The Abductor is a boss in Final Fantasy V first encountered when the party arrives at Galuf's World. He snatches Lenna and Faris, and the player has to fight using only Bartz. If Bartz loses, he is kidnapped; if he wins, Abductor will drop a chest; when opened, Bartz is knocked out by sleeping gas, and the trio is taken to Castle Exdeath. This is one of the few boss battles the player is not required to win. The player next meets Abductor at the Castle of Bal, and it also appears later on as a regular enemy on the higher level floors of Castle Exdeath.
Stats[edit | edit source]
Strategy[edit | edit source]
The player should change Bartz into a Dragoon and use the Jump command. As Abductor has low HP compared to other bosses, it should fall after two hits. Another option is to use the Blue Magic spells Death Claw or 1000 Needles. The player gets an Ether for winning the battle.
Other appearances[edit | edit source]
The Abductor is a formidable foe that uses Hurricane to hit a target for heavy damage based on their HP, kupo! He doesn't have any weaknesses, so make sure you have characters that can heal, and use abilities like Armor Break to soften him up.
Dr. Mog's Advice
The Abductor appears as the boss of the "Castle of Bal" Core Dungeon. Unlike most bosses, it is fought in the first stage of the Dungeon. It can use Attack and Critical to deal physical damage to one target, Hurricane to damage one target dependent on its HP, and Bloodfeast to damage a target and heal itself. The Abductor has no elemental weaknesses but nullifies Earth, so beating it is a straightforward brawl.
