The Salamander, also known as the R.Lizard, is an enemy from Final Fantasy II. As a Fire lizard, it is weak to Ice and absorbs Fire. It has a powerful Attack stat and knows the Blaze XVI move, which deals heavy Fire damage to the entire party. At the point in the game they are fought, however, the player's Spirit stat should be high enough to resist most of the damage done by Blaze XVI, and the player's Attack stat should be high enough to deal with the enemy in one or two attacks, depending if the player is using two weapons or one.
