How do you beat Sephiroth

That sounds like it's impossible when your on lvl 49 proud mode.
Uh,no it isn't.
He's pretty easy once you know his moves,when he uses them and how to dodge,block,avoid or counter them.
@ Thread creator:
Have a Keyblade with high attack power equipped,like Oblivion,Rumbling Rose,Ultima(If you have it),Guardian Soul or any other Keyblades with high attack power.
Equip abilities such as Aerial Dodge,Glide,High Jump,MP Hastega,Explosion,Finishing Leap,Slide Dash,Combo Boost,Air Combo Boost,Berserk Charge,Finishing Plus,Leaf Bracer,Upper Slash,Guard,Counterguard,Defender,Aerial Recovery,Retaliating Slash and Once More.
But that is,if you have enough AP to equip all of those abilities.
Sephiroth begins the battle by using a dash slice attack,press triangle to block it,or try and jump out of the way before he connects,though the latter may be difficult.
After blocking the attack,you'll be behind Sephiroth and he'll be open to attack for a bit.
That will be your chance to attack him,so run up to him or use slide dash and start a combo till he teleports away from you.
Next,he'll be walking towards you and when he comes close to you,he will begin a fast combo,so use Guard or Reflega.
If you use Reflega near him,he'll get damaged,if you use guard to block his combos,then counter by starting a combo.
After that,he'll start to teleport in front of you and use an Upper Slash to knock you up into the air.
To block this,use Reflega or Guard or if your hit,use Aerial Recovery and then use Retaliating Slash when he teleports to use his air combos.
He will now start to use his dash slice attack often,so press triangle to block and then attack him when he's open.
If he damages you severely in battle,use Curage or High Potions and Mega Potions.
Next,he'll summon some purple orbs that surround you and home in on you,so use Reflega,or guard,or try to jump or glide to avoid them or try to hit the orbs back at Sephiroth.
He will then start using an attack where he summons fire pillars which pull you in,so jump and glide away from those,run away from those or if you go to close to the pillars,use Reflega.
After that,he'll start to use a very,very deadly attack in battle.
Heartless Angel,which drains you of health and magic.
It will kill you if you don't have Once More equipped.
Then,he will gain a dark aura and will become faster and stronger.
He'll be more aggressive so watch out for his attacks and heal when you need to.
His final attack is a shower of meteors,which can be avoided by running,jumping,gliding and using Reflega.
Keep on using the tactics I've told you in the battle and you'll defeat him.
equip yourself with your most powerful Keyblade (I think I used Fenrir), hi-potions, elixirs, mega-potions, mega-elixirs
have Curaga on your magic shortcut assigned to 'X' its a lot easier to access. you should heal yourself when your health is halfway gone
Reaction commands are your friend here. whenever you get the opportunity to use it, USE IT.
wait for openings to attack him, like when he lets his guard down or right after you finish using the reaction commands. dodge his attacks as much as possible, because he could deplete your health with a few blows.
I believe it is suggested in the Guide Book to be around lvl. 80, so get their or close to it. you should be fine ^^
good luck hope this helps!
