Purobolos is a fiend/bomb-type enemy in Final Fantasy XII found in the Pharos. Unlike the other bomb-type enemies, the Purobolos is considered unique as it is weak to Holy instead of Water and absorbs Dark instead of Fire. Six of them are also fought in the Zodiac versions' Trial Mode in Stage 46.

Being a bomb-shaped fiend dwelling within the Pharos. the bones of ancient monstrosities were used in its creation, trapping within it a fearsome volume of magicks and Mist. Its goal is first and last the defense of the magicite sleeping at the very top of the Pharos. To this end will it give its life, going out with something of a bang if necessary.

Until quite recently, the mallet was a tool used exclusively to bring the deeply distressed to their senses. However, the violent appearance of the tool has lessened its popularity as of late, and mallet-makers everywhere are feeling the strain of a downturn in demand. But now a savior has emerged from a most unlikely direction: the famed Mameco the Pug and several other mummers have begun using mallets in their work on stage. Nothing is more crowd-pleasing than braining a fool with a mallet, it seems.
