Powerful floateye. Its evil gaze deals damage.

Ahrimans in Final Fantasy Tactics Advance are crimson variations of the Floateye enemies. Their high Move stat (5) and ability to fly over other units and high terrain make it one of the most mobile enemies. The Ahriman is most notable for its deadly Roulette spell. Fortunately, Ahrimans have one of the lowest HP scores for any monster, and their Defense score is rather low. That is why the Ahriman has the ability to lower the attack power of enemy units with the Circle ability. This skill more than doubles the time that the Ahriman gets to stay on the field before it is KO'd.
