The Malboro Menace also called Worst Malboro, is an enemy in the Advance and Complete Collection versions of Final Fantasy IV. They are merely an upgraded version of the regular Malboro, and can be dealt with in the same manner. It is advised to have Ribbons equipped to prevent the myriad of status effects they can inflict, and to use strong physical attacks as well as spells such as Flare and Holy. Summoning Bahamut or Leviathan also makes defeating these enemies much easier.

Etymology Edit

"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.
