Kaiser Behemoth starts the battle as a quadrupedal beast but eventually stands up on two legs.
To get a five star rating, one should kill the Behemoth before it transforms. A preemptive strike is highly helpful. This can be done without a Deceptisol if the Behemoth is drawn away from the water and the player attacks it exactly from its back (this may take a few tries). This will allow a quick stagger. If this cannot be done, it is recommended to use a Deceptisol before fighting the mark.
It is possible to get a five star rating if one can launch and juggle him right after he transforms. One might have to use a Deceptisol and Fortisol, but it may be possible without it. It is recommended to use the Relentless Assault paradigm (COM/RAV/RAV) or the Aggression Paradigm (COM/COM/RAV).
One can change the battle team to Sazh (leader), Fang and Lightning, start with the Hero's Charge paradigm (SYN/COM/MED), until all characters are buffed with with Haste, Bravery, Vigilance, and Faith, then switch to Diversity (COM/RAV/MED), or if the MED isn't needed, switch to Relentless Assault.
When the Kaiser Behemoth transforms, the party should switch to Evened Odds (SYN/MED/SAB) and inflict Slow and Curse to it and switch back to Diversity or Relentless Assault. The party should use Mallets when Kaiser Behemoth casts Fogga.
Kaiser is the German title meaning "Emperor", derived ultimately from the name of Julius Caesar. Many languages use a descendant of the word Caesar to mean "emperor", such as Russian царь (tsar) and Greek Καῖσαρ (Kaîsar).
Behemoth is the Hebrew primal beast of the land, with Leviathan being the primal beast of the water and Ziz being the primal beast of the sky. According to legend, Behemoth and Leviathan will battle at the end of the world, and eventually kill each other.
