The Undying—fearsome Cie’th who defy fal’Cie will, driven by an intense loathing of all that lives. Zenobia, The Butcher, is of their number, and I, of her line. But I go now to stay her blade, as my father and his father before him once attempted. The Butcher’s den is in the old Haerii archaeopolis, at the northern edge of the steppe. There, at the scene of her foulest atrocities, I will expunge her taint, and restore my family’s honor.

Location

The mark location for this one is right here in the area below - so there will be no running around for this one! When you reach the marker on the map you trigger a Cut Scene.

Strategy

Tonberry is small but very, very vicious. His knife strikes are rather infrequent but do a decent amount of damage, however; the real threat is his Grudge attacks. As the battle wears on, Tonberry’s rage will begin to seethe, and once it reaches a certain point, he’ll release an attack that hits for a few thousand points worth of damage, recovers all of his health, and resets his combo percentage. Worse yet, every time he uses the attack, the power increases dramatically. Even if you survive the first time, you likely won’t last the second or third time.

The key here is simply to stagger Tonberry as fast as possible and get him in a series of juggles that will drain his HP fast and prevent him from using the Grudge skills. Don’t even worry about buffs of healing unless absolutely necessary, simply hit fast and hard until you’ve got him launched high in the sky. If you even let him get off one Grudge/full HP restore, it’s going to be extremely difficult to recover and beat him.

Six people, from very different backgrounds, get thrown together in a series of tumultuous events. A Pulse fal'Cie (a demi-god) has been found in the seaside town of Bodhum, a place where the fates of everyone converge and the discovery sets in motion a chain of events that will change the world forever. An innocent fireworks display in the town soon turns nasty when government soldiers storm the peaceful celebration and commit everyone to the Purge (sending individuals "contaminated" by the Pulse fal'Cie into exile). This is where your story and legend begins. Can you fight fate?
