Mandragora (マンドラゴラ, Mandoragora?) is a recurring enemy in the Final Fantasy series that has appeared as a summon, and is always plant-like in appearance. They've been appearing since Final Fantasy VII, though their recurring charismatic appearance originated in Final Fantasy XI. The Mandragoras' sizes range from relatively diminutive to gigantic depending on the game.
