BattleEdit

Jenova∙BIRTH is one of the few bosses in Final Fantasy VII that can be fought in a preemptive battle. Jenova∙BIRTH's most dangerous attack is Stop, which can incapacitate a party member for most of the battle. It only has enough MP to cast this three times. Its attack pattern goes like this: Stop, Laser, Tail Laser, W-Laser, Gas (1/3 chance), and it starts from Stop again. However, it does not always begin the battle with the Stop ability. After using Stop, Jenova will skip its next two turns, or only the next turn if it used Gas first. Laser and W-Laser can be used between one and three times a turn and Tail Laser once or twice in succession. When Jenova is too low on MP to cast Stop, it will skip its turn.

Attacks, in order:

  • Stop - Inflicts the Stop status to one target. Jenova has enough MP to cast this three times. There is no replacement for this action; after running out of MP to use it, it will do nothing. After using it, Jenova will perform no actions on two successive turns, or the next turn, if Gas was used the same turn. Because of this, after Stop is cast is the safest time for low-level challengers or otherwise weak parties to launch their attacks.
  • Laser - A single laser bolt is fired at an enemy; Jenova's weakest attack, but it does this one to three times to the party, either to the same person or on all party members.
  • Tail Laser - Four deep blue laser beams are raked across the ground in the party's vicinity; small clouds of smoke rise from each laser strike; the characters are knocked back and an energy discharge surrounds them. Jenova's most damaging attack, causing around two hundred points of damage; it may be used once or twice a turn.
  • W-Laser - Twin lasers converge at the target, releasing coronas of gold and blue energy. This attack can do considerable damage as it can use this one to three times nonstop even after her Laser attack.
  • Gas - A sinuous stream of glowing green poisonous gas is spewed at a target; a spray of gold energy is released as it hits the target. Slightly weak, with a one-third chance to be used.

StrategyEdit

Aeris should use her Healing Wind to heal if she is in the party, as should Yuffie use her Clear Tranquil. Restore Materia linked to an All Materia can help otherwise. If the party acquired the Enemy Skill Beta from Midgar Zolom before entering Junon, it is helpful. The Fury status can also be useful, as nearly all of Jenova's attacks will instantly charge a level 1 Limit meter while afflicted with Fury, allowing for a constant barrage of special moves.

EtymologyEdit

The dot between the words is an interpunct used in Japanese to indicate that a full proper noun is two separate words. It appears in Final Fantasy VII in the boss names of Jenova's parts and Sephiroth's boss forms.

The names of Jenova∙BIRTH, Jenova∙LIFE, and Jenova∙DEATH are alluded to Saṃsāra, the repeating cycle of birth, life, and death in Buddhism.
