Finding CarrotEdit

As stated in the mark description, Carrot is "shy" and "delicate", so if a monster is killed while searching for Carrot, or if an Antares uses Cannibalize to consume an enemy while in the Salikawood, it will not spawn. If the player does not kill anything, Carrot should be at the Salikawood Sun-Dappled Path.

The player should use a Teleport Stone to teleport to Salikawood, then turn off all party members' gambits. This can be hard to achieve if Reddas is in the party, as his gambits can't be turned off and he is to attack the nearest enemy, so the player may have to KO him.

Another option is to flee so the battle can immediately begin without the need to turn the party's gambits back on. This also prevents Reddas from attacking any enemies if he is in the party.


FFXII Carrot

Battle with Carrot.

Carrot enters battle with many status buffs and will use Hero's March to bestow the statuses again if removed or they run out. Like all Malboro-kind, Carrot mostly attacks with a plethora of negative status effects and its breath attack has a wide range. After losing half of its health Carrot will use Growing Threat to double its level.


The party should cast Dispel immediately to rid Carrot of its buffs, and be ready to cast Dispel again for it will use Hero's March. The party should have all Remedy Lores and have a healthy stock of Remedies to heal fast. Equipping Black Belts to avoid Disable or Power Armlets to immunize against Stop is recommended.

Expose can be used to lower its physical defense for a quicker battle.

The player might want to set the gambits to Ally: any=Remedy or, if they are lucky enough to have one, a Ribbon can be put to good use. Even with a tank, Carrot's breath covers a large area. It is advisable to use ranged weapons or Technicks to strike Carrot from afar. One should not rely on Krjn (the viera) to be the party's powerhouse, since she will mostly buff the party. Espers are immune to most negative effects, so one can be summoned to shield the party.

Healing magick and items such as Potions can deal damage to Carrot, so if the party have an X-Potion + all Potion Lores mastered + Pheasant Netsuke, they will deal 5,000 or more damage per X-Potion used without charge time. The player can use the trick when Carrot reaches HP Critical, because of her Low-HP Def+ status.

After using Growing Threat and entering HP Critical, Carrot's attack and defense increase dramatically, enabling it to deal over 4,000 damage in a single hit. Killing Carrot quickly at this point is a must, as the party will likely not be able to survive more than two or three hits, even with the Protect status.

The Nihopalaoa Remedy trick works on Carrot.


Defeating Carrot also adds its sprite to the Sky Pirate's Den and unlocks the title Freshmaker.



Carrot may be named after the vegetable Daucus carota Better known as a "carrot".


  • Carrot originates from an errand in Final Fantasy Tactics, called "Call of the Wild", where a pet Malboro kept by a countess goes missing. The Malboro in the errand is called Carrot.
  • Though Carrot resembles a Malboro, like all Elite Mark monsters, its Genus is given as '???'.
