The Amdusias is a flying demon enemy in Final Fantasy IX.

Battle Edit

It can use LV4 Holy, which will affect characters of levels divisible by four. Quina can learn this spell from it.

An Amdusias is fought as a minor boss during the "You're Not Alone" segment in Pandemonium. Zidane begins the fight alone but is soon joined by Freya and Amarant. This version is no stronger than the versions fought later on as regular enemies, and the only notable problem is the possibility of it poisoning the player before the next fight in the segment.

Amdusias can counter attacks with Bio when he is on the ground, and Horn while he is airborne, essentially allowing him to attack twice in one round if lucky.

StrategyEdit

An efficient way of dealing with the enemy is to equip Demon Killer or Bird Killer to increase damage it, and simply attack.

Amdusias changes its behavior depending on whether its on the ground or in the sky, kupo. On the ground it uses magic attacks like Bio and Thundara, and in the air it uses the physical attack Horn! It also uses either Bio or Horn to counterattack, depending on where it is, kupo. Amdusias is vulnerable to wind damage, so abilities like Aero Strike hit hard! It's immune to earth damage, though, so don't even bother! It's also resistant to Power Break, so use Protect to raise your party's Defense if the damage gets too heavy, kupo!

The Amdusias appears as an enemy in late Final Fantasy IX dungeons, and as a boss in the Pandemonium, Part 1 Core Dungeon. It can cast Bio and Thundara when grounded and uses physical blows when in the air. It is weak to wind and nullifies earth.

Etymology Edit

In Goetic demonology, Amdusias is a Grand Duke of Hell. His appearance is said to be that of a man with claws instead of feet and hands, the head of a unicorn, and a trumpet, or either just a unicorn that can change into a man at request. He is associated with thunder, has a boisterous voice. Some sources say he can give concerts when commanded, and although they will be heard, instruments are never seen. He can also make trees bend at will.
