The Gorgonopsid is an enemy in Final Fantasy XIII-2. It will begin the fight by using War Cry, bestowing Bravery and Vigilance on itself. Its attacks are powerful and it has high HP for the area in which it is first encountered, but it can be defeated without too much trouble.


Paradigm Pack

The Gorgonopsid is a Commando. A Late Bloomer, it learns a wide variety of abilities during the course of its development, most notably Poison Chaser.

Its development for all its stats is exponential, and therefore rises very slowly until it passes level 80. It also requires many monster materials to develop.
