The Whale Zombie is a flying, undead enemy from Final Fantasy IX. The party can find it on the beaches of the Outer Continent, Lost Continent, and Forgotten Continent accessed on the Blue Narciss, and the beaches of the Mist Continent in endgame.

StatsEdit

Battle Edit

Whale Zombies are great sources of EXP once the player can access Lost Continent and Outer Continent beaches with the Blue Narciss. Its Zombie Powder and Venom Breath attacks inflict debilitating status effects. If its Zombie Powder attack turns someone into a Zombie, a Magic Tag (can be stolen from the Whale Zombie itself) will cure it.

Whale Zombie is a good enemy to eat with Quina to teach him/her Lv5 Death, which is useful for leveling up against Grand Dragons.

Strategy Edit

A physical character with either the Undead Killer or Bird Killer ability can make short work of this cetacean. As the Whale Zombie is undead, casting Life or Full-Life on it will also defeat it instantly. The Whale Zombie can be reduced to 1 HP with a Phoenix Down, easily putting it in range to be eaten by Quina.
