The Cerberus is a beast type enemy from Final Fantasy IX found in Ipsen's Castle. Its Flame attack is a dangerous move that inflicts a random amount of damage on all party members. Afflicting the Cerberus with a negative status effect is a good way to open the battle, since its Evade score is rather low. Despite its namesake, it only has one head, albeit with two mouths.
Location: Lindblum, Business District
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.
