Final Fantasy 13-2 Giant’s Fist Strike – How To Deal 99,999 Damage

To unlock the Giant’s Fist achievement or trophy in Final Fantasy 13-2, you need to deal 99,999 damage with a single attack. 99,999 damage should appear on the screen from a single strike; don’t confuse it with total damage dealt with a multi-hit strike skill.

For this achievement, control Noel in the battle and make sure he has 800+ attack power. Max out Noel’s abilities and get Futsuno Mitama (You can get it exchange for the ‘Chaos Crystal’ fragment that can be bought from Serendipity) with 3X Power Wrists to reach 1000+ attack power.

Make sure Noel has learned ‘Impact Break’ and ‘Break Burst’ skills from Crystarium. These skills help him deal massive damage in a single hit as a Commando (Role). but require precise timing. Controlling Noel you need to attack the Monster with ‘Attack’ command when the monster is recovering from being Staggered.

When Noel has 800-1100 attack power and has learned Impact Break and Break Burst, find an enemy with lot of Health Power. (Final form of last boss ‘Chronosavior’ or Long Gui in Archylte Steppe).

Stagger the enemy until it is at 999%. Now, hit it with deprotect to lower its defense and initiate a series of 5x Attack commands with Noel 2-3 seconds before the enemy recovers from Stagger.

If the enemy has deprotect on it, Noel will have enough attack power with Impact Break and Break Burst to deal 99,999 damage in one go. All that left is timing of attack that should sync with enemy recovery from Stagger.

If the timing of attacks coincides with the moment the enemy recovers from Stagger, you will hit a single strike of 99,999 damage and a Giant’s Fist achievement/trophy will pop-up at the end of the battle.

If that doesn’t work, retry and aim for higher attack power. You may also get this achievement/trophy with pure luck as you grid more attack power with Impact Break and Break Burst, which can result into random strikes of 99,999 during any battle.
