Boss Battle Strategy
Heckran possesses strong magical techs. While battling the Heckran in Heckran Cave, it says, "Go ahead! Try and attack!" and refrains from attacking the party members. During this period, if the player attacks the Heckran, it counters with Water II, which deals large amounts of damage. Alternative turns between attacking and healing ensure that the powerful counter does not knock-out them out. After a brief period, a caption saying, "brief counterattack break" appears, signaling the end of this counter-attack phase of the battle. At this time, it is advised to unleash the party's most powerful techs.
When the player fights Lavos, it mimics that stats and techs of bosses they previously fought. One of them is Heckran.
