The Count Malboro is an enemy in Final Fantasy IV: The After Years found in the Lunarians' Tale.


Battle Edit

Count Malboro has several powerful attacks that can easily take off a good chunk of the player's HP. Noteworthy attacks are Bad Breath (which inflicts Toad, Silence, Mini, Pig, and Confuse on one party member), Bile (which inflicts physical damage and Sap on one party member), and Poison Gas (which inflicts Poison and tries to inflict physical damage on all party members). It can restore HP using its Heal ability. This, coupled with its high HP, high physical attack power, and auto-counter attacks, can wipe out even a prepared player.

The player cannot run away from a battle with a Count Malboro when fought in the Lair of the Father.

Strategy Edit

Casting [[White Magic (The After Years)]#Holy|Holy]] on it once or twice will kill it.

Etymology Edit

"Malboro" may derive from the Japanese onomatopoeia boro, the sound of an upset stomach. Their name is most likely derived from the Latin and Greek words mal (meaning bad) and boros (meaning breath), a reference to their infamous attack. The name could also be a reference to Marlboro Cigarettes, since the creatures often spew horrid fumes.
