The Commander is an enemy in Final Fantasy VI.

Stats Edit

Battle Edit

They are not terribly powerful, but attack in groups and can be a nuisance, since the player is only in command of Celes and Locke. Their special attack, Desperate Strike, sometimes lets them attack twice a turn.


An efficient way to kill them is to have Celes group-cast Blizzard on them, weakening them enough for follow-up normal attacks to defeat them. Alternatively, the player can equip Locke with a Gauntlet or Genji Glove, boosting his damage output enough to defeat them in one hit without the need for Celes's magic.
