Barnabas-Z, also known as BalnabZ or Balnab-Z, is a boss in Final Fantasy IV. After being defeated by the party, Barnabas apparently loses his head, which results in Dr. Lugae stepping in to take control of his creation himself. It is possible to miss this boss, if the doctor is defeated first, or quickly after Barnabas.



Easy Type


All the player can do is attack Barnabas-Z at every opportunity. The damage that is caused when it explodes is equal to however much HP it has left, so at best the player will take it out before it detonates, and at worst one will be minimizing however much damage is caused by the explosion.
