Final Fantasy Wiki

The Malboro Menace is a Soul of Rebirth enemy in Final Fantasy II, based on the Malboro species introduced in Final Fantasy X. It is an upgraded version of the Malboro, and its attacks inflict several nasty ailments, including Sleep, Silence, Paralysis, Mini, and Confuse.



"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.
