Kill both Manipulators. They are so easy we don’t even need to detail a strategy for you. It is not over yet.

Boss Fight: Proto FalCie Adam (Round 2)

This version of Fal’Cie focuses on physical damage output, so Bravery and Protect on all opponents, while you need to take down bigger chunk of HPs. Smite off both Manipulators to cause the main body’s attacks to become weaker. Fal’Cie will eventually recall both Manipulators at full HPs, but they fall easily.

Proto FalCie Adam (Round 3)

This version of Fal’Cie focuses magic damage, hence you will immediately be pestered with Imperil and Curse on all party members, so cure that with Esunas. Meanwhile all opponents gain Faith status. Smite off both Manipulators to cause the main body’s magic attacks be reduced to simple lv1 element spells. Fal’Cie will eventually recall both Manipulators at full HPs, but they fall easily.

When you win that battle as well, there will be the same Live Trigger: (The Proto fal’Cie keeps regenerating. What’s the battle strategy?) - press Square to advance the game.
