When attacked, these will sound an alarm to summon allies. They attack with Tek Lasers and Schillers.

Final Fantasy VI PlayStation Bestiary entry

The Satellite, also known as the Telstar, is an enemy in Final Fantasy VI found in a monster-in-a-box in the Imperial Camp. It is dangerous, but the rewards for fighting it are well worth it. It is an alarm device built by the Gestahlian Empire using Magitek.

Stats[edit | edit source]

Battle[edit | edit source]

The Satellite attacks with Scintillation, which inflicts Blind on both Sabin and Shadow. It can also use Missile to take away 1/4 of a character's max HP and give them Sap. It calls in two Imperial Soldiers after 25 seconds, three 55 seconds later, and four Imperial Soldiers 120 seconds later. It counters any Blitz with Mega Berserk, which puts Sabin in Berserk status. Every twelve turns, it uses Dischord.

The Satellite drops Green Berets, the most powerful head armor up to this point. The Satellite appears on the Veldt, making it possible to stock up on the item early.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Sabin should use his physical attack and Shadow should throw Shurikens.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

In the context of spaceflight, a satellite is an artificial object which has been intentionally placed into orbit. Such objects are sometimes called artificial satellites to distinguish them from natural satellites such as the Moon.

Telstar is a series of satellites, including the first active communications satellite.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • A Satellite can also be seen on the map for the Imperial Camp (more specifically near the tent closest to the exit where Kefka ushers soldiers at the Returners before poisoning Doma), but it cannot be interacted with.
