How to Beat Bosses 1, 2, and 3 in Final Fantasy VII
So, this should get you started in the game at a fairly good pace.
When you encounter the first boss (itís that big mechanical scorpion thing called Guard Scorpion) youíll know it by the music that plays. Get used to it. This music is going to be the standby for all the boss fights you will take part in. I, personally, love this music. Itís got such a nostalgic quality for me that I can enjoy many memories of Final Fantasy VII at the first riff.
ÖAnywayÖNow that Iím done reminiscing, letís get to talking about the fights.
The Guard Scorpion truly isnít tough. Heís just got one attack that can really hurt you. His normal attack is pretty easy to withstand, so long as you cure yourself when you need it. After a few hits on this mechanical arachnid, heíll start shaking and then Cloud will warn Barrett about it. DO NOT ATTACK HIM NOW. Heíll counter with a Laser Ray shot which will do a lot of damage to your characters. Just heal and guard yourself for now and attack when itís once again safe. After a few more hits in the safe time zone, heíll be gone.
The second boss battle is done with the Air Buster.
The Air Buster is the huge machine that the Shinra president chucks at you. Your party will be split with Barrett and Tifa on one side, while you (Cloud) will be on the other side. This is good in some ways and bad in others. One way that it is a 50/50 benefit is that he canít attack all three of you at a time, but you canít cure all three of you at the same time, either. Now, the machine will spin around to attack the person hitting it, so if you need to cure a character, attack with someone on the opposite side in order to heal that low-HP guy.
There isnít any real attack strategy, though. Itís all about attacking and not dying. When he damages you enough to raise your limit to breaking point, use them. When it is your turn and you donít need to heal, attack. Itís as simple as that. Heíll blow up and Cloud will be separated from the party.
Your next battle wonít even come up until a few events later in the game. First, you get Aeris in the party, then, you escort her home, then you sleep, then you escort her back to the sector seven slums, then you see Tifa leave the area, then you go to Wall Market, thenÖ.Well, after the Don Corneo stuff, youíll be battling the APS
Just make sure you heal your party throughout the battle. At the end of it all, the APS will use his Sewer Tsunami attack and, although it damages (an ultimately kills) him, it is his last chance to kill you. So make sure he canít and keep your HP up. Throughout the battle, heíll use his Reverse Tsunami attack which comes behind you guys and does less damage to him, but still hurts you. Just use fire attacks on him when you can and use Cloudís limit breaks to damage him. If you get it built up, use Aerisí Limit breaks to heal your party for free. And so, as I said earlier, when he dies, he will attack you one last time and it could kill you. Just watch out. Good luck!
