Byblos is a boss in Final Fantasy V. He attacks the party in the Library of the Ancients just before they talk to Mid.


Byblos likes to inflict status ailments. His favorite is Confusion, but he also likes to drain your MP with Magic Hammer and half your level with Discord, will occasionally counter physical attacks by casting Protect on himself and magical attacks with Toad on the party. When he's at low HP, he will occasionally counter with Drain for approximately 300 damage, so do not attack him at this point unless you'll deal more damage than he'll drain. A Black Mage should pelt him with Fira, since he's weak to Fire magic. A Mystic Knight can also help, while a Summoner should use Ifrit.

A cheap way to win is to use the Blue Magic Death Claw. This will take him down to single digits, and make killing him easier, additionally using a Fire Rod should terminate him quickly; these can be bought in Karnak.
