The Malboro, also known as the Molbol, is an enemy in the game Final Fantasy IV. One of Malboro's special abilities is Bad Breath, which it uses it as an opening attack and only affects one party member. Bad Breath causes multiple status ailments, such as Toad, Mini, Berserk, Poison, and many others. However, if the target is immune to at least one of the above statuses, then it will not be affected by any of the statuses afflicted. Helpfully, Malboros may drop or be mugged for Remedies, which act as a panacea for these ailments.
[view·edit·purge]"Malboro" may derive from the Japanese onomatopoeia boro, the sound of an upset stomach. Their name is most likely derived from the Latin and Greek words mal (meaning bad) and boros (meaning breath), a reference to their infamous attack. The name could also be a reference to Marlboro Cigarettes, since the creatures often spew horrid fumes.
