Dr. Lugae is a boss in the game Final Fantasy IV. He is a servant of Golbez, and does experiments for him and the Archfiends. He works in the Tower of Babil. His prized creation was a robot named Barnabas.


Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Lugae was responsible for killing the king and queen of Eblan and turning them into chimerae, although Edge blamed this incident on Rubicante. Lugae was talking to Rubicante when Cecil Harvey, Kain Highwind, Rydia, Rosa Joanna Farrell, and Yang Fang Leiden arrived. He warped Rubicante from the Underworld to the Overworld. Rydia spoke up after this, and it caught Lugae's attention. Lugae then summoned Barnabas and had it attack the party. However, Barnabas was incredibly stupid, and attacked Lugae instead. Eventually, the party was able to defeat Barnabas, and Lugae turned it into "Barnabas-Z," which proceeded to blow itself up--alternatively, Lugae falls first and Barnabas self-destructs upon running out of oil. Lugae himself then transformed into a heavily armed skeletal robot and attacked the party with a variety of lasers and status effects, but was defeated as well.

His theme music is called "Dancing Calcabrina" and is shared with Luca's dolls, implying that there may be some connection between their animation and his experiments.

Lugae was also responsible for the construction of the Tower of Babil's most potent weapon, the Super Cannon.

Dr. Lugae is fought inside the Tower of Babil. He has two forms, the Doctor fighting alongside Barnabas, and the monster form, which is skeletal-like.

Dr. Lugae is fought again in Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. If Golbez is in the party he will think on Lugae's potential if he had taken a different path.


  • In Final Fantasy Tactics, one can acquire a string puppet called a Lugae, which resembles Lugae's skeleton form on strings.
