Dummy esper is an unnamed dummied enemy in Final Fantasy VI that seems to have been meant to be another esper for Kefka to battle in Thamasa. It uses the Guard sprite probably because it is the first sprite in the list and the sprite wasn't changed. The enemy's stats and AI script are simple and freeze the battle soon after launch.
The battle seems to have been designed to be launched during the same time period as the unnamed esper fight (with Kefka using the same stats and equipment). Active party is hidden and Kefka is placed in the middle of the screen. The enemy uses its first strike ability to attack Kefka once, after which the game freezes since Kefka doesn't have battle commands or AI script to continue the fight.
