Scarlet and Crimson Mare Strategies

Below is a guide on how to beat the Scarlet and Crimson Mare, including recommenced party, equipment, skills, magic, Materia, and abilities to use against the boss:

First Phase (100% HP)

Start engaging the boss by throwing Yuffie’s 4-Point Shuriken towards the boss. While getting close, use melee attacks and combos. You can make use of Lightning Materia as well.

Crimson Mare mixes long-range and melee attacks. While you avoid its Bullet Barrage and Flame Spire move, don’t position yourself in front of it since it will deal with sword attacks and combos. It is better to attack the boss from the sides if possible.

The arena will be surrounded by Sentry Rays initially. While you go around, try to eliminate them. Once they’re cleared the boss will use its Directive: Deploy move so summon Sentry Launchers. This time, let Sonon handle Crimson Mare while you manage your partner’s HP. Let Yuffie focus on the Sentry Launchers first.

Before reaching 75% HP, it will use its Cover Fire move. The swords of the mech will be under the flame. Let it ran out first before you engage.

Second Phase (75% HP)

Scarlet will fall back and replace the sword armaments of the Crimson Mare. It will be replaced by Makocannons both left and right. Both the Left Makocannon and Right Makocannon are susceptible to damage. Crimson Mare will hit the party using the laser beam. Make sure that you’re not in front or in range of the attack. After using the attack, the Crimson Mare will be crippled for a while so this is an opportunity to damage the cannon armaments.

Once it recovers it will use another attack using its Makocannons. This time, rocket missiles will come out and target your spot. Just evade and let them land first before you counter-attack.

The moment you crippled both Makocannons, Crimson Mare will be weak. So damage it as much as you can and feel free to use Ramuh and Synergy Commands.

Third Phase (50% HP)

Scarlet will retreat and attach a new pair of armaments. This time, it will have a long sword, Claymore, and a Shield. Target Claymore armament only. Keep using lightning abilities and Ramuh’s lightning ability to fully damage the boss.

Fourth Phase (0% HP)

Scarlet will use its Revivify move to make Crimson Mare work with no HP. It will change its armaments again to Makocannons but it will use its Rocket Launcher attacks more. Target Scarlet to finish off the battle.
