The Poison Toad and stronger Gigantoad can both inflict Poison status with their normal attacks. The Poison Toad is fought on the Tropical Island, and the Gigantoad is found in the Deist Cavern and Cave of Mysidia. The Poison Toad is a Rank Four enemy, and the Gigantoad is Rank Five.
There are two different toad-types in this game. The Gigantoad is the weakest type of toad, and the Toadgre is stronger and can inflict Toad status on the party. The other type of toad enemy is the Bog Toad. Alone they are no threat, but they attack in groups of three or more with a Bog Witch who commands them to cast the Toad spell on the party in succession. The Gigantoad and Toadgre appear in the Underground Waterway, and the Bog Toad appears in the Sylvan Cave.
In the Advance release, the Golden Toad is a rare enemy in the Lunar Ruins that drops rare items such as Golden Apples and Megalixirs. The Platinum Toad is encountered as a mini-boss in the same dungeon and must be caught and defeated to pass to the next area.
The Gigantoad and Leap Frog are enemies exclusive to the World of Ruin. The Gigantoad knows the Rippler Lore, though it lacks the MP to actually use the ability. The Leap Frog is one of the rare enemies in the game capable of using Jump attacks. Rare Pinwheels can be stolen from them.
The Touch Me and Toxic Frog are fought in and around Gongaga and the Temple of the Ancients respectively. Both are very weak enemies but their physical attacks can transform characters into frogs and back again. They also possess the Frog Song Enemy Skill, which inflicts Frog and Sleep.
Frogs also play a part in a minigame involving Quina. At the Qu's Marshes around the world, various frogs can be seen hopping around a pond. The player can play a minigame in which Quina attempts to catch the frogs. Catching frogs rewards the players with items and increases the damage done by Frog Drop.
The Doomed genus vaguely resembles toads, and several of them are named as such, including the Gigantoad. The relation ends there, however, as Doomed are Undead, and it is even theorized they are composed of several corpses.
In this game, Toad is an entire genus of enemy. The basic types of toad include Gigantoad, Iguion, Lizard, Speartongue, Suriander and Abaddon. The Wood Toad and Tarasque appear as rare game enemies, and the Croakadile is a Rank II Mark.
All varieties of toad can use Angelsong to cast Regen on themselves. The loot dropped by them is also shared, and includes Horns, Pointed Horns, and Water Stones.
Terraquatics are a subtype of feral creatures which closely resembles toads. The variants are Bloodfang Bass, Breshan Bass, Hedge Frog, Mud Frog, Ceratosaur, and Ceratoraptor. The Mud Frog and Ceratoraptor use the ability Courtship Dance to call more frogs.
Terraquatics return as a subtype of feral creatures, and can be encountered in New Bodhum in 3 AF, Yaschas Massif and Sunleth Waterscape in all eras, Archylte Steppe, and Oerba in 300 AF. The variants include Bloodfang Bass, Breshan Bass, Hedge Frog, Mud Frog, Ceratosaur, Ceratoraptor, Spiceacilian, Tabasco Toad, Pitterpatter, and Chunerpeton.
Gigantoads can be found throughout Eorzea. They are known for their tendency to pull any prey or attacker toward them with their tongue, before attempting to flatten them with "Labored Leap." Their hides are valued by leatherworkers.
Appearing as large, toad-like creature, the Giant Toad likes to hide in its pond. Its weakness is located on its belly. You can expose its weak-spot by blowing massive damage on it or freeze the pond it's sitting.
There are five types of toads that appears in Final Fantasy Legend II.
