The Whale Zombie is a flying, undead enemy from Final Fantasy IX. The party can find it on the beaches of the Outer Continent, Lost Continent, and Forgotten Continent on discs 3 and 4, and the beaches of the Mist Continent on disc 4.


Battle Edit

Whale Zombies are great sources of EXP once the player can access Lost Continent and Outer Continent beaches with the Blue Narciss. The player should beware of the dangerous Zombie Powder and Venom Breath attacks, which inflict debilitating status effects. If its Zombie Powder attack causes someone to become a Zombie, a Magic Tag can be stolen from it.

Whale Zombie is a good enemy to eat with Quina to teach him/her Lv5 Death, which is useful for leveling up later in the game against Grand Dragons.

Strategy Edit

A physical character with either the Undead Killer or Bird Killer ability can make short work of this cetacean. Also, as the Whale Zombie is undead, casting Life or Full-Life on it will defeat it instantly. The Whale Zombie can be reduced to 1 HP with a Phoenix Down, easily putting it in range to be eaten by Quina.
