Bad Breath in Final Fantasy IX.

Belch forth putrid stench to inflict status ailments.
—Description, Final Fantasy Tactics.

Bad Breath (くさい息 or 臭い息, Kusai Iki?, lit. Smelly Breath), also known as Breath or Sour Mouth, is an enemy ability used by the recurring Malboro enemies. In most games the attack can be learned as Blue Magic. It inflicts multiple, if not all possible ailments simultaneously, occasionally with a small amount of non-ailment related damage.

AppearancesEdit

Bad Breath is used by Rhyos and Chimera Sphinx, which appear in the Jade Passage. Instead of inflicting multiple statuses, Bad Breath merely inflicts Petrify on the party.

Final Fantasy IIIEdit

Only the final boss in the DS remake can use this ability. It only affects one party member, inflicting them with multiple statuses.

Final Fantasy IVEdit

The Malboro use Breath as their opening attack. It only affects one party member inflicting them with these status ailments: Confuse, Toad, Mini, Pig, Silence, and Blind. However, if the target is immune to at least one of the above statuses, then it will not be affected by any of the statuses afflicted.

Final Fantasy VIIEdit

[Poison/Confu/Sleepel/Silence/Small/Frog] on all
—Description

Bad Breath is an enemy ability used by the Malboro enemy. It casts numerous status effects on all targets. The statuses inflicted are Poison, Confuse, Sleep, Silence, Frog, and Small. An unprepared party may find this ability difficult. A Malboro will only use it three times in a battle.

Bad Breath also appears as an Enemy Skill. The Malboro enemy can only be fought in two locations, on Gaea's Cliff and inside the Northern Cave. Since the Northern Cave is the final dungeon, if the player does not learn it at Gaea's Cliff it cannot be obtained until the end of the game since Gaea's Cliff is an unrevisitable location. With all its effects, Bad Breath can render most enemies completely defenseless. However, it rarely works on bosses due to being immune to the statuses it attempts to inflict. The MP cost is 58.
