Basilisk is a fiend in Final Fantasy X, encountered on the Djose Highroad.

Stats[]

Battle[]

Basilisk's use a physical attack and Stone Gaze, which petrifies a party member. It is usually accompanied by Funguars. Basilisks will not use Stone Gaze if only one character is active. If multiple characters are active, the Basilisk will always use Stone Gaze on its first turn; however, in a battle with multiple Basilisks, this only applies to the first one to get a turn. When Provoked, Basilisks will only use Stone Gaze. Against Valefor, they will either do nothing or use Stone Gaze.

Kimahri can learn Stone Breath from Basilisk.

Strategy[]

As Funguars that often accompany the Basilisk cast Fire, the player can summon Ifrit who is healed by Fire-elemental attacks and is immune to petrification. Armor with Stone Ward is also enough to negate the effects of Stone Gaze.

Etymology[]

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).
