Basilisks (バシリスク, Bashirisuku?) are recurring enemies from the series. They appear as giant horned lizards with bulging eyes that greatly resemble chameleons, although in several recent installments they have become more Anacondaur-like in their appearances. Their common threat is their ability to Petrify characters using their stare, although there are often times when this status is their biggest weakness. The petrification usually is gradual (similar to Condemned when compared with Death), but in some games it happens instantly.
