Rinoa is a target in the Adel boss fight in Final Fantasy VIII, fought at the start of Disc 4. In this battle, Rinoa is Junctioned to Adel. If Rinoa is killed, it counts as Game Over.


Main article: Adel (Boss)

Cast Regen on her at the start of the battle, followed by Shell, and be sure to cast Regen and Shell on all of your characters as well (Quistis' Mighty Guard works wonders). Adel will frequently drain HP from Rinoa, so make sure one of the fighters has the Recover command to top her up occasionally.

Have Squall, Irvine, and/or Selphie serve as the healers of this battle, topping up Rinoa's health and protection. You should find Adel to be relatively easy if Rinoa remains safe through the battle. Interestingly enough, you can Devour Rinoa for a permanent increase of 10 HP, but it is pointless in that if she dies, it is Game Over.
