Glasya Labolas (グラシャラボラス, Gurasharaborasu?, lit. Glasya-Labolas) is a recurring giant enemy in the Final Fantasy series introduced in Final Fantasy III. It typically has high physical damage and high HP.
Appearances[edit | edit source]
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.
Glasya Labolas is fought in Mt. Zozo and is a possible enemy in Dragon's Neck Coliseum. It is presumably related to Hill Gigas, which is from Zozo. It can deal a very powerful Uppercut physical attack. Players can defeat Glasya Labolas using Bio, to exploit its weakness to Poison. It possesses a Muscle Belt which can be stolen. 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.
Glasya Labolas is fought in 24-man raid Syrcus Tower as the second boss, a homage to its Final Fantasy III appearance. It fights with its fists, and there are many stages to the fight. Throughout these stages, several players will attack Glasya Labolas, though others will need to deal with several enemies spawned in order to align them with the machines that can reduce his charged up damage.
Glasya Labolas is based on its Final Fantasy VI appearance.
