Final Fantasy VI PlayStation Bestiary entry

The Amduscias, otherwise known as the Tap Dancer, is an enemy in Final Fantasy VI.

Stats Edit

Battle Edit

Amduscias always uses Booty Shake on its first turn, which confuses one party member. They are not particularly dangerous on their own, but the Amduscias is always flanked by two Coverts, which will throw items and prevent the party from fleeing.

The Ragnarok summon can rarely turn them into Miracle Shoes, a rare and useful relic.

Strategy Edit

The Amduscias should be saved for last, as the Coverts are more formidable. To defeat the Amduscias, a single Rasp spell with a decent Magic stat can damage all its MP with one casting and kill it instantly, but normal attacks will also work.

Coliseum setup Edit

Amduscias cannot use her counterattack because Throw is disabled within the Coliseum, so the player only has to contend with physical attacks and a few status spells. A Ribbon or Peace Ring will make the wearer immune to Amduscias's Booty Shake.

Etymology Edit

In Goetic demonology, Amdusias is a Grand Duke of Hell. His appearance is said to be that of a man with claws instead of feet and hands, the head of a unicorn, and a trumpet, or either just a unicorn that can change into a man at request. He is associated with thunder, has a boisterous voice. Some sources say he can give concerts when commanded, and although they will be heard, instruments are never seen. He can also make trees bend at will.

Amduscias' older name was Tap Dancer. Tap dance is a form of dance characterized by using the sounds of tap shoes striking the floor as a form of percussion.
