You're just in time, my little playmates... I get so lonely here... Won't you keep me company?


Cagnazzo is a boss appearing for the first time in the Dawn of Souls version of the original Final Fantasy. The party finds him on the fifth floor of the Hellfire Chasm, and must defeat either him or Scarmiglione to continue through the dungeon. His sprite is similar to that of his incarnation in Final Fantasy IV.

Battle[edit | edit source]

Cagnazzo DoS.png

Cagnazzo is heavily damaged by Thundaga. He uses his special attack, Tsunami, nearly every turn, which deals about 200 in Water damage to the entire party. He may also cast Haste on himself to boost his physical attacks, and may even cast Curaga on himself, although it will only heal him for a few hundred HP.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The party's Black Wizard should cast Thundaga after the physical attackers have had Haste and Temper cast on them. The party's White Wizard should cast Healaga after every Tsunami.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Cagnazzo 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 "Nasty Dog."
