Battle[edit | edit source]

Deenglow absorbs the Ice element, is immune to Gravity, and resists Lightning.

Its main attack is Wing Cutter. Its uncommon attacks are Ice, only used as a counter-attack if hit by three physical attacks, and Demi, which will reduce a character's current HP by 1/4, only used as a counter-attack if hit by three magical attacks (except Ice attacks). It doesn't matter whether the first two attacks were Physical or Magical, only the third attack will dictate whether Ice or Demi is used. Additionally, it will not counter as such; instead, it will override the "Next Attack Used" from Wing Cutter to Ice/Demi.

Defeating this foe will yield a Graviball, a missable and useful item that casts Demi upon one foe. Deenglows are also a prime source early on for Ethers, which can be stolen from them to get gil quickly since each Ether sells for 750 gil. If the player were to steal an Ether, however, they have no chance of winning a Graviball afterward from that specific Deenglow.
