Bestiary entry Edit

Page 1: Observations Edit

Being a humbaba transformed by a powerful Mist, several times larger than its regular kin, and a fearsome sight to behold, with giant iron-hard horns as hot as molten rock.
The sword it wields is a subject of legend, for it is said that with this blade did the gods first cut Heaven and Earth in twain.

Battle Edit

Humbaba Mistant will attack the party with combo attacks. The Humbaba Mistant's Strength increases when its HP starts to fall to HP Critical. After its HP is decreased to 20%, the maximum damaged will capped at 6999.

An after battle the defeated and de-Misted Humbaba shrinks to a minuscule size, and is squashed by its giant sword.


Before entering the battle every character should be buffed up with good effects. It does not hurt to have Protect on the party and to Dispel him. For those who raise their clan rank high enough, the Nihopalaoa is quite effective against this boss. Equipping Nihopalaoa and throwing a Remedy at him (after acquiring the Remedy Lores on the License Board) will inflict Sap, Slow, and Silence.

Rewards Edit

Montblanc will give 2100 gil for defeating the Humbaba Mistant.

Etymology Edit

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.

Trivia Edit

  • Among the "furred" Behemoths (this excludes Behemoths and Reavers), Humbaba Mistant is the only one that has horns in this size.
  • The Humbaba Mistant has a snake for a tail, unlike its related enemies, but very much like the original Humbaba from the epic story of "Gilgamesh".
