Like his palette swap counter parts (Dante, Hell's Rider, and Death Rider), he always attacks by himself. Test Rider uses a powerful physical attack called Golden Lance, and has a chance to counter any attacks with an attack of its own. Bio spells are effective against it.

The Test Rider can be morphed into an Ice Shield using Ragnarok, but this is an inefficient way to amass Ice Shields compared to Coliseum betting, as the low chance of Metamorphose working makes it time-consuming.

Coliseum setupEdit

Bet Assassin's Dagger for Swordbreaker
Bet Bone Club for Red Jacket
Bet Dragon Claws for Sniper
Bet Kagenui for Murakumo
Bet Magus Robe for Magus Robe
Bet Rainbow Brush for Gravity Rod

Avoid using Locke or Gogo with Steal, Mug or having someone equipped with the Thief's Knife equipped for this fight. At similar levels, Shadow or Gogo (sans above commands) will work just as well as Locke, and they'll have one less Golden Lance to worry about.

Use Ice or Water resistant/absorbing equipment to protect against Flash Rain. A character under the Imp status with the entire set of Imp equipment is a perfect candidate against Test Rider. The Imp equipment will let them absorb Flash Rain, and their high defense will render the rest of Test Rider's attacks useless.
