Name HP AP Drops Prize for Unlocking Area
Stratoavis 310,000 8,000 Amulet x4 Stamina Tonic x99 Besaid Island
Tips
Simply Cast Hastega, and keep using Quick Hit and it should be defeated easily


Name HP AP Drops Prize for Unlocking Area
Malboro Menace 640,000 8,000 Mana Tonic x4 Poison Fang x99 Kilika Island
Tips
Make sure that you have Confuse Proof and Poison Proof armor before starting the battle. This one isn't as simple as Marlboro Menace tends to cast a lot of status effects which can be a problem. As soon as you can bring out an Aeon (Anima or Magus Sisters if you have them) and use their overdrives followed by normal attacks and it should be defeated. Its best to use Aeons if you don't have Ribbon as they are immune to status effects


Name HP AP Drops Prize for Unlocking Area
Kottos 440,000 8,000 Healing Spring x40 Soul Spring x99 Mi'ihen Highroad
Tips
He has the counter ability, so high defense is needed. Cast Hastega as soon as you can and keep using quick hits. Have Wakka and Kimahri in your party as they have the Evade & Counter ability.


Name HP AP Drops Prize for Unlocking Area
Coeurlregina 380,000 8,000 Shining Gem x6 Candle of Life x99 Mushroom Rock Road
Tips
This will be hard as it often casts Doom, Confuse, Death and Curse on your party. You can avoid all of these besides Curse by summoning an Aeon as they are immune to all other statuses. Curse will mean that their overdrive gauge wont rise, however you wont need it as its HP isn't too high. Just keep using the special attack of the Aeons and it should go down in no-time


Name HP AP Drops Prize for Unlocking Area
Jormungand 520,000 8,000 Supreme Gem x4 Petrify Grenade x99 Djose Highroad
Tips
You must have Stoneproof for all your party members as it can Petrify your party. Once you have prepared yourself against his petrification attacks you can just use Quick Hits to defeat it. It shouldn't be much of a problem.


Name HP AP Drops Prize for Unlocking Area
Cactuar King 100,000 8,000 Blessed Gem x6 Chocobo Wing x99 Thunder Plains
Tips
Use Aim a few times as he has high evasion. Cactuar King has a low HP however its attacks are deadly. If your characters haven't broken HP limit then one character will be KO'd every time it attacks. Auto-Phoenix is a must, and you shouldn't bother healing. One overdrive from Wakka (Attack Reels) or Tidus (Blitz Ace) should do the trick.


Name HP AP Drops Prize for Unlocking Area
Espada 280,000 8,000 Rename Card x2 Shining Gem x60 Macalania
Tips
Deathproof is a must, every time it counters its attack causes death. If your protected against it then this battle shouldn't be too hard, just use Quick Hit and heal when needed. Use aeons if you want to make a quick job of it


Name HP AP Drops Prize for Unlocking Area
Abyss Worm 480,000 8,000 Stamina Tonic x2 Shadow Gem x99 Bikanel Island
Tips
Not a hard fight, just cast Hastega and start attacking. The biggest problem for this fiend is its HP, if you just keep Quick Hitting away then you should win in no time. Don't worry when it swallows one of your characters it will spit it out after a bit of damage


Name HP AP Drops Prize for Unlocking Area
Chimerageist 120,000 8,000 Return Sphere x2 Farplane Wind x60 Calm Lands
Tips
Just cast Hastega on yourself and attack with Delay Turn and Quick Hits. You should be able to delay its turn and increasing the amount of hits that you get in between his turns making quick work of this boss


Name HP AP Drops Prize for Unlocking Area
Don Tonberry 480,000 8,000 Farplane Wind x6 Silver Hourglass x40 Cavern of Stolen Fayth
Tips
Auto-Phoenix is a must, as is viewing the Quick AP section before fighting this boss. It counters all attacks with Karma which can kill you in one go, it's best to use characters that don't have much Killings on their conscious as this will reduce the damage done by karma considerably. Use your aeons if you can and you should make light work of Don Tonberry


Name HP AP Drops Prize for Unlocking Area
Catoblepas 550,000 8,000 Three Stars x2 Blossom Crown Mt. Gagazet & Gagazet Mountain Cave
Tips
You will need to keep Protect, Shell and Haste on your party members as all times, once you think your about to kill him just heal your party and then strike the final blow. It will cast Ultima (which cant be reflected) as its final attack before dieing which shell should cut down to half the damage


Name HP AP Drops Prize for Unlocking Area
Abaddon 380,000 8,000 Mana Tablet x2 Lunar Curtain x99 Inside Sin
Tips
Magic Attacks are a no no, it has Auto-Reflect so magic attacks will be reflected back at you, all except Ultima that is. Keep using Ultima and be sure to have Shell on your team as it tends to use Level 3 elemental magics. Armour which absorbs elemental attacks is a MUST. It can be defeated after a lot of double-casting Ultima and then using Copycat


Name HP AP Drops Prize for Unlocking Area
Vorban 630,000 8,000 Friend Sphere x2 Designer Wallet x60 Omega Dungeon
Tips
He has a strong defense which should be no match for Auron's Banishing Blade overdrive. It's best to defeat him as soon as possible as it counter-attacks with mortar which can do around 6000 damage. Using Wakka's and Tidus's overdrives is a good way to do this
