Gaunt Ω is an enemy that appears in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. It is a Last One that only appears when there is one Gaunt left.

Battle Edit

Gaunt Ω begin the battle with Deshell or an Aerora combo attack. After this, it will change its battle style randomly, either with an Aerora combo attack or Aerora with Aeroga finale.

Strategy Edit

Lightning should equip the Thunderbird Bracelet and the abilities Thundara, Thundaga or Sparkstrike as well as Mediguard, and Deshell.

The battle should be started with Deshell, to decreases Gaunt Ω's Magic Resistance and increase the effect of Magic-based abilities. Then use Sparkstrike or Thunder/Thundara/Thundaga to stagger it, if it starts to attack, perform a Perfect Block to reduce the damage taken. Then use the same strategies, or heal if needed.
