Each Tentacle's weaknesses are different, so use Edgar's AutoCrossbow and Sabin's Vacuum Wave to be safe when attacking.

PlayStation Bestiary entry for #310

Uses Seize to grab someone from the party and drain HP. He'll Discard you when he's done.

PlayStation Bestiary entry for #311

Another way of killing these off is to attack with three different types of elemental magic, then deliver the finishing blow physically.

PlayStation Bestiary entries for #312 and #313

The Tentacles are bosses in Final Fantasy VI. Four of them are fought in the Figaro Castle engine room, infesting the machines blocking Figaro Castle underground. After freeing the engines Edgar hides with the party, leaving the Crimson Robbers and making them think that the monster killed their leader.

Battle[]

The Tentacles do not attack to inflict damage often, using only normal attacks or Bio. They often use Stun or Entwine to inflict Slow on a party member. When a party member is afflicted with Slow the Tentacles will grab them, removing them from battle for a period of time and slowly draining their HP and MP until the Tentacle releases the character.

The lower left Tentacle is weak to Fire but absorbs Ice, whereas the the lower right one is the opposite. The upper Tentacles don't have elemental weaknesses, the right one even absorbs Lightning. Both right Tentacles can be put to Sleep, whereas only the top left one can be Stopped. The lower left Tentacle is not immune to Death. None of them can be Confused or Petrified (because it is not possible to petrify Death resistant enemies).

Strategy[]

Since the Tentacles only grab slowed characters, equipping Hermes Sandals prevents it due to unremovable Haste granting immunity to Slow. Unfortunately Edgar will get auto-equipped for this fight, which doesn't include relics, but the player can at least buy upgraded gear for him in South Figaro.

The player can Stop and Sleep the top left and right Tentacles respectively and meanwhile hit the lower ones with their elemental weaknesses Fire (left) and Ice (right). With luck, Edgar's Chainsaw or the Banish spell (if learned already) may kill the lower left Tentacle instantly. Afterwards the player should hit the upper ones with anything except lightning.
