Gizamaluke Boss Battle Guide


FF9 gizamaulke boss fight

Gizamaluke is a boss that has high physical damaging moves and water based elemental magics.


Crash is a high damaging move that can deal atleast 70 damage to backline fighters, and even more to characters placed in the frontline. Water is a water elemental magic (big surprise) that deals an average of 120 damage to its target.


Have Vivi constantly use Focus while Zidane attempts to steal Gizamaluke's items. Have Freya and Quina (if the party went to Qu's Marsh) use Potions on allies whose HP are low enough to die from Gizamalauke's hits.

Once the items are stolen, unleash attacks and have Freya keep on using Jump or Lancer. Have Vivi cast Thunder repeatedly until Gizamaluke falls.
