Saberclaw is an enemy in Final Fantasy XV fought in Cleigne and during the Secure the Mountain Pass hunt. It is a canine enemy that appears in packs.


Relative of the sabertusk indigenous to the mountains of Cleigne. Its claws, while menacing, pale in comparison to its brutal fangs, which are capable of ripping flesh, bone, and even metal to ribbons before regenerating anew.

Saberclaw spotted in Pallareth Pass, north of Lestallum. Hunters were dispatched to rid the area of the saberclaw packs that were raiding ration-carrying trucks and any other cars that passed through the area. This remedied the issue for a time, but it now seems the problem will require regular population control.

Saberclaw is weak to firearms, machinery and ice. It resists fire and light. It is fast and attacks in packs and can overwhelm the player.


To avoid continually being knocked down, the player can keep the Defend button pressed and wait for parry opportunities, which should be frequent. Mace of the Fierce is a good weapon for this as its parry hits multiple targets and using the royal arms for parries does not drain HP. Using ice elemancy on the pack is also powerful.

The hunt area has a big rock the player can point-warp to get out of the saberclaws' range.


Its Japanese name is Taowu. Taowu is a mythological monster of ancient China known as one of the Si-xiong (four calamities).
