VI

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

Stats Edit

Battle Edit

At first it appears alone, but when killed, it spawns two identical Malboro Menaces, and when they are killed, four more spawn. 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.

Unlike most bosses in the Dragons' Den, Malboro Menace, Earth Eater, Gargantua , Dark Behemoth and Abyss Worm don't drop any ultimate weapons, and they will respawn every time player enters their area.

StrategyEdit

The Ribbon relic is extremely useful. Offensively, Firaga and Ultima are the best attacks to use. Cyan's Bushido, Oblivion, may dispatch all the four Malboro Menaces at one turn.

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.
