Dadaluma attacks with ShockWave and uses Potions. If the battle drags on, he'll call allies, so focus your attacks on him first.

PlayStation Bestiary entry

Dadaluma is a boss in Final Fantasy VI. He appears in Zozo, guarding the door to the room leading to Terra and the esper Ramuh. He says the opposite of what he truly means, attacking the party when he promised to let them pass.

Stats[]

Battle[]

Normally Dadaluma only uses normal attacks, his special attack Sweepkick and the weak Shockwave attack. When hit with the Fight command four times, he will counter by throwing either a Mythril Knife or a Dagger at a random party member, twice. If he is hit with magic twice he will counter by throwing either a Mythril Knife or a Dagger before using Jump, which will make him temporarily invulnerable. These counters are powerful and easily kill a party member.

Protect (iOS).

Every 30 seconds, Dadaluma will whistle for two Iron Fists to join him if he is alone, but they should not pose a problem. Once his HP reaches 1,920 or lower, he will either use a Potion or a Hi-Potion three times and cast Protect on himself. If Locke is in the party, they can steal a Thief's Bracer, a rare relic this early in the game.

Strategy[]

Dadaluma's powerful counters can be avoided by using Blitz, Bushido, Tools, and Rage, which do not increase the variable that determines when Dadaluma uses his counters.

If Celes readies her Runic ability at the correct time, she can absorb Dadaluma's attempt at casting Protect, and thus hasten his defeat.

Etymology[]

Dada is a cultural movement that is characterized by deliberate irrationality and a rejection of traditional society. As a street thug living in Zozo, where most of the citizens always lie, Dadaluma embodies both of these concepts perfectly.

Notes[]

  1. Dadaluma uses the same sprite as Vargas, just with a different palette.
