Black Waltz 2 Boss Battle Guide


FF9 Black Waltz 2
Black Waltz 2 is a magician that only uses his strongest moves as counters. His magic attacks are weak, and his only redeeming attack is a physical move.

Black Waltz, however, counters Vivi's magic, so be mindful about the moves that Vivi uses in this battle.


Black Waltz 2 uses weak magics and a strong damaging attack called Teleport. Black Waltz also counters Vivi's magics with a stronger version of that same magic.

Have Vivi focus on using items or using Focus. Keep your HP up with potions while having Zidane attempt to steal all of the items. Once the items are stolen, Use Steiner's Magic Swords and other member's physical attacks to end the fight.

Be careful about using Vivi's magics, as Black Waltz 2 will counter using a higher tier spell that targets your whole party. Only use Vivi's magics if everyone's health are near the max value.
