Tri-Point is a boss in Final Fantasy VIII. Encountered in Ultimecia Castle's Wine Cellar, it is one of the Ultimecia's eight minions that must be defeated to unlock the seals placed on the party.

In the game's western releases Siren can be drawn from Tri-Point if the player did not draw it from Elvoret earlier.

StatsEdit

Battle Edit

Once the battle initiates the Boss will say:

'USING ELEMENTAL ATTACKS.'
'WHATEVER I DON'T USE, I DON'T LIKE.'

Tri-Point will counter with Mega Spark unless it is hit with an element it is very weak against. If Tri-Point uses Scan on a target, the target will be hit with Onrush the next turn. It is a massive, inevitable attack that ignores defense, often dealing 9,999 HP damage.

Strategy Edit

To find out Tri-Point's weakness, the player must Scan Tri-Point first to know if it's weak against either Fire or Ice. If it is weak against Fire, the party must attack with Fire attacks, which prompts Tri-Point to be weak against Ice, of which then the player must attacks with an Ice attack. Alternatively, since Mega Spark is Lightning-elemental, if it is possible to junction the characters' Elem Def-J to negate or absorb Mega Spark.

It may be useful to use Protect on the scanned character to mitigate the damage from Onrush.
