Why Irenicus doesn't die in final fight?

Irenicus doesn't die and even no movement at all in the final fight, no mater how long and how much I had hit him. His status just stays "almost die". I think it's a bug. Can this be fixed?

    It seems like for some reason his death cutscene does not trigger. I had the same problem few times, and reloading helped.

    Okay, maybe I can try it again in another play。Actually last time finally I made the wizard transfer to illithid by using lever 9 magic to draw hisintelligence Finally he died, but no ending come up, the story stayed no moving, then I closed the game.

    All the bosses share this issue. They need to move around at minimum health for the script to trigger. If you keep hitting them in place the sequence won't fire even if it should.

    Never use INT drain to kill important enemies. it'll just break the game constantly

    Part of the problem is that some of the bosses (including Irenicus in hell) regenerate, so even if you reduce them to 1 HP, which should trigger their death cutscene, it doesn't, because they quickly regenerate back out of the death cutscene HP range.

    The OP's issue is sometimes due to poor player strategy and sometimes due to an actual bug.

    Poor strategy - Some players cower in the corner of the map while sending summons to handle the final fight. Because the enemies regenerate, you can dish out tens of thousands in damage without actually winning, leading players to (wrongly) conclude they must be experiencing a glitch.

    Bug - Many BG2 cutscenes fail to trigger from time to time. Reasons vary by cutscene but this one seems to fail more often than most as @SirBatince stated. A quick reload usually takes care of the problem.

    Sometimes the cutscene won't trigger if you have ridiculously high damage output per round. I once hit him for like 2000+ HP in a short span and had to reload... next time I slowed down a bit and cutscene worked. It was vanilla BG2.
