Eyeball with wings and a nasty gaze attack.
Floateye in Final Fantasy Tactics Advance is a blue spherical monster that can cause various status effects with its single eye. It has a pair of wings to fly over other units on the battlefield. Although its mobility and Speed scores are high, it is a fragile creature. Floateye is related to the Ahriman monster.
Its Stare ability is learnable as Blue Magic, and it is easy to learn due to how Stare works. This process can be sped up by having a Beastmaster command a Floateye to use Stare. Stare is an effective method of inflicting confusion, as it can be 100% accurate, and it also has an area effect in front of the user.
Morphers can use Floateye abilities alongside Ahriman abilities, since Floateyes are capturable. This gives players access to Devil Gaze, which operates on the same principles as Stare, where it only works when the user faces the enemy, but it does so with 100% accuracy. Devil Gaze inflicts both Blind and Silence, which disables any unit for a period of time, or encourages an enemy to heal themselves. The Floateye has no damaging abilities, but they do provide great status effects, especially with Ahriman abilities.
