The Ispusteke is an enemy in Final Fantasy XIII-2. It appears alone or with one other Ispusteke. The Ispusteke can be a very dangerous opponent if not handled carefully. To begin with, a player should obtain a preemptive strike, which is invaluable for dealing with these creatures.
Once the battle begins, the player should begin with Relentless Assault to stabilize the chain gauge, then switch to Tri-disaster to increase it as quickly as possible. Whenever the Ispusteke uses Multicast, the player should switch to a defensive paradigm to reduce the damage dealt, and then switch back to Tri-disaster quickly. Once the creature is staggered, the party should switch to Cerberus. Its defenses are extremely low, so it should not last through the entire stagger period.
