Giant Moa (also refered to as Moa) is a recurring enemy depicted as a giant flightless bird.

The Moa is a FOE that can be found in the second stratum, the Primitive Jungle.
When first encountered, the Moa is quite a threat to the party since it deals a good amount of damage and doesn't shy away from using Rush over and over again, killing your entire party.
The Moa itself takes a good amount of damage, so killing it quickly by using skills helps. Also the Medic's Salve skill allows you to counteract the damage from Rush, effectively countering the Moas strategy.
- Rush (Uses ???):
Moa (Etrian Odyssey II)Edit
A large, birdlike denizen of the forest. Though flightless, its legs are extremely powerful.
No longer a FOE, the Moa is now a regular monster in the 2nd Stratum of Etrian Odyssey II, the Auburn Thicket.
The attack pattern of the Moa stayed the same, even after losing its FOE status: The Moa will either attack normally or Rush to deal damage to the entire party of adventurers.
Kill it first in battle and have a Medic or War Magus with Salve ready and they shouldn't pose that much of a threat.
- Rush (Uses Legs):
Giant Moa (Etrian Odyssey IV)Edit
In battle, its Heavy Stamp hits the entire party, making it advisable to bind its legs.
- Heavy Stamp (Uses Legs): Inflicts Bash damage on all party members.
Giant Moa (Etrian Odyssey Untold) Edit
Similar to its appearance in the original Etrian Odyssey, the Giant Moa is a FOE that can be found in the mid levels of the second stratum, the Primitive Jungle. These FOEs are initially stationary, rotating 90 degrees for every 4 player steps, but if the player is within their short sight range they turn aggressive and begin pursuing them.
While it can use the skill Rush to attack the front line of your party, it is only a threat to adventurers that are new to the stratum.

Giant Moa (Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold) Edit
This large, flightless bird has evolved a pair of powerful legs!
Giant Moa is an enemy found on the Auburn Thicket, starting from B06F.
This enemy can be quite a threat in combat, using its Heavy Stomp attack to deal heavy damage to the entire party. This, coupled with its high natural defenses makes the Giant Moa the most dangerous enemy on the early floors of the second stratum.
The most effective way to deal with the Giant Moa is to bind its legs, which blocks Heavy Stomp completely as well as inflicting stun on it. Other status effects are also effective, as the Giant Moa doesn't resist any of them.
When defeated, the Giant Moa will drop the Stiff Leg Meat ingredient.
- Heavy Stomp (uses legs): Deals heavy damage to the entire party.
- The Moa is based on a extinct flightless bird, originally found in New Zeland.
