Fiend Listing - Monster Arena

Monster Arena > Mt. Gagazet > Grendel

HP: 9,500

Grendel is a Ruminant-type enemy that can be found in the Mt. Gagazet caves or along the pathway to the Zanarkand Ruins. You need to capture five of each Ruminant-type enemy in order to unlock Juggernaut in the Species Conquest section of the Monster Arena.

Grendel can do a fairly heavy amount of damage to your party members. The best strategy is to have Wakka use Dark Attack or Dark Buster on them to blind them, which will prevent them form being able to land their physical attacks.

Kimahri can use Lancet on a Dual Horn to learn Fire Breath for his Ronso Rage Overdrive.
