Black Waltz 3 Boss Battle Guide


FF9 Black Waltz 3
Black Waltz 3 doesn't counter Vivi's magics, unlike Black Waltz 2, and is for the most part an easier battle than the previous one. Black Waltz flies into the air after recieving a physical attack and uses thundara on the whole party.


Black Waltz 3 uses the three mid tier black magics (Fira, Blizzara, and Thundara). While airborne, Black Waltz will keep using Thundara on the whole party.


FF9 Black Waltz 3
Have Steiner and Vivi keep on using magics while Zidane steals equipment or uses potions to keep everyone's HP high.
