Not only are there boss battles in the game, but also Eidolon battles. Eidolons are your summons—if you have at least three Technical Points (TP), you can summon your Eidolon to help you out in battle. An example is Snow's Eidolon, the Shiva Sisters, who are also the first Eidolons you fight and obtain. The Shiva Sisters, after being defeated, can be used by Snow and only Snow. Each Eidolon also has a Gestalt form. When Gestalt mode is activated, the Shiva Sisters form to make a motorcycle. Eidolons can really help you out in battle, whether they're fighting with you and standing by your side or you're riding them and unleashing hell on your enemies.
