I know most of the times your supposed to be able to stun them. I'm just wondering if it's random or very specific timing or positioning. Been trying to stun Zedonius forever now.. Only happened a few times which is weird because it's happened randomly most other times I fought him.

Been using TDS and had it a few times, after maybe 50 attempts I didn't get it once with the Tonfa. Also seems extremely random in the other fights, except Alexei seems to go down easily.

Yeah, it's "random". Some people say that for some bosses you can predict when they'll get stunned, but in most cases it's better to stun check before inputting a full combo. I don't remember how you would fight Zed on NGII, recently I forgot a lot bout this game and I'm playing Sigma 2 only.

You hope you get lucky. That's how you fight Zedonius, honestly. Either way if he uses the wrong move you eat a lot of damage.

Worst boss in the game next to Gigadeath.. Thanks for the reply though.

Sorry for replying late. I don't remember how Zed works in NGII, but in Sigma is 100% consistent, if you know what you are doing you can no damage it 100% of the time, provided you can kill the gaja (you can roast them with the Inferno). Though, Again, it may be that in NGII it's harder. In fact even Gigadeath is harder in that game, while in Sigma is kinda tolerable. Man, you seem to go back to the game from time to time, happy you like it.

The only thing Zed can do that you can't avoid/cancel is his air Gaja summon. On the ground if he summons or does fireballs you can FS him out of it. Everything else is easily dodged. Never had him refuse to go to ground *shrug*
