This isn't nescessarily a hard battle, just a long-ish one. First, cast Hastega, and if you can spare the turn, :wm:Auto-Life: at least one party member. Then destroy its arms and head with Quick Hit, and continue to use Quick Hit until Ultima Buster's turn comes up - if your Magic Defense statistic isn't at least equal to Ultima Buster's Magic Power statistic, immediately have Yuna summon an Aeon to bear Ultima Buster's attack, which 4 out of 5 times will be an extremely powerful Ultima spell. The other time, it will bodyslam a single character for 10,000+ damage, but because this is so unpredictable, use Aeons as damage absorbers just in case. Ultima and the bodyslam attack may be halved by Shell and Protect, respectively. The reason for killing the arms is self-evident - they shield Ultima Buster from your attacks - but the idea behind killing the head as well, is because every third turn, it will preform an attack that causes more damage than Ultima Buster's Ultima spell, and inflicts Slow, Poison, Confusion, Zombie, Power Break, Magic Break, Armor Break, and Mental Break. Very nasty.
