 1.0 - INTRODUCTION
====================

This is my eigth game guide!

This game is one of my most  favorite Final Fantasy.  It's pretty old,  but the
experience with  it is very memorable.  There's the 'Job System',  which is one
of my most  favorite way of  powering up;  unforgetable  characters  like Boco,
Syldra (Hydra),  Cid,  Mid and many more;  a very nice story... whoa! ... first
FF with multiple endings;  and towering above all is the bunch of huge,  nasty,
tricky and cool bosses!

If there's one  FF that deserves  a recognition when it comes to giving us fans
"enjoyment  and  challenge in 1"  when fighting  bosses,  it's Final Fantasy V.
You don't  have to do the same  thing over and over  just to beat a pretty hard
boss. Many bosses have their weaknesses.  Try to exploit it with many different
ways.  For example, a boss weak against fire can be beaten with a 'Fire' spell,
'Ifrit' summon, 'Fire' magic sword, tossing 'FireSkill' or using a Fire-element
weapon,  so  you'll  not get  bored  with the same  thing  when  fighting them.
However, bosses have at least one nasty attack (and usually non-elemental) that
can really  wear your  party down  in one or  two hits,  making it hard to just
focus on offense, so the weakness exploitation strategy cannot be considered as
"Cheap  Tactics"  by  those  who  think  that  the  "Fire beats Ice"  battle is
something that makes FF games VERY easy.

With almost 60 of them,  you'll encounter almost all  kinds of bosses you want,
Brute force,  elementals,  status-changers,  cheaters (too powerful), friendly,
tricky, summons and much more. This game, also, pioneered the inclusion of some
optional  extra-hard  "special bosses",  which is now a  regular feature in the
newer FF's.

Well,  I have already finished  this game years ago  in its Playstation Version
(Final Fantasy Anthology),  but for purposes of this guide...  and the love for
this game's bosses,  I decided to  play the original,  Jap-only,  SNES Version.
This guide can be used in both versions of the game so this is pretty useful...
especially for those new in the game.

Happy gaming!

                                                                       FG

==================
 2.0 - Boss Guide
==================

Area     - designates the location of the boss
Boss     - boss name; can either be a sub-boss, optional boss or true boss. 
Level    - boss level
HP       - number of Hit Points of the enemy.
Info     - boss' attacks, abilities, moves, and characteristics.
Weakness - scanned weakness of the boss
My Level - average level of my party at the start of the battle.

Note: Until I  replay the  Playstation  version,  get a 100%  translation,  or
      someone sends me the info, there could be some names (especially for the
      attacks) that are mistranslated or not listed... I can't understand Japs
      :(

      The levels I have could be very high for a particular boss fight because
      I'm dealing with  the boss after I have  done all I can  do at a certain
      place or just  wondering  around...  in the process  I fight enemies and
      accumulate experiences, thus, quite high levels :(

                                     WORLD 1
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
No. 01

Area    : Wind Shrine
Boss    : WingRaptor/Wingrapter
Level   : 1
HP      : 250

Info    : This boss alternately changes its form: "Wings are open" and "Wings 
          are closed".

          "Wings are open":
          - Regular patk   - 10    dmg, single
          - Breath Wing    - 15-25 dmg, all

          "Wings are closed":
          - Counterattack  - 25-30 dmg, single

Weakness: n/a
Win     : FenixDown
My Level: 4

   -+- Normal way to beat him:

       Attack him when his wings are open. When his wings are closed, just cure
       or defend.  If you attack when his wings are closed, he'll do a counter.
       However,  if you're willing to spend a Potion or two, just strike him to
       your heart's content... anyway, this is just a practice boss.

   -+- Easy   Way to beat him:

       Equip everyone in with Broad Sword.  Butz has one and another one can be
       founnd in a treasure chest before you fight the boss. Buy 2 more in Tule
       Village. You'll be beating him in no time.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
No. 02

Area    : Torna Canal
Boss    : Karl Boss
Level   : 5
HP      : 650

Info    :
          - Regular patk - 30-40   dmg, single
          - H-Bomb       - 25      dmg, paralyze, single
          - Tail Screw   - critical HP, single

Weakness: Bolt
Win     : 5 ABP
          FenixDown
My Level: 6

   -+- Normal way to beat him:

       Make a party of Black Mages and toast him with 'Bolt'. If he uses his
       'Tail Screw', be sure to cure ASAP!

   -+- Easy   Way to beat him:

       Instead of exploiting his weakness,  make a party of  Blue Mages with
       'Goblin Punch' learned. He'll be eating 240 damage of hurt each turn!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
No. 03

Location: Ship Graveyard
Boss    : Siren
Level   : 2
HP      : 900

Info    : This boss alternately changes its form: "Normal" and "Undead". When
          it is in normal status, it is immune from elemental attacks.

          - Regular attack - 80- 90 dmg, single
          - Poison  attack - 60-120 dmg, poison, single
          - Ice   - 30 dmg, single 
          - Libra - scan      , single
          - Haste - speed up  , self
          - Slow  - speed down, single
          - Quiet - silence   , single
          - Sleep - sleep     , silence
          - Cure  - +65 HP    , self 
          
Weakness: Holy
Win     : 5 ABP
          Bronze Shield
My Level: 8

   -+- Normal way to beat her:

       Make a party of White Mages and ATTACK!  Nope, that's not the tip.  The
       strategy here is to wait for her to transform into 'Undead' and whittle
       her down with 'Cure'.

   -+- Easy   Way to beat her:

       I find it more effective to use 'Fire' vs her 'Undead' form. Attack her
       reularly and use 'Fire' when she changes into undead.
       
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
No. 04

Location: North Mountain
Boss    : Magissa
Level   : 8
HP      : 650

Info    : If you can't take her down ASAP, she'll call Faltzer (850 HP) to help
          her.  Once she calls her boyfriend,  even if you beat her,  you still
          have to beat Faltzer to win.

          Magissa
          - Regular attack -  70 dmg, single
          - Drain - 170-190 dmg , single
          - Bolt  -  60     dmg , single
          - Ice   -  60     dmg , single
          - Aero  -
          - Regen - constant +HP, self/ally

          Faltzer
          - Regular attack - 50-100 dmg, single

Weakness: n/a
Win     : 6 ABP
My Level: 10

   -+- Normal way to beat her:

       A balanced party of physical attackers/offensive magicians and healers
       is enough to  finish her off.  If he calls Faltzer  for help,  you can
       always put the guy to 'Sleep'.  BTW, the battle  will start with Reina
       poisoned, OR

       Make a party of Monks and ATTACK! Their critical attacks is invaluable
       in finishing her off before she can call for reinforcement.

   -+- Easy   Way to beat her:

       Break the Ice Rod you found in Kerwin on her for a 1-hit victory!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
No. 05

Location: Walz Castle
Boss    : Garula
Level   : 3
HP      : 1200

Info    : 

          - Regular attack - 120 dmg, can be used 2 or 3x in a turn, single
          - Charge - constant HP loss, single

Weakness: n/a
Win     : 5 ABP
          Hi-Potion
My Level: 12

   -+- Normal way to beat him:

       Make a party of Knights or Monks  (I prefer Knights  for better defense)
       who can use 'Protect' magic  (to further increase their pdef) to attack.
       If you are having  a hard time  surviving his  charges,  put your  party
       in the back row.

   -+- Easy   Way to beat him:

       Silence the guy and cast the 'Frog Song' blue magic. I'll leave the rest
       for you :)

       If you got a  whip from Magissa,  you can use it  to paralyze Garula and
       beat him to shame.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
No. 06

 !!! SUMMON MONSTER BOSS !!!

Location: Walz Castle
Boss    : Shiva
Level   : ?
HP      : ?

Info    : You'll fight her with 3 Ice Commanders (600 HP each). 

          Shiva
          - Ice 2 - 60-90 dmg, 2 targets
          - Absorbs 'Ice' attacks

          Ice Commander (x3)
          - Regular Attack - 50-120 dmg, single

Weakness: Fire
Win     : 5 ABP
          Ice Rod
My Level: 12

   -+- Normal way to beat her:

       The Ice Commandrs  are nasty so  take them out  first using  any strong
       fighter like Monk or Berserker. The rest of the party should be made up
       of Black Mages to nuke Shiva with 'Fire'.

   -+- Easy   Way to beat her:

       Have a Blue Mage cast 'Frog Song'  to the IceCommandrs.  Now, hit Shiva
       hard with 'Fire'. Breaking a Fire Rod will, also, hurt her badly.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
No. 07

Location: Fire Ship
Boss    : Liqiud Flame
Level   : 19
HP      : 3000

Info    : This boss alternately changes its form: "Human", "Tornado" and 
          "Hand".

          "Human"
          - Flame   - 90 dmg, all

          "Tornado"
          - Fire 2  - +270 HP, self
          - Magnet  - draws characters to the front row, all

          "Hand"
          - Regular attack - 70-80 dmg, single
          - Fire 2  - +300 HP, self
          - Immune to 'Ice' attacks

Weakness: Ice
Win     : 6 ABP
          Flame Bow
My Level: 15

   -+- Normal way to beat it:

       It's obvious that it's weak against 'Ice' magic, so make use of your 
       newly acquired 'Shiva' summon to freeze this guy in shame. 

   -+- Easy   Way to beat it:

       A single Black Mage with 'Ice2' is enough to kill this guy... 1200 
       damage! OR

       Break an Ice rod, Break another to kill it, unless it changed into the 
       hand form, which is immune to ice. In that case hit the hand to make it
       transform into another form.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
No. 08

Location: Karnak Castle
Boss    : Iron Claw
Level   : 20
HP      : 3000

Info    : When you're about to leave the castle's gate, this guy, disguising
          as a Sergeant, will attack you. Beat him and he'll reveal his true
          face...  and be sure to beat him fast because time is running out!

          Sergeant
          - Regular attack -

          Iron Claw
          - Regular attack -
          - Death Claw     -

Weakness: N/A
Win     : 
My Level: 15

   -+- Normal way to beat him:

       Your main enemy in  this battle is time.  The best way to  take off this
       guy and his cohorts is to use Summoners and cast  'Shiva' a few times to
       remove them at the same time... you can't afford to hit them one by one!

   -+- Easy   Way to beat him:

       Break one Ice/Thunder/Fire rod to kill the Karnaks. Break another rod to
       end the battle.

       A lucky Berserker can kill him in one hit.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
No. 09

 !!! SUMMON MAGIC BOSS !!!

Location: Ancient Library/Library of the Ancients

Weakness: Ice
Win     : 5 ABP
          FlameTech
My Level: 15

   -+- Normal way to beat him:

       Be cautious about his 'Flame' because it is very damaging to the party.
       Have a party of Black Mages with 'Ice2' or Summoners with 'Shiva' to
       force this guy to surrender.

   -+- Easy   Way to beat him:

       Like the battle with LiquidFlame, 'Ice2' is more effective than 'Shiva'
       ... 1100 damage! OR

       Break 2 Ice Rods... more powerful than 'Ice2'.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
No. 10

Location: Ancient Library/Library of the Ancients
Boss    : Biblos
Level   : 24
HP      : 3600

Info    :

          - Regular patk - 210 dmg, single

Weakness: Fire
Win     : 7 ABP
          Protect
My Level: 15

   -+- Normal way to beat him:

       This book loves to mess  up with your status so keep a White Mage with
       'Esuna'.  A back attack is also possible  to happen  (he'll be the one
       to make  the back attack...  NOT YOU!).  If you've learned  any 'Aero'
       spell, never use it 'coz it will heal him. Burn his pages with 'Fire2'
       or 'Ifrit', OR

       Break 3 Fire Rods to char this book monster.

   -+- Easy   Way to beat him:

       Use the 'Death Claw' blue magic for a quick win.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
No. 11

 !!! SUMMON MAGIC BOSS !!!

Location: Easterly Village Forest
Boss    : Ramuh
Level   : 21
HP      : 4000

Info    : Find him in the forest beside Easterly Village.

          - Regular patk   - 90-110 dmg, single
          - Electric Shock - 90-120 dmg, single
          - Bot2  - 420  dmg, single
          - Aspil - 5-65 dmg, absorb HP, single
          - Flash - blinds  , all
          - Absorbs 'Bolt' attacks.

Weakness:
Win     : 3 ABP
          Ramuh
My Level: 18

   -+- Normal way to beat him:

       Use the White Mage's  'Silence' or Time Mage's  'Mute' to stop him from
       casting his devastating 'Bolt' attacks. Once he's silenced, he's almost
       helpless. Ifrit can deal the best damage to finish him.

   -+- Easy   Way to beat him:

       Blue Mage's 'Death Claw' will definitely force him to serve you.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
No. 12

Location: Sand Tides Desert
Boss    : Sandworm
Level   : 18
HP      : 3000

Info    : This boss will randomly pop out in one of the three holes. If you hit
          at the vacant hole,  you'll waste  your turn  so caution  yourself in
          using single target attack.

         - Regular patk - 40-120 dmg, single
         - Quicksand    - 60 dmg    , constant HP loss,  all
         - Demi         - halves HP , can use 3x a turn, single
         - 'Whack-a-mole'... I mean, 'whack-a-worm' - poping in and out of the
           holes will spend most of the turns of this worm.

Weakness: Water
Win     : 5 ABP
My Level: 18

   -+- Normal way to beat him:

       'Ice2' and 'Shiva' works pretty well against this giant worm.  Just make
       sure you're  hitting the  right target  when using  'Ice2' or  you'll be
       wasting both turn and MP.

   -+- Easy   Way to beat him:

       Using the Blue Mage's 'Aqua Breath' will surely overkill this boss.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
No. 13

Location: Airship
Boss    : Clay Claw
Level   : 43
HP      : 2000

Info    :

         - Regular patk - 100-150 dmg, single
         - Tail Screw   - crtical HP , single
         - Mucus        - speed down , constant HP loss, single

Weakness: Bolt
Win     : 5 ABP
          Frost Bow
My Level: 20

   -+- Normal way to beat him:

       'Bolt2' and 'Ramuh' are your best attacks against this boss. Station a
       White Mage to  heal your party, ASAP,  when he used 'Tail Screw'.  His
       'Mucus'  depletes your characters'  HP so be cautious.  A 'Tail Screw'
       followed by 'Mucus' is very dangerous!

   -+- Easy   Way to beat him:

       Make a party of Summoners and let all of them cast 'Ramuh', OR

       Break 3 Lightning Rods.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
No. 14

Location:
Boss    : Adamantaim
Level   : 20
HP      : 2000

Info    :

         - Regular patk - 110     dmg, single
         - Charge       - 100-400 dmg, 2x hit, 2 targets 

Weakness: Ice
Win     : 5 ABP
          TurtleShell
My Level: 20

   -+- Normal way to beat him:

       Casting 'Protect' on your party is a good start to fight this  boss. He
       attacks physically just like Garula.  Standby a White Mage to heal your
       party when he makes charges because it can kill you. 'Ice2' is the best
       attack against this tortoise.

   -+- Easy   Way to beat him:

       A LUCKY person who learned 'L5 Doom' blue magic should cast it for quick
       win.

   -+- Normal way to beat it:

       The best attack against this boss is to use Ninjas and throw  'BoltTech'
       (LightningSkill).  A White Mage should be ready to use 'Esuna' to anyone
       targeted by the 'Missile' from the Launchers. Having a hasted party will
       be a big  advantage.  It will  give you  a chance  to destroy  the whole
       cannon even before it uses 'Surge Beam'.

   -+- Easy   Way to beat it:

       You can immediately destroy the annoying Launchers by casting 'L5 Doom'.
       Cast 'Fast' (Haste) and keep the sparks alive!

   -+- Normal way to beat him:

       Use 'Peep' or 'Libra' to see this boss' quickly changing weakness and
       abuse it. The second form is quite strong against magic, but it's not
       really a problem. Use Monks to beat him until you win.

   -+- Easy   Way to beat him:

       Have Geomancers in your party and keep using its  'Terrain' to wear him
       off. In the second form, just cast 'L5 Doom' blue magic and the boss is
       dead.

       For an even easier battle, use the blue magic 'Flash' to blind him.

   -+- Normal way to beat him:

       It will be very helpful to have the 'Float' status to save you from the
       devastating 'Earth Shaker' of Titan. You can control a Geira Cat in the
       North Mountain to cast it on you.  For some reason, this guy is weak vs
       fire attacks... and 'Fire2' is the best so far. 

       If you don't have 'Float' status,  use 'Dark Shock' blue magic to halve
       his level. Casting 'Slow' will also help a-lot.

       Kill them all at the same time by making a party of Summoners and cast

   -+- Normal way to beat him:

       This guy is quite fast,  so cast  'Slow' on him  to save  you some time.
       Blue Mage's 'Dark Shock' will cut his level by half.  Hit him hard! Once
       you reduced his  HP by half,  he'll start  to cast protective  spells on
       himself. What is more annoying is he will start to 'Jump', which is very
       nasty.  Be sure you're ready to cure and revive your injured party.  You
       can also blind him with the Chemist's 'Mix'  (Eyedrop + Dragon Fang/Dark
       Matter).

   -+- Easy   Way to beat him:

       Cast 'Silence' (White Mage's 'Quiet'/Time Mage's 'Mute') on him to block
       him to use his  protective spells.  A party of Summoners casting 'Titan'
       or a party of Blue Mages casting 'Blow Fish' will beat this guy with the
       least problem.

       Time Mage's 'Demi'  works well  in weakening  the main form.  'Titan' is
       very  effective  in killing  the  sprouts,  at  the  same  time  dealing
       considerable damage to the boss. Geomancer's 'Terrain' (Cave-in) is also
       very effective in dealing multiple thousands of damage. Just be sure you
       have a  White Mage  ready to  use 'Esuna'  whenever  you're hit with its
       annoying 'Pollen' attacks.

   -+- Easy   Way to beat it:

       Just cast  your newly  acquired 'Golem'  summon.  This plant will not be

       This is the first true boss in the game if you want to beat him with all
       your partymates alive  and you're not prepared.  Make a party of Knights
       with the 'Double Grip' ability or  a party of Black Mages with 'Bio'. At
       the start of  the battle  he will  kill one of your mates with  'Comet'.
       Have someone cast 'Haste' and start  hacking or throwing 'Bio' spells on
       him. This is the best strategy, I've tried,  for those who are not ready
       for this battle; OR

       Make a party of Ninjas and have at least 11 Shurikens.  Start the battle
       by throwing Shurikens until you have thrown all 11 of it. Now,  wait for
       the time that you have two characters with ATB ready. Revive your fallen
       ally and immediately throw  anything from  your inventory  to finish him
       off... TADAH! You've just beaten him with all your partymates ALIVE!

   -+- Easy   Way to beat him:

       If you've got  some Gil (at least 8700),  have a  party of Samurais  and
       keep using its 'Gil Toss' ability. When you've thrown your 4th, wait for
       the time that you have two characters with ATB ready. Revive your fallen
       ally and immediately throw the 5th one. Just like the one above,  you'll
       beat  him  with  all your  partymates  alive...  but this  is less  time
       consuming and less expensive than throwing all those Shurikens :) OR

       'Dark Shock' + 'Lvl 5 Doom' blue spells will dispatch him in no time, OR

       Put him to 'Sleep' and  attack him with anything  that will not wake him
       up (i.e. Terrain, Goblin Punch, DrgSword, Dance etc...)

       Cast 'Shell' on your party to reduce the  dame dealt by his spells. Once
       you're fortified, start hacking him with physical attacks.  Using spells
       can deal  incredible  damage to him,  but before  you can  do that,  use
       'Wall' for your party.  Now, instead  of casting the  spells directly on
       'Carbuncle', cast it on your pary...  the spell will  bounce  to him and
       will hit him BIG TIME!

   -+- Easy   Way to beat him:

       The best way to beat him is to abuse his weakness--- Stone! Black Mage's
       'Break' or the Summoner's 'Shoat'  spells are your best bet.  The chance
       of these spells to connect  is not 100%  (but pretty high),  but once it
       hits Carbuncle, that's the end of the battle, OR

       Releasing 3x Iron Dresses (from Shoat's Island cave) also does the job.

STEAL!!!: Genji Helmet
My Level: 36

   -+- Normal way to beat him:

       Cast 'Golem' and  attack him normally.  Casting 'Slow'  on him will also
       prove beneficial.  Be sure you have  someone ready to  heal you whenever
       you're afflicted with negative status.  When he changes into  his second
       form, be sure to steal the Genji Helmet.

   -+- Easy   Way to beat him:

       If you can afford, make a party of Blue Mages who knows how to use White
       magic.  'Aero 3' is  surprisingly  effective  against  Gilgy,  so use it
       whenever possible,  otherwise,  concentrate on  healing negative status.
       The battle won't last long using this strat.

       Bring up a  Summoner to cast 'Golem' and 'Carbuncle' to protect you from
       most  of  X-Death's attacks.  Blue  Mages  casting  'Aero  3'  is  still
       effective. Knights and Archers (with the Gale Bow) are also useful. Keep
       a  steady  balance  between  offense  and  defense....  keeping  special
       attention to the effects of 'Golem' and 'Carbuncle', OR

       Mages who  can use  any of the level 3  elemental black  magic are great
       against this boss. Using such will deal 2000+ damage per casting! Still,
       don't forget to keep 'Golem' and 'Carbuncle' on.

   -+- Easy   Way to beat him:

       Release 4 Yellow Dragons  (Random enemies in  Exdeath's Castle)  to beat
       him... i can't think of anything faster than this strategy.

       'Slow' to make things worse for him...  and start hacking him.  A Knight
       with the  'Double Grip'  ability will do  fine with  the help  of a good
       healer,  but for a more  efficient fighter,  a Sorcerer with the 'Double
       Grip' ability and  using 'Drain'  will make a self-reliant powerhouse...
       dealing good damage against the boss and good healing for you :)

   -+- Easy   Way to beat him:

       Surprisingly, the blue magic, 'Aero3', is very effective against him. If
       you've learned it, you'll be dealing a whooping 1000+ damage against the
       boss. The same thing is true with the blue magic, 'Exploder', OR

       they'll  just come back.  So you want to kill  them both at once.  Use

       These guys use physical  attacks only so a party protected by  'Golem'

Weakness: Varies
Win     : 20 ABP
My Level: 37

   -+- Normal way to beat her:

       Since she  frequently changes  her barrier  (weakness),  you should have
       someone who can use 'Peep' or 'Libra'. Once you knew her weakness, abuse
       it to  deal up  to 1800 damage!  If you throw  the wrong spell,  it will
       just be nullified or even heal her! Casting 'Haste' and 'Slow' will make
       a big difference as well as using 'Shell'.

   -+- Easy   Way to beat her:

       There's no real easy way to beat this gal.  The above  strat is the best
       and  fastest way but  I'll give  some useful  strats if you're  tired of
       using 'Peep' or 'Libra' whenever she changes her barrier:

       I don't know but,  I found out that the blue magic "AquaRake' is dealing
       a considerable amount of damage against her every weakness... it doesn't
       matter if  she's weak on 'Fire',  'Ice' or 'Bolt'.  It will deal 800+ of
       damage, OR

       The least  MP-consuming  way to beat  her is for you to  have Time Mages
       who can use the Geomancer ability, 'Terrain'. Weaken her with 'Comet' at
       the start up to the later  part of her HP with 1500+ damage until it can
       deal no  damage any more (Remeber that 'Comet' costs only 7 MP to cast).
       Now, use 'Terrain'.  The 'Arrow Branch' effect,  if it hits,  can deal a
       damage between 350-1400. It's is enough to kill her.

Weakness: n/a
Win     : 'Odin' Summon
My Level: 37

   -+- Normal way to beat him:

       Make a party of  Black Mages.  Be sure you have  any of the  3 level 3
       elemental  spells.  I prefer 'Bolt3'  to use against him.  If you took
       the 'Yoichi Bow' at the Sealed Castle of Kuza,  you may want to use an
       Archer because it will deal 3200+ damage with its usual critical hits.
       He will use  'True Edge' as  his first attack and will most likely use
       it again when he's near death, but with this strat,  you'll be beating
       him before he can use 'True Edge' the second time. Be offensive-minded
       and forget about healing... it's a waste of time.

       If you want to steal the  'Protect Ring', you have to be patient. It's
       not the  boss nor  the time  which makes stealing it hard...  it's the
       success rate of the 'Steal' ability. I successfully stole it by making
       Butz an  Archer with  'Yoichi Bow', Reina and Krile - mages with black
       magic ability  and Faris as Thief with 'Thief Gloves'.  With the above
       strat, you'll have  3 chances to steal it before you beat Odin. Sorry,
       but you have to restart the game if  you beat him without  getting the
       much-prized 'Protect Ring'.

   -+- Easy   Way to beat him:

       This is not really an easier way.  Actually, it's just saves you a sec
       or two and it's much  more expensive vis-a-vis the above strat.  Here,
       you have to make  a party of Ninjas.  Toss 'Shurikens' against him and
       kill him a few seconds earlier than the above strat.

       This can be a good strat when trying to steal the 'Protect Ring'. Have
       your Thief in 'Haste'.  Since you can save a little more time and your
       Thief is in 'Haste' you can have between 4-5 chances to steal it, OR

       This is the easy way!  Make a party  of Black Mages  and/or Summoners.
       Now, try your luck to stone him. Have all four of your characters cast
       'Break' and/or 'Shoat' and  see if you are lucky enough to finish Odin
       with the least effort.

       If you still want to  steal the 'Protect Ring',  have three Thieves in
       your party and a Black Mage or Summoner who knows Time magic. Put your
       Thieves under 'Haste' and  try your luck.  If you are lucky to get it,
       now, try your luck to 'Stone' him.

Win     : 20 ABP

   -+- Normal way to beat him:

       There are four targets,  but only  one of them  is the real Stoker.  You
       have to hit  the real one in  order to beat them all.  Hitting the wrong
       Stoker will waste your turn because it will do no damage. I know it will
       be easy to know  who's the real  if you hit  them all at  the same time.
       Unfortunately,  using a spell that hits them all will prompt all (except
       the real one) of them to counter with 'Blaze'...  and you don't want it.
       What you should do is to use any of the level 3 elemental spells of your
       Black Mage  or toss  'Shurikens' at  Stoker once  you knew  where he is.
       Don't worry, he's not hard as long as you refrain from all-target spells
       ... so, no summons for this battle.

   -+- Easy   Way to beat him:

       Cast 'Golem' at the start of the battle.  This guy rarely uses any other
       attacks besides his pathetic physical hits.  Once 'Golem' is up,  you're
       free to guess where the real Stoker is without  thinking about wasted MP
       and/or 'Shurikens'. Use a hasted  Knight with 'Double Grip' ability and/
       or a Ninja with the weapon 'Double Lance' to deal heavy  damage when you
       hit the right target.

   -+- Normal way to beat him:

       In this  battle,  your spell  commands  (White, Black, Summon, Time) are
       inaccessible so,  you have to depend on your brute force.  As a physical
       fighter Minitaurus can deal quite a damage. Using someone to concentrate
       on  offense  and  another  one for  healing is  not a  bad  idea,  but I
       recommend  you  to  be  offensive-minded.  Use a  Knight  equipped  with
       'Brave Blade' and  'Shot' (X-Attack)  ability of  the Archer  or a Ninja
       equipped with 'Ninja Blade' and 'Double Lance' plus the  Knight's 'Equip
       Armor' ability... you know,  you really need a good defense against this
       guy. Just use a Hi-Potion if your shield was not able to protect you, OR

       If you're a  little doubtful  about your  characters'  defense,  use any
       physical attacker you  want and give them the 'Twin' (Image)  ability of
       the Ninja. Minitaurus has a  poor eyesight so as  long as yor "twin" is
       on, you'll be safe from his deadly attacks.

   -+- Easy   Way to beat him:

       For a really  easy win,  toss 'Shurikens'  (Magic Shurikens  if you  can
       afford). He won't be able to  sustain such attacks for  a long time.  To
       ensure safe use of this strat,  give the Ninja's  'Throw' ability to the
       Knight... still, for its good defense.

       makes him  annoying is his  nasty status spells.  Don't let one of your

       spells.  To beat him, cast 'Reflect' or 'Carbuncle' on yourself and all
       his spells will bounce back to him.  Use your high level spells to beat

       2700+ damage each song! OR

       For something cool,  have 3 Blue Mages.  Wait until all their ATB are
       ready. Now, cast 'Condemn' (Death Sentence) on each of them fast! ...
       and just wait for their death.

       By the way, don't forget to equip some elemental armors / accessories
       ... just in case you're not prepared for this battle. 

   -+- Easy   Way to beat them:

       The ever useful 'Death  Claw' is back!  The strategy  here is to cast
       'Death Claw' to everyone and then follow up by an all-target spell to
       end the battle, OR

       The sweetest thing... 'Odin' and say bye, bye!

          'Bahamut' summon
My Level: 40

   -+- Normal way to beat him:

       This boss is not as  hard as some claim to be.  Have a balanced party of
       mages and physical attackers. I tried many combinations, but this is the
       safest I've tried:

       I Knight with the  Archer ability 'Shot' (X-Fight)  equipped with 'Brave
       Blade' for Butz, Time Mage with 'Blue Magic' for Reina, Bard with 'White
       Magic' for  Krile and  Ninja with  the  Knight's  'Equip  Armor' ability
       equipped with 'Ninja Blade' and 'Double Lance'. Equipping Fire Rings and
       Coral Rings will help a lot to survive most of his powerful attacks.

       Now, Your Time  Mage should  use 'Haste2'  for you to  get the momentum.
       Bahamut is quite slow, you know.  Have your Knight constantly use 'Shot'
       and Ninja,  'Attack'.  Each of  them will  deal 5000+  and 3000+  damage
       respectively.  Have your  healer fortify  your party  first with 'Shell'
       as Bahamut becomes critical,  he'll start  using the  all-powerful 'Mega
       Flare'...  'Shell'  will reduce  its damage  significantly  allowing you
       to live. Heal often and the "King of Dragons" will be your loyal servant
       'till the end.

   -+- Easy   Way to beat him:

       Make a party of Lancers (Dragoons)  and give 3 of them 'White Magic' and
       one the  'Time Magic'.  Start the battle  with 'Haste2'  and 'Shell' for
       everyone.  Once your whole party is fully fortified,  start flying using
       the 'Jump' command. This will save you from Bahamut's attack. If you got
       the timing,  you can  even finish  the battle  without being  touched...
       well, that's up to you OR

       Make a party of Time Mages.  It would be  extremely easy if you got your
       Thief *Mastered*.  Anyway, it's not important.  Give all  of them 'White
       Magic just in case.  Now, 'Haste2' at the start of the battle.  When all
       are ready, use  'Quick' on all your mages and follow that with 2 'Meteo'
       (Each 'Meteo' can deal between 800-1900 damage.  Don't worry.  The usual
       damage is between 1200-1800 each).  With at least 1000 damage per meteor
       (there are 4 hits) times 4,  and the immediate  turn you have because of
       'Quick' (of course you use another 'Meteo'),  you'll be dealing AT LEAST
       8000 damage per Time Mage. You got 4 Time Mages times 8000, you can deal
       AT LEAST 32000 damage in one turn, which is far from reality becasue I'm
       pretty sure you'll not be dealing 1000 damage only per meteor.  With his
       PATHETIC 40000 HP, you'll be whoopin' his *** big time!

       Summon 'Carbuncle' for  his 'Reflect' status.  It'll keep  you safe from
       Bahamut's 'Mega Flare' by making it bounce back to him :)

   -+- Normal way to beat him:

       Leviathan is a very  offensive-minded  boss all  (well, almost)  of his
       attacks  can deal  serious damage to  an unfortified party.  He can use
       'Tidal Wave' twice  in a turn! Have your entire party have  'Shell' and
       'Protect' (or 'Golem').  Rain  death to  this proud  serpent using your
       'Bolt' spells, 'Ramuh' and 'Hydra'  summons and 'Lightning Skills'.  It
       doesn't matter which you use because all are effective.  Even the basic
       'Bolt' is capable of  dealing up to 500 damage  considering this is one
       of the mid-later bosses you'll gonna face.  Everything  will be fine...
       just don't  forget to  constantly  heal your party,  especially when he
       uses 'Tidal Wave'.

   -+- Easy   Way to beat him:

       Equip everyone with 'Coral Rings' and cast 'Golem'.  Now, Leviathan can
       no longer  touch you  except with his  pathetic 'Aqua Rake'.  With this
       protection you have,  take the sea  serpent down with  a party of black
       magic users. 'Bolt3' can  deal a  consistent +/- 5500  damage with each
       casting. Sorcerers with the '2-Sword' Ninja ability and casting 'Bolt3'
       is capable  of dealing  the same  damage as well.  He'll give up pretty
       fast with this strat.

          Diamond Plate
My Level: 42

   -+- Normal way to beat her:

       WoodSprite  loves to  play with your status so a White Mage will be very
       useful with  this battle.  She also  loves to  fortify herself  with all
       sorts of  protective  and  supportive  spells.  Having a  White Mage  to
       'Dispel' such support is essential also. Besides that,  she's not really
       a problem. She hardly uses offensive spells so it's not really a problem
       to stay long with  this battle.  If you're being beaten,  there's always
       the time magic, 'Reset'.  If you're lucky, you can keep her from casting
       spells using 'Mute' or 'Silence'.  Summoning 'Hydra'  and 'Bahamut' will
       let you deal great damage even if WoodSprite is under reflect. A warrior
       with the 'Shot' (X-Fight) ability will also do wonders. Anyway, with her
       low HP, just about anything will be effective.

   -+- Easy   Way to beat her:

       Make a party of Dancers.  By now, you should have 3 Ribbons,  which will
       protect you  from WoodSprite's negative  status attacks.  Have the 'Time
       Magic'  ability  equipped.  Now,  use the 'Quick' - 'Meteor' combo.  Use
       'Quick' the first turn and cast  'Meteor' twice in a row.  As I've said,
       "just about anything will be effective", but I find this strategy really
       cool! Using this strategy, she will barely be given a chance to move.

          Omega Medal
My Level: 43

   -+- Normal way to beat it:

       I defeated this boss  FIRST TIME @ LEVEL 43!  I must admit he is really
       tough, but with some luck, you'll be beating him with a little problem.

       What I have was the following:

       Butz  (Mastered: Knight, Monk, Thief, Archer, and Bard)
       Reina (Mastered: Black Mage, Time Mage, Summoner and Bard)
       Krile (Mastered: White Mage, Time Mage, Chemist and Bard)
       Faris (Mastered: Knight, Ninja, Geomancer and Bard)

       As you can see, I don't have that much of mastered jobs. That's not the
       point. In my experience, what you really need is LUCK!

       This is my set-up:

       Butz : Sorcerer with 'Shot' (X-Fight) ability.
       Reina: White Mage with 'Time Mage'.
       Krile: Blue  Mage with 'Time Magic'.
       Faris: Time  Mage with 'White Magic'.

       NOTE: Be sure everyone is equipped with either 'Flame Shield' or 'Fire
             Ring'.

       In battle,  Butz should cast 'Bolt3'  on his swords.  He is my offensive
       character.  Reina should cast 'Haste2' as soon as possible.  Krile's job
       is to use 'Guardian' (for 'Float')  if you did  not put your  party into
       'Float' status before engaging into battle.  That's all you need for the
       preparation.  Now, LUCK, LUCK, LUCK!  You should know that Omega is very
       fast and  has the  tendency  use the  devastating  'Mustard Bomb' as his
       regular attack.  I decided to give 3 of the 4 characters  'Time' ability
       so you  can use  'Reset'  immediately (instead  of waiting for your Time
       Mage's turn) when the odds are at your side. Hope that Omega won't be so
       brutal to use 'Surge Beam' and/or  'Mustard' most of the time.  Let Butz
       do the killing... 4x 'Sshot' (X-Attack) will do  the work.

   -+- Easy   Way to beat it:

       Master the Thief (for speed), Archer (for 'Shot') and Sorcerer  (for the
       magic sword)  for  3 of your  characters.  The fourth should master Time
       Mage and can use 'Blue Magic'. Equip all the above abilities to the Bare
       Job.  At the  start of  the battle,  your magic  sword users  should use
       'Bolt3' on their swords and your support  should use  'Quick' to  enable
       him/her to use 'Haste2' and 'Guardian' (for 'Float') consecutively. Hope
       that Omega  will use  'Atomic Ray' instead  of its  'Surge Beam'  as its
       usual first attack or,  even if he uses  'Surge Beam' as first attack as
       long as you got initiative  (pre-emptive attack),  you'll be fine.  Once
       you've done that,  use 'Shot' (X-Fight) for the 3 magic sword users. You
       will  kill  him  after  4 'Shots'.  Hope  he'll  be using  'Atomic Ray',
       'Emission' and 'Earthquake' more than his other attacks.  If you did not
       get  good  treatment  from  him,  you  can  always  use  the Time Mage's
       'Reset'.

       NOTE: Although this is an easier way to beat him,  you'll be missing the
             100 ABP he'll be giving you becuase of the Bare class.

My Level: 43

   -+- Normal way to beat him:

       This guy barely uses HP-damaging attacks, but he loves to play with your
       status.  Have someone who is ready to use 'Esuna' to counter it.  As for
       your offense, use any 'Fire' elemental attacks.  Contrary to belief, the
       'Ifrit'  summon will not  heal him,  but is also  effective against this
       book.  You'll even find out that this proud boss is so afraid to 'Ifrit'
       that he needs to use 'Medicine' to bring his morale back!

   -+- Easy   Way to beat him:

       Cast 'Berserk' to him  and he won't attack with anything except his more
       powerful  physical attacks.  Use 'Golem' to  counter that,  but it won't
       last long. If you got 'Guardian' Blue spell, I think, it's better.  With
       your Time Mage  able  to use  'Flare',  have  them use 'Quick'  and cast
       'Flare' for 2 consecutive turns, otherwise, a Sorcerer with the Archer's
       'Shot' ability  should cast  'Flare' or 'Fire3'  to his sword and use it
       for an easy victory.

       This boss owns a bunch of 'Blue' spells so expect to encounter annoying
       attacks like 'Condemn',  'Roulette', 'Time Slip' and 'Death Claw'.  Add
       to that the fact that he can use 'White Wind' and 'Guardian' to protect
       himself... not to mention the insanely annoying 'Circle'. Having a good
       party of  White Mages  (for 'Cure',  'Life', 'Esuna'  and 'Dispel') and
       Black Mages for 'Bio'. He's not really hard.  Just be  sure to 'Dispel'
       him when he uses 'Guardian'  or the battle  will take longer to finish.

   -+- Easy   Way to beat him:

       The 'Bio' and  'Shot' (X-Fight)  combo of the  Sorcerer  will  make the
       battle easier.  Have them hasted  and you'll be beating him faster.  If
       you are lucky, you can beat him witohut being damaged, OR

       For a much more satisfying win, sap his MP with 'Asper' (Psyche). Black
       Mages and multi-hit Sorcerer will do great in this job.  After you took
       down all his MP, just laugh at him trying to cast spells at you and the
       note "Not enough MP"  always appears.  Now, punish him  for playing you
       with his Blue spells.

       They are not  really bosses,  but can be considered as sub-bosses,  like
       the Gargoyles  you fought at the  middle of the game,  because they have
       the background  music of  a boss.  Anyway,  you can easily  dispatch the
       first form by casting any of your high level spells (I recommend 'Meteo'
       spell).  If you  got  removed  by his  'Circle' attack,  you can  always
       counter that with 'Reset' Time spell. For the second form, 'Haste2' your
       party so you can hit  him more times than what  he can do to you. He got
       got quite  a-lot of HP,  considering it's just a sub-boss.  Rely on your
       spells to beat him.

   -+- Normal way to beat him:

       This guy  is quite  nasty with it's 'Earth Shaker'.  He's also very fast
       so he can  use it  twice or thrice  before you can have your move...  by
       then you're  already dead  (if you're in a lower level).  Use Lancers so
       you can 'Jump' out of the harms way. You may want to 'Haste2' your party
       and 'Slow' him down.  Be sure  that you  have some Softs or the  'Esuna'
       spell to heal petrified characters when he uses 'Demon's Eye'.  A little
       speed is all you need to beat him.

   -+- Easy   Way to beat him:

       This guy loves to  use his killer  'Earth Shaker'  move that he will not
       allow  anyone not to be  hit by it... of course  only those  that are at
       'Float' (and at 'Jump') can evade that,  so he uses 'Gravity100' to pull
       your floating characters down.  As long as there is a floating member of
       your party, he will keep on using  'Gravity100'.  So, how are  you going
       to keep your 'Float' status if he will pull you down, anyway? Here's the
       trick:  Put one of your character in 'Float' status before engaging into
       the battle and equip him/her with  'Wall Ring'.  When the battle starts,
       he'll try to pull  you down with 'Gravity100', but because  of the 'Wall
       Ring', it will bounce  back to him.  He will keep  on using it until the
       end... this is your time to attack.  Using this trick  will ensure you a
       no damage battle for your party!

   -+- Normal way to beat him:

       He'll start the battle by turning you into a party of frogs! This is bad
       because it  will prevent  you from using  your spells and dealing damage
       when using  physical attacks.  Not only that,  your physical  defense is
       greatly  decreased also.  Be sure you got  some 'Maiden's Kisses' or the
       Black Mage's  'Toad' spell to  bring  you  back  to normal.  Aside  from
       playing with your status,  he also loves the ultimate White spell, Holy,
       which usually deals +/- 9000 damage.... an instant kill.  To punish him,
       use a multi-hit  Sorcerer with  any of your  high level spells.  When he
       turns you back to frog, just use 'Maiden's Kiss' and 'Toad' spell, OR

       If you are lucky, you can use 'Silence' and/or  'Berserk' to prevent him
       from  using  his spells  ('Berserk'  status will  even prevent  him from
       turning your party into frog). Once the spell connects, you can beat him
       the way you wanted things to happen.

   -+- Easy   Way to beat him:

       The frog prince is pretty annoying,  but instead of looking for his weak
       spot,  might as well abuse  his strenth in your favor.  Equip your party
       with 'Wall Rings'.  Yes, I know it will  not save you  from turning into
       frogs, but through this you can reflect back his 'Holy' and deal a great
       to him.  If you can afford, change your Summoner back to normal (when in
       frog status) and cast 'Golem'.  If you've done all of that successfully,
       you can just sit back and relax...  watching him  beat himself  with his
       own offense... bye, bye frog prince!

Weakness: Holy/Water
Win     : 24 ABP
My Level: 43

   -+- Normal way to beat it:

       Twin Tania is quite fast for his size. Most of his moves are deals heavy
       damage to your party.  Of all his commonly used attacks, 'Tidal Wave' is
       the most frightening. Considering his speed, Twin Tania can use it twice
       before you can  even do a thing!  I recommend  you equip your party with
       'Coral Rings'.  Since he is weak to both 'Holy' and 'Water' attacks, you
       may want to make a party of Lancer (equip with 'Holy Lance' and 'Jump'),
       a Knight (equip with 'Excalibur' and 'Shot' ability),  a White Mage (for
       all around healing and 'Holy' spell) as well as a Summoner ('Leviathan')
       will make things  easy for you.  'Slowing'  him down and  'Hasting' your
       party will give  you a better chance of success.  Casting 'Guardian' for
       protection will not hurt as well.

   -+- Easy   Way to beat it:

       Equip your party with 'Coral Rings'  so whenver he uses 'Tidal Wave' you
       will be healed. When the battle starts, let your Summoner summon 'Golem'
       and 'Carbuncle' (to 'Reflect' back 'Mind Blast' and 'Atom Ray'... and to
       deal additional  damage.  Now all  you've  got to worry  about is  'Wind
       Slash, which is not even worthy as a boss move with its pathetic damage,
       and  'Snow Storm'.  'Guardian'  blue  magic  can  easily make  those two
       completely  useless.  Don't worry  about  healing  (because you're under
       'Reflect'), you will be healed by 'Tidal Wave', which is very often used
       by this boss.  Start doing damage  by using the  above offensives  (Holy
       Lance, Excalibur, Holy and Leviathan).  Now, here's the trick.  When hes
       starts charging up his 'Giga Flare',  be sure your  Summoner is ready to
       summon 'Odin' to finish him off.  If your Summoner is not ready,  you're
       toast dude... 3000+ is yours to swallow!

My Level: 43

   -+- Normal way to beat it:

       This guy will always have  the initiative and use  'Tidal Wave' so don't
       forget to equip your party with 'Coral Rings'.  I think he's possible to
       beat without  'Flying Dragon Lances',  but you gotta  need a high level.
       Since I doubt you  have a high level,  we have to resort  into using the
       RARE  'Flying Dragon Lance'  that you  can steal  from the  RARE Crystal
       Dragon. Master your Thief, Lancer and Ninja for your two warriors.  Now,
       use the Bare class.  Assign 'Equip Lance' and 'Jump' as  their abilities
       and equip 2 'Flying Dragon Lance's to each of them. The other two should
       master Thief, Summoner and Red Mage.  Use the Bare  class and assign the
       'Summon' and  'X-Magic' abilities.  Equip any relics  that will increase
       their Magic rating.  If you think about using any other jobs because you
       want ABP, don't worry.... he doesn't give any ABP.  If you have the same
       level as my party, you'll be very fine. Your battle should go like this:

       Shinryu - Tidal Wave
       (Party absorbs it because of Coral Rings)
       Reina   - X-Magic--> Summon--> Bahamut 2x (3300 damage each)
       Krile   - X-Magic--> Summon--> Bahamut 2x (3300 damage each)
       Butz    - Jump
       Faris   - Jump
       Shinryu - random attack (Hope he'll use patk, any of his level spells
                 or 'Maelstorm'. If not, you're toast).
       Reina/Krile - X-Magic--> Summon--> Bahamut 2x (3300 damage each)
       Butz    - 9800+ damage x2
       Faris   - 9800+ damage x2 (Shinryu's dead!)

       NOTE: If both of your Summoners failed to  'X-Magic Bahamut' for the 2nd
             time, Shinryu will not die after your second Dragoon. Hope he will
             not use any of his  killer moves  and try  your luck to  'Jump' or
             'X-Magic' again to finish him.

   -+- Easy   Way to beat it:

       Have a Lancer with the '2-Hand' ability of the Ninja and equip them with
       'Flying Dragon Lances'.  That's 8 Dragon Lances  all in all!  It's quite
       hard to to steal all those lances, but you need it if you want this boss
       to be a push over. I think, easy way don't come easy all the time :(

       Once  he  uses 'Tidal Wave',  immediately  let  everyone  in your  party
       'Jump'. After that, he'll be dead :)

Win     : Save Point
STEAL!!!: Genji Armor (Gilgy)
My Level: 43

   -+- Normal way to beat him:

       This guy can be  quite nasty  with your  party.  He has 4  Barriers that
       will prevent you from doing any damage to him. At the start of the fight
       the Barriers will cast Flare and/or Holy to all party members so 'Cure3'
       immediately. Summon 'Bahamut' 3 times to destroy the Barriers.  With the
       Barriers gone,  you can deal damage to  Necrophobe now,  however,  he is
       capable of  trashing you  with his quick  attacks if  'Golem' is not on.
       Summons are still effective, especially 'Leviathan', which is capable of
       dealing up to 6300+ damage!  If you want to get the 'Genji Armor', don't
       kill Necrophobe or else, Gilgamesh will not appear and you won't see his
       heroic deed!

   -+- Easy   Way to beat him:

       Have a Sorcerer  with the  'Shot' (X-Fight) ability and cast  'Break' on
       your blade.  All Barriers are susceptible to 'Break' so if your Sorcerer
       will hit them,  they're dead  for good!  You have 4 chances  to hit them
       with 'Shot'.  Now that the  annoying  Barriers are  off, cast  'Holy' on
       your Sorcerer  (I find it far more effective than 'Flare' sword) to deal
       some good damage...  and don't forget about Leviathan!  Beating him will
       net you the "Final Save Point" in the game.

Weakness: n/a
Win     : Final Fantasy V Finished!!!
My Level: 43

   -+- Normal way to beat it:

       Have a Blue Mage  who knows the spells 'Guardian', 'White Wind', 'Goblin
       Punch' and 'Condemn' with the 'Time' ability; a White Mage with 'Summon'
       ability; and 2 physical attackers,  preferably those who can use 'Double
       Grip'  (Knight)  and/or  'Magic  Sword'  (Sorcerer).  Of  course, 'Shot'
       (X-Fight)  ability is indispensable,  but if you don't have it,  'Double
       Grip' will do.

       The first form  should be  pretty easy.  Use this  chance to   give your
       party  all the  fortifications  it will need.  You Blue Mage  should use
       'Guardian', your Summoner summon  'Golem' and  Time Mage cast  'Haste2'.
       Attack X-Death  with 'Shot'  (X-Fight).  If your Blue Mage is available,
       let him/her  use the  surprisingly useful 'Goblin Punch' (4000+ damage)!
       After 4-5 'Shots' from your attackers, you'll be facing Neo X-Death.

       He got 4 targets for a total of 220000 HP! Don't worry. He's not much of
       a problem. The fortifications you made in the first form will be carried
       over to the  second form.  Unless  you die  or it is  'Dispeled',  it'll
       forever be present.  The most important  one is 'Guardian'.  Spells like
       'Flare', 'Holy' and 'Meteo' will most likely kill you if your 'Shell' or
       'Guardian' is off.  As long as you're  completely fortified,  and with a
       constant  healing  support,  you'll  be fine.  He has this  nasty 'Grand
       Cross' spell,  which is capable  of inflicting  multiple negative status
       ailments to your party.  Be sure you got some curative items  (Revivify/
       Holy Water is the most important).

       Concentrate on  the Target 1 (front).  It has the  lowest HP  so you can
       destroy it quickly.  Summoning Bahamut  and Leviathan is good in dealing
       damage to all  targets at  the same time,  but it's not  that useful and
       they consume too much MP. Keep a steady flow of offense, one target at a
       time, and victory will be yours, OR

       If you failed  to learn  those abilities  mentioned in  the above strat,
       bring up a party  of Samurais.  Give the first  one 'Blue' ability;  the
       second, 'Time' ability; the third, 'White' ability; the fourth, 'Summon'
       ability.

       Start the battle by casting  'Guardian',  'Haste2' and 'Golem'.  The one
       with 'White' ability should prioritize healing.

       Our focus here is to use '$Toss'. This strategy will take long because a
       single '$Toss' can deal 2800+ damage only,  so you would  want to use it
       in every opening available. Good luck!

   -+- Easy   Way to beat it:

       For those who are not rushing through the game, I'm pretty sure you took
       the time to master your jobs.  To make the battle easier, it's good that
       you have mastered,  AT LEAST, your Knight, Thief, and  Sorcerer for your
       physical attackers.  For your magic casters,  you should have gotten all
       the highest level spells for each mage (it's not necessary to master all
       of them).  'White6', 'Black6', 'Time6', 'Summon6' and 'Blue'.  Mastering
       the Red Mage will let you learn 'X-Magic', which will enable you to cast
       2 spells in  one turn.  Mastering  the  Dancer is  indispensable  for an
       easier  battle  because it  will  allow  you to  uequip the  ever useful
       'Ribbon'.

       For your physical attackers,  you may  want to use  these set-up for the
       Bare job:

       * Double Grip + Shot (X-Fight)
       * Magic Sword + Shot (X-Fight)/ 2-Sword

       For one of your magic casters,  you may want to use these set-up for the
       Mime job:

       * X-Magic + Time + Summon

       Note: Unfortunately, Mime can't use 'Ribbon'.

       For the other magic caster,  you may  want to  use these  set-up for the
       Bare job:

       * White + Blue ('White' spell  user should  be protected  with 'Ribbon')

       You can immediately cast 'Condemn' on Target 4 (Back)  to finish  it off
       after the countdown. It's quite useful considering that Target 4 has the
       highest amount of HP of all the 4 parts. That's one less target to worry
       about. Your X-Magic user should cast 'Haste2' and 'Golem'.  'Blue' magic
       user should use 'Guardian'.

       Like  the first  strategy,  'X-Fight'  for physical  attackers,  'Goblin
       Punch' for 'Blue' spell  user and  'Bahamut' for Summoner.  It should be
       enough to finish X-Death, once and for all, OR

       Make a party of mages. The first two should use the Bare class:

       * White + Time
       * White + Blue

       The other two should use the Mime job:

       * X-Magic + Summoner + Time
       * X-Magic + Summoner + Time

       Note: Equip 'Gold Hairpin' to lessen you MP consumption.

       The 'White' magic user is in Bare class so your healer is safe from most
       status ailments.  The battle should, as usual, start by casting 'Haste2'
       and 'Guardian'.

       Your offense revolves around  taking advantage  of the 'Quick'  spell of
       the 'Time' ability. Once you've done it, you have two consecutive turns.
       With the 'X-Magic' ability,  you have a total of  5 CONSECUTIVE ATTACKS!
       To make good use of this, summon 'Bahamut'.  With his 3000-3300+ for the
       first form and  3500-3800+  damage for the  second form.  So, you should
       have an attack pattern like these for your 'X-Magic' users:

       Turn 1: X-Magic --> 'Quick'  , 'Bahamut'
       Turn 2: X-Magic --> 'Bahamut', 'Bahamut'
       Turn 3: X-Magic --> 'Bahamut', 'Bahamut'

       Using this strategy,  a single 'X-Magic' user can deal at least 15000 HP
       of damage for  the first form  and at least  17500 HP of  damage for the
       second form.

       The two Bare job users  should focus  in keeping your  fortifications on
       and HP up.  They should also act as 'Elixir' users for our two 'X-Magic'
       users. Just keep on using these and victory will soon be yours!

 5.0 - VERSION HISTORY
=======================

I was never an old-school  gamer before my experience  with Final Fantasy V in
its Playstation Version  (part of Final Fantasy Anthology).  I don't know why,
but it  is such an  unforgetable experience.  The most note-worthy of it is my
experience with the great bosses.  Well, I really  appreciated the boss fights
more than any other games...  including those in my  personal  favorite, Final
Fantasy VII  and  Metal Gear Solid.  With the  introduction  of emulation by a
friend,  I came into an  idea of playing  this game in its original,  Jap-only
SNES version to re-live the experience.  Now, when  I looked at the  guides at
GameFAQs, I never saw a boss guide for this game so I decided to make one, and
here it is.

sick, (3)I'm VERY busy, (4)I'm on a vacation or (5)I'm already dead :(

I will be more than willing to help in any way I can. God bless!
