Ark is a boss in Final Fantasy IX.


The party fights it in Oeilvert at the tombstone. Ark uses four attacks: Propeller Wind, Boomerang, Whirlwind, and Photon. Propeller Wind is probably the most annoying attack since it Confuses your entire party, but if you have Clear Headed equipped to everyone, then the attack won't do anything at all. Boomerang and Whirlwind are just basic attacks that will take down some HP. Photon on the other hand is an attack that will take one party member down to 1 HP. The fight is pretty tough, but as long as you have Clear Headed equipped, the fight should be a breeze.

An alternate tactic is to ensure you have Amarant in your team and be in possession of five Diamond Swords. Just ensure Amarant stays alive and just keep throwing the Diamond Swords at Ark. Zidane should steal the Holy Lance from Ark, as it is a powerful weapon for Freya.
