Dark Yojimbo Boss Battle Guide


Dark Yojimbo

Stats Max Stats with high luck (atleast 115)
Weapon Celestial Weapons
Armour Auto-Haste, Auto-Protect, Stoneproof, Defense +20%,
Characters Yuna (Summon Aeon to block Zanmato)
White Magics Auto-Life


Daigoro Inflicts petrification and deals damage to a single target
Kozuka Deals massive damage to a single target.
Wakizashi Deals massive damage to the whole party.
Zanmato Instantly kills the all targets
Pierces Auto-Life


Have Rikku use Hyper Mighty G to apply Auto-life to the whole party or cast auto-life manually to each member. Never leave a party member without Auto-life (This is to make sure that you can survive Wakizashi) and make sure to only use Quick Attacks against Yojimbo.

Due to his high defense stat, it is not advisable to use Overdrives (except for a 12-hit Attack Reel), instead, opt for Quick Attacks. If all attacks are dealing 99,999 damage (possible with the Celestial Weapon's defense ignoring effect), the Yojimbo can be slain in 17 attacks.

Repeat this same tactic against him for the following 5 battles to truly beat Dark Yojimbo.

Is Dark Yojimbo Really Defeated?

Defeat Dark Yojimbo 5 Times

FFX Dark Yojimbo Defeat Confirmation
After the battle in the last room, the summoner will either run away or bow to you and walk away(if the summoner bows, that is a signal that Yojimbo has been slain). To truly defeat dark Yojimbo, you have to beat him five times. The third battle is skippable so make sure not to head for the exit right away after the second battle.
