Bad Breath is an enemy ability used by the Malboro enemy. It casts Poison, Confuse, Sleep, Silence, Frog, and Small on all party members. An unprepared party may find this difficult to survive. A Malboro will only use it three times in a battle.
Bad Breath can be learned on the Enemy Skill Materia. Malboro can only be fought in two locations: on Gaea's Cliff and inside the Northern Cave. Since the Northern Cave is the final dungeon, if the player does not learn Bad Breath at Gaea's Cliff, it cannot be obtained until the end of the game since Gaea's Cliff is an unrevisitable location. With all its effects, Bad Breath can render most enemies defenseless, but it rarely works on bosses. The MP cost is 58.
Bad Breath is an Enemy Skill Materia learned from the malboro, in the "Three-Person Team vs. Monsters of Legend" battle in the Shinra Combat Simulator. When used from the Enemy Skill materia, it inflicts Poison, Sleep, and Silence on all enemies, though when used by a malboro, it also inflicts Toad.

Malboros usually always use it as their first move, and their version inflicts Poison, Darkness, Silence, Sleep, Slow, Confuse, Berserk, Petrifying, and Curse.

An alternative is to replace Berserk with Break and allow the berserk character to attack the Malboro. With Auto-Haste equipped, Slow won't afflict the character.
