FE4 Final Boss

Recommended Posts

Everybody knows that Tyrfing can go toe-to-toe with the final boss, and that Naga can outright obliterate him, but are any other characters capable of reliably killing him? If so, what is the exhaustive list of characters who can achieve the requisite capabilities?

Sleep Sword

Due to an underflow bug with his >30 Res it will always put Julius to sleep on contact. You have to rig the hit but it enables anyone with a physical Holy weapon to slowly and steadily wear him out without fear of retaliation. Or you can just dogpile him with units armed with Brave weapons, Pursuit and the Charge skill in tandem with Holy weapon users, with Charisma bots and dancer support to speed things up.

You can also berserk the Dark Bishop with hell from outside of the enemy's range. His AI causes him to go for Julius, leaving him at 1 hp. Once again, you have to rig the hell hit, but it means that literaly any attack that connects will kill him (all attacks in fe4 do at least one damage (except hell when hp is already 1). So in other words, literaly every character can kill Julius, as long as sharlow exists and obtained the berserk staff, and one of your magic users was a mag of over 25 (which is the Dark Bishop's mdef). The same strat may be possible using fee and the berserk sword, but i don't know the setup for that, and the probability of the berserk status being applied by the sword is only 5% in this case.

I suppose Faval with Alec as his father should be able to handle him relatively easily. The Ichival has increased attack power compared to the other holy weapons and Alec's Awareness would protect him from Wrath.

His only real problem is actually hitting Julius.  Ichival has a measly 70 hit and even with a max skill of 27 and a skill ring his chances of hitting Julius without a charisma bonuses is only 40

Using charisma bonuses, lover bonuses, and leadership stars, we can get as much as +60 if he is within three tiles of celice, delmund, nana, laylea, and his lover (who you can make nana or laylea to combine two bonuses in one cheracter, or lana for the +3 res conversation). THis allows for a 100% hit rate. Keep in mind that the optimal bonus requires you to essentially play the entire game with this outcome in mind, but you still get a significant bonus for doing most of what i said above.

Jamke!Faval or Midir/Beowulf!Faval can theoretically ORKO Julius with Chrage shenanigans (Jamke is better for this since he has Adept as well), but you'd need to dodge all of Julius' attacks after he gets in Wrath range so it's not really worth it.
