The mark is a Humbaba - and no real preparation is required for this one - just head on in and use the save point on the right.

Strategy

Finally, the last of Titan’s special fights! Humbaba is another Behemoth-like enemy, and like his kin, he has two ways of fighting: on all four legs and on his haunches. Once he sits up (usually when his HP drops below about 1/4), he’ll restore all of his health and gain stronger attacks. Fire is his weakness, so get your Ravagers ready to burn him to the ground. Don’t expect to stagger him easily, though – with an 800% percentile, he’s got some very thick skin. Still, his counter won’t reset when he sits up and restores his health (unlike Tonberry) so a stagger certainly isn’t impossible. Like some of the other powerful Behemoths, Humbaba has the ability to stand up when low on HP, fully healing itself and allowing it to do much more damage. Its chain gauge does not drop, however, and it is often easy to stagger it soon after its transformation, making the battle much easier.
