Final Fantasy VI PlayStation Bestiary entry
The Hell's Rider (simply abbreviated as Rider in some translations) is a boss in Final Fantasy VI battled during the imperial attack on Narshe. It patrols in front of Kefka. The player can avoid it, but it is difficult. If the player does avoid it, it will still be there running back and forth in the World of Ruin.

Battle[edit | edit source]
Hell's Rider fights alone, a trait he shares with his three palette swap counterparts: Dante, Test Rider, and Death Rider. It uses normal attacks, Venomist that inflicts Poison on the party, and its special attack, Silver Lance, a strong physical blow. It counters attacks with Reverse Polarity, shifting the attacker's row. Locke can steal a valuable Mythril Vest from it, but the Rider will counter with Silver Lance.
