Manticore is a boss in Final Fantasy V. It attacks Mid and Cid while they investigate the meteor. When the party approaches it, it attacks them.


The Manticore is a tough enemy, capable of taking out your party quickly. It is best to have characters with high Defense, so make your party Knights. You'll have to constantly heal your party, so make sure you have some higher level White Magic available.

If you have some Ninjas, try throwing some Shurikens and Scrolls. His lack of magical weaknesses makes this battle harder than previous battles.

You can also change everyone's Jobs to Summoner and spam Titan. It will not work if the opening move is Aqua Breath or Frost, so just reload and try again.
