The Garuda is an enemy that appears in Final Fantasy XIII-2.
This enemy uses "Barrier" to increase its resistance to physical attacks and magic.
When facing the Garuda, Serah and Noel's first priority should be to stagger it. They can use the Relentless Assault (RAV/COM/RAV) paradigm to stabilize this enemy's chain gauge, Tri-disaster (RAV/RAV/RAV) to fill it, and Cerberus (COM/COM/COM) to deal as much damage as possible to the Garuda before its chain gauge empties.
