How to Pressure Mythril Golem

Attack the Mythril Golem’s head to Pressure it. Once destroyed, your Physical attacks will be more effective, allowing you to build up its Stagger meter.

However, once it enters its second phase the Mythril Golem will start countering with Defensive Bombardment when you attack its head. To counter this, you must first fracture the Spine section.

How to Beat the Mythril Golem in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth

The Myrthil Golem boss fight has two phases. It’s worth noting that the Myrthil Golem is weak to lightning attacks. Exploiting this weakness is key to winning the battle in both phases.

Both Barret and Red XIII are primarily physical attackers. However, you’ll really need to exploit the Myrthil Golem’s weakness to lightning. As such, equip Lightning Materia before battle to use lightning spells.

Myrthil Golem Phase 1

You should always target the head to Pressure the Myrthil Golem. Breaking the head will lower its defense and allow physical attacks to deal damage. As such, the process should be lightning attacks to destroy the head, then physical attacks to conserve MP. Repeat until the Myrthil Golem is Staggered.

Myrthil Golem Phase 2

After you first Stagger the Mythril Golem, the fight transitions to Phase 2. The boss now adds a Spine and Right Arm section. These each have their own HP bar and grant the Myrthil Golem additional attacks.

During Phase 2, hitting its head will allow for a Defensive Bombardment counterattack. These can be tricky to dodge, so be ready to work through your healing supplies.

The process in Phase 2 is to target the Spine first. This will prevent the Myrthil Golem from using Defensive Bombardment and allow you to attack the head directly.
