~ Rubicante to Edge before unleashing "Inferno" on him.

Rubicante is the leader of the Elemental Archfiends in Final Fantasy IV. The strongest of the group, Golbez left him in charge of the Tower of Babil, the villain's main stronghold.


With the help of King Giott, Cecil and his group invaded the tower from the subterranean. Once inside, they see Rubicate speaking with Dr. Lugae, his underling, leaving him in charge while he went to Eblan in the surface. Back on the surface, Cecil and the rest went to Eblan only to discover that Rubicante wiped out the place, forcing the survivors to retreat to a nearby cave. Inside the cave, they witness  the prince of Eblan, Edge, challenging Rubicante. Rubicante easily defeats him, but spares his life, as he sees it would be a waste to kill a warrior with such potential. Cecil convinces Edge to join his group, so they can defeat Rubicante together. They make it to the top floor, where Rubicante awaits for them, however, he doesn't want to fight, telling Edge he wouldn't reach his full potential with anger alone, and thus he was not a worthy opponent for him. Edge gets furious, releasing all of his strength and challenging Rubicante. As a chivalrous warrior, Rubicante heals them all, so they can fight him with all their might. The group defeat him, so he praises them for their efforts, wishing them good luck. Later on, Zemus resurrects him along with the other fiends inside the Giant of Babil, where they team up to fight Cecil, but even then they are all defeated.


  • Dhuran, from Dragon Quest media, probably got its inspiration from Rubicante, both being honorable warriors, the leader of four fiends and even healing the heroes' team before battling.
  • If Edge uses Steal on him he either opens or closes his cloak.
