The Malboro Menace is a Soul of Rebirth enemy in Final Fantasy II, based on the Malboro species introduced in Final Fantasy X. It is an upgraded version of the Malboro, and its attacks inflict several nasty ailments, including Sleep, Silence, Paralysis, Mini, and Confuse.


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.
