 Craft and use Void Vessel to kill it instantly
 If you don’t have it then use damaging items such as (fish scale, etc). You can buy them on Village of Kol, you need at least 11 of them to kill it (2 items slots, pick different items, element doesn’t matter)
 One of your char may died if you’re not able to kill on 1st turn, don’t worry because you can resurrect him/her on 2nd turn and heal it to full.

Resist: Fire (50%), Sleep, Silence, Confuse, Petrify
 Make sure you kill it on 1st turn by chaining blizzaga (this is why Lightning is best friend for this level)
 If you’re not able to kill it on 1st turn, then reduce their health to about 50% and then kill them on 2nd turn. If their health below 50% they will self destruct and bye bye for all your characters :).

 It will always dispel de-buff if it has one, you can exploit this simply by inflicting “any” break every turn to make him waste one action. De-buff every turn!!!
 It will use “-ga” spell on the next turn if you see “Focusing magic power”. Make sure you guard on the next turn or if you have Celes, use her sealing blade on the next turn (use it on last action, unless you want her to cancel your own magic!!).
 It always use graviga when its health reaches a certain point (70%, 50%, 30%). Counter this by curaja and cura (you can craft cura easily).
 Don’t be afraid to use elixir on this battle.
