Mega Death (オーバーデスŌbā Desu, Overdeath?) is a recurring ability in the Final Fantasy series. It is an ability used exclusively by Yunalesca, being a more powerful version of the Death spell, used against the party with a 100% accuracy.
Appearances[edit | edit source]
Mega Death appears as an enemy ability in the raid dungeon Weeping City of Mhach. Used by Forgall, Mega Death inflicts Instant Death raid-wide to all members of the expedition. To avoid Instant Death, a character must be under the effect of Gradual Petrification, obtained by getting hit (intentionally) by one green floating bubble summoned by Evil Mist. Gradual Petrification is harmless to the player until two or more stacks are applied, at which point the player turns completely zombified and begin attacking other players. It is thus in the player's interest to discern the radii of the various bubbles and try to get hit by one but no more when they simultaneously explode.
