Boss Battle: Ultimate Weapon
Boss Battle against Ultimate Weapon in Mideel

HP: Runs away after a certain amount of hits
Reward: None

The battle against Ultimate Weapon is one of endurance. Ultimate Weapon has 100,000 HP but the goal of this fight is not to defeat the boss but to last long enough for Ultimate Weapon to flee the battle which happens after several turns.

Use Big Guard from your Enemy Skill Materia and Regen off your Restore Materia if you have leveled it high enough.

Make sure that you steal a Curse Ring during the battle as this accessory is particularly rare.

Lifestream Sequence (Cloud’s Subconsciousness)

You will regain control of Tifa in a dream world surrounded by images of Cloud. The first Cloud you should speak to is the one sitting in front of the image of Nibelheim at the back of the screen.
