The Basilisk is an enemy in Final Fantasy IV. It is an easy enemy to deal with by using Cecil to attack physically or Rydia simply to use Chocobo. Edward can inflict Sleep or Confuse on them to make the battle easier.
Basilisk is a fictional beast that appeared in medieval bestiaries, it is said that a single gaze to their eyes would kill or petrify the observer. It was supposed to appear when a chicken's egg was hatched by a snake or a frog (hence their reptilian appearance).The
