Tonberry King is an optional boss in Final Fantasy VIII. He is encountered by defeating a high number of Tonberry enemies in the Centra Ruins. After enough Tonberry enemies have been defeated, the Tonberry King appears to avenge their souls. Upon the Tonberry King's defeat, the player is granted the junction-able Guardian Force, Tonberry.
How to FindEdit
The number of Tonberry enemies the player needs to defeat in order to engage the Tonberry King changes with the beginning of each new file, however, it is usually about eighteen to twenty-four. Should the player run from the Tonberry King, they will have to fight the prerequisite number of Tonberry enemies again to make him reappear. If the player successfully uses the Card ability on a Tonberry, it does not count as defeating it.
Contrary to popular belief, the player may leave the area and save the game while in the process of killing the required number of Tonberry enemies. Killing them consecutively is not required.
"It's Sharp!" is a single target attack using the equation of a target's enemy kills multiplied by 30. "Junk" is a counterattack made after every fifth attack the party deals against Tonberry King that sends items falling down on the party for a random amount of damage. The items are pot, a kettle, a bottle of wine, cups, soccer ball, and even a television. On top of these, Tonberry King also uses a regular physical attack.
