Monsters of Legend Battle Guide

Battle #1

Vs. Monsters of Legend #1

Bomb ×1

Fire Combined with Elemental Makes the Fight Easier

Fighting Bomb
If you have a Fire materia combined with Elemental Lv.2 in your armor slots, you will become resistant to all fire attacks. This will allow you to get up close and deal damage without worrying about Bomb's attacks. Make sure to save your ATB to do your high damaging abilities when it does an attack to stagger it more easily.

Battle #2

Vs. Monsters of Legend #2

Tonberry ×1

Subversion Combined with Warding to Counter Insta-Death

Fighting Tonberry
Tonberry has 3 insta-death moves, Subversion combined with Warding Lv.3 will make those moves useless against the character equipped. Just having one on Aerith will make sure that there is someone always ready to cast Raise.

Revive on Each Party Member is a Must

Reviving Cloud
Thonberry has multiple insta-kill moves. This can put you into situations where at least of your party members will be downed. It is important to have revive on each member to make sure at least one can cast Raise before everyone is taken out.

Battle #3

Vs. Monsters of Legend #3

Type-0 Behemoth ×1

Cripple the Lower and Upper Body

Staggering Type-0 Behemoth
It is best to try to focus on its Lower and Upper body. After you cripple both of them, the Type-0 Behemoth will go into stagger, this is the moment to strike with your hard hitting moves!

Cast Barrier for Type-0 Behemoth Physical Attacks

Having Barrier cast on your party will let you reduce a lot of the incoming damage in this fight as Type-0 Behemoth move set is mostly physical attacks.

Break It's Horns After Staggering

Borken Horns
With its horns still intact, casting offensive spells will be me with Counter Flare. Its horns are also invlunlerable when not staggered. Focus on the horns after staggering and if you get to break it, you will be able cast spells against the Behemoth for the rest of the battle!

Battle #4

Vs. Monsters of Legend #4

Bomb ×1
Thonberry ×1

Focus the Bomb then Thonberry

Fighting Bomb and Thonberry
The Thonberry is slow to move and will generally not use its long range attacks if ignored. Use this to your advantage by quickly taking out the Bomb to focus on the Thonberry next!

Battle #5

Vs. Monsters of Legend #5

Malboro ×1

Keep Cloud Behind Malboro

Fighting Malboro
Malboro is slow and can only attack from its front. When it uses Bad Breath, get Cloud or whoever melee attacker you have behing it and attack from there. Make sure to get your ranged attackers to cast spells on its mouth to help stagger it!

Having Cleansing Materia Lv.2 is Recommended

Malboro's Bad Breath attack can apply multiple status effects. Esuna can get rid of all those status effects with just one cast!

    • 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

    • >>[347]
      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!
