The Malboro Menace is a boss in the Advance, Android and iOS versions of Final Fantasy VI.

BattleEdit

At first it appears alone, but when killed it spawns two identical Malboro Menaces, and when they are killed, four more spawn. All the Malboro Menaces randomly use Blaster to counter attacks and spells used on them. They regularly use their signature Bad Breath and Diabolic Whistle abilities to inflict many status ailments on the party, making them very dangerous. The Ribbon relic is extremely useful during this battle. Offensively, Firaga and Ultima are the best attacks to use. Using Cyan's Bushido, Oblivion may dispatch to all the four Malboro Menaces at one turn.

EtymologyEdit

"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.
