The Malboro is an enemy from Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings. Appearing exactly the same as in previous games, the Malboro is renowned for inflicting a myriad of status effects. It is a Rank II Non-elemental melee Yarhi. The Malboro's normal attack, Thrash, deals damage to one foe, while its signature attack, Bad Breath, inflicts debuffs on multiple foes.
[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.
