Kraken Boss Battle Guide

Details

FINAL FANTASY IX_20200214161958.jpg
Kraken continues the trends of the chaos guardians and specializes in its own element, which is water. Having water resistant equippment, as well as the Body Temp ability, will prevent you from dying or freezing.

Moveset

Kraken's main physical attack is Leg. Kraken can also use Freeze to freeze a character (brrr!). Ink can inflict damage and darkness to a single character. Water-Gun is a water elemental attack that damages a single target. At critical HP, Kraken will also use Waterga on the whole party.

Strategy

FF9 Kraken
This is a battle where having Auto-Reflect for everyone can backfire. Water elemental attacks will heal Kraken, so bouncing Waterga back to Kraken will heal it instead. Using Thunder-based attacks like Ramuh, Steiner's Sword Magic, and Vivi's Thundaga can lay waste to Kraken in no time.
