    Mythril Golem Weaknesses and Tips

    Final Fantasy VII Rebirth - Mythril Golem


    The Mythril Golem boasts multiple parts that can be targeted and even broken. It resists physical attacks, but that won’t stop a full frontal offensive from pressuring it (if you aim correctly that is). This clunky fiend is also weak to electricity, enabling you to give it a good jolt to turn the tide in your favor. Sadly, Red XIII’s focus on status effects won’t do much good, as the golem resists pretty much everything. I’d recommend Red XIII’s normal abilities and proper Lightning Materia. 

    Mythril Golem Phase 1

    The Mythril Golem looks big and tough, but you can knock him on his rear pretty easily if you keep up the pressure. Lock on and target his head. You can hammer him with Barret’s regular shots and his Overcharge. This will pressure the golem and lead to quickly staggering it. Red XIII’s Stardust Ray is also quite useful. Use as many ATB abilities as possible so that you can collect plenty of charges for your Synergy Abilities. 

    Mythril Golem Phase 2

    The Mythril Golem gains new parts and attacks during this phase. It’s quite easy to read his telegraphs and guard against his huge attacks. If your timing is good, you can even perfect guard his attacks and take zero damage. You can break his parts to weaken him, making your strategy more or less the same as the first phase. The golem does have an ability that rebuilds his broken parts, so be prepared! Pop off some well-timed Limit breaks and Synergy Abilities to finish him even more quickly, especially if you stagger it beforehand.
