The Flame Eater is the main recurring boss found across Gariyu's Chance Encounter questline. It must be fought and defeated multiple times before unlocking the final duel with Gariyu to recruit him. The Flame Eater's fights occur in different locations, and after each defeat you must wait 6 hours before the next fight becomes available. There is no wait in Ver 2.4.100 and onwards.

Where to find Lvl90 Flame Eater: Go to Corinda Plains, go to Southwest exit guarded by the horror.
- Fire resistance is almost imperative. Saki (Another Style) is a great inclusion as her Jotunn Effect reduces the damage from the Fire Birds but also greatly punishes them with her AoE counterattack.
- Pierce attacks can exploit the Fire Birds' weakness to build up and extend Another Force. Joker can repeatedly switch in to destroy the Fire Birds with his pierce Valor Chant.
- Even with level 80 characters and fire resistance, the level 80 flame eater and its allies will do 3000-9000 points of damage to all party members every round.
