StatsEdit

Battle Edit

As the Scan description says, Cerberus uses Triple, combined with strong elemental spells. Triple, and the Haste that Cerberus will cast on himself when his HP falls low, can be removed with Dispel. Cerberus likes to use Thundaga and Tornado.

Strategy Edit

Junctioning thunder- and air-type spells to Elem-Def-J and using Float to give immunity to Quake gives a defensive posture that may aid in drawing the valuable Triple from Cerberus before defeating him.
