Scarmiglione, originally known as Milon in the SNES translation and PlayStation port and Scarmiglion in the J2e fan translation, is a storyline boss from Final Fantasy IV. A vile monster known as the Blighted Despot, he appears as one of Golbez's Archfiends. He is fought three times (twice in a row early in the story), and takes on more than one form. He is an undead enemy, and thus is weak to Fire and healing spells. In the second battle, he is known as Milon Z or Milon Z. in older ports.
One should have plenty of Echo Herbs on hand to cure Silence. Tellah and Porom should always use Cura on Scarmiglione or the other characters when they need healing. Palom should cast Fira without any delay, but Scarmiglione will retaliate with his various status effects, or his special Gas attack in all versions except the US SNES FF2 release and Easy Type. Cecil should use Hi-Potion on Scarmiglione as his dark sword is useless against the boss. If the player wants an easy win, they can use an Elixir on Scarmiglione, if they have it.
As the battle is a back attack, it would be wise to invert the party lineup beforehand.
[view·edit·purge]Scarmiglione is a demon in the Inferno of Dante's Divine Comedy. He is one of the 13 Malebranche ("Evil Claws") who guard Bolgia Five of the eighth circle of Hell, Malebolge. Vulgar and quarrelsome, their duty is to force the corrupt politicians to stay under the surface of a boiling lake of pitch.
