Convolutions of an Evil Mind
Oi oi...!
Ugh. I got through the optional boss battle with Sephiroth in the most clumsiest way imaginable. ::cringes with utter embarrassment:: Then again, as I have mentioned many times before, my eye-hand coordination sucks total vacuum.

Thank GOD that the infinite life cheat (for Codebreaker) in Kingdom Hearts 2 worked even through Sephiroth's Heartless Angel attack -- the infinite life cheat in the first KH game didn't, which is why I never finished that Sephiroth battle. ::sulk::

Oi. I know the appropriate strategies, but trying to implement them was a whole other matter. My poor Sora spent most of the battle caught up in various combos that undoubtedly would have killed him a thousand times over if not for the infinite hp cheat. ::pets her Codebreaker:: In fact I did the most damage by spamming the hell out of Reflectaga and Magnetega whenever I had any MP -- thank goodness for infinite MP cheats, too! Oh, and a Magic stat of 250+ certainly didn't hurt. ^_- He also had a 250+ Strength stat as well, but I had a ridiculously hard time closing within striking range. ::sigh::

But the chance to watch Cloud and Sephiroth go at it was worth it! *_*

Infinite life cheat?

Do you mean just going into a drive to get full life? or is there some actual trick?

I mean using code for a cheat device (in this case, Codebreaker). ^_^

Oh if only I used cheatcodes and YouTube worked. *heartbroken*

A few little hints...

I could never get MY Infinite HP code to work! //sulk//

Here's a few bits of advice I've learned if you ever get up the courage to try it WITHOUT the cheat (I know they saved MY @$$!):

1) Pay attention to the top of the onscreen menu. The INSTANT it says to press the triangle, FOR GOD'S SAKE PRESS THE TRIANGLE!!!!! ESPECIALLY AT THE VERY FIRST BEGINNING OF THE FIGHT!!!!! Sephiroth STARTS OFF WITH that 13-hit combo thing, and you CAN'T! DODGE! IT!

On the other hand, you CAN block it... //sneer// Even better, when you do manage to block, Seph needs a sec to recuperate, and he's WIIIIIIIIIIIIDE open......... //sneer evolves into s#!%-eating grin//

2) Slide Dash and Aerial Recovery will very quickly become your best friends in this fight. Slide Dash lets you close the distance to your opponent in a hurry, and Aerial Recovery, as the name states, lets you recover and regain control in midair, instead of waiting until you hit ground again.

However, if you are caught in an aerial combo (Seph hits you, 'ports out, then back in to hit you again, and again, and again...) and AR is only lining you up for his next hit, don't use it and drop to the ground. He will miss, and you can get some room to breathe again.

3) ABSOLUTELY DO NOT GO INTO THIS FIGHT WITHOUT THE SECOND CHANCE ABILITY EQUIPPED. It lets you survive Sephiroth's worst combos with at least 1 HP; I guarantee you, you are going to NEED it!!

(If you chose the shield as your primary weapon in the Station of Serenity at the start of the game, Second Chance becomes available when you reach Level 49. If you chose the magic wand, Level 65. And if you chose the sword, you don't get Second Chance until Level 85!)

4) And above all else, when Sephiroth starts to float upright in the air with arms spread out and starts to cast a spell, BY ALL THAT IS GOOD AND JUST IN THE WORLD, DO NOT LET HIM FINISH IT!!!! HIT HIM BEFORE HE GETS THE CHANCE!!! If that spell connects, you will be left with 1 HP and ZERO MP left. If that happens, pray to whoever or whatever it is that you believe in that you have an Elixir available in your Customize slot, otherwise THIS fight's just about done!
