FFV nereid sprite

Nereid, also known as Nergade, is a boss from Final Fantasy V that appears alongside Triton and Phobos when the player attempts to obtain the tablet located in the Great Sea Trench.


Nereid is the Ice-elemental member of the trio. Its attacks are all Ice-elemental, including Frost, Ice Storm, and the spell Blizzaga.

Similar to the Gargoyles, Triton, Nereid, and Phobos must be eliminated simultaneously as failure to do so will cause them to revive and retort with Delta Attack.


The battle can be won easily by using Odin. The Magic Lamp can even be recharged nearby. Otherwise, the three can be easily defeated by repeated use of the Bard's Requiem and multi-target attacks such as summons, though one should only use water, wind, or non-elemental attacks to ensure that all three fall together.

In Greek mythology, the Nereids are sea nymphs (female spirits of sea waters), the fifty daughters of Nereus and Doris, sisters to Nerites. They were distinct from the mermaid-like Sirens. They often accompany Poseidon and can be friendly and helpful to sailors fighting perilous storms.
