Final Fantasy Wiki

The Final Fantasy VI Advance Official Complete Guide is a Japanese strategy guide for Final Fantasy VI Advance. It was published on December 28, 2006 under the SE-Mook imprint. It was made available as a Kindle e-book on April 1, 2018.

The guide avoids showing the sprites of final Kefka and Kaiser Dragon, showing only the outline and filling it with dark clouds.
