How to Beat Tonberry King | Final Fantasy VIII

This is a walkthrough for the boss Tonberry King from the game Final Fantasy VIII (FF8, FFVIII). Read on for tips and strategy about how to beat Tonberry King, including Tonberry King's stats and other useful information.

How to Beat Tonberry King

Preparation

Set the Draw command.

Moveset

Junk, which Tonberry King uses as a counterattack every 5 moves done against it. Another move it has is called It's Sharp, which deals damage to the character based on the character's kill count *30.

Strategy

Cast Regen if you have it, or else just draw and cast Curaga from Tonberry King to your allies if they fall low on HP. Don't let your magic focused characters attack, as this will shorten the time Tonberry King must wait before it can use its Junk move.
