Kingdom Hearts Final Mix (PS4): Sephiroth Guide

Hi everyone, Cathy here. In this video, This video is going to cover taking on Sephiroth in Kingdom Hearts Final Mix through two methods. The first method I will show is the Strike Raid method. I saw it in a video by EliteWaffle on YouTube. And it did look very familiar, like maybe I’ve done that before myself. And then the other method was, I had a guide in mind. I looked one up by Soraalam1 “Boss Busters Sephiroth.” It was a very helpful video. And I tried to remember the general tips, but I also did a lot of the stuff that I usually do. Eventually, I felt like I could be more aggressive and just heal up and just be ready for a move called Descend Heartless Angel. If you don’t already know about it, it’s a move that Sephiroth has where he can knock your HP down to 1 and if you are hit by it, you pretty much need to have an Elixir ready to heal you before he hits you again.

So, when you’re prepared for that and you’re leveled up like I am, maybe not quite this high, but you’re leveled up, you can take him on I think. Here I am, I’m at level 100, I’ve got great equipment, and I’ve got lots of HP and lots of MP so, ’cause I saved battles like this one for close to the end. So, we’re going to wrap it up here and then I included his little intro movie because I like it so much. He’s one of my favorite characters and let’s go check it out very, very soon. Here we go. Here we go, gonna pick it. You know the rules, right? Question mark.

That was so cool. I lost on my first attempt, but that beautiful movie, so I made sure that I had at least the clip saved so that I could put it in this video because I like it so much. It’s actually on my old YouTube channel, just by itself. So, as you can see, if you’re watching the video, that we are really just doing Strike Raid over and over, locking on, and Strike Raid. And I’ve got lots of HP, lots of MP, and I didn’t show my equipment, but I have very, very strong equipment because I synthesized all the items, and I’ve equipped mostly things that increase my strength and/or MP and/or HP. So, here we go. You also want to be stocked up on Elixirs for when you do run out of MP. Alright, oh, now he’s starting to teleport around so according to the Soraalam1 guide, we have entered stage 2, and you can see he did Descend Heartless Angel right away, and I got my Elixir. And that move is pretty much why I had to try repeatedly at this fight. I even failed on the Strike Raid attempt, even the easy way. If you do not get your Elixir ready in time, it’s over! So, but you know, if you’re Strike Raiding fast enough, you will get him. And if you’re nearby and you hit him, you will get him. So, that was good, I did get him a couple of times before he actually pulled it off. I think that’s, I think for the Strike Raid version, I think that was really the only time he pulled off Descend Heartless Angel, but I’m not 100% sure.

So, oh he’s swiping at me, he’s swiping at me! You’ll see in the next one, you can guard a lot of those if you try. Alright, here we go, okay, I did get hit by that one. So that’s two. That’s two Descend Heartless Angels he’s done on me. And you can see both times, I made sure I got my Elixir in time. Alright, he’s starting to run around. He’s starting to run around. Oh okay, I was wrong, and there’s three. There’s three, so yeah, I guess I just let him do it over and over again.

Let him do his fire. Here we go. Oh, there he goes again, but we’re just going to keep doing Strike Raid. We’re just going to keep doing Strike Raid. Teleporting again. Ah! Yes! Yes! I got him. I got him in time. Did you see that? I got him before he did Descend Heartless Angel on me. Teleporting. Ah, the fire, but I’m fine, I’m fine because I’m Strike Raiding. I’m Strike Raiding. So, what’s he going to do, right? He’s going to-well, that. He’s going to do that, but I’m going to get him. I’m going to get him, I’ve just to keep trying. Well, as you can see there, I pretty much just took the hits and then healed right up. Haha, that did nothing because I am Strike Raiding him.

We are down to grass green. We are going to get him. He’s going to keep trying to get us, but we’re going to keep getting him. There goes our Strike Raid. Thank you Strike Raid. Almost got him and in the other method, this is about where I pull out the Strike Raid as well. Last health bar. We are so going to get him. We’re a little low on MP, but that’s okay. Do you know why? Because we have Elixirs for just such an occasion. Going to finish him off. Boom! Got him! We got him! And then we’re going to get an Ansem’s Report and probably a keyblade and probably a trophy too. Oh, there he goes, floating up in the air, looking all cool like Sephiroth. Okay, I will give you something. I will give you something for using Strike Raid on me over and over and over again. There you go, obtained One-Winged Angel, Ansem’s Report 12. Alright, my little victory pose. And if I did get a trophy, I cut it off right then because this is the next method over here.

Alright! So this time, we are going to save Strike Raid for later. Here we go. Here he comes, dodging, dodging right away. Lock on, got hit already. You’re going to see a lot of that actually. We’re going to start to hit, one hit, and then he hits me right back. So, and it takes awhile, and there’s the fire. And I have Sliding Dash equipped, thanks to the Soraalam1 guide. And I know that if you are close enough, you can try and close in once the fire starts to subside. There I am healing. So you see, I get caught in it a lot, but I’ve got a lot of HP. I’ve got my healing magic, and I’m not wasting my MP on Strike Raid, so I can heal quite a bit. So, he’s following me around. We haven’t even made a dent in his health bar yet or because his health bar is over the limit, I actually can’t see how much of a dent I have made on him yet. So, I’m just going to keep going, keep dodging while he does the little leap forward, trying stay out of-oh, didn’t stay out of his range and almost got caught in the fire but then zoom in and do a little combo there.

And we’re going to basically repeat that over and over and over again. So it’s still kind of a repeated action, it’s just, it’s not Strike Raid. It’s a three-hit combo if we can get one and a lot of evasive action. Running. There’s a swipe. Okay, near the fire. Oh, I got hit by it, but I was trying to wait for it to subside and get in there without getting hit by it. You see that I tried to glide over to him, but he was too fast for me. We have finally cut into the health bar. Yay! So yes, yes, I am damaging him, even if slowly. There’s the fire again. Gliding, not in time. Running. Dodging. Dodge Roll. An aerial attack. He got me, oh caught right in the fire. Oh, oh that hurt. That hurt. But hey, I got a combo. Now I’ll heal. And I got hit again by the fire. That just keeps happening.

Alright, and he does his little leap there. Running. Running, running! And there’s the fire. Get in! No! Too soon, too soon. Too soon on the hit. Heal again. That’s just happening over and over again. And at some point, I’m like, you know, I’m running and getting hit, so I may as well just be more aggressive and go after him. ‘Cause yeah, getting hit, still having to heal, even when I’m trying to run away as much as I am. Running again. Dodging. Dodge roll, dodge roll, just out of reach. There’s the fire. Slide Dash! Still not close enough, oh, oh, there! There. Now he’s started to teleport, so that means he will attempt Descend Heartless Angel soon. Probably. I mean, I guess, he attempted it very quickly on that Strike Raid version that we did. So let’s see what happens. I’m Dodge Rolling. And there he is. There’s the fire again. Got hit by the fire again. Slide Dash, miss, or rather, we both clashed there and then I could do my combo. Ah, not that time though. Heal! Alright. He leapt. Oh, right smack dab in the fire. Yeah, he still hasn’t done Descend Heartless Angel yet. I’ll be ready when he does though.

And there it is. So, and you see, he’s doing it, got it, just in time. Like so close, he almost had me there. He almost had me. There, yeah, I got a combo. Yes! Ah, stopped and in the fire. Stuck in the fire. He’s running now. He’s running around the stage now while he’s still going after me. So, now, he’s being more aggressive, which I guess means in a sense, I can be more aggressive because he will be near me more.

Okay, here we go. Start blocking. Oh okay, I’m not blocking here, but there I go. Block, block, block. So it actually looked like at least three hits there. Oh, there he does his thing again. So, got my Elixir ready and now! Still just in time. Here he is, running, leaping, teleporting, He likes to teleport. And I like to get my hits in. Oh, there’s the fire. Heal. Nice, powerful healing magic thanks to all my wonderful MP there, thanks to my synthesized weapons and accessories, weapon and accessories. Jump! Combo! Yeah! Yeah! Oh, and then I’m stuck in the fire. Heal! And we’re going to keep doing that. Uh-oh! Here it comes again! Alright, time to block. Block. Block, oh, not there. Block, block. Augh! Well, got some blocks in. So that’s still good. More combo. Another combo.

Alright, so now I’m being a lot more aggressive myself because he is being a lot more aggressive, and he’s just coming after me, so I’m like, “Alright, fine! Fine. I will just come right at you and heal a bunch.” Like usual. Yup. I’m sure I’m going to heal soon because I’m pretty low on health. There we go, right there, right in the middle of the fire. Make sure you have Leaf Bracer on. If you don’t have that ability, maybe you should wait to get it ’cause it’s a big help during this battle. Alright, so he’s going to send those things after me. And I’m going to run around going “Aah aah, okay, can’t block that.” Can’t block that. I’m trying to be like, “Should I glide? Am I supposed to glide? I don’t remember.” *laughs* And there he throws the thing. I got hit, but it wasn’t that bad. Oh hey, hey, I see some grass green life bar there.

Alright, and he was twirling at me, there he goes, does a little twirl slash there. So, alright, alright, yeah, I’ll hit you back. I’ll hit you back. There he’s teleporting again. Okay, heal! Okay, yeah, we’re doing good. We’re doing good. We can bring out the Strike Raid soon. We can bring out the Strike Raid soon. Alright, I’m getting more combos in now that I’m getting closer, and he’s staying closer. And I’m like, “yeah, bring it!” Do the Strike Raid. Do the Strike Raid! And, there he is! Almost got him. Yeah! Yes! Yes! We have done it, with Strike Raid and other stuff this time. Way to go. We did it! Yay! And that’s it. The End.
