Omega attacks rapidly, so it is advised to keep a Sentinel up for most of the fight. Its Flamethrower is strong enough to instantly kill weaker characters, but a well-developed Sentinel can absorb most of the missiles and lasers. The player can also use a buffing Paradigm like Prudent Planning (SYN/SYN/SEN), or one with Serah as a Saboteur, like Premeditation. Omega is immune to most things, but Dispel works.
After a while, Omega will begin charging a Wave Cannon. The party should be ready to switch to a Tortoise Paradigm when he charges to 120%, although he gives a brief warning just before he unleashes the cannon.
Just after the Wave Cannon, Omega overheats and staggers and becomes vulnerable. The party should quickly swap into a healing Paradigm like Combat Clinic to recover any lost HP before going all out. It is able to toss missiles out, but an offensive Paradigm like Relentless Assault is recommended until it stands up again. Omega is vulnerable to Deprotect while staggered.
When its health runs low, Omega will glow red and run around the arena dealing continuous small hits. With a Sentinel this attack is just as negligible as his generic missiles and lasers. The only problem is that it won't be easy to hit using melee attacks, but fortunately this attack doesn't last long enough to lose the party's chain. It is still capable of Wave Cannon in this phase, but it won't Overheat, and the running rampant attacks will resume. Before it uses Wave Cannon, it will buff himself by using Particle Accelerator.

The song "Threat Level Omega" plays during the battle with Omega. The only other time this song plays in the game is in Academia 400 AF.
Before game patch 1.03 was released, the Japanese version of the game plays an untitled song in the battle against Omega. After this patch the track was changed to "Threat Level Omega".
- This Omega's appearance is based on its Final Fantasy V counterpart.
- The Arbiter of Time's dialogue about Omega paraphrases a book in Final Fantasy V about Omega, "The roiling skies let loose a vile beast without a soul: Omega was its name".
- Omega is the only mechanical being that can be obtained as Paradigm Pack monster through the DLC, as all others are classed as biological enemies.
