Petriglare turns its enemies into stone.
Final Fantasy VI PlayStation Bestiary entry
Stats[edit | edit source]
Battle[edit | edit source]
Its special attack, Stone Gaze, can Petrify a party member, but otherwise it is an unremarkable enemy. As with most enemies in the wild in the World of Ruin, it is weak to Ice, so Blizzara and Blizzaga spells are very effective. The Basilisk drops Tortoise Shields, part of the Imp equipment set.

Etymology[edit | edit source]
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
