A high-tech Magitek killing machine. Attacks with a variety of methods.
Final Fantasy VI PlayStation Bestiary entry
The Io is an enemy in Final Fantasy VI. Io makes a useful Rage for Gau, as it can cast Flare Star, which increases in power as the target's level increases. This makes Flare Star very powerful against bosses that do not absorb Fire. Flare Star's damage is also unaffected by how high (or low) the user's stats are, making the Io useful for players attempting a low-level run.
Stats[edit | edit source]
Battle[edit | edit source]
It attacks with spells such as Diffractive Laser and Wave Cannon, and its special attack Crush, a stronger physical blow. Since the team is wearing Magitek Armor, the best strategy is to use Thunder Beam with all characters, while Terra if available should use Magitek Missile.
