-[Author's Note]-

One of my personal Favorite Final Fantasies. Final Fantasy III is
one of the most complex RPG Games to date. It is very feature
rich. I have decided I would give this FAQ one last update because
I was missing various BOSSES for whatever reason.

Well Enjoy! :)

easier.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Marshal isn't considered a Boss in my book, but yet some contiune to
ask questions about it. Okay it is very simple folks, you simply fend
off the Lobos first and then go for regular attacks on Marshal while

he will die, and the party will break appart.
