Attacks with Meteo, and goes for the throat with Bite.
Final Fantasy VI PlayStation Bestiary entry

The Tyrannosaur is an enemy in Final Fantasy VI. It is notable for being one of the best enemies to level up with, as it leaves high amounts of EXP.

BattleEdit

Tyrannosaurs only attack in two formations: alone and in pairs, the latter of which is always a Pincer Attack that even an Alarm Earring cannot prevent. Being in a Pincer Attack boosts Tyrannosaur's Attack power and makes it even more dangerous. Its special attack, Bite, can inflict several thousand damage and easily kill a party member, and their Meteor spell can inflict upwards of a thousand damage to all party members.

When defeated, it may drop the Impartisan.

StrategyEdit

Blizzara and Blizzaga spells work best against it. An easy way to defeat this enemy is to use the Vanish-Doom bug by casting Vanish, and then follow up with Doom to instantly kill it.

Coliseum setupEdit

Bet Miracle Shoes for Tintinnabulum

Ice Rods are a great choice for exploiting Tyrannosaur's weakness to ice, with its chance of casting Blizzara giving it an advantage over endgame weapons such as Gladius and Holy Lance. Maxing out the character's Defense and/or Evasion should deal with the Tyrannosaur's powerful Bite attack.

TriviaEdit

Bahamut Lagoon - Deboahan

Deboahan in Bahamut Lagoon.

  • The sprite that is shared between Tyrannosaur, Earth Dragon, Weredragon, Chaos Dragon, and Hexadragon was used and modified for some of the Salmando class dragons in Bahamut Lagoon, namely the Deboahan and Aspidredon.
  • The Tyrannosaurus was one of the last dinosaur to live on Earth before the extinction was triggered by a massive comet or asteroid impact 66 million years ago. Ironically, the Tyrannosaur enemy uses the Meteor spell for an attack and as its Rage.
