The Apocrypha, also called Apokryphos or Apokrypos, is an enemy in Final Fantasy VI. It is encountered on the Floating Continent.

Stats[edit | edit source]

Battle[edit | edit source]

The Apocrypha is not a major threat unless it is the only enemy on the battlefield. If it is, it counters most attacks by casting Lv 3 Confuse, Lv 4 Flare, or Lv 5 Death on the attacker, which is dangerous if the attacker is at a level susceptible to these. Locke can steal Angel Rings from them.

A good strategy is to either kill the Apokryphos first, or to use Rasp to drain its MP, as it dies when it reaches 0. Instant Death attacks also work well, so Shadow should use the Assassin's Dagger.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Apocrypha comes from Ancient Greek ἀπόκρυφος (apókruphos) meaning "hidden" or "obscure". As a term, it refers chiefly to literary work that was intended to exist as part of a larger work, but was obscured or otherwise rejected from said body of work. In the Christian tradition, for instance, there are believed to exist several books and letters that were not canonized in the Bible. These hidden texts are known as the Apocrypha or Deuterocanonica.
