The Rogue Tomato is a Mark in Final Fantasy XII. It is the first Mark and the only one required to advance the story. It is found in the Dalmasca Estersand and is easily defeated.

If for whatever reason the player needs to return to Rabanastre before killing the Rogue Tomato, they can stand in a line at the gate by talking to the Queue Watch and wait until the line clears.

Bestiary entryEdit

A vexing Representative of the Deadly Nightshade Family has been sighted nearby Rabanastre! Thankfully, it is apparently a Rogue, outcast from its Kin, a Stranger in a strange Land, no longer possessed of those deadly Powers it once wielded with Impunity.
In its Loneliness, it has taken to attacking Travelers and Merchants, and so did Tomaj, an Associate of Vaan, post a Bill for this Mark.

FF12 Map - Dalmasca Estersand
Map of Rogue Tomato's approximate spawn point.

As the first hunt this battle is fairly easy, though its Flame Breath can cause high damage. After halving its HP, the Rogue Tomato will leap from the precipice location and the player must finish him off in the lower ground. When it flees from the plateau, it counts as though Vaan killed it. This will break the player's battle chain (if they have one) and will allow one to chain the Rogue Tomato with itself if they approach it without killing other enemies. This also allows the player to steal from the Rogue Tomato twice.


It is best to avoid the nearby Wolves, as they are still strong compared to Vaan.


The player will also receive a handful of Galbana Lilies after a short cutscene following the end of the battle, but will lose them after they are trampled on by an Imperial chocobo participating in the Consul's parade.
