Gertrude is an enemy that appears in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.

Stats Edit



Battle Edit

Gertrude resists physical damage. It attacks with Rush and Energy Blast. Both have long cast times and the latter inflicting Curse. Staggering Gertrude increases the drop rate of NulAll Guard significantly. After it has been staggered, the player can deal a lot of physical damage without waiting for it to use an energy blast or hitting it from behind after guarding rush.

Strategy Edit

Employing Lightning-elemental attacks is the best way to deal damage. Using physical attacks while Gertrude is charging makes it easier to stagger.

Etymology Edit

Gertrude is a female given name which is derived from Germanic roots that meant "spear" and "strength." In William Shakespeare's play Hamlet, Gertrude is Hamlet's mother and Queen of Denmark.
