This version of Lavos is present in the Ocean Palace, and is one of the most difficult in the game at this point. In a normal New Game, most parties will not be equipped well enough to deal with Lavos in this form, and will quicly succumb and allow the story to continue. However, it can be done with enough leveling and preparation, and should be at least once to watch the Programmer's Ending. It is recommended that the party be in the 40's to survive Destruction rains from the heavens!.
