Let us end this ceremony with a sacrifice.

Edea Kramer

Iguions are a pair of bosses in Final Fantasy VIII. After Sorceress Edea gives Galbadia her introductory speech, she brings to life two Iguion statues to kill Rinoa Heartilly. Squall Leonhart and Irvine Kinneas head out to save her.

Stats[edit | edit source]

Battle[edit | edit source]

The Iguions begin the battle with Reflect due to Carbuncle's influence. Resonance is a magic attack used only when the two Iguions are present. Magma Breath is a Fire-elemental attack that can petrify a target. Iguions are immune to the Fire element. They are weak to Earth.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The player should draw Carbuncle from the Iguions as soon as possible, thus taking their Reflect away and gaining a new GF. Afterward the Iguions are easy to defeat with GFs, as long as the player doesn't summon Ifrit. Brothers is a good choice of summon because they deal Earth damage, which the Iguions are weak against. It may be better to concentrate on one Iguion at the time, and use Limit Breaks when they become available.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

The enemy appears similar to descriptions to the mušḫuššu from Sumerian mythology, mixing scales and lion-like traits. Its Japanese name may derive from "Sumer". It may alternatively derive from the German word schmelzen (to melt, fuse).

Iguion derives from "iguana" and "lion". Iguana is a genus of herbivorous lizards native to tropical areas of Mexico, Central America, several islands in Polynesia and the Caribbean. Two species are included: the green iguana widespread throughout its range and a popular pet, and the Lesser Antillean iguana native to the Lesser Antilles and endangered due to habitat destruction. The word "iguana" is derived from the original Taino name for the species, iwana.
