Defender X Boss Battle Guide


Hastega white magic / Chocobo Wing. Provoke ability.


Defender X
Defender X has a high attack damage. It also has an armored status making normal attacks ineffective.


Its normal attack deals high damage, but its normal attack's damage pales in comparison to Haymaker which deals enough damage to possibly kill a party member from full health to 0. It also has blast punch which halves the current HP of its target.


Use Tidus's Provoke to make Defender X focus him. Defender X however, will only use Blast Punch so it can never kill Tidus. Apply Armor Break to it then finish the fight with normal attacks.
