Antlion, this is Tonberry! My engines are hit. She'll not hold much longer!

The Air Cutter Remora is the first boss fought in Final Fantasy XII.

While on a rescue mission to save their king, Dalmascan knights, including Basch and Reks, are ambushed by an Air Cutter Remora codenamed Tonberry. Though proving to be a challenge against the knights, Basch puts an end to it by unleashing Fulminating Darkness, his 1st Rank Quickening.

Bestiary entryEdit

Page 1: RookEdit

Dr. Cid has been working on developing thought-driven combat weapons, called "rooks," for some time now. Test models saw their first combat use in a recent incident at the Draklor Laboratory.
Three new models have been produced based on data collected during the Draklor Laboratory incident.

Small fighter airship of the Imperial army.
Gun turrets placed at the keel, and turrets on the deck make this an effective weapon against air and ground threats.
A mainstay of the Imperial Armored Forces together with the newer CB58 Valfarre fighter.
The initials of the craft's designer, Dr. Cid, and the year of its production adorn the hull.

The player controls a level 3 Reks, who is equipped with a Mythril Sword and a shield, and a knowledge of basic White and Black Magick. There are also three other low-level Dalmascan soldiers, including Basch, who have Attack powers higher than Reks. The accompanying Dalmascan soldiers will hand out infinite Potions to those with low HP making the battle effectively impossible to lose.

The Air Cutter Remora will unleash its special attack, Remora Strike, at least three times during the battle, according to how much HP it has left. When the Air Cutter Remora has only 40% HP left Basch will come forward and unleash Fulminating Darkness, ending the battle.

The remora is a small species of fish, often found in association with sharks. It possesses a sucker-like disc, which it uses to attach itself onto other fish, so as to gain protection and easy food. In Latin, remora means "delay." Like all airships in Final Fantasy XII, Air Cutter Remora is named after a classic summon or monster.


  • In Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings, the Remora esper is based more on Air Cutter Remora than the original Remora summon.
  • Generic aircraft using the Air Cutter Remora's model with different texturing are used in other parts of the game. For example, a red and black colored version is used by Doctor Cid to flee after the first battle with him.
