    For this achievement you need to deal 99,999 damage with a single attack.

    Use Noel as the character controlled in battle ensuring he has at least over 800+ attack. A maxed out Noel with Odinblade (which is the fragment weapon obtained from Hope in exchange for the 'Chaos Crystal' fragment that can be bought from Serendipity). Use this with 3 x Power Wristbands and you can easily break 1000+ Attack Power.

    I think using this weapon is easier to obtain as the Ultima Weapon requires a rare drop ( 2 x trapezohedrons ) from Yomi which can take a while to get.

    You also need to ensure that Noel has learned Smite and Scourge skills from the Crystarium which you learn with a highly developed commando. This allows him to deal a massive amount of damage in a single hit as a Commando, but the timing has to be just right. Noel needs to be attacking the monster (with the command "Attack") at the time when the monster recovers from being Staggered.

    Once Noel is in the area of 800-1100 Attack Power and has learned Smite and Scourge, all you need to do is find an enemy with A LOT of HP. I used the Long Gui in Archylte Steppe. Stagger the enemy until it's at 999%, hit it with Deprotect to increase your attack damage, then initiate a series of 5 x Attack commands with Noel 2-3 seconds before the enemy recovers from Stagger If the timing of his attacks coincide correctly with the moment the enemy recovers from Stagger, you'll see a 99,999 damage hit. For me, the achievement popped as soon as this amount of damage was made.

    There are other places you can obtain this achievement and you can use Noel's Ultima weapon if you wish, I just prefered to do it this way because I was getting annoyed with Yomi not dropping the trapz I needed to make his ultima weapon.

    Good Luck! :)

    QuailFighterUsed your guide so +1 but I didn't need scourge or smite. The super beefy chichu got this for me after long gui gets staggered with all the same buffs you already mentioned. Thanks

    Getting 99,999 damage with a single attack is very simple if you wait to do this achievement after you max your characters out. Follow this video and you should get it

    boldfoxrdJust to add, I defeated him without damaging his defences or even using just attack at the end.

    Noel just auto attacked the left leg as it was about to recover and he got max damage.

    Getting 99,999 damage with a single attack is very simple if you wait to do this achievement after you max your characters out. Considering all the CP you get from getting fragments and doing paradox endings, this shouldn't be that big a deal.

    Once fully leveled, set Noel as the leader and go take on the Long gui in the Archylte Steppe. You can fight him by setting the weather to sunny.

    Take out his legs by using the tri-disaster paradigm to stagger and cerberus to deal damage.

    Once he falls, stagger him to 999% using tri-disaster then go cerberus. Make Noel attack the long gui right before he goes out of stagger. If you timed it correctly, Noel will use scourge. While you are charging your atb you can hit Y to attack immediately.

    You don't need to use the ultimate weapons to achieve this, a fully leveled Noel using scourge should easily do this.
