The Balivarha is an enemy from Final Fantasy X-2. It has relatively good all-round stats and the ability to absorb Fire, however any non-Fire magic will serve well here. Also utilizing Armor Break will help drastically reduce its high Defense, and equipping Fire-absorbing equipment or using a Lunar Curtain/Light Curtain, casting Shell/Protect, and using high Defense dresspheres will help reduce the damage it can deal. It is generally not too tough of an enemy compared to others in the game.
In the Fiend Tale endings, a notable Balivarha was a good for nothing who was selected to represent the Ruminants who attended a peace conference between his kind and the Drakes represented by Spine Drake. However, it turned out to be a trap by Yevon monks to pit the two fiend-types against each other. Luckily, Divebeak, Vertigo, and Barbuta revealed the treachery and Balivarha and Spine Drake join forces against their common enemy.
