The Tyrant has a scary name, but the battle is far from it. This boss packs some annoying magicks, but is nothing that a good White Mage and some Shell buffs can handle. Once your party is protected by the Shell spell, you've got nothing to worry about.


This boss has Fire-, Ice-, Lightning-, and Dark-element magicks. The Tyrant can also use Piercing Graviga, a form of the spell Gravity which ignores reflect.

Bile inflicts Sap, while Sonic Fang is a highly-damaging move which has a small chance to inflict Instant Death. It also has access to Fireball, a Fire-element attack.
