The Neslug is a boss in the Advance and subsequent versions of Final Fantasy VI. It is fought in the Dragons' Den.

Stats[edit | edit source]

Head

Shell

Battle[edit | edit source]

The head uses a physical attack and Tongue Bath, its special attack that inflicts Slow. Because of its maxed out defenses, the shell is impossible to kill, and whenever attacked it uses Megaton Smash to KO a party member, ignoring the magical Death protection gained from relics like the Safety Bit and Memento Ring. The shell uses White Wind when the head is out to heal it for 9,999 HP.

Upon defeat, the Neslug will drop Mog's ultimate weapon, Gungnir.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Firaga is recommended for direct attacks against the head to hit Neslug's weakness. Casting Vanish on the party will protect them from all of Neslug's attacks except Sticky Goo, allowing them to attack without fear of Megaton Smash.
