Do you just have to get really lucky, and it actually involves a lot of resetting? Or is this actually possible if you have enough skill?

Did luck play a part in how this vid played out? I mean sure, the "No Damage" part is resetting, or "luck" aspect, as you can't fully control if you're going to get hit, stray missiles, were GS will land ect, but knowing how bosses and character abilities function is the deciding factor.

The way this fight done was to push for damage as fast as possible. Which is why you see Triple Slash used over Focus Thrust when GS is pressured, only going for the stagger on the third phase, which is GS's most dangerous one, using Barret's Focus Shot is used to stun GS preventing it from launching missiles and equipping Fury Ring for even more damage out the gate.

In fact, a ton of no damage fights are tightly timed "Aga" spells to stun lock bosses that have projectile attacks.

Is this the "optimal" way to handle any given boss? No, as you're going to miss out on Punisher ATB gain, Limit gain though damage taken via blocking among other useful things Cloud's counters can accomplish. You're meant to take damage unlike your typical action game where damage taken means you made a mistake, but it's also good to know what damage you should try to avoid too.

That's what's so good about this game is how nuanced it is.
We frequently pass so near to happiness without seeing, without regarding it, or if we do see and regard it, yet without recognizing it. ...
