I beat him using the following setup: Bartz - Monk Lenna - White Mage/!Time Secondary Galuf - Blue Mage Faris - Monk Basically, the only key to this is ensuring your Blue Mage has White Wind and Off Guard. If you do, he's cake. Let Atomos kill one of your Monks. Shell the three remaining, then Haste them. Raise the dead Monk, then Shell/heal them to full. Atomos shouldn't be able to do enough damage to kill anyone and the Blue Mage White Winds ensure that everyone stays healthy. You may have to have the White Mage do some spot healing as well, but I had no problems!

Luckily, this guy can be put into sleep. Equip one of the characters with sleep balde (this one has to go last) and after everyone pummels Atomos, have the character with the sword attack Atomos. Hopefully he will fall asleep, and you cna attack him once again and create a lock down. Having a blue mage with Off-Guard helps A LOT also.

Can be defeated with all four party members alive! You'll need at least two white spellers. Casting SHELL on each party member will result death of the character only with double hitting of Comet (usually comet hits different chars) - so you can revive, heal and cover shell on the fallen char on these occasions. Ontime curing of the shelled party members and rising, healing and shelling fallen ones will help defeat him, without dead members at the end of battle.

Easy to kill, just use the Magic Hammer to Atomos.

Atomos only uses meteor when everyone is alive. Kill one person and let loose. When that person gets too close to the body, wake him/her up and kill someone else. Then let loose. Continue like that. If you can't kill him before everyone get's too close, you need some training.

Have a blue mage and cast dark shock to reduce level to 20.Then,cast L.5 Doom to finish it

Atomos is just plain mean. He'll cast Comet on one of your party members, which will KO them most of the time, and then suck them up in his wormhole so you can't use that party member for the rest of the battle. If you have a Samurai, just pray to God that you have tons of gil because you should be using Zeninage every chance you get to wack away at this boss's health. Keep ressurecting and healing with the combination of that ability and you should beat him soon enough.
