The Soul Cannon is a boss in Final Fantasy V. It is the main defense of the flying ruins, and the party must defeat it to get inside the ruins.


The Soul Cannon is not much of a problem. It is slow, and takes time to charge up its attacks. The Launchers will attack you though, which reduces a characters HP by a quarter and inflicts the Old status, severely harming your damage and healing. Its other attack, Surge Beam, can do some serious damage if not careful, but you can easily predict when he is going to use it. Surge Beam deals exactly half your max HP in damage and inflict Sap on each character.

Start the battle by using the Blue Magic spell Level 5 Death. This will instantly kill the Launchers, making the Cannon even more vulnerable. Then, have your Black Mages cast Thundara, your Mystic Knights use Thundara Sword, and your Summoners use Ramuh. It will take a while, but as long as you keep your HP up, it should not prove too difficult.
