Its Bad Breath inflicts multiple status effects on all characters. Guard against the status effects with armor, and attack with fire. Kimahri can learn Bad Breath.
The Malboro of Final Fantasy X is a fiend encountered more easily in the northwest of the grassland area in the Calm Lands, and occasionally in the rooms (not hallways) in the Cavern of the Stolen Fayth. It is a large plant that overwhelms the party with status ailments.
Stats[edit | edit source]
Battle[edit | edit source]
Malboro is one of the tougher monsters of the Calm Lands due to its Bad Breath ability, which inflicts several status effects on the active party: Silence (100% chance and by 3 turns), Darkness (100% chance and by 3 turns), Slow (30% chance and by 3 turns), Poison (150% chance), Confusion (80% chance), and Berserk (30% chance). Bad Breath will be executed when its counter reaches 7; the counter increases by 1 when targeted, or 2 when targeted with a fire-elemental attack. Malboro will not use Bad Breath against aeons or when Provoked. Kimahri can learn Bad Breath as a Ronso Rage.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
As aeons are immune to status ailments, the player can summon them against the Malboro. Ifrit can be a good choice as Malboros are weak to Fire.
