So my Sora is leveled up to 95 beat I still find it hard to beat him. I always use valor and final form, but never master form because of his speed.

Approach Sephiroth and press Triangle for a short cutscene.

Use the reaction command to block Sephiroth's attack. He will use this at the beginning of battle, and further into the fight.

Immediately select Limit then execute Trinity. When you are fininshed with the first strike press triangle quickly to attack him again. After, you can still attack him with the X button.

Once the attack is over, attack and use either Upper Slash or Finishing Leap to send him in the air, then keep on with your attack, adding a couple Horizontal Slashes along the way.

After you use the finishing attack, both you and Sephiroth will drop to the ground, in which he will do either one or two things.
He will stand his ground and attack using his sword. If he does this, jump and use Airial Dodge, then Glide away from him. When you get on the other side, land because you might need to press Triangle to guard again.
He will teleport and knock you up in the air. If he does this, press square to use retaliating slash when he reappears, then continue with your combo by pressing X until either he dissappears or you finish.

At anytime after knocking out about 5 bars, Sepiroth will use Heartless Angel. this attack is one that will summon a halo around your head to bring you down to one HP and no MP (With second chance or Once More) or Auto-kill you. To stop this, attack him before he starts saying "Angel". If you do not have the neccesary abillities to reach him, and therefore cannot attack him, a well timed cure spell will cancel out the attack, but you will still have zero magic. On top of this, if you do not have the second chanse abillity, curing will make no difference as you will die before your cure spell has any effect. If you don't stop him in time, he will teleport and use either an attack you will need to block with Triangle or his regular attack. After this, Sepiroth will continue using Heartless Angel periodically.

After Heartless Angel, he will become more of a threat, running instead of just standing there and gawking or walking around. He will not only use his standard attack, but he will use something called Shadow Flare, which is a big fire pillar that sucks you in. Just use Glide for it or if you have the MP, use Trinity. Often there will be dark balls that appear around you. You can either destroy them (it takes only one hit), or use Reflect on them to knock them back toward Sephiroth. The number of balls depends. Sometimes there will be only 3 other times 7 or 8. Also sometimes he will use one of his Flash attacks where you need to press triangle. If this happens and the balls are around you press triangle and the balls will be blocked too. Also worth mentioning is that aerial dodge can knock the balls away.

When you get him down to about 4-5 bars of life, He will teleport and turn into his final form, where he is at his strongest and will use a meteor spell to try to kill you. When this happens, double-jump and use glide. Don't stop moving.

The last pinch of life that Sephiroth has will only diminish via a Finishing move. It will still work if you're doing a Berserk barrage. How? You'd have to do a Horizontal Slash or an Upper Slash to "replace" the Finishing move


hope that helps :)

Easiest way to beat sephiroth is to use Final Form and use Ice Magic. Simple.

*Reads through*

What Noctis said, but when you get better at fighting him, all you really need are the Growth abilities, a few potions, Reflect and a Keyblade. That's about all I use XD, but the process at it is about the same as listed by Noctis.

Once you fight him enough, you WANT to use codes to make him stronger. He's just to damn weak...

I tried to use glide whenever he turns to heartless angel but those meterior rites always hit. I use valor and wisdom to attack him because sora is faster. :lul:

The reason why Sephiroth keeps attacking you is because you are using your special forms. They are much harder to control and Sora has different defense techniques that you may need to master. Plus he can't block in master Form or in Valor.

You can beat him in many ways, I beat him using limit form on final mix, he was much harder than on kingdom hearts 2, but i would beat the way noctis said. Easier way.
