  • Normal attack.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • Depleting Famrit's MP makes him stop using water attacks, which makes the 2nd part of the battle - piece of cake. Use Lance, Duskblade or other MP Draining skills. (Note: He will resume using Briny Cannonade after Cid dies regardless of MP)
  • Bring Xon and use Twist of Fate to steal Doctor Cid's 999% DEF/SPR buff. Enjoy invulnerability.
    • Active DEF buff is capped at 300%, while there is none for SPR, so you will notice much less DEF increase.
    • Copied buff has separate turn duration from the original, it has 2 turns duration.
  • Otherwise, bring water resistance buff and dispel.
    • Tidus has non-magic (for 'No Green Magic' mission) 100% water resistance buff.
    • Minfilia, Luka, Seabreeze Dark Fina, Beach Time Fina, Summer Lid has non-magic 70% water resistance buff.
    • Marie has non-magic 50% water resistance buff and non-magic 40% imperil all elements debuff.
    • Rikku has non-magic 40% water resistance buff & 30% party wide damage mitigation in the same skill.
    • Tilith has non-magic 40% water resistance buff, and a non-magic dispell ability to remove his invulnerability. Also, a 40% all stat buff.
    • Equipping Siren gives 50% water resistance.
  • combining Siren water resist 50% with 70% water buff Aqua Guard will make a character immune. If you put this on the lowest hp character then Famfrits water attack Briny Cannonade (while cid is alive) will do zero damage.
  • Doctor Cid is vulnerable to Man-Eater while Famfrit is vulnerable to Demon Killer.
  • Doctor Cid has high resistance to all elements except light and dark. If you are not using any imperil effect don't use elemental damage or weapon.
  • Both Doctor Cid and Famfrit can be charmed.
  • Double check the weapons on all your units, including your friend unit, to make sure nobody is using weapons with ANY elemental effect, (except dark) because all Cid has 100% elemental resistance for all elements except light and dark, which he has 50% for, and Famfrit has 200% for water, 100% for light.
