Motor Ball is a boss in Final Fantasy VII fought after escaping from the Shinra Headquarters. The boss is fought immediately after the motorcycle minigame, and the party's starting HP depends on how much damage the player sustained during the minigame. If a party member died during the minigame they start the battle with 1 HP, but get knocked out straight away as Motor Ball always gets first turn.

BattleEdit

MotorBall-ffvii-CM

The battle will always be a Back Attack and the boss deals unblockable damage to all party members as soon as the battle begins, which is actually his Highway attack used one-time in whole battle. Because the battle is a back attack, the battle rows are reversed.

Motor Ball has two forms. It starts in Form 1, that is his Upright form. Its second form is when it bends over, this is Flamethrower form. It resists Fire, and it is immune to Poison.

Motor Ball has a fixed attack pattern (except Highway): Arm Attack, Arm Attack, Transform to Form 2 and Twin Burner (in same turn), Transform to Form 1, Rolling Fire, and it starts from Arm Attack again. When Motor Ball it run out MP, it uses Deadly Wheel instead Rolling Fire and Twin Burner in his first and second forms, respectively. About this attack, his name is shown when replaces to Rolling Fire.

Motor Ball attacks using physical attacks, which are not too strong, but eventually, it shifts to its other form and uses new attacks. It can use Arm Attack on the character who has the highest current HP, and may uses this attack twice in one turn. Twin Burner hits the entire party for considerable Fire damage. Motor Ball later uses Rolling Fire, which is an even stronger Fire attack doing around 200 damage. When Motor Ball falls below 1/8th of its Max HP, it switches to its second form immediately, and uses again (if it was already in that form) his two attacks of his Flamethrower form. After that, continues following his fixed attack pattern in the rest for battle.

Motor Ball is weak to Lightning.

StrategyEdit

If the party acquired the Elemental Materia from Domino, they can link it to a Fire Materia in someone's armor to lessen Fire damage.

Offensively, the party should use Bolt. It is advised that Aeris be in the party to use Healing Wind. Otherwise, the party should use Restore Materia linked to an All Materia, as they should have several of each by this point.
