    Attacked with all my might, ressurected all wounded members as soon as possible. I remember it being more difficult boss on my first playthrough.

    EDIT: I thought this thread was about Atomos....

    I just attacked it until it died because I am a pro gamer.

    Having a nap and then coming back works much better than you think it should.

    There are a few difficult random encounters in Final Fantasy IV that can be taken care of easily with status effects. One of the dragon type monsters in the Lunar Subterrane is vulnerable to Stop.

    I don't think I ever knew that, either. In most FFs I almost never use negative status effects, so it's easy to forget about them.

    GameFAQs. Or grinding. Or any other strategy that starts with "g".

    Yes. All of the status effects in Final Fantasy IV and Final Fantasy V with the exception of Poison, possibly, have areas where they prove useful.

    Interestingly, there is a bug in the Gameboy Advance version of Final Fantasy V that allows you to defeat Gogo the Mimic by silencing him with Silence Sword and attacking him constantly. His script will become bugged and he cannot punish you with Meteor, allowing for you to truly defeat him without having to play his game.

    In GBA version you also get an item from him if you beat him the hard way, was it Tiger Mask or something?

    Yeah, you get a Tiger Mask for beating Gogo. I just saw the video again the other day and I always thought it was really weird as he starts spouting various battle messages if you wail on him long enough.

    Here is a link to the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0RG9GAaO77M

    i dunno that seems legit.

    you try and hit him with a silence spell. based on the opening battle speech, he's egotistical as all hell! he mocks what is probably the most worthless spell in your arsenal and is offended on a personal level. due to that, he just starts rambling like Billy Bob Thornton in Sling Blade. since going into the fight there is a pretty good chance he still likes oxygen, his incessant end of MGS2-esque rambling causes him to drown in Walze Tower.

    that's why you get the tiger mask AND the shard. you outsmarted him the other way.

    I'll stick to just FFV

    Archeoaevis - Death Claw works on it's first stage Level 5 Death during it's revived stage

    Purobolos - Use a party of Beastmaster's with Control and make them all use Self Destruct.

    Ramuh - Either use Silence to cripple him or just outright cripple him with Blue Spell Death Claw which will allow you to kill him in two moves.

    Sandworm - Kill him with one cast of Blue Spell Aqua Rake

    Adamantoise - Level 5 Death

    Soul Gun Launcher and his Gunners - Level 5 Death and then just pistol whip the Soul GunLauncher with Bolt magic

    Chimera Brain/Manticore - Death Claw screws him over... Stop as well

    Tyranasaur - Phoenix Down

    Carbuncle - Summon Catablepas

    Ex-Death - Use Staves of Light to cast Holy on him, doesn't outright kill him but makes this a really easy fight...

    Shield Dragon - Control and let it kill itself.

    Omniscient - Berserk him to cripple him.

    Phobos , Nerid, and Triton - A party of Bard's with Requiem will destroy them, or you can use Odin...

    Bahamut - Stop will sometimes work

    Leviathan - Coral Rings will make this boss a push over

    Azulmagia - Ether punish him with Bio, or use Self-Destruct on him so he can learn it and use it on you...

    Alte Roite/Jura Aevis - Use Berserk on Alte Roite and it cannot transform into Jura Aevis.

    Twin Tania - Summon Odin when it starts charging up Giga Flare.
