Goliath - Moves & Abilities
This is the most basic attack of the Goliath. It either swings one arm towards you or swings both arms, one after the other, in your direction.
Overhead Arm / Jump Slam
The Goliath will rear up and slam its arms on the ground. It usually swings its arms over its head or jumps up to gain power & momentum for this attack.
The burning portal in its belly area will open up and fire a vacuum of hot air & flames, slowly panning across the area. If you're not careful, you can get sucked in and damaged thoroughly.
The Goliath will pick up debris, usually a car, and place it inside its burning belly. It will shoot this debris out into a giant fire ball towards you.
A very quick move that can catch you by surprise, the Goliath will suddenly rush towards you in a bodily tackle.
The Goliath will take advantage of any debris it finds around the area - cars, chucks of concrete, and will throw them towards you with excessive force.

Anticipate And Dodge Goliath's Attacks
Goliath will have strong attacks that do massive damage to you. But it does wind up his attacks, when it does, stop attacking, and get ready to dodge.
Dodge When Locked Onto Goliath
You can only activate your dodge move when you're locked onto the Goliath. When he's rearing up for an attack, lock on to him then dodge away.
Use Devil Breaker To Break Away From Fire Vacuum
Goliath's fire vacuum move suck you inside it for a ton of damage. You can can stay clear of the attack or use one of your Devil Breakers to break way from its hold.
Wait For Arm Slam Then Attack
When the Goliath does an arm slam on the ground, it will stay on the ground for a good few seconds. Be sure to use Wire Snatch to close the distance and deal some damage to it before it gets up.
Charge Devil Breaker Attacks
Devil Breakers will pack quite a punch when charged before attacking. Try to use the Gerbera Devil Breaker to fire a beam at Goliath safely from a distance!
Use The Red Queen's Exceed
Having the Red Queen charged up will deal much more damage than normal attacks. Remember to charge it frequently by hitting the assigned button when not slashing at the boss.
Collect Green Orbs To Restore Health
