As a derivative of the Defender X, Defender Z uses the same attacks, Haymaker, a powerful physical attack, and Blast Punch, an attack that halves the character's HP and causes Delay.


The easiest way to defeat these monsters is to hit them with Provoke, which causes them to only hit that character with Blast Punch. Once they have been provoked, they should pose little threat and can easily be defeated. Unlike Defender X, the Black Magic Demi is effective and able to do 9,999 damage due to Defender Z's high hit point total, ideally Doublecast to deal nearly 20,000 damage each time.
