BOSS ANALYSIS : This boss is extremely abusable for gaining AP, which you can check out by heading to the AP Grinding page. Anyhow, he’s basically a buffed Tonberry. Karma will be his main counterattack for when he’s far-off (i.e. first four turns) - it will deal damage to the attacker equal to the number of monsters they’ve killed times 100, which is probably going to be an insta-KO for most characters. You’ll also see a basic physical attack every turn after the four turns are up, which is a bit nasty. Once the boss gets in range, after the four turns, he will use Chef’s Knife to attack a character, which does major non-elemental damage. He can also use Voodoo, should you summon an Aeon, dealing some huge damage to them.

MAIN STRATEGY : Auto-Phoenix is essential for the first four turns, and Auto-Potion with X-Potions for the remainder. That’s about it, really - he’s no different than any other Tonberry, other than the buffed stats and Karma dealing a lot of damage. Attack and heal when needed.

Don is no different to other Tonberrys. It will counter with Karma and slowly move forward until Chef’s Knife.
