First Encounter Edit

I'll save a briny pit for you in hell!
—Cagnazzo, The Drowned King

In the first fight, Cagnazzo's water shield can be destroyed by casting spells he is weak against. Tellah can cast Thundaga and Palom can cast Thundara for massive damage, as Cagnazzo is weak to Lightning. However, if too much damage is inflicted, he will withdraw into his shell and will begin to heal himself, use the best attacks available to finish him quickly. Cecil should keep a Zeus's Wrath in case Cagnazzo starts to use Tsunami.

Etymology Edit

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."
