The Zalamander is a boss in Final Fantasy X-2. Defeating it in the Final Fantasy X-2 HD Remaster version earns the trophy Dousing the Fire.

Stats Edit



Fiend Arena

Fiend Arena Oversoul

Battle Edit

Its tail attacks deal damage within an arc, so it's possible for some of the girls to avoid them if they're spread out. It breathes fire that hits all targets in a range. Zalamander is immune to magic.

Strategy Edit

It is recommended to bring along Light Curtains or have the ability to cast Protect to reduce the damage it can do with its strong physical attacks, and also be able to absorb or nullify Fire-elemental attacks. The Heart of Flame garment grid is particularly good for this, giving the party Fire Eater.

Despite Zalamander being immune to magic elemental items can harm it, so Fire Gems, Fish Scales, and Electro Marbles can chip away at its HP. The player can equip the Dark Knight dressphere on all the girls to deal maximum physical damage with attacks.

Creature Creator Edit

Trivia Edit
