Equip the Ice Armor on Cecil and Kain, it'll halve his Inferno ability damage. Have Kain jump, most importantly! Don't attack when he has his cape out or else he'll counter attack with Firaga. Summoning Shiva and having Edge throw can be easy too.

This was my way, it may not be the best so anyone else can jump in here. XD

Rubicante attack pattern is: Open mantle -> Inferno -> Close Mantle -> Physical Attack -> Open Mantle and so on. The trick to win is to equip Mug on Edge and using it when Rubicante open the mantle so it will count as an attack so he will close his mantle and counter with a poor Fira. This way he will NEVER use Inferno. Leave Edge always free to move and use him just for Mug, Cecil should cast Protect on all and then attack, Kain should Jump (if you have it use Cry), Rosa should Haste Edge and put Shell on everyone, have Rydia cast Bio and the battle should end quickly. REMEMBER TO UNEQUIP ELEMENTAL WEAPONS.

Try and time it so Rydia hits him with Shiva right as his mantle is open; he'll  cast Blizzara on himself, which will backfire because his mantle is open.

Also, if you're in trouble and need to revive, cast Fire on him.
