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 can be Launched and taken down with water-elemental attacks. When fighting Thermadons alongside other enemies, it is best to take out the accomplices before focusing on the Thermadon.
