The Thermadon is an enemy in Final Fantasy XIII.
Thermadons are some of the most difficult enemies do deal with on the Palamecia, as their protective carapace mitigates all damage. Its Photon Burst inflicts damage and launches the target into the air. Once staggered, they lose the carapace and come vulnerable to damage and can be launched.
When fighting Thermadons alongside other enemies, it is best to take out the accomplices before focusing on the Thermadon. The player should deploy a paradigm with Ravagers to stagger it. Water-elemental attacks are especially good.
