Encountering Bahamut Fury

Before taking on the daredevil, Bahamut Fury, you need to know where you can find it. Encountering the boss demands the completion of Chapter 3.

After you have completed Chapter 3 of Crisis Core Reunion, you will be located at Mako reactor 5. Once you have gained control, follow the path on your left that leads you to a ladder. Here, you will unlock a Mail – which will be of treasure princess recruitment – along with Mission 8-4-1.

After unlocking the mail and the mission, the Yuffie series of missions begin. There is a long list of these missions. However, you only need to complete some of them to face Bahamut Fury. The below steps are to be followed for it:

  • Complete chapter 3 and be at the Mako reactor 5. Go towards the ladder placed on your left and unlock Mission 8-4-1.
  • Complete Mission 8-4-1 until Mission 8-4-6. This will unlock the mission 8-5-1.
  • Complete Mission 8-5-1 to Mission 8-5-5. After completing 8-5-5, you will meet Bahamut at the end of 8-5-5.

Now you can take up the battle with Bahamut anytime you like. You only have to reach the chest placed in the Northwestern corner of the area. Open the chest, and the mighty battle with the boss will start.

Before you open the chest and face the boss in a battle, you must know how you will fight with him. Specific considerations should be kept in mind, which are mentioned below.

Fighting Bahamut Fury

You should take care of certain things while fighting Bahamut, and there are some things you should take care of before getting into a fight with the boss. Here are both such ingredients that will not only help you in taking down the boss but that too with relative ease.

Loading The Health Bar

Before the fight, it is wise to equip your player with Barrier or Regen Materia.

Both these aids your HP while fighting the boss. The barrier will reduce the damage you take from Bahamut to half, whereas Regen Materia will replenish your health bar for some time.

Moreover, it would be best to have as high a health bar as you can take into the battle. This will be achieved by loading your stats with VIT and SPR using unique accessories – Aegis Armlets, Shinra Betas, and Tarot Cards.

While in the fight, cast the Wall, Materia, and ensure it does not drop for the entire battle. If you feel your health has descended below a ‘safe limit,’ you should revive it with some Ethers.

The HP tips are the most valuable ones since the boss you are fighting is a giant in terms of his health. It would be best to stack your HP to fight better with him. Later you will also realize how important Healing Wave is to increasing the health while fighting the boss.

Fight From A Safe Distance

Regardless of your fighting style, your best chance of succeeding in a fight with Bahamut fury is by dishing out physical attacks.

You must maintain a certain distance from the boss. The space shall allow you to throw punches at him and damage him while giving you enough time to dodge his moves quickly. Since most of his actions are easy to judge and so, you must be able to jump away just in time.

Use Jumps

About jumping, the Jump Materia is a lifeline in the battle. While attacking the boss, careful use of the jump will allow you to continue your fighting combo for longer. Moreover, you will also be able to dodge many of the attacks thrown toward you.

Watch Out For Exaflare

You should keep attacking Bahamut and gather any damage you can take. An eye must be set for when the boss uses Exaflare. As soon as Exaflare is selected, you should throw your best attacks that cause the most damage to cancel the Exaflare.

Since Exaflare cannot be blocked, throwing all your attacks is a good option to cancel the powerful spell. However, if you have taken the blow from Exaflare, you can always use the Healing Wave to retrieve your lost health.

Use Healing Wave Wisely

Before you encounter the boss, the player receives a call from Aerith. The call motivates the hero and heightens the motions in the DMW (Digital Mind Wave). If you are unaware of DMW, it is a spinning left located at the top left corner of the game.

The game increases Aerith’s chances of appearing in the DMW while the fight with the boss is happening. Aerith has a limit break ability that can be granted using the DMW, which is the Healing Wave.

Healing Wave is a savior in the battle with Bahamut. It will heal your health to complete and maximize your MP and AP. Any damage caused by the enemy is swept, and your player is made invincible for a short duration.

Healing waves should be wisely used. We suggest that you use it right before the Exaflare is launched to negate the effect of Exaflare or right after Exaflare to revive your health from the intense damage taken.

Bahamut Fury Strength

The best way to see a problem before countering it is to look at its numbers. Before you devise a well-planned strategy, you must know what you are against. Bahamut fury is hard to crack, so you must prepare for it thoroughly.

Two things should be looked at in Bahamut. First, Fury’s statistics, and second the attacks it can potentially deliver. After preparing for these two things, the boss can be defeated with relative ease.

To prepare, you need Fury’s numbers. Here are all the statistics of the mighty boss you should keep in mind before having a face-off with him.


The statistics of Fury in Final Fantasy Crisis Core Reunion are as follows:

  • Bahamut Fury has a Level of 20.
  • The boss has a health of 18000. The health increases to 46000 if you play a Hard difficulty game.
  • ATK – 25
  • MAG – 111
  • VIT – 36
  • Gil – 410

Apart from these numbers, another statistical factor is the boss’s resistance. The damage dished out to Fury from elements such as Fire, Ice, and Lightning is half taken by it. Also, it is immune to Gravita. Hence, you are advised not to use this element while facing him.

Potential Attacks

The attacks of Bahamut are what you should especially prepare your mind beforehand. Knowing the attacks will allow you to identify them when you face them and help you ready a counterattack. You will quickly realize the situation and be under control.

  • Wind Slice – This attack involves Bahamut sweeping his arm, which creates a shockwave of wind. The shockwave knocks Zack backward. Wind slice spans a large area; if you are anywhere in it, you will experience the consequences.
  • Cluster Sphere – Bahamut will collect his arms forward and charge up an orb of light in this attack. The orb splits into three different balls and is directed toward your location.
  • Exaflare – This attack can be said to be the deadliest attack of the boss. Exaflare demands Bahamut to jump into the sky and fire an unavoidable beam on earth that hits Zack.
  • Win Scream – Bahamut launches a scream in Win Scream. The scream thrusts Zack backward and deals damage.
  • Wing Missiles – This is also a very threatening attack on Bahamut. The boss firmly grips his feet in rails and releases missiles from his wings.

These attacks can be called beforehand, so you exhibit a block from them. But the most severe attack is the Exaflare. Its capacity to not be blocked anyway makes it the most terrific attack. Apart from Exaflare, wing missiles also are very damaging for the player.
