Final Fantasy VI PlayStation Bestiary entry

The Tumbleweed is an enemy in Final Fantasy VI.


They always attack in groups of four, and have a chance to counter any attack with Lifeshaver, which deals Earth-elemental damage and absorbs HP. They are vulnerable to Fire, so Firaga and Fira spells are the best way to defeat them quickly. They have the rare Imp equipment piece Saucer to be stolen.

Tumbleweed's Blinder can be disregarded in the versions prior to the Gameboy Advance, due to a bug in those games. In the GBA remake, simply use the Silver Spectacles/Ribbon to prevent it. The player should also equip Gaia Gear to reverse Lifeshaver's drain effect.

A tumbleweed is the above-ground part of any of a number of plants that, once mature and dry, disengage from the root and tumble away in the wind. This is an adaptation that allows the plant to spread its seeds across the landscape.
