The Flan Princesses are five bosses in the Advance and mobile/Steam versions of Final Fantasy VI. They are based on the hard-to-come-by monsters of the same name in a room in Final Fantasy IV.

Stats[]

Battle[]

The Flan Princesses use Imp and Berserk on the party, forcing them to use only physical attacks, which do little damage to Flan-type monsters.

After all five are defeated, the party receives the Oborozuki, Shadow's ultimate weapon.

Strategy[]

Equipping relics like the Ribbon, the party can avoid the status ailments. Spells that hit all targets are effective, such as Grand Delta and Ultima. An alternate strategy is to equip the party with the imp equipment. The spell Banish also works.

Etymology[]

The English word "flan" comes from the Old French flaon (modern French flan), in turn from the early Medieval Latin fladō, of Germanic origin, from an Indo-European root meaning "flat" or "broad".

The word Flan refers to 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.
