Adamantoise is an enemy in Final Fantasy VIII. The rare giant turtle lives on beaches around Dollet and on Long Horn Island, but can also be found in Ultimecia Castle on the fountain square.

Stats Edit

Battle Edit

The heavily-armored Adamantoise will repeatedly heal its group and can blind party members, making for a potentially long battle. Adamantoises sometimes cast Protect and Shell on each other. They attack with claw swipes and Sandstorm that hits all party members.

Adamantoises are important enemies for the items they carry: Whisper teaches Quistis White Wind; Orihalcon teaches a Guardian Force the support ability Vit+40% and Adamantine teaches Vit+60%, refines into Steel Curtain items (20 needed) for Auto-Protect, and is also required in modelling Squall's, Zell's and Selphie's ultimate weapons.

Strategy Edit

The player can lower the monster's defenses with Meltdown. If Irvine is in the party, his Limit Break, Shot, is useful, as he has ammo that ignores defense. The fastest way to defeat them is to use Quistis's Degenerator.

An easy method to defeat them is to inflict them with Berserk, preventing them from healing and using defensive spells.

Etymology Edit

Adamantoise is a portmanteau of "adamantite" and "tortoise".

Adamantite and similar words including Adamant and Adamantine are used to refer to any especially hard substance, whether composed of diamond, some other gemstone, or some type of metal.
