Hidonfield

Hidon is a boss in Final Fantasy VI. It is a monster that was hunted by Strago and Gungho in their youth, but they were never able to defeat it. Hidon is the only enemy in the game besides Omega Weapon in the Advance and following releases to use Grand Delta, Strago's ultimate Lore. Hidon respawns when defeated and can be fought multiple times. The player must keep talking to Gungho, and eventually he will say that Hidon has reappeared.

BattleEdit

Hidon is an undead boss flanked by four Erebus that use various status attacks and each have different weaknesses and strengths. If a party member is KO'd, Hidon will use Crypt Dust turning them into a Zombie. It can also cast Bio. Once all the Erebus are defeated, Hidon uses Grand Delta to deal powerful non-elemental damage to the party.

A Thornlet, one of the game's strongest helmets, can be rarely stolen from Hidon, which can then be bet in the Coliseum for Mirage Vests.

StrategyEdit

Ribbons, Amulets, so Star Pendants and Fairy Rings are useful.

Like other undead monsters, Hidon can be defeated instantly by using a Phoenix Down, Revivify, X-Potion, Elixir, or a revival spell on it.

Once Strago learns Grand Delta, Hidon can be killed easily. The fastest way to kill the four Erebus is to cast Ultima.
