Obtain Ultima Weapon
It is highly recommended to have obtained Ultima Weapon before attempting the Limit Cut episode as the datascape bosses are extremely challenging. The Keyblade also gives you access to Ultimate Form, allowing you to block attacks from all directions. This grants you better survivability in battle.
Equip the Kupo Coin
The Kupo Coin lets you survive a fatal blow once, recovering half of your maximum HP and curing you of any status ailments. Upon obtaining the MOG Card, the Kupo coin will fully restore your HP, 100 of MP (or 50% of the gauge), and remove all status effects.
This makes the Kupo Coin incredibly useful as a form of second wind to defeat the challenging bosses in the datascape.
Below are the most useful abilities to equip when going up against Limit Cut episode bosses.
|Glide||Extremely useful for avoiding most ranged attacks from datascape bosses.|
|Block||Required for Counter Slash/Kick/Impact. Most of your opportunities to damage bosses in Limit Cut start from timing your block before countering.|
|Counter Slash/Kick/Impact||Reprisal abilities will set up your enemies for follow-up combos, making Counter Slash/Kick/Impact invaluable.|
|Final Blow||Allows you to stay on enemies after countering them to stack even more damage.|
|Payback Strike||Recommended ability for retaliating after an aerial recovery.|
