Recommended Characters

You'll be focusing on hitting repeatedly to raise the Trypapolis' Focus Gauges. Tifa is a great choice because she has a high damage per second rate, and her Abilities work well to fill up Focus Gauges and Stagger them.

Tips & Strategies for Beating Trypapolis

Strategy Checklist
(Click to jump)

Focus on one at a time to Stagger it


In a three-on-three match, it can be tempting to divide up your time among the three enemies, but be sure to focus on hitting each one at a time, without spreading your damage output too thin. As Trypapolis is resistant to both Physical and Magic attacks, you'll want to focus on Staggering by hitting one with a flurry of attacks. Staggering will provide the damage and ATB boost needed to finish the job, so try taking them down one by one.

Focus Gauge and How to Stagger Enemies

Attack Them While They're Dancing


When they start dancing go after them! Attacking them during this ability will cause them to split in two, producing a Proto Trypapolis. While this may increase the number of enemies on the field, the Proto Trypapolis are not only weaker and have less HP, taking them down will reduce the Trypapolis it split from's HP by 30%! As the Trypapolis has high physical defense and doesn't stay staggered for long, this is one of the best ways to take care of them.

Watch out for Screech


The Trypapolis love to use Screech, a ranged attack that will leave your party members anywhere close paralyzed. As soon as you see the Screech Ability name, stop attacking and start blocking! You can block this attack to prevent its Paralyzing effect, and as it doesn't deal much damage, you'll be ready to deliver the next blow right away.

Use Poison to deal consistent damage


As Trypapolis takes reduced damage from both Physical and Magic attacks, finding other methods to deal damage to it can be helpful. Poison, which is not affected by Magic resistance, is a great way to deal consistent damage to Trypapolis throughout the battle.

How to Get the Poison Materia

Inflict Silence to block Aeroga


Aeroga is Trypapolis's most powerful attack, dealing 600-700 damage with each hit. If it's causing repeated damage to your party, hit it with Silence to completely block it from using Aeroga. As Trypapolis's other attacks don't have a high damage output, this should prepare you to hold strong if you're expecting a long fight.

Killing a proto significantly decreases the hp of the original, plus they are easy to kill. The quickest way to kill them is by getting them to divide as much as possible then taking out the protos. Also junction wind elemental to armor, and dodge screech if possible, if hit by it switch character
