Bestiary entry Edit

Being a mutant Form of Malboro, one of the few remaining in the Feywood, distinguished by its foul Breath which is several Times more rank than that of the typical Malboro. Generally regarded as a Threat to the delicate Balance of Life in the Wood, the Viera have watched it with great Disapproval. Viera Warriors have attempted its Extermination several Times, but were foiled by their own acute Sense of Smell (a considerable Disadvantage in such a Fight), and so a Bill was posted.

Battle Edit

Wild Malboro is flanked with a few Malboros, and both monsters will inflict a plethora of status ailments. When the Wild Malboro's HP hits HP Critical, his Defense will increase, as well as his rate of inflicting status ailments on the party. When his HP is critical, Wild Malboro may use Soul Etude to fully replenish his HP. It can also set up a physical paling.


One can use Faith-boosted Aeroga (or two to be sure) to wipe the Malboros out. The player should bring a healthy stock of Remedies and have all its Lores. Equipping long-ranged weapons to bash Wild Malboro from afar might be a good idea; Fomalhaut with Windslicer Shots is useful. Casting Decoy on the party's tank and positioning him/her so Wild Malboro is not facing the other party members can limit the number of party members affected by Putrid Breath and other attacks, making the battle more manageable. One might want to bring Hi-Ethers or Elixirs to replenish MP.

Etymology Edit

"Malboro" may derive from the Japanese onomatopoeia boro, the sound of an upset stomach. Their name is most likely derived from the Latin and Greek words mal (meaning bad) and boros (meaning breath), a reference to their infamous attack. The name could also be a reference to Marlboro Cigarettes, since the creatures often spew horrid fumes.
