FF8Brothers

The Brothers (ブラザーズ, Burazāzu?) (Taurus in the French version) are a pair of minotaurs from Final Fantasy VIII, named Minotaur and Sacred, that the party can obtain as a Guardian Force. They appear in the Tomb of the Unknown King and must be defeated in order to become usable by the party. After their defeat, the player also receives their cards for Triple Triad. Obtaining Brothers in the Steam version earns the player the achievement Brothers.

The symbols on their shields means "younger brother" (, Sacred?) and "older brother" (, Minotaur?). During dialogue sequences, Sacred speaks only in capitals, while Minotaur speaks only in lower-case letters. While Sacred is the younger brother and Minotaur is the older brother, Sacred is much bigger in size than Minotaur.

AttackEdit

Brotherly Love

The Brothers use an Earth-elemental attack called Brotherly Love (兄弟仁義, Kyōdai Jingi?) when summoned. Brothers' summon time is 19.3s, which, according to the Final Fantasy VIII Ultimania, allows the player to boost the damage to around 220% of normal damage using a regular PlayStation controller.

Its damage is calculated as follows:[1]

Damage = 60 * Level / 10 + 46 + 4
Damage = Damage * (265 - TargetSpr) / 8
Damage = Damage * 46 / 256
Damage = Damage * Boost / 100
Damage = Damage * (100 + SummonMagBonus) / 100
Damage = Damage * (900 - ElemDef) / 100:

Elemental Defense starts at 800 (0%), 900 nullifies damage and 1000 absorbs it. If an enemy is shown to be weak against an element, its Elemental Defense is below 800. If damage becomes negative (due to high Elemental Defense), the target is healed by that amount.
