The Tyrannosaurus, also known as the T-Rex, is an enemy in Final Fantasy IV Advance and The Complete Collection. It is found in Porom's trial. Its bony appearance is probably meant to resemble the boss from Final Fantasy V.

Battle Edit

FFIV Lightning


Tyrannosaurus uses Earthquake. Its only other main attacks are strong physicals, which can easily be healed. However, if one casts magic on the Tyrannosaurus, it will counter with a high-powered magical attack of its own—it will counter Fire magic with Flame, Ice magic with Ice Storm, and Lightning magic with Lightning.

When vanquished, the Seraphim's Mace, Porom's ultimate weapon, is acquired.


Porom should cast Float to avoid Tyrannosaur's Earthquake. Physical attacks are advised to defeat it, although even its counterattacks are not that strong, and only Ice Storm does notable damage. Flare and Holy, however, are not countered provided the magic using party members (Palom, Porom, Rosa, and/or Rydia) are at a high enough level.

Etymology Edit

The Tyrannosaurus is a genus of dinosaur that lived during the late Cretaceous period. Its scientific name means "tyrant lizard". The species Tyrannosaurus rex is one of the largest land predators ever known and means "king of the tyrant lizards".
