FFVIII wiki icon

Grat is an enemy in Final Fantasy VIII. It is a weak enemy found in Balamb Garden's training center and in Ultimecia Castle. It is a plant that uses status attacks, and is among the few random encounters to be immune to ejecting attacks. It also appeared in the PC version demo.


Battle Edit

Grat uses Vampire in any turn, and its Gastric Juices poisons the player. This attack is physical and can be avoided with high evasion and luck. The chance of it casting Gastric Juice as well as inflict Poison increases as the player levels. Sleeping Gas is used sometimes as counterattack if Grat is physically or magically attacked, and this may inflict Sleep on all party members.

Grat is a good source of Sleep and Silence magic early in the game. They are weak to Ice and Fire.

Grat is one of the few non-boss monsters that is unaffected by Quistis's Degenerator Limit Break, Selphie's Rapture and Odin never appears against it. The others are Vysage, Lefty, Righty, Cactuar, Tonberry, Esthar Soldier (Terminator), UFO? and PuPu.
