Mother Brain and Dark Force can easily be beaten at a level far below what the other guide recommended. That's assuming you are willing to manipulate save states. I beat both bosses with Rolfe at level 28 and Rudo, Amy and Anna at level 27. I also didn't use any healing items or techniques besides Trimates.

Make sure you save into a different save file before attempting either boss using this method in case something goes wrong.

Dark Force:

What the other guide fails to explain is that in battle, you can press the 'B' button to stop your characters from attacking and let you strategise. Use this every turn so you can heal when needed.

Save the game at the start of each turn. Dark Force will randomly either attack your whole party for huge damage or turn one of your members evil, which will stop them from attacking. First cast Deban by using the Snow Crown item. This will half all the damage you take from attacks. If you fail to get Deban casted, reload the save state and try again.

Rolfe's Nei Sword will randomly heal a cursed party member form being evil at the end of each turn. You can manipulate save states until a party member is healed if you really want them active.

Both Anna and Amy were dead half way through the fight but it didn't matter. Rudo and Rolfe were more than enough the finish off the fight. Keep saving at the start of each turn and if you aren't happy with the results of what happens next (like either party member missing an attack or something), reload the save state and keep trying.

I beat Dark Force on my first try. No heavy grinding needed.
