Stats[edit | edit source]

Battle[edit | edit source]

Hades is the strongest random enemy giving the greatest experience reward. It uses Almagest (with a Magic stat surpassing Enuo's), which can inflict over 5,000 damage if the player is not prepared. Hades also uses the instant death physical Reaper's Sword, and Flare. Hades is weak against Holy.

Hades will sometimes drop additional Bone Mails, while Cursed Rings may be stolen from it. If the party's Necromancer defeats Hades, they learn the powerful Doomsday spell.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

To mitigate some of the damage, it is wise to cast Carbuncle, so Flare will reflect back at Hades. Repeated castings of Holy will take advantage of the foe's elemental weakness.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Hades is the Greek god of the Underworld, as well as the name of the Underworld itself. Despite many modern portrayals, in Ancient Greek mythology, Hades was not represented as evil. Later Christians used the name as being synonymous with the Devil, which seems to be the inspiration for the forms that the monsters with this name take.
