The Armstrong is an enemy from Final Fantasy IX. It can be found on the Forgotten Continent in the Blairsurpass Plains and Seaways Canyon.

It is a house with spider-like legs, somewhat resembling the enemy Hell House from Final Fantasy VII. The "secrets" section of Final Fantasy IX Ultimania explains that the legs are cat's legs and that there are four cats holding the Armstrong up. Armstrong has a cat motif on the weather vane on its roof and a shield on its left side.

StatsEdit

BattleEdit

Armstrong counters with Cannon, which cuts HP in half. It can use Matra Magic, which reduces a character's HP to one.

StrategyEdit

It is recommended to use attacks such as Iai Strike, Mustard Bomb, or Freeze to not have to deal with counters, or to use skills that will deal enough damage to kill it in one shot.
