Please expand this article into a full one. This can be done by adding information regarding whether kills in Ultimecia Castle count for kills toward Tonberry King and whether the Tonberry King can appear within Ultimecia Castle. This request can be discussed on the associated discussion page.

The Tonberry is an enemy in Final Fantasy VIII encountered in the Centra Ruins and in Ultimecia Castle. After defeating approximately 18-24 Tonberries (random, determined on each new game), a battle against the Tonberry King initiates. Defeating the King will grant the player the Tonberry GF.

The player can leave the ruins and the count will not revert to zero.

StatsEdit

BattleEdit

Tonberries will counter most attacks with Everyone's Grudge, an attack which deals HP damage calculated by the number of enemies the character has killed multiplied by 20. When it walks forward at least five times, the Tonberry will randomly attack a party member with its knife or it might fall over, losing a turn.

StrategyEdit

As the Tonberry's HP and defense are formidable, one may consider using Demi or the summon Diablos, as it is not immune to the Gravity element. Also, Doomtrain or Meltdown can cast Vit 0 on the Tonberry to knock down its defense and make it easier to defeat. Other defense ignoring attacks include Quistis's Micro Missiles and Irvine's Shot using AP Ammo.

Mugging Chef's Knives is a quick and easy way to obtain 100 Deaths for every character as one refines into 30 Deaths with Siren's L-Mag refine. The Deaths can be junctioned to stats or to status attack which will result in instant death for the majority of non-boss enemies, and even for Propagators.
