How TF do you win against this?
50% of the time, Big Bang one-shots Rydia.
Not that it matters much, Bahamut doesn't work, can't rely on Ashura, and every spell I use will be countered with Flare.

This is the JP version, entire team around lvl 50-53

    Just don't revive Rydia and use everyone else.

    Zeromus is a notorious middle finger to Rydia. Big Bang is the least of her issues in that fight, his big thing is he counters everything she does except attack.
    Its best to just leave 3 people alive to keep heals steady. Rosa is a must, and your choice of Cecil/Kain/Edge.

      Is there something wrong with your Bahamuts? He doesn't counter it and the alst time I checked, he works on the SNES FFII/IV cart.

    I honestly don't remember having any major trouble, but you do seem underleveled. I think 60ish is more the right range. Did you get various good items like the adament armor? And you should use haste right away then have edge steal a lot, he should get a DkMatter item and that cuts the damage on Big Bang IIRC. Then you reveal the true form with the crystal. Then it's just spamming your best attacks with rosa healing every single time until you win and that's it. If you're leveled enough and have good enough items you should win. If not you need to deal with that. Though normally I'd say if you got that far and beat dark bahamut and all the other bosses leading up you should be good to go.

    Good luck the ending was enjoyable. Some anons who've played more recently then my ancient fan translated JP hard SNES emu playthrough might have better advice then me. Dunno if they introduced any new options in the GBA or remakes.

    If you get him with nuke or holy after he shakes he will counter with nuke and his big bang will be weakened quite a bit. Definitely possible in 50s, but 60s will be easier

      Between Big Bang and Black Hole, the game isn't even tryng to hide the final fight is a numbers game and you're expected to grind until you can survive and heal through Big Bang.

      though stealing the item before using the crystal weakens a lot of his attacks including bb, definitely helpful. If you can't get through even weak bb yeah you don't have the numbers and that's that there isn't anything tricky or strategic it's just a slugfest.

    Did someone actually struggle with what appears to be the butchered american SNES version?

      It's not, it's patched to work like the JP version, including stats, skills and items, Google "Namingway Mod"

    Play the superior PSP version and replace shitters like Edge and Kain with Cid and Yang. If you could replace Cecil I would with Edward. He's actually not that bad once you get his exclusive gear.

      I played the entire game with it on 3 (The default).
      Only times it was an issue were Odin (Had to use the Kitchen Knife on that one) and Demon Wall, which are, by definition, DPS check battles.

      There's some agility manipulation you can do as well, done by lowering Cecil's speed to 11 (If I remember correctly) and making all other party members as high as possible, which causes them to get a fair amount of turns before Cecil and the enemies do. It works because the game tries to normalize the combat speed by making agility relative, so it takes Cecil's agility and makes a comparison to everyone else before determining their actual speeds.

    Cast berserk on Cecil and let him go to town on him. As a bonus, you skip the second phase of the fight due to the way it's programmed if you do that. Alternatively, cast reflect on yourself and bounce White/Flare off of it, which avoids his counter-attack and bypasses his HP restore mid-fight.

    The other trick is to cast a spell on him just before he uses big bang. Due to the way his script works, he has one action just before using big bang which is a silent "focus" like move that doubles the damage of his next magic attack. By forcing him to waste it with a counter-flare, big bang will hit far weaker.
