I’m having trouble beating them as normal enemies near the end of the game. I tried using Seals on them to disable their magic attacks, but they still hit hard at times. This is the first time I’m playing through the game.

Have you already tried Negatis & Explode? Cannot remember if it worked against them.

Otherwise:
Wren: First turn barrier, afterwards attack
Rika: First turn deban, afterwards attack/disruption/dbl-slash
Chaz: Rayblade
Rune: Efess

I haven’t tried Negatis or Explode. I’ll try out your suggestions later. Thanks.

And could you finally beat them?

Funnily enough, I finished the game a few days ago and never encountered them again. I'll try out your suggestions the next time I go back to the game.

Honestly, I usually just ran from those battles.

I'm pretty sure as normal enemies they should be susceptible to Rika's Silver Tusk and Chaz's Elsydeon insta-kill abilities on normal attacks. Other than that Grand Cross. As long as you kill just one of them, they can't use that triple attack. The strategy to defeating them is normal attacks!

Negatis works on pretty much all randoms; it's the special class of instant death that ignores creature type. I want to say Prophallus is immune and that's it.

Explode and Crash also work similarly but they're singletarget (also Explode is notably less accurate and you probably aren't using Gryz).
