Fiora is the best party leader for this trial. Her Final Cross allows you to topple and severely damage the Mammut while also bringing down the surrounding enemies. The party gauge is also easy to increase due to the enemy's quantity. This allows Fiora to use Final Cross multiple times in succession.

These 2 have high survivability which is needed to endure the enemy assault during the first seconds of the fight. They also have strong single target arts which is extremely helpful in whittling down the Mammut's massive HP.
