Crystalcap Mountain Monsters

Bravely Default 2 - Crystalcap Monster Battle
Most of the monsters found in the Crystal Cap Mountain in Enderno are powerful in their own right.

These enemies include Sleipnir, which uses Acid Breath which reduces Magic Defense and Physical Defense by 15%. Triffid has the Tempest ability, a powerful attack that hits all enemies. Lastly, Lapislion uses a powerful Dark elemental magic called Doomsday.

All of these enemies can be found as early as Chapter 3.

Chapter 5


Bravely Default II - Ench-ant-er
Before facing the Story Boss found in the Wind Room in Chapter 5, capture some Ench-ant-ers in Holograd first.

These monsters cast Tornado, a powerful Wind elemental magic attack. Having a party member use this, along with a Red Mage, can help make the battle easy as the boss never counters magic attacks.

Ench-ant-er Location and Drops


Bravely Default II - Antiphates
The last Story Boss in Chapter 5 is susceptible to Contagion and the Antiphates's Sickly Spittle has a chance to inflict the said status ailment when used.

Chapter 6


Bravely Default II - Kobold
The secret boss in Chapter 6 can generate BP when getting attacked and may knock out your entire party if he braves three times.

To combat this, capture some Kobolds at the Treetop Tower in Wiswald. These monsters use the Brave Robber ability, which lets you steal 1 BP from a target and add it to yours.

Kobold Location and Drops


Bravely Default II - Rafflesia
One Quest Boss in Chapter 6 is weak to Dark and if you don't have an Arcanist on your party, capturing some Rafflesias can make the battle a bit easier.

Chapter 7

Siamese Cait

Bravely Default II - Siamese Cait
Most of the enemies found in the Isle of Nothingness are weak to light and having some captured Siamese Caits may come in handy when dealing with them.

Siamese Cait Location and Drops


Bravely Default II - Sizzlemoth
One particular boss in the Hall of Tribulation is susceptible to the Charm status ailment. If you don't have ingredients to create a Charm Bomb, capturing some Sizzlemoths is an alternative.

I feel like the skeletal sellsword should be included in the chapter 2 monsters, because the ability to deal half of any bosses hp can really help with some of them. If I can add it myself, I'm going to figure out how, but otherwise I thought I should mention it
