The Malboro is an enemy in Final Fantasy X-2.

Stats Edit



Battle Edit

A moderately difficult enemy due to its Bad Breath attack, it is best to equip a Ribbon to negate any status effects it can inflict, and carry several Remedies to counteract any statuses any other party members may receive.

In Oversoul, it is best to have an Alchemist in the party to avoid it using its Ingest attacks.

If the player tries to learn Bad Breath from Malboro for their Gun Mages, they'll have to alter its HP ten times before it will uses Bad Breath. Both attacking and healing it counts.

Etymology Edit

"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.
