Xande (ザンデ, Zande) is the main antagonist of Final Fantasy III. He is a powerful wizard and student of the Great Magus Noah. When his master gives him the gift of mortality, the thought of dying sends Xande over the edge. Before the DS remake, his name was originally fan translated as Zande. Although he is mentioned several times in the course of the game, he appears in person only once, when the Warriors of Light battle him.
Powers and Stats
Origin: Final Fantasy III
Age: Unknown, though he has existed at least 1000 years of stopped time
Classification: Formerly Immortal Human Wizard
Powers and Abilities: Super strength, speed, durability, Magic, Elemental Manipulation (Of the fire, ice, and lightning variety), Flight and levitation, Forcefield Creation (Can cast Protect), Time Manipulation (Can cast Haste and has caused time to stop on a global scale, which is heavily suggested to be of his own power)
Lifting Strength: At least Class M (Far superior to Goldor who lugged a large gold chain comparable in size to the airship Enterprise across the easternmost continent)
Striking Strength: Planet Class
Durability: Planet level (Doga mentioned that, for the Warriors of Light to have a chance of defeating Xande, they would need to collect the weapons sealed in the Forbidden Land Eureka)
Range: Extended melee range. Planetary with timestop and the rest of his magic.
Standard Equipment: None notable
Intelligence: Hard to say given, while he may have been the one ensuring everything in the plot was going as planned, he was being manipulated by the Cloud of Darkness the entire time (post conjuring Darkness to cause time to stop anyway). Should be fairly bright regardless, what with once having been one of Noah’s top apprentices.
Weaknesses: Has an extreme fear of death
Note: Respect Thread.
