There are 4 phases in this battle & Cloud has to fight by himself at the beginning. Make sure you equip Heal Materia to Cloud so that he can heal his HP by himself.

If you want to change your equipment, you can press hold □ during the Sephiroth event movie.

Phase 1: Cloud VS Sephiroth

phase1

First phase of the battle is one on one battle with Cloud & Sephiroth. If you know Sephiroth's move pattern, you can easily pass this phase.

Counter Telluric Fury

Most important thing in phase 1 and 2 is to counter the Telluric Fury with Punisher mode. Sephiroth becomes pressured after countering him.

You Can Dodge Firaga

Firaga

Dodge Firaga by rolling horizontally. By rolling couple times, it will become easier to dodge.

Guard & Dodge Backward Blizzaga

blizzaga

Blizzaga is hard to dodge. Change to Operator Mode & guard Blizzaga. Once you've guarded, dodge backward before the ice shatters. You can't guard Blizzaga with Punisher Mode.

Dodge Aeolian Onslaught Sideway

Aeolian Onslaught

When you see Sephiroth jumping up, that's the sign of Aeolian Onslaught. Dodge sideway to evade this attack.

Don't Attack During Scintilla

When you see Sephiroth sheathing his sword, that's a sign of the counter. Don't attack him while he is doing this.

Phase 2: 2 On 1 Battle With Sephiroth

phase3

Once you've reduced Sephiroth's HP to certain amount, Tifa or Aerith joins your battle and it becomes 2 on1. However, Sephiroth's moves change dramatically so be aware.

Avoid Stepping On The Purple Light of Hell's Gate

When Sephiroth uses Hell's Gate, he jumps very high and stabs his sword on the ground. First, carefully dodge his stab by taking a distance from him. After you've dodge his stab, watch out for the purple light coming out of the ground. If you don't step on the purple light, you can evade Hell's Gate.

Guard & Dodge Aeroga

Same as Blizzaga, Aeroga is hard dodge as well. Receive Aeroga first by guarding with Operator mode and step backward with dodge.

Telluric Fury Becomes Continuous Attacks

In phase 3, you can't easily counter Teluric Fury since Sephiroth won't flinch after countering. Guard this move after countering.

Phase 3: 3 on 1 Battle With Sephiroth

aerith

At the last battle phase, 3rd member (Tifa or Aerith) joins your party. Sephiroth becomes One-winged and his moves change dramatically.

Counter Sephiroth's Physical Attack To Make Him Pressured

You can make Sephiroth under pressured by countering his normal physical attack. Make him staggered and use Limit Break to deal high damage.

Octaslash Deals Heavy Damage

Octaslash

Octaslash is extremely fast and deals heavy damage. Since its almost impossible to dodge, you might as well switch to other character and heal the damaged ally.

Sephiroth Changes His Element With Infusions
