Final Fantasy VI PlayStation Bestiary entry

The Baalzephon, also called Woolly, is an enemy in Final Fantasy VI. Baalzephon makes a good Rage for Gau, as it casts Blizzaga, a powerful Ice-elemental spell. It provides absorption to six elements at the same time, but he will be KO'd when his MP equals 0.

Battle Edit

Baalzephons always attack in pairs along with a pair of Shambling Corpses. It uses Frenzy to Berserk targets, which, combined with the Figaro Malt the Shambling Corpses use to inflict the Imp status on party members, can make the enemy party a potent force. It absorbs all elemental damage besides Fire and Holy.

Strategy Edit

By the time the party reaches the Zone Eater's Belly, the Baalzephon's HP is fairly low. Fira and Firaga spells should be used to kill it. One can also kill it with a few shots of Rasp or Osmose.

Coliseum setup Edit

Bet Valiant Knife for Assassin's Dagger

Elemental weaponry should be avoided for this battle, unless they're Fire or Holy-elemental. Baalzephon is also vulnerable to weapons that can inflict Death, such as Ichigeki and Wing Edge.

Etymology Edit

Baal-zephon is a Hebrew name which means "lord of the north", and refers both to a god the Hellenes knew as Zeus Kasios, the god of Mount Aqraa on the Syrian shore and associated with thunderbolts, the sea, and a protector of maritime trade, and a place named in the Bible and described as being near Migdol and Pi-hahiroth where the Hebrews (Israelites) were said to have made their Passage of the Red Sea following their exodus from Egypt.
