The Hippogriff is an enemy from Final Fantasy VII encountered on the world map in the Mideel Area. It can fly to become a long-range enemy and increase its Evade. It uses L2 Confu only in its first turn, confusing any party member whose level is multiple of 2.

Despite the similar name, the ability ??? should not be confused with ????, an Enemy Skill. This ability will only be used on the ground after Hippogriff has been in the air once. It switches to its flying form after receiving a physical attack when it has under 50% of its max HP. It returns to the ground if hit with a magic attack.
