How To Beat Bahamut
Evade → Continuously Attack And OK
Bahamut's battle is mainly slashing attacks and fairly easy to evade. Evade each attack properly and counter attack.
When It Is Staggered, Attack With Spitflare
When you get 100% Staggered, then attack with the new move "Spitflare". Use it when you get close then you can get an increase and inflict great damage.

|1||Move at Megaflare + Evade|
|2||Lightning Ball destroyed by ◯ Button's Locked On|
|3||Stop Gigaflare by destroying the surrounding balls with Charge Attacks|
Move At Megaflare + Evade
Megaflare has a tracking effect, so just evading will allow you to get hit by the after attacks. You will want to circle around the screen and evade so you can cleanly avoid the attacks.
Lightning Ball Destroyed By Locked On
The lightning balls that aim for you can be destroyed several at a time with 〇 Button's Locked On Attacks.
Gigaflare, Destroy Balls With Charge Attacks
You can stop Gigaflare by destroying all of the surrounding balls. The △ Button's Charge Attacks are easy to use so destroy them 1 by 1.

Ifrit Risen VS Bahamut Walkthrough
|1||Here Evade + Attack is OK|
|2||When Teraflare shows up, cut down within the time|
|3||Evade Celestial Foundry big to the side|
Here Evade + Attack Is OK
The Basic attack patterns will not change, so evade as before + attack then there will not be a problem. "Lightspeed" which you can use with the × Button, will allow you to get close to the enemy quickly, so after evading you can attack after closing your distance.
When Teraflare Shows Up, Cut Down Within The Time
When Teraflare, use moves like Spitflare and cut down on the gauge on the right top. If you don't make it on time, press the → button and use Firelight to have you HP to the max so you can withstand the attack.
Evade Celestial Foundry Big To The Side
Celestial Foundry has a wide attacking range, so when you see the move name, avoid to the sides. You can also avoid it behind the enemy, but you may accidentally hit it so you will want to safely move to the sides.
