Stats[edit | edit source]

Battle[edit | edit source]

Its attacks can induce the Petrify status. Despite this, its own strength is its own biggest weakness, and Quina has a weapon that can inflict Petrification on the Basilisk, the Needle Fork. Like most lizard enemies, it is also weak to Ice, so Vivi should cast Blizzara if Zidane managed to steal an Ice Staff from Gizamaluke.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

The 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).
