The Griffin is a flying enemy from Final Fantasy IX. It can be found in Fossil Roo and on the Donna Plains on the Outer Continent. A Griffin can also be fought as part of a side event in Treno's weapon shop during the time Dagger and Steiner come to town with Marcus. It has the same stats as regular Griffins, but no Experience, gil or items will be rewarded. During this time, the best way to defeat it is to get Steiner's Blood Sword from the Stellazzio quest and simply equip on him.

The Griffin is susceptible to Quina's LV4 Holy.
