Neslug (Final Fantasy VI)

19,931 pages on

The Neslug is a boss in the Advance and mobile versions of Final Fantasy VI. It is fought in the Dragons' Den.


The head only uses a physical attack and Tongue Bath, its special attack that inflicts Slow. Because of its maxed out defenses, the shell of the Neslug is impossible to kill, and whenever attacked it uses Megaton Smash to KO a single party member, ignoring the magical Death protection gained from relics like the Safety Bit and Memento Ring. The shell uses White Wind when the head is out to heal it for 9,999 HP.

Upon defeat, the Neslug will drop Mog's ultimate weapon, Gungnir.


Firaga is recommended for direct attacks against the head to hit Neslug's weakness. Casting Vanish on the party will protect them from all of Neslug's attacks except Sticky Goo, allowing them to attack without fear of Megaton Smash.
