Baku Boss Battle Guide


FF9 Baku 2nd Fight
Baku is fighting seriously (?) this time. You will also fight him alone so using your potions to keep your HP up is crucial if you plan to steal some items.

Stealable Items

Hi-Potion can be stolen from Baku but is not valuable. Iron Sword is a rarer steal which can make the upcoming boss fight easier.


Baku retains his usual strategy from the first battle minus the instant kill attack. He still trips from time to time allowing you to have a breather turn.


Keep stealing until you obtain the Iron Sword. Once the weapon is stolen, attack Baku non-stop to end the fight. Make sure to keep an eye on your HP and use a potion if necessary.
