BattleEdit

SOLDIER:3rds tend to show up in pairs. They use Split for minor damage, Bolt2, Ice2, as well as the Flying Sickle attack, which each sickle dealing moderate damage to one character. Both his Split and Flying Sickle attacks may be used twice in one turn. He can use Sleepel to inflict sleep on a single character. They are weak against Fire.

SOLDIER:3rd is one of the few enemies that have weaknesses and resistances to particular status attributes. He is weak to Confusion status abilities, so if attacked when in this status ailment, he takes double damage. However, the party doesn't have the means to inflict Confuse during the time they first visit Shinra HQ.

StrategyEdit

Having a character equipped with Fire-All is helpful.
