VI

I lose AGAIN! Well, today I've brought a pal! Mr. Chupon, come on down! Mr. Chupon's taciturn, but terribly powerful! Better not irritate him! He gets hungry when he's irritated... I was drowsing the other day when Mr. Chupon gnawed on my head! He needed something to polish his teeth on!
—Ultros
Typhon-field-ffvi-ios

Typhon, also known as Chupon, is a boss in Final Fantasy VI. He is a friend of Ultros, and he has a constant cold. Typhon is first encountered on the Blackjack when the party is attempting to attack the Floating Continent. Being a taciturn antagonist, he only speaks in growls (FUNGAH!!!), and he winds up sneezing the party off the ship. He later appears in the Coliseum where he is the monster fought when a common item is bet. An Elixir is always won in this battle, but it can be difficult to win because he often uses Snort as soon as he gets a turn.

The game data includes another attack for Typhon when fought at the Coliseum: Imp Goo, meant to inflict the target with Poison. However, he never uses the attack, opting only to using Snort, rendering Imp Goo a dummied feature. In the same vein, a rage of Typhon's Colosseum appearance exists in the game coding, but as Typhon never appears on the Veldt, Gau can never learn it.

Battle Edit

Appears at Ultros's call. Unlike Ultros, it's weakness is cold, so use Ice 2. At the battle's end he uses Sneeze, and the scene shifts to the battle vs. Air Force.
—PlayStation Bestiary entry

Typhon is summoned into battle by Ultros about halfway through. He absorbs fire; however, he is weak to Ice and Water. Therefore, Blizzara spells and Edgar or Mog equipped with a Trident and Dragoon Boots works well. He is also susceptible to Silence. It should be a pretty easy battle; upon winning, Typhon uses Snort upon its death to blow the entire party off the airship.

Coliseum setup Edit

Bet Memento Ring for Memento Ring
Bet "not good enough item" for Elixir

Typhon provides an infinite supply of Elixirs by betting an item that is not considered worthy/cheap/weak, if the player is able to kill him before he uses Snort. The best set-up is to equip a character with a Master's Scroll, Genji Glove, and two Ultima Swords. Having high Speed is essential, so level the character up with the Cactuar esper. With a high enough Speed, the character will defeat Typhon before he gets his first turn, and as with any other Coliseum battle, the player loses their wager and wins an Elixir. Continually betting low-cost items like Potions and Antidotes allows a cheap and fairly fast and easy way to collect multiple Elixirs.
