NAME ORIGIN
    Malboro is thought to be a reference to Marlboro cigarettes, which the brand itself is named after Great Marlborough Street in London where the original cigarette factory was located, due to the creature's penchant for exuding toxic fumes. Terra is Latin for "earth".
    In Final Fantasy Origins, this enemy was named Mezzo Malboro. Mezzo means half or medium and comes from Italian where it translates as "middle".
    The Malboro Terra's Japanese name (ランドモルボル) translates as "Land Malboro".
