Launches its attack with Tackle and Snowball. Powers-up with Green Cherry after taking damage. It's very weak vs. fire.

Final Fantasy VI PlayStation Bestiary entry

Yeti, also called Umaro, is a boss in Final Fantasy VI fought in the Yeti's Cave.

If Mog is in the party after he is beaten, Yeti joins the party as Umaro. If not, he will remain in the cave, collapsed until the player returns with Mog to recruit him.

There is a second entry for Yeti in the game data, but it is not used. Since it is a weaker version, it is likely it was a battle originally intended for the World of Balance.

Battle[edit | edit source]

Yeti is weak against Fire and Poison. He attacks with his physical, his special attack Tackle, and Ice Storm. Halfway through the battle he uses a Green Cherry to increase his stats, and starts attacking with Surge and Snowball. The AI script below shows Yeti is meant to gain the Regen status after using the cherry, but due to the way Regen works in Final Fantasy VI, enemies that are immune to Sap are also immune to Regen, so Yeti will not gain the status though the game attempts to cast it.

A glitch involves having the Yeti use Jump, and using the Super Ball, in which the enemy is stuck in this state and the player must use another Super Ball to make the enemy reappear.

Another bug consists of having the Yeti poisoned and defeating him in mid-air when he uses Jump. Although the player has won the battle, the entry will not appear in the Game Boy Advance's bestiary.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The party can easily defeat the Yeti by employing Fire and Poison attacks, such as Firaga and Bio spells. The player can also cast Ultima for an easier win.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

The Yeti or Abominable Snowman is an ape-like cryptid taller than an average human that is said to inhabit the Himalayan region of Nepal and Tibet.

Umaro is a portmanteau of the Japanese term for cryptids, UMA (Unidentified Mysterious Animal), and the Japanese suffix "maru".
