Cloud narrowly avoiding one of Motor Ball's electric bombs.
When you're hugging the sides of the road, it will make a scraping noise, but Cloud actually won't take any damage. This position can be advantageous for avoiding attacks, so stay close to the side when traps appear on the road.
This Truck will spray you with gunfire out from one of its windows. When you're being targeted, move to the opposite window. Again, don't be afraid to hug the walls to dodge the bullets.
The party members who will join you during the battle against Sephiroth will be determined by a point system based on how they perform against the Whispers.
|Using an Ability, Spell, or Item||24||20||44|
|Using a Limit Break||120||100||220|
|Reducing any Whisper's HP to 0 and Staggering them||120||100||220|
|Finishing off Whisper Bahamut or Whisper Harbinger||-||250||550|
|Where he Appears||Weaknesses|
This is a very pattern-based fight, and once you've memorized Motor Ball's patterns, it's easy enough.
|Where he Appears||Weaknesses|
|End of the Road||None|
The main rule of this fight is, ignore the big guy. Whisper Harbinger himself won't do much and he can't be hurt until the very end of the fight, even when Staggered. The key is to keep wailing on the smaller Whispers, and when you Stagger them, Whisper Harbinger will start taking damage, so aim to Stagger the smaller Whispers as much as possible to end this fight quickly.
|Where he Appears||Weaknesses|
|End of the Road||None|
Compared to other boss fights, Sephiroth really isn't the hardest in the game. He mostly uses melee attacks, so use the Punisher Mode counter and Twin Stinger's Counterstance Ability to deal damage back to him when he hits you.
During the second and third phases of the fight, he'll often target one of your characters and attack them relentlessly. When this happens, switch characters and attack him with the other character with no repercussions.
