Purobolos is an enemy fought exclusively in the Game Boy Advance and later releases at Arubboth. They are only moderately dangerous, having regular attacks and Self-Destruct VIII. However, they are valuable for their item drops. They are the strongest of the Bomb-family.

Final Fantasy V[edit | edit source]

Purobolos is a boss fought at the Walse Meteorite in a group of six. They are dangerous to an unprepared party as they have moderately powerful physical attacks, can use Self-Destruct at any moment, can heal with Cura, and when killed will cast Arise on the enemy party, potentially reviving any defeated Purobolos. Silence can be applied to them to prevent Cura and Arise. While Purobolos is an upgrade to the Bomb, it is still weaker than the Grenade.

Final Fantasy X[edit | edit source]

Like all other Bombs, it will grow up to two times after taking damage, and when at full size will attack with Self-Destruct for roughly 2,500 damage. It can also attack with a regular attack and Firaga. Kimahri can learn Self-Destruct as a Ronso Rage.

Purobolos is an enemy fought at Pharos - Third Ascent, and is the most powerful of the normal Bomb-type enemies.

Unlike all others of the Bomb-family, it is not weak to Water-elemental attacks and does not absorb Fire-elemental attacks, but instead is weak to Holy-elemental attacks and absorbs Dark-elemental attacks.

Final Fantasy XIV[edit | edit source]
