The Ushumgal Subjugator is a boss in Final Fantasy XIII. It is fought in Palumpolum twice by the player party, at different locations.


First encounterEdit

Guess we'll have to talk about this later!

Snow and Hope fight the Ushumgal Subjugator first on the apartment rooftops. The boss remains in an aerial state throughout the battle, mainly attacking with the Fire-based Napalm. Hope's Barfire can neutralize this threat.


A good strategy, albeit a slow one, would be to have three main paradigms: Arcane Defense (SEN/RAV), Building Block (SEN/SYN) and Lifeguard (SEN/MED). As a Sentinel, the player should select Provoke, then Steelguard, then Vendetta, then Steelguard again. Hope will do whatever is appropriate for his current role.

It is best to start the battle with Libra, and do four Provokes to grab the Subjugator's attention before switching to Building Block so Hope will buff Snow while Snow keeps the Subjugator busy. Afterward the player should switch either to Lifeguard or Arcane Defense (in case Hope needs healing), and keep using the ability sequence above. However, it takes a while to defeat in this manner.

AI scriptEdit

Turn 1 - Napalm
Turn 2 - Napalm
Turn 3 - Napalm

Turn 5 - Tail Hammer

Second EncounterEdit

Always the hero. You want to die? You can't! I won't let you!

After the cutscene, Hope begins the battle alone, but after his health is reduced to 1 HP, or a certain amount of time has passed, Lightning and Fang join the party and the proper battle begins.


It is imperative that Hope uses Protect and Shell on the party during the first few seconds of the fight.

A certain strategy is to create the paradigm known as Combat Clinic (Fang as a Sentinel, and both Lightning and Hope as Medics). When the Boss starts to use Targeting for its Pinpoint Beam and subsequent Photon Blaster, the party can shift to Combat Clinic and provoke the boss into attacking Fang. When she is hit, Hope and Lightning will heal her, and hopefully keep her alive long enough to survive the attack. Once the attack is over, and everyone is healed, the party can return to Relentless Assault to stagger the boss.

Among the earliest written documents from Mesopotamia are records of land sales or grants, often carved in stone with associated images, perhaps for public display. The Sumerian inscription on the Stele of Ushumgal records a transaction involving three fields, three houses, and some livestock. Ushumgal, a priest of the god Shara, and his daughter, are the central figures of the transaction, but because of the archaic script it is not clear whether Ushumgal is buying, selling, or granting these properties.

In foreign translations, Ushumgal is written as Ushmugal.
