The Abyss Worm is a boss in the Advance, Android, iOS and Steam versions of Final Fantasy VI. Fought in the Dragons' Den, it is meant to resemble the stronger species introduced in Final Fantasy II.

Stats[edit | edit source]

Battle[edit | edit source]

The Abyss Worm normally uses a standard attack, Acid, a special attack that inflicts Sap, Landslide, and 50 Gs followed by Magnitude 8; due to its low Magic Power, many of these attacks do little damage. It counters attacks with Acid, Shockwave, which does low magical damage to a single target, or Gravity Bomb, which acts similar to the Gravity spell.

The Abyss Worm's HP is only marginally higher than the normal enemies in the area, and so it should not be much more difficult to defeat. It is immune to all forms of elemental damage except Holy.

Unlike most bosses in the Dragon's Den, Abyss Worm, Earth Eater, Gargantua, Malboro Menace, Dark Behemoth don't drop any ultimate weapons, and they will respawn every time player enters their area.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Besides the Holy spell, non-elemental spells like Flare and Ultima are most effective.
