List of Contents
A variant of the wererat, larger and more intelligent than its genetic relative. These creatures do not fear humans, and will seek revenge on those who harm their vermin brethren.
Inflicting a certain amount of damage makes them susceptible to staggering.

|Jumps at a target and bites them.|
|Tackles a target and binds them for 15 seconds while biting them. If its HP drops by 10% or they are hit by an ability they will release the target.|
|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.
|Cloud||Role: Attacker & Healer
Weapon: Iron Blade
Armor: Iron Bangle
Accessory: Power Wristguards
Weapon: Leather Gloves
Armor: Star Bracelet
Accessory: Power Wristguards
|Weapon (3 Slots)|
|Armor (1 Slot)|
Occassionally use Triple Slash to slowly deal damage to all Doomrats. Cast Cure if needed.
|Weapon (2 Slots)|

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.

Need the next part of this game, I am so sad.
If you complete the game and go to Chapter 17 with Chapter Select, you will be able to find Chadley near the start of the chapter and access all the VR missions with any three characters of your choice. Hope this helps!
