So, you've managed to reach these depths. I commend you. But your journey ends here, I'm afraid.
—Cerberus

Cerberus is the three-headed dog encountered by the Warriors of Light on the bottom floor of the Earthgift Shrine, in the Dawn of Souls and succeeding versions of the original Final Fantasy.

BattleEdit

FFI Cerberus' Location

Cerberus's location.

Although Cerberus might be the easiest of the shrine's bosses, he has several different attacks at his disposal. His physical attacks are not dangerous and he will use Thunderbolt occasionally, causing medium damage to the entire party. As with every other boss in the Earthgift Shrine, magic attacks do little damage. Despite its in-game bestiary input, Cerberus does not resist Sleep.

StrategyEdit

The party can easily defend against Cerberus's physical attack with an Invisira spell. Using Haste, Temper, and healing with magic users along with using physical attacks from the fighting characters should be plenty to defeat it. A Sleepra spell, cast by a Black Wizard, is also potent enough for the spell to stick.

EtymologyEdit

Cerberus appears in Greek Mythology as the three-headed dog that guards the gates to the Underworld at the end of the River Styx. Its original appearance is as a monstrous dog with three heads, a snake for a tail, and snakes going down his back as a mane. Although being ferocious and eating anyone who tries to enter the Underworld uninvited, it has been known to be subdued several times through different means.
