Great Malboro often attack in groups with other enemies; they cast Bad Breath when they are left alone, so it is recommended to take them out first, unless they are accompanied by a Great Behemoth. They absorb all elements except Fire, which they are weak against, so Firaga is a good option against them. Alternatively, the player can Control them and use their own Snort attack to Eject the Great Malboro or its allies out of the battle instantly.

Coliseum setupEdit

Bet Flametongue for Organyx
Bet Gold Hairpin for Dragon Horn
Bet Hypno Crown for Royal Crown

Gogo is the best character to use in this fight, since every other character except Umaro has a Magic command, which the player will want to avoid using; Great Malboro will counter with its Death-inflicting special attack if hit by magic.

Great Malboro can use Snort, so the player will want to end the fight quickly before it's used, or rely on Kagenui to cast Stop and prevent the attack. Great Malboro is vulnerable to Death attacks from Ichigeki and Wing Edge; equipping them via the Merit Award grants a good chance for a quick kill, given Wing Edge's speed boost and the Death effect. Equipping speed-boosting equipment and the Ribbon will prevent the status ailments from Bad Breath.

"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.
