This is a guide to beating the Boss Trypapolis in the game Final Fantasy 7 Remake (FF7R). This article explains Trypapolis's attack patterns, weaknesses, and tips and strategies for defeating them.
List of Contents
A subspecies of the varghidpolis that was created in experiments that violated every precept of bioethics. They can multiply by simple fission.
If their attacks are interrupted while they are dancing, they clone themselves. Defeat the clone first to deal with the original effectively.

|Crouches down and shoots 5 needles from its tail.|
Stun (5 sec)
|Lets out a terrifying scream for 2 seconds that stuns those in range.|
|Casts Aeroga on a target.|
|Starts to dance, covering itself in a pink aura. Will split into a Proto Trypapolis if enough damage is dealt before it finishes dancing.|
As Trypapolis is fought in Chapter 14, Aerith will be missing from your party.
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.
|Phase Point Summary|
|1||You will fight with three Trypapolis in a flat and wide area. They'll each use all of their available Abilities on you, and if you attack one while it is Dancing, it will duplicate and create a new Proto Trypapolis.|
|★ Strategy Checklist ★
(Click to jump)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Receieved self detruct enemy skill
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

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!
