Malicious Goons Side Quest
|Sector 5 Slums (Aerith’s House)||Tonberry||None|
|Unlocked at the beginning of Chapter 14.|
|1||Head to Aerith’s house. When you reach the previous area where you fought Rude, be prepared to battle Tonberry.|
|2||When the battle begins, switch to Barret to pepper Tonberry with ranged attacks. A good strategy is to employ hit-and-run tactics to avoid Chef’s Knife which instantly kills its target. When you see Tonberry wind up for Chef’s Knife, dodge immediately. Tonberry usually performs the attack when in close-range, though will use a ranged version occasionally. Have Cloud use Triple Slash and Tifa use Starshower to build up the boss’ stagger gauge.
Tonberry will also freeze characters to set them up for Chef’s Knife. Because of this, it is recommended to stock up on Phoenix Downs before going into the fight.
|3||The quest will be completed after Tonberry is defeated.|
