How to beat the final five bosses in Final Fantasy VII
Proud Clod and Jamar Armor
Well, if you’re asking me what the heck a ‘Proud Clod’ is, I have absolutely no clue! All I can say is, in the Final Fantasy VII universe, it means ‘big robot that barely does damage and is soon-to-be scrap metal.’ This boss is easy! Materia Jammer kind of sucks (disables your material), but other than that, the battle’s a piece of cake! Just use your summoning powers at the beginning of the battle and use your magics as long as you can. Your HP will most likely be fine for a good portion of the battle. The only time you’ll really need to worry about it is when he gets ready to use his laser on you. Other than that, though, just wallop this thing for a while and you’re good.
Am I the only one who really wanted to beat this guy up, or what?? He’s annoyed me throughout the entire game! Finally, it’s our chance to shut him up!
He can summon a few friends, and he can do it infinity times, so just focus your efforts on Hojo. After you do enough damage to him, he’ll become something even crazier.
He’ll now have some kind of biological issues that make him more dangerous to you!
Ribbons are a great item to have for this battle, but they aren’t completely necessary. Again, just focus on the main Hojo form. Once in his last form, watch out for his combo attacks and Slow. You can also be poisoned from his touch, so take care of that as it happens. Just continue to cure yourself and you’ll surely finish off this creep!
JENOVA – Synthesis
Actually, you shouldn’t really expect much difficulty here. There’s only one more boss after this one, and she’s still incredibly easy. Actually, I think this form is easier than her last form! Anyway, You’re gonna want to use your summon materia at the beginning of this battle. Ultima works great after that, and let’s hope you get to use a few limit breaks. You might need to worry about your HP, but there’s a strong chance you won’t even have to glance at it. Just be sure to keep her tentacles from coming back.
When she is in critical condition, there will be a countdown. When it reaches zero, Jenova will cast her own Ultima spell. This will end the battle. Try as hard as you can to kill her before this, though, because when she ends the battle on her own terms, you don’t collect any of that handy EXP or AP! **NOTE** If you have Knights of the Round summon, this battle is even more of a breeze! If you do not have this materia and wish to find it, have a look at my articles concerning the subject.
Get ready for a great battle after this!
For this battle, I really just like to throw in some bad sportsmanship and use Knights of the Round. But I’ll provide some proper strategy, as well.
First off, depending upon how easily and quickly you dispatched of the last boss, you may have been given the chance to form into three parties. I’ve fought this boss with one, two, AND three parties, so I’ll give guidance in each scenario:
Three: Of course, use your Summon magic, Ultima, and spells of similar ilk. You’ll no doubt get a chance to use your limit breaks, too. When you damage different body parts well enough, you’ll have the choice to change to another party and attack with them. You can only have three parties if you have gotten both the secret characters. Otherwise, you would simply have two people missing from one group.
You’ll also notice that only one group has the option to attack the little yellow tummy orb Sephiroth has. This group needs to have some great summon materia, so make sure you optimize your characters equipment in a fairly even manner. The battle will end if one team is defeated. Here, you don’t just get knocked out for later revival. Sephiroth will actually kill you! So be careful! The good news, though, is that once that privileged team damages the yellow core enough, Cloud will finally be able to damage it, as well. So at first chance, jump on the opportunity to switch to Cloud and start tearing that thing to shreds!
Two: This strategy is very similar to the one above, except you need to choose your characters wisely and then leave one or two out. This is because you did not get one or both of the secret characters, Yuffie and Vincent. Anyway, same deal here. Deal some big damage in the beginning, hurt a body part enough and you can switch.
One: For some, this is the most challenging way to beat him, but for others, it might just be the easiest! It depends on many factors, including how well-rounded your fighters are. Maybe you have three great fighters and the rest suck, or maybe the rest are just as good as your main party. It’s your game! I can’t speak for you!
Anyway, when you only have one party, you don’t get the benefit of having your summon usage reset, so you may get to a point where you aren’t allowed to summon any more creatures. This always sucks. Ultima is a great way to make up for it, though. Now keep your HP up and damage Sephiroth’s core enough to end the battle.
**Note** Sephiroth can heal himself quite a bit during this battle, but as I said before, when you switch parties, your summon allowance resets. Optimize your battle strategy according to your own weaknesses and strengths!**
Of Course you don’t get to save! That would be too easy! No, you’re now launched into another battle with Sephiroth. If you don’t have fast characters with really high HP and defense, you’re in for a lot of trouble. For the most part, this is an easy battle, but then Sephiroth does his long-winded SuperNova and Pale Horse attacks. Plus, his physical attacks are incredibly strong by this point, too! You’re going to pull out all the stops with protection. Use Wall, Haste, Revive any downed allies, and cure any status ailments. Now, throw out your best summons and magics. They’ll do you a lot of good here, especially since he’s a flying boss, and that can keep some characters from hitting him. KEEP YOUR HP UP! Your limit breaks should come quickly and often, as well. That’s very good. The first time I beat this boss, I had Vincent in my party. We had just gotten Sephiroth’s HP down about halfway and then he killed Cloud and Red XIII. Of course, I had Vincent in limit break mode, so I couldn’t do anything. Luckily, Chaos (Vincent’s final Limit Break) was just barely able to finish him off.
**Note** Sephiroth’s statistics and such are dependent on Cloud’s. If your Cloud has a low level, Sephiroth might not be so hard to take care of. If, however, Cloud’s level is maxed out, Sephiroth will be quite difficult. Good luck!!**
After Cloud uses Omni-slash to finally rid the world of Sephiroth, (YAY!), you’ve finished the game! Enjoy the ending and start it all over again! There’s so much more to experience! Be sure to read my other articles! They’re full of tips, tricks, etc. for this wonderful series!
