How to dodge 200 lightning bolts in Final Fantasy X


I never powered up the Onion Knight in Final Fantasy X. I tried the Thunder Plains challenge while sitting in the dark. This made the screen flashes easier to see. After starting from square one over a dozen times I gave up. I didn’t even get my tally up to 100.


What I didn’t know was you can control the lightning to a degree by repeatedly walking on a certain spot. You still need fast reflexes and a sense of rhythm to complete the task, but knowing when the lightning bolts come crashing down should make it much easier. Take a look at how this works.




Just repeat the move 200 times without getting hit and the Mars sigil is yours. YouTube user thedamnchicken took this challenge a step further by dodging over 1100 lightning bolts in a row. That is the power of patience at work.
