No... We are the guardians of Terra...

Earth Guardian

Earth Guardian is a boss from Final Fantasy IX. The party first encounters it in the Earth Shrine when delivering a mirror to break the seal to Terra. Earth Guardian is one of the guardians of Terra who guards the seals. Quina and Zidane must fight him.

The party later fights the Earth Guardian in Memoria where he is known as Lich.

Battle[edit | edit source]

Earth Guardian uses Earth Shake that deals Earth damage to the party. There is nothing good to steal unless one wants to steal the Avenger.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

It is recommended to get two pairs of Feather Boots, but not equip the Auto-Float support ability that goes with them. The Feather Boots absorb Earth damage, so one will be healed when the Earth Guardian uses Earth Shake. During battle, it is possible to use Quina's Eat/Cook command to learn Guardian's Earth Shake as Blue Magic. He is the only boss who can be eaten.

If Quina has Mighty Guard, the battle can be won with ease. Another good idea is equip Auto-Regen and Auto-Haste. As the Earth Guardian is a flying monster, Twister can help out greatly. If Quina knows Bad Breath the battle becomes even easier, since Earth Guardian is weak to Darkness, Mini, and Slow. Aqua Breath will inflict above 4000 HP in one use. Night will put it to sleep, but the party needs to be protected against the status as well.

Zidane should do the damage with his physical attacks. His Devil Killer support ability can make the fight easier still.
