Dark Valefor Boss Battle Guide

FFX Dark Valefor Besaid Village Superboss Battle


Stats Max Sphere Grid/ Max Stats
Weapons Celestial Weapons
Armour Auto-Haste, Break HP Limit (optional), Auto-Potion(if Break HP Limit is equipped)
Character Rikku (for Hyper Mighty G)
Overdrive Mode Comrade


Sonic Wings Damages a target and inflicts delay
Energy Ray Deals fixed 9999 damage to all party members
Energy Blast Deals massive damage to all party members (around 50,000 damage)
Valefor uses this when its Overdrive gauge is full.


Dark Valefor has a low HP pool for a Dark Aeon (800,000) so going for a full offensive strategy can work wonders. Using Wakka's Attack Reels can potentially kill Dark Valefor in a single turn(if Wakka's Strength stat is high/maxed out). If this is not an option, keeping Hyper Mighty G active for all your party members is a must since Dark Valefor uses Energy Ray randomly.

Another strategy is equipping an armour with Break HP Limit to survive Energy Ray's fixed 9999 damage (even just having 10,000 HP can make this fight way easier). Use Trio of 9999 and partner that armour with Auto-Potion to survive all attacks aside from Energy Blast. If Dark Valefor's overdrive gauge is full, switch in Rikku and use Hyper Mighty G to survive the attack (of course, swapping in Yuna then using an Aeon to block works too).
