The Mastiff is an Imperial Army/Imperial-type enemy in Final Fantasy XII. They are located in every Archadian structure. They are dogs under the control of Imperial Soldiers.

There are three different models for the mastiff, one for every location it is found in: in the Dreadnought Leviathan, they wear brown armor; in Draklor Laboratory, they wear grey armor; in the Sky Fortress Bahamut, they look more like wolves (with a shorter tail) and wear green armor.

Bestiary entry Edit

Note: All "Imperial" soldiers share one bestiary entry.

Being the rank and file of the Archadian Imperial Army. The greater part of the Imperial army is comprised of swordsmen. In addition are hoplites in heavy armor for charging enemy fortifications, mages for ranged support, and others still for various more specialized roles.

Page 2: Mastiff Edit

Dogs specially trained for battle. Their ability to follow commands and unswerving loyalty make them a vital part of the Imperial war machine. Training takes place at the hands of skilled "beast tamers", with a mastiff usually requiring two to three years before it is ready to see combat.

Battle Edit

Like most Imperial enemies, Mastiffs are not overly difficult to kill. They are only particularly noteworthy, however, in that they do not count as Imperials for terms of battle chains, so if the player is fighting Imperials, killing a Mastiff will break their battle chain.
