This guide will help you find and take down this optional boss in Final Fantasy 16.
Final Fantasy 16 Muddy Murder Hunt Guide
The Flan Prince is located in the Hawk’s Cry Cliff in the Imperial Province of Rosaria. To get there, teleport to Auldhyl Docks Obelisk and head east until you find a clearing near a river. You won’t be able to see the boss from afar, since it stays underground until you approach its nest.
The Muddy Murder monster, the Flan Prince, is a formidable foe who can cast various magic spells such as Stonega, Firaga, and Blizzaga. Although these attacks are strong, you can avoid damage by constantly moving.
Besides magic spells, the Flan Prince has several fast physical attacks that can be difficult to dodge. For example, it has a quick lunge attack where it throws itself toward you using its hands as propellers.
One move you want to be wary of is the Hands Down attack, where the monster enlarges its hands and tries to flatten Clive into a pulp. When the boss is about to perform this move, make sure you back away quickly, or you will get slapped to death.
If you’re not good at dodging, bringing Titan into this fight can be a game-changer. This is because the Titanic Block can stop the boss’s physical attacks, allowing you to stay near the creature constantly.
Defeating the Flan Prince will give you 5,200 XP, 95 Ability Points, 12,000 Gil, and 30 Renown. You will also obtain the Gelatinous Mass, one of the materials required to craft the Drakeslayer’s Bracelets.
