Deepeye (ディープアイ, Dīpuai?), also known as Deepeyes and BigEYE, is a recurring enemy in the series. They first appeared in the first Final Fantasy, inspired by the "Eyes of the Deep" from Dungeons & Dragons; though from Final Fantasy VI onwards, they acquire a new and original design for this franchise.
Deepeyes is an enemy fought at the Sunken Shrine. It prefers to attack with the Paralysis-inducing Gaze ability in addition to using Flash to inflict Blind on the party. They are otherwise not difficult foes to defeat.
Deepeyes are the basis family of a weak voidsent found most commonly in the Coerthas Western Highlands, introduced in Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward and based on their Final Fantasy VI appearance. The Deepeye enemies themselves can be found in the Riversmeet area.
