VII

Schizo is a boss fought in Final Fantasy VII, atop Gaea's Cliff. It is a two-headed dragon-like monster. There is a healing spring in the screen before the encounter to heal before the battle. The inescapable battles glitch, which prevents the player from escaping random encounters, occurs in the area after Schizo is defeated until the player exits the screen.

BattleEdit

The left head uses powerful Ice attacks, while the right head uses powerful Fire attacks. Together the boss can inflict a stronger Double Breath attack if both heads are alive. The right head uses Right Breath instead of Double Breath against all party members if the left head is dead, and the left head uses Left Breath instead of Double Breath against all party members if the right head is dead.

The right head counterattacks with Tremor every 5th hit while the left head with every 6th hit, which hits the entire party and is the same as Quake2 spell.

Both heads must be destroyed to kill Schizo. When a head dies, it unleashes a powerful Lightning-elemental group attack upon the party as a Final Attack. Without Lightning protection it will do roughly 1,500 damage to the entire party, and it is cast twice in succession if both heads are killed at once.

StrategyEdit

The best way to deal with this boss is to focus on one head at a time. Attacks that contain multiple elements heal both heads, such as Magic Breath and Kjata. Comet, Fire2/Fire3 (for the Ice head), Ice2/Ice3 (for the Fire head), as well as Leviathan, Bahamut and Alexander are all good.

Protecting the party against elemental attacks makes the battle easier: such as equipping Fire/Ice/Bolt Ring or Elemental Armlets, and linking the Elemental Materia with an elemental Materia in a character's armor. Dragon Armlet halves damage from all three elements, and they can be obtained from the Blue Dragons in the area right before the Schizo battle.

As Schizo uses Magic Points to attack, Magic Hammer on both heads can drain their MP dry to prevent them from attacking, so one can focus on killing or stealing with ease.

EtymologyEdit

Schizo's name may be derived from the mental disorder schizophrenia, which is commonly (although incorrectly) used to describe people with bipolar or dissociative identity disorder. This refers to Schizo having two heads, each with distinct abilities. People with bipolar disorder often alternate between periods of mania and depression, while people with dissociative identity disorder have multiple distinct personalities.

The Japanese name for Schizo is literally translated as "Twin Heads".
