For the Final Fantasy XII enemy, see Gizamaluk.

Template:FFIX Enemies Gizamaluke is a boss from Final Fantasy IX the party fights in Gizamaluke's Grotto. Master Gizamaluke is apparently being controlled by Zorn and Thorn, as he is normally supposed to be loyal to Burmecia. The player has to get the Holy Bell from Moguta, whom they gave the Kupo Nut earlier, in order to reach Gizamaluke.


Gizamaluke is best fought at level 15, but can be managed at a lower level. The player should have Zidane cast Soul Blade if he has the Ogre equipped, as it will Blind Gizamaluke. Freya should be Jumping or casting Lancer. Vivi should cast Thunder. If Quina is in the party s/he can use the Mighty Guard, which can be learned from the enemies outside Gizamaluke's Grotto. Master Gizamaluke only has one attack that targets all of party members. If possible, the player can use a Tent on Gizamaluke right at the battle's start. There is a chance it will inflict Silence and Blind. There is also a chance it will fully cure him, so it is best used as soon as the battle starts. It is beneficial to wear equipment that decreases Water damage, namely the Glass Armlet. Equipping Zidane and Freya with the Bird Killer ability will help also.

Alternatively, if Quina is in the party, and s/he has 1 HP, the player can cast Limit Glove to easily kill Gizamaluke in one turn.
