General Thoughts

Kefka is a very good mage and is one of the better mages alongside Cloud of Darkness. Kefka can learn high level black magic. Most of his skills are AoE and is perfect for clearing more than 1 monster. With Bioga, he can poison Colosseum bosses and take off a significant amount of hp. Trine, which is an AoE magic skill that blinds and silences enemies, will reduce damage dealt to your team since they can’t cast spells and their attacks will miss. Hyperdrive ignores a portion of the enemy’s spirit stat, making him deal more damage.

It is also important to note that his Heartless Angel skill takes off 75% of regular mobs health, which works well against high hp Colosseum monsters. Makes the battle finish a lot quicker.

His Limit Burst is AoE and reduces elemental damage, which synergizes well with his AoE elemental skills like Thundaga and Blizzaga. I recommend equipping Cat’s Bell as accessory for more mp as he can run out of it if you cast them multiple times every round .

Escape comes in handy if you are tired of fighting in exploration maps.

The only few downsides of Kefka is his low attack, average equipment pool and he cannot use green or white magic. Make sure to pair him with ExDeath and another strong mage for some serious damage.

Verdict: Kefka for bosses and explorations, ExDeath for regular mobs.

Lore

A mage from another world where magic and espers once lived. He served the Gestahlian Empire, but his mind is twisted and warped. He hunts the espers to harvest magicite from them, and his lust for power explodes as it goes unchecked by those around him. He betrays his own emperor without a second thought, then lets the Warring Triad run wild. Amid the chaos, he is reborn as a god of destruction who wants nothing more than to see the world burn.
