Nemesis Boss Battle Guide


FFX How to beat Nemesis
Max Str, Agi, Def, Magdef,Auto-Potion, Auto-Haste, Auto-Phoenix, Rikku, Stock of X-Potions and Phoenix Down, Hyper Mighty G Item Mix, and Quick Hit.


Nemesis counters everything except attacks with Ultima.Nemesis uses Ethereal Cannon which deals massive damage to a single target (reduced by shell) and Ultra Spark which deals damage to the whole team.


Nemesis alternates between Ethereal Cannon and Ethereal Spark with random attacks in between. After using Ultra Spark, Nemesis will always use a normal attack.


FFX Nemesis defeated strategy and tips
Keep using quick hits and let Auto-Phoenix handle the revival of your teammate. When Ultra Spark is about to be used again, use Overdrives to get countered by Ultima to build up Rikku's Overdrive Gauge and use Hyper Mighty G again.

Keep count of the number of turns Nemesis has taken in the fight. Nemesis will use Armageddon around his 7th to 9th turn so make sure Auto-Life is always up during this time. When Armageddon is used, the turn counter resets to 0.
