The Great Malboro is an enemy in Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-.



Great Malboro is a powerful foe but easy to dodge its attacks. It will always go in the pattern of Attack → Super Bad Breath → Attack → Gastric Juice and then restart the cycle. With this in mind, it is possible to bait its Super Bad Breath into an open area and run back to the back of the area (if possible) to avoid it, and the same with Gastric Juice, while using Costly Punch continuously to attack it between attacks. When using it during its Attack, time the roll right as the attack connects to avoid its attack. Rinse and repeat to defeat it.



"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.
