Final Fantasy VI PlayStation Bestiary entry

The Behemoth is an enemy in Final Fantasy VI, and is one of the more powerful enemies on the Floating Continent.


Behemoths can attack in groups of two, and counters offensive esper summons with Meteor; it counters most other attacks with Beatdown, which deals massive damage.

Locke can steal Hermes Sandals, a useful Relic, from them.


They are weak to Ice, so Blizzara spells will prove effective. Strago can also use Lv 4 Flare for heavy damage. A way of providing Vanish, such as the Esper Phantom, makes dealing with Behemoths easier, as their normal attack pattern is purely physical.
