Often appears in groups. Uses Dischord to halve opponents' level.

Final Fantasy VI PlayStation Bestiary entry

The Metal Hitman is an enemy in Final Fantasy VI.

Stats Edit

Battle Edit

Metal Hitmen are simple enemies; each turn they may use a normal attack, their special attack Destroy, or Dischord.


Exploiting their elemental weaknesses with either Thundaga or Flood (in the Advance and subsequent releases) defeats them quickly, since they attack in groups.

Coliseum setup Edit

Metal Hitman is not much of a threat, but it is advised that the player equips the Safety Bit/Memento Ring, which will protect against Dischord; the spell can have devastating effects offensively for the player, especially if the battle drags out.
