Timed Quest


Malboro brat is a miniature malboro that appears alongside its elder kin. They are slow, and tend to not attack much and are more of a nuisance and a distraction whereas the big malboro is the main target. They chomp down those they can reach with their mouths and may all focus on the same target, crowding them. They are weak to greatswords, machinery, ice and fire, and resist lightning and light.


The player should focus on the main malboro rather than on the brats. During the Dreadful Legend quest, throwing ice elemancy at the water where the malboros appear freezes them in place, making them helpless until the water thaws. The player needs to be careful to not be touching the water themselves when casting it, however, or they will be frozen in place as well.

If fighting them with melee attacks, it is best not to get in the middle of numerous malboros attacking at once, and create some distance if they begin to group together.


"Malboro" may derive from the Japanese onomatopoeia boro, the sound of an upset stomach. The word mal, means something bad or illness. The name could also be a reference to Marlboro Cigarettes, since the creatures often spew horrid fumes.
