Final Fantasy VI PlayStation Bestiary entry

The Death Machine is an enemy in Final Fantasy VI which appears in Kefka's Tower and the Dragon's Neck Coliseum.

Stats[edit | edit source]

Battle[edit | edit source]

It is a very dangerous enemy, and uses various Death attacks, such as the Death spell, Blaster, and Lv. 5 Death, which it casts at the beginning of every battle. Their special attack Mind Stop inflicts Stop, and when followed by Blaster, it's guaranteed to KO the afflicted party member. Like most machines, it is weak to Lightning and Water, so Thundaga and Flood spells are most effective against it.

Coliseum setup[edit | edit source]

The Death Machine can be fought in Dragon's Neck Coliseum by betting a Regal Gown. Their Death attacks can instantly end the battle, but an easy way to win is to equip the character with a Reflect Ring; with it simple battle script, the Death Machine will likely destroy itself as soon as the first turn. If that does not work, the player can equip a Safety Bit, which prevents Petrification, Zombie, and Instant Death.
