Yuffie & Sonon Vs. Shinra's Dark Secrets Battle Guide

Battle #1

Security Officer ×3
Riot Trooper ×3
Elite Grenadier ×1

Weak to fire

All of the enemies in this fight are weak to fire. You can start the fight by throwing Yuffie's Shuriken then using Windstorm to hit multiple of them at once and finish them off with Fire spells.

Battle #2

Helitrooper ×1
Deepground SOLDIER ×2

Focus on Helitrooper first

The Deepground SOLDIERs can be annoying to fight with their invisibility, take out the Helitrooper first. An easy way of dealing with him is by throwing ur shuriken at him then using Windstorm while it's on him, this should hit him and pressure him for you to finish off.

Synergize against Deepground SOLDIER

For the Deepground SOLDIERs, use synergized abilities whenever they go out of invisibility to make quick work of them.

Battle #3

3-C SOLDIER Operator ×3

Use synergy abilities whenever you can

3-C SOLDIERs are pretty tough, synergize and focus on one at a time. Use Synergize abilities as much as you can, using Ninja Cannonball to help fill Sonon's ATB bar. Each SOLDIER should go down with 1-2 synergized ability.
