TM: Ribbon (Prevent all status ailments),
[+] Kefka is one of the best mages in the game. One of the highest Mag Parameter.
[+] Heartless Angel is very good for INT Colosseum, as the normal enemies health is quite high. Most of enemies are affected by this spell.
[+] Hyperdrive is very strong spell (probably the most powerful singel target magic damage). You can easily deal more than 300,000 Damage on enemy to get the Conqueror Trophy. Visit THIS PAGE for more info about it
[+] His LB is very good if you’re utilizing an elemental attack because it will lower enemies’ resistance.
[-] Lack fire elements attack (only have blizzard and thunder element).
[-] Need to be maxed (5 stars lvl 80) to be really useful (unlike other mages who have at least three elements in the beginning of the game, so they can exploit enemy’s weakness)
[-] His spells consume large amount of MP, make sure you bring turbo ether !!
 You can equip Kefka with Fire rod to give him fira spell, which is very useful if you find the enemy that weak against fire (many enemies on this game, especially reaper type).
 If you don’t have Hero’s ring to boost his magic, you can equip it with Cat’s Bell (+20 MP and 1 def), it’s really useful because Kefka’s Hyper drive cost a lot of MP.
 Drain can be an alternative spell when you haven’t obtained Hyperdrive and enemy is resist against Thunder and blizzard elements.
 He’s a good candidate for meteor spell (Golbez TM reward)
 Magic and MP should be his top priority, Spirit is kinda useless because he’s not a healer.
 Ramuh, He gives you a nice boost of Magic and MP. I don’t recommend Shiva because it will be waste for Shiva High Spr Boost.
Kefka is the best “pure” mages in this game, his status will exceed Golbez and Exdeath in terms of magic. Other mages don’t learn super powerful spell like hyperdrive which make them kinda useless on the long battle like trial and Colosseum battle.
