. You should enter the battle with one
    character dead, such as Rosa. Plague will start out the battle by using Doom,
    which puts everyone in a countdown from 10 to 0. At 0, you're dead meat. Have
    Cecil attack with the Ragnarok, Kain Jump, Rydia summon Bahamut, and Edge throw
    a good Fuma. Now immediately put Rosa back to life. Now Plague will reset the
    timers to 10. Have Rosa Aim Yoichi Arrows while everyone else does their job,
    and you should exit this battle with a victory. If you don't have enough time,
    just kill off another character and revive him/her, and then Plague will
    restart. This is the easiest way to defeat Plague, bar none. Or, if you want a
    challenge, then you'll just have to level up more and kill Plague. The correct
    attacks to use are Cecil's Ragnarok attacks, Kain's Jump, Rosa's Holy, Rydia's
    Bahamut instead of Meteo, because Meteo is much too slow, and an Excalibur,
    thrown by Edge. I'd raise the difficulty to about 8 is you choose this. I've
    done it, but it's VERY difficult to do it. Good luck!
    
    Boss Fight #36
    Name: 2 Lunasaurs
    HP: 23000 apiece
    EXP: 29500 apiece
    Difficulty: 5
    Location: Lunar Subterrane
    Steal: Potion
    Weakness: Holy
    My Levels: Cecil: 55, Kain: 55, Rosa: 53, Rydia: 53, Edge: 54
    
    This is a hard battle, but it can be easy if Cecil has the Ragnarok equipped.
    If he does then he'll do 9999 damage whenever he attacks. These Lunasaurs use
    Fire for about 350-500 damage to everyone, they use Wall, and then they reflect
    Bio onto your party for a nasty 1800 damage or so. Concentrate on one Lunasaur
    at a time, but by all means don't have Rydia summon anyone. If you do, they'll
    get 2300 HP back, and plus she can do about 1600 damage when she attacks
    anyway, as long as she's at a moderate level and has the Fire Lash equipped.
    Have Edge throw a Fuma, Rosa heal at ALL times, and Kain jump, while Cecil
    takes off 9999 HP from a SINGLE Lunasaur. Once there's just one left, this
    battle is cake. Just make sure you're healed when needed.

    Name: Ogopogo
    HP: 50000
    EXP: 61000
    Difficulty: 7
    Location: Lunar Subterrane
    Steal: Potion
    Weakness: Bolt
    My Levels: Cecil: 58, Kain: 58, Rosa: 56, Rydia: 56, Edge: 58
    
    And you thought that Leviatan was terrible! Ogopogo doesn't use Big Wave once,
    he uses it twice, and will probably do 1000 damage to your whole party. Have
    Rosa cast Cure4 at ALL times, because Ogopogo can take one of your characters
    down to a single digit HP. Have Rosa do this as fast as possible, while Cecil
    attacks, Edge throws a Fuma or Excalibur, Kain Jumps, and Rydia uses Bolt3 like
    you would on any other water creature. Be sure to keep your HP up at all times,
    while keeping in the powerful attacks from the four characters, and you may end
    up winning this fight, but be careful at all times!
    
    
    **SPOILERS BELOW! FINAL BOSS!**
    
    
    
    Boss Fight #38 (Final Boss)
    Name: Zeromus
    HP: 133333
    EXP: N/A
    Difficulty: 9
    Location: Lunar Subterrane
    Steal: DkMatter
    Weakness: N/A
    My Levels: Cecil: 63, Kain: 64, Rosa: 63, Rydia: 62, Edge: 63
    
    These are my preparations: Have Cecil equipped with the Ragnarok you got from
    Wyvern and all of the Crystal equipment. Have Kain equipped with all the Dragon
    equipment and Plague's Holy Lance, have Rosa with a Protect Ring, a Yoichi bow
    with Artemis arrows and a Ribbon, have Rydia equipped with the FireLash, a
    Ribbon, a Minerva Robe, and the other Protect Ring, and have Edge equipped with
    White Dragon's Murasame, Ogopogo's Masamune, a Ninja Helmet, and a Ninja Gear.
    Before this fight, if you don't feel guilty by doing this, do this: Enter a
    battle with Cecil equipped with the Excalibur. Click on a blank space and then
    the Excalibur. Now finish off the battle. Go to the menu and choose to equip
    the Excalibur, and you'll see you have two. Remove them, and then re-equip the
    Excalibur, and then you'll equip ONE, while another is already in your
    inventory! Repeat this tedious process until you have about 12 Excaliburs. Yes,
    I know it is boring, but it is more than worth doing it because he'll be a lot
    easier.
    
    If you're REALLY, REALLY patient, have a lot of Alerts, and some coffee to stay
    awake with, you can also do this. On Floor B5 of the Lunar Subterrane, there's
    a 1/64 chance you will find a Pink Puff. Then, there's a 1/64 chance it will
    drop a Pink Tail. So, there's a 1/4096 chance you'll get the Pink Tail. This is
    much easier if you have lots of Alerts. If you do, then you'll immediately get
    a Pink Puff and all you have to worry about is the 1/64 chance of getting the
    Pink Tail. Now, go to the Adamant Cave. Give that adamant guy the Pink Tail,
    and he'll give you the Adamant Armor, the strongest armor in the game. I'm not
    entirely sure about that thing with the Adamant Armor, as you may get an
    Adamant Ore. Please correct me if you know. Go to Each time you throw one at
    Zeromus you will do 9999 damage. Now when you start the battle, you'll realize
    you cannot hit Zeromus in any way. Take this time to have every single person
    Parry, while Edge attempts to steal a DkMatter item. If you have it in your
    inventory, Zeromus' Big Bang attack will do less damage. This may take as many
    as 10+ attempts, but keep at it until you have the DkMatter.
    
    Another tactic would be to knock out everyone except Edge. This will assure you
    won't have to deal with Parrying with everyone else. Now that this is done,
    revive everyone except Kain and Rydia. Rydia cannot do much in this fight and
    Kain can't really do much damage with his Jump. You'll get to Rosa for healing
    quicker if you do this, plus you will notice a small difference in the healing
    amount. Now Parry until you get to Cecil. Use the Crystal now, and we'll finally
    enter the fight with Zeromus. He'll use Big Bang, so have Edge throw an
    Excalibur and have Rosa cast Cure4. Constantly have Cecil attack, Edge throw the
    Excaliburs and Rosa heal. Don't use Holy though. Also, don't worry about Bio,
    just worry about Big Bang and possibly Flare. Keep yourself at good health at
    all times and eventually Zeromus will start casting Meteo. If you do feel guilty
    about getting all of those duplicate Excaliburs, this battle is much harder, so
    try this.
    
    Always have Cecil attack while Edge throws the Light Sword, the Excalibur, the
    Defense Sword, and the Gungir Spear. After he's thrown everything that you have,
    have him kill himself off. Zeromus and Cecil will trade hits probably, and Rosa
    can heal the damage. Now you'll know you've got the battle won because Meteo
    doesn't even hit your whole party, and only does 800-900 damage. Keep up with
    Cecil's strong attacks and Edge's Excaliburs, and eventually you will defeat
    Zeromus. Enjoy the excellent ending!

    This is the end, my beautiful friend... errr... right. The end of this guide.
    Or whatever. Hope you enjoyed this guide; it's a huge improvement over what was
    originally here, but then again, anything is.
    
    - Richard "Gbness" Beast: Yeah, this incredibly sexy and modest person wrote the
    very thing you are reading at the moment. He deserves a medal for that, would
    you agree? Right...
    
    - Jeff "CJayC" Veasey: For running the whole site of GameFAQs, the main site
    that I work for. It's an awesome site, and I must commend CJayC for running
    this great site for 6 whole years and posting this guide.
    
    - Stephen Ng: For being the FAQ editor for IGN, which is the other site that I
    write for. I am honored to write for IGN, since it is a great site. I was also
    very glad to do an exclusive for IGN.
    
    - Devin Morgan: Thanks a lot for the information that was needed to create this
    guide; tis been very helpful. He's got some very good stuff for FF4 up, so like,
    check it out.
    
    - Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, U2, The Eagles, Queen, Van Halen, The Beatles, and
    many others: You probably know why I'm thanking you, but I don't believe this
    guide would be up as quickly if it weren't for all of you.
    
    - The people who support me and still keep me writing today; stuff happened a
    year ago, and without these people, I would not still be writing: SinirothX,
    Psycho Penguin, Meowthnum1, CVXFREAK, Karpah, ZoopSoul, Crazyreyn, Gobicamel,
    asa2377 (OH EM GEE YOU TROLL), Warhawk, Cyril, supernova54321, Minesweeper,
    AlaskaFox, me frog, RHarrison, masterzero99, Tom Hayes, wayalla, djg40,
    MTincher, NickBush24, BurningFox, AquaBlast, and definitely more that I'm
    forgetting: you don't know all that you have done to support me since I began
    to write almost two years ago.
