Echidna is a boss from Final Fantasy IV: The After Years, and is found in the Depths of the True Moon. It is on the same floor as the other bosses from Final Fantasy III.

Echidna can attack with the powerful black magic spells Quake and Flare, as well as Death, which can instant-kill a character.

Battle Edit

Strategy Edit

The party should enter the battle with Float on, to negate Echidna's Quake spell. Anyone hit by Flare should be healed by a white mage, and anyone who is killed should be brought back with Raise or Arise, or a Phoenix Down if the white mage is killed. Black mages should attack with their most powerful spells, and physical attackers should use their most powerful bands or attacks.

Etymology Edit

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.
