Hekatontoad is a mark in Final Fantasy XV fought during the To Catch a Frog hunt during rainy weather. The player can camp at the nearest haven until it rains and then head for the spawn spot; this way the player can also level up Ignis's cooking skill. Patch 1.21 implements the ability to fast-forward time, and doing so can also change the weather. This is quicker than repeated camping, and the player keeps their active food buffs.
Bestiary[edit | edit source]
- Aggressive amphibian known for assaulting humans. Although the Hunters once insisted this subspecies of the gigantoad poses little actual threat due to its lethargic nature, only showing signs of activity in heavy rainfall, the organization quickly changed its tune when two of its own went missing while hunting the hekatontoad.
- Size: 23.13 ft. Weight: 29.43 t
- The toad is a highly adaptive organism, boasting a wide array of subspecies that vary according to climate and ecosystem. Some posit the key to unlocking the archaeology of Lucis lies in dissecting the amphibians' origins—and occasionally their organs as well.
- Size: 23.29 ft. Weight: 30.02 t

Battle[edit | edit source]
Hekatontoad is weak to polearms, machinery and Ice. They move slowly and their attacks are easy to read and dodge. They use their long tongue to attack anything that is in front of them with tremendous range.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
When Hekatontoad backs away, the player can get into defensive stance as it lashes with its tongue. The player can dodge-roll to orient themselves to get behind it for blindside attacks, which might also trigger link-strikes. Ice-elemental Elemancy works well against them, and is especially useful for the Timed Quest with them, which tend to get hectic with so many toads lashing out their tongues. The player could also character-swap to Ignis and use his area ice attacks, Overdrive and High Jump.
