IX

Zorn is a boss in Final Fantasy IX fought in Alexandria Castle along with Thorn.

StatsEdit

Battle Edit

The battle will end when one of them is defeated. Zorn and Thorn take turns charging up the other to cast a powerful spell on the party, but if the "charged" twin is attacked, the charge is canceled and the spell will not be cast.

Strategy Edit

As the player has a time limit for the fight, it is best to target Thorn instead of Zorn, since he has less HP.
