Fiend Listing - Monster Arena

Monster Arena > Mt. Gagazet > Maelspike

HP: 10,000

Maelspike is one of the few underwater fiends that you can battle (and capture) for the Monster Arena. Because you fight them underwater, only Tidus, Rikku and Wakka will be able to participate in the battle, which limits the number of strategies that you can use to defeat them. That being said, they are very easy to defeat.

Maelspike can be hit with Darkness status effect, so you can have Wakka use his Dark Attack on it to greatly reduce the amount of damage it can deal.
