Ash will use Reflect on itself then reflect Stop from itself at the party. It also casts Doom and Death. Its strongest attack is Snowstorm, an attack which hits the entire party for Ice-elemental damage. Ash is weak to Wind-elemental attacks and is not immune to Heat, Freeze, or Instant Death,
It is recommended to have Ice-absorbing equipment to avoid Snowstorm, as it can be devastating to a lower-leveled party. Demon Killer and Bird Killer are useful as Reflect Nullify is. Quina's Twister spell can deal heavy damage. Iai Strike, Mustard Bomb, and Freeze also work.

- Ash's design is based on Baphomet, an imagined pagan deity, product of Christian folklore concerning pagans.
- Ash appears as the second boss in Haukke Manor (Hard Mode) in the game Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.
- The similarities between Ash and Baphomet notwithstanding, the hand gestures also bear similarities to both The Magician and The Devil Tarot cards. In all these aspects, Baphomet represents the binary nature of all things and the total sum of the universe; male and female, past and present, good and evil, and in this interpretation, Gaia and Terra.
