BattleEdit

Like his previous forms, most of his attacks cause various status effects even with Ribbons equipped. He uses his Absorb attack that inflicts damage but doesn't Drain HP.

He uses combo attacks, often on the party member who last acted. Combos are used in succession in the certain order against the same target unless the target dies midway. His second hit version may inflict Poison, his third hit version may inflict Darkness, and his fourth hit version may inflict Sleep. His others abilities are Slow and Sleepel. This last ability may inflict sleep, and only use it as a counter-attack against magical attacks.

StrategyEdit

Although it seems like the toughest form out of the three, it is fairly easy with a little trick; equipping a Counterattack Materia and a Cover Materia to a character allows them to have a chance at attacking once for every one of Hojo's combo attacks. Magic Hammer is useful, draining Hojo's MP so the only attack he can use is Combo, making the above strategy easier to use. With these tricks, Hojo can be downed with minimal casualties.

NamingEdit

Lifeform-Hojo N is called Lifeform-Hojo NA when targeted in-game because Hojo's previous forms are accompanied by two other enemies. Lifeform-Hojo N fights alone, however; because the battle engine cannot handle this change, three Lifeform-Hojo Ns attack the party. Lifeform-Hojo NB and Lifeform-Hojo NC are set to not appear at the start of the battle. The Final Fantasy VII Ultimania Omega still refers to the enemy with the added "A" after its name.[1]

His Japanese name translates to "Extreme Lifeform Hojo N" or "Ultimate Lifeform Hojo N".
