Final Fantasy VI PlayStation Bestiary entry

The Metal Hitman is an enemy in Final Fantasy VI.

Stats[edit | edit source]

Battle[edit | edit source]

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

Strategy[edit | edit source]

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 | edit source]

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.
