Attacks with lightning-elemental attacks. If it has both arms, it can deliver a Delta Hit.

Final Fantasy VI PlayStation Bestiary entry


The Inferno is a boss in Final Fantasy VI. It is accompanied by its two arms, the Ketu and the Rahu. It is similar to Number 128 in both appearance and in that its arms can be revived.

Stats[edit | edit source]

Battle[edit | edit source]

When the boss and both of its arms are alive together, they cast Delta Attack, which petrifies a target and cannot miss, barring immunity. On its own Inferno uses Thundaga, Gigavolt, Atomic Rays, and Shockwave. It counters with its special attack, Sobat, doing heavy physical damage. When alone Inferno will use Magitek Barrier to give itself Protect and Reflect.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Inferno is weak to Lightning, so the party's own Thundaga spells work well against it. The player can equip Reflect Rings to bounce the Inferno's Thundaga spells back at it, but are advised to have Strago or Mog in the party to bypass Reflect and heal the party with Dance or Lore, as Inferno's other attacks can be dangerous. Inferno is immune to Invisible, so the quick-kill Vanish-Death combo does not work. Spells like Grand Delta or Ultima can deal massive damage and can destroy both its arms.
