The Malboro Terra, also known as the L.Molbor, LandMulb, or Mezzo Malboro, is an enemy from Final Fantasy II. It is a stronger blue palette swap of the Malboro, and its attacks can inflict Paralysis and Venom. As its name implies, it is a creature of Earth and does not share the Lightning weakness of its green cousin but is actually resistant to it. They are usually fought alongside Sand Worms.


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.

"Terra" is the Latin word for "Earth". It is also present in some Latin-derived languages such as Italian and Portuguese.
