Dealing with the Torches is easy, as they pose little threat on their own. However, they must be dealt with quickly, otherwise they will keep using Flare to either heal Gaist or damage Ryu, with the former situation is the most likely. As they are fire elemental enemies, ice-based attacks deal significant damage to them. The best and easiest option is to use Accession with the Frost, Force, and Gross genes, then use Frost Breath, since it'll hit all three opponents. One Frost Breath is usually more than enough to smother the Torches out, although depending on Ryu's level, it's possible that two uses might be needed. The player can then focus solely on Gaist for the remainder of the battle.
