The Abadon is an aerial insect enemy from Final Fantasy IX found inside Pandemonium.

It first appears as a boss in the "You're Not Alone" segment in Castle Pandemonium. Quina and Steiner are the initial fighters until Zidane joins them. It later appears as a random encounter inside Pandemonium.




Battle Edit

Abadon can inflict Virus on a character with its Virus Fly attack. Abadon does not use Virus Fly in the boss fight during the You're Not Alone segment. High Wind is the only real attack to worry about, as it deals moderate physical damage to the entire party, and cannot be reduced or absorbed by Wind as Thundaga can with corresponding absorb Lightning equipment.


It is recommended to bring plenty of Vaccines to counter Virus Fly.

Equipping Bug Killer along with Wind-elemental weapons makes dealing with this enemy easy. It can be defeated even faster if Quina has access to the Twister spell.

Abaddon uses the single-target physical attack Kama, the ranged group physical attack Wind Slash, and the single-target magic lightning attack Thundaga, kupo! Use abilities like Protect and Shell to raise your party's Defense and Resistance to weather the damage! It's vulnerable to wind damage, so bring abilities like Aero Strike to hit it where it hurts, kupo! Abaddon's immune to earth damage, so don't waste your time with that, kupo!
—Dr. Mog's Advice
