Strategy Writeup

Swordipede is hard to hit with physical attacks, as it can damage/interrupt party members with the spikes on its body. Barret's long-range attacks will quickly fill up its stagger meter. Once it drops to half health, it will move to the Aerith and Tifa area. The player will have a chance to switch Materia before the battle switches perspective.

Aerith's long-range basic attack and Tempest ability are the safest way to attack. Just be wary of the console in the middle of the arena, as it can block the player's view of Swordipede. When it uses Live Wire, run in the opposite direction to avoid taking a lot of lightning damage.
