FFVII Bad Breath.png

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.
