Lucifer is Ventus's second boss. Fighting Lucifer head-to-head is tricky, although, if you take a hit, you can recover from the knockdown with Payback Raid. Strike from behind and use your shotlock whenever possible. For most of the battle he attacks with his claws and sometimes jumps down from a higher part of the room, creating a shockwave as he lands. He also attacks by charging at Ventus. Note that after using any of these attacks, he is left wide open. Simply dodge his claws and body slams and attack. With the right timing, a series of Reaction Commands will begin, where Ventus rides Lucifer like a bull. The player must enter various commands to hang on until Lucifer rams his head into a piece of furniture. Then, with the right timing, attack Lucifer with a Reaction Command called "Bronco Strike" while he's stunned, dealing massive damage. If you follow these techniques, then Lucifer should fall quickly and with relative ease.
