FFTA BigMalboro Portrait

Powerful malboro that smells even worse.


Big Malboros in Final Fantasy Tactics Advance are lavender versions of the notorious Malboro. In addition to their repugnant odor, they utilize horrible sounds to inflict negative status effects and remove positive ones. Their HP level is the highest of any other monster genus, but other than that, they are not much more difficult than their green-skinned cousins.

"Malboro" may derive from the Japanese onomatopoeia boro, the sound of an upset stomach. The word mal, means something bad or illness. The name could also be a reference to Marlboro Cigarettes, since the creatures often spew horrid fumes.
