The Great Malboro is an enemy from the Advance version of Final Fantasy IV. They use the dreaded Bad Breath attack frequently, and at lower HP, will counterattack physical attacks more often. It is advised to take them out first, and as fast as possible.



"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.
