Acheron is an enemy from Final Fantasy III, fought in Forbidden Land Eureka. It is a rather powerful enemy when first fought, but can be dealt with through the use of strong physical classes such as Knight and Monk. It is advised to have at least one character devoted to healing and reviving in case a party member is KOed, but it is otherwise not overly difficult compared to later enemies.
