The Test Rider is an enemy in Final Fantasy VI.

Stats Edit

Battle Edit

Like his palette swap counter parts (Dante, Hell's Rider, and Death Rider), Test Rider always attacks alone. He uses a powerful physical attack called Golden Lance, and has a chance to counter any attack.

The Test Rider can be morphed into an Ice Shield using Ragnarok, but this is an inefficient way to amass them compared to Coliseum betting, as the low chance of Metamorphose working.

StrategyEdit

Bio spells are effective against him.

Coliseum setup Edit

It is best to not use Locke or Gogo with Steal, Mug or have someone equipped with the Thief's Knife. At similar levels, Shadow or Gogo (sans above commands) will work just as well as Locke, and they'll have one fewer Golden Lance to worry about.

Ice or Water-resistant/absorbing equipment protects against Flash Rain. A character under the Imp status with the entire set of imp equipment is a perfect candidate against Test Rider. The Imp equipment lets them absorb Flash Rain, and their high defense renders the rest of Test Rider's attacks useless.

EtymologyEdit

Its Japanese name may derive from the English phrase "try a ride" (トライアライド, torai a raido?). It may simultaneously be a pun on "tri allied", the "tri" (トライ, torai?) prefix in reference to the beast's three horns, and "allied" (アライド, araido?) being in reference to the enemy being a cooperation of man and beast.
