Glasya Labolas (グラシャラボラス, Gurasharaborasu?, lit. Glasya-Labolas), alternatively localised as Doomtrain is a recurring creature in the Final Fantasy series first introduced in Final Fantasy III.

The creature appears as either a giant or a demonic train, depending on the game. Despite these drastically different appearances, it consistently shares the name Glasya Labolas in the Japanese script in all of its appearances and oftentimes in the English localization as well.

Glasya Labolas has appeared alteratively as an enemy, a summon, a boss and a plot element, with its signature attack as a summon being Runaway Train.

Appearances[]

The Glasya Labolas appears only in versions that have the Soul of Rebirth dungeons, and is fought in the Unknown Cave. With high HP and attack, it is fought like other Gigas enemies. However, unlike the other Gigas, Glasya Labolas has no elemental weakness to exploit. At the time it is fought with only Minwu and Scott, victory is nigh impossible.

When fought in the Coliseum, high defense and evasion are advised, or the Mirage Vest which guarantees Image, to avoid its physical damage, while Man Eater is advised to defeat it.

Final Fantasy Brave Exvius[]

The Doomtrain appears in the game as a major plot device in season three. It is an Esper summoned by Bruce in combat, but was turned onto the Farplane Express train through the use of Pilocyte, allowing the protagonists to ride it in order to travel the Farplane to combat The Hollow. It is most of the time piloted by Rinora who serves as its conductor.

The 7★ Unit Bruce has the ability "Doomtrain Summon" (グラシャラボラス召喚, Gurasharaborasu Shōkan?, lit. Summon Glasya-Labolas) which uses the Evocation Gauge that has a 75% chance of inflicting death, 80% chance of inflicting all status effects and deals physical damage to all enemies for 3 turns, as well as increasing the unit's Limit Burst gauge.

It is an unique Esper in the sense that it cannot be acquired by the player like the rest of the Espers, and therefore it cannot be either leveled, customized, equipped or Summoned in typical fashion. It can only be used offensively through Bruce's aforementioned ability.
