|Hedgehog Pie King|
The leader of a hedgehog pie pack. The self-styled king wears a toy crown it picked up in the slums. It attacks by charging into foes with the spines on its back, and by casting spells.
Inflicting a certain amount of damage makes it susceptible to staggering. It enhances either itself or its comrades during battle, so target whoever is not currently affected by its powers.

Cloud is mostly a support in this fight. Have him cast Barrier on Aerith and heal her if needed. Consume extra ATB charges for Triple Slash to deal damage to all three enemies.

Since all three Hedgehog Pies are weak to Ice, use Arcane Ward on Aerith and while she is on it, cast Blizzard (or better) to the Hedgehog Pie without the buff from Protection.
|1||Hedgehog Pie King will be accompanied by two Hedgehog Pies which often casts Fira.|
|2||It will cast Protection on one of them randomly while using its other abilities to attack.|
All of them are weak to Ice and are not that nimble. Spam Ice-elemental attacks like Blizzard to deal more damage to them. Also make use of Aerith's Arcane Ward to cast an attack spell twice while still consuming 1 ATB bar.
Hedgehog Pie with Barrier and Manaward buffs from Protection
Hedgehog Pie King will occasionally cast Protection on one of them which increases both Defense and Magic Defense. During this time, focus on dealing damage to the Hedgehog Pie not buffed with Protection to avoid wasting attacks, ATB charges, and MP.
The Hedgehog Pies' Bounce attack hits multiple times. If you used auto-counter against it, Cloud will only be able to block the first hit while being open for the next hits. Also, since they will bounce above Cloud, the counterattack will not hit the Hedgehog Pie so you are better off guarding against it.

The gameplay isn't enough to scoff at either, even without talking about the story, I would say that this is one of the best games on the PS4
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!
