Mardan Garayan caught in Muska Lacka Oasis.

The Mardan Garayan is a type of fish in the Dark Cloud series. They are unique in that they can only be caught with a Poison Apple.

In Dark Cloud, the Mardan Garayan can be caught at any time but are most common at Dusk, uncommon during Day/Night hours, and are most rare in the afternoon. You can find them in Matataki Village's Waterfall or more commonly at Muska Lacka Oasis. Mardan Garayans generally give between 150-500 FP; their value in FP is equal to twice their length, up to 100 centimeters. Each additional cm after that is worth 3 FP, with the multiplier ticking up every 10 cm. Catching a Mardan Garayan unlocks the option to purchase the Mardan Eins sword for 2500 FP. Mardan Garayans have the ability to reveal the type of trap associated with Large Chests, eliminating the need for keys (or guessing).

In Dark Chronicle, the Mardan Garayan can be caught from 6:00 PM – 8:00 AM at Fish Monster Swamp or Cave of Ancient Murals. They generally give between 200-500 FP. Mardan Garayans are related to the King Mardan fish.
