Boris is a fiend in Final Fantasy X-2. He is first fought in Chapter 1 as a boss guarding the Black Mage dressphere atop the Floating Ruins on Mt. Gagazet. Later, when access to the Floating Ruins is unlocked in Chapter 3, he may appear as an ordinary rare enemy anywhere in the ruins.
For the first encounter, Boris is fairly strong, as he can inflict around 50 damage per strike. His Sticky End attack can inflict the Stop status on the party.
It is best to have two party members in attacking-type dresspheres (such as the Gunner and Warrior) and the third as a Songstress who should continually use Darkness Dance. If a Warrior knows the abilities Flametongue or Liquid Steel, those could also be used.
In Chapter 3 and later, Boris has become obsolete and usually dies from the first attack.
Fiend Tale Edit
A notable Boris was a trickster who messed with the Gullwings' heads by claiming to be attacked by various fiends just to get Shinra's attention. On the day he was let go, he did get attacked by a Behemoth and was saved by Shinra.
