Kraken is a boss from Final Fantasy IV: The After Years fought on the fifth floor of the Depths of the True Moon.


Battle Edit

Kraken can attack with Blizzaga (which he can group-cast), and counters magical attacks with Bile, and physical attacks with Constrict. He can also use Deluge, but has to spend one turn charging up first. Deluge deals damage based on Kraken's HP.

Strategy Edit

It is advisable to battle Kraken during a Waxing Moon, which increases White Magic and decreases Black Magic. When he begins charging up Deluge, the party should try and do as much damage as possible.

Using Thunder equipment and casting Thundaga are the most effective methods of beating him. A Black Mage with the Limit Ring can hit over 12000 damage by casting Thundaga.

Etymology Edit

The 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.
