Soulcage Boss Battle Guide


FINAL FANTASY IX_20200211153218.jpg

An undead boss! Soulcage is an undead plant that can use a new move when set ablaze. Be careful when using Reflect abilities as this may cause Soulcage to set itself on fire.


Soulcage can use Level 5 Death as well as Mustard Bomb which inflicts the Heat status. A character inflicted with Heat will be instnantly killed when they perform an action. Shockwave and Leaf Swirl are both AoE attacks. Fire Blades is an attack Soulcage will use when Fire magic is used against it.


Undead take damage from the restorative effects of magic and items. This goes the same for revival abilities. Using Life on Soulcage will immediately defeat it. Using a Phoenix Down is also viable, but only reduces its HP to 1 so one more regular attack will take it down.
