Resistance is futile.
—Black Waltz No. 2

Black Waltz No. 2 is a boss from Final Fantasy IX. It attacks the party on the airfield at Dali.

When the battle is over, Dagger will attempt to get information from the dying construct but to no avail.

Battle Edit

The Black Waltz will not attack Dagger, but if she is the last party member standing, the Black Waltz will cast Hypnotize on her, and it will be Game Over.

This Black Waltz uses second level Black Magic (Fira, Thundara, Blizzara). The Black Waltz No. 2 rarely casts its level two magic, but halfway through the battle, will cast one, usually Fira, after saying, "My mission is to take back the princess!" If magic is cast on it by Vivi, it will taunt him by using the next spell up. For example, if Vivi uses Thunder, the Black Waltz will counter with Thundara, claiming, "This is how you use Thunder!" It does not retaliate in this way if Steiner's Sword Magic is used against him.

Once its HP drops under 515 HP and Vivi is still alive, the Black Waltz No. 2 will cast Fira on the entire party, bar Dagger.

Strategy Edit

Dagger should continuously heal the other party members as she doesn't need to fear being attacked. Vivi and Steiner can combine their forces to use Sword Magic against the Black Waltz.
