Battle Edit

It uses a variety of powerful elemental attacks, many of which hit the entire party. Fortunately, at the point in the game they are fought, they have low HP and can quickly be killed with the party's strongest spells. It has no elemental weaknesses or resistances, so any spells will work.

Coliseum setup Edit

Bet Celestriad for Dragon Horn
Bet Gauntlet for Thunder Shield
Bet Mirage Vest for Red Jacket
Bet Red Jacket for Red Jacket
Bet Scorpion Tail for Final Trump

Gigavolt, Aqua Breath, and Blaze are all evadable, but are better off absorbed or nullified with the Paladin's Shield, Minerva Bustier or a combination of other equipment. Thunder Shield will let the wearer absorb Lightning and nullify Wind, while a Red Jacket will let the wearer absorb Fire. Using Gogo or Relm's Sketch will let the player use Gigavolt (25%) or Aqua Breath (75%).

Etymology Edit

Kefka's Tower was built atop Vector, the Gestahlian Empire's former seat of power, and thus some enemies allude to it with their names. In molecular cloning, a vector is a DNA molecule used as a vehicle to artificially carry foreign genetic material into another cell, where it can be replicated and/or expressed. A vector containing foreign DNA is termed recombinant DNA.

The chimera is a fire-breathing monster, one of the offspring of Typhon and Echidna. It is commonly represented with a lion's head, a goat's body, and a serpent's tail in Greek mythology. In modern usage, the term chimera is often taken to mean any sort of hybrid between two or more species.

Vectagoyle and Vectgoyl is a portmanteau of "Vector" and "Gargoyle". Gargoyles were initially ordinary stone statues built on rooftops to let rainwater above flow down to the ground through certain paths. The statues were usually carved as monsters and strange creatures, which later spawned the belief that gargoyles are the guardians of the buildings they live in.
