Balbazak is a general of Runefaust, encountered as a boss in Shining Force: The Legacy of Great Intention and Shining Force: Resurrection of the Dark Dragon.


According to one of the Shining Force world books: "The commander of the Demon Beast Corps, he will launch his artificial body--which has been enhanced to many times its original strength by Darksol's magic--right onto your weapons. He has come to Uranbatol, northeast of Guardiana, for the construction of a fortress that will be used in the invasion of the four continents. He is one of the Runefaust Army's generals, and as would be expected of their most powerful soldier, his battles are very fierce. So fierce, in fact, that he even causes problems for his comrades."[1]


Though listed as having 5 Movement, Balbazak is immobile, and has no ranged attacks. So if you're having trouble, simply avoid placing any characters next to him and use ranged attacks only. Note that Balbazak actually has some magical resistance, so Knights and Archers will work better than Mages. Once you get his HP down low enough, you can send in a strong short-range attacker to help finish him off.


Darksol to Balbazak: "I rebuilt your body and made you a master of dragons... and you betray me?"
