FFVII wiki icon

Mandragora is an enemy in Final Fantasy VII. They attack in groups and will not attack the party until they attack them. Once a Mandragora is attacked, all Mandragoras will attack the party. They use Grass Punch as counterattack when receiving magical attacks on the character who has the lowest current MP. They use Slow Dance as counterattack when receiving physical attacks which inflicts always the Slow status ailment on the character with the lowest current HP.

They are not a threat and their HP is low enough that they can easily be dispatched. It is not a good idea to attack with magic as they have a notoriously high resistance to it and it does very weak damage. Physical attacks will defeat them quickly enough. Lasan Nuts, needed to breed chocobos, can be stolen from them.

Mandragora is a plant belonging to the nightshade family. According to legends surrounding witchcraft, when mandragoras (Mandrake plants) are uprooted, they emit a piercing scream which kills all who hear it.
