Glacial Eye is an enemy in Final Fantasy VIII, known in the Japanese version as Gaze Eye. It is fought on the plains of Balamb, being a good source of Blizzard spells at the beginning of the game. During the Balamb Garden Revolt event, Glacial Eyes are fought inside the Garden and one, accompanied by a Bomb, is summoned by the Garden Faculty at the quad.

Battle[edit | edit source]

Petrify Stare.

The Glacial Eye is a flying monster capable of neutralizing and using Ice attacks, and is weak against Fire. When 75% of its HP is depleted, it may use Vampire to suck HP out of targeted member and restore same amount of HP to itself.

At medium and high levels, it may petrify its opponents with its Petrify Stare. Also uses Reflect on itself and Silence on a party member, both as a counter-attack against magical attacks.

This enemy is useful for stocking up on magic.

Glacial Eye can be carded into Jumbo Cactuar cards, which are powerful for early playthroughs.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Summoning Ifrit will destroy it. Using Ifrit's Elem-Atk-J and junctioning fire spells to a character's physical attack dispatches it even faster.
