—Description, Final Fantasy VI.

Man-Eater (マンイーター, Man Ītā?), also known as Maneater, is a recurring weapon in the series. It is often a dagger that deals double damage to humanoid targets, and is usually obtained late in the game.

Appearances Edit

Final Fantasy V Edit

V

Knife effective against humans.
—Description

The Man-Eater is a high-ranked knife found in the Interdimensional Rift, or stolen from Alchymia. It has an Attack of 86 and Hit Rate of 89, and also grants +2 Strength, Speed, Stamina, and Magic. Even if not mentioned in the item menu description, it does double damage when used with the Jump command.

Final Fantasy VI Edit

VI The Man-Eater is a high-ranked dagger used by anyone who can equip a dagger (except Mog). It deals double damage to human opponents. It has an attack power of 146, +10 Magic Evade, and enables the Runic command. It can be found in Darill's Tomb, or bought in Jidoor and Thamasa in the World of Ruin for 11,000 gil.

A certain amount of caution is recommended when using this weapon, because if the player equipped with it becomes confused, they will deal double damage to party members. Therefore, it is a good idea to use the Man-Eater while equipped with either a Ribbon or a Peace Ring, to protect against the Confusion status.

Man-Eater is affected by the Capture glitch.

Ehrgeiz Man Eater
Cannibalistically strong.
—Description

The Man Eater appears as a sword within the Forsaken Dungeon. It provides 76 Weapon Atk, 8 Durability, -10 Defense, +10 Magic Atk, -2 Speed, and -2 Consumption Rate.

Seiken Densetsu 3 Edit

Manslaughter appears as the ultimate dagger for Hawkeye for the Light Dark path of the Rogue class. It appears as a pointed silvery undulated dagger with a coarsely refined rounded hand guard with jagged spikes protruding at its arch, wood carved finger grip handle and another smaller undulated blade at its hilt. As its name implies, it is not just regulated for wild beasts and monsters, but encounters with one's own kin. It is designed in mind with many daft features; its undulating pattern is said to be made especially to help cut through flesh easier, and its crude but tough hand guard is also possible for use as a knuckle.
