As Cerberus attacks three times per turn, the player should start the battle by slowing him down with a Spider Silk or the Slow spell. If the player has multiple party members with the Reflect spell, the player should cast Reflect on the party to bounce their spells back. Black Mages should attack with their most powerful spells, and physical attackers should use their strongest attacks and bands. If the player only has one White Mage, Cerberus' spells are not too damaging, and if he is slowed, the player should be able to keep up with healing.
[view·edit·purge]Cerberus appears in Greek Mythology as the three-headed dog that guards the gates to the Underworld at the end of the River Styx. Its original appearance is as a monstrous dog with three heads, a snake for a tail, and snakes going down his back as a mane. Although being ferocious and eating anyone who tries to enter the Underworld uninvited, it has been known to be subdued several times through different means.
