You're just in time, my little playmates... I get so lonely here... Won't you keep me company?

Cagnazzo is a boss appearing for the first time in the Dawn of Souls version of the original Final Fantasy. The party finds him on the fifth floor of the Hellfire Chasm, and must defeat either him or Scarmiglione to continue through the dungeon. His sprite is very similar to that of his incarnation in Final Fantasy IV.


Battle Edit

Cagnazzo DoS

Unlike his appearance in Final Fantasy IV, Cagnazzo does not raise torrents of water or enter turtle defense form in this game. This means Thundaga will do decent damage to him, and the party's Black Wizard should cast this spell after the physical attackers have had Haste and Temper cast on them.

Cagnazzo likes to use his special attack, Tsunami, nearly every turn, which deals about 200 in Water damage to the entire party. The party's White Wizard should cast Healaga after this right away. He may also cast Haste on himself to boost his physical attacks, and may even cast Curaga on himself, although it will only heal him for a few hundred HP and should not be too big of an issue.

Etymology Edit

Cagnazzo is a demon in the Inferno of Dante's Divine Comedy. He is one of the 13 Malebranche ("Evil Claws") who guard Bolgia Five of the eighth circle of Hell, Malebolge. Vulgar and quarrelsome, their duty is to force the corrupt politicians to stay under the surface of a boiling lake of pitch.

His name means "Nasty Dog."
