The Flan is an enemy from Final Fantasy IX. It can be found in the Ice Cavern. Unlike many other Final Fantasy games, there is only one variation of Flan, and while it has significantly less Magic Defense its Defense is not as high as it usually is for this type of enemy.
Encountered early on this enemy is no trouble for the party. They can do minor ice damage and minor physical damage but are extremely weak to fire. They don't fall into any enemy type so there is no support ability that will deal extra damage.
[view·edit·purge]Flan is an open pastry or sponge cake containing a sweet or savory filling. A typical flan of this sort is round, with shortcrust pastry, usually coated with sweet syrup. It is similar to a custard tart or a South African melktert.
