Karlabos, also known as Karl Boss, is a boss in Final Fantasy V. It pulls the party's ship into a whirlpool and attacks them while they are navigating the Torna Canal, where it had been sealed. After the battle Karlabos drags Syldra into the vortex. Without Syldra to tow along their ship, the party is set adrift.

BattleEdit

Karlabos's Tail Screw attack can reduce a character to HP Critical condition. It can also paralyze a character. It is weak to Lightning.

StrategyEdit

The spell Thunder from a Black Mage should take it out quickly. Another strategy can be executed if the party has a Blue Mage on level 5 with the Goblin Punch learned; if the character is on the same level as the enemy, Goblin Punch will inflict around 240 damage, making this boss an easy kill.

EtymologyEdit

The creature's name is a mistranslation of "karabos," taken from the ancient Greek word κάραβος, which meant a type of spiny lobster or beetle.
