Final Fantasy XIII-2 How to Defeat Twilight Odin Tips

Twilight Odin
Hp 706.000

Employs powerful lightning based attack
Healed by lightning damage
Delivers devastating attack

Recommended paradigm:
Relentless assault: Commando and Ravager x2
Synergist, medic, commando
Salvation: Medic x3

It’s good to equip accessory that reduce lightning damage (Ex: Spark ring, entite ring, lightning aegis,etc). At the beginning of this battle cast protectga, shellga, vigilaga, and veilga on your party members. Protect is really helpful in this battle since his physical attack is quite powerful.

Tips: You can obtain Lightning Aegis from Circuitron on Bresha ruins 300 AF. It makes your characters absorb lightning damage but reduce your ATB rate.

I suggest you to have about 3000 HP beforeย enteringย this battle. His physical attacks tend to attack multiple targets on the same time, this is why protectga is really important in this battle. You can have a sentinel role if you get a trouble when facing him. Once you have staggered him, use Ultima Arrow => your monster feral link (assuming it’s attack type) => Meteor Javelin to deal significant damage to him.

You need to fight him twice if you want to obtain him as your monster (Vile Peaks 010 AF => Vile Peaks 200 AF).

    I have already beaten the first odin in 10af but I can’t seem to find the 2nd odin in 200af. For some reason, odin is not standing where he is supposed to but the exclamation mark (the mark that you can see when the game wants you to locate or follow something) is there. It frustrates me! Help!!!!

      we have the same problem! did u find already how we can fight odin in 200 af! pls tell me wat to do. tnx

    • Roboman says:

      Odin typically has a countdown to his Zantusken move in FF, which always murders you. In ff8 it literally cuts your whole party in half. In 13-2 however it seems to be after the 2nd stagger instead of on a time limit. So you have to kill him in 2 staggers. It can be done without crazy powerful monsters. I did it with a fully leveled Dragoon. Took 4 attempts using various monster combos and paridigm sets but eventually i settled on Pulse night as a sentinel when charging his Chain gauge with Rav/rav/sentinel green chocobo to heal me with Rav/com/med and Dragoon to murder his Chain gauge with com/com/com. I also started with Syn/syn/sen and then sab/sab/med to buff my characters and debuff him.

    So far, Odin is still bending me over with that last move. Once he gets going on that there is no bouncing back, and my characters are well leveled.
    Leave it to Square to make a boss that fights like a button masher; spam the same attack an ungodly amount of times until it’s dead.
    How am I supposed to beat that!?

    • noobbgodlike says:

      don’t let him do that move, In my video he didn’t do it. Defeat him quickly is the key. Make sure your monster is strong (golden chocobo, cichu, etc)

      • Mina says:

        Yeah, I’m going to have to reevaluate my monsters. I’m using regular Chocobo at the moment, simply because up until now he hasn’t given me any grief and he’s well leveled.
        I’m currently taking the time to be a grind whore and level the heck out of everything, not that there is much leveling left to do.
        Where can I find the Golden Chocobo or Cichu?

        • noobbgodlike says:

          hmm about chicu, just google it ” where I can find cichu ff 13-2″ you’ll find it :D. Cichu is very awesome, level it up to the max and the game will become just a breeze :D. Make sure you train it and don’t be deceived by its appearance.

        • Mina says:

          I found him in Archylte. Yeah, it is really strong! Thanks for all of the help! Going to give Odin another go after leveling up Chichu some more, it’s only level 40 at the moment.
          Wish me luck! ๐Ÿ˜€

        • noobbgodlike says:

          with Maxed cichu you don’t need any luck to defeat him XD. Make sure you give cichu the right type of food (the one that give physical damage boost;str)

    • leah says:

      i have the same problem i tryed and tried but it ends the same way all the time I’m going crazy i almost kill him but then i have full hp he does his special move i die!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Boo says:

    I am on the second fight with this b**tard,& I read the second battle is supposed to be easier? ARE THEY F**KING KIDDING, he does this move where he spins in the air & just kills serah & noel, serah has 4076hp & noel is 5535hp, & i have been using rav/com/med…. rav/rav/rav….. med/com/med etc everything i could possibly kick this douches ass with & yet he still kills me i stagger him alot & get him near enough down to dead, but still hes kicking my ass, any other ideas lol?

    • Boo says:

      ive buffered my people up, they have like lvl 99 on rav & com, they have accesories to give them higher resistance & yet im still blooming dying

    • Boo says:

      Even been using the arrow thing & javelin move to get him lower & still I DIE

    • noobbgodlike says:

      you’re not using synergyst??? Its bravery and protective spell will reduce his damage greatly :D. See the video to get an idea how I have defeated him ๐Ÿ˜€

    • dannyR says:

      i used rav rav med to get him in critical mode, froststrike helps well then when the bar is full use commando commando med and hit him senseless with ruinaga if med pet dies (try to stall ressing him till bar is reset if possible) use syn med med and in the meanwhile cast protect and shell on everybody.. i had to do it individually since syn was only lvl 8 this way i could do it so fast that he didnt even got to kill all my characters with that move since he did not get to it

  4. Neonbahamut says:

    i fought twilight odin and died many times cos that finishing move i survived firs but he did another zantsetsu. but i managed to kill him when i killed him just 2 stagger. i am thinking that there is some kind time limit befor he does it or then there is stagger limit.;D i hope this helps to anser someone. good luck for you whit that

  5. ์‚ฌ์น˜ says:

    Do u guys know how to defeat raspatil?.. If you know wut I’m talking about.. Help
    It’s such a pain

    • noobbgodlike says:

      max level on all characters, use cichu as your monster. You’ll win. That’s why I don’t make any guide again for this game, you can simply use cichu and everything are easy.

  6. CrazyDude says:

    Have a paragadim with a sab,syn,rav and com,com,med and when he has those breif periods of standing still switch to cerberus to stagger him

  7. Geo Stelar says:

    I was expecting someone who made the guide have no idea what the hell kind of frustration having to fight zantetsuken brings.There is no strategy against the move! And don’t you dare say “level up!” My characters both are level 99, everything! Except for Noel’ ravager, but that doesn’t matter. I’m sorry, but the first video is most likely helpful.I have tried to the ends of the earth to beat this guy, and I will beat him. But don’t just say level up, because that only works in hack-and-slash games.

    • noobbgodlike says:

      LOL, it’s not that I don’t want to create the strategy for zantetsuken, but he never uses that move against me. The only solution I can give you is to train Ochu ๐Ÿ˜€ he’ll kill this bastard very quick ๐Ÿ˜€

  8. jonathan says:

    odin 2 has ben using an atack that takes 13000+ damige when he get that black ora

  9. Beth says:

    Perfect, i just found out there is NO way to beat him after his special move, mostly because he just does it repeatedly. I love you Square Cnix

  10. Beth says:

    Yea me to, after a while he gets really tough to deal with. I’m guessing hes one of those monsters that is tougher if you are higher level? Like how the orphan released that big attack to take away 98% of overall health. lmao. My stats: Serah-3928 health Noel-4863 health. God help this creature my angry mode is on.

    • noobbgodlike says:

      no, he doesn’t get any tougher on higher level (see my video if you don’t believe). Maybe your monsters is underleveled or just sucks?? ๐Ÿ˜€ try to use golden chocobo/chocobo/ behemoth. For medic use flanitor, his feral link is really good.

    By the way, thanks for creating this final fantasy 13-2 guide. It was really helpful. It’s really hard to find a really good guide for this game, so I appreciate this guide a lot. Thanks!

    I need help finding all the fragments in order to unlock the improved moogle hunt skill and the anti gravity jump skill. I think I’m just missing one more in new bohdum 3 af, but I can’t find it. I already did the side quest there (the one where the lady asks you to find the first aid kit). Also, I’ve already completed all the side quests at bresha ruins 300 af. I’ve also finished the wide quest at yascha massif 100 af, and most recently, I just defeated twilight odin (should be very powerful since it’s an eidolin) at vile peaks 10 af and 200 af, but now I’m stuck and don’t know where to go next. How do I unlock episode 5 and unlock undying world? Also, at which point In episode 5 do I get to unlock the improved moogle hunt skill so that I can find the graviton cores? Thanks in advance!

    • noobbgodlike says:

      you’ll get improved moogle hunt automatically throught the storyline, just keep playing ๐Ÿ˜€ (you only need 5 graviton cores to continue; use reset timeline later to claim your chaos weapon). anti grav jump will be obtained automatically thourgh the storyline too but you need to visit chocolady to obtain it (it will be mentioned on my guide when it can be obtained)

    • Snow Villers says:

      hey Noob question can u also give a recommendation of monsters to use i use orion dragoon and my flainitor whenever he gets close to death he use zanketsun move on me and im wondering i see what shit lightining went through

      • noobbgodlike says:

        Use max level cichu, your problem will be solved. You can obtain cichu by using moogle throw on archylte steppe on the flower bed in the middle of that area.

    In one of the youtube video walkthroughs on twilight odin, on the way, when Serah was jumping (without riding a chocobo) for some reason, she was able to jump and then glide in the air for a few seconds (no wings), and I just wanted to know how she did that and where can I get that ability?

  14. sazhlookalik says:

    same here he uses that zankuetan(spell check that) attack and it takes 9999 theres no way any of them can survive want do i do

    • noobbgodlike says:

      zantetsuken?/ He never doing that when fought me. I guess your best solution is to defeat him ASAP. just do some leveling and then challenge him later.

  15. crimson says:

    he uses that attack when you have already destroyed half of his hp. ๐Ÿ™ hes starting to make me mad.

    • noobbgodlike says:

      hmm, I suggest you to level up more then. I never get that kind of attack when fought him. Try to use 3 sentinel and then salvation until he has done that attack (don’t forget to cast protectga, shellga, etc). I can’t re-fight Twilght Odin so I can’t create further strategy against him. what’s your character status?? your monster?? try to capture chichu.. I will list all unusual monster on my next guide. check it on 2-3 days from now ๐Ÿ˜€

  16. Jade says:

    I’m on with the second Odin boss now and have all the appropriate paradigms and accessories. But how the hell are you supposed to survive the attack Odin unleashes that’s like 9999hp damage to each ally?? It’s so frustrating! I guess I might have to change my tactics somewhere.
