SHOW ME WHAT YOU GOT! YOU'LL REGRET FIGHTING ME!
—Krysta

Krysta is a boss from Final Fantasy VIII, encountered on the Terrace of Ultimecia Castle. It is one of Ultimecia's eight minions. To get to the Terrace the party must cross the chandelier from where Sphinxaur was battled, but it must be fixed in place via a lever in the floor below or it will drop when stepped upon.

StatsEdit

Battle Edit

Counter Rocket is a counterattack to all moves which damages according to characters' Vitality stat. When defeated, Krysta will cast its final move, Ultima, which will hit all characters, doing especially devastating damage to those with low Spirit. The player can draw Carbuncle from it if it was missed earlier.

Strategy Edit

The party should use magic attacks, such as draw-casting Holy.

Due to its relatively low HP, Krysta is easy to defeat with just one attack. Casting Meteor, preferably in conjunction with Double or Triple, will most likely kill it right away. Another strategy is summoning Diablos, then Cactuar; if both Guardian Forces are at a considerable level, Krysta will be defeated after these two attacks.

EtymologyEdit

Cocytus, meaning "the river of wailing," is a river in the underworld in Greek mythology. In Dante's Inferno, Cocytus is the ninth and lowest circle of Hell where traitors are frozen in a lake of ice, Satan is imprisoned waist deep in ice at the very center of Hell.

Its English name derives from the word "crystal".
