Battle Edit

It uses Mighty Guard to increase its defenses, and counterattacks with the powerful Heave, a physical attack. When it dies it casts Meteor or Ultima as a final attack, both of which have high power and could potentially kill the party. To be safe, the player is advised casting Reraise before killing the Dark Behemoth or bypass this attack by using Banish to kill it immediately.
