How to beat Flan Prince in Final Fantasy 16

The FF16 Flan Prince is a boss that mixes some common attacks with a couple of unique moves. Here’s a list of these moves and tips on how to deal with the most problematic ones:

  • Tornado
  • Firaga
  • Blizzaga
  • Stonega
  • Leap Attack
    • A long leap that the boss tends to use after one of the elemental attacks. Easy to dodge or block.
  • Smash Attack
    • A powerful melee combo Flan Prince uses its myriad arms to pull off. Look out for this one and dodge appropriately. Getting hit by one will make dodging the rest very difficult.
  • Standard Attack
    • Get too close and Flan Prince will try to grab you with its arms in an effort to attack you with its mouth as well. You can bait this to get some rear attacks in.

As for strategy, we recommend that you dance around the boss and only unleash your attacks after you dodge the moves of Flan Prince. Titanic Block should be useful if you have trouble avoiding and aren't using Timely Accessories. Flan Prince likes to spam light attacks, and the blocking feature will give you a huge advantage in this fight.
