Hello, and welcome to the Monster Infusion FAQ for Final Fantasy XIII-2!

My name is sakurayule, and I have created this FAQ to enhance your gaming
experience. Please enjoy it to your heart's content. Any questions, comments,
or critiques should be sent to the email addresses provided at the beginning of
the FAQ.

This guide is copyrighted to me, sakurayule, and my co-authors, BMSirius and

forbidden. Duplication and hosting of this guide is prohibited without our
permission. Consent is granted to the sites listed near the beginning of the
FAQ. Fan-based sites will not be given hosting consent without approval.  

As equal co-authors, BMSirius and Taly932 are granted full copyright

|~|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|~|

True to its namesake, the purpose of this FAQ is to provide you with every bit
of information that there is available about every monster in the game, with an
acute focus on the Infusion Process. The main topics that this FAQ covers are:
tameable monster locations, detailed monster information (min/max base stats,
immunities, resistances, weaknesses, passive abilities, skills, etc.), passive
ability ranks and definitions, Red Lock and Yellow Lock rules, Feral Link
details, suggested builds, and, of course, Infusion mechanics. In addition,
this guide can also be used to complete your Bestiary and acquire the Academic
Rank: Monster Professor Fragment from Dr. M in Academia 4XX AF.

This FAQ will NOT provide strategies for fighting monsters. It will, however,
explore the best means to make the most out of any given tameable monster.

In Academia 4XX AF, if you talk to Dr. M in the reception hall of the Academy's
headquarters, he will send you on a quest to battle every monster in the game.
Once you have fought and defeated every monster, he will give you the Academic
Rank: Monster Professor Fragment. If he does not bestow you with a Fragment,
you have more monsters to find. Note that you are not required to use a
Librascope on every monster; you are only required to fight and kill every
monster at least once. 

This section is a simple depiction of what a completed Bestiary will look like
in your menu. Note that DLC monsters are NOT required to fill the Bestiary and
get all 160 Fragments in the game.

Special Note: You must complete all Paradox Endings to obtain all boss entries.
              In addition, you must fight Proto fal'Cie Adam 4 times by
              purposely choosing incorrect Live Trigger answers. Each time you
              fight him, a different entry is added to your Bestiary. You are
              also capable of losing the Solo Noel vs. Caius battle, so, if you
              are missing a Protector entry, check to see if you have the 5,000
              HP Caius entry. If not, you will need to close Academia 4XX's
              Time Gate and replay until you reach A Dying World 700 AF again.

|~|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|~|

...............................................................................
The in-game tutorial will explain how to use monsters in your party. This 
section will focus on detailed information about each tameable monster.
...............................................................................
To recruit a monster, you must obtain its Crystal. You can do this by defeating
it in battle. There are only 8 exceptions; refer to Section 08 - Special
Monsters [SpecMon] for more information.  
...............................................................................
Generally, you can only capture one of each monster. However, should you have
access to the "Perpetual Battlefield" DLC, you can obtain two copies of the
following special monsters (Leyak, Rangda, Cactuarama, Cactuarina, Nanochu, and
Chichu), so long as you obtain them as Item Drops from Valfodr first. You can
only have one Gigantuar and Twilight Odin at a time.

You can also capture up to three of the following types of Chocobos (Yellow,
Red, Blue, Green, Purple, Black, and White). Golden and Silver Chocobos are
also limited to three copies, unless you have the "Perpetual Battlefield" DLC
and obtain them as Item Drops from Valfodr before obtaining them through
Moogle-related means. If so, then you can have four at a time. The purpose for
having multiple types of Chocobos is so that you can specifically build some of
them for use in Serendipity ??? AF's Chocobo Races.
...............................................................................
Each monster has a specific percentage chance of dropping its Crystal.  These 
percentages will be noted in each monster's details.  You can increase the
percentage in two ways: The Monster Collector Fragment Skill, and by killing a
monster with a Feral Link, as the Synch Rate increases the chances of capturing
a monster. The formula for monster taming is as follows:

Base Tame Rate x (Killing Blow Magnification + Fragment Skill Magnification)

Killing Blow Magnification = Feral Link Synch Rate (300% Cap) or 100% (if no
Feral Link is used as the killing blow)

Note: Monsters with maximum Synch Rates exceeding 300% (e.g. Twilight Odin's
      Zantetsuken, Metallicactuar's Hit-and-Run) have them reduced to 300%.
      If no Feral Link is used to deliver the final blow, the Killing Blow
      Magnification equals 100%.

Fragment Skill Magnification = 100% (if the Monster Collector Fragment Skill
is activated) or 0% (if the Monster Collector Fragment Skill is NOT activated)
...............................................................................
The following Fragment Skills can help you fill your Bestiary and capture all
monsters:

Skill 01: Improved Moogle Throw        -Obtain after Episode 4.
Skill 08: Monster Collector            -Obtain all Vile Peaks Fragments.
Skill 09: Encounter Master             -Obtain all Yaschas Massif Fragments.
Skill 10: Battlemania                  -Obtain all 100% Map Fragments.

All Fragment Skills can be acquired from the Mystic in Serendipity ??? AF.

| Infusion Introduction - [InfIntr] |
+-----------------------------------+

Infusion is a selectable choice in the Monster selection of the Main Menu. This
option allows you to take one monster and infuse its abilities into another.
Although monsters can learn many abilities through Crystarium leveling, most
abilities cannot be acquired through this method alone. Instead, they must be
inherited through Infusion.

The first monster you select in the Infusion Menu is the monster that will 
receive abilities. The second monster you select will give up its abilities,
disappearing after the infusion is complete. This portion of the FAQ will
explain how to control the transference of infused abilities.

| Passive Ability Rank List - [PassARL] |
+---------------------------------------+

Before you learn how to control passive abilities, you must first understand
how they are ranked. Each ability has a Rank, and learning these Ranks is
fundamental for understanding how to control the movement of passive abilities
from one monster to another. 

The following list ranks every infusable passive ability in the game.

| Passive Ability Rules - [PassARu] |
+-----------------------------------+

...............................................................................
Each monster can have a maximum of 10 passive abilities. A higher ranked
passive ability takes priority over a lower ranked passive ability. When you 
are looking at your monster's passive abilities, they will always be organized
with the highest ranked passive abilities on top and the lowest ranked passive
abilities on bottom. If two or more passive abilities are of the same rank, 
they are arranged with the newest ability on top and the oldest on the bottom.
The highest ranked passive abilities always take priority over the lower ranked
passive abilities. If more than 10 passive abilities are present, the lowest
passive ability on the list is removed so that only 10 remain.
...............................................................................

...............................................................................
All passive abilities of the sacrificial monster will be transferred to the 
recipient monster unless certain conditions apply. The conditions involve
Red Locks, Yellow Locks, or going over the 10 passive ability limit.  
...............................................................................

...............................................................................
Certain passive abilities are marked with a Red Lock (RL). Red-locked passive
abilities can NOT be transferred or removed.
...............................................................................

...............................................................................
Certain passive abilities are marked with a Yellow Lock (YL). Yellow-locked 
passive abilities must be created; they are never on a monster by default.
Yellow Locks give your passive abilities a higher rank on the Rank List. This
prevents them from being easily removed while you edit other passive abilities
by giving them higher priority. 
...............................................................................

+-------------------------------+
| Yellow Lock Rules - [YLRules] |
+-------------------------------+ 

Yellow Locks come into play when two passive abilities of the same type are 
infused together. Examples include HP +10% and HP+25% or Strength +10% and
Strength +16%. Note that ATB Advantage and First Strike are the only
"Same Type" passive abilities that do not share similar naming schemes.

Rule Format: 

Recipient Monster's Ability + Sacrificed Monster's Ability = Outcome

o-------------------o
| Section A - Rules |
o-------------------o
...............................................................................
01) Fundamental Rule:

Ability + "Same Type" Ability of Equal or Greater Rank = Yellow-locked Ability
of Equal or Greater Rank

Example: You wish to yellow-lock HP +10% on a monster, because it has a Rank so
         low that it is about to be removed by higher ranked passive abilities.
         You infuse a Lv. 1 Luminous Puma, which also has HP +10%, into your
         original monster. Your original monster's HP +10% will now have a 
         Yellow Lock. Alternatively, if you have a monster with HP +10% and
         infuse a monster with HP +25% into it, the original monster acquires
         a yellow-locked HP +25%. The original monster's HP +10% is overwritten
         with the higher ranked HP +25%, but, because they are "Same Type"
         abilities, it also receives a Yellow Lock.
...............................................................................
02) Disregard Rule:

Ability + "Same Type" Ability of Lower Rank = Original Ability; No Lock

Example: You have a monster with HP +25%. You infuse a monster with HP +10%
         into the original monster. Although they are "Same Type" abilities,
         nothing at will happen. The original monster's HP +25% will remain 
         and will not have a Yellow Lock. The second monster's HP +10% is
         wasted.
...............................................................................
03) Yellow Disregard Rule:

Ability + Yellow-locked "Same Type" Ability of Lower Rank = Original Ability;
No Lock
...............................................................................
04) Yellow Carryover Rule:

Ability + Yellow-locked "Same Type" Ability of Equal or Higher Rank =
Yellow-locked Ability of Equal or Higher Rank
...............................................................................
05) Yellow Upgrade Rule:

Yellow-locked Ability + "Same Type" Ability of Higher Rank = Yellow-locked 
Ability of Higher Rank

Example: You have a monster with a yellow-locked HP +10%. You infuse a monster
         with HP +25% into the original monster. The original monster now has a
         yellow-locked HP +25%. The HP +10% passive ability upgrades to HP +25%
         without affecting the Yellow Lock.
...............................................................................
06) Yellow Unlock Rule: 

Yellow-locked Ability + "Same Type" Ability of Equal or Lower Rank = Original
Ability; No Lock

Example: You have a Monster with a yellow-locked HP +25%. You infuse a monster
         with HP +10% into the original monster. The original monster now has 
         an unlocked HP +25%.
...............................................................................
07) Yellow Negation Rule:

Yellow-locked Ability + Yellow-locked "Same Type" Ability of Equal or Lower 
Rank = Original Ability; No Lock
...............................................................................
08) Yellow Persistence Rule:

Yellow-locked Ability + Yellow-locked "Same Type" Ability of Higher Rank =
Yellow-locked Ability of Higher Rank
...............................................................................
09) Yellow Crystarium Unlock Rule:

Yellow-locked Ability + Crystarium Upgrade of "Same Type" Ability = Crystarium 
Upgrade Ability; Yellow Lock Removed/No Lock

Example: You have a Monster with a yellow-locked HP +10%. Your next Crystarium
         Upgrade is HP +25%. You level up HP +10% to HP +25%, and its HP +25%
         unlocks. If the monster's Crystarium Upgrade is lower than its
         ability, nothing will change.
...............................................................................
10) Red Upgrade Rule:

Red-locked Ability + "Same Type" Ability of Higher Rank OR Red-locked Ability
+ Yellow-locked "Same Type" Ability of Higher Rank = Red-locked Ability of
Higher Rank

Note: Red-locked abilities can be upgraded, but never unlocked. Trying to 
      infuse a passive ability of equal or lesser Rank will cause the infused
      passive ability to disappear.
...............................................................................

o------------------------------o
| Section B - Simplified Rules |
o------------------------------o
...............................................................................
01) Fundamental Rule: 

Non-YL Ability + Non-YL Ability of Equal or Higher Rank = YL Ability of Equal
or Higher Rank
...............................................................................
02) Disregard Rule: 

Non-YL Ability + Non-YL Ability of Lower Rank = Original Ability; No Lock
...............................................................................
03) Yellow Disregard Rule:

Non-YL Ability + YL Ability of Lower Rank = Original Ability; No Lock
...............................................................................
04) Yellow Carryover Rule:

Non-YL Ability + YL Ability of Equal or Higher Rank = YL Ability of Equal or
Higher Rank
...............................................................................
05) Yellow Upgrade Rule:

YL Ability + Non-YL Ability of Higher Rank = YL Ability of Higher Rank
...............................................................................
06) Yellow Unlock Rule:

YL Ability + Non-YL Ability of Equal or Lower Rank = Original Ability; No Lock
...............................................................................
07) Yellow Negation Rule:

YL Ability + YL Ability of Equal or Lower Rank = Original Ability; No Lock
...............................................................................
08) Yellow Persistence Rule:

YL Ability + YL Ability of Higher Rank = YL Ability of Higher Rank
...............................................................................
09) Yellow Crystarium Rule:

YL Ability + Crystarium Upgrade of "Same Type" Ability = Crystarium Upgrade
Ability; YL Removed/No Lock
...............................................................................
10) Red Upgrade Rule:

RL Ability + Non-YL or YL Ability of Higher Rank = RL Ability of Higher Rank
...............................................................................

                                            Woundga
...............................................................................

If the sacrificial monster has infusable Role abilities, you will be prompted 
to select which Role abilities you want to transfer over when you infuse it 
into a recipient monster of the same Role.

The number of Role abilities that can be transfered over is equal to the 
sacrificial monster's current Cystarium Stage. For example, if the sacrificial
monster is at Crystarium Stage 3, you will be able to transfer three Role 
abilities from it to the recipient monster. Note that every time a monster is
rewarded a Crystarium Expansion, it advances by one Crystarium Stage. The
maximum Crystarium Stage level for any monster is five, although some monsters
only have one, even at their strongest.

Sometimes, it is better to not infuse a Role ability, as having too many may
result in a monster using unneeded abilities before using the ones that you
specifically want. In such situations, you can choose not to inherit any Role
abilities. Once a monster is infused with a Role ability, it can never be
removed, so choose carefully.

There is no limit on how many Role abilities a monster can inherit. You can
choose to infuse them all, though this, as mentioned, is not always the best
option.

+-----------------------------------+
| Hidden Role Abilities - [HiddnRA] |
+-----------------------------------+

Each Role possesses a specific, hidden Role ability. To learn them, you must
infuse 99 levels worth of monsters in the opposite Role of your monster. The
99 levels can be earned in any way you wish (e.g. 20 Lv. 5 monsters, 5 Lv. 20
monsters, 99 Lv. 1 monsters, 1 Lv. 99 monster, etc.)

The following list contains every hidden Role ability in the game.

...............................................................................
Commando--: Infuse with 99 levels worth of Ravagers----: learns Jeopardize
Ravager---: Infuse with 99 levels worth of Commandos---: learns Vigor
Sentinel--: Infuse with 99 levels worth of Medics------: learns Reprieve
Saboteur--: Infuse with 99 levels worth of Synergists--: learns Jinx
Synergist-: Infuse with 99 levels worth of Saboteurs---: learns Boon
Medic-----: Infuse with 99 levels worth of Sentinels---: learns Curaja
...............................................................................
Jeopardize: Boosts Chain Bonus effect of the staggered target by 1% upon 
            attacking.
Vigor-----: Increases the Chain Bonus effect of attacks by 1% when your 
            monster's HP is above 70%.
Reprieve--: If HP is above 30%, your monster retains 1 HP after an attack that
            would otherwise lead to an instant KO.
Jinx------: Extends the duration of the target's existing status ailments by 
            five seconds upon inflicting new ones.
Boon------: Extends the duration of the target's existing status enhancements 
            by five seconds upon bestowing new ones.
Curaja----: Restores HP to the target and nearby allies proportional to the
            amount of damage each has taken.
...............................................................................

Recommended monsters for acquiring each hidden Role ability are listed below.
Note that these monsters were chosen based on cost efficiency and availability.
The specific levels were chosen in order to avoid learning higher-ranked 
passive abilities. The lower ranked passive abilities that these monsters
transfer can easily be removed by infusing higher ranked passive abilities.

Jeopardize: Infuse six level 17 Zwerg Scandroids into your Commando.
Vigor-----: Infuse five level 20 Goblins into your Ravager.
Reprieve--: Infuse six level 17 Cait Siths into your Sentinel.
Jinx------: Infuse six level 17 Fachans into your Saboteur.
Boon------: Infuse six level 17 Ceratosaurs into your Synergist.
Curaja----: Infuse six level 17 Pulse Knights into your Medic.

| Example Build: Chichu - [ExBuild] |
+-----------------------------------+

This section explains how filter monsters and Red Locks can be used to your 
benefit, using Chichu, a powerful COM, as an example. It also illustrates many
of the intricacies involved in the Infusion Process, while providing you with
a powerful ally.

First, consider what passive abilities you want to infuse into Chichu. Chichu
does not have any red-locked abilities, so you are free to choose all ten. The
following ten passive abilities and their ranks are used in Chichu's Top-Tier
build.

Chichu, Lv. 70

01) HP +30% (8)
02) Strength +35% (7)
03) Resist Physical +36% (7)
04) Resist Magic +36% (7)
05) Role Resonance (7)
06) Feral Speed II (6)
07) Siphon Boost II (6)
08) Chain Bonus Boost II (6)
09) Attack: ATB Charge II (6)
10) Pack Mentality (4)

Second, note that Chichu naturally learns Attack: ATB Charge II, Feral 
Speed II, and Pack Mentality, so you can avoid infusing monsters for these
abilities. It also learns Strength +25%, a lesser version of Strength +35%.

Third, identify the monsters who possess your desired passive abilities:

HP +30%--------------: Lv. 54 Forked Cat
Strength +35%--------: Lv. 24 Tonberry
Resist Physical +36%-: Lv. 48 Green Chocobo
Resist Magic +36%----: Lv. 23 Mewmao
Role Resonance-------: Lv. 30 Frag Leech
Siphon Boost II------: Lv. 18 Fencer
Chain Bonus Boost II-: Lv. 30 Pink Lily

A quick investigation of these monsters reveals that they do not possess any
undesirable, high-ranked passive abilities that may cause trouble, with the
exception of Tonberry, which learns Magic +35% (7) at Lv. 22. If infused
directly into Chichu, Tonberry's Magic +35% would be higher-ranked than Feral
Speed II, Siphon Boost II, Chain Bonus Boost II, Attack: ATB Charge II, and
Pack Mentality. If Tonberry was infused first, Magic +35% would force one of
the desired passive abilities to disappear.

There are multiple ways to bypass this problem. Consider Yellow Locks. While 
you can yellow-lock every passive ability for Chichu's build, note that Pack
Mentality can only be farmed in unlimited quantities from Chichu and Nanochu if
you have purchased the "Perpetual Battlefield" DLC. For players without this
DLC, sacrificing Nanochu, a one-of-a-kind monster, may not be worth it just to
yellow-lock Chichu's Pack Mentality.

To get around this, consider using a filter monster. A filter monster is a
monster that can be used to get rid of passive abilities that you do not want.
Examine the passive abilities of a Lv. 19 Mud Frog:

Mud Frog, Lv. 19

01) Perpetual Poison (RL)
02) Critical: Tetradefense (RL) 
03) Critical: Bravery (RL)
04) Critical: Faith (RL)
05) Critical: Haste (RL)

Mud Frog has five red-locked passive abilities, so it only has five free
passive slots. If Magic +35% is infused into Mud Frog first, it will only take
five Rank 7 passive abilities to remove it. Take a second look at Chichu's
high-ranked passive abilities. You will notice that it has enough passive
abilities to completely remove Magic +35%.

Instead of infusing directly into Chichu, use Mud Frog. Infuse Tonberry, Green
Chocobo, and Mewmao into Mud Frog in that exact order. At this stage, Mud
Frog's build should look like:

Mud Frog, Lv. 19

01) Perpetual Posion (RL)------->from Mud Frog
02) Critical: Tetradefense (RL)->from Mud Frog
03) Critical: Bravery (RL)------>from Mud Frog
04) Critical: Faith (RL)-------->from Mud Frog
05) Critical: Haste (RL)-------->from Mud Frog
06) Resist Magic +36% (7)------->from Mewmao
07) HP +25% (7)----------------->from Mewmao
08) Resist Physical +36% (7)---->from Green Chocobo
09) Strength +35% (7)----------->from Tonberry
10) Magic +35%% (7)------------->from Tonberry

Because Tonberry was infused before the others, its passive abilities are now
at the bottom of the list.

Infuse Frag Leech, then Forked Cat. You should now have:

Mud Frog, Lv. 19

01) Perpetual Posion (RL)------->from Mud Frog
02) Critical: Tetradefense (RL)->from Mud Frog
03) Critical: Bravery (RL)------>from Mud Frog
04) Critical: Faith (RL)-------->from Mud Frog
05) Critical: Haste (RL)-------->from Mud Frog
06) HP +30% (8)----------------->from Forked Cat
07) Role Resonance (7)---------->from Frag Leech
08) Resist Magic +36% (7)------->from Mewmao
09) Resist Physical +36% (7)---->from Green Chocobo
10) Strength +35% (7)----------->from Tonberry

Magic +35% disappears because Role Resonance was introduced. HP +30% becomes
yellow-locked because Forked Cat's HP +30% is a higher-ranked "Same-Type"
passive ability as Mud Frog's HP +25%, which is an example of the Yellow Lock
Fundamental Rule.

Next, infuse Mud Frog into Chichu, which results in:

Chichu, Lv. 70

01) HP +30% (YL)---------------->from Mud Frog
02) Strength +35% (YL)---------->from Mud Frog
03) Role Resonance (7)---------->from Mud Frog
04) Resist Magic +36% (7)------->from Mud Frog
05) Resist Physical +36% (7)---->from Mud Frog
06) Attack: ATB Charge II (6)--->from Chichu
07) Feral Speed II (6)---------->from Chichu
08) Pack Mentality (4)---------->from Chichu

Infusing Fencer and Pink Lily into Chichu grants it the final two desired
passive abilities, Siphon Boost II and Chain Bonus Boost II. Note that when
Fencer is infused, its Strength +20% unlocks Chichu's yellow-locked
Strength +35%, due to the Yellow Unlock Rule.

In the end, Chichu should look like:

Chichu, Lv. 70

01) HP +30% (YL)---------------->from Chichu
02) Strength +35% (7)----------->from Chichu
03) Role Resonance (7)---------->from Chichu
04) Resist Magic +36% (7)------->from Chichu
05) Resist Physical +36% (7)---->from Chichu
06) Chain Bonus Boost II (6)---->from Pink Lily
07) Siphon Boost II (6)--------->from Fencer
08) Attack: ATB Charge II (6)--->from Chichu
09) Feral Speed II (6)---------->from Chichu
10) Pack Mentality (4)---------->from Chichu

Congratulations! You have successfully built Chichu, one of the most powerful
COMs in the game.

Remember, there are multiple ways to build a monster, as most passive abilities
can be obtained from multiple sources. Save your game before you start to
infuse and play around to see what works best for you. 

+-------------------------------------+
| Step-by-Step Directions - [SSDirec] | 
+-------------------------------------+ 

If you have read everything about Infusion up to this point, you should have a
good grasp on Infusion mechanics. Below is a step-by-step guide that you can
use as a reference when you build your own monsters.

...............................................................................
01) Raise your monster to its maximum level.
...............................................................................
02) Decide on which passive abilities that you want your monster to know. If
    your monster has a Red Lock on one or more passive abilities, remember that
    red-locked passive abilities cannot be removed under any circumstances.
...............................................................................
03) Compile a list of monsters that have the passive abilities you want your
    monster to learn. Refer to the Passive Ability Rank List, so that you can
    rank the abilities you want, and Section 15 - Notable Passive Abilities
    [NPAblty], which recommends monster sources for commonly-infused passive
    abilities.
...............................................................................
04) Do not forget to save your game before infusing.
...............................................................................
05) Infuse the monsters with the passive abilities you desire into your 
    monster. If your monster has gained all of the desired passive abilities, 
    you have succeeded. If not, move to Step 6.
...............................................................................
06) If one of your desired passive abilities disappeared because a higher
    ranked passive ability took priority, proceed to Step 7. If more  than one
    desired passive ability disappeared, or if the unwanted passive ability has
    too high of a Rank, go to Step 8 instead.
...............................................................................
07) Use a filter monster, like Mud Frog, to remove the unnecessary passive
    ability. For example, infuse the monster with the unneeded passive ability 
    into a Lv. 19 Mud Frog. Afterward, infuse the monsters with higher ranked
    desired passive abilities into Mud Frog to bump the unwanted passive 
    ability off of its list. Mud Frog should now have five, unlocked, desired
    passive abilities. Infuse Mud Frog into your monster to transfer all five
    desired passive abilities. Note that a filter monster will only work if the
    unwanted passive ability is of a low enough Rank that it can be removed
    without using Yellow Locks. If it cannot, move to Step 8.
...............................................................................
08) In situations when your monster has more than one ability that needs to be
    removed, or if an undesired passive ability is too highly ranked to be
    bumped off, use Yellow Locks to protect your monster's desired passive
    abilities. By doing so, yellow-locked, desired passive abilities cannot
    be removed, regardless of Rank, unless they are unlocked.
...............................................................................
09) Once your monster has all of your desired passive abilities, infuse all of
    the necessary Role abilities into it. Role abilities should be infused
    after all desired passive abilities are acquired, as to do so earlier might
    result in a more difficult overall Infusion Process. Refer to the Role
    Abilities list, so that you can decide which Role abilities you want.
...............................................................................
10) Finally, infuse 99 levels worth of monsters in the opposite Role of your
    monster to learn its hidden Role ability. Hidden Role abilities should be
    infused after all desired passive abilities are acquired, as to do so
    earlier might result in a more difficult overall Infusion Process.

+-----------------+
| Purpose/History |
+-----------------+

On March 29th, 2012, I, BMSirius, began a special project to gather together
the "build gurus" of the GameFAQs Final Fantasy XIII-2 message board to create
an exhaustive, in-depth, and widely agreed-upon collection of builds for the
most powerful monsters in the game. The project has since expanded to include 
all sorts of monsters, but the goal remains the same - each build will be 
scrutinized by the building community to include only the best passive
abilities, with testing, research, and personal experience to back up all 
information.

Later, on April 29th, 2012, I invited Taly932, an avid contributor to the
project and the editor of Section 12 - Top-Tier Builds [TTBuild] and Section 13
- DLC Builds [DLCBild], to co-author the In-Depth Build Sections with me by
having her write Section 14 - Notable Monster Builds [NMBuild]. As was my case
with sakurayule, her work has since expanded to cover the entirety of the
Monster Infusion FAQ.

| Content Description |
+---------------------+

Each section will have its own explanation as to what kinds of monsters fit
into it and what criteria were used. Please carefully read each heading to
understand what logic was used to place monsters in a specific section.

Aside from those found in Section 14 - Notable Monsters [NMBuild], each monster
build will have the following pieces of information:

...............................................................................
"The Build" is a list of 10 passive abilities that was the most generally
agreed-upon combination of passive abilities by the building community. It will
rarely have only 8 or 9 passive abilities and present options for the remaining
slots - this is only in severe cases where the remaining options were held in
equal regard by various building community members.
...............................................................................
"Monster Materials to Use" contains recommended level-up material choices based
off of the monster's purpose and the Monster Growth Spreadsheets.
...............................................................................
"Crystarium Expansions" (choosing between increasing ATB or learning Bonus
Boosts) are decided based on the number of Expansions the individual monster
gets and the usefulness of each option.
...............................................................................
"Additional Abilities" refers to inheritable Role abilities, such as Ruinga for
COMs, Fearsiphon for RAVs, and the hidden Role abilities, such as Jeopardize
and Vigor. You can search the Tameable Monster List to find monsters that can
teach such abilities, although the hidden Role abilities must be acquired in a
special way.
...............................................................................
"Purpose of this Monster" is an in-depth analysis of what the monster
can and should be used for, including all of the monster's advantages,
disadvantages, and special properties. It also occasionally serves to explain
the reasons for using certain passive abilities on the monster.
...............................................................................
"Alternatives" is a section that serves a dual purpose. The first is to offer
other strong options in place of existing passive abilities, based off of play
style, desired use of the monster, or any other factors. The second is to
address and discourage certain popular passive ability choices that have
recently come under scrutiny. Be sure to read the description of each passive
ability to find out which one of these stipulations applies to it.
...............................................................................
"Infusion Process" shows how to create the monster. The creator of the infusion
process will also be credited. We have NO pretense that we are presenting the
absolute best or most efficient steps - there are multiple ways to create a
monster, and, often times, many different steps can be taken to achieve the
same result. We simply present one build by one author to help players create
their monster. Note that how to add on Alternatives is not addressed here - you
will have to figure that out on your own.

|~|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|~|

Not everyone wants to explore their options. For those that do not, this 
section is for you.

This section only includes monsters who have proven to be instrumental for the
fastest times against the most difficult or farmable post-game opponents. If
you wish to keep your infusions to a minimum while still having everything you 
need, you should create the following monsters:

Chichu (COM) - For Raspatil, Nabaat, Gilgamesh, and Valfodr.
Cactuar (COM) - For Yomi, Typhon & Ultros, and Snow. 
Cloudburst (RAV) - For Gilgamesh, due to its Feral Link, Friendly Fire.
Goblin Chieftain (SEN) - For Gilgamesh, due to its Feral Link, Spirit Infusion.
Purple Chocobo (SYN) - For general use, good against all opponents.
Yakshini (SYN) - For Valfodr, due to its Feral Link, Fanatical Dance.

The builds themselves can be found below, in Section 12 - Top-Tier Builds
[TTBuild].

The monsters outlined above are not necessarily ONLY good for their listed 
battles. The minimalist player should be able to tackle every challenge in the
game by creating well-built versions of these monsters.

Top-Tier can be difficult to define. For the purpose of the Monster Infusion 
FAQ, Top-Tier will be defined in relation to DLC and post-game content. When
you are exploring the main game, there are many other factors to consider in a
monster - availability, material efficiency, combat performance, etc. - all of
which lose significance once you beat the game and progress in strength. In
addition, the post-game consists entirely of difficult bosses, Coliseum
battles, and Crystal/Generator farming. Random encounters lose their difficulty
entirely with a fully-developed party, so that factor will not be addressed.
Instead, the focus will be on the boss and Coliseum battles.

A monster is considered Top-Tier under one of two circumstances:

1. It serves a specific role that it is the absolute best at, such as dealing
   with a particular challenging fight (e.g. Cactuar for Yomi, Typhon & Ultros,
   and Snow).
2. It is the best at what it does, even if what it does is not in demand (e.g.
   Pulse Gladiator, all SABs and MEDs).

Many powerful monsters, including fan favorites, such as Red Chocobo and
Twilight Odin, will not found here, because there are other monsters that do
their jobs better than them. This is not to say that they are weak in any way,
and, if you wish to use them, you should do more than fine. Such monsters can 
be found in Section 14 - Notable Monster Builds [NMBuild]. All DLC-related
monsters can be found in Section 13 - DLC Builds [DLCBild].

When referring to a level, the Monster Infusion FAQ refers to BECOMING that
level. For example, "Potent at level 11" means that you use Potent Materials
when your monster is currently level 10 and is BECOMING level 11. Thus, for
something like "Potent for levels 11-19", you would use Potent for 10->11,
11->12, 12->13, 13->14, 14->15, 15->16, 16->17, 17->18, and 18->19. This would
NOT include 19->20, as 19 is the final level recommended.

When referencing the various Infusion Processes, keep in mind that each
sacrificial monster is to only be raised to the level indicated and is not to
be infused with additional passive abilities unless otherwise specified. Note
that the Infusion Process provided for each monster is NOT the only way to
create it. There are often many paths to the same result, some of which may be
even more efficient than the ones listed here. These are simply examples that
you can utilize if you do not wish to create an Infusion Process of your own.

[TTBLD01]

Monster------: Cactuar
Monster Role-: Commando
Constellation: Cactuar

The Build: 

01) Resist Elements +30% (YL)
02) HP +30% (YL)
03) Strength +35% (YL)
04) Resist Physical +36% (YL)
05) Resist Magic +36% (YL)
06) Role Resonance (YL)
07) Siphon Boost II (YL)
08) Chain Bonus Boost II (YL)
09) Attack: ATB Charge II (YL)
10) Gilfinder II (6)

Monster Materials to Use: All-Power.

Crystarium Expansions---: +2 ATB.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Cactuar Adrenaline, Blindside, Faultsiphon, and
                          Lifesiphon. Then teach it Jeopardize by infusing 99
                          levels worth of RAV monsters into it.

Purpose of this Monster-: Cactuar functions primarily as Yomi's worst enemy. It
                          has Bravery Feeder and Protect Feeder, instantly
                          stealing those buffs from Yomi during its
                          Impenatrable Aura and increasing its own power. It
                          can also use Deprotect Chaser against a Deprotected
                          opponent, which is just as effective as Armor
                          Breaker. This combination of abilities, as well as
                          its prowess in ground and aerial combat, makes it the
                          best COM to use against Yomi, as well as a good
                          choice for Typhon & Ultros and Snow. Unfortunately,
                          it also learns Stagger: Wound, which overrides
                          Deprotect Chaser against staggered opponents. 
                          However, Yomi strategies rarely involve Stagger. It
                          also performs well against Raspatil, and,  with
                          Gilfinder II, makes for an efficient gil farmer.
                          Using Gilfinder II necessitates that Serah and Noel
                          equip Durable Collector's Catalogues in order to earn
                          the most gil at the cost of their accessory slots.
                          Having Item Collector on it negates the need for
                          either Serah or Noel to equip a Durable Collector's
                          Catalog for Trapezohedron farming, as it does not
                          stack with the Durable Collector's Catalog's Item
                          Scavenger MAX. All in all, Cactuar is useful in any
                          situation. If you yellow-lock all of its passive
                          abilities except for Item Collector, you can freely
                          adjust its last passive slot with anything  you wish
                          (Item Collector, Feral Speed II, etc.).

Alternatives:

Critical: Haste (8)-----: This passive ability can be used in place of Item
                          Collector if you no longer need to farm gil or items,
                          as it bestows a rare status buff that SYNs cannnot
                          cast when Cactuar reaches critical condition.

Auto-Bravery (7)--------: For random battles when you start with Cactuar. It
                          also naturally learns it, making it a normal choice.
                          However, it is generally inefficient against bosses,
                          since you should not generally lead with a COM. If
                          you only use Cactuar for general use, consider using
                          Auto-Bravery over Gilfinder II.

Item Collector (6)------: If you want the maximum chance of obtaining Yomi's
                          Trapezohedron (or any other rare item from any
                          opponent) without wasting Serah and Noel's accessory
                          slots on Durable Collector's Catalogs, use this.

Feral Speed II (6)------: Cactuar's Feral Link, 1000 Needles, only inflicts a
			  paltry 1,000 damage. However, Feral Speed II on an
                          active monster also increases the charge rate of the
                          inactive monsters in your Paradigm Pack. Hypnocrowns
                          equipped on Serah or Noel can either substitute for
                          this passive ability or augment it.

Kill: ATB Charge (5)----: For random encounters, this passive ability helps
                          Cactuar relentlessly move from enemy to enemy, since
                          it cannot use area-of-effect attacks well. This
                          serves absolutely no purpose for boss battles.

Pack Mentality (4)------: This passive ability provides an additive 30% damage
                          boost when every monster in your Paradigm Pack shares
                          the same Crystarium Constellation. When all is said
                          and done, though, Pack Mentality only provides a
                          10-15% increase in damage because of how it is
                          combined with other COM damage modifiers. If you want
                          to maximize Cactuar's damage and do not mind limiting
                          your monster choices, consider using Pack Mentality
                          in place of Gilfinder II.

Additional Abilities:

Adrenaline--------------: Lv. 13 Orion or L. v22 Sarracenia

Infusion Notes:

Cactuar's build was inspired by the idea of switching Cactuar's last passive
slot at will to adjust for any situation. The default Gilfinder II will help in
most cases, particularly Raspatil. Infusing a Lv. 40 Gancanagh Ace or a Lv. 14
Apotamkin will replace it with Item Collector for farming Yomi or other
monsters with desirable rare drops (although a single Durable Collector's
Catalog negates that need). If necessary, Gilfinder II can be restored with a
simple Lv. 01 Moblin infusion. If Cactuar no longer serves a farming purpose
for you, Critical: Haste can be used to take advantage of its poor HP,
Auto-Bravery or Kill: ATB Charge can expedite random battles, and Pack
Mentality can strengthen Cactuar during boss battles and Coliseum challenges.

While all monsters have this freedom if you yellow-lock all of their low-rank
passive abilities, Cactuar is especially adept at farming bosses and does not
have a single Red Lock to get in its way. If you do not care for such
versatility, you can likely create a build that uses fewer monsters, so long as
Caterchipillar's Auto-Veil is filtered out.

Monster------: Chichu
Monster Role-: Commando
Constellation: Ochu
 
The Build: 

01) HP +30% (8)
02) Strength +35% (7)
03) Resist Physical +36% (7)
04) Resist Magic +36% (7)
05) Role Resonance (7)
06) Feral Speed II (6)
07) Siphon Boost II (6)
08) Chain Bonus Boost II (6)
09) Attack: ATB Charge II (6)
10) Pack Mentality (4)

Monster Materials to Use: All-Power.

Crystarium Expansions---: +3 ATB.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Chichu Ruinga, Adrenaline, and Lifesiphon. Then
                          teach it Jeopardize by infusing 99 levels worth of
                          RAV monsters into it.

Special Notes-----------: Chichu's Alternatives are tailored toward specific
			  circumstances and should generally only be used on a
			  Chichu that has lost Pack Mentality and has room for 
			  an additional passive ability. 

Purpose of this Monster-: Chichu excels under almost any condition, boasting
                          incredible attack speed, the highest Strength amongst
                          Top-Tier COMs, and various, useful innate skills.
                          Armor Breaker is what truly sets it apart from other
			  COMs, but the addition of Bravery Feeder, Faith 
                          Feeder, and Vigilance Feeder make it useful in any
                          battle. Chichu is one of two monsters in the game 
                          that carries an unlocked Pack Mentality, which you
                          can use to either pass it on to another monster or
                          use an all-Ochu Paradigm Pack to further increase its
                          power. Its biggest disadvantage is that it can't
                          jump, forcing it to use Ruin against aerial and 
			  launched, staggered opponents.

Alternatives:

Auto-Bravery (7) -------: For random battles where you start with Chichu.
                          However, it is generally inefficient against bosses,
                          since you should not generally lead with a COM. If
                          you only use Chichu for general use, consider using
                          Auto-Bravery over Feral Speed II or Pack Mentality.

Resist Pain +66% (6)----: Solely for Gilgamesh. Pain can be removed by using a
                          Painkiller as well, but Resist Pain +66% might
                          prevent it from occurring in the first place. If you
                          are not using Pack Mentality, this could be put in
                          its place.

Gilfinder II (6)--------: If you want to maximize the amount of gil you obtain
                          from Raspatil (or any battle that yields a high
                          amount of gil), consider using this, especially if
                          you do not wish to use Pack Mentality.

Item Collector (6)------: If you want the maximum chance of obtaining Yomi's
                          Trapezohedron (or any other rare item from any
                          opponent) without wasting Serah and Noel's accessory
                          slots on Durable Collector's Catalogs, consider
                          using this, especially if you do not wish to use
                          Pack Mentality.

Kill: ATB Charge (5)----: For random encounters, this passive ability helps
                          Chichu relentlessly move from enemy to enemy, since
                          it cannot use area-of-effect attacks well. This
                          serves little-to-no purpose against Nabaat or
                          Gilgamesh, which is when Chichu is most needed,
                          although it might prove useful against Valfodr's
                          summoned monsters.

Monster------: Blue Chocobo
Monster Role-: Ravager
Constellation: Chocobo

The Build: 

01) Kill: ATB Charge (RL)
02) HP +30% (8)
03) Magic +35% (7)
04) Resist Physical +36% (7)
05) Resist Magic +36% (7)
06) Role Resonance (7)
07) Quick Stagger (7)
08) Siphon Boost II (6)
09) Chain Bonus Boost II (6)
10) Attack: ATB Charge II (6)

Monster Materials to Use: Mana for levels 2-10 and 41-99. Potent for levels 
			  11-40. All-Vitality is viable as well, if you prefer
                          greater durability at the expense of slightly less
                          damage.

Crystarium Expansions---: +3 ATB, +1 Bonus Boost.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Blue Chocobo the full gamut of RAV spells -
                          this includes Fire, Thunder, Fira, Thundara, Firaga,
                          and Thundaga. Then teach it Vigor by infusing 99
                          levels worth of COM monsters into it.

Purpose of this Monster-: Blue Chocobo receives 6 ATB and a single RAV Bonus
                          Boost, which, coupled with its respectable Magic,
			  lets it become a fine RAV in almost any situation.
			  However, it has its downsides. Its casting speed is,
                          on average, slower than popular RAVs like Cloudburst
			  and Lightning, and its damage will suffer against
			  Magic-resistant opponents. Also, keep in mind that 
                          Role Resonance only works in a Tri-Disaster Paradigm,
                          although the 20% boosts to its Strength and Magic are
                          significant under those circumstances.

Alternatives:

Critical: Haste (8)-----: This is always a practical choice for any monster 
                          that does not need additional defenses, but, for
			  Blue Chocobo, it deserves special mention because 
		          Blue Chocobo naturally learns it, it is difficult to 
                          remove, and it is easily a better choice over Role
                          Resonance if you do not use the Tri-Disaster
			  Paradigm.

Stagger Maintenance II--: If Blue Chocobo is the one to stagger an opponent, 
                          Stagger Maintenance II ensures that it stays 
                          staggered for 30% longer. This passive ability is 
                          also synergetic with Quick Stagger. However, it is 
                          often possible to reach the maximum Stagger duration
                          of 45 seconds without this passive ability at all,
                          and, as a result, Stagger Maintenance II serves more
                          as "duration insurance" instead. This can be
                          especially handy for unrelenting opponents like 
                          Gilgamesh and Valfodr.

Pack Mentality (4)------: This passive ability provides an additive 30% damage
                          boost when every monster in your Paradigm Pack shares
                          the same Crystarium Constellation. When all is said
                          and done, though, Pack Mentality only provides a
                          10-15% increase in damage because of how it is
                          combined with other damage modifiers. If you want to
                          maximize Blue Chocobo's damage and do not mind 
                          limiting your monster choices, consider using Pack 
                          Mentality in place of Resist Magic +36% or Role
                          Resonance.

Monster------: Cloudburst
Monster Role-: Ravager
Constellation: Bomb
 
The Build: 

01) Critical: Faith (RL)
02) Auto Enfrost (RL)
03) HP +30% (8)
04) Magic +35% (7)
05) Role Resonance (7)

07) Feral Speed II (6)
08) Siphon Boost II (6)

10) Attack: ATB Charge II (6)

Monster Materials to Use: All-Mana. All-Vitality is viable as well, if you
                          prefer greater durability at the expense of slightly
                          less damage.

Crystarium Expansion----: +1 ATB.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Cloudburst the full gamut of RAV spells - this
                          includes Fire, Blizzard, Thunder, Fira, Blizzara,
                          Thundara, Firaga, Thundaga, and Fearsiphon. Then
                          teach it Vigor by infusing 99 levels worth of
                          COM monsters into it.

Purpose of this Monster-: Cloudburst is a very interesting Ravager - it has 
                          high Magic and superior casting speed, but its
			  behavior is somewhat erratic. Against some opponents
		          (non-moving ones in particular), it casts spells so 
			  fast that its entire 4-spell chain is finished in
			  one second. However, it only has a maximum ATB of 4, 
			  and, against moving opponents, its casting speed can
		          become significantly slow. Pay attention to its
			  activity in any given battle and see if it is the 
                          right RAV for the situation. Also, keep in mind that
                          Role Resonance only works in a Tri-Disaster Paradigm,
			  although the 20% boosts to Strength and Magic are
                          significant under those circumstances.

Alternatives:

Auto-Haste (9)----------: Auto-Haste, coupled with Auto-Bravery, can supply
                          other buffs not bestowed by Cloudburst's Friendly
                          Fire. However, like Auto-Bravery, Cloudburst cannot
                          use this passive ability unless it is used first in
                          battle.

Resist Physical +36% (7): While Resist Physical +36% and Resist Magic +36% are
                          statistically superior to HP +30% and Resist Physical
                          +36% for preserving a higher HP percentage and Vigor,
                          post-game bosses and Coliseum opponents telegraph
                          their most powerful Magic-based attacks, giving you
                          plenty of time to prepare an adequate defense. As
                          such, HP +30% and Resist Physical +36% should prove
                          to be more useful in general, especially against
                          Gilgamesh. However, because Cloudburst has two Red
                          Locks, it only has enough room for HP +30%. On the
                          other hand, it is very practical to remove one of
                          Cloudburst's more situational passive abilities, like
                          Role Resonance or Feral Speed II, to make room for
                          Resist Physical +36%. To completely maximize its
                          defenses, remove both Role Resonance and Feral
                          Speed II so Cloudburst has room for HP +30%, Resist
                          Physical+36%, and Resist Magic +36%.

Resist Magic +36% (7)---: See above.

Auto-Bravery (7)--------: Auto-Bravery, coupled with Auto-Haste, can supply
                          other buffs not bestowed by Cloudburst's Friendly
                          Fire. However, like Auto-Haste, Cloudburst cannot use
                          this passive ability unless it is used first in
                          battle.

Stagger Maintenance II--: If Cloudburst is the one to stagger an opponent,
                          Stagger Maintenance II ensures that it stays
                          staggered for 30% longer. This passive ability is
                          also synergetic with Quick Stagger. However, it is
                          often possible to reach the maximum Stagger duration
                          of 45 seconds without this passive ability at all,
                          and, as a result, Stagger Maintenance II serves more
                          as "duration insurance" instead. This can be
                          especially handy for unrelenting opponents like
                          Gilgamesh and Valfodr.

The Build:

05) HP +30% (8)

07) Resist Physical +36% (7)
08) Resist Magic +36% (7)
09) Feral Speed II (6)
10) Improved Ward (5)

Monster Materials to Use: All-Vitality.

Crystarium Expansion----: +1 Bonus Boost.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Goblin Chieftain Challenge and Deathward.
                          Ignore Entrench, as counterattacks are not desired.
                          Then teach it Reprieve by infusing 99 levels worth of
                          MED monsters into it.

Purpose of this Monster-: Goblin Chieftain has low HP compared to other SENs,
                          even when raised on All-Vitality. While its Strength
                          is much too low to focus on offense in any way,
                          especially since raising its Strength via materials
                          would mean lowering its HP, Goblin Chieftain stands
                          out for a very special reason. As it soaks up damage,
                          it will charge its Feral Link, Spirit Infusion, which
		          slightly recovers Wound damage for the entire party
                          while adding Bravery, Protect, Shell, Veil, and
                          Vigilance. This negates the need for Serah and Noel
                          to become SYNs and pairs up well with the typical
                          augment-oriented SYN in getting the party completely
                          buffed. Raising a SEN is largely unnecessary in this
                          game, but, if you need one, consider Golbin
                          Chieftain. No other SEN can match the advantages of
                          Goblin Chieftain's Feral Link.

Alternatives:

Critical: Haste (8)-----: Although it is unlikely, Goblin Chieftain has the
                          lowest HP of the Top-Tier SENs, so this may be
                          activated against the strongest of opponents. Haste
                          is also a rare buff that can be utilized by the
                          entire Paradigm Pack, which may prove useful in
                          extreme situations.

Critical: Tetradefense(8: Although it is unlikely, Goblin Chieftain has the 
                          lowest HP of the Top-Tier SENs, so this may be 
			  activated against the strongest of opponents. Its
                          Feral Link applies the exact same buffs, however,
                          making this passive ability somewhat redundant.

Rapid Recovery (8)------: This passive ability reduces the duration of status
                          ailments by 25%. This sounds more useful than it is
                          in practice, however. Usually, a status ailment can
                          either be ignored or it needs to be immediately
                          removed by items or Esuna. Neither of these
                          situations benefit from Rapid Recovery. Only use
                          this passive ability if you feel Goblin Chieftain
                          does not benefit from any of the other suggested
                          passive abilities.

Auto-Faith (7)----------: Auto-Faith, coupled with Auto-Haste, can supply other
                          buffs not bestowed by Goblin Chieftain's Spirit
                          Infusion. However, like Auto-Haste, Goblin Chieftain
                          cannot use this passive ability unless it is used
                          first in battle.

Critical: Shield II (6)-: This passive ability reduces incoming damage by 30% 
			  for as long as Goblin Chieftain remains in critical 
			  condition. Unlike other Critical: Buff passive
                          abilities, you do not need to reach critical
                          condition with Goblin Chieftain on the field - you
                          can switch out a monster in critical condition for
                          Goblin Chieftain and still benefit from the ability.

Constellation: Pulsework Soldier

02) Resist Elements +30% (9)
03) HP +30% (8)
04) Rapid Recovery (8)
05) Critical: Tetradefense (8)
06) Resist Physical +36% (7)
07) Resist Magic +36% (7)
08) Feral Speed II (6)
09) Improved Guard II (6)
10) Improved Ward (5)

Monster Materials to Use: All-Vitality.

Crystarium Expansions---: +2 Bonus Boosts.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Pulse Gladiator Mediguard. Then teach it
                          Reprieve by infusing 99 levels worth of MED monsters
                          into it.

Special Notes-----------: You have the option of only raising Pulse Gladiator
                          to Lv. 68 to avoid learning Bonus CP, but the
                          additional passive slot will not be used for anything
                          more significant, and it learns HP +30% at Lv. 70.
                          Before you consider building it, remember that Pulse
                          Gladiator is the only source of Improved Counter II
                          for Infusion purposes, if you have not purchased the
                          "Perpetual Battlefield" DLC. If you do not have 
                          this particular DLC, do not build Pulse Gladiator if
                          you plan to build an offensive SEN in the future.

Purpose of this Monster-: Pulse Gladiator is an impressive SEN, even without
			  any passive abilities infused into it. It naturally
                          resists Wind damage and all status ailments by 90%
                          and halves physical and magic damage. Infusing
                          additional passive abilities makes Pulse Gladiator
                          the greatest defensive SEN in the game. Note that it
                          is not likely to ever reach critical condition and it
                          has a poor Feral Link, so Critical: Tetradefense and
                          Feral Speed II could be replaced, although Feral
                          Speed II helps the rest of the monsters in your 
                          Paradigm Pack recharge their Feral Links as well.
                        
Alternatives:

Resilience +40% (8)-----: Due to compounding resistances, Pulse Gladiator only
                          benefits from a mere 4% in ailment resistance. 
			  However, some may consider an extra 4% in ailment
			  resistance to be superior to Critical: Tetradefense
			  or Feral Speed II.

Critical: Shield II (6)-: This passive ability reduces incoming damage by 30% 
			  for as long as Pulse Gladiator remains in critical 
			  condition. Unlike other Critical: Buff passive
                          abilities, you do not need to reach critical
			  condition with Pulse Gladiator on the field - you can
			  switch out a monster in critical condition for Pulse
			  Gladiator and still benefit from the ability.

04) Magic +35% (7)

07) Feral Speed II (6)

09) Chain Bonus Boost II (6)
10) Attack: ATB Charge II (6)

Monster Materials to Use: Mana for levels 33, 35, 38, 40, 52-55, and 57-99. 
			  Potent for levels 2-32, 34, 36-37, 39, 41-51, and 56.

Crystarium Expansions---: +2 ATB, +2 Bonus Boosts.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Black Chocobo Jinx by infusing 99 levels worth
                          of SYN monsters into it. Then you can choose to add
                          Poison, Dispel, Curse, Fog, and/or Pain if you wish,
                          or you can keep it focused on its natural Deprotect,
                          Deshell, and Imperil. If you need the generally
                          ineffecient area-of-effect spells for any reason, you
                          can add Deshellga, Poisonga, Imperilga, Dispelga,
                          Cursega, and/or Painga (Fogga can't be learned).
			  Infusing additional abilities will not disrupt SAB 
			  A.I., assuming that you wisely choose -Cross or -Wide
			  Paradigms.

Special Notes-----------: Black Chocobo's red-locked ATB Advantage can be
			  upgraded to First Strike through infusion.

Purpose of this Monster-: Black Chocobo is an all-around terrific SAB if you
                          need a monster to help you inflict status ailments.
                          It has a minimal selection of Strength-based attacks,
                          but it will ignore these in favor of Magic-based ones
                          unless the opponent is heavily resistant to Magic. 
                          Aside from Wound, its core moveset has the best
                          damage-enhancing debuffs.

Alternatives:

Auto-Haste (9)----------: If you are certain that you will begin battles with
			  Black Chocobo, this passive ability can be useful, as 
			  Haste cannot be cast by SYNs. Because of Haste's
			  beneficial nature, which can be transfered to the 
			  rest of the Paradigm Pack, consider using this
                          passive ability over Feral Speed II.

Resist Elements +30% (9): Although Black Chocobo lacks an elemental weakness, 
                          this defensive passive ability may keep it safe from 
			  powerful elemental attacks, such as Typhon's
                          Fireball. If you find yourself frequently thwarted by
			  elemental attacks, try this.

Resilience +40% (8)-----: This bestows a 40% chance to resist all status
                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous
                          status ailments, Pain and Fog, are better mitigated
                          by Resist Pain +66% and Resist Fog +66%. The
                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense
                          against Daze working in conjunction with Resilience
                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The
                          remaining status ailments are not as dangerous in
                          post-game and can be quickly removed by items or SYN
                          buffs if necessary. As such, Resilience +40%'s value
                          for post-game content is diminished.

Role Resonance (7)------: If you use the Infiltration Paradigm, consider this
			  passive ability, as it provides a 20% boost to Black
			  Chocobo's Strength and Magic.

Auto-Faith (7)----------: If you are certain that you will begin battles with 
			  Black Chocobo, this passive ability can be useful,
                          as it increases Black Chocobo's Magic damage. Because
                          of Faith's Magic boost, which can be transfered to 
			  the rest of the Paradigm Pack, try using this passive
                          ability over Feral Speed II.

Pack Mentality (4)------: This passive ability provides an additive 30% damage
                          boost when every monster in your Paradigm Pack shares
                          the same Crystarium Constellation. When all is said
                          and done, though, Pack Mentality only provides a
                          10-15% increase in damage because of how it is
                          combined with other damage modifiers. If you want to
                          maximize Black Chocobo's damage and do not mind
                          limiting your monster choices, consider using Pack
                          Mentality in place of Feral Speed II.

                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous
                          status ailments, Pain and Fog, are better mitigated
                          by Resist Pain +66% and Resist Fog +66%. The
                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense
                          against Daze working in conjunction with Resilience
                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The
                          remaining status ailments are not as dangerous in
                          post-game and can be quickly removed by items or SYN
                          buffs if necessary. As such, Resilience +40%'s value
                          for post-game content is diminished.

Role Resonance (7)------: If you use the Infiltration Paradigm, consider this
			  passive ability, as it provides a 20% boost to
			  Chelicerata's Strength and Magic.

Auto-Faith (7)----------: If you are certain that you will begin battles with 
			  Chelicerata, this passive ability can be useful,
                          as it increases Chelicerata's Magic damage. Because
                          of Faith's Magic boost, which can be transfered to 
			  the rest of the Paradigm Pack, try using this passive
                          ability.

Monster Materials to Use: Mana for levels 2-20 and 61-99. Potent for levels
                          21-60.

Crystarium Expansions---: +2 ATB, +2 Bonus Boosts.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Chelicerata Deshell. Afterward, teach it Jinx
                          by infusing 99 levels worth of SYN monsters into it.
                          Then you can choose to add Poison, Curse, and/or Pain
                          if you wish. If you need the generally inefficient
                          area-of-effect spells for any reason, you can add
                          Poisonga, Dispelga, Cursega, and/or Painga (Fogga
                          can't be learned). Infusing additional abilities will
                          not disrupt SAB A.I., assuming that you wisely choose
                          -Cross or -Wide Paradigms.

Special Notes-----------: Do NOT teach Chelicerata Wound and Woundga. It is 
			  naturally blessed to not know these abilities, 
                          because SABs tend to add one Wound spell at the
                          beginning of each attack chain against
                          Wound-vulerable foes, which hampers its debuffing
                          potential.

Purpose of this Monster-: Chelicerata is comparable to Black Chocobo. It has
                          more Magic than Black Chocobo, but it suffers from
                          lower HP and a poorer casting speed. For what it
                          matters, it has slightly higher Strength and a
                          Strength-based Feral Link, Deathscythe, as opposed to
                          Black Chocobo's Magic-based Kweh Kweh. Chelicerata's
                          biggest advantage is that it has Improved Debuffing
                          II rather than Black Chocobo's weaker Improved
                          Debuffing, meaning that, spell-for-spell, it has a
                          higher chance of inflicting status ailments.

Monster------: Purple Chocobo
Monster Role-: Synergist
Constellation: Chocobo

Monster Materials to Use: Mana for levels 2-10, 20, 30, and 40-98.Potent for 
			  levels 11-19, 21-29, and 31-39.

Crystarium Expansions---: +3 ATB, +1 Bonus Boost. However, choosing +2 ATB, +2
                          Bonus Boosts instead is also viable if you prefer
                          buff duration over ATB.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Purple Chocobo Faithga, Enfire, Enfrost and
                          Enthunder. Then teach it Boon by infusing 99 levels
                          worth of SAB monsters into it.

Special Notes-----------: Only raise it to Lv. 98 to avoid learning Veil, at
                          the cost of 80 HP and 42 Magic.

Purpose of this Monster-: Purple Chocobo's high maximum level, natural
                          defenses, and skillset makes it the best
                          augment-oriented SYN in the game. It can either
                          immediately transfer its Auto-Buffs to the rest of
                          the Paradigm Pack at the beginning of battle or stay
                          on the field long enough to enhance Serah and Noel
                          with augments while tanking attacks.

Alternatives:

HP +30% (8)-------------: Resist Physical +36% and Resist Magic +36% are
                          statistically superior to HP +30% for maintaining
                          Adrenaline and Vigor on COMs and RAVs. For maximum
                          defense, consider replacing Auto-Bravery of First
                          Strike for this.

Auto-Vigilance (8)------: If you plan to use Purple Chocobo solely for passing
                          on Auto-Buffs to the rest of the Paradigm Pack, you
                          could replace Auto-Tetradefense with Auto-Vigilance,
                          Auto-Protect, and Auto-Shell in order to extend their
                          durations for 30 seconds more. If you decide to do
                          this, consider replacing Resist Physical +36% and
                          Resist Magic +36% with Auto-Protect and Auto-Shell.
                          Remember, while it is much easier to use these
                          replacements instead of capturing Tezcatlipoca for
                          Auto-Tetradefense, they are not necessarily the most
                          optimal options.

Auto-Protect (7)--------: See above.

Auto-Shell (7)----------: See above. 

Defense Maintenance (5)-: This passive ability extends the duration of Protect,
                          Protectga, Shell, Shellga, Veil, Veilga, and
                          Vigilaga. Since defensive buffs last longer than
                          augments, though, the extended duration may not be 
                          necessary for most battles.

Monster Materials to Use: Mana for levels 2-10, 12-20, and 22-70. Potent for
                          levels 11 and 21.

Crystarium Expansions---: +3 ATB. However, choosing +1 ATB, +2 Bonus Boosts 
                          instead is also viable if you prefer buff duration 
                          over ATB.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Yakshini Protectga, Shellga, Enfire, Enfrost,
                          Enthunder, and Enaero. Then teach her Boon by
                          infusing 99 levels worth of SABs into her.

Special Notes-----------: A Lv. 59 Yakshini only possesses augmentation spells,
                          at the cost of 1317 HP and 153 Magic. She is also
                          the only source of Defense Maintenance for infusion
                          purposes.

Purpose of this Monster-: Unlike Purple Chocobo, Yakshini does not appear to 
                          be that great of a SYN at first glance. Her Magic is
                          subpar in comparison to other SYNs, she cannot have a
                          SYN Bonus Boost without sacrificing ATB segments, she
                          cannot serve as an augment-focused SYN without
                          severely crippling her HP and Magic, and she lacks
                          the valuable passive ability, Augment Maintenance II,
                          which would have somewhat compensated for her poor
                          Magic. While she does have some minor merits, such as
                          a fast casting speed, useful red-locked passive
                          ability, and the capability to serve as a competent
                          all-around SYN, Yakshini shines in battle because
                          of her Feral Link, Fanatical Dance. Fanatical Dance
                          bestows Protect, Shell, Bravery, Faith, Veil, and
                          Vigilance, with each buff in Yakshini's Feral Link
                          applying Boon to all buffs before it, which results
                          in a long-lasting application of almost every buff in
                          the game.

Alternatives:

Resist Elements +30% (9): Although Yakshini lacks an elemental weakness, this
                          defensive passive ability may keep her safe from
                          powerful elemental attacks, such as Typhon's
                          Fireball. If you find yourself frequently thwarted by
                          elemental attacks, try this.

Resilience +40% (8)-----: This bestows a 40% chance to resist all status
                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous
                          status ailments, Pain and Fog, are better mitigated
                          by Resist Pain +66% and Resist Fog +66%. The
                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense
                          against Daze working in conjunction with Resilience
                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The
                          remaining status ailments are not as dangerous in
                          post-game and can be quickly removed by items or SYN
                          buffs if necessary. As such, Resilience +40%'s value
                          for post-game content is diminished.

Auto-Vigilance (8)------: If you plan to use Yakshini solely for passing on
                          Auto-Buffs to the rest of the Paradigm Pack, you
                          could replace Auto-Tetradefense with Auto-Vigilance,
                          Auto-Protect, and Auto-Shell in order to extend their
                          durations for 30 seconds more. If you decide to do
                          this, consider replacing Resist Physical +36% and
                          Resist Magic +36% with Auto-Protect and Auto-Shell.
                          Remember, while it is much easier to use these
                          replacements instead of capturing Tezcatlipoca for
                          Auto-Tetradefense, they are not necessarily the most

                          Vigilaga. Since defensive buffs last longer than
                          augments, though, the extended duration may not be

06) Resist Physical +36% (7)
07) Resist Magic +36% (7)
08) Feral Speed II (6)

Remaining 2 Slots:

Resist Elements +30% (9): Although Flanitor lacks an elemental weakness, this
                          defensive passive ability may keep it safe from
			  powerful elemental attacks, such as Typhon's
                          Fireball. If you find yourself frequently thwarted by
			  elemental attacks, try this.

Resilience +40% (8)-----: This bestows a 40% chance to resist all status
                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous
                          status ailments, Pain and Fog, are better mitigated
                          by Resist Pain +66% and Resist Fog +66%. The
                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense
                          against Daze working in conjunction with Resilience
                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The
                          remaining status ailments are not as dangerous in
                          post-game and can be quickly removed by items or SYN
                          buffs if necessary. As such, Resilience +40%'s value
                          for post-game content is diminished.

Role Resonance (7)------: If you use the Salvation Paradigm, this passive 
			  ability gives a 20% increase to Flanitor's Magic,
			  offering a small boost to Cure effectiveness. Should
                          you find yourself needing three MEDs on the field at
                          once, consider Role Resonance.

Improved Raise II (6)---: This passive ability doubles the effect of Raise.
			  However, Flanitor will cure the dying before it
                          revives the KO'd, although this is not relevant if
                          you have one KO'd character and the other two are in
                          good health. In that time, you can use a Phoenix Down
                          or Phoenix Blood, which revives an ally, removes
                          Wound damage, and adds beneficial buffs like Protect
                          & Shell or Haste. If you dislike items for any
                          reason, Improved Raise II should prove useful. In
                          addition, there is a chance that Flanitor will
                          respond to a fallen ally with a quick Raise (assuming
                          there is no other damage to heal), and, in that
                          instance, you would benefit from this.

Critical: Faith (5)-----: Since Flanitor has naturally low HP, it might reach
                          critical condition more often than White Chocobo or
                          Green Chocobo. This passive ability will bestow
                          Faith as soon as Flanitor enters critical condition,
                          boosting the potency of its Cure spells. In addition,
                          Flanitor can pass Faith on to the rest of the
                          Paradigm Pack.

Critical: Bravery (5)---: While Bravery does nothing for Flanitor, this passive
			  ability can be used to pass Bravery on to the rest of
			  the Paradigm Pack after Flanitor reaches critical
                          condition.

Monster Materials to Use: Mana for levels 3, 5, 7, 9-10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20-30,
			  33, 35, 38, and 40. Potent for levels 2, 4, 6, 8, 11,
                          13, 15, 17, 19, 31-32, 34, 36-37, and 39.

Crystarium Expansion----: +1 ATB.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Flanitor Curaja by infusing 99 levels worth of
                          SEN monsters into it.

Purpose of this Monster-: Flanitor is a useful MED that is much easier to raise
                          compared to White Chocobo and Green Chocobo. Its
                          greatest asset is its Feral Link, Hyper Rescue, which
                          heals the entire party and quickly recharges. While
                          its HP is much lower than other MEDs, it can be used
                          to your advantage, since Flanitor will require less
                          Cure spells to fully recover and has a higher chance
                          of activating Critical: Buff passive abilities. Its
                          main fault is Flanitor's single Crystarium Expansion,
                          so it cannot chain as many Cure spells together, its
                          ATB Gauge recharge rate is slightly slower, and it
                          does not gain any additional Cure power from MED
                          Bonus Boost.

[TTBLD12]

Monster------: Green Chocobo
Monster Role-: Medic
Constellation: Chocobo
 
The Build: 

01) Improved Cure II (RL)
02) Critical: Faith (RL)
03) Critical: Haste (8)
04) Critical: Tetradefense (8)
05) HP +30% (8)
06) Magic +35% (7)
07) Feral Speed II (6)
08) Critical: Bravery (5)

Remaining 2 Slots:

Resist Elements +30% (9): Although Green Chocobo lacks an elemental weakness,
                          this defensive passive ability may keep it safe from 
			  powerful elemental attacks, such as Typhon's
                          Fireball. If you find yourself frequently thwarted by
			  elemental attacks, try this.

Resilience +40% (8)-----: This bestows a 40% chance to resist all status
                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous
                          status ailments, Pain and Fog, are better mitigated
                          by Resist Pain +66% and Resist Fog +66%. The
                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense
                          against Daze working in conjunction with Resilience
                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The
                          remaining status ailments are not as dangerous in
                          post-game and can be quickly removed by items or SYN
                          buffs if necessary. As such, Resilience +40%'s value
                          for post-game content is diminished.

Resist Physical +36% (7): Green Chocobo naturally learns this defensive passive
                          ability. Under normal circumstances, it would
                          make sense to leave it on Green Chocobo. You could
                          even pair it with Resist Magic +36% to maximize Green
                          Chocobo's defenses. However, adding either reduces
                          Green Chocobo's chances to reach critical condition.

Resist Magic +36% (7)---: See above.

Role Resonance (7)------: If you use the Salvation Paradigm, this passive 
			  ability gives a 20% increase to Green Chocobo's
			  Magic, offering a small boost to Cure effectiveness.
                          Should you find yourself needing three MEDs on the
                          field at once, consider Role Resonance.

Ally KO: Power Surge II-: This passive ability increases Green Chocobo's
                          healing capabilities while an ally is KO'd. However,
                          it stops working the moment that the fallen ally is
                          revived.

Improved Raise II (6)---: This passive ability doubles the effect of Raise.
			  However, Green Chocobo will cure the dying before it
                          revives the KO'd, although this is not relevant if
                          you have one KO'd character and the other two are in
                          good health. In that time, you can use a Phoenix Down
                          or Phoenix Blood, which revives an ally, removes
                          Wound damage, and adds beneficial buffs like Protect
                          & Shell or Haste. If you dislike items for any
                          reason, Improved Raise II should prove useful. In
                          addition, there is a chance that Green Chocobo will
                          respond to a fallen ally with a quick Raise (assuming
                          there is no other damage to heal), and, in that
                          instance, you would benefit from this.

Critical: Power Surge II: This passive ability boosts Green Chocobo's Cure
                          potency for as long as it remains in critical
                          condition. Assuming that it is healing itself,
                          though, it will only take Green Chocobo one or two
                          spells to recover, reducing its effectiveness.

Critical: Shield II (6)-: This passive ability reduces incoming damage by 30%
                          for as long as Green Chocobo remains in critical
                          condition, potentially saving it from dying. However,
                          unlike other Critical: Buff passive abilities, the
                          defensive bonus disappears the moment Green Chocobo
                          recovers from critical condition, limiting its
                          overall usefulness.

Pack Mentality (4)------: This passive ability provides an additive 30% damage
                          boost when every monster in your Paradigm Pack shares
                          the same Crystarium constellation. When all is said
                          and done, though, Pack Mentality only provides a
                          10-15% increase in damage because of how it is
                          combined with other damage modifiers. If you want to
                          maximize Green Chocobo's spells and do not mind
                          limiting your monster choices, consider using Pack
                          Mentality.

Monster Materials to Use: All-Mana.

Crystarium Expansions---: +3 ATB, +1 Bonus Boost.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Green Chocobo Esuna and Esunada. Then teach it
                          Curaja by infusing 99 levels worth of SEN monsters
                          into it.

Special Notes-----------: Only raise Green Chocobo to Lv. 98 to avoid learning
                          Bonus CP, at the cost of 81 HP and 21 Magic.

Purpose of this Monster-: Green Chocobo possesses enough defenses to reliably
                          bestow a myriad of status enhancements via Critical:
                          Buff passive abilities without fear of being
                          immediately KO'd afterward. If you can predict your
                          opponent's strongest attacks, you can switch to Green
                          Chocobo just in time to reach critical condition and
                          before it starts healing. If properly executed, Green
                          Chocobo will be imbued with the most helpful buffs,
                          which it can then pass on to the other monsters in
                          your Paradigm Pack after Green Chocobo is finished
                          healing. Green Chocobo also learns Cheer, so if you
                          need to use its Feral Link, Kweh Kweh, for any
                          reason, Cheer will help its Feral Link Gauge recharge
                          faster.

Infusion Process (by iamins4ne):

Gather these Monsters:

01) Lv. 98 Green Chocobo
02) Lv. 22 Tonberry
03) Lv. 54 Forked Cat
04) Lv. 23 Pulse Gladiator
05) Lv. 45 Blue Chocobo
06) Lv. 01 Gancanagh
07) Lv. 18 Red Chocobo

Infuse in this order:

01) Lv. 98 Green Chocobo <-- Lv. 22 Tonberry
02) Lv. 98 Green Chocobo <-- Lv. 54 Forked Cat
03) Lv. 98 Green Chocobo <-- Lv. 23 Pulse Gladiator

05) Lv. 98 Green Chocobo <-- Lv. 01 Gancanagh
06) Lv. 98 Green Chocobo <-- Lv. 18 Red Chocobo

This will leave Green Chocobo with Resist Physical +36% above Feral Speed II
and Critical: Bravery. If you do not wish to include Resist Physical +36% in
its build, make sure to yellow-lock the lower ranked passive abilities.

Resilience +40% (8)-----: Lv. 72 Necrosis
Resist Physical +36% (7): Lv. 48 Green Chocobo
Resist Magic +36% (7)---: Lv. 23 Mewmao

Monster------: White Chocobo
Monster Role-: Medic
Constellation: Chocobo

The Build:

01) Feral Surge (RL)
02) Feral Fatigue (RL)
03) Resist Elements +30% (9)
04) HP +30% (8)
05) Resilience +40% (8)
06) Critical: Haste (8)
07) Magic +35% (7)
08) Resist Physical +36% (7)
09) Resist Magic +36% (7)
10) Improved Cure II (6)

Monster Materials to Use: Mana for levels 21-30, 51-70, and 91-99. Potent for 
			  levels 2-20, 31-50, and 71-90.

Crystarium Expansions---: +3 ATB, +1 Bonus Boost.

Additional Abilities----: Teach White Chocobo Curaja by infusing 99 levels
                          worth of SEN monsters into it.

Purpose of this Monster-: White Chocobo naturally halves physical and magic
			  attacks. When infused with defensive passive
			  abilities, White Chocobo can help sustain your party
                          in the toughest of situations.

Alternatives:

Role Resonance (7)------: If you use the Salvation Paradigm, this passive 
			  ability gives a 20% increase to White Chocobo's
			  Magic, offering a small boost to Cure effectiveness.
                          Should you find yourself needing three MEDs on the
                          field at once, consider replacing Resilience +40% for
                          this.

Feral Speed II (6)------: White Chocobo's Feral Fatigue makes it a bad idea to
                          use its Feral Link, Kweh, in the middle of battle.
			  However, keep in mind that Feral Speed II also helps
			  to recharge the Feral Link Gauges of the rest of your
			  Paradigm Pack, too. If your other two monsters have
			  powerful Feral Links, you might want to use this
                          passive ability. If you monitor White Chocobo's Feral
			  Link Gauge you might be able to time it so that Feral
			  Surge activates in the midst of an important battle,
                          giving White Chocobo a wide range of useful buffs.

Ally KO: Power Surge II-: This passive ability increases White Chocobo's
                          healing capabilities while an ally is KO'd. However,
                          it stops working the moment that the fallen ally is
                          revived.

Improved Raise II (6)---: This passive ability doubles the effect of Raise.
			  However, White Chocobo will cure the dying before it
                          revives the KO'd, although this is not relevant if
                          you have one KO'd character and the other two are in
                          good health. In that time, you can use a Phoenix Down
                          or Phoenix Blood, which revives an ally, removes
                          Wound damage, and adds beneficial buffs like Protect
                          & Shell or Haste. If you dislike items for any
                          reason, Improved Raise II should prove useful. In
                          addition, there is a chance that White Chocobo will
                          respond to a fallen ally with a quick Raise (assuming
                          there is no other damage to heal), and, in that
                          instance, you would benefit from this.

Critical: Faith (5)-----: The chances of White Chocobo reaching critical
                          condition are slim, but, if it does, Critical: Faith
                          will provide a nice boost to Cure potency. In
                          addition, White Chocobo can pass Faith on to the rest
                          of the Paradigm Pack.

Pack Mentality (4)------: This passive ability provides an additive 30% damage
                          boost when every monster in your Paradigm Pack shares
                          the same Crystarium constellation. When all is said
                          and done, though, Pack Mentality only provides a
                          10-15% increase in damage because of how it is
                          combined with other damage modifiers. If you want to
                          maximize White Chocobo's spells and do not mind
                          limiting your monster choices, consider using Pack
                          Mentality.

Rather than incorporating them into Tiers, DLC monsters have been given their 
own section, because they are not an essential part of any post-game strategy. 
DLC monsters tend to have several unique properties that make them interesting 
and fun monsters. Download them if you want to fight them, use them if you like
them, and enjoy.

In this section, you may see an inordinate amount of references to Blitz/Ruinga
attacks or random encounters, especially compared to the Top Tier section, 
which, for the most part, lacked such discussion. This is because the DLC
monsters tend to have exclusive versions of these abilities or a combination of
special properties that give them a unique edge. For example, Amodar's Blitz
does not require him to move and launches opponents; Omega's Ravage draws foes
toward it in order to prepare for its Blitz; Typhon has Auto Enfire, Auto
Enaero, Weak Spot, and a devastating Ruinga; Gilgamesh has both Armor Breaker
and Mind Piercer for his Blitz and Ruinga. These properties are exclusive
enough to warrant the discussion of random encounters for these monsters. While
this section will still follow the pattern started in Section 12 - Top-Tier
Builds [TTBuild] by prioritizing boss-killing builds, random encounter-killing
alternatives will also be explored, as they tend to make farming faster and
more fun.

Purpose of this Monster-: Omega's physical attack speed is just as impressive
                          as Chichu's. Omega's Attack animation consists of
                          three lasers per Attack, with each laser
                          independently activating Siphon Boost II and
                          Attack: ATB Charge II, which completely restores its
                          ATB and results in non-stop attacking. In addition,
                          its Ravage is a useful electric shockwave that stuns
                          and draws opponents in front of it, usually in
                          preparation for its flamethrower-like Blitz attack.
                          Omega's faults are threefold. First, it lacks useful
                          abilities, like Armor Breaker or Bravery Feeder.
                          Second, if its opponent is highly mobile, it must
                          take time to reposition itself between attacks.
                          Finally, it has the red-locked Leadenstrike, so you
                          want to make sure that its ATB starts out full. This
                          can be done by preemptively striking opponents or
                          timing Omega's switch-ins with ATB Refreshes. While
                          First Strike can also be used to circumvent
                          Leadenstrike, it is not necessary, as other means can
                          be used without wasting one of Omega's limited
                          passive slots.

Alternatives:

Resist Elements +30% (9): Because Omega is weak to Lightning attacks, this 
                          passive ability may keep it safe from powerful
                          Lightning attacks, such as Valfodr's Thundaga. If you
                          find yourself frequently thwarted by elemental
                          attacks, try this.

Resilience +40% (8)-----: This bestows a 40% chance to resist all status
                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous
                          status ailments, Pain and Fog, are better mitigated
                          by Resist Pain +66% and Resist Fog +66%. The
                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense
                          against Daze working in conjunction with Resilience
                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The
                          remaining status ailments are not as dangerous in
                          post-game and can be quickly removed by items or SYN
                          buffs if necessary. As such, Resilience +40%'s value
                          for post-game content is diminished.

Resist Physical +36% (7): While Resist Physical +36% and Resist Magic +36% are
                          statistically superior to HP +30% and Resist Physical
                          +36% for preserving a higher HP percentage and
                          Adrenaline, post-game bosses and Coliseum opponents
                          telegraph their most powerful Magic-based attacks,
                          giving you plenty of time to prepare an adequate
                          defense. As such, HP +30% and Resist Physical +36%
                          should prove to be more useful in general, especially
                          against Gilgamesh. However, because Omega naturally
                          halves physical damage, HP +30% and Resist Magic +36%
                          are generally superior defensive passive abilities,
                          since Resist Physical +36%'s benefits are reduced.

Auto-Bravery (7)--------: Omega's unique Ravage and Blitz attacks make it a
                          fun and effective COM for random battles. Use this 
			  passive ability if you only plan to use Omega for
			  this specific purpose. However, it is generally
                          inefficient against bosses, since you should not
                          generally lead with a COM. If you only use Omega for
                          general use, consider using Auto-Bravery over Resist
                          Magic +36%.

Pack Mentality (4)------: This passive ability provides an additive 30% damage
                          boost when every monster in your Paradigm Pack shares
                          the same Crystarium Constellation. When all is said
                          and done, though, Pack Mentality only provides a
                          10-15% increase in damage because of how it is
                          combined with other damage modifiers. If you want to
                          maximize Omega's damage and do not mind limiting your
                          monster choices, consider using Pack Mentality in
                          place of Resist Magic +36%.

Monster------: Amodar
Monster Role-: Commando
Constellation: Fantasy, Champion

The Build: 

01) Ally KO: Power Surge II (RL)
02) HP +30% (8)
03) Strength +35% (7)
04) Resist Physical +36% (7)

07) Feral Speed II (6)
08) Siphon Boost II (6)
09) Chain Bonus Boost II (6)
10) Attack: ATB Charge II (6)

Monster Materials to Use: All-Power.

Crystarium Expansions---: None.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Amodar Ruinga, Faultsiphon and Lifesiphon. Then
                          teach him Jeopardize by infusing 99 levels worth of
                          RAV monsters into him.

Purpose of this Monster-: Amodar's high HP allows him to serve as an offensive
			  tank. Instead of using a SEN for the Tortoise 
			  Paradigm, you can substitute Amodar and use 
			  Guarded Assault instead,  which allows you to
			  stabilize the opponent's Chain Gauge while reducing
			  damage to your party. Amodar is a slow attacker for 
			  ground combat, and his Strength is lower than the
			  Top-Tier COMs. However, he has two unique properties
                          that sets him apart from others. First, he throws a 
			  Fire-based grenade for his Blitz attack, which,
			  upon exploding, launches all of his opponents into 
			  the air. Second, against launched opponents, flying 
			  enemies, and large ground-based foes, Amodar uses
			  his blindingly-fast, multi-hit chaingun, making him
			  one of the best COMs to use for aerial combat.
			  Unfortunately, Amodar lacks useful abilities like
			  Armor Breaker and Bravery Feeder, so he does not
                          excel at any particular role.

Alternatives:

Resist Elements +30% (9): Although Amodar lacks an elemental weakness, this
                          defensive passive ability may keep him safe from 
                          powerful elemental attacks, such as Typhon's
                          Fireball. If you find yourself frequently thwarted by
                          elemental attacks, try this.

Resilience +40% (8)-----: This bestows a 40% chance to resist all status
                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous
                          status ailments, Pain and Fog, are better mitigated
                          by Resist Pain +66% and Resist Fog +66%. The
                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense
                          against Daze working in conjunction with Resilience
                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The
                          remaining status ailments are not as dangerous in
                          post-game and can be quickly removed by items or SYN
                          buffs if necessary. As such, Resilience +40%'s value
                          for post-game content is diminished.

Auto-Bravery (7) -------: Amodar's Blitz is not the fastest, but his ability
                          to launch un-staggered opponents is unique and
			  practical. Use this passive ability if you only plan
                          to use Amodar for this specific purpose. However, it
                          is generally inefficient against bosses, since you
                          should not generally lead with a COM. If you only use
                          Amodar for general use, consider using Auto-Bravery
                          over Feral Speed II.

Pack Mentality (4)------: This passive ability provides an additive 30% damage
                          boost when every monster in your Paradigm Pack shares
                          the same Crystarium Constellation. When all is said
                          and done, though, Pack Mentality only provides a
                          10-15% increase in damage because of how it is
                          combined with other damage modifiers. If you want to
                          maximize Amodar's damage and do not mind limiting
                          your monster choices, consider using Pack Mentality
                          in place of Feral Speed II.

09) Chain Bonus Boost II (6)
10) Attack: ATB Charge II (6)

Monster Materials to Use: All-Mana.

Crystarium Expansions---: None.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Typhon Adrenaline and Faultsiphon. Then, teach
                          him Jeopardize by infusing 99 levels worth of RAV
                          monsters into him.

Purpose of this Monster-: As a Magic-based COM, Typhon is comparable to 
			  Metallicactuar, as it has slightly higher Magic and
			  Mind Piercer. Unfortunately, he is much slower than
			  other Magic-based COMs. That said, he starts with a
		          free En- buff against opponents weak to Fire or Wind.
			  More importantly, though, if he is enhanced with an
			  En- buff that his opponent is weak against, he will 
		          inflict an extra 15% more damage due to Weak Spot.
			  Typhon excels at finishing random encounters, not
                          defeating bosses. Weak Spot, Auto Enfire, and Auto
                          Enaero are much more likely to activate against
                          random encounters, and his Ruinga is one of the
                          strongest in the game. In fact, two Faith-boosted
                          Ruingas can eliminate a group of PuPu. Typhon
                          innately halves physical and magic damage, making
                          him sturdy enough to tank multiple attacks.

Alternatives:

Resist Elements +30% (9): Although Typhon lacks an elemental weakness, this
                          defensive passive ability may keep him safe from 
                          powerful elemental attacks, such as Valfodr's
                          Thundaga. If you find yourself frequently thwarted by
                          elemental attacks, try this.

Resilience +40% (8)-----: This bestows a 40% chance to resist all status
                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous
                          status ailments, Pain and Fog, are better mitigated
                          by Resist Pain +66% and Resist Fog +66%. The
                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense
                          against Daze working in conjunction with Resilience
                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The
                          remaining status ailments are not as dangerous in
                          post-game and can be quickly removed by items or SYN
                          buffs if necessary. As such, Resilience +40%'s value
                          for post-game content is diminished.

Resist Physical +36% (7): While Resist Physical +36% and Resist Magic +36% are
                          statistically superior to HP +30% and Resist Physical
                          +36% for preserving a higher HP percentage and
                          Adrenaline, post-game bosses and Coliseum opponents
                          telegraph their most powerful Magic-based attacks,
                          giving you plenty of time to prepare an adequate
                          defense. As such, HP +30% and Resist Physical +36%
                          should prove to be more useful in general, especially
                          against Gilgamesh. However, because Typhon has three
                          Red Locks and naturally halves physical and magic
                          damage, he only needs HP +30%, since Resist Physical
                          +36% and Resist Magic +36%'s benefits are reduced. On
                          the other hand, it is very practical to remove one of
                          Typhon's more situational passive abilities, like
                          Feral Speed II, to make room for Resist Physical
                          +36%. To completely maximize his defenses, remove
                          both Feral Speed II and Chain Bonus Boost II so
                          Typhon has room for HP +30%, Resist Physical +36%,
                          and Resist Magic +36%.

Resist Magic +36% (7)---: See above.

Auto-Faith (7)----------: For random battles when you start with Typhon.
                          However, it is generally inefficient against bosses,
                          since you should not generally lead with a COM. If
                          you only use Typhon for general use, consider using
                          Auto-Faith over Feral Speed II.

Pack Mentality (4)------: This passive ability provides an additive 30% damage
                          boost when every monster in your Paradigm Pack shares
                          the same Crystarium Constellation. When all is said
                          and done, though, Pack Mentality only provides a
                          10-15% increase in damage because of how it is
                          combined with other damage modifiers. If you want to
                          maximize Typhon's damage and do not mind limiting
                          your monster choices, consider using Pack Mentality

Special Notes-----------: Because Stagger: Wound supercedes Armor Breaker and
                          Mind Piercer against staggered opponents, you could
                          only raise Gilgamesh to Lv. 09 to avoid learning
                          Stagger: Wound, at the cost of 1,019 HP, 68 Strength,
                          and 32 Magic.

Purpose of this Monster-: Gilgamesh has many unique properties. He innately
                          halves all elemental, physical, and magic damage,
			  making him very defensive. He has Armor Breaker and
			  Mind Piercer, which makes him more effective against
			  opponents that resist or halve physical and magic 
			  attacks. During his normal attack chain, his first,
                          third, and fifth hits all use Excalipoor, which only 
			  inflicts 1 damage. His last Attack uses Muramasa,
			  attacking for reduced damage but healing Gilgamesh
			  by 10% of the damage dealt. If Armor Breaker or 
                          Stagger: Wound are active, however, all of these
                          special properties disappear and deal normal damage
                          for all six Attacks. His aerial physical attack speed
                          is exceptional and suffers from none of the
                          aforementioned quirks, as he stops using his swords
                          and attacks with Death Claw, which deals 10% Wound
                          damage of the damage dealt without Stagger: Wound
                          active. While his Blitz is nothing special, his
                          Ravage becomes Cross Slash, an attack with a slow
			  start-up and an impressive range. As for his Magic
                          attacks, he has a lightning-fast casting speed, with
			  Mind Piercer to boot. Finally, his Feral Link,
		          Divider, inflicts massive damage and has a long
			  animation, freezing an opponent's Chain Gauge so that
			  Serah and Noel can continue to inflict additional
			  damage. Unfortunately, while Gilgamesh has many
			  unique properties, he does not excel at anything more
			  than other COMs due to his lack of raw stats and an
			  inability to force him to consistently use Ruin.
			  However, his Blitz and Ruinga spells are useful for
			  random encounters.

Alternatives:

Resilience +40% (8)-----: This bestows a 40% chance to resist all status
                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous
                          status ailments, Pain and Fog, are better mitigated
                          by Resist Pain +66% and Resist Fog +66%. The
                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense
                          against Daze working in conjunction with Resilience
                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The
                          remaining status ailments are not as dangerous in
                          post-game and can be quickly removed by items or SYN
                          buffs if necessary. As such, Resilience +40%'s value
                          for post-game content is diminished.

Resist Physical +36% (7): While Resist Physical +36% and Resist Magic +36% are
                          statistically superior to HP +30% and Resist Physical
                          +36% for preserving a higher HP percentage and
                          Adrenaline, post-game bosses and Coliseum opponents
                          telegraph their most powerful Magic-based attacks,
                          giving you plenty of time to prepare an adequate
                          defense. As such, HP +30% and Resist Physical +36%
                          should prove to be more useful in general, especially
                          against Gilgamesh. However, because Gilgamesh has two
                          Red Locks and naturally halves physical and magic
                          damage, he only needs HP +30%, since Resist Physical
                          +36% and Resist Magic +36%'s benefits are reduced. On
                          the other hand, it is very practical to remove one of
                          Gilgamesh's more situational passive abilities, like
                          Feral Speed II, to make room for Resist Physical
                          +36%. To completely maximize his defenses, remove
                          both Feral Speed II and Chain Bonus Boost II so
                          Gilgamesh has room for HP +30%, Resist Physical +36%,
                          and Resist Magic +36%.

Resist Magic +36% (7)---: See above.

Auto-Bravery (7) -------: For random battles where you start with Gilgamesh.
                          However, it is generally inefficient against bosses,
                          since you should not generally lead with a COM. If
                          you only use Gilgamesh for general use, consider
                          using Auto-Bravery over Feral Speed II.

Auto-Faith (7)----------: For random battles when you start with Gilgamesh.
                          However, it is generally inefficient against bosses,
                          since you should not generally lead with a COM. If
                          you only use Gilgamesh for general use, consider
                          using Auto-Faith over Feral Speed II.

Pack Mentality (4)------: This passive ability provides an additive 30% damage
                          boost when every monster in your Paradigm Pack shares
                          the same Crystarium Constellation. When all is said
                          and done, though, Pack Mentality only provides a
                          10-15% increase in damage because of how it is
                          combined with other damage modifiers. If you want to
                          maximize Gilgamesh's damage and do not mind limiting
                          your monster choices, consider using Pack Mentality
                          in place of Feral Speed II.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Lightning Powerchain. Then teach her Jeopardize
                          by infusing 99 levels worth of RAV monsters into her.

Purpose of this Monster-: Thanks to her red-locked passive abilities, Lightning
                          is indisputably the best COM in the game, a title
                          befitting Etro's chosen servant. Lightning's Armor
                          Breaker and Mind Piercer abilities let her hit
                          opponents hard in any circumstance, and her high
                          Strength and assortment of passive abilities allow
                          her to capitalize on Uncapped Damage, which ensures
                          that she can exceed the 99,999 limit. The physical
                          attacks Scourge and Smite, used against an opponent
                          with a high Chain Gauge, utilize Uncapped Damage to
                          full effect. Although her ground-based physical
                          attack speed is nothing special, Lightning's aerial
                          physical attack speed is second to none. However,
                          when facing agile, aerial opponents, Lightning may
                          alternate between ground and aerial attacks,
                          hampering her overall DPS. Thanks to her Feral Link,
                          Legion of One, which has a long animation sequence,
                          Lightning can inflict major damage, halt her 
                          staggered opponent's Chain Gauge, and, depending on
                          timing, allows Serah and Noel to sneak in additional
                          attacks. On the other hand, if Serah's Ultimate Arrow
                          or Noel's Meteor Javelin is used right before an
                          opponent's post-Stagger Chain Gauge runs out,
                          Lightning may be able to sneak in a second Uncapped
                          Damage Scourge. Unfortunately, Lightning does not
                          learn any Feeder or Chaser abilities, giving other
                          COMs a slight edge, although they cannot break the
                          damage limit. Still, given her availability and
                          advantageous abilities, Lightning can, based on the
                          situation and strategies you utilize, decimate any
                          opponent in the game.

Alternatives:

Magic +35% (7)----------: Given her naturally high Magic, Lightning can become
                          the most powerful Magic-based COM in the game, with a
                          fast, consistent casting speed. Nevertheless, 
                          Lightning cannot use Scourge or Smite when using
                          Magic, severely limiting her ability to use Uncapped
                          Damage to its full potential.

Resist Physical +36% (7): While Resist Physical +36% and Resist Magic +36% are
                          statistically superior to HP +30% and Resist Physical
                          +36% for preserving a higher HP percentage and
                          Adrenaline, post-game bosses and Coliseum opponents
                          telegraph their most powerful Magic-based attacks,
                          giving you plenty of time to prepare an adequate
                          defense. As such, HP +30% and Resist Physical +36%
                          should prove to be more useful in general, especially
                          against Gilgamesh. However, because Lightning has
                          three Red Locks, she only has room for HP +30%. On
                          the other hand, it is very practical to remove one of
                          Lightning's more situational passive abilities, like
                          Feral Speed II, to make room for Resist Physical
                          +36%. To completely maximize her defenses, remove
                          both Feral Speed II and Chain Bonus Boost II so
                          Lightning has room for HP +30%, Resist Physical +36%,
                          and Resist Magic +36%. Keep in mind that adding both
                          reduces Lightning's offensive passive ability
                          options, limiting her ability to use Uncapped Damage
                          to its full potential.

Resist Magic +36% (7)---: See above.

Ally KO: Power Surge II-: This passive ability increases Lightning's Strength
                          by 130% when an ally is KO'd, bringing out the
                          potential of her Uncapped Damage. However, this
                          ability stops working the moment Serah or Noel is
                          revived. Still, with well-timed execution, you can
                          defeat some of the strongest opponents in the game
                          as fast as possible by using this. Consider replacing
                          Feral Speed II or Chain Bonus Boost II if you want to
                          add Ally KO: Power Surge II.

Pack Mentality (4)------: This passive ability provides an additive 30% damage
                          boost when every monster in your Paradigm Pack shares
                          the same Crystarium constellation. When all is said
                          and done, though, Pack Mentality only provides a
                          10-15% increase in damage because of how it is
                          combined with other damage modifiers. If you want to
                          maximize Lightning's damage and do not mind limiting
                          your monster choices, consider using Pack Mentality
                          in place of Feral Speed II or Chain Bonus Boost II.

[DLBLD06]

Monster------: Lightning 
Monster Role-: Ravager
Constellation: Fantasy, Champion

The Build: 

01) Attack: ATB Charge II (RL)
02) HP +30% (YL)
03) Resist Physical +36% (YL)
04) Resist Magic +36% (YL)

Monster Materials to Use: All-Potent. All-Power or All-Mana are viable as well,
                          as they can help specialize her in either Strength or
                          Magic. However, doing so comes at the cost of 770 HP
                          and either 99 Strength or Magic.

Crystarium Expansions---: None.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Lightning the full gamut of RAV spells - this
                          includes Fira, Blizzara, Thundara, Aerora, Firaga,
                          Blizzaga, and Aeroga. Then teach her Vigor by
                          infusing 99 levels worth of COM monsters into her.

Purpose of this Monster-: Compared to Blue Chocobo and Cloudburst, Lightning
                          suffers in Strength and Magic, but makes up for it in
                          versatility. She has a fast attack speed, a fast 
			  casting speed, access to the full range of elemental
			  -strikes and Blitzes, and the ability to inherit the
			  full range of RAV spells. She can perform any RAV
                          attack against any opponent under any circumstance,
                          making her the most reliable and diverse RAV in the
                          game. Against unreachable opponents, her blade
                          reverts to gun form and fires off -strike abilities 
			  at an unbelievable speed. By yellow-locking all but
                          Strength +35% or Magic +35%, Lightning can alternate
                          between the two, maintaining her versatility, while,
                          at the same time, boosting her defenses. Also, keep
                          in mind that Role Resonance only works in a
                          Tri-Disaster Paradigm, although the 20% boosts to
                          Strength and Magic are significant under those
                          circumstances.

Alternatives:

Stagger Maintenance II--: If Lightning is the one to stagger an opponent,
                          Stagger Maintenance II ensures that it stays
                          staggered for 30% longer. This passive ability is
                          also synergetic with Quick Stagger. However, it is
                          often possible to reach the maximum Stagger duration
                          of 45 seconds without this passive ability at all,
                          and, as a result, Stagger Maintenance II serves more
                          as "duration insurance" instead. This can be
                          especially handy for unrelenting opponents like
                          Gilgamesh and Valfodr.

Pack Mentality (4)------: This passive ability provides an additive 30% damage
                          boost when every monster in your Paradigm Pack shares
                          the same Crystarium constellation. When all is said
                          and done, though, Pack Mentality only provides a
                          10-15% increase in damage because of how it is
                          combined with other damage modifiers. If you want to
                          maximize Lightning's damage and do not mind limiting
                          your monster choices, consider using Pack Mentality
                          in place of Feral Speed II.

Monster------: Valfodr
Monster Role-: Ravager
Constellation: Fantasy, Champion

The Build:

01) Weak Spot (RL)
02) HP +30% (8)
03) Magic +35% (7)
04) Resist Physical +36% (7)
05) Role Resonance (7)
06) Quick Stagger(7)
07) Feral Speed II (6)
08) Siphon Boost II (6)
09) Chain Bonus Boost II (6)
10) Attack: ATB Charge II (6)

Monster Materials to Use: Mana for levels 2-80, 82, 84, 86, 88, and 91-99.
                          Potent for levels 81, 83, 85, 87, 89, and 90.

Crystarium Expansions---: +3 ATB, +1 Bonus Boost.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Valfodr the full gamut of RAV spells - this
                          includes Blizzara, Aerora, Blizzaga, and Aeroga. Then
                          teach him Vigor by infusing 99 levels worth of COM
                          monsters into him.

Purpose of this Monster-: As expected of the Arbiter of Time, Valfodr is the
                          most powerful RAV, with 6 ATB, 1 RAV Bonus Boost,
                          respectable HP with a Mana-focused build, and the 
                          highest Magic in the entire game. Against opponents
                          susceptible to Imperil and elemental attacks,
                          Valfodr's Weak Spot and Fel- abilities give him the
                          ability to inflict damage comparable to COMs. His
                          casting speed surpasses Blue Chocobo's and is more
                          consistent than Cloudburst's. However, like many
                          monsters, Valfodr must oftentimes reposition himself,
                          and its damage will suffer against Magic-resistant
                          opponents. Also, keep in mind that Role Resonance
                          only works in a Tri-Disaster Paradigm, although the
                          20% boosts to his Strength and Magic are significant
                          under those circumstances.

Alternatives:

Strength +35% (7)-------: Similar to Lightning's behavior against unreachable
                          opponents, Valfodr will execute a blindingly-fast
                          stream of gunfire when using -strike abilities. 
                          However, Valfodr only learns Fire and Thunder-based 
                          physical attacks, which are not compatible with his
                          Fel- abilities and cannot be used consistently,
                          severely limiting his damage potential.

Resist Magic +36% (7)---: While Resist Physical +36% and Resist Magic +36% are
                          statistically superior to HP +30% and Resist Physical
                          +36% for preserving a higher HP percentage and
                          Adrenaline, post-game bosses and Coliseum opponents
                          telegraph their most powerful Magic-based attacks,
                          giving you plenty of time to prepare an adequate
                          defense. As such, HP +30% and Resist Physical +36%
                          should prove to be more useful in general, especially
                          against Gilgamesh. However, because Valfodr has one
                          Red Lock and naturally halves physical and magic
                          damage, he only needs HP +30%, since Resist Physical
                          +36% and Resist Magic +36%'s benefits are reduced. On
                          the other hand, it is very practical to remove one of
                          Valfodr's more situational passive abilities, like
                          Feral Speed II, to make room for Resist Magic +36%
                          and completely maximize his defenses.

Stagger Maintenance II--: If Valfodr is the one to stagger an opponent, Stagger
                          Maintenance II ensures that it stays staggered for 
                          30% longer. This passive ability is also synergetic
                          with Quick Stagger. However, it is often possible to
                          reach the maximum Stagger duration of 45 seconds
                          without this passive ability at all, and, as a
                          result, Stagger Maintenance II serves more as
                          "duration insurance" instead. This can be especially
                          handy for unrelenting opponents like Gilgamesh and
                          Valfodr.

Pack Mentality (4)------: This passive ability provides an additive 30% damage
                          boost when every monster in your Paradigm Pack shares
                          the same Crystarium constellation. When all is said
                          and done, though, Pack Mentality only provides a
                          10-15% increase in damage because of how it is
                          combined with damage modifiers. If you want to 
                          maximize Valfodr's damage at the small cost of some
                          defenses and do not mind limiting your monster
                          choices, consider using Pack Mentality.

Monster------: Snow
Monster Role-: Sentinel
Constellation: Fantasy, Champion

The Build:

01) Enhanced Sentinel (RL)
02) Improved Ward II (RL)
03) HP +30% (8)
04) Strength +35% (7)
05) Resist Physical +36% (7)
06) Resist Magic +36% (7)
07) Role Resonance (7)
08) Feral Speed II (6)
09) Improved Guard II (6)
10) Improved Counter II (6)

Monster Materials to Use: All-Power. All-Vitality is also viable, especially
                          if you prefer not to use offensive SENs.

Crystarium Expansions---: None.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Snow Steelguard. Then teach him Reprieve by
                          infusing 99 levels worth of MEDs into him.

Special Notes-----------: Only raise him to Lv. 12 to avoid learning Critical:
                          Tetradefense, at the cost of 298 HP, 11 Strength, and
                          11 Magic. Should you choose to favor stat growth
                          instead, Critical: Tetradefense can still prove to be
                          useful under certain circumstances.

Purpose of this Monster-: While an All-Vitality build provides Snow with the
                          highest HP in the entire game, it is largely
                          unnecessary. By foregoing excess health in exchange
                          for a boost to his naturally high Strength growth,
                          Snow can become the greatest offensive SEN available.
                          In random battles, Snow will use counterattacks
                          enhanced by Improved Counter II. In boss and Coliseum
                          battles, Snow's Guard and Ward abilities, further
                          augmented by Improved Guard II and Improved Ward II,
                          ensure that he is capable of protecting Serah, Noel,
                          and himself. Through proper utilization of the
                          Tortoise Paradigm, Snow can tank a powerful attack
                          and follow up with his Role Resonance-boosted Feral
                          Link, Sovereign Fist, a strong, physical attack that
                          hits Snow's target twice and any surrounding
                          opponents unlucky enough to be in range, making it
                          useful for disrupting coordinated group assaults.
                          Although he lacks the natural resistances that make
                          Pulse Gladiator the best defensive SEN, his HP pool
                          more than compensates for it.

Alternatives:

Resist Elements +30% (9): Although Snow lacks an elemental weakness, this
                          extra defensive ability may keep him safe from
                          powerful elemental attacks, such as Typhon's
                          Fireball. If you find yourself frequently thwarted by
                          elemental attacks, try this.

Critical: Tetradefense(8: Because Snow naturally learns this passive ability,
                          some might consider it a normal choice to leave it
                          on. However, Snow's high HP makes it unlikely that
                          he will ever reach critical condition. With the right
                          strategy, though, Critical: Tetradefense can be used
                          to grant long-lasting defensive buffs to the whole
                          Paradigm Pack.

Resilience +40% (8)-----: This bestows a 40% chance to resist all status
                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous
                          status ailments, Pain and Fog, are better mitigated
                          by Resist Pain +66% and Resist Fog +66%. The
                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense
                          against Daze working in conjunction with Resilience
                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The
                          remaining status ailments are not as dangerous in
                          post-game and can be quickly removed by items or SYN
                          buffs if necessary. As such, Resilience +40%'s value
                          for post-game content is diminished.

Pack Mentality (4)------: This passive ability provides an additive 30% damage
                          boost when every monster in your Paradigm Pack shares
                          the same Crystarium constellation. When all is said
                          and done, though, Pack Mentality only provides a
                          10-15% increase in damage because of how it is
                          combined with other damage modifiers. If you want to
                          maximize Snow's damage at the small cost of some
                          defenses and do not mind limiting your monster
                          choices, consider using Pack Mentality over Feral
                          Speed II, Improved Guard II, or Improved Counter II.

Monster------: Nabaat
Monster Role-: Saboteur
Constellation: Fantasy, Champion
 
The Build: 

01) Improved Debilitation II (RL)
02) Improved Debuffing (RL)
03) Pressure II (RL)
04) HP +30% (8)
05) Strength +35% (7)

07) Feral Speed II (6)
08) Siphon Boost II (6)
09) Chain Bonus Boost II (6)
10) Attack: ATB Charge II (6)

Monster Materials to Use: All-Mana to capitalize on the Wound damage from her
                          stun-locking process, as well as to strengthen her
                          Magic-based Feral Link, Sadistic Surge. All-Potent
                          is viable as well.

Crystarium Expansions---: None.

Additional Abilities----: Due to her unique role as a stun locker, Nabaat 
			  grows weaker and less effective the more spells you 
			  try to teach her. Just teach her Jinx by infusing
			  99 levels worth of SYN monsters into her.

Special Notes-----------: Nabaat's Feral Link, Sadistic Surge, deserves
			  particular attention. While it is powerful in and 
			  of itself and good at keeping her opponent 
			  stun-locked, it bestows additional bonuses to Nabaat
                          depending on the Role composition of your Paradigm
                          Pack. Based on the Roles of your other monsters,
                          Sadistic Surge grants the following effects:

			  1 SYN--: Bravery
                          2 SYNs-: Bravery and Faith
                          1 SEN--: Protect
                          2 SENs-: Protect and Shell
                          COMs---: Damage Boost
                          RAVs---: Chain Boost
                          MEDs---: Heals Nabaat, Small Damage Boost
                          SABs---: Increased Wound Damage		

Purpose of this Monster-: At first glance, Nabaat looks like an average SAB.
                          She has the single- and multi-target Strength-based
                          versions of Curse, Pain, and Fog and the single- and
                          multi-target Magic-based versions of Wound, Poison, 
			  and Imperil. She innately halves Magic damage, and 
			  her slow casting speed seems to reduce her overall
			  effectiveness. Looking closer, though, she has a 
		          unique purpose that no other SAB can replicate - by 
		          sticking Curse on her opponent and then steadily 
			  attacking it, Nabaat can catch a single target in
                          a stun-lock using her Pressure II passive ability.
                          Her opponent will flinch in response to each of her
                          attacks. Her slow casting speed provides a steady 
			  attack stream that hits the target directly after it
			  recovers from her last attack, keeping it
			  stun-locked in perfect time. This strategy can be 
			  used on stubborn targets susceptible to Curse. Her 
			  downside is that Nabaat will attempt to inflict most
			  (if not all) of the debuffs she knows on a given
			  target before moving on to Wound, which has the best
			  Cut (hitstun value) of them all. Note that while the
                          physical SAB abilities have high Cut values as well,
                          she will stop using them after their debuffs have
                          stuck, making it a bad idea to rely on them for
                          every situation. Unfortunately, Nabaat's
                          stun-locking ability does not contribute to any
                          efficient strategies and is only distictive against
                          opponents pre-Stagger. It is also ineffective
                          against many bosses and Coliseum opponents that
                          would be severely crippled if they could be affected.

Alternatives:

Auto-Haste (9)----------: If you are certain that you will begin battles with
			  Nabaat, this passive ability can be useful, as Haste
			  cannot be cast by SYNs. Because of Haste's beneficial
			  nature, which can be transfered to the rest of the
			  Paradigm Pack, consider using this passive ability.

Resist Physical +36% (7): While Resist Physical +36% and Resist Magic +36% are
                          statistically superior to HP +30% and Resist Physical
                          +36% for preserving a higher HP percentage and
                          Adrenaline, post-game bosses and Coliseum opponents
                          telegraph their most powerful Magic-based attacks,
                          giving you plenty of time to prepare an adequate
                          defense. As such, HP +30% and Resist Physical +36%
                          should prove to be more useful in general, especially
                          against Gilgamesh. However, because Nabaat has three
                          Red Locks and naturally halves magic damage, she only
                          has room for HP +30%, which provides more defense
                          than Resist Physical +36% alone.

Role Resonance (7)------: If you use the Infiltration Paradigm, consider this
			  passive ability, as it provides a 20% boost to
			  Nabaat's Strength and Magic.

Auto-Faith (7)----------: If you are certain that you will begin battles with 
			  Nabaat, this passive ability can be useful, as it 
                          increases Nabaat's Magic damage. Because of Faith's
                          Magic boost, which can be transfered to the rest of
			  the Paradigm Pack, try using this passive ability.

Pack Mentality (4)------: This passive ability provides an additive 30% damage
                          boost when every monster in your Paradigm Pack shares
                          the same Crystarium constellation. When all is said
                          and done, though, Pack Mentality only provides a
                          10-15% increase in damage because of how it is
                          combined with other damage modifiers. If you want to
                          maximize Nabaat's damage and do not mind limiting
                          your monster choices, consider using Pack Mentality
                          over Feral Speed II.

                          iii-2/62104623

Crystarium Expansions---: +2 ATB.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Sazh Faithga, Protectga, Shellga, Vigilaga, and
                          Veilga. Then teach him Boon by infusing 99 levels
                          worth of SAB monsters into him.

Special Notes-----------: Only raise him to Lv. 41 to avoid learning Critical:
                          Haste. Sazh's red-locked Feral Speed can be upgraded
                          to Feral Speed II through infusion. In addition, a 
                          Lv. 16 Sazh only possesses augmentation spells, at
                          the cost of 3281 HP and 459 Magic.

Purpose of this Monster-: Because of his natural spell selection, Sazh cannot
                          serve as an augment-focused SYN without severely
                          crippling his HP and Magic. However, by infusing
                          him with all SYN spell variations, Sazh can become
                          a competent all-around SYN, due to his fast casting
                          speed and 6 ATB. He can strengthen the entire party
                          by himself or split his duty with Serah and Noel for
                          slightly faster buffing. While it is impossible to 
                          force Sazh into prioritizing particular buffs, you
                          can switch him out for another monster so that the
                          rest of the Paradigm Pack benefits from his Auto:
                          Buffs. Sazh's Feral Link, Cold Blood, works exactly
                          like RAV Lightning's Army of One by driving up an
                          opponent's post-Stagger Chain Gauge. Note that Cold
                          Blood is based off of Sazh's Strength, so the
                          damage it inflicts is negligible.

Alternatives:

HP +30% (8)-------------: This passive ability, when combined with Resist
                          Physical +36% and Resist Magic +36%, ensures that
                          Sazh will have the best longevity possible. Because
                          of all of his red-locked passive abilities, though,
                          Sazh does not have room for it. If you wish to build
                          the most durable Sazh possible, consider replacing
                          Auto-Bravery for this.

First Strike (6)--------: A passive ability that makes sure Sazh has full ATB
                          to begin buffing as soon as a battle begins. However,
                          because he has three red-locked passive abilities,
                          Sazh does not have room for this.

Defense Maintenance (5)-: This passive ability extends the duration of Protect,
                          Protectga, Shell, Shellga, Veil, Veilga, and
                          Vigilaga. Since defensive buffs last longer than
                          augments, though, the extended duration may not be
                          necessary for most battles.

09) Auto-Faith (7)
10) Feral Speed II (6)

Monster Materials to Use: All-Mana.

Crystarium Expansions---: None.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Ultros Protectga and Shellga. Then teach him
                          Boon by infusing 99 levels worth of SAB monsters into
                          him. After that, you can carefully mold him by
                          choosing select abilities, such as only Bravega and
                          Faithga. His limited moveset can be used to your
                          advantage, since, besides Protect and Shell, you can
                          specialize him in any way that you want.

Special Notes-----------: Only raise him to Lv. 11 to avoid learning Random: 
                          Nullify Ice, at the cost of 159 HP and 13 Magic.

Purpose of this Monster-: Ultros tends to get written off due to his poor spell
                          selection. Players just want to see Bravery and
                          Faith, and the presence of any defense-oriented buffs
                          leads to automatic dismissal. He is also a relatively
                          slow caster and sometimes suffers from repositioning
                          issues, lowering his speed further. He has some good
                          qualities, however. First, his Feral Link, Octopus 
			  Ink, causes Magic-based damage and attempts to apply
                          Curse, Pain, and Slow - an uncastable status ailment
                          - on a group of foes. Tied into this is the fact that
                          he has has Feral Surge but not Feral Fatigue. This
                          means that the moment his Feral Link Gauge becomes
                          full, he is bestowed with Bravery, Faith, Vigilance,
                          Veil, Protect, Shell, and Haste. His natural moveset
                          can be seen in a couple of positive ways as well. The
                          first way is to load him with all of the
                          defense-oriented buffs to have a defensive caster, as
                          he is the only monster to have Defense Maintenance
                          II, which increases defensive buff duration. A more
                          likely, and more effective, way to approach Ultros
                          would be to think of him as a blank slate. He only
                          knows two spells, both single-target. You can teach
                          him Protectga and Shellga so that he casts them as
                          soon as possible. After that, you can choose exactly
                          what you want him to cast by teaching him an
                          intentionally limited selection of desired spells.
                          You can guarantee Bravega and Faithga if those are
                          the only other spells you teach him. Alternatively,
                          you can guarantee that he casts the longer-lasting 
                          single-target versions if you teach him only those
                          and not the multi-target versions. Ultros is as close
                          as you can get to a blank slate SYN that still has
                          decent stats.

Alternatives:

HP +30% (8)-------------: Resist Physical +36% and Resist Magic +36% are
                          statistically superior to HP +30% for maintaining
                          Adrenaline and Vigor on COMs and RAVs. For maximum
                          defense, consider replacing Auto-Bravery of First
                          Strike for this.

Auto-Vigilance (8)------: If you plan to use Ultros solely for passing on
                          Auto-Buffs to the rest of the Paradigm Pack, you
                          could replace Auto-Tetradefense with Auto-Vigilance,
                          Auto-Protect, and Auto-Shell in order to extend their
                          durations for 30 seconds more. If you decide to do
                          this, consider replacing Resist Physical +36% and
                          Resist Magic +36% with Auto-Protect and Auto-Shell.
                          Remember, while it is much easier to use these
                          replacements instead of capturing Tezcatlipoca for
                          Auto-Tetradefense, they are not necessarily the most
                          optimal options.

Auto-Protect (7)--------: See above.

Auto-Shell (7)----------: See above.

Defense Maintenance (5)-: This passive ability extends the duration of Protect,
                          Protectga, Shell, Shellga, Veil, Veilga, and
                          Vigilaga. Since defensive buffs last longer than
                          augments, though, the extended duration may not be 
                          necessary for most battles.

Monster Materials to Use: All-Mana.

Crystarium Expansions---: None.

Additional Abilities----: Teach PuPu Curaja by infusing 99 levels worth of SEN
                          monsters into it.

Purpose of this Monster-: PuPu's defining feature is its unique Feral Link,
                          Items Please!, which inflicts Magic damage, increases
			  the odds of obtaining items after battle, and has a
                          maximum Synch Rate of 999%. Get the opponent's health
                          low enough, switch to the Salvation Paradigm, and use
                          Items Please! for maximum effectiveness. If you fail
                          to defeat your target, wait while PuPu uses Cheer to
                          fill its Feral Link Gauge. By making a Paradigm Pack
                          consisting of Fantasy or Champion monsters, PuPu can
                          utilize its Pack Mentality and gain an additional 30%
                          boost to its Magic. As a MED, PuPu functions just as
                          well as any of the Top-Tier MEDs. It can be built
                          like Green Chocobo or White Chocobo, depending on
                          your needs and personal play style.

Alternatives:

Resist Elements +30% (9): Although PuPu lacks an elemental weakness, this 
                          defensive passive ability may keep it safe from 
			  powerful elemental attacks, such as Typhon's
                          Fireball. If you find yourself frequently thwarted by
			  elemental attacks, try this.

Resilience +40% (8)-----: This bestows a 40% chance to resist all status
                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous
                          status ailments, Pain and Fog, are better mitigated
                          by Resist Pain +66% and Resist Fog +66%. The
                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense
                          against Daze working in conjunction with Resilience
                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The
                          remaining status ailments are not as dangerous in
                          post-game and can be quickly removed by items or SYN
                          buffs if necessary. As such, Resilience +40%'s value
                          for post-game content is diminished.

Resist Physical +36% (7): While Resist Physical +36% and Resist Magic +36% are
                          statistically superior to HP +30% and Resist Physical
                          +36% for preserving a higher HP percentage and
                          Adrenaline, post-game bosses and Coliseum opponents
                          telegraph their most powerful Magic-based attacks,
                          giving you plenty of time to prepare an adequate
                          defense. As such, HP +30% and Resist Physical +36%
                          should prove to be more useful in general, especially
                          against Gilgamesh. However, because PuPu has two Red
                          Locks, it only has room for HP +30%. Keep in mind
                          that adding either Resist Physical +36% or Resist
                          Magic +36% reduces PuPu's chances to reach critical
                          condition.

Resist Magic +36% (7)---: See above.

Ally KO: Power Surge II-: This passive ability increases PuPu's healing 
                          capabilities while an ally is KO'd. However, it stops
                          working the moment that the fallen ally is revived.

Improved Raise II (6)---: This passive ability doubles the effect of Raise.
			  However, PuPu will cure the dying before it revives
                          the KO'd, although this is not relevant if you have
                          one KO'd character and the other two are in good
                          health. In that time, you can use a Phoenix Down or
                          Phoenix Blood, which  revives an ally, removes Wound
                          damage, and adds beneficial buffs like Protect &
                          Shell or Haste. If you dislike items for any reason,
                          Improved Raise II should prove useful. In addition,
                          there is a chance that PuPu will respond to a fallen
                          ally with a quick Raise (assuming there is no other
                          damage to heal), and, in that instance, you would
                          benefit from this.

Critical: Power Surge II: This passive ability boosts PuPu's Cure potency for
                          as long as it remains in critical condition.
                          Assuming that it is healing itself, though, it will
                          only take PuPu one or two spells to recover, reducing
                          its effectiveness.

Critical: Shield II (6)-: This passive ability reduces incoming damage by 30%
                          for as long as PuPu remains in critical condition,
                          potentially saving it from dying. However, unlike
                          other Critical: Buff passive abilities, the defensive
                          bonus disappears the moment PuPu recovers from
                          critical condition, limiting its overall usefulness.

While the monsters in the following section are not considered to be the best
in their respective Roles, they all possess a combination of high stats,
natural resistances, useful Feral Links, and little quirks that helps them
perform well in the post-game and sets them apart from their competition.

This section will still follow the pattern set by Section 12 - Top-Tier Builds
[TTBuild] and Section 13 - DLC Builds [DLCBild] by prioritizing boss-killing
builds. Random encounter-killing alternativies will also be explored. In
addition, the advantages and disadvantages of each monster are examined in more
detail than in the prior two sections.

Note that some monsters have passive abilities that deviate from what is
normally suggested in order to highlight a specific function.

...............................................................................

[NMBLD01]

Monster------: Apkallu
Monster Role-: Commando
Constellation: Sahagin

The Build:

01) Resist Elements +30% (9)
02) HP +30% (8)
03) Strength +35% (7)
04) Resist Physical +36% (7)
05) Resist Magic +36% (7)
06) Role Resonance (7)
07) Feral Speed II (6)
08) Siphon Boost II (6)
09) Chain Bonus Boost II (6)
10) Attack: ATB Charge II (6)

Monster Materials to Use: All-Power.

Crystarium Expansions---: +2 ATB.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Apkallu Adrenaline, Blindside, Faultsiphon, and
                          Lifesiphon. Then teach it Jeopardize by infusing 99
                          levels worth of RAV monsters into it.

Advantages--------------: Apkallu is, bar none, the best user of Area Sweep in
                          the entire game, as well as the best COM for raising
                          an opponent's Chain Gauge. It naturally halves Ice
                          and Wind damage and has enough room to fit all
                          relevant defensive passive abilities. Its unique
                          Area Sweep animation, coupled with its large size and
                          the third highest Strength of all COMs, allows it to
                          easily destroy random opponents. It also finds a 
                          niche against PuPu, as two Bravery-enhanced Area
                          Sweeps are capable of wiping out a horde of PuPu.
                          In addition, Apkallu's Attack animation consists of
                          two pecks per Attack, with each peck rivaling the
                          speed of one of Chichu's Attack commands. Due to the
                          nature of its Attack, Apkallu is able to completely
                          restore its ATB through Siphon Boost II and
                          Attack: ATB Charge II, which results in non-stop
                          attacking. Against a properly debuffed target with a
                          high Chain Gauge, the combined total of Apkallu's two
                          hits per Attack lets it to exceed the damage limit.
                          Its Feral Link, Abyssal Breath, can inflict Deprotect
                          and Deshell, potentially saving valuable time against
                          bosses and Coliseum opponents. It also has a Synch
                          Rate of 300%, so Apkallu is suitable for capturing
                          monsters.

Disadvantages-----------: Despite its high Strength, Apkallu cannot use it
                          against launched and flying opponents, forcing it to
                          cast Ruin and Ruinga with its abysmal Magic, albeit
                          at a respectable 75 casting speed. It is also weak to
                          Fire and Lightning attacks, making it a poor choice
                          against the likes of Omega, Amodar, Lightning, Typhon
                          PuPu, and Valfodr. Apkallu lacks any beneficial 
                          Chaser and Feeder abilities that make other COMs so 
                          useful. While it does learn Slow Chaser, Slow is a
                          rare status ailment that can only be inflicted by
                          another monster's Feral Link. Apkallu's own Feral
                          Link is unfortunately Magic-based and inflicts common
                          status ailments that Serah and Noel can also use.

Alternatives:

Resilience +40% (8)-----: This bestows a 40% chance to resist all status
                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous
                          status ailments, Pain and Fog, are better mitigated
                          by Resist Pain +66% and Resist Fog +66%. The
                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense
                          against Daze working in conjunction with Resilience
                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The
                          remaining status ailments are not as dangerous in
                          post-game and can be quickly removed by items or SYN
                          buffs if necessary. As such, Resilience +40%'s value
                          for post-game content is diminished.

Auto-Bravery (7)--------: For random battles when you start with Apkallu. Given
                          Apkallu's Area Sweep, Auto-Bravery will allow you to
                          breeze through random encounters, as well as PuPu's 
                          Coliseum battle. However, it is generally inefficient
                          against bosses, since you should not generally lead
                          with a COM. If you only use Apkallu for general use,
                          consider using Auto-Bravery over Resist Elements +30%
                          or Feral Speed II.

Pack Mentality (4)------: This passive ability provides an additive 30% damage
                          boost when every monster in your Paradigm Pack shares
                          the same Crystarium constellation. When all is said
                          and done, though, Pack Mentality only provides a
                          10-15% increase in damage because of how it is
                          combined with other damage modifiers. If you want to
                          maximize Apkallu's damage and do not mind limiting
                          your monster choices, consider using Pack Mentality
                          in place of Resist Elements +30% or Feral Speed II.

[NMBLD02]

Monster------: Chocobo
Monster Role-: Commando
Constellation: Chocobo

The Build:

01) Critical: Power Surge II (RL)
02) HP +30% (8)
03) Strength +35% (7)
04) Resist Physical +36% (7)
05) Resist Magic +36% (7)
06) Role Resonance (7)
07) Feral Speed II (6)
08) Siphon Boost II (6)
09) Chain Bonus Boost II (6)
10) Attack: ATB Charge II (6)

Monster Materials to Use: Power for levels 2-10, 30, and 41-99. Potent for
                          levels 11-29 and 31-40.

Crystarium Expansions---: +3 ATB, +1 Bonus Boost.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Chocobo Faultsiphon and Scourge. Then teach it
                          Jeopardize by infusing 99 levels worth of RAV
                          monsters into it.

Advantages--------------: A powerful, high-leveled COM, Chocobo is guaranteed
                          to join Serah and Noel on their first visit to the
                          Archylte Steppe. It naturally halves Wind damage and
                          has enough room to fit all relevant defensive passive
                          abilities. With high Strength, 6 ATB, and COM Bonus
                          Boost at its disposal, Chocobo can become a valuable
                          ally, as it also boasts Imperil Chaser, which raises
                          Chocobo's Strength even further against opponents
                          inflicted with Imperil, a useful status ailment that
                          affects both bosses and Coliseum opponents alike.
                          Chocobo's Feral Link, Kweh, utilizes its Strength to
                          unleash a barrage of pecks on its target. It also has
                          a maximum Synch Rate of 350%, so Chocobo is suitable
                          for capturing monsters.

Disadvantages-----------: Aside from Imperil Chaser, Chocobo does not possess
                          any other beneficial abilities that help to
                          differentiate itself from the Top-Tier COMs. It is
                          also weak to Ice attacks, making it a poor choice
                          against Ultros. Like other Strength-based Chocobos,
                          Chocobo suffers from a slow attack speed against
                          moving opponents, as it must oftentimes reorient
                          itself between Attacks.

Alternatives:

Resist Elements +30% (9): Because Chocobo is weak to Ice attacks, this passive
                          ability may keep it safe from powerful Ice attacks,
                          such as Ultros' Frost Breath. If you find yourself
                          frequently thwarted by elemental attacks, try this.

Resilience +40% (8)-----: This bestows a 40% chance to resist all status
                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous
                          status ailments, Pain and Fog, are better mitigated
                          by Resist Pain +66% and Resist Fog +66%. The
                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense
                          against Daze working in conjunction with Resilience
                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The
                          remaining status ailments are not as dangerous in
                          post-game and can be quickly removed by items or SYN
                          buffs if necessary. As such, Resilience +40%'s value
                          for post-game content is diminished.

Auto-Bravery (7)--------: For random battles when you start with Chocobo.
                          However, it is generally inefficient against bosses,
                          since you should not generally lead with a COM. If
                          you only use Chocobo for general use, consider using
                          Auto-Bravery over Feral Speed II.

Pack Mentality (4)------: This passive ability provides an additive 30% damage
                          boost when every monster in your Paradigm Pack shares
                          the same Crystarium constellation. When all is said
                          and done, though, Pack Mentality only provides a
                          10-15% increase in damage because of how it is
                          combined with other damage modifiers. If you want to
                          maximize Chocobo's damage and do not mind limiting
                          your monster choices, consider using Pack Mentality
                          in place of Feral Speed II.

Monster------: Don Tonberry
Monster Role-: Commando
Constellation: Tonberry

The Build: 

01) Perpetual Poison (RL)
02) Critical: Haste (8)
03) Critical: Tetradefense (8)
04) Strength +35% (7)
05) Role Resonance (7)

07) Chain Bonus Boost II (6)
08) Attack: ATB Charge II (6)
09) Critical: Power Surge II (6)
10) Critical: Bravery (5)

Monster Materials to Use: All-Power.

Crystarium Expansion----: +1 ATB.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Don Tonberry Adrenaline, Blindside,
                          Faultsiphon, Lifesiphon, Powerchain, Ruinga, and
                          Scourge. Then teach it Jeopardize by infusing 99
                          levels worth of RAV monsters into it.

Special Notes-----------: Only level it to Lv. 29 to avoid learning Bonus CP.
                          Since its Strength and Magic are nearly equivalent,
                          Don Tonberry can function as a decent Magic-based
                          COM with a respectable 75 casting speed. However,
                          Don Tonberry cannot use Drain Attack or any of its 
                          Chaser abilities when using Ruin or Ruinga, which
                          makes a Magic-based variant more fragile and
                          potentially weaker than a Strength-based one.

Advantages--------------: One of two monsters with the red-locked Perpetual
                          Poison passive ability, Don Tonberry possesses a
                          combination of innate defenses, unique abilities, and
                          powerful offenses that give it the survivability and
                          power to make excellent use of Critical: Buff passive
                          abilities. While its HP may be lower than most COMs
                          without HP +30%, Don Tonberry naturally resists all
                          status ailments and halves physical and magic damage,
                          making defensive passive abilities superfluous and
                          contradictory to the build, as they would reduce the
                          time it takes for Don Tonberry to reach critical
                          condition. As soon as said state is attained, Don
                          Tonberry can be blessed with a myriad of buffs that
                          further boosts its high Strength and bestows Protect,
                          Shell, Vigilance, and Veil for added protection. This
                          allows Don Tonberry to serve in a SYN-like fashion,
                          because it can share its buffs with the rest of the
                          Paradigm Pack. Its Chaser abilities enhance its
                          Strength even further against targets inflicted with
                          Deprotect, Deshell, Imperil, and Poison, common
                          status ailments that Serah and Noel can apply and
                          that even affect bosses and Coliseum opponents. Drain
                          Attack uses Don Tonberry's Strength and helps it
                          sustain itself in battle. Quick to attack, Don
                          Tonberry will chase down its opponent, relentlessly
                          following and stabbing its target until it is
                          defeated. Aside from multitasking as a COM and SYN,
                          its Feral Link, Hateful Gouge, lets Don Tonberry
                          serve as a substitute SAB, since it capitalizes on
                          its Strength and inflicts Deprotect, Imperil, Curse,
                          and Slow. It also has a maximum Synch Rate of 300%,
                          so Don Tonberry is suitable for capturing monsters.

Disadvantages-----------: Unfortunately, Don Tonberry only receives one
                          Crystarium Expansion, which hinders the amount of
                          damage it can inflict compared to the Top-Tier COMs.
                          While Don Tonberry is versatile, Chichu and Cactuar
                          make for better Strength-based COMs and Red Chocobo
                          (Magic)  makes for a better Magic-based COM, and its
                          situational passive abilities and Feral Link do not
                          make up for the lack of a dedicated SYN or SAB.

Alternatives:

HP +30% (8)-------------: This passive ability provides Don Tonberry with more
                          durability. Using HP +30%, though, makes it harder
                          for Don Tonberry to reach critical condition. If you
                          feel that Don Tonberry's maximum HP is too low,
                          consider exchanging Chain Bonus Boost II for this.

Magic +35% (7)----------: If you choose to build a Magic-based Don Tonberry,
                          replace Strength +35% for this.

Critical: Shield II (6)-: This passive ability reduces incoming damage by 30%
                          for as long as Don Tonberry remains in critical
                          condition. Unlike other Critical: Buff passive
                          abilities, you do not need to reach critical
                          condition with Don Tonberry on the field - you can
                          switch out a monster in critical condition for Don
                          Tonberry and still benefit from the same ability.
                          However, Critical: Tetradefense and its natural
                          defenses should provide Don Tonberry with as much
                          longevity as it needs.

Critical: Faith (5)-----: If you choose to build a Magic-based Don Tonberry,
                          replace Critical: Bravery for this.

Monster------: Golden Chocobo
Monster Role-: Commando
Constellation: Chocobo

The Build:

01) Critical: Tetradefense (RL)
02) HP +30% (8)
03) Strength +35% (7)
04) Resist Physical +36% (7)
05) Resist Magic +36% (7)
06) Role Resonance (7)
07) Feral Speed II (6)
08) Siphon Boost II (6)
09) Chain Bonus Boost II (6)
10) Attack: ATB Charge II (6)

Monster Materials to Use: All-Power.

Crystarium Expansions---: +2 ATB.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Golden Chocobo Adrenaline, Faultsiphon, and
                          Powerchain. Then teach it Jeopardize by infusing 99
                          levels worth of RAV monsters into it.

Advantages--------------: Most easily acquired via Moogle Hunt in A Dying World
                          700 AF, Golden Chocobo is more cost efficient to
                          develop than its COM Chocobo brethren. With 5 ATB and
                          respectable HP and Strength, Golden Chocobo is an
                          excellent COM. It possesses the rare Armor Breaker
                          ability, boosting its Strength by 30% against
                          opponents that resist or halve physical damage.
                          Golden Chocobo can use Stagger: Drain against
                          staggered opponents, which helps it maintain its HP,
                          letting Golden Chocobo receive the full benefits from
                          Adrenaline. While Golden Chocobo shares its Feral
                          Link, Kweh, with Chocobo, Red Chocobo, and White
                          Chocobo, its distinctive sequence of input commands
                          allows Golden Chocobo to reach a maximum Synch Rate
                          of 500%, so it is suitable for capturing monsters.

Disadvantages-----------: Compared to the other COM Chocobos, Golden Chocobo
                          lacks 6 ATB and COM Bonus Boost, making it
                          statistically inferior. Even though Stagger: Drain
                          has its uses, it overrides Armor Breaker, which is
                          considered superior in most circumstances. Like other
                          Strength-based Chocobos, Golden Chocobo suffers from
                          a slow attack speed against moving opponents, as it
                          must oftentimes reorient itself between Attacks.

Alternatives:

Resist Elements +30% (9): Although Golden Chocobo lacks an elemental weakness,
                          this extra defensive passive ability may keep it safe
                          from powerful elemental attacks, such as Typhon's
                          Fireball. If you find yourself frequently thwarted by
                          elemental attacks, try this.

Resilience +40% (8)-----: This bestows a 40% chance to resist all status
                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous
                          status ailments, Pain and Fog, are better mitigated
                          by Resist Pain +66% and Resist Fog +66%. The
                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense
                          against Daze working in conjunction with Resilience
                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The
                          remaining status ailments are not as dangerous in
                          post-game and can be quickly removed by items or SYN
                          buffs if necessary. As such, Resilience +40%'s value
                          for post-game content is diminished.

Auto-Bravery (7)--------: For random battles when you start with Golden
                          Chocobo. However, it is generally inefficient against
                          bosses, since you should not generally lead with a
                          COM. If you only use Golden Chocobo for general use, 
                          consider using Auto-Bravery over Feral Speed II.

Pack Mentality (4)------: This passive ability provides an additive 30% damage
                          boost when every monster in your Paradigm Pack shares
                          the same Crystarium constellation. When all is said
                          and done, though, Pack Mentality only provides a
                          10-15% increase in damage because of how it is
                          combined with other damage modifiers. If you want to
                          maximize Golden Chocobo's damage and do not mind 
                          limiting your monster choices, consider using Pack
                          Mentality in place of Feral Speed II.

Monster------: Metallicactuar
Monster Role-: Commando
Constellation: Cactuar

The Build:

01) Resist Elements +30% (9)
02) HP +30% (8)
03) Magic +35% (7)
04) Resist Physical +36% (7)
05) Resist Magic +36% (7)
06) Role Resonance (7)
07) Feral Speed II (6)
08) Siphon Boost II (6)
09) Chain Bonus Boost II (6)
10) Attack: ATB Charge II (6)

Monster Materials to Use: All-Mana.

Crystarium Expansions---: +2 ATB.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Metallicactuar Adrenaline, Blindside,
                          Faultsiphon, and Lifesiphon. Then teach it Jeopardize
                          by infusing 99 levels worth of RAV monsters into it.

Special Notes-----------: Metallicactuar is the only source of Auto-Faith for
                          infusion purposes.

Advantages--------------: With its high Magic and Mind Piercer, which provides
                          an additional 30% damage boost when its opponent
                          either resists or halves Magic, Metallicactuar is the
                          second best consistent Magic-based COM in the game
                          outside of DLC content. It has an innate resistance
                          to all status ailments and has enough room to fit all
                          relevant defensive passive abilities. Since it has no
                          red-locked passive abilities, Metallicactuar can
                          incorporate Gilfinder II into its repertoire if
                          desired, making it an excellent COM for farming gil
                          from Raspatil. Metallicactuar does not have to move
                          in order to attack, since Ruin and Ruinga spells
                          track their targets, possibly protecting it from
                          dangerous area-of-effect attacks aimed at Serah or
                          Noel. Should Metallicactuar's Strength exceed its
                          Magic through buffs and debuffs, it can use Deshell
                          Chaser and Shell Feeder to raise its defenses and
                          deal more damage. Metallicactuar's Feral Link,
                          Hit-and-Run, has a maximum Synch Rate of 777%, so it
                          is suitable for capturing monsters.

Disadvantages-----------: Metallicactuar only receives two Crystarium
                          Expansions, limiting the amount of damage it can
                          inflict. A Magic-based Red Chocobo is superior to
                          Metallicactuar in every situation that Mind Piercer
                          is not active, as it has 6 ATB, COM Bonus Boost, and
                          a faster casting speed. Metallicactuar is also weak
                          to Fire attacks, making it a poor choice against the
                          likes of Omega, Amodar, Typhon, and PuPu. Because
                          it is Magic-based, Metallicactuar cannot use Deshell
                          Chaser, Shell Feeder, Bloodthirsty, and Scourge very
                          often. Hit-and-Run is unfortunately Strength-based,
                          so it should not be used to solely inflict damage.

Alternatives:

Auto-Faith (7)----------: For random battles when you start with
                          Metallicactuar. However, it is generally inefficient
                          against bosses, since you should not generally lead
                          with a COM. If you only use Metallicactuar for
                          general use, consider using Auto-Faith over Feral
                          Speed II.

Gilfinder II (6)--------: If you are in dire need of gil, use this passive
                          ability to farm it from Raspatil. It also stacks with
                          any Durable Collector's Catalogs that Serah and Noel
                          have equipped. However, if you are not strapped for
                          gil, choose a more useful passive ability.

Pack Mentality (4)------: This passive ability provides an additive 30% damage
                          boost when every monster in your Paradigm Pack shares
                          the same Crystarium constellation. When all is said
                          and done, though, Pack Mentality only provides a
                          10-15% increase in damage because of how it is
                          combined with other damage modifiers. If you want to
                          maximize Metallicactuar's damage and do not mind 
                          limiting your monster choices, consider using Pack
                          Mentality in place of Feral Speed II.

09) Chain Bonus Boost II (6)
10) Attack: ATB Charge II (6)

Monster Materials to Use: Power for levels 3, 4, 6, 7, 9, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18,
                          20-30, 32, 34, 36, 38, and 40. Potent for levels 2,
                          5, 8, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 31, 33, 35, 37, and 39.

Crystarium Expansion----: +1 ATB.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Proto-behemoth Adrenaline, Faultsiphon,
                          Lifesiphon, Powerchain, and Ruinga. Then teach it
                          Jeopardize by infusing 99 levels worth of RAV
                          monsters into it.

Advantages--------------: Found in Academia 500 AF, Proto-behemoth can be
                          maximized for Strength immediately upon capture,
                          requiring only Grades 3 and 4 Mechanical Materials,
                          which can be bought from Chocolina. Because of its
                          respectable Strength, low maximum level, and
                          guaranteed encounter, Proto-behemoth makes an
                          excellent low-cost COM for the storyline's final
                          battles. The length of its sword blade lets it hit
                          opponents without the need to get close, and, despite
                          its appearance, it can attack launched opponents
                          without having to resort to Magic. After Chichu, it
                          is the second best Armor Breaker user outside of DLC
                          content, since other COMs with it stop using Armor
                          Breaker in favor of Stagger: Wound or Stagger: Drain
                          once an opponent has been staggered. Its Bravery
                          Feeder allows it to enhance its Strength even further
                          while stealing from, and thus weakening, its
                          opponent. Due to its three red-locked passive
                          abilities, Proto-behemoth carves a unique place for
                          itself, functioning in a SYN-like fashion once it
                          reaches critical condition. Its Feral Link, Sunder,
                          hits Proto-behemoth's target and any opponents
                          unlucky enough to be in its way. It also has a
                          maximum Synch Rate of 300%, so it is suitable for
                          capturing monsters.

Disadvantages-----------: Because it only has one Crystarium Expansion and an
                          average Attack speed, Proto-behemoth cannot reach the
                          same damage potential as the Top-Tier COMs.
                          Proto-behemoth does not have any notable weaknesses, 
                          but it does not have any innate defenses, either. 
                          While ignoring defensive passive abilities helps
                          Proto-behemoth reach critical condition faster, it
                          also puts it at greater risk of being KO'd.

Alternatives:

Resist Elements +30% (9): Although Proto-behemoth lacks an elemental weakness,
                          this defensive passive ability may keep it safe from
                          powerful elemental attacks, such as Typhon's
                          Fireball. Infusing this would make it more difficult
                          for Proto-behemoth to reach critical condition
                          against opponents that favor elemental attacks,
                          though. If you find yourself frequently thwarted by
                          elemental attacks, try this.

HP +30% (8)-------------: This passive ability provides Proto-behemoth with
                          more durability. Using HP +30%, though, makes it
                          harder for Proto-behemoth to reach critical
                          condition. If you feel that Proto-behemoth's
                          maximum HP is too low, consider exchanging Feral
                          Speed II for this.

Resilience +40% (8)-----: This bestows a 40% chance to resist all status
                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous
                          status ailments, Pain and Fog, are better mitigated
                          by Resist Pain +66% and Resist Fog +66%. The
                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense
                          against Daze working in conjunction with Resilience
                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The
                          remaining status ailments are not as dangerous in
                          post-game and can be quickly removed by items or SYN
                          buffs if necessary. As such, Resilience +40%'s value
                          for post-game content is diminished.

Auto-Bravery (7)--------: For random battles when you start with
                          Proto-behemoth. However, it is generally inefficient
                          against bosses, since you should not generally lead
                          with a COM. If you only use Proto-behemoth for
                          general use, consider using Auto-Bravery over Feral
                          Speed II.

Monster------: Red Chocobo (Strength)
Monster Role-: Commando
Constellation: Chocobo

The Build:

01) Stagger Maintenance II (RL)
02) HP +30% (8)
03) Strength +35% (7)
04) Resist Physical +36% (7)

09) Chain Bonus Boost II (6)
10) Attack: ATB Charge II (6)

Monster Materials to Use: Power for levels 2-20, 55, and 60-99. Potent for
                          levels 21-54 and 56-59.

Crystarium Expansions---: +3 ATB, +1 Bonus Boost.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Red Chocobo (Strength) Adrenaline, Blindside,
                          Powerchain, and Ruinga. Then teach it Jeopardize by
                          infusing 99 levels worth of RAV monsters into it.

Advantages--------------: Red Chocobo (Strength) possesses the highest Strength
                          of all COMs and the second highest Strength of all
                          monsters in the entire game. It has 6 ATB, COM Bonus
                          Boost, naturally resists Fire damage, and has enough
                          room to fit all relevant defensive passive abilities.
                          Red Chocobo (Strength) can utilize Bravery Feeder and
                          Haste Feeder against many bosses and Coliseum
                          battles, including Lightning, Amodar, Nabaat, Typhon,
                          Gilgamesh, Snow, and Valfodr, stealing Bravery and
                          Haste in order to augment itself and the Paradigm
                          Pack while simultaneously weakening the opponent. It
                          can also use Bloodthirsty and Stagger: Wound in
                          tandem, which, together, boosts Red Chocobo
                          (Strength)'s Strength in proportion to the opponent's
                          Wound damage, a combination of abilities limited to
                          Red Chocobo, Don Tonberry, Managarmr, and Tonberry.
                          Its Feral Link, Kweh, coupled with its high Strength,
                          makes Red Chocobo (Strength) a force to be reckoned
                          with in any battle. It also has a maximum Synch Rate
                          of 400%, so Red Chocobo (Strength) is suitable for
                          capturing monsters.

Disadvantages-----------: Like Golden Chocobo, Red Chocobo (Strength) has a
                          slow attack speed against moving opponents, as it
                          must oftentimes reorient itself between Attacks. It
                          is also weak to Ice attacks, making it a poor choice
                          against Ultros. Unfortunately, Red Chocobo (Strength)
                          lacks Armor Breaker, Mind Piercer, and the Chaser
                          abilities that the Top-Tier COMs enjoy, which means
                          that it is only average in comparison.

Alternatives:

Resist Elements +30% (9): Because Red Chocobo (Strength) is weak to Ice
                          attacks, this passive ability may keep it safe from
                          powerful Ice attacks, such as Ultros' Frost Breath.
                          If you find yourself frequently thwarted by elemental
                          attacks, try this.

Resilience +40% (8)-----: This bestows a 40% chance to resist all status
                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous
                          status ailments, Pain and Fog, are better mitigated
                          by Resist Pain +66% and Resist Fog +66%. The
                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense
                          against Daze working in conjunction with Resilience
                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The
                          remaining status ailments are not as dangerous in
                          post-game and can be quickly removed by items or SYN
                          buffs if necessary. As such, Resilience +40%'s value
                          for post-game content is diminished.

Auto-Bravery (7)--------: For random battles when you start with Red Chocobo
                          (Strength). However, it is generally inefficient
                          against bosses, since you should not generally lead
                          with a COM. If you only use Red Chocobo (Strength)
                          for general use, consider using Auto-Bravery over
                          Feral Speed II.

Pack Mentality (4)------: This passive ability provides an additive 30% damage
                          boost when every monster in your Paradigm Pack shares
                          the same Crystarium constellation. When all is said
                          and done, though, Pack Mentality only provides a
                          10-15% increase in damage because of how it is
                          combined with other damage modifiers. If you want to
                          maximize Red Chocobo (Strength)'s damage and do not
                          mind limiting your monster choices, consider using
                          Pack Mentality in place of Feral Speed II.

                          Compared to Red Chocobo (Strength), Red Chocobo
                          (Magic) does not have to move in order to attack,
                          since Ruin and Ruinga spells track their targets,
                          possibly protecting it from dangerous area-of-effect
                          attacks aimed at Serah or Noel. This also makes it a
                          faster attacker than Red Chocobo (Strength), as Red
                          Chocobo (Strength) must take the time to approach its
                          target and reorient itself if it's target moves away.
                          Red Chocobo (Magic) can cast Ruinga twice in a row,
                          wiping out randomly-encountered groups of opponents
                          and, when boosted by Faith, a group of PuPu.

Disadvantages-----------: Because it specializes in Magic, Red Chocobo (Magic)
                          will not be able to use Bloodthirsty and Stagger:
                          Wound, nor can it use Bravery Feeder and Haste Feeder
                          as often as Red Chocobo (Strength), unless its
                          Strength outweighs its Magic due to Chain Gauge
                          percentage, buffs and debuffs. It is also weak to Ice
                          attacks, making it a poor choice against Ultros.
                          While it is generally the better Magic-based COM, Red
                          Chocobo loses to Metallicactuar in damage output when
                          Metallicactuar's Mind Piercer is active. While Red
                          Chocobo (Magic)'s Feral Link, Kweh, has a maximum
                          Synch Rate of 400%, keep in mind that it is a
                          Strength-based attack, so it may not always be
                          suitable for capturing monsters.

Alternatives:

Resist Elements +30% (9): Because Red Chocobo (Magic) is weak to Ice attacks,
                          this passive ability may keep it safe from powerful
                          Ice attacks, such as Ultros' Frost Breath. If you
                          find yourself frequently thwarted by elemental
                          attacks, try this.

Resilience +40% (8)-----: This bestows a 40% chance to resist all status
                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous
                          status ailments, Pain and Fog, are better mitigated
                          by Resist Pain +66% and Resist Fog +66%. The
                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense
                          against Daze working in conjunction with Resilience
                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The
                          remaining status ailments are not as dangerous in
                          post-game and can be quickly removed by items or SYN
                          buffs if necessary. As such, Resilience +40%'s value
                          for post-game content is diminished.

Auto-Faith (7)----------: For random battles when you start with Red Chocobo
                          (Magic). However, it is generally inefficient
                          against bosses, since you should not generally lead
                          with a COM. If you only use Red Chocobo (Magic) for
                          general use, consider using Auto-Faith over Feral
                          Speed II.

Pack Mentality (4)------: This passive ability provides an additive 30% damage
                          boost when every monster in your Paradigm Pack shares
                          the same Crystarium constellation. When all is said
                          and done, though, Pack Mentality only provides a
                          10-15% increase in damage because of how it is
                          combined with other damage modifiers. If you want to
                          maximize Red Chocobo (Magic)'s damage and do not mind
                          limiting your monster choices, consider using Pack
                          Mentality in place of Feral Speed II.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Twilight Odin Blindside. Then teach him
                          Jeopardize by infusing 99 levels worth of RAV
                          monsters into him.

Special Notes-----------: Flourish of Steel is considered one Attack, and its
                          damage is divided up within its 4-hit combination.
                          Because of this, many players erroneously believe
                          that Twilight Odin's damage modifiers are somehow
                          glitched. However, if added together, the total
                          amount of damage that Twilight Odin inflicts reflects
                          his true Strength.

Advantages--------------: Twilight Odin is unique among all monsters in that,
                          because he is the only monster in the game to start
                          with 4 ATB and has a maximum level of 99, he benefits
                          from both 6 ATB and COM Bonus Boost II. He boasts
                          high HP and the second highest Strength of all COMs.
                          He also naturally halves all status ailments and has
                          enough room to fit all relevant defensive passive
                          abilities. Because he is based off of the original
                          Odin from Final Fantasy XIII, Twilight Odin borrows
                          Odin's attack animations for his Attack and Blitz
                          commands. Depending on his proximity to an opponent,
                          Twilight Odin will begin his string of Attacks with
                          Crushing Blow, a quick, powerful dash attack. He
                          will then follow through with 5 Attacks that mimic
                          Flourish of Steel, a 4-hit combination that, when
                          combined with Siphon Boost II and Attack: ATB Charge
                          II, allows Twilight Odin to completely restore his
                          ATB, which results in non-stop attacking. Due to the
                          size of his weapon, Twilight Odin is also good at
                          destroying groups of enemies with his Blitz. Twilight
                          Odin can boost his Strength even further with Poison
                          Chaser, a common status ailment that is effective in
                          boss battles, Coliseum challenges, and random
                          encounters. He can also recover his HP against
                          staggered opponents with Stagger: Drain to reap the
                          full benefits of Adrenaline. Twilight Odin's Feral
                          Link, Zantetsuken, is a powerful attack that hits
                          multiple targets and has a maximum Synch Rate of
                          999%, so it is suitable for capturing monsters.

Disadvantages-----------: Twilight Odin's biggest shortcoming is his slow
                          attack speed. One Flourish of Steel takes a long
                          time to execute. He is also slow to approach his
                          opponent and slow at reorienting himself if his
                          target moves away. Should you use Twilight Odin
                          against flying or launched opponents, be aware that
                          he cannot use his high Strength on them, resorting
                          to Ruin spells. Given his subpar Magic and overall
                          sluggishness, Twilight Odin pales in comparison to
                          the Top-Tier COMs.

Alternatives:

Resist Elements +30% (9): Although Twilight Odin lacks an elemental weakness,
                          this defensive passive ability may keep it safe from
                          powerful elemental attacks, such as Typhon's
                          Fireball. If you find yourself frequently thwarted by
                          elemental attacks, try this.

                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous

                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense
                          against Daze working in conjunction with Resilience
                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The
                          remaining status ailments are not as dangerous in
                          post-game and can be quickly removed by items or SYN
                          buffs if necessary. As such, Resilience +40%'s value
                          for post-game content is diminished.

Auto-Bravery (7)--------: For random battles when you start with Twilight Odin.
                          However, it is generally inefficient against bosses,
                          since you should not generally lead with a COM. If
                          you only use Twilight Odin for general use, consider
                          using Auto-Bravery over Feral Speed II.

[NMBLD10]

Monster------: Buccaboo Ace
Monster Role-: Ravager
Constellation: Goblin (L)

The Build:

01) Stagger Maintenance II (RL)
02) HP +30% (8)
03) Magic +35% (7)
04) Resist Physical +36% (7)
05) Resist Magic +36% (7)
06) Role Resonance (7)
07) Quick Stagger (7) 
08) Siphon Boost II (6)
09) Chain Bonus Boost II (6)
10) Attack: ATB Charge II (6)

Monster Materials to Use: All-Mana. All-Vitality is viable as well, if you
                          prefer greater durability at the expense of less
                          damage.

Crystarium Expansion----: +1 ATB.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Buccaboo Ace Fearsiphon, Overwhelm, and the
                          full gamut of RAV spells - this includes Fire,
                          Thunder, Fira, Thundara, Aerora, Firaga, Blizzaga,
                          Thundaga, and Aeroga. Then teach it Vigor by infusing
                          99 levels worth of COM monsters into it.

Advantages--------------: Buccaboo Ace is a versatile RAV, possessing a
                          SYN-like Feral Link and a consistent, average casting
                          speed of 75. Its red-locked passive ability, Stagger
                          Maintenance II, compliments Buccaboo Ace's natural
                          RAV qualities and gives it room for all relevant
                          defensive passive abilities, which, combined with its
                          natural resistances to Ice and Wind damage and
                          capacity to halve Magic, makes it a sturdy ally.
                          Buccaboo Ace learns Ice Blitz and Aero Blitz,
                          providing it with ways to attack Ice and 
                          Wind-vulnerable opponents and Magic-resistant enemies
                          for more damage and chaining potential than a
                          Blizzaga or Aeroga spell. Its Feral Link, Spirit
                          Infusion, offers minor healing and grants Faith,
                          Protect, and Shell to the entire party, meaning that,
                          depending on the situation, Buccaboo Ace can act as
                          a substitute SYN. When paired with an actual SYN,
                          Buccaboo Ace's Feral Link can expedite its work by
                          conferring defensive buffs, letting the SYN focus on
                          casting offensive buffs.

Disadvantages-----------: Because Buccaboo Ace only has average Magic, 4 ATB,
                          and lacks a RAV Bonus Boost, it cannot compete with
                          the Top-Tier and DLC RAVs in terms of damage output
                          and chaining capability. While useful, Buccaboo Ace's
                          version of Spirit Infusion is not as comprehensive as
                          Goblin Chieftain's, so other party members will have
                          to apply Bravery, Vigilance, and Veil. Also, its
                          Feral Link would likely not be of any use to a SYN
                          with Auto-Buff passive abilities.

Alternatives:

Resilience +40% (8)-----: This bestows a 40% chance to resist all status
                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous
                          status ailments, Pain and Fog, are better mitigated
                          by Resist Pain +66% and Resist Fog +66%. The
                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense
                          against Daze working in conjunction with Resilience
                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The
                          remaining status ailments are not as dangerous in
                          post-game and can be quickly removed by items or SYN
                          buffs if necessary. As such, Resilience +40%'s value
                          for post-game content is diminished.

Feral Speed II (6)------: Because Buccaboo Ace's Feral Link lets it act as a
                          substitute SYN, it would make sense to want it
                          available for any situation. Feral Speed II also
                          helps to recover the Feral Link Gauges of the rest of
                          your Paradigm Pack, too. However, the duration of
                          Spirit Infusion's buffs far surpass the time it takes
                          for Buccaboo Ace to recharge its Feral Link Gauge,

Monster------: Debris
Monster Role-: Ravager
Constellation: Bomb

The Build:

01) Critical: Faith (RL)
02) Auto Enthunder (RL)
03) HP +30% (8)
04) Magic +35% (7)
05) Role Resonance (7)

07) Feral Speed II (6)
08) Siphon Boost II (6)
09) Chain Bonus Boost II (6)
10) Attack: ATB Charge II (6)

Monster Materials to Use: All-Mana. All-Vitality is also viable, if you prefer
                          greater durability at the expense of less damage.

Crystarium Expansion----: +1 ATB.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Debris the full gamut of RAV spells - this
                          includes Blizzara, Aerora, Firaga, Blizzaga,
                          Thundaga, and Aeroga. Then teach it Vigor by infusing
                          99 levels worth of COM monsters into it.

Advantages--------------: The only member of the Bomb family that can match
                          Cloudburst's raw Magic, Debris, like all Bombs, has a
                          blindingly fast casting speed of 170, surpassing the
                          Top-Tier and DLC RAVs. While Coudburst specializes in
                          Ice and Wind magic, Debris is a master of Fire and
                          Thunder magic, covering the opposite end of the
                          spectrum. If it starts a battle against an opponent
                          with a Thunder weakness, Debris automatically
                          receives an Enthunder buff, giving it an edge, and
                          its Felflame and Felspark abilities enhance its
                          damage even further, especially against opponents 
                          afflicted with Imperil. While Cloudburst shares the
                          same benefits using the other two elements, Debris
                          has two major advantages over it. First, Debris lacks
                          any -strike abilities. If you stumble upon an
                          opponent with an Ice weakness, Cloudburst will
                          alternate between Blizzard spells and Froststrikes,
                          which, because of its low Strength and the time it
                          takes to alternate between the two types of attacks,
                          hampers its damage output. On the other hand, Debris
                          will continue to cast spells. Second, Debris
                          naturally halves physical and elemental damage,
                          giving it greater durability. Debris' Feral Link,
                          Elemental Overdrive, is a powerful Magic-based attack
                          that hits all opponents on the field. It also has a
                          maximum Synch Rate of 400%, so Debris is suitable for
                          capturing monsters.

Disadvantages-----------: To offset its natural resistances, Debris has low HP
                          and takes normal damage against Magic. It only has
                          4 ATB and lacks a RAV Bonus Boost, so it cannot
                          compete with the Top-Tier and DLC RAVs in terms of
                          damage output and chaining capability. Unfortunately,
                          while it shares these same disadvantages with
                          Cloudburst, Debris' Elemental Overdrive is generally
                          regarded as less useful than Cloudburst's
                          buff-bestowing Friendly Fire.

Alternatives:

Resist Physical +36% (7): Given Debris' low HP, it would make sense to enhance
                          its durability with Resist Physical +36% and Resist
                          Magic +36%, since, combined, they are better at
                          maintaining HP than HP +30% alone. But because it has
                          two red-locks and natural resistances that diminish
                          the effects of Resist Physical +36% and Resist Magic
                          +36%, Debris only has room for a single defensive
                          passive ability. It is practical, however, to remove
                          one or two of Debris' more situational passive
                          abilities, such as Role Resonance or Feral Speed II,
                          for Resist Physical +36% and Resist Magic +36% to 
                          help Debris maintain its HP for Vigor.

Resist Magic +36% (7)---: See above.

Stagger Maintenance II--: If Debris is the one to stagger an opponent, Stagger
                          Maintenance II ensures that it stays staggered for
                          30% longer. This passive ability is also synergetic
                          with Quick Stagger. However, it is often possible
                          to reach the maximum Stagger duration of 45 seconds
                          without this passive ability at all, and, as a
                          result, Stagger Maintenance II serves more as
                          "duration insurance" instead. This can be especially
                          handy for unrelenting opponents like Gilgamesh and
                          Valfodr.

Monster------: Nekton
Monster Role-: Ravager
Constellation: Vermin (S)

The Build:

01) HP +30% (8)
02) Magic +35% (7)
03) Resist Physical +36% (7)
04) Resist Magic +36% (7)
05) Role Resonance (7)

07) Feral Speed II (6)
08) Siphon Boost II (6)
09) Chain Bonus Boost II (6)
10) Attack: ATB Charge II (6)

Monster Materials to Use: Mana for levels 2-20, 50, and 60-99. Potent for
                          levels 21-49 and 51-59. All-Vitality is also viable,
                          if you prefer greater durability at the expense of
                          less damage.

Crystarium Expansions---: +3 ATB, +1 Bonus Boost. However, choosing +2 ATB, +2
                          Bonus Boosts instead is also viable, as, at the
                          expense of double casting -ga spells against large
                          groups, Nekton will have an easier time synchronizing
                          its attacks with Paradigm Shifts against lone,
                          powerful opponents.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Nekton the full gamut of RAV spells - this
                          includes Fire, Aero, Fira, Aerora, Firaga, Thundaga,
                          and Aeroga. Then teach it Vigor by infusing 99 levels
                          worth of COM monsters into it.

Advantages--------------: With its high Magic, 6 ATB, RAV Bonus Boost, and lack
                          of weaknesses, Nekton is a formidable, exemplary RAV.
                          Nekton does not have any red-locked passive
                          abilities, which means that it can be infused with
                          all of the relevant RAV-focused and defensive passive
                          abilities, giving it great longevity in battle.
                          Nekton's small size also aids in its survival, as
                          some enemies, like bipedal Behemoths, will completely
                          miss it with their sweeping attacks. Its Feral Link,
                          Spider Web, causes Magic-based damage and allows it
                          to possibly inflict Fog, Pain, and Slow, and Deshell
                          on Nekton's target, allowing it to function in a 
                          SAB-like capacity. It also has a maximum Synch Rate
                          of 300%, so it is suitable for capturing monsters.

Disadvantages-----------: Despite its high Magic, Nekton has a lower than
                          average casting speed of 60. It learns Froststrike,
                          so Nekton will alternate between Blizzard spells and
                          Froststrikes if its opponent has an Ice weakness.
                          While alternating between two types of attacks has
                          the benefit of slightly raising an opponent's Chain
                          Gauge more than casting Blizzards in succession, it
                          also slows Nekton down due to its slow casting speed,
                          hampering its damage potential. Against agile
                          opponents, its Froststrikes might sometimes miss,
                          too. Although Nekton's Feral Link can inflict rare
                          status ailments, the chances of them landing depend
                          on the Feral Link's Synch Rate and its target's Chain
                          Gauge and ailment resilience, rendering Spider Web's
                          effectiveness highly situational.

Alternatives:

Resist Elements +30% (9): Although Nekton lacks an elemental weakness, this 
                          defensive passive ability may keep it safe from 
                          powerful elemental attacks, such as Typhon's
                          Fireball. If you find yourself frequently thwarted by
                          elemental attacks, try this.

Resilience +40% (8)-----: This bestows a 40% chance to resist all status
                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous
                          status ailments, Pain and Fog, are better mitigated
                          by Resist Pain +66% and Resist Fog +66%. The
                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense
                          against Daze working in conjunction with Resilience
                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The
                          remaining status ailments are not as dangerous in
                          post-game and can be quickly removed by items or SYN
                          buffs if necessary. As such, Resilience +40%'s value
                          for post-game content is diminished.

Stagger Maintenance II--: If Nekton is the one to stagger an opponent, Stagger
                          Maintenance II ensures that it stays staggered for
                          30% longer. This passive ability is also synergetic
                          with Quick Stagger. However, it is often possible
                          to reach the maximum Stagger duration of 45 seconds
                          without this passive ability at all, and, as a
                          result, Stagger Maintenance II serves more as
                          "duration insurance" instead. This can be especially
                          handy for unrelenting opponents like Gilgamesh and

Monster Role-: Ravager
Constellation: Terraquatic

The Build:

01) HP +30% (8)
02) Magic +35% (7)
03) Resist Physical +36% (7)
04) Role Resonance (7)
05) Quick Stagger (7)
06) Feral Speed II (6)
07) Siphon Boost II (6)
08) Improved Cure II (6)
09) Chain Bonus Boost II (6)
10) Attack: ATB Charge II (6)

Monster Materials to Use: Mana for levels 2-10, 20, 30, 35, and 40-99. Potent
                          for levels 11-19, 21-29, 31-34, and 36-39.
                          All-Vitality is also viable, if you prefer greater
                          durability at the expense of less damage.

Crystarium Expansions---: +3 ATB, +1 Bonus Boost. However, choosing +2 ATB, +2
                          Bonus Boosts instead is also viable, as, at the
                          expense of double casting -ga spells against large
                          groups, Spiceacilian will have an easier time
                          synchronizing its attacks with Paradigm Shifts
                          against lone, powerful opponents.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Spiceacilian the full gamut of RAV spells -
                          this includes Fire, Blizzard, Thunder, Fira,
                          Blizzara, Thundara, Firaga, Blizzaga, and Thundaga.
                          Then teach it Vigor by infusing 99 levels worth of
                          COM monsters into it.

Advantages--------------: Spiceacilian sports many advantages, including 6 ATB,
                          RAV Bonus Boost, and one of the highest Magic stats
                          among RAVs. It's greatest asset, though, is its Feral
                          Link, Refreshing Rain, which heals the entire party
                          and bestows Veil and Regen, which is a buff
                          unavailable to SYNs. Refreshing Rain is the fastest
                          charging Feral Link in the game, clocking in at 60
                          seconds. Through liberal use of its Feral Link,
                          Spiceacilian has incredible staying power and can
                          easily maintain Vigor. It also allows it to act in a
                          MED-like fashion in the heat of battle.

Disadvantages-----------: While Spiceacilian has high Magic, it has a slow 65
                          casting speed. It learns Galestrike, so Spiceacilian
                          will alternate between Aero spells and Galestrikes if
                          its opponent has a Wind weakness. While alternating
                          between two types of attacks has the benefit of
                          slightly raising an opponent's Chain Gauge more than
                          casting Aeros in succession, it also slows
                          Spiceacilian down due to its slow casting speed,
                          hampering its damage potential. Against agile
                          opponents, its Galestrikes might sometimes miss, too.

Alternatives:

Resist Elements +30% (9): Because Spiceacilian is weak to Lightning attacks,
                          this passive ability may keep it safe from powerful
                          Lightning attacks, such as Valfodr's Thundaga. If you
                          find yourself frequently thwarted by elemental
                          attacks, try this.

Resilience +40% (8)-----: This bestows a 40% chance to resist all status
                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous
                          status ailments, Pain and Fog, are better mitigated
                          by Resist Pain +66% and Resist Fog +66%. The
                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense
                          against Daze working in conjunction with Resilience
                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The
                          remaining status ailments are not as dangerous in
                          post-game and can be quickly removed by items or SYN
                          buffs if necessary. As such, Resilience +40%'s value
                          for post-game content is diminished.

Resist Magic +36% (7)---: While Resist Physical +36% and Resist Magic +36% are
                          statistically superior to HP +30% and Resist Physical
                          +36% for preserving a higher HP percentage and
                          Adrenaline, post-game bosses and Coliseum opponents
                          telegraph their most powerful Magic-based attacks,
                          giving you plenty of time to prepare an adequate
                          defense. As such, HP +30% and Resist Physical +36%
                          should prove to be more useful in general, especially
                          against Gilgamesh. However, given its elemental
                          weakness, it is very practical to remove one of
                          Spiceacilian's more situational passive abilities,
                          like Role Resonance or Feral Speed II, to make room
                          for Resist Magic +36% and completely maximize its
                          defenses.

Stagger Maintenance II--: If Spiceacilian is the one to stagger an opponent,
                          Stagger Maintenance II ensures that it stays
                          staggered for 30% longer. This passive ability is
                          also synergetic with Quick Stagger. However, it is
                          often possible to reach the maximum Stagger duration
                          of 45 seconds without this passive ability at all,
                          and, as a result, Stagger Maintenance II serves more
                          as "duration insurance" instead. This can be
                          especially handy for unrelenting opponents like
                          Gilgamesh and Valfodr.

[NMBLD14]

Monster------: Swampmonk
Monster Role-: Ravager
Constellation: Sahagin

The Build:

01) HP +30% (8)
02) Magic +35% (7)
03) Resist Physical +36% (7)
04) Resist Magic +36% (7)
05) Role Resonance (7)
06) Quick Stagger (7)
07) Feral Speed II (6)
08) Siphon Boost II (6)
09) Chain Bonus Boost II (6)
10) Attack: ATB Charge II (6)

Monster Materials to Use: All-Mana. All-Vitality is also viable, if you prefer
                          greater durability at the expense of less damage.

Crystarium Expansions---: +2 ATB.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Swampmonk Overwhelm, Fearsiphon, and the full
                          gamut of RAV spells - this includes Fire, Thunder,
                          Aero, Fira, Thundara, Aerora, Firaga, Thundaga, and
                          Aeroga. Then teach it Vigor by infusing 99 levels
                          worth of COM monsters into it.

Advantages--------------: Swampmonk is a monster to be reckoned with, boasting
                          the highest Magic of all non-DLC RAVs and a
                          respectable casting speed of 75. Swampmonk does not
                          have any red-locked passive abilities, which means
                          that it can be infused with all of the relevant
                          RAV-focused and defensive passive abilities, allaying
                          its weakness to Thunder attacks. Against an opponent
                          weak to Ice damage, Swampmonk will alternate between
                          Blizzard spells and Froststrikes. While this would
                          normally be a disadvantage, Swampmonk's Froststrike
                          is composed of two attacks that each affect its
                          opponent's Chain Gauge, which, together, raise it
                          more than a single, Blizzard. Its Feral Link, High
                          Dive, is an Ice-based attack that hits its target
                          and nearby enemies, making it highly effective
                          against opponents vulnerable to Ice damage.

Disadvantages-----------: While Swampmonk's Froststrike is more useful than
                          other RAVs', it slows it down, lowering its overall
                          damage potential. It must also approach its target
                          before using Froststrike, meaning that, against agile
                          opponents, it might sometimes miss. Swampmonk only
                          has 5 ATB and lacks a RAV Bonus Boost, so it cannot
                          compete with the Top-Tier and DLC RAVs in terms of
                          damage output and chaining capability. It is also
                          weak to Thunder attacks, making it a poor choice
                          against the likes of Lightning, PuPu, and Valfodr. 
                          While Swampmonk's High Dive has a maximum Synch Rate
                          of 400%, keep in mind that it is an Ice-based attack,
                          so it may not always be suitable for capturing
                          monsters.

Alternatives:

Resist Elements +30% (9): Because Swampmonk is weak to Lightning attacks, this 
                          passive ability may keep it safe from powerful
                          Lightning attacks, such as Valfodr's Thundaga. If you
                          find yourself frequently thwarted by elemental
                          attacks, try this.

Resilience +40% (8)-----: This bestows a 40% chance to resist all status
                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous
                          status ailments, Pain and Fog, are better mitigated
                          by Resist Pain +66% and Resist Fog +66%. The
                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense
                          against Daze working in conjunction with Resilience
                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The
                          remaining status ailments are not as dangerous in
                          post-game and can be quickly removed by items or SYN
                          buffs if necessary. As such, Resilience +40%'s value
                          for post-game content is diminished.

Stagger Maintenance II--: If Swampmonk is the one to stagger an opponent,
                          Stagger Maintenance II ensures that it stays
                          staggered for 30% longer. This passive ability is
                          also synergetic with Quick Stagger. However, it is
                          often possible to reach the maximum Stagger duration
                          of 45 seconds without this passive ability at all,
                          and, as a result, Stagger Maintenance II serves more
                          as "duration insurance" instead. This can be
                          especially handy for unrelenting opponents like
                          Gilgamesh and Valfodr.

Pack Mentality (4)------: This passive ability provides an additive 30% damage
                          boost when every monster in your Paradigm Pack shares
                          the same Crystarium constellation. When all is said
                          and done, though, Pack Mentality only provides a
                          10-15% increase in damage because of how it is
                          combined with other damage modifiers. If you want to
                          maximize Swampmonk's damage and do not mind limiting
                          your monster choices, consider using Pack Mentality
                          in place of Feral Speed II.

[NMBLD15]

Monster------: Navidon
Monster Role-: Sentinel
Constellation: Armadillon, Armadon

The Build:

01) Feral Surge (RL)
02) Improved Counter II (RL)
03) Resist Elements +30% (9)
04) HP +30% (8)
05) Resilience +40% (8)
06) Resist Physical +36% (7)
07) Resist Magic +36% (7)
08) Feral Speed II (6)
09) Improved Guard II (6)
10) Improved Ward (5)

Monster Materials to Use: All-Vitality.

Crystarium Expansions---: +2 Bonus Boosts.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Navidon Provoke, Mediguard, Steelguard, and
                          Fringeward. Then teach it Reprieve by infusing 99
                          levels worth of MED monsters into it.

Advantages--------------: Found in the Clearwater Marshes of the Archylte
                          Steppe in rainy weather, Navidon is a formidable
                          SEN that only requires Grade 4 Biological Materials
                          to develop. While its maximum HP is even lower than
                          Goblin Chieftain's, Navidon has an innate resistance
                          to Ice attacks and halves the damage received from
                          physical, magic, Fire, Lightning, and Wind attacks,
                          which more than compensates for it. SEN Bonus Boost
                          II ensures that Navidon can reduce normal and Wound
                          damage as much as possible. Its counterattacks are
                          Ice-based attacks, making it highly effective against
                          opponents vulnerable to Ice damage.

Disadvantages-----------: Like most SENs that focus on defense, Navidon has
                          low Strength and Magic, preventing it from using its
                          Feral Link, Shell Spin, and its counterattacks
                          effectively. Even though it has a red-locked Improved
                          Counter II to enhance its counterattacks, all
                          Armadillon SENs use Magic-based counterattacks and
                          have poor Magic. To make matters worse, Navidon's
                          counterattacks are Ice-based attacks, so they are
                          useless against opponents with immunity to Ice.
                          Navidon is restricted to 3 ATB, preventing it from
                          using its abilities, such as Steelguard, for as long
                          as Pulse Gladiator, a Top-Tier SEN. While Shell Spin
                          has a maximum Synch Rate of 400%, it is based off of
                          Navidon's low Strength, so it is unsuitable for
                          capturing monsters.

Alternatives:

Rapid Recovery (8)------: This passive ability reduces the duration of status
                          ailments by 25%. This sounds more useful than it is
                          in practice, however. Usually, a status ailment can
                          either be ignored or it needs to be immediately
                          removed by items or Esuna. Neither of these
                          situations benefit from Rapid Recovery. Only use
                          this passive ability if you feel Navidon does not
                          benefit from any of the other suggested passive
                          abilities.

Strength +35% (7)-------: Navidon has impressive Strength to boost the power of
                          its Feral Link, Shell Spin, with an All-Power build.
                          However, using an All-Power build lowers its HP even
                          more, negating the benefits of its natural defenses.
                          Note that Navidon's counterattacks are Magic-based,
                          so do not use this passive ability to try and
                          enhance them. Furthermore, SEN A.I. will never use
                          counterattacks against the more difficult post-game
                          bosses and Coliseum opponents.

Role Resonance (7)------: Navidon's Feral Link can be powerful with an
                          All-Power build. This passive ability allows you to
                          defend yourself in the Tortoise Paradigm, block
                          powerful attacks, and then retaliate by unleashing
                          an enhanced Shell Spin. Note that Role Resonance is
                          not suggested for use with counterattacks, as it is
                          impractical to stay in the Tortoise Paradigm long
                          enough to see Entrench or Vendetta.

Critical: Shield II (6)-: This passive ability reduces incoming damage by 30%
			  for as long as Navidon remains in critical condition.
			  Unlike other Critical: Buff passive abilities, you do
                          not need to reach critical condition with Navidon on
                          the field - you can switch out a monster in critical
                          condition for Navidon and still benefit from the
                          ability.

Monster------: Silver Chocobo
Monster Role-: Sentinel
Constellation: Chocobo

The Build:

01) Item Scavenger II (RL)
02) Resist Elements +30% (9)
03) HP +30% (8)
04) Resilience +40% (8)
05) Magic +35% (7)
06) Resist Physical +36% (7)
07) Resist Magic +36% (7)
08) Role Resonance (7)
09) Improved Guard II (6)
10) Improved Ward (5)

Monster Materials to Use: All-Mana. All-Vitality is also viable, especially if
                          you prefer not to use offensive SENs.

Crystarium Expansions---: +2 Bonus Boosts.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Silver Chocobo Entrench and Element Guard. Then
                          teach it Reprieve by infusing 99 levels worth of MED
                          monsters into it.

Special Notes-----------: An All-Potent Silver Chocobo can be used to serve in
                          both battle and Chocobo Racing. However, if you will
                          only use Silver Chocobo in battle, an All-Mana build
                          is better for offense, and an All-Vitality build is
                          better for longevity.

Advantages--------------: Not only is Silver Chocobo easy to acquire, it is
                          also extremely versatile, too. Most easily acquired
                          via Improved Moogle Throw in Academia 4XX AF, Silver
                          Chocobo is cost-efficient to develop. Despite lacking
                          natural resistances, its high HP, Strength, and Magic
                          allow it to function well as both an offensive and
                          defensive SEN. With SEN Bonus Boost II and 4 ATB,
                          Silver Chocobo can reduce normal and Wound damage as
                          much as it can and use its abilities, such as
                          Steelguard, for longer than Goblin Chieftain, a
                          Top-Tier SEN. Silver Chocobo's Feral Link, Kweh Kweh,
                          is a powerful Magic-based attack that, when coupled
                          with Role Resonance, allows you to defend yourself
                          in the Tortoise Paradigm, block powerful attacks, and
                          retaliate by unleashing an enhanced Kweh Kweh. It
                          also has a maximum Synch Rate of 300%, so it is
                          suitable for capturing monsters.

Disadvantages-----------: Silver Chocobo does not naturally resist physical,
                          magic, or elemental attacks, so it cannot tank as
                          well as SENs like Pulse Gladiator or Navidon. It also
                          lacks innate defenses against status ailments, unlike
                          SENs like Goblin Chieftain or Tezcatlipoca. Although
                          Silver Chocobo has high Strength to utilize powerful
                          counterattacks, SEN A.I. will never use them against
                          the more difficult post-game bosses and Coliseum
                          opponents, reducing its effectiveness. Consistent use
                          of Kweh Kweh is also contingent upon the opponent and
                          personal play style.

Alternatives:

Critical: Haste (8)-----: Although it has high HP, Silver Chocobo lacks the
                          same beneficial resistances that Pulse Gladiator
                          enjoys, so this may be activated against the
                          strongest of opponents. Haste is also a rare buff
                          that can be utilized by the entire Paradigm Pack,
                          which may prove useful in extreme situations.

Critical: Tetradefense(8: Although it has high HP, Silver Chocobo lacks the
                          same beneficial resistances that Pulse Gladiator
                          enjoys, so this may be activated against the
                          strongest of opponents. This passive ability will
                          also help maximize the Paradigm Pack's defenses while
                          you spend time recovering. However, the defensive
                          buffs granted by Critical: Tetradefense can be
                          bestowed by Serah, Noel, or a SYN, and, if you are 
                          in a battle where your SEN enters critical condition,
                          you should probably have the defensive buffs in place
                          already.

Rapid Recovery (8)------: This passive ability reduces the duration of status
                          ailments by 25%. This sounds more useful than it is
                          in practice, however. Usually, a status ailment can
                          either be ignored or it needs to be immediately
                          removed by items or Esuna. Neither of these
                          situations benefit from Rapid Recovery. Only use
                          this passive ability if you feel Silver Chocobo does
                          not benefit from any of the other suggested passive
                          abilities.

Strength +35% (7)-------: Silver Chocobo has impressive strength to boost the
                          power of its counterattacks. However, SEN A.I. will
                          never use counterattacks against the more difficult
                          post-game bosses and Coliseum opponents. If you
                          either want Silver Chocobo to be more offensive, feel
                          that it has adequate defenses already, or want to use
                          counterattacks for random encounters, consider
                          replacing Resist Elements +30% or Resilience +40% for
                          this.

Critical: Shield II (6)-: This passive ability reduces incoming damage by 30%
			  for as long as Silver Chocobo remains in critical
			  condition. Unlike other Critical: Buff passive
                          abilities, you do not need to reach critical
                          condition with Silver Chocobo on the field - you can
                          switch out a monster in critical condition for
                          Silver Chocobo and still benefit from the ability.

Item Collector (6)------: When paired with Silver Chocobo's red-locked Item
                          Scavenger II, this passive ability ensures that
                          Silver Chocobo increases the chances of obtaining
                          all sorts of items if it is the active monster when
                          a battle ends. However, because SENs are not fielded
                          as often as other Roles, Item Collector may see
                          little use.

Improved Counter II (6)-: This passive ability boosts the effectiveness of
                          counterattack abilities by 80%. Unfortunately,
                          post-game bosses and Coliseum opponents that might
                          benefit from an offensive SEN force SENs to only
                          use defensive abilities, like Steelguard, instead.
                          However, if you either want Silver Chocobo to be more
                          offensive, feel that it has adequate defenses
                          already, or want to use counterattacks for random
                          encounters, consider replacing Resist Elements +30%
                          or Resilience +40% for this.

Feral Speed II (6)------: Silver Chocobo has a powerful, Magic-based Feral
                          Link. Feral Speed II on an active monster also
                          increases the charge rate of the inactive monsters in
                          your Paradigm Pack. However, Hypnocrowns equipped on
                          Serah or Noel can either substitute for this passive
                          ability or augment it. If you make liberal use of its
                          Feral Link in the Tortoise Paradigm, consider
                          replacing Resist Elements +30% or Resilience +40% for
                          this.

Pack Mentality (4)------: This passive ability provides an additive 30% damage
                          boost when every monster in your Paradigm Pack shares
                          the same Crystarium constellation. When all is said
                          and done, though, Pack Mentality only provides a
                          10-30% increase in damage because of how it is
                          combined with other damage modifiers. If you want to
                          maximize Silver Chocobo's Feral Link or counterattack
                          damage and do not mind limiting your monster choices,
                          consider using Pack Mentality in place of Resist
                          Elements +30% or Resilience +40%.

Monster------: Tezcatlipoca
Monster Role-: Sentinel
Constellation: Woodwraith

The Build:

01) Critical: Tetradefense (RL)

03) Resist Elements +30% (9)
04) HP +30% (8)
05) Resilience +40% (8)

07) Resist Magic +36% (7)
08) Feral Speed II (6)
09) Improved Guard II (6)
10) Improved Ward (5)

Monster Materials to Use: All-Vitality.

Crystarium Expansions---: +1 ATB, +2 Bonus Boosts.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Tezcatlipoca Mediguard and Deathward. Then
                          teach it Reprieve by infusing 99 levels worth of MED
                          monsters into it.

Special Notes-----------: You have the option of only raising Tezcatlipoca to
                          Lv. 59 to avoid learning Auto-Tetradefense, but the
                          additional passive slot will not be used for anything
                          more significant. It is also the only source of
                          Auto-Tetradefense for infusion purposes.

Advantages--------------: Like Proto-behemoth, Tezcatlipoca can be found in
                          Academia 500 AF and only requires Grades 3 and 4
                          Biological Materials, which can be bought from
                          Chocolina. As such, it can serve as an adequate,
                          low-cost SEN for the storyline's final battles. It
                          has high HP, resists Lightning attacks, halves all
                          status ailments, and naturally learns Resist Physical
                          +36% and Resist Magic +36%. With SEN Bonus Boost II
                          and 4 ATB, Tezcatlipoca can reduce normal and Wound
                          damage as much as it can and use its abilities, such
                          as Steelguard, for longer than Goblin Chieftain, a
                          Top-Tier SEN. It's Feral Link, Raging Torrent,
                          provokes opponents to focus on Tezcatlipoca and can
                          possibly inflict the debilitating status ailments, 
                          Curse, Fog, Pain, Debrave, and Defaith, the latter
                          two of which cannot be used by SABs.

Disadvantages-----------: Tezcatlipoca has a 3% tame rate, making it very
                          difficult to capture. Its Strength and Magic are
                          abysmally low, so it cannot effectively use
                          counterattacks or its Feral Link for inflicting
                          damage. Although Tezcatlipoca's Feral Link can
                          inflict rare status ailments, the chances of them
                          landing depend on the Feral Link's Synch Rate and its
                          target's Chain Gauge and ailment resilience,
                          rendering Raging Torrent's effectiveness highly
                          situational. While Tezcatlipoca's Raging Torrent has
                          a maximum Synch Rate of 300%, keep in mind that it
                          is a Magic-based attack. Because of its low Magic,
                          Tezcatlipoca is unsuitable for capturing monsters.

Alternatives:

Critical: Haste (8)-----: Although it has high HP, Tezcatlipoca lacks the same
                          beneficial resistances that Pulse Gladiator enjoys,
                          so this may be activated against the strongest of
                          opponents. Haste is also a rare buff that can be
                          utilized by the entire Paradigm Pack, which may prove
                          useful in extreme situations, and pairs well with
                          Tezcatlipoca's red-locked Critical: Tetradefense.

Rapid Recovery (8)------: This passive ability reduces the duration of status
                          ailments by 25%. This sounds more useful than it is
                          in practice, however. Usually, a status ailment can
                          either be ignored or it needs to be immediately
                          removed by items or Esuna. Neither of these
                          situations benefit from Rapid Recovery. Only use
                          this passive ability if you feel Tezcatlipoca does
                          not benefit from any of the other suggested passive
                          abilities.

Critical: Shield II (6)-: This passive ability reduces incoming damage by 30%
			  for as long as Tezcatlipoca remains in critical
			  condition. Unlike other Critical: Buff passive
                          abilities, you do not need to reach critical
                          condition with Tezcatlipoca on the field - you can
                          switch out a monster in critical condition for
                          Tezcatlipoca and still benefit from the ability.

Monster------: Amanojaku
Monster Role-: Synergist
Constellation: Spook, Zwerg Droid

The Build:

01) Weak Spot (RL)
02) Auto-Haste (9)
03) Auto-Tetradefense (9)
04) HP +30% (8)
05) Magic +35% (7)

07) Resist Magic +36% (7)
08) Auto-Bravery (7)
09) Auto-Faith (7)
10) First Strike (6)

Monster Materials to Use: Mana for levels 10 and 21-30. Potent for levels 2-9,
                          11-20, and 31-45.

Crystarium Expansions---: +2 ATB. However, choosing +2 Bonus Boosts is also
                          viable if you prefer buff duration over ATB.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Amanojaku Boon by infusing 99 levels worth of
                          SAB monsters into it. After that, you can carefully
                          mold it by choosing select abilities, such as only
                          Bravery and Bravega. Amanojaku's limited moveset can
                          be used to your advantage, since you can specialize
                          it in any way you want.

Advantages--------------: The only SYN to only learn En- buffs, Amanojaku
                          serves as a true blank slate, offering even more
                          customizability than Ultros. If, for some reason, you
                          only wanted to buff your party with Bravery, it could
                          oblige. By infusing Amanojaku with only certain
                          buffs, it can avoid wasting precious time on unneeded
                          ones. It is particularly potent in battles when you
                          want to Auto-Buff or Critical: Buff your entire party
                          at the beginning so that Amanojaku quickly bestows
                          En- buffs. These unique traits, as well as its fast
                          105 casting speed, make Amanojaku a valuable asset
                          for short, surgical battles. It also carries the
                          red-locked passive ability, Weak Spot, boosting
                          Serah and Noel's damage if they target an opponent's
                          weakness whenever it is in on the field.

Disadvantages-----------: Although it does not have any innate weaknesses,
                          Amanojaku has low HP, even with HP +30%, and lacks
                          natural defenses. It also has low Magic, does not
                          have access to SYN Bonus Boosts without sacrificing
                          ATB, and lacks any form of Augment Maintenance, so
                          the duration of its buff leave much to be desired,
                          which means that Amanojaku should not be used in
                          long, drawn-out battles. While Amanojaku's Feral
                          Link, Giant Drop, has a maximum Synch Rate of 300%,
                          it is unsuitable for capturing monsters due to its
                          poor Strength and Magic.

Alternatives:

Resist Elements +30% (9): Although Amanojaku lacks an elemental weakness, it
                          has low HP, so this defensive passive ability may
                          keep it safe from powerful elemental attacks, such as
                          Typhon's Fireball. If you find yourself frequently
                          thwarted by elemental attacks, try this.

Resilience +40% (8)-----: This bestows a 40% chance to resist all status
                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous
                          status ailments, Pain and Fog, are better mitigated
                          by Resist Pain +66% and Resist Fog +66%. The
                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense
                          against Daze working in conjunction with Resilience
                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The
                          remaining status ailments are not as dangerous in
                          post-game and can be quickly removed by items or SYN
                          buffs if necessary. As such, Resilience +40%'s value
                          for post-game content is diminished.

Auto-Vigilance (8)------: If you plan to use Amanojaku solely for passing on
                          Auto-Buffs to the rest of the Paradigm Pack, you
                          could replace Auto-Tetradefense with Auto-Vigilance,
                          Auto-Protect, and Auto-Shell in order to extend their
                          durations for 30 seconds more. If you decide to do
                          this, consider replacing Resist Physical +36% and
                          Resist Magic +36% with Auto-Protect and Auto-Shell.
                          Remember, while it is much easier to use these
                          replacements instead of capturing Tezcatlipoca for
                          Auto-Tetradefense, they are not necessarily the most
                          optimal options.

Auto-Protect (7)--------: See above.

Auto-Shell (7)----------: See above.

Defense Maintenance (5)-: This passive ability extends the duration of Protect,
                          Protectga, Shell, Shellga, Veil, Veilga, and
                          Vigilaga. Since defensive buffs last longer than
                          augments, though, the extended duration may not be 
                          necessary for most battles.

[NMBLD19]

Monster------: Gahongas
Monster Role-: Synergist
Constellation: Demon

The Build:

01) Auto-Haste (9)
02) Auto-Tetradefense (9)
03) HP +30% (8)
04) Magic +35% (7)
05) Resist Physical +36% (7)
06) Resist Magic +36% (7)
07) Auto-Bravery (7)
08) Auto-Faith (7)
09) Feral Speed II (6)
10) First Strike (6)

Monster Materials to Use: Mana for levels 62-65 and 67-99. Potent for levels
                          2-61 and 66.

Crystarium Expansions---: +3 ATB, +1 Bonus Boost. However, choosing +2 ATB, +2
                          Bonus Boosts is also viable if you prefer buff
                          duration over ATB.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Gahongas Bravega, Faithga, Vigilaga, Protectga,
                          Shellga, Enfire, Enfrost, Enthunder, and Enaero. Then
                          teach her boon by infusing 99 levels worth of SAB
                          monsters into her.

Advantages--------------: While Gahongas shares the same advantages and
                          Yakshini, including the same 100 casting speed and
                          the capability to serve as a competent, all-around
                          SYN, she has the luxury of an extra Crystarium
                          Expansion, giving her access to SYN Bonus Boost,
                          which increases the duration of the buffs she casts.
                          Gahongas does not have any red-locked passive
                          abilities, which means she can be infused with all
                          three core defensive passive abilities with space
                          left over for some minor flexibility. The most
                          important characteristic Gahongas has in common with
                          Yakshini, though, is her Feral Link, Fanatical Dance.
                          Fanatical Dance bestows Protect, Shell, Bravery,
                          Faith, Veil, and Vigilance, with each buff in
                          Gahongas' Feral Link applying Boon to all buffs
                          before it, which results in a long-lasting
                          application of almost every buff in the game.

Disadvantages-----------: Despite having access to at least SYN Bonus Boost,
                          Gahongas has subpar Magic compared to other SYNs and
                          lacks the valuable passive ability, Augment
                          Maintenance II, so the durations of her buffs are not
                          comparable to the likes of Purple Chocobo or Imp. She
                          naturally learns Shell and Veilga, so Gahongas cannot
                          be used strictly as an augment-focused SYN. Given her
                          casting speed, though, the time she spends casting
                          defensive buffs in minimal.

Alternatives:

Resist Elements +30% (9): Although Gahongas lacks an elemental weakness, she
                          has low HP, so this defensive passive ability may
                          keep her safe from powerful elemental attacks, such
                          as Typhon's Fireball. If you find yourself frequently
                          thwarted by elemental attacks, try this.

Resilience +40% (8)-----: This bestows a 40% chance to resist all status
                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous
                          status ailments, Pain and Fog, are better mitigated
                          by Resist Pain +66% and Resist Fog +66%. The
                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense
                          against Daze working in conjunction with Resilience
                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The
                          remaining status ailments are not as dangerous in
                          post-game and can be quickly removed by items or SYN
                          buffs if necessary. As such, Resilience +40%'s value
                          for post-game content is diminished.

Auto-Vigilance (8)------: If you plan to use Gahongas solely for passing on
                          Auto-Buffs to the rest of the Paradigm Pack, you
                          could replace Auto-Tetradefense with Auto-Vigilance,
                          Auto-Protect, and Auto-Shell in order to extend their
                          durations for 30 seconds more. If you decide to do
                          this, consider replacing Resist Physical +36% and
                          First Strike with Auto-Protect and Auto-Shell.
                          Remember, while it is much easier to use these
                          replacements instead of capturing Tezcatlipoca for
                          Auto-Tetradefense, they are not necessarily the most

04) HP +30% (8)

07) Resist Magic +36% (7)
08) Auto-Bravery (7)
09) Auto-Faith (7)
10) First Strike (6)

Monster Materials to Use: All-Mana.

Crystarium Expansions---: +3 ATB. However, choosing +1 ATB, +2 Bonus Boosts 
                          instead is also viable if you prefer buff duration 
                          over ATB.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Imp Protectga, Vigilaga, Enfire, Enfrost,
                          Enthunder, and Enaero. Then teach it Boon by infusing
                          99 levels worth of SAB monsters into it.

Advantages--------------: Armed with 6 ATB and a wide array of offensive and
                          defensive buffs, Imp serves as an effective,
                          well-rounded SYN. Imp's incredible 105 casting speed
                          lets it quickly enhance the entire party, and its
                          high Magic, Boon, and red-locked passive ability,
                          Augment Maintenance II, ensures that its buffs have a
                          long duration. Its tiny size grants Imp amazing
                          maneuverability, meaning that it does not have to
                          waste time reorienting itself before casting spells.
                          It naturally halves magical and elemental damage,
                          which, combined with Protect, Shell, HP +30%, Resist
                          Physical +36%, and Resist Magic +36%, renders Imp
                          resilient against all sorts of attacks. While the
                          first hit of Imp's Feral Link, Giant Drop is
                          Strength-based, the second hit is Magic-based and
                          has a maximum Synch Rate of 350%, so it is suitable
                          for capturing monsters.

Disadvantages-----------: Because Imp lacks SYN Bonus Boost and has slightly
                          less Magic, its buffs will not last as long as those
                          cast by Purple Chocobo. It naturally learns Shell and
                          Shellga, so Imp cannot be used strictly as an
                          augment-focused SYN. Given its casting speed, though,
                          the time it spends casting defensive buffs is
                          minimal. It also possesses a glaring weakness to
                          physical attacks, which the majority of enemies can
                          use. However, this flaw can be mitigated by Protect
                          and Resist Physical +36%.

Alternatives:

Resilience +40% (8)-----: This bestows a 40% chance to resist all status
                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous
                          status ailments, Pain and Fog, are better mitigated
                          by Resist Pain +66% and Resist Fog +66%. The
                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense
                          against Daze working in conjunction with Resilience
                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The
                          remaining status ailments are not as dangerous in
                          post-game and can be quickly removed by items or SYN
                          buffs if necessary. As such, Resilience +40%'s value
                          for post-game content is diminished.

Auto-Vigilance (8)------: If you plan to use Imp solely for passing on
                          Auto-Buffs to the rest of the Paradigm Pack, you
                          could replace Auto-Tetradefense with Auto-Vigilance,
                          Auto-Protect, and Auto-Shell in order to extend their
                          durations for 30 seconds more. If you decide to do
                          this, consider replacing Resist Physical +36% and
                          Resist Magic +36% with Auto-Protect and Auto-Shell.
                          Remember, while it is much easier to use these
                          replacements instead of capturing Tezcatlipoca for

Monster Materials to Use: All-Mana.

Crystarium Expansion----: +1 ATB. However, choosing +1 Bonus Boost instead is
                          also viable if you prefer buff duration over ATB.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Miquitzli Protectga, Shellga, Faithga, Veilga,
                          Vigilaga, Enfire, and Enfrost. Then teach it Boon by
                          infusing 99 levels worth of SAB monsters into it.

Advantages--------------: As its appearance suggests, Miquiztli is a slow,
                          tank-like SYN with a myriad of offensive and
                          defensive buffs at its disposal, making it useful in
                          all sorts of situations. It naturally resist Wind
                          damage, and its red-locked passive ability, Augment
                          Maintenance II, gives a large boost to the duration
                          of all of Miquiztli's offensive buffs, which can be
                          further extended with Endless Blessings. Its Feral
                          Link, Terra Fantasy, is a life-saving technique that,
                          because it possesses the highest modifier of any
                          Feral Link in the game, gives Miquiztli the ability
                          to instantly recover over half of the entire party's
                          HP and removes status ailments, letting it function
                          as both SYN and MED, giving the Paradigm Pack more
                          versatility.

Disadvantages-----------: Due to its low maximum level, Miquiztli is limited
                          to only one Crystarium Expansion. Its Magic is much
                          lower than average, and it lacks SYN Bonus Boost, so
                          the length of Miquiztli's buffs isn't that
                          impressive, even with Augment Maintenance II. As it
                          naturally learns Protect and Veil, Miquiztli cannot
                          be used as an augment-focused SYN, meaning that, with
                          its low 70 casting speed, it wastes precious time
                          casting the less important defensive buffs before the
                          more useful offensive ones. In addition, Miquiztli
                          will, depending on the opponent, cast single-target
                          buffs over the multi-target variants, even in a -Wide
                          Paradigm. Its large girth prevents it from quickly
                          getting into position for buff casting, slowing
                          Miquiztli even further.

Alternatives:

Resist Elements +30% (9): Although Miquiztli lacks an elemental weakness, this
                          defensive passive ability may keep it safe from 
                          powerful elemental attacks, such as Typhon's
                          Fireball. If you find yourself frequently thwarted by
                          elemental attacks, try this.

Resilience +40% (8)-----: This bestows a 40% chance to resist all status
                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous
                          status ailments, Pain and Fog, are better mitigated
                          by Resist Pain +66% and Resist Fog +66%. The
                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense
                          against Daze working in conjunction with Resilience
                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The
                          remaining status ailments are not as dangerous in
                          post-game and can be quickly removed by items or SYN
                          buffs if necessary. As such, Resilience +40%'s value
                          for post-game content is diminished.

Auto-Vigilance (8)------: If you plan to use Miquiztli solely for passing on
                          Auto-Buffs to the rest of the Paradigm Pack, you
                          could replace Auto-Tetradefense with Auto-Vigilance,
                          Auto-Protect, and Auto-Shell in order to extend their
                          durations for 30 seconds more. If you decide to do
                          this, consider replacing Resist Physical +36% and
                          Resist Magic +36% with Auto-Protect and Auto-Shell.
                          Remember, while it is much easier to use these
                          replacements instead of capturing Tezcatlipoca for
                          Auto-Tetradefense, they are not necessarily the most
                          optimal options.

Auto-Protect (7)--------: See above.

Auto-Shell (7)----------: See above.

Resist Magic +36% (7)---: While Resist Physical +36% and Resist Magic +36% are
                          statistically superior to HP +30% and Resist Physical
                          +36% for preserving a higher HP percentage and
                          Adrenaline, post-game bosses and Coliseum opponents
                          telegraph their most powerful Magic-based attacks,
                          giving you plenty of time to prepare an adequate
                          defense. As such, HP +30% and Resist Physical +36%
                          should prove to be more useful in general, especially
                          against Gilgamesh. However, it is very practical to
                          remove one of Miquiztli's more situational passive
                          abilities, like Auto-Bravery, to make room for Resist
                          Magic +36% and completely maximize its defenses.

First Strike (6)--------: A passive ability that ensures Miquiztli has full ATB
                          to begin buffing as soon as a battle begins. However,
                          since it requires two passive ability slots to
                          enhance its Feral Link, Miquiztli does not have room
                          for this. Also, Miquiztli will likely be on the field
                          longer than usual because of its sluggishness, so
                          First Strike won't save that much time in the long
                          run.

Defense Maintenance (5)-: This passive ability extends the duration of Protect,
                          Protectga, Shell, Shellga, Veil, Veilga, and
                          Vigilaga. Since defensive buffs last longer than
                          augments, though, the extended duration may not be 
                          necessary for most battles.

Monster Materials to Use: All-Mana.

Crystarium Expansion----: +1 ATB. However, choosing +1 Bonus Boost instead is
                          also viable if you prefer buff duration over ATB.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Nanochu Faithga and Vigilaga. Then teach it
                          Boon by infusing 99 levels worth of SAB monsters into
                          it.

Special Notes-----------: Nanochu is one of two monsters that can transfer
                          Pack Mentality. Keep in mind that, because Pack
                          Mentality is a damage modifier, it is worthless to
                          Nanochu. If you plan to use Nanochu, remove Pack
                          Mentality and replace it with a more useful passive
                          ability.

Advantages--------------: Because it only learns Bravery, Bravega, Faith,
                          Vigilance and the four En- buffs, Nanochu is one of
                          the few strictly augment-oriented SYNs in the game
                          that can perform well in post-game. It possesses the
                          red-locked passive ability, Augment Maintenance II,
                          which, combined with Boon and Nanochu's fast 90
                          casting speed, allows it to apply long-lasting buffs
                          in a timely manner. Nanochu's small stature is also
                          an asset, as it can quickly face its target without
                          wasting time positioning itself. It's second
                          red-locked passive ability, Feral Surge, is not
                          hindered by the commonly-associated Feral Fatigue,
                          which means that Nanochu can receive a slew of buffs
                          the moment its Feral Link Gauge completely charges
                          without suffering any repercussions after using its
                          Feral Link.

Disadvantages-----------: Nanochu is restricted to only one Crystarium
                          Expansion, gaining more ATB for casting two
                          single-target buffs in a row at the expense of a 15%
                          increase in buff duration from SYN Bonus Boost. It
                          does not have SYN Bonus Boost, nor is its Magic
                          particularly impressive, so Nanochu's buffs will not
                          last as long compared to those cast by Top-Tier SYNs,
                          although Augment Maintenance II helps to compensate.
                          While Nanochu's Feral Link, Meteorite, has a maximum
                          Synch Rate of 300%, keep in mind that it is a
                          Strength-based attack. Because of its low Strength,
                          Nanochu is unsuitable for capturing monsters.

Alternatives:

Resist Elements +30% (9): Even though Nanochu lacks an elemental weakness, this
                          defensive passive ability may keep it safe from
                          powerful elemental attacks, such as Typhon's
                          Fireball. If you find yourself frequently thwarted by
                          elemental attacks, try this.

                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous

                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense

                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The

                          +36% for preserving a higher HP percentage and
                          Adrenaline, post-game bosses and Coliseum opponents
                          telegraph their most powerful Magic-based attacks,
                          giving you plenty of time to prepare an adequate
                          defense. As such, HP +30% and Resist Physical +36%
                          should prove to be more useful in general, especially
                          against Gilgamesh. However, it is very practical to

                          abilities, like Auto-Bravery or First Strike, to make
                          room for Resist Magic +36% and completely maximize
                          its defenses.

Defense Maintenance (5)-: This passive ability extends the duration of Protect,

                          necessary for most battles. Plus, Nanochu does not
                          learn any defensive passive abilities, nor should it
                          be infused with any, as it is an augment-oriented
                          SYN.

09) Auto-Faith (7)
10) Feral Speed II (6)

Monster Materials to Use: All-Mana.

Crystarium Expansions---: +2 ATB. However, choosing +2 Bonus Boosts instead is
                          also viable if you prefer buff duration over ATB.

Additional Abilities----: Teach Sahagin Prince Bravery, Vigilaga, Enfire,
                          Enfrost, Enthunder, and Enaero. Then teach it Boon by
                          infusing 99 levels worth of SAB monsters into it.

Advantages--------------: Unlike other SYNs, Sahagin Prince is not known for
                          long-lasting buffs, high Magic, or durability in
                          battle. It does, however, have a lightning-fast 130
                          casting speed, second only to Gigantuar's. While it
                          has poor Magic, it does have the red-locked passive
                          ability, Augment Maintenance, to somewhat make up for
                          it. It's second red-locked passive ability, Feral
                          Surge, is not hindered by the commonly-associated
                          Feral Fatigue, which means that Sahagin Prince can
                          receive a slew of buffs the moment its Feral Link
                          Gauge completely charges without suffering any
                          repercussions after using its Feral Link. What makes
                          Sahagin Prince of particular note is its Feral Link,
                          Abyssal Breath, which has a high debuff success rate.
                          Sahagin Prince's Abyssal Breath can be used against
                          opponents with high ailment resistances, like
                          Raspatil and Valfodr Lv. 70, as soon as they're
                          staggered, inflicting Wound damage, Deprotect,
                          Deshell, and, unlike Apkallu's Abyssal Breath,
                          Imperil in one move. This allows the party to focus
                          on maximizing the amount of damage inflicted on the
                          opponent without having to waste time sticking
                          debuffs. It also has a maximum Synch Rate of 350%, so
                          it is suitable for capturing monsters.

Disadvantages-----------: Sahagin Prince has low Magic, no SYN Bonus Boosts,
                          and the lesser Augment Maintenance, making it a poor
                          SYN in terms of buff duration. It naturally learns
                          Shell, so Sahagin Prince cannot be used strictly as
                          an augment-focused SYN. Given its casting speed,
                          though, the time it spends casting defensive buffs is
                          minimal. While it does not have any particular
                          weakness, Sahagin Prince has low HP, even with
                          HP +30%, and lacks natural defenses.

Alternatives:

Resist Elements +30% (9): Although Sahagin Prince lacks an elemental weakness,
                          it has low HP, so this defensive passive ability may
                          keep it safe from powerful elemental attacks, such as
                          Typhon's Fireball. If you find yourself frequently
                          thwarted by elemental attacks, try this.

Resilience +40% (8)-----: This bestows a 40% chance to resist all status
                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous
                          status ailments, Pain and Fog, are better mitigated
                          by Resist Pain +66% and Resist Fog +66%. The
                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense
                          against Daze working in conjunction with Resilience
                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The
                          remaining status ailments are not as dangerous in
                          post-game and can be quickly removed by items or SYN
                          buffs if necessary. As such, Resilience +40%'s value
                          for post-game content is diminished.

Auto-Vigilance (8)------: If you plan to use Sahagin Prince solely for passing
                          on Auto-Buffs to the rest of the Paradigm Pack, you
                          could replace Auto-Tetradefense with Auto-Vigilance,
                          Auto-Protect, and Auto-Shell in order to extend their
                          durations for 30 seconds more. If you decide to do
                          this, consider replacing Resist Physical +36% and
                          First Strike with Auto-Protect and Auto-Shell.
                          Remember, while it is much easier to use these
                          replacements instead of capturing Tezcatlipoca for
                          Auto-Tetradefense, they are not necessarily the most
                          optimal options.

Auto-Protect (7)--------: See above.

Auto-Shell (7)----------: See above.

Resist Magic +36% (7)---: While Resist Physical +36% and Resist Magic +36% are
                          statistically superior to HP +30% and Resist Physical
                          +36% for preserving a higher HP percentage and
                          Adrenaline, post-game bosses and Coliseum opponents
                          telegraph their most powerful Magic-based attacks,
                          giving you plenty of time to prepare an adequate
                          defense. As such, HP +30% and Resist Physical +36%
                          should prove to be more useful in general, especially
                          against Gilgamesh. However, it is very practical to
                          remove one of Sahagin Prince's more situational
                          passive abilities, like Auto-Bravery or First Strike,
                          to make room for Resist Magic +36% and completely
                          maximize its defenses.

First Strike (6)--------: A passive ability that ensures Sahagin Prince has
                          full ATB to begin buffing as soon as a battle begins.
                          However, since Sahagin Prince is normally used to
                          transfer its Auto-Buffs to the rest of the Paradigm
                          Pack at the start of a battle and for its En- buffs
                          and Feral Link in the middle of battle, it is not as
                          useful as it is on other SYNs.

Defense Maintenance (5)-: This passive ability extends the duration of Protect,
                          Protectga, Shell, Shellga, Veil, Veilga, and
                          Vigilaga. Since defensive buffs last longer than
                          augments, though, the extended duration may not be 
                          necessary for most battles.

Special Notes----------: Chichu can be found in a bed of red flowers in the
                         Plains of Eternity. You must use the Improved Moogle
                         Throw to throw Mog into the flowers. Chichu can be
                         farmed in unlimited quantities as a rare drop from
                         Valfodr Lv. 70 if you have purchased the "Perpetual
                         Battlefield" DLC.

                         Nanochu can be found by a tree on the ledge in the
                         southern portion of the Clearwater Marshes. You must
                         use the Improved Moogle Throw ability to throw Mog by
                         the tree, which is normally inaccessable. Nanochu can
                         be farmed in unlimited quantities as a normal drop
                         from Valfodr Lv. 70 if you have purchased the
                         "Perpetual Battlefield" DLC.

Note: When fully customizing a monster's passive abilities, it is not enough to
      merely identify which monster possesses the passive ability you want. You
      need to also consider the other passive abilities a monster learns. To
      rid yourself of unwanted passive abilities, you will need to manually
      remove them. For further details, visit Section 09 - Monster Infusion
      [HiddenU].

|~|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|~|

This section provides a "template" that can be applied to nearly all monsters,
organized by Role. Regardless of how good, bad, strong, weak, mainstream, or
underappreciated a monster may be, you will be able to apply these guidelines
to make the most of it. Keep in mind that these rules apply best to monsters
who serve a "normal" function. Monsters with special gimmicks sometimes merit
consideration of different passive abilities not listed below, such as Don
Tonberry and its Critical: Buff passive abilities.

As was the case with Section 12 - Top-Tier Builds [TTBuild], Section 13 - DLC
Builds [DLCBild], and Section 14 - Notable Monster Builds [NMBuild], the
passive abilities discussed below were objectively tiered by the GameFAQs
Final Fantasy XIII-2 message board's building community. Passive abilities are
divided into three tiers, with each tier having its own definition:

Primary Passive Abilities--: Mandatory on all monsters except for under very
                             specific circumstances.

Secondary Passive Abilities: Good in almost every situation, chosen based on
                             individual preferences.

Tertiary Passive Abilities-: Only good if extra passive ability slots are
                             available or under specific circumstances, chosen
                             based on individual preferences.

| Commandos |

...............................................................................

Monster Materials to Use: Focus on their primary attacking stat by using
                          All-Power or All-Mana Materials. Use the Monster
                          Growth Spreadsheets to discover when using Potent
                          Materials are just as beneficial as Power or Mana
                          Materials. If your COM has nearly equal Strength and
                          Magic and you plan on utilizing both (a rare and
                          often ill-advised choice), using All-Potent Materials
                          will likely strike the best balance.

Crystarium Expansions---: Choose to increase ATB segments for fast-attacking
                          COMs, like both of the Top-Tier COMs. Prioritize
                          Bonus Boosts for slow-attacking COMs, such as
                          Behemoth and Miniflan. COMs that use Blitz attacks
                          work best with 4 or 6 ATB, while COMs that use Area
                          Sweep or Ruinga benefit from 3 or 6 ATB.

Additional Abilities--- : There is no reason not to teach your COM every
                          infusable ability, as none of them have detrimental
                          effects on COM A.I. Jeopardize can be taught by
                          infusing 99 levels worth of RAV monsters into your
                          COM.

Primary Passive Abilities:

Strength +35% (7)-------: Every COM that utilizes Strength for physical attacks
                          should know this passive ability. If the COM in
                          question is proficient at both Strength and Magic,
                          add Magic +35%. However, infusing Magic +35% on a
                          strictly Strength-based COM serves little purpose and
                          wastes a passive ability slot.

Magic +35% (7)----------: Every COM that utilizes Magic for magic attacks
                          should know this passive ability. If the COM in
                          question is proficient at both Strength and Magic,
                          add Strength +35%. However, infusing Strength +35% on
                          a strictly Magic-based COM serves little purpose and
                          wastes a passive ability slot.

Role Resonance (7)------: Increases your COM's damage modifier by 20% when
                          using the Cerberus Paradigm. This boost is
                          significant, since the Cerberus Paradigm is the best
                          damage-dealing Paradigm available.

Siphon Boost II (6)-----: Multiplies the effects of Faultsiphon (recharges an
                          ATB segment by 0.2 if attacking an opponent afflicted
                          with a status ailment), Lifesiphon (recharges one ATB
                          segment if killing an opponent), Attack: ATB Charge,
                          Attack: ATB Charge II, and Kill: ATB Charge by 2. An
                          essential passive ability for any COM that uses
                          Attack: ATB Charge II, even more so because of a
                          COM's two good -siphon abilities.

Chain Bonus Boost II (6): This passive ability allows a COM to contribute more
                          to raising an opponent's Chain Gauge in both the 
                          pre-Stagger and post-Stagger phases. It can decrease
                          the length of boss battles and allows your COM to
                          greatly raise a post-Staggered opponent's Chain Gauge
                          without dedicating a lot of time to Ravager-heavy
                          Paradigms.

Attack: ATB Charge II (6: An essential passive ability that recharges 20% of
                          an ATB Gauge segment each time an opponent is
                          attacked, which helps your COM attack more often.

Secondary Passive Abilities:

HP +30% (8)-------------: If you only have one slot (or if you have excessive
                          slots) available for defensive passive abilities,
                          choose this, as it offers a 30% increase to your
                          COM's maximum HP, which aids in its survival and
                          keeps its HP over 70% for Adrenaline's damage boost.

Resist Physical +36% (7): If you have two slots available for defensive passive
                          abilities, use this in conjunction with HP +30%.
                          While Resist Physical +36% and Resist Magic +36% are
                          statistically superior to HP +30% and Resist Physical
                          +36% for preserving a higher HP percentage and
                          Adrenaline, post-game bosses and Coliseum opponents
                          telegraph their most powerful Magic-based attacks,
                          giving you plenty of time to prepare an adequate
                          defense. As such, HP +30% and Resist Physical +36%
                          should prove to be more useful in general, especially
                          against Gilgamesh. If you have three slots available
                          for defensive passive abilities, though, use HP +30%,
                          Resist Physical +36%, and Resist Magic +36%. Keep in
                          mind that if your COM naturally halves or resists 
                          physical or magic attacks, the effects of Resist
                          Physical +36% and Resist Magic +36% are reduced
                          accordingly. In the case that your COM only resists
                          physical attacks but not magic ones (or vice-versa),
                          you may wish to include only Resist Magic +36% (or 
                          Resist Physical +36%) in an attempt to maintain
                          balance.

Resist Magic +36% (7)---: See above.

Feral Speed II (6)------: COMs generally have strong, offensive Feral Links
                          that can be used to augment their offensive
                          capabilities. Analyze each COM on an individual basis
                          before infusing this passive ability, as some Feral
                          Links are better than others. Feral Links that
                          inflict high damage, hit multiple times, and have a
                          long duration are important to consider when judging
                          them. A Feral Link's length is especially important,
                          because an opponent's Stagger Gauge pauses during the
                          Feral Link animation, giving Serah and Noel the
                          opportunity to squeeze in additional attacks. Note
                          that the Party Leader will only attack during the
                          Feral Link if he or she was already doing so when the
                          Feral Link was activated. CPU-controlled party
                          members are not restricted, however. Another
                          important point to consider is that, even if the
                          Feral Link of a particular COM is relatively poor,
                          Feral Speed II on a COM on the battlefield increases
                          the recharge rates of the entire Paradigm Pack's
                          Feral Links. Since COMs are normally fielded for
                          extended periods of time, this passive ability could
                          prove useful for your other two monsters.

Tertiary Passive Abilities:

Resist Elements +30% (9): This passive ability is generally recommended if your
                          COM possesses an elemental weakness. It could also
                          be used as an additional source of defense if your
                          COM has passive ability slots to spare.

Resilience +40% (8)-----: This bestows a 40% chance to resist all status
                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous
                          status ailments, Pain and Fog, are better mitigated
                          by Resist Pain +66% and Resist Fog +66%. The
                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense
                          against Daze working in conjunction with Resilience
                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The
                          remaining status ailments are not as dangerous in
                          post-game and can be quickly removed by items or SYN
                          buffs if necessary. As such, Resilience +40%'s value
                          for post-game content is diminished.

Critical: Haste (8)-----: A potentially useful option for COMs with low HP,
                          like Cactuar. Since Haste is a buff cannot be cast by
                          SYNs, this passive ability might prove useful,
                          provided your COM has room available.

Auto-Bravery (7)--------: An excellent passive ability for Strength-based COMs
                          that are used at the start of battle for the express
                          purpose of dealing with random encounters as quickly
                          and efficiently as possible. It is NOT recommended
                          for boss battles, as you should not generally lead
                          with a COM.

Auto-Faith (7)----------: An excellent passive ability for Magic-based COMs
                          that are used at the start of battle for the express
                          purpose of dealing with random encounters as quickly
                          and efficiently as possible. It is NOT recommended
                          for boss battles, as you should not generally lead
                          with a COM.

Gilfinder II (6)--------: This passive ability can be used to farm gil from
                          Raspatil and, to a lesser degree, Yomi. It also
                          stacks with Durable Collector's Catalogs.

Item Collector (6)------: This passive ability can be used to farm rare items,
                          such as Yomi's Trapezohedron or Immortal's Romulus &
                          Remus. It does NOT stack with Durable Collector's
                          Catalogs.

Ally KO: Power Surge II-: This passive ability provides a large 130% boost to
                          Strength and Magic for each KO'd ally. While it is
                          highly situational, Ally KO: Power Surge II can be
                          of great use to COM Lightning, as it brings out her
                          potential to capitalize on Uncapped Damage.

Kill: ATB Charge (5)----: A very conditional passive ability that should only
                          be used for random encounters by COMs that lack
                          area-of-effect attacks, like Chichu and Cactuar. It
                          is NOT advisable for boss battles or on COMs that can
                          use Blitz, Area Sweep, or Ruinga.

Item Scavenger II (4)---: This passive ability can be used to farm common
                          items. It does NOT stack with Durable Collector's
                          Catalogs.

Pack Mentality (4)------: This passive ability provides an additive 30% damage
                          boost when every monster in your Paradigm Pack shares
                          the same Crystarium constellation. When all is said
                          and done, though, Pack Mentality only provides a
                          10-15% increase in damage because of how it is
                          combined with other damage modifiers. While it can 
                          only be infused twice without DLC, the "Perpetual
                          Battlefield" DLC provides this passive ability in
                          unlimited quantities.

| Ravagers |
+----------+
...............................................................................

Monster Materials to Use: The majority of RAVs use Magic, necessitating an
                          All-Mana build. Use the Monster Growth Spreadsheets
                          to discover when using Potent Materials are just
                          as beneficial as Mana Materials. For RAVs that rely
                          on -strike and Blitz abilities, consider using Power
                          Materials. If they are skilled at switching between
                          spells and -strikes, Potent Materials are better. Due
                          to chaining mechanics, RAVs are likely to alternate
                          between spells and -strikes if an opponent has an
                          elemental weakness, necessitating a balance.

Crystarium Expansions---: Choose to increase ATB segments for fast-attacking
                          RAVs, like Blue Chocobo and Lightning. Prioritize
                          Bonus Boosts for slow-attacking RAVs, such as Notsugo
                          and Pink Lily, as they will have an easier time
                          synchronizing their attacks in time with Paradigm
                          Shifts.

Additional Abilities----: Magic-based RAVs should learn every infusable spell.
                          Strength-based RAVs can avoid learning spells in
                          order to encourage physical attacks, but, if they
                          naturally learn a spell and incorporates it into
                          their attack chain, it would not hurt to make sure
                          that they cover all four elements. Teaching -ra or
                          -ga spells to such RAVs would encourage them to use
                          such attacks against staggered opponents (-ra spells)
                          or multiple targets (-ra and -ga spells), so be sure
                          to choose based on your needs. Vigor can be taught by
                          infusing 99 levels worth of COM monsters into your
                          RAV.

Primary Passive Abilities:

Strength +35% (7)-------: Every RAV that will reliably use -strike attacks in
                          succession should know this passive ability. For RAVs
                          that are likely to cast spells as often as they use
                          -strike attacks, consider infusing Magic +35%, too.

Magic +35% (7)----------: Every RAV that will reliably cast spells in
                          succession should know this passive ability. For RAVs
                          that are likely to use -strike attacks as often as
                          they cast spells, consider infusing Strength +35%,
                          too.

Siphon Boost II (6)-----: Multiplies the effects of Fearsiphon (recharges an
                          ATB segment by 0.1 if attacking a staggered
                          opponent), Attack: ATB Charge, Attack: ATB Charge II,
                          and Kill: ATB Charge by 2. An essential passive
                          ability for any RAV that uses Attack: ATB Charge II,
                          even more so for RAVs that continue to attack
                          post-Stagger.

Chain Bonus Boost II (6): As it is a RAV's primary duty to raise an opponent's
                          Chain Gauge, this passive ability allows a RAV to
                          raise it even more with each spell or -strike attack.

Attack: ATB Charge II (6: An essential passive ability that recharges 20% of
                          an ATB Gauge segment each time an opponent is
                          attacked, which helps your RAV attack and chain more
                          often.

Secondary Passive Abilities:

HP +30% (8)-------------: If you only have one slot (or if you have excessive
                          slots) available for defensive passive abilities,
                          choose this, as it offers a 30% increase to your
                          RAV's maximum HP, which aids in its survival and
                          keeps its HP over 70% for Vigor's chain-raising
                          boost.

Resist Physical +36% (7): If you have two slots available for defensive passive
                          abilities, use this in conjunction with HP +30%.
                          While Resist Physical +36% and Resist Magic +36% are
                          statistically superior to HP +30% and Resist Physical
                          +36% for preserving a higher HP percentage and
                          Adrenaline, post-game bosses and Coliseum opponents
                          telegraph their most powerful Magic-based attacks,
                          giving you plenty of time to prepare an adequate
                          defense. As such, HP +30% and Resist Physical +36%
                          should prove to be more useful in general, especially
                          against Gilgamesh. If you have three slots available
                          for defensive passive abilities, though, use HP +30%,
                          Resist Physical +36%, and Resist Magic +36%. Keep in
                          mind that if your RAV naturally halves or resists 
                          physical or magic attacks, the effects of Resist
                          Physical +36% and Resist Magic +36% are reduced
                          accordingly. In the case that your RAV only resists
                          physical attacks but not magic ones (or vice-versa),
                          you may wish to include only Resist Magic +36% (or 
                          Resist Physical +36%) in an attempt to maintain
                          balance.

Resist Magic +36% (7)---: See above.

Role Resonance (7)------: Increases your RAV's damage modifier by 20% when
                          using the Tri-Disaster Paradigm. While a RAV's
                          primary duty is to raise an opponent's Chain Gauge,
                          RAVs are still the second best at inflicting damage,
                          so this passive ability is a solid choice. However,
                          if you do not use the Tri-Disaster Paradigm, skip
                          Role Resonance.

Quick Stagger (7)-------: This passive ability allows for instantaneous
                          Staggering if your RAV attacks an opponent with 90%
                          of their Chain Gauge filled. Alone, Quick Stagger
                          saves valuable time and makes it easier to defeat
                          stubborn opponents, like Ispusteke. It is effective
                          to use this with Stagger Maintenance II, although it
                          is not necessary.

Feral Speed II (6)------: RAVs have versatile Feral Links. Some inflict damage,
                          while  some bestow buffs or debuff opponents. Analyze
                          each RAV on an individual basis before infusing this
                          passive ability, as some Feral Links are better than
                          others. Feral Links that inflict high damage, hit
                          multiple times, and have a long duration are
                          important to consider when judging them. A Feral
                          Link's length is especially important, because an
                          opponent's Stagger Gauge pauses during the Feral Link
                          animation, giving Serah and Noel the opportunity to
                          squeeze in additional attacks. Note that the Party
                          Leader will only attack during the Feral Link if he
                          or she was already doing so when the Feral Link was
                          activated. CPU-controlled party members are not
                          restricted, however. Another important point to
                          consider is that, even if the Feral Link of a
                          particular RAV is relatively poor, Feral Speed II on
                          a COM on the battlefield increases the recharge rates
                          of the entire Paradigm Pack's Feral Links. Since RAVs
                          are normally fielded for extended periods of time,
                          this passive ability could prove useful for your
                          other two monsters.

Tertiary Passive Abilities:

Resist Elements +30% (9): This passive ability is generally recommended if your
                          RAV possesses an elemental weakness. It could also
                          be used as an additional source of defense if your
                          RAV has passive ability slots to spare.

Resilience +40% (8)-----: This bestows a 40% chance to resist all status
                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous
                          status ailments, Pain and Fog, are better mitigated
                          by Resist Pain +66% and Resist Fog +66%. The
                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense
                          against Daze working in conjunction with Resilience
                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The
                          remaining status ailments are not as dangerous in
                          post-game and can be quickly removed by items or SYN
                          buffs if necessary. As such, Resilience +40%'s value
                          for post-game content is diminished.

Stagger Maintenance II--: If your RAV is the one to stagger an opponent,
                          Stagger Maintenance II ensures that it stays
                          staggered for 30% longer. This passive ability is
                          also synergetic with Quick Stagger, as it steers the
                          chances of your RAV being the one to stagger an
                          opponent in your favor. This passive ability must
                          be used with Quick Stagger if you want it to
                          activate with any amount of frequency. However, it is
                          often possible to reach the maximum Stagger duration
                          of 45 seconds without this passive ability at all,
                          and, as a result, Stagger Maintenance II serves more
                          as "duration insurance" instead. This can be
                          especially handy for unrelenting opponents like
                          Gilgamesh and Valfodr.

Pack Mentality (4)------: This passive ability provides an additive 30% damage
                          boost when every monster in your Paradigm Pack shares
                          the same Crystarium constellation. When all is said
                          and done, though, Pack Mentality only provides a
                          10-15% increase in damage because of how it is
                          combined with other damage modifiers. While it can 
                          only be infused twice without DLC, the "Perpetual
                          Battlefield" DLC provides this passive ability in
                          unlimited quantities.

...............................................................................

Monster Materials to Use: An All-Vitality build offers a SEN a larger HP pool
                          to support its role as a damage sponge. A higher
                          maximum HP equates to a smaller percentage of HP lost
                          from being attacked, which help COMs and RAVs
                          maintain Adrenaline and Vigor respectively. Potent or
                          Power Materials can be used for offensive SENs, like
                          those that specialize in counterattacks or have
                          powerful Feral Links.

Crystarium Expansions---: Prioritize Bonus Boosts to mitigate the damage your
                          SEN and the rest of the party take.

Additional Abilities----: SENs prioritize -guard abilities against post-game
                          bosses and Coliseum opponents. As such, Entrench and
                          Vendetta serve little use outside of offensive
                          builds. Still, infusing them does not interfere with
                          SEN A.I. in post-game. Repreive can be taught by
                          infusing 99 levels worth of MED monsters into your
                          SEN.

Primary Passive Abilities:

HP +30% (8)-------------: A 30% increase to your SEN's maximum HP enhances
                          its durability and is beneficial under almost every
                          circumstance. However, if you are trying to heal your
                          SEN with a MED, it will take more time to recover if
                          percentage-based Cure spells are used.

Resist Physical +36% (7): Since the primary purpose of a SEN is to reduce
                          damage, this passive ability, coupled with Resist
                          Magic +36% is very important, even on SENs that
                          naturally resist physical or magic attacks, as any
                          damage-reducing passive ability helps maintain HP
                          and reduces the time spent in healing Paradigms.

Resist Magic +36% (7)---: See above.

Improved Guard II (6)---: This passive ability enhances the effectiveness of
                          Mediguard and Steelguard by 16%, which helps SENs
                          reduce damage.

Improved Ward (5)-------: This passive ability enhances the effectiveness of
                          Deathward, and, more importantly, Fringeward by 08%.
                          Because Fringeward reduces area-of-effect damage to
                          the party, it is important for SEN functionality.

Secondary Passive Abilities:

Resist Elements +30% (9): This passive ability provides another layer of
                          protection for your SEN. Even though mosts SENs
                          possess natural elemental resistances, it can still
                          be used to mitigate damage from the likes of Typhon's
                          Fireball and Valfodr's -aga spells.

Resilience +40% (8)-----: This bestows a 40% chance to resist all status
                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous
                          status ailments, Pain and Fog, are better mitigated
                          by Resist Pain +66% and Resist Fog +66%. The
                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense
                          against Daze working in conjunction with Resilience
                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The
                          remaining status ailments are not as dangerous in
                          post-game and can be quickly removed by items or SYN
                          buffs if necessary. As such, Resilience +40%'s value
                          for post-game content is diminished. Still, SENs have
                          plenty of room for it, and it adds an additional
                          layer of coverage so that your SEN can resist both
                          damage and status ailments.

Feral Speed II (6)------: This can prove useful if your SEN stays out on the
                          field for an extended period of time to defend your
                          party, since Feral Speed II increases the recharge
                          rates of the entire Paradigm Pack's Feral Links. It
                          is especially important for some offensive SENs, as
                          many rely on their Feral Links for their primary
                          means of attacking.

Tertiary Passive Abilities:

Auto-Haste (9)----------: For the most part, SENs do not usually start battles.
                          However, some Coliseum opponents, like Gilgamesh and
                          Valfodr necessitate a SEN's presence at almost all
                          times. In such situations, a SEN with Auto-Haste can
                          pass its benefits on to the rest of the Paradigm Pack
                          for as long as its Haste lasts.

Critical: Haste (8)-----: While bestowing Haste to the Paradigm Pack by any
                          means seems like a wise idea, the times when a SEN
                          reaches critical condition to make use of Critical:
                          Haste will be rare. In such situations, though,
                          Haste's benefits will likely be appreciated.

Critical: Tetradefense(8: While bestowing Protect, Shell, Veil, and Vigilance
                          by any means seems like a wise idea,  the times when
                          a SEN reaches critical condition to make use of
                          Critical: Tetradefense will be rare. Even if such
                          a situation does arise, it would generally mean that
                          your SEN is in a battle where you should be applying
                          said buffs through SYNs or Feral Links anyway.

Rapid Recovery (8)------: This passive ability reduces the duration of status
                          ailments by 25%. This sounds more useful than it is
                          in practice, however. Usually, a status ailment can
                          either be ignored or it needs to be immediately
                          removed by items or Esuna. Neither of these
                          situations benefit from Rapid Recovery. Only use
                          this passive ability if your SEN cannot benefit from
                          any of the other suggested passive abilities.

Strength +35% (7)-------: Boosting a SEN's Strength can prove useful for
                          increasing Feral Link and counterattack damage. Note
                          that some counterattacks, such as those performed by
                          all Armadillon SENs, are Magic-based. If you are not
                          trying to build an offensive SEN, do not use this
                          passive ability to enhance Entrench and Vendetta, as
                          SEN A.I. will never use counterattacks against the
                          more difficult post-game bosses and Coliseum
                          opponents.

Magic +35% (7)----------: See above.

Role Resonance (7)------: Use this on SENs with powerful Feral Links. This
                          allows you to defend yourself in the Tortoise
                          Paradigm, block powerful attacks, and then retaliate
                          by unleashing an enhanced Feral Link attack. Note
                          that Role Resonance is not suggested for use with
                          counterattacks, as it is impractical to stay in the
                          Tortoise Paradigm long enough to see Entrench or
                          Vendetta.

Critical: Shield II (6)-: Unlike Critical: Buff passive abilities, you do not
                          need to reach critical condition with your SEN to
                          reap Critical: Shield II's benefits. Any SEN can
                          benefit from this passive ability's damage reduction,
                          so long as its HP remains in critical condition.

Improved Counter II (6)-: This passive ability boosts the effectiveness of
                          counterattack abilities by 80%. Unfortunately,
                          post-game bosses and Coliseum opponents that might
                          benefit from an offensive SEN force SENs to only
                          use defensive abilities, like Steelguard, instead.
                          However, an offensive, counterattack SEN may prove
                          useful for random encounters.

Monster Materials to Use: Focus on Magic by using All-Mana Materials. Magic
                          increases buff durations by roughly 1 second for
                          every 100 Magic. Use the Monster Growth Spreadsheets
                          to discover when using Potent Materials are just as
                          beneficial as Mana Materials.

Crystarium Expansions---: Expansion choices are dependent on the desired
                          purpose of your SYN. If you want your SYN to cast
                          two -ga spells in a row, increase your SYN's ATB to
                          6 if possible. If you prefer a mixture of -ga spells
                          and single-target spells, 5 ATB is considered
                          optimum. If building a SYN geared toward
                          single-target spells, decide between 6 ATB (for
                          faster spell casting) or 4 ATB, devoting any
                          remaining Crystarium Expansions to Bonus Boosts to
                          enhance buff duration.

Additional Abilities----: Additional abilities are dependent on the desired
                          purpose of your SYN. A SYN that knows ever infusable
                          buff is not necessarily the best SYN for every
                          situation. Generally, the most important buffs that a
                          SYN should know are Bravery, Faith, Enfire, Enfrost,
                          Enthunder, and Enaero. Bravega and Faithga can speed
                          up the buffing process at the expense of duration.
                          Vigilance and Vigilaga are also important, although
                          keep in mind that Vigilance is classified as an
                          augmentation, while Vigilaga is classified as a
                          defensive buff. Protect, Shell, and Veil are normally
                          viewed in a poor light for most post-game bosses and
                          Coliseum battles, although Gilgamesh and Valfodr
                          warrant their uses. If you do want your SYN to cast
                          Protect, Shell, and Veil, consider infusing only
                          the -ga variants to reduce time. Boon can be taught
                          by infusing 99 levels worth of SAB monsters into your
                          SYN.

Primary Passive Abilities:

Auto-Haste (9)----------: SYNs should be the first monsters deployed at the
                          the beginning of post-game boss and Coliseum battles.
                          As such, SYNs benefit from Auto-Buff passive
                          abilities more than any other Role in the game.
                          Auto-Haste is particularly important, since it cannot
                          be cast by SYNs. Auto-Haste's benefit can also be
                          passed along to the rest of the Paradigm Pack for as
                          long as its Haste lasts.

Magic +35% (7)----------: Every SYN should know this passive ability, because
                          Magic increases buff duration.

Auto-Faith (7)----------: Auto-Faith increases buff duration by multiplying
                          a SYNs Magic by 1.75. Auto-Faith's benefit can also
                          be passed along to the rest of the Paradigm Pack for
                          as long as its Faith lasts.

Secondary Passive Abilities:

Auto-Tetradefense (9)---: This passive ability combines the advantages of
                          Auto-Protect, Auto-Shell, Auto-Vigilance and
                          Auto-Veil into one, saving your SYN precious passive
                          ability slots for the likes of HP +30%, Resist
                          Physical +36% and Resist Magic +36%. For SYNs with
                          multiple Red Locks, Auto-Tetradefense may be the only
                          way to include the defensive Auto-Buffs, given their
                          limited space. However, it is important to note that
                          Auto-Tetradefense only lasts for 30 seconds, while
                          individual Auto-Buffs last for twice as long. In
                          addition, Auto-Tetradefense can only be obtained from
                          Tezcatlipoca, although it also comes with Resist
                          Physical +36% and Resist Magic +36%, too.

HP +30% (8)-------------: If you have only one slot (or if you have excessive
                          slots) available for defensive passive abilities,
                          choose this, as it offers a 30% increase to your
                          SYN's maximum HP, which aids in its survival.

Auto-Vigilance (8)------: This passive ability serves offensive and defensive
                          purposes, as it reduces Wound damage and increases
                          the Cut and Keep values of its target, which helps
                          prevent interruptions. Since a SYN's primary purpose
                          is to bestow buffs as quickly as possible, preventing
                          it from being interrupted is crucial. Note that
                          Auto-Tetradefense can offer the same advantages at
                          half the duration. Auto-Vigilance's benefits can also
                          be passed along to the rest of the Paradigm Pack for
                          as long as its Vigilance lasts.

Resist Physical +36% (7): If you have two slots available for defensive passive
                          abilities, use this in conjunction with HP +30%.
                          While Resist Physical +36% and Resist Magic +36% are
                          statistically superior to HP +30% and Resist Physical
                          +36% for preserving a higher HP percentage and
                          Adrenaline, post-game bosses and Coliseum opponents
                          telegraph their most powerful Magic-based attacks,
                          giving you plenty of time to prepare an adequate
                          defense. As such, HP +30% and Resist Physical +36%
                          should prove to be more useful in general, especially
                          against Gilgamesh. If you have three slots available
                          for defensive passive abilities, though, use HP +30%,
                          Resist Physical +36%, and Resist Magic +36%. Keep in
                          mind that if your SYN naturally halves or resists 
                          physical or magic attacks, the effects of Resist
                          Physical +36% and Resist Magic +36% are reduced
                          accordingly. In the case that your SYN only resists
                          physical attacks but not magic ones (or vice-versa),
                          you may wish to include only Resist Magic +36% (or 
                          Resist Physical +36%) in an attempt to maintain
                          balance. These defensive passive abilities can also
                          be used in conjunction with Auto-Tetradefense for
                          maximum protection.

Resist Magic +36% (7)---: See above.

Auto-Bravery (7)--------: While Bravery offers no particular advantage to SYNs,
                          It is one of the most important buffs in the game.
                          SYNs normally prioritize defensive buffs before
                          offensive ones, so it takes time before Bravery is
                          cast. Auto-Bravery can expedite the process. Its
                          benefits can also be passed along to the rest of the
                          Paradigm Pack for as long as its Bravery lasts.

Auto-Protect (7)--------: This passive ability, coupled with Auto-Shell, allows
                          augment-focused SYNs the defensive passive abilities
                          that they would normally be unable to cast
                          themselves. For SYNs that only know the single-target
                          Protect and Shell spells, these passive abilities
                          help hasten their buffing process, as they will not
                          have to spend time casting Protect and Shell on
                          themselves, cutting wasted time by 33%. Note that
                          Auto-Tetradefense can offer the same advantages at
                          half the duration. Auto-Protect and Auto-Shell's
                          benefits can also be passed on to the rest of the
                          Paradigm Pack for as long as Protect and Shell last.

Auto-Shell (7)----------: See above.

First Strike (6)--------: The faster that SYNs can bestow buffs, the faster
                          the party can benefit from them. First Strike fully
                          charges a SYN's ATB Gauge prior to battle, saving
                          time and giving Serah and Noel the opportunity to
                          focus on other responsibilities at the beginning of
                          a battle. This passive ability is especially
                          important for SYNs who rely solely on Auto-Buffs, as
                          they may have the chance to cast a buff or two on
                          the party before you have the chance to switch them
                          out. However, some SYNs require time to position
                          themselves before casting, negating the advantages of
                          First Strike altogether. Observe your SYN's behavior
                          under different circumstances to see how well First
                          Strike would help it.

Feral Speed II (6)------: While SYNs do not spend as much time in combat as
                          COMs or RAVs, Feral Speed II still helps recharge
                          the Feral Link Gauges of the rest of the Paradigm
                          Pack. Consider this passive ability, especially if
                          your SYN has a particularly useful Feral Link.

Tertiary Passive Abilities:

Resist Elements +30% (9): This passive ability is generally recommended if your
                          SYN possesses an elemental weakness. It could also
                          be used as an additional source of defense if your
                          SYN has passive ability slots to spare.

Resilience +40% (8)-----: This bestows a 40% chance to resist all status
                          ailments. However, two of the three most dangerous
                          status ailments, Pain and Fog, are better mitigated
                          by Resist Pain +66% and Resist Fog +66%. The
                          third, Daze, requires Veil support and innate defense
                          against Daze working in conjunction with Resilience
                          +40% to provide reliable Daze resistance. The
                          remaining status ailments are not as dangerous in
                          post-game and can be quickly removed by items or SYN
                          buffs if necessary. As such, Resilience +40%'s value
                          for post-game content is diminished.

Auto-Veil (7)-----------: While this passive ability could round out the
                          moveset of any SYN with Auto-Protect, Auto-Shell, and
                          Auto-Vigilance, it is generally considered the least
                          important buff available. Note that Auto-Tetradefense
                          can offer the same advantages at half the duration.
                          Auto-Veil's benefits can also be passed along to the
                          rest of the Paradigm Pack for as long as its Veil
                          lasts.

Defense Maintenance (5)-: This passive ability increases the duration of 
                          defensive buffs (Protect, Protectga, Shell, Shellga,
                          Veil, Veilga, and Vigilaga) by 40%. While its
                          benefits may seem significant, defensive buffs have
                          naturally respectable durations, so, depending on the
                          situation, it might not be necessary to extend them
                          further. Note that Defense Maintenance only affects
                          defensive buffs that are cast by your SYN - it does
                          not increase the duration of defensive Auto-Buffs.
