The Set is a more powerful Anubys creature. It is still susceptible to perfect guarding against its axe swings, although it will take more than one perfect guard to stagger it. It has a quick sideways slice that may catch players off guard while attacking it; it is weak, but frequent.
It has three dangerous attacks: an overhead smash that is slow but will hurt; Spellsword, which unless evaded or perfect guarded will do 5000+ damage; and Wargod's Boon, which bestows Bravery, Haste, Protect and Shell on it.
The player should aim to perfect guard Set's axe swings and go in for the kill when it has stumbled to the floor. The player can steal the Set's status buffs, with Bravery and Haste being the most useful. The player can use Deprotect twice to get rid of its Protect status.

- Set shares its Japanese name with a character from Final Fantasy VII, Seto.
