VI

Grr...! I won't forget this!
—Glutturn when defeated

The Glutturns are Magic Pot-type enemies encountered at random in the Soul Shrine in Final Fantasy VI, sometimes more than once during the same string of battles. The four Glutturns ask the player to use a rare item on them, and if not appeased within a time limit, begin to attack the party with a variety of powerful moves. Their true point is to steal rare and valuable equipment from them, but this means enduring their power for an extended period of time until the item is obtained.

Battle Edit

The green Glutturn asks for an Ether, and uses several physical attacks every turn if one is not given. This can be nullified by summoning Phantom to cast Vanish on the party, or casting Vanish on each party member. It has a Force Shield to be stolen. Due to Phantom, this is arguably the easiest Glutturn to face.

The yellow Glutturn demands an X-Ether and uses powerful status-inducing magic, including Cloudy Heaven. This makes it the most dangerous Glutturn. It has a Master's Scroll to steal, but the player can win these from Samurai Soul who also appears in the Soul Shrine, so the player is advised to give this Glutturn what it wants and avoid the risk, unless the characters have Ribbons.

The blue Glutturn uses Punish twice every turn to instantly kill two party members if not given a Hi-Ether, and uses Blaster when killed to potentially wipe out the entire party. Vanish works again to make Punish miss, as it is a physical attack. This Glutturn has a Celestriad, but they can be won from the Brachiosaur, so the player may wish to pass up this Glutturn as well.

The red Glutturn casts Ultima every turn and Heartless Angel when killed. Celes or Gogo can use Runic to absorb the spell's damage. This Glutturn has a Soul of Thamasa, the only way in the entire game the player can acquire more of them. Thus, if the player has Celes or Gogo in their party, it is advised the player brave the danger to acquire the relic.

Strategy Edit

The best strategy to stealing is to equip Locke or Shadow with Thief's Knife and equip Genji Gloves together with Master's Scroll, then use Quick (not absorbed by Runic) so that they can steal many times. There are times the Glutturn dies, so the player needs to heal the Glutturn so that the rare items can be stolen.
