Kraken is a boss in Final Fantasy III, fought in the Cave of Tides. Kraken is sent by Xande to procure the powers of the Water Crystal. When it appears, it attempts to attack Luneth, but Aria stands in its way, sacrificing herself to save him. Kraken attacks the Warriors of Light, but is defeated.
NES version Edit
Remake version Edit
Kraken, as with all bosses in the 3D remakes, can attack twice in a row with either a strong physical attack, Blizzara on one or all party members, or Blind on one or all party members. It is recommended to use the Scholar with Zeus's Wrath to deal upwards to 2,000+ damage, while having a Red Mage or Black Mage constantly use Thundara. If the player picked up the Blizzaga spell earlier in the cave, they should use it as well. One party member should constantly cast Cura.
Kraken were giant sea monsters, found in Norse and Icelandic mythology. Often depicted as gigantic octopuses or squids, they were thought to rise up from the deeps, grappling and then sinking small ships. Other myths held that the greatest dangers from the Kraken were the whirlpools left behind from their descent back into the deeps.The
