Battle[edit | edit source]

A leopard-like creature with tentacles instead of whiskers, Torama uses magic attacks at first, but becomes aggressive when low in HP. It can be a dangerous enemy when the party is at level 100 because they often start battles with Lv5 Death, ending the game instantly if the party has no Death resistance.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Summoning Carbuncle protects the party from most of Torama's attacks, apart from Meteor.
