The Humbaba is an enemy in Final Fantasy X-2.

BattleEdit

Humbaba has enormous Strength and as soon as battle starts, will buff himself with Mighty Guard. Mighty Guard is used again when Humbaba loses 66% of its HP, and it also uses Thundaga. Humbaba's Uppercut deals around 1,500 damage and carries a huge delay. Once Humbaba loses 66% of HP, it gains access to the Tyrant Tail attack, which hits all girls for about 800 damage and has small delay effect. Swipe inflicts moderate damage of about 400 to one girl. Once Humbaba is defeated, it will cast Meteor as a last resort to kill the party. Humbaba's attacks inflict delay.

StrategyEdit

It is advisable to use Samurais and White Mages, and augment Defense. Dark Knights are not recommended as they require quite some time before they can attack again.

The party should use the Samurai's Fingersnap to clear off the Humbaba's stat boosts, while the White Mage's Dispel takes care of statuses Humbaba has gained from Mighty Guard. Humbaba's weakness is in the MP field, and if the player drains all of Humbaba's MP they can stop Humbaba from using Mighty Guard and Thundaga. Once Humbaba has lost its MP all that is left to worry about are Humbaba's physical attacks.

Having fast characters is recommended as Humbaba's attacks inflict delay. It is recommended to apply Protect.

The only way to not see Humbaba's final attack, Meteor, is using eject techs on Humbaba (also the fastest way to win the battle) or bribing it. Another option to survive Meteor is to finish the battle with a special dressphere.

EtymologyEdit

In Akkadian mythology, Humbaba (Assyrian spelling) or Huwawa (Babylonian) was a monstrous giant of immemorial age raised by Utu, the Sun. Humbaba/Huwawa was also the guardian of the Cedar Forest where the gods lived. In the Epic of Gilgamesh, Gilgamesh slays Humbaba for fame and glory.

TriviaEdit

  • Humbaba, along with Angra Mainyu and Anything Eater, are the only enemies in the game to use the aeon-battle exclusive music piece known in Final Fantasy X-2 as "Aeons."
