Barbariccia is a boss from Final Fantasy IV: The After Years.

Stats[edit | edit source]

Battle[edit | edit source]

Stone Touch (Wii).

Barbariccia will counter any attacks while she is protected by her tornado. The only way to cancel it is with Kain's Jump ability. Fighting her without the assistance of it will be difficult. She uses Maelstrom, which reduces the party's HP to single digits. When Barbariccia is weakened, she will cast Tornado on herself and can then be finished with one more hit.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Kain should be ready to use his Jump. It is best to have either Porom or Rosa ready with Curaga when Barbariccia uses Maelstrom.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Barbariccia is a demon in the Inferno of Dante's Divine Comedy. He is one of the 13 Malebranche ("Evil Claws") who guard Bolgia Five of the eighth circle of Hell, Malebolge. Vulgar and quarrelsome, their duty is to force the corrupt politicians to stay under the surface of a boiling lake of pitch.

His name means "Curly Beard."
