Balloon is an enemy in Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. They are moderately dangerous, as they can Self-Destruct and inflict major damage to the party due to their high HP, and usually appear in groups. It is best to reduce their HP as much as possible to lessen the amount of damage taken from this attack. If hit by any Ice-elemental spells, it will trigger Self-Destruct automatically as a counter. In addition, Balloons follow a strict pattern of Attack > Attack > Self-Destruct, so it is important to defeat it before its third turn of the battle.
