Maliris Boss Battle Guide

Details

FINAL FANTASY IX_20200214150046.jpg

Maliris uses fire based attacks and strong physical attacks. Be careful when finishing off Maliris due to her last hurrah “Raining Swords”, which can inflict thousands of damage to the whole party.

Stealable Items

Masamune, Genji Armor, and an Ultima Sword.

Moveset

Raining Swords, Flame Blade

Strategy


FF9 Raining Swords
Be careful when damaging Maliris. Maliris uses Raining Swords as its last attack before dying. This move can potentially cause a game over if the player is not careful.

Having Auto-Reflect can make Vivi easily deal damage to Maliris, even though she casts reflect on herself. Simply cast the ability on your character with reflect to make the magic hit her.

Using Water and/or Ice based attacks will also prove useful. The most notable water and ice elemental attacks are Water/Blizzard spells, Steiner's Magic Sword, and the Eidolons Shiva and Leviathan.
