Doesn't look like a very friendly creature.

The Propagator is a boss in Final Fantasy VIII. They come in four colors on the Ragnarok: purple, red, green, and gold, and must be defeated in pairs, otherwise they will respawn. Continually challenging the Propagators randomly will, after twenty-five kills, cause all Propagators onboard Ragnarok to cease respawning.






Battle Edit

The Propagator likes to use Silence and Blind, but these work well against them too. Propagators are one of the only bosses in the game that the Guardian Force Odin can kill with Zantetsuken.

Strategy Edit

The easiest way to defeat them is to junction 100 Deaths in Status Attack, to kill them in one hit.

Gallery Edit


The enemy's name makes a pun of the word "propagator" with "[alli]gator", hence the shape of their teeth-rimmed mouths. To propagate is to breed, spread, and/or multiply, referencing how propagators spread across the ship and how they quickly return if not defeated in the correct order.
