Deathgaze (デスゲイズ, Desugeizu?), also known as Death Gaze, Doom Gaze, Deathguise and Grim Gaze, is a recurring boss in the Final Fantasy series since its debut in Final Fantasy VI. It usually appears as a flying winged creature with skeletal features. Its attacks and abilities vary highly between each appearance, but it usually has a large repertoire of magical and physical attacks. As the name suggests, it often has access to an instant death ability, like Death, Kill and Level 5 Death.
