This guy is like a souped-up, giant Great Malboro, so equip armor with the Berserkproof, Confuseproof, and Auto Med abilities, or [Ribbon] if you're playing the PAL or "International" releases. Malboro Menace will always ambush you on the first turn and use Putrid Breath immediately, so ifyou have a weapon bearing the First Strike auto ability, make sure you have it equipped to get an extra hit on him at the beginning of the battle, or swap that character our for Yuna who will summon an Aeon to take Malboro Menace's Putrid Breath attack. (If anyone is curious, Putrid Breath is simply Bad Breath plus small damage, but the damage is insignificant compared to having an entire party afflicted by Confusion...) His other methods of assault include two different tentacle attacks - one inflicts Petrify on a single character, and the other inflicts all four 'Breaks' on a single character. Like Stratavis before him, Malboro Menace is vulnerable to Doom, although the Doom counter is set at 200.
