Flying enemy.

Tri-Point is a boss in Final Fantasy VIII. Encountered in the Wine Cellar area, it is one of the Ultimecia's Eight Minions defeated to unlock the seals placed on the party.

In the English-language version of the game, Siren can be drawn from it if the player did not draw the GF from Elvoret.

Battle

Once the battle initiates the Boss will say:
'USING ELEMENTAL ATTACKS.'
'WHATEVER I DON'T USE, I DON'T LIKE.'

This means that Tri-Point will counter with Mega Spark unless it is hit with an element that it is very weak against. To find out Tri-Point's weakness, the player must Scan Tri-Point first to know if its weak against either Fire or Ice. If it is weak against Fire, attack with Fire-based attacks, which prompts Tri-Point to be weak against Ice, of which then the player must attacks with an Ice-based attack. Alternatively, since Mega Spark is Thunder-elemental, if thunder spells are junctioned to the characters' Elem Def-J and attack normally, the resulting Mega Spark counter will be negated or absorbed by the characters.

If Tri-Point uses Scan on a target, the target will be hit with Onrush, an attack that ignores VIT.
