Battle Edit

When the boss and both of its arms are alive together, they cast Delta Attack, which petrifies a target and cannot miss, barring immunity. On its own Inferno uses Thundaga, Gigavolt, Atomic Rays, and Shockwave. It counters with its special attack, Sobat, doing heavy physical damage. When alone Inferno will use Magitek Barrier to give itself Protect and Reflect.

Strategy Edit

Inferno is weak to Lightning, so the party's own Thundaga spells work well against it. The player can equip Reflect Rings to bounce the Inferno's Thundaga spells back at it to damage it, but if they do so they are advised to have Strago or Mog in the party to bypass Reflect and heal the party with Dance or Lore, as Inferno's other attacks can be dangerous. Inferno is immune to Invisible, so the quick-kill Vanish-Death combo is useless.
