Bestiary (Hardtype)

by Lassarina Aoibhell

This is the bestiary I have compiled for Final Fantasy IV Hardtype. PLEASE do not copy it. I have done my best to be sure it is accurate and complete, but if you come across an error please let me know. This bestiary does not include bosses; I'm writing a boss guide for that. The "First Found" column indicates the area of the world where you first encounter this type of enemy.
