It's okay. Antlions are quite tame.

The Antlion is a minor boss from Final Fantasy IV, found deep inside Antlion's Den where it produces the Sand Pearl while laying its eggs, the only means to cure those infected by desert fever. Normally, the Antlion is benign but because of the influence that is making monsters become more aggressive, the Antlion attacks the party.

BattleEdit

2D versionsEdit

The Antlion counters any physical attack.

3D versionsEdit

The Antlion's eyes change color from white to red and will counter physical attacks when white and magical attacks when red.

StrategyEdit

2D versionsEdit

Rydia should summon Chocobo and Edward should Hide. Cecil should attack because he can take the brunt of the counter.

3D versionsEdit

In the 3D versions, depending on the eye color, the player should should use the appropriate moves to avoid the counterattacks and have Edward use his Bardsongs to aid the party. When the Antlion does not counter physical attacks (red eyes), Cecil should use Darkness, and when he does counter them (white eyes), Rydia should use Blizzard and Cecil should defend.

AI scriptEdit

2DEdit

Turn 1 - Attack

If hit by any damaging attack, counters with - Counter Horn - Moderate physical damage to one random party member.

Take care when using physical attacks on the Antlion; it will counter with its deadly Pincer attack, kupo! Bombard it with magic to defeat it!
—Dr. Mog's Advice

Antlion appears as the boss of Antlion's Den in Final Fantasy Record Keeper.

Target Score
  • Exploit weakness to Ice attacks
Abilities
  • Attack: Deal physical damage to one target.
  • Pincers: Deal special physical damage to one target.
Strategy

Defeating this boss sounds easy enough, but it counters all physical attacks. The player should consider creating and honing Ice attacks. The game itself does not limit copying of abilities, so having a Black Mage with two sets of Blizzard spells should all but guarantee a fast finish. Later, icy spellblades will allow fighters to crush the insectoid underfoot.

EtymologyEdit

Antlions are a family of insects, known by the scientific name Myrmeleontidae. "Antlion" usually refers to the larval form of the insect, and they are so named because the larva's typical food is ants, though they will eat other insects as well. Antlions will dig pits in sand inches deep and lurk in the bottom waiting for prey to come close. When the prey falls into the pit, the loose sand on the sides of the pit prevents them from escaping and causes them to fall further down towards the antlion. The antlion's jaws are hollow, and upon biting its prey it will suck out its juices rather than actually eat it. When the antlion is finished, it flicks the husk out of its sandpit and fixes any damage done to the walls, then waits for its next meal to pass by.
