The Flan Princess, also known as the PinkPuff, is an enemy from Final Fantasy IV. It has a 1/64 chance of appearing in a room in the Lunar Subterrane and Lunar Ruins. When it drops an item, there's a 1/64 chance of it being the rare item, Pink Tail, which can be traded with the Blacksmith in the underground for the Adamant Armor.

How to find[edit | edit source]

Flan Princesses is found in one room of the Lunar Subterrane (the room has a single chest containing a Red Fang). In the Advance and Complete Collection ports, a group of eight Flan Princesses (rather than the usual five in Lunar Subterrane) can be found in the Flan room of the Lunar Ruins. Sirens can be used to trigger the Subterrane formation, but sadly not the higher count group in the Ruins. They are harder to find, but have better odds of a tail drop by sheer numbers.

In the Flan room in the Lunar Ruins, after the first rare encounter of the eight Flan Princesses, they start to appear after every five or six random encounters. After five to seven of these encounters with the Flan Princesses, they will stop appearing. The player can quicksave, then reload the game to start it again. The player will have to spend time finding the rare encounter again, but they will start to appear commonly again after that. This makes acquiring the Pink Tail easier.

Battle[edit | edit source]

As soon as the fight begins, a Flan Princess will say "Dance with us!" and cast a party-wide Berserk spell called Samba de Flan. Occasionally, a Flan Princess will cast a spell called Entice to inflict the Confuse effect.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

In most versions, one should not have much trouble taking Flan Princesses down with high levels, good equipment, and magic/summons. Equipping the Crystal Mail will render Cecil immune to being inflicted with the Berserk status. In the GBA and PSP versions, the White Dress and Ribbon can also resist the Berserk status.

Hanjuku Hero - Final Jelly.png

Final Jelly (ファイナルゼリ-, Fainaru Zerī?) appears as an Egg Monster in the Japan-exclusive Hanjuku Hero: Aa, Sekaiyo Hanjukunare...!. The sprite is a modified version of the Flan type of monsters from Final Fantasy IV.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Flan is an open pastry or sponge cake containing a sweet or savory filling. A typical flan of this sort is round, with shortcrust pastry, usually coated with sweet syrup. It is similar to a custard tart or a South African melktert.

Puff pastry, also known as pâte feuilletée, is a flaky light pastry made from a laminated dough composed of dough (détrempe) and butter or other solid fat (beurrage). The butter is put inside the dough (or vice versa), making a paton which is repeatedly folded and rolled out before baking.
