Grendel is an enemy in Final Fantasy X found in the caverns in Mt. Gagazet and in the Zanarkand Ruins (not the Dome).

Grendel is an armored fiend, meaning weapons without the Piercing ability will do little damage. It uses Flame Ball that hits all party members for Fire damage, but it needs to charge for a turn before using it.


AI scriptEdit

Basic patternEdit

For the first four turns, it will use Charge, followed by Flame Ball, and again Charge then Flame Ball.

After that, it will act according to this pattern (same as Valaha):

  • Physical attack (67% chance).
  • Gore followed by Charge then Flame Ball the next two turns (33% chance).

Special patternEdit

  • Facing Valefor, it will only use the Charge then Flame Ball pattern.
  • Facing any other aeon, it will always use physical attacks.
  • While subjected to Provoke, it will use Flame Ball.
