Don't focus too much on magic

The Diabolic Creation is weak to Ice, but it's arm is immune to magic damage. You want to have a lot of physical damage to make sure you cripple its arm to stagger it then throw the Ice magic at it. A balance of magic and physical damage is recommended for this fight.

Defeat the Diabolic Creation

Defeat the Diabolical Creation.jpg
The Projector is surrounded by an unbreakable barrier that won’t disappear unless you defeat the Diabolic Creation it is projecting. The Diabolic Creation is an enemy you will have to deal with, it acts as the Projector's bodyguard and will be continuously summoned until the Projector is defeated.

Focus on the Diabolic Creation's Arm

Target Diabolical Creation Arm.jpg
To defeat the Diabolic Creation as soon as possible you will want to focus down its right arm. Once crippled, it will be more susceptible to staggering! Beside's its arm, the Diabolic Creation is weak to the Ice element. You will want to use physical attacks on its arm then switch to ice attacks once it is crippled! Synergize with Sonon and break its arm in a flash!

Bring Antidote

Use Antidotes.jpg
You might want to bring a lot of antidotes when fighting the Projector. The Diabolic Creation has an impossible to avoid poison attack so you'll be taking a lot of damage from poison without antidotes.
Antidote Location and Effects

Throw everything at the Projector

Once you do take out the shield of the project, throw everything you got at it! If you don't destroy it while it is staggered it will recover its shield and summon the Diabolic Creation again. If you can deal enough damage you will only have to fight the Diabolic Creation once, so save up some ATB right before you beat the Diabolic Creation and use it all up on the Projector!

Scarlet & The Crimson Mare Attack Phases

Diabolical Creation

Tentacle Slam

Tentacle Slam.jpg
The Diabolical Creation raises and slams its right tentacle arm in front of it. Deals pretty good damage but has a long wind-up time when it's raised, giving you time to react.

Ensnare

Ensnare.jpg
The Diabolical Creation disappears then reappears and grabs its target. The attack is unblockable and fairly quick so it is tough to avoid. The upside is that this attack doesn’t deal too much damage. You can avoid this attack by running away whenever you see it disappear.

Tentacle Drill

Tentacle Drill.jpg
The Diabolical Creation shoves its tentacles into the ground and resurfaces below its target. It is a fast and hard-to-see attack. Hold block when you see the name of the ability come up.

Poison Shroud

Poison Shroud.jpg
The Diabolical Creation shrouds itself in a poison veil. Try not to attack close-range or you will be poisoned for sure.

Tentacle Reconstruction

Tentacle Reconstruction.jpg
If you destroy the Diabolical Creation’s right arm, it will regenerate it with this move after it recovers from its pressured or staggered state.

Firaga

Firaga.jpg
It fires a Firaga spell at the target. It can deal a lot of damage and tough to avoid. If its target is Yuffie, use the Booomerang ability Brumal Form.

Projector

Shield Deployment

Shield Deployment.jpg
After recovering from its staggered state, the Projector is going to activate another shield. No attacks can touch the Projector until this shield is broken.

Projection Sequence

The projector summons a Diabolical Creation to protect it. Defeating the Diabolical Creation is the only way to break the Projector's barrier and put it into a staggered state.

Not Much Different from Normal

The attacks used by the Diabolic Creation on Hard Mode are the same as on Normal. This means you can follow the same strategies as Normal mode, though you may have to defeat it a few times to get rid of the Projector for good.

Your Remaining MP is the Biggest Challenge

As you'll have fought a few bosses and a gauntlet of enemies up to this point, depending on how you used your magic in previous fights your MP might be on the lower side with no way to recover it. Take advantage of Chakra or Prayer to heal and save MP for when you're in a pinch. Yuffie's Boomerang also has an increased MP regen rate that can be useful.
