Trials of Mana Remake: Where To Find Black Rabite & How To Beat Him?

Cute and...dangerous?!

Who knew rabbits could be deadly? Well, they are in Trials of Mana Remake, especially this one. The Black Rabite is a secret boss in the game and is the toughest enemy too. Beating the Black Rabite is not easy and will take a lot of effort. In this guide, you will find out where to find Black Rabite and the tactics you can use to defeat him.

Black Rabite Boss Guide

Before going into the topic of how to fight the Black Rabite, let’s take a look at the location of this enemy.


Simply put, players need to finish the game, meaning that you need to complete the last dungeon of the main story. You are not required to complete the post-game story, just beating the game is enough. But, since he is such a challenging boss with a level that is more than 80, if you achieve the Tier 4 Classes before you decide to battle him, you will surely have an advantage.

Now, once you have done that, you need to look for a Black Rabite statue. This mega boss statue will have different locations based on which main character you have chosen. This is where to find Black Rabite according to your choice of the main character:

  • Charlotte or Kevin: Mirage Palace
  • Hawkeye or Riesz: Dark Castle
  • Duran or Angela: Crystal Desert

If you have played the original 1995 Trials of Mana, you will know that there was a certain condition to battle Black Rabite. In that game, you had to play as Duran or Angela in order to enter the Black Rabite boss fight. In the 2020 version, however, any main character can access this fight.

So, as soon as you see the statue, interact with it and you will be taken to an area where you will face the not-so-adorable Black Rabite. Now, it’s time to beat him and earn the Rabite Trapper achievement. Let’s see how to do it.

How to Defeat Black Rabite in Trials of Mana Remake

The Black Rabite has a lot of HP and can also summon demons to attack you. He also has quite a few powerful moves and magical attacks that can be very dangerous. You could be taken out in one hit – the Black Rabite is that lethal. For this reason, make sure that you are stocked up on healing items and have leveled up your characters.

During the fight, you must always keep an eye out for Black Rabite’s moves that cause significant damage, like the Jumbonk, Stone Cloud, Barrage Sting, Eye Beam, Lucent Beam and Ancient Curse. To fight this boss, you have to ensure that your HP is up always.


The Jumbonk is a move where he will get bigger in size, follow your position for a bit and land with immense force on a marked area. Get out of that area as soon as you can.

The Lava Wave will create an area on the ground which gets filled with lava. It’s not a major attack but try to dodge this one as well.

If he summons Level 99 demons, take them out first. They can attack you with Fetid Breath which can cause damage if you are nearby so it’s best to just kill them off quickly.

With the Eye Beam, he will shoot a deadly laser so you have to jump at the right time to avoid it.

Black Rabite might cast Dark Saber to heal himself. So, it’s best to use some other Saber like Saint Saber or Moon Saber.

And then there is the Ancient Curse attack which will create dark crystals on the battlefield. Go ahead and destroy them immediately otherwise you will get enough damage that will easily take you out.

After you beat the Black Rabite, you will get a chain ability called Obsidian Power which will lower the MP cost to zero for your team. This is a very useful ability and makes the tough fight worthwhile.
