In its first appearance, Typhon debuts when the party attacks the Floating Continent, backing up Ultros when he is defeated. Typhon's Snort eventually blows the party off the Blackjack and into a battle with Air Force.
After the end of the world, Ultros is hired as a receptionist at Dragon's Neck Coliseum, and Typhon fights in the arena on his behalf to help him. If the player bets an item of insufficient rarity or value, Typhon will put up an Elixir and battle the player, using Snort on his first turn to end the battle instantly. Note that having this happen does NOT mean the player "loses" in the traditional sense; rather, the item that was bet is returned to the player as though nothing happened.
