The "Sicarius" Zenos was a special foe that appeared in Mobius Final Fantasy in February 2020. He is a direct analogue of Zenos Yae Galvus from Final Fantasy XIV.

Zenos is a high-powered attack foe, who uses multiple sword styles to lay waste to your party! You can't use Ultimate Attacks against him... but he is more vulnerable to Ailments.

Use the Melee (effect).pngMelee and Ranged (effect).pngRanged states to dodge his attacks!

Special Actions[edit | edit source]

Zenos is a rather gadgety fight, as Square was trying to simulate aspects of Final Fantasy XIV. Some notable elements:

Zenos is immune to Break except in specific cases... and does not show this on his status display. You can only cause Break damage to him while he is preparing for his Art of the Sword attack.

Zenos has permanent Damage Reduction (effect).pngDamage Reduction. Zenos is also Immune to Bio (effect).pngImmune to Bio, Immune to Slow (effect).pngImmune to Slow, Immune to Stun (effect).pngImmune to Stun, and Immune to Sleep (effect).pngImmune to Sleep... but feel free to load him up with any other ailments you care for! When those ailments run out, Zenos does NOT get the usual temporary immunity from them. Load him right back up again!

Players are permanently afflicted with Ultimate Gauge Locked (effect).png Ultimate Gauge Locked -- no Ultimates!

Melée and Ranged attacks[edit | edit source]

Zenos' main attacks are based on the players' proximity to him.

  • If a player makes at least one regular "tap" attack on Zenos, the player gains the Melee (effect).pngMelee boon. This boon will enable the player to avoid Zenos' Art of the Swell attack.
  • If a player does NOT perform any regular attacks in a turn (Abilities and Elemental Drives only), then the player will gain the Ranged (effect).pngRanged boon. This boon will enable the player to avoid Zenos's Art of the Storm attack.
  • Zenos' third attack, Art of the Sword, cannot be avoided, but he is Breakable in the turn before it.

Players who do not avoid these attacks will be afflicted with Weaken (enhanced effect).png Vulnerability, which greatly increases the damage taken from Zenos' subsequent attacks. They stack with mutiple applications, for exponential damage to players. Watch out!
