In the first fight, his water shield can be destroyed by casting spells he is weak against. Tellah can cast Thundaga and Palom can cast Thundara for massive damage, as Cagnazzo is weak to Lightning. However, if too much damage is inflicted, he will withdraw into his shell and will begin to heal himself, use the best attacks available to finish him quickly. Cecil should keep a Zeus's Wrath in case Cagnazzo starts to use Tsunami.
The battle is essentially the same, but Cagnazzo's weakness changes depending on whether he is going to use Tsunami or not. When he is surrounded by water, Ice attacks will heal him and Thunder attacks will be more effective. Thunder spells or items such as Zeus's Wrath will also destroy the barrier. When he is not surrounded by water, he is weak to Ice instead. When he withdraws into his shell, he will heal himself occasionally, but retains his weaknesses.
Cagnazzo will attempt to counter with Hold when hit with a physical attack, and Silence when hit with a magical attack. Also, Tsunami is more dangerous.
[view·edit·purge]Cagnazzo is a demon in the Inferno of Dante's Divine Comedy. He is one of the 13 Malebranche ("Evil Claws") who guard Bolgia Five of the eighth circle of Hell, Malebolge. Vulgar and quarrelsome, their duty is to force the corrupt politicians to stay under the surface of a boiling lake of pitch.
