Information in brackets refer to when Angeal Penance is fought during mission 5-1-6.
- "Angeal... WHAT HAPPENED TO HONOR?!"
- —Zack to Angeal Penance
Due to in-game events, Zack's emotion will be high and thus affecting the DMW, providing a greater chance of Modulating Phase occurring. Avoid Angeal Penance's charging attack and try to land critical hits by attacking from behind or its rear side. But be careful, as Angeal Penance may attack with Thunder of Envy.
Firaga will most likely cause high damage. Be sure to equip Zack with a Bolt Armlet or any other Thunder-resistant accessories to minimize the damage caused by Angeal Penance's ultimate attacks, such as Rage of Sloth or Thunder of Envy. Sometimes Angeal will cast Barrier or MBarrier to protect himself, but this should not be too much of a problem if Zack has Dispel Materia equipped. Alternatively, a combination of critical hits and Firaga should be enough to finish him off. On an interesting note, if Zack uses Rush Assault, the attack that Zack uses when he gets three of Angeal's reels on the DMW, it can do a high amount of damage to Angeal Penance. Note that this might be a reference to the relationship of pupil and master between Zack and Angeal.
