The Mandragora is an enemy from Final Fantasy IX. It can be found on the Alexandria Plateau, forests in Bentini Heights, the forest near the Mist Continent's Chocobo's Forest on King Ed Plains, and Edgecry Coast on the Mist Continent.

Because of its higher exp and money (due to appearing in multiples) compares to other monsters in the area, the Mandragora makes a good level grinding monster for those who wish to exploit Marcus/Eiko stat bug.

Stats[edit | edit source]

Battle[edit | edit source]

Mandragora is likely to be the first monster the player encounters which Quina can learn Limit Glove from.

Its Chestnut attack deals damage equivalent to its maximum HP–current HP to a single target, which can be dangerous when the party is at lower levels. Shriek simply inflicts Silence. Lastly, it can cast Blizzara.

Its weakness against Fire can be exploited for more damage.
