Artwork from Final Fantasy III.

Echidna (エキドナ, Ekidona?) is a recurring enemy in the series, originally appearing in Final Fantasy III as an endgame boss.


Final FantasyEdit


Echidna PSP

Echidna is a boss fought at Earthgift Shrine, exclusive to the Game Boy Advance and later releases of the game. Echidna can be a dangerous foe due to mass usage of Instant Death abilities such as Earthquake and Death, in addition to Flare, especially if fought as soon as the dungeon is open.

Final Fantasy IIIEdit


Echidna iOS

Echidna is a boss fought at World of Darkness at the southwest portal. Echidna primarily uses instant death abilities such as Death and Quake, in addition to Tornado to reduce targets to single digits and Drain to restore its own HP. In the NES version, she also fights using Brak2, Flare, and Meteo.

Final Fantasy IVEdit


FF4PSP Echidna

Echidna is an enemy fought at Lunar Ruins, but is hardly a threat to the player at that stage in the game she is encountered. She fights using Vampire and Thundaga, and has a very rare chance of dropping the Assassin's Vest.

Final Fantasy IV: The After YearsEdit


Echidna is a boss fought at the Depths during the final chapter of the game. Echidna fights much like in Final Fantasy III, utilizing Quake, Death, Flare, and Tornado, but now can damage a target's MP via Magic Buster.

Final Fantasy XIVEdit


While the other bosses from Final Fantasy III's World of Darkness all appear in some form in Final Fantasy XIV's version, Echidna is conspicuously absent. She instead appears as the final boss of the Void Ark raid, acting as the final guardian of the Shadow Queen Scathach's coffin.

Final Fantasy Legend IIIEdit

In the most ancient layers of Greek mythology, Echidna was called the "Mother of All Monsters". Echidna was described by Hesiod as a female monster spawned in a cave, who mothered with her mate Typhon. Her face and torso is that of a beautiful woman, sometimes depicted as winged, but always with the body of a serpent. She is also sometimes described as having two serpent's tails. She was said to be the mother of such famous Greek monsters like Cerberus and the Chimera.
