The Developer's Office is a secret area available in all versions except the North American SNES release, accessed by walking east through a hidden passage in the Dwarven Castle Pub. It contains all of the developers of Final Fantasy IV for you to talk to, with random encounters for some of them as well, each with their own script and gag. The only item here is the Lustful Lali-Ho located in the bookshelf of the basement, which is a joke item that has no effect besides a funny scene when used.

Boss Info:
Name
Tetsuya Takahashi
HP
65000
Weaknesses

Tetsuya will keep saying "You wanna die?" until the battle ends, but this does nothing. Her defenses are high enough that your attacks won't do any damage to her. The easiest way to kill her is to cast Poison, then cast Toad, and then attack her.

Akihiko Matsui[edit]

Akihiko will start the battle bragging about his stats, cast Libra on a random party member, cast Libra on himself, and then run away in shame.

Kiyoshi Yoshii[edit]

Boss Info:
Name

Kiyoshi won't attack you, and will instead cast Sleep on himself and then run away after a series of messages.

Hiroyuki Ito[edit]

If attacked, Hiromi will say "Clumsy!" and counter with Slap. She will eventually retreat once her manager calls her.

Kazuhiko Aoki[edit]

Boss Info:
Name

Attacking him for 1HP of damage will cause him to use Detonate and deal 1HP of damage to a party member, otherwise he will just die with a single hit.
