Mephiles firing his laser.

In this state, Mephiles has great physical strength, enough to create shock waves by hammering into the ground. He can also fire a powerful purple laser from his eye.


This form consist of four giant shadows encountered during the second boss battle with Mephiles, where they will spawn endlessly from the ground which is cloaked in darkness.

This form is completely invulnerable to attack, except from its eye which will open after Mephiles fires his laser. However, he takes several hits to be destroyed, so the Chaos Attack is the best usable move against him. When destroyed, this form release enough Light Cores to fill approximately 25% of the Action Gauge which is needed to activate the Chaos Boost. After activating the Chaos Boost, Mephiles' transformation is instantly negated.

In combat, Mephiles attacks either by shooting his lasers over a wide area or hammering into the ground which will create shock waves that will damage the player. After creating his shockwaves, he will sink back into the ground, only to re-emerge shortly afterwards.
