|Kicks up a cloud of dirt with their hind legs.|
Call to Arms
|Calls two Wererats into battle.|
Doomrats are first encountered during the Rat Problem Odd Job in Chapter 3. In this chapter, Cloud and Tifa will be available for battle.

Weapon: Iron Blade
Armor: Iron Bangle

Occassionally use Triple Slash to slowly deal damage to all Doomrats. Cast Cure if needed.

Spam Blizzard to exploit their weakness for an easier fight. Chakra is for when Tifa needs healing but Cloud does not have sufficient ATB charges or MP.
|Phase Point Summary|
|1||Doomrats will run around quickly and frequently use Dust Cloud. A Doomrat will try to call more Doomrats if left alone.|
Initially, there will be 3 Doomrats in the field but more will come if you let a lone Doomrat use Call to Arms. Either way, focus on defeating one Doomrat at a time.
Doomrats are weak to Ice-elemental attacks. The problem is they are really quick, and Blizzard requires a few seconds before it actually causes significant damage. Because of this, only use Blizzard when they are staggered or pressured. You can use other spells like Fire or Aero until then.
Using Triple Slash helps a lot on passively defeating the other Doomrats as you are focusing on one. Remember not to use up every ATB charge you accumulate for Triple Slash and save some for healing.
