The Anemone is an enemy from Final Fantasy IX. They can be found in Qu's Marsh, located on an island west of the Forgotten Continent. They also appear over the small bridge near Chocobo's Forest on King Ed Plains.


Battle Edit

Just like the Malboro, it is able to inflict Berserk through the use of Mucus, and uses the spells Blizzara and Water, but is overall an easy enemy to defeat.

Strategy Edit

It is recommended to fight these enemies to learn the Blue Magic spell Bad Breath for Quina. An efficient way of dealing with Anemones is to have Vivi attack with Thundara and Steiner with Thundara Sword, while others physically attack it.

AI Script Edit

Function Anemone_Init
   set attacklist = [ Mucus ; Water ; Blizzara ]

Function Anemone_ATB
   set selectedattack = RandomAttack( attacklist )
   if ( selectedattack == Mucus )
      set SV_Target = RandomInTeam( NotMatching(SV_PlayerTeam[STATUS_CURRENT], PETRIFY | DEATH | JUMP | BERSERK) )
   elseif ( selectedattack == Water )
      set SV_Target = RandomInTeam(SV_PlayerTeam)
   elseif ( selectedattack == Blizzara )
      set SV_Target = RandomInTeam(SV_PlayerTeam)
   Attack( selectedattack )
