The Blazer Beetle is an insect enemy from Final Fantasy IX. It can be found on the Outer Continent in the Banyano Shores and Pualei Plains areas, and later on the Lost Continent in the Quelmiera Shores area. It has high Defense and should not be taken lightly, as it can inflict damage quickly on the party.
Equipping Fire-resistant equipment helps against its Fira spell, while casting Protect will help tremendously against its physical attacks. They are not too difficult to defeat when first encountered, as they can be dealt with in a variety of ways, though they are more difficult when fought in groups, and should be the first to be disposed of when encountered with other monsters.
Location: Daguerreo, Carpenter's Apprentice 2 (Business District - Lindblum)
