Chadarnook is a daemon that has possessed a painting, and switches between monster and ghost forms. If the party snapped a photo of the goddess form, Vyv says it is too risqué for his magazine. A photo of her demon form leads Vyv to believe the picture is haunted. The former statement may allude to how chadarnook's nudity in Final Fantasy VI was censored in some versions.
- A daemon said to inhabit a prized portrait in Accordo. It manifests itself as both a gorgeous goddess and a grotesque ghost. The allegedly possessed painting was once on public display, but the exhibition quickly closed due to patrons reporting paranormal phenomena. The chadarnook only assumed its fairer form once the woman featured in the portrait went missing.
- Size: 12.86 ft. Weight: 906.5 lb.

Chadarnook uses both physical and magical attacks and changes her resistances between physical and magic. The battle starts against the white ghostly version of the daemon, which resists weapons, but is vulnerable to magic.
The white chadarnook uses non-elemental magical attacks and a spinning melee attack. She is the only enemy that inflicts magical damage without an element. She can confuse the party with her pink fog.
The black chadarnook resists magic, but takes normal damage from weapons. Her attacks are Darkness attacks, and involve blanketing the party in green fog and a big explosion; when it explodes, it turns back into the white chadarnook. The fog is the only attack whose damage can be negated with 100% Darkness protection, yet it is a physical attack. The black chadarnook can pick Noctis up in her monster claw and deal continuous damage, similar to iron giant-type daemons; this attack can be blocked. She can poison the party.
The battlefield has no point-warp spots.
Chadarnook can be poisoned. The party can avoid Poison/Confuse by equipping status protection accessories, or eating food that gives Poisonproof (there is no "Confuseproof" buff) or Resilient; however, the party would need to use Umbra at the hotel to return to the open world to do the latter, as Altissia's only restaurant doesn't serve food with these buffs and there are no havens.
The player can use elemancy against the white chadarnook. Attacking the black chadarnook's blindside deals increased damage and can trigger blindside links with nearby allies, which can put her into a vulnerable state, which is a good time to unleash Armiger, if available.
Chadarnook is named after the boss in Final Fantasy VI.
