You must best me in battle if you wish to use me!Scylla/The Elder Staff
Scylla's main form of attacking is by using high-level spells such as Holy and Flare, many of which can deal heavy damage to the party if they are underleveled. She does not have a weakness so using strong attacks and well timed healing is essential to winning. In the original version, defeating Scylla earns the Ninja and Sage job roles.
3D Remake Edit
In the 3D remakes, Scylla is more of a threat as her physical attacks can inflict Petrify, and she now has access to the Curaja and Thundaga spells. It is recommended to have a Sage to heal every turn while a Scholar uses any attack items available, one or two Ninjas attack, and the fourth party member either on standby for backup healing or as additional damage dealing support.
Other appearances Edit
Scylla appears as the first boss of Syrcus Tower.
Scylla appears in Final Fantasy Trading Card Game with her Final Fantasy III and Final Fantasy XIV versions.
