Cyclops is an enemy and boss that appears in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. It can be found in the Yusnaan area. The Slaughterhouse version is called Cyclops the Rage.

Battle Edit

Cyclops can be a daunting foe as its tactics change mid-fight. It begins as a somewhat simple punching bag with tons of HP and a few simple attacks. When Cyclops's health reaches 50%, it will cast Rage. It becomes less resistant to damage, but attacks relentlessly making it difficult to avoid area attacks. Careful timing can stagger it by guarding against its Slam attack or hitting it with physical attacks when it is balancing one one foot after its larger attack combos.

Strategy Edit

The player can use Fira Lv. 3 or an equivalent spell to knock Cyclops into the air and capitalize on it by casting lesser ranged spells until it stands up, then knock it into the air again.

Etymology Edit

In Greek mythology, cyclopes (the plural form of cyclops) is a race of giants, having but a single round eye on their forehead. They were said to be children of other mythological beings, such as the gods, nymphs, and even the Earth itself. Skilled blacksmiths, the cyclopes sometimes made weapons for the gods, most famous of these being the thunderbolts of Zeus.

Trivia Edit

  • Cyclops is among the rare enemies that do not disappear upon being defeated. This can be easily seen when fighting a regular enemy Cyclops or fighting one in the Slaughterhouse.
