Cenchos, also known as the Kenkos, is an enemy from Final Fantasy III. It can be found as a monster-in-a-box in the Saronia Catacombs, as well as a regular encounter in this same dungeon. It is slightly dangerous if the party is underleveled, as it has a fairly strong physical attack, but it is otherwise not a difficult enemy to defeat. In the 3D versions, using Thundaga or Thundara can quickly end the battle.
Cenchos is a shortened form of Cichol Gricenchos. Cichol was the first leader of the Fomorians, a race of semi-divine beings similar to the Titans of Greek mythology. The name "Gricenchos" means "withered foot", or "footless", which fits the footless Cenchos of Final Fantasy III.In Irish mythology,
