Compared to the other bosses on this floor, Astaroth is fairly easy. If you have a [[party]] member that knows [[Reflect (Ability)|Reflect]], or even better, two, reflect all party members instantly. Astaroth's main threat is her magic, which can easily be reflected back to her. She also has a physical attack which drains your [[HP]] and heals hers, however it's not that strong and shouldn't prove to be a problem. She uses [[Firaga]], [[Blizzaga (Ability)|Blizzaga]], [[Thundaga]], [[Death (Ability)|Death]], [[Flare (Ability)|Flare]] and Embrace, all of which can be reflected. As long as you don't run out of MP and can keep casting Reflect on party members, this fight should be a breeze. While your mages cast Reflect it might also be useful to note that she does not counterattack, so you can attack with your warriors to whittle her HP down faster.

Astaroth is a boss in Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. It is fought on the 9th floor of the Depths of the True Moon.

StatsEdit

Battle Edit

Astaroth's main threat is its magic, but it also has a weak physical attack which drains HP and heals its own. Its magic abilities are Firaga, Blizzaga, Thundaga, Death, Flare and Embrace, all of which can be reflected.

Strategy Edit

Cecil, Rydia, Rosa, Kain, Edge, or Yang, Golbez, Ceodore, Ursula, and Leonora should be around level 50, preferably higher.

Compared to the other bosses on this floor, Astaroth is fairly easy as long as the player has party members who can cast Reflect, or can use items to grant themselves Reflect. With Reflect up Astaroth's primary offense is crippled, leaving the player free to whittle down its HP.

Etymology Edit

Astaroth in demonology is a prince of Hell. In art, specifically in the Dictionnaire Infernal, Astaroth is depicted as a nude man with dragon-like wings, hands, and feet, a second pair of feathered wings after the main, wearing a crown, holding a serpent in one hand, and riding a wolf or dog.
