Template:Enemy Archeosaur is an enemy in Final Fantasy V. It uses Claw as its critical attack. Archeosaur also relies on its two Breath attacks, Poison Breath and Zombie Breath, to damage all targets, and possibly inflict Poison or Zombie status randomly. Archeosaur also has the Blue Magic spell Level 3 Flare, but the player has to Control it and cast Reflect on Archeosaur to learn it.
The word root archaeo-, as in "archaeology," comes from Greek archaios meaning "ancient."
When combined with the suffix -saur, which is derived from Greek sauros, meaning "lizard", the creature's name means "ancient lizard".
