Final Fantasy Wiki

Lefty is an enemy from Final Fantasy VIII. It appears as a huge hand protruding from the ground, often accompanying Righty and Vysage.




Lefty will attempt to draw stocked magic from party members and will cast it immediately. At higher levels, Lefty will sometimes heal its company if they are afflicted with status abnormalities. It resists most GF attacks, often taking three or more summons to defeat.

Lefty 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 Grat, Vysage, Righty, Cactuar, Tonberry, Esthar Soldier (Terminator), UFO? and PuPu. It also cannot be carded.
