Stats[edit | edit source]

Battle[edit | edit source]

Basilisk's most deadly ability is Stone Gaze, which petrifies a party member. Its physical attack is weak. It is usually accompanied by Funguars.

Basilisks will not use Stone Gaze if only one character is active. If multiple characters are active, 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.

Kimahri can learn Stone Breath from Basilisk.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

As Funguars that often accompany it cast Fire, the player can summon Ifrit who is healed by Fire-elemental attacks and is immune to petrification.

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).
