XII

The Tyrant is a boss in Final Fantasy XII. It is found in Giruvegan, guarding the Way Stone that leads to the Great Crystal. It is also fought in the Zodiac versions' Trial Mode at Stage 55 along with three Piscodaemons where the Artemis Bow (uncommon) and Gastrophetes (rare) can be stolen from it.

Bestiary entry Edit

Page 1: Observations Edit

Being a guardian beast of Giruvegan, set by the masters of the ancient city to guard the lowermost level against intrusion.
Though originally a variety of wyvern, potent Mist has transformed its wings into sharp hook-like protrusions, a shadow of their original size.
Its undying loyalty makes the Tyrant a formidable barrier to entry into the ruin's depths.

StatsEdit

Battle Edit

The player cannot use Technicks in this battle, so the party cannot steal from the enemy. Tyrant focuses its attacks on one target at a time. Tyrant is weak to Ice, and it does not have the typical defense increase on low health bosses usually have. It is susceptible to Confuse.

StrategyEdit

If the player has the Trident or the Icebrand, they may prove useful.

Bubble or Bubble Belt are useful. The player can also summon Mateus. It is best to save healers' MP since the party cannot use Charge.

When Tyrant's HP falls below 50%, the party should cast Blizzaga to take advantage of its weakness. Its power can be boosted by equipping Glacial Staff. The Nihopalaoa + Smelling Salts (Nu Khai Sand in Zodiac versions) trick can be used to buy time (to heal, buff, etc) if needed.

If the player has a low enough level character, the Accuracy underflow bug can be used to continuously inflict Confuse on the Tyrant, making the battle trivial.

Other appearancesEdit

Final Fantasy XIVEdit

XIV The Tyrant boss also appears as the second boss in Pharos Sirius introduced in patch 2.1. Its appearance from Final Fantasy XII is mostly unchanged.
