  • The Fantoccini will attack and cast appropriate spells for its assumed job.
    • Blue Mage Fantoccini will always have Frypan in additional being restricted to the Blue Magic spells the player has equipped.

  • Moblin Fantocciniman's roll effects' target can be either the Fantoccini or the player.
  • Effects from Marrionette Dice can be any of the following:
  • It is reported that defeating the Moblin Fantocciniman instead will render the Fantoccini and any pet it might have completely frozen in terror for the remainder of the battle. While amusing and challenging, this is not recommended due to its difficulty.
  • Upon defeating the Fantoccini a chest will appear that will reward the player with 2000 Experience Points or Limit Points as well as a chance at obtaining a the job-specific piece of equipment that matches the player's main job.
    • Worm Mulch is extremely common while the job specific piece can be relatively rare.
