Bahamut is a boss in Final Fantasy X-2 encountered in Bevelle Underground. Instead of the normal battle music, "Yuna's Ballad" plays during the battle. Defeating it in the HD Remaster version earns the trophy Defeating an Old Friend.

BattleEdit

Bahamut uses a physical attack that can be evaded. The player can use Protect to lessen damage. Impulse is a magic-based attack that inflicts damage on the entire party. The player can use Shell to lessen damage. Mega Flare is a powerful magic-based attack that inflicts massive damage on the entire party. The player can use Shell to lessen damage and Bahamut will count down from 5 to 0 before Mega Flare is used.

StrategyEdit

The recommended party is Alchemist, Dark Knight and Warrior. The party should have a large stock of Potions and (if possible) Hi-Potions. The Warrior should know all four of the Break abilities: Power Break, Armor Break, Magic Break, and Mental Break.

The Warrior should alternate between Power Break and Magic Break to reduce damage the party sustains until she has reduced those stats as far as possible. The Alchemist can repeatedly mix a Potion with a Hi-Potion to create a Mega-Potion. If this is not possible, a White Mage with Shell, Protect, and Curaga will do. Dark Knight should use Darkness every turn.

After the Warrior has reduced Bahamut's Strength and Magic as far as possible, she should begin using Armor Break and Mental Break so the party's attacks will inflict maximum damage. Depending on how much damage the party inflict by the time all four stats are minimized, the Gullwings may have already won. If not, the Warrior can turn into a Dark Knight and also use Darkness.

The player can also use a Special Dressphere; Full Throttle is recommended. The player should have the Sinistral Wing raise the Full Throttle's Strength and Defense, cast Haste, and lower Bahamut's stats. Dextral Wing can repeatedly cast Poison Wing - as Bahamut is immune to all status ailments one attack from Dextral Wing is as good as another.

Paine should repeatedly use Fiers, which always deals a critical hit. If Sword Dance has been learned this early it is very useful against Bahamut.

This strategy can be easily adapted to the Floral Fallal and the Machina Maw as well.

Bahamut is an optional boss in the Fiend Arena and is the strongest of all the aeons. To unlock him, the player must capture and finish the storyline of Azi Dahaka. This will release Bahamut and he can be fought in the Battle Simulator. If all eight aeons are unlocked, the Aeon Cup is unlocked.

To recruit Azi Dahaka to the party, the player must defeat it in chapter 5 before it becomes available to capture. Once this has been done, it can be trapped by setting a L sized pod in Bevelle.

EtymologyEdit

[view  · edit  · purge]Bahamut (Arabic بهموت Bahamūt) originated as an enormous whale in ancient pre-Islamic Arabian mythology. Upon Bahamut's back stands a bull with four thousand eyes, ears, noses, mouths, tongues and feet called Kujuta (also spelled "Kuyutha"). Between each of these is a distance of a 500-year journey. On the back of Kujuta is a mountain of ruby. Atop this mountain is an angel who carries six hells, earth, and seven heavens on its shoulders.

Another version of the Arabic story is that Bahamut is indeed a dragon and he stands on a whale called Liwash.

In modern times, the game Dungeons & Dragons is responsible for re-imagining Bahamut as the king of dragons, a benevolent Platinum Dragon; the opposite of the malevolent Tiamat, the five-headed Chromatic Queen of Dragons.
