The Mantis Devil, also known as the BlMantis, is an enemy from Final Fantasy II. Effectively, this monster does possess demon-like qualities, having an elemental affinity for Fire, while not developing a weakness to Ice. The Mantis Devil's most powerful attack is a Fire XVI spell, concentrated upon one party member, often leaving characters with low Magic Resistance in jeopardy.



Mantises is an order of insects that contains over 2,400 species and about 430 genera in 15 families worldwide in temperate and tropical habitats. Most are in the family Mantidae. A common name, often applied to any species in the order, is "praying mantis" due to the typical "prayer-like" posture with folded fore-limbs, although the eggcorn "preying mantis" is sometimes used in reference to their predatory habits. In Europe and other regions, however, the name "praying mantis" refers to only a single species, Mantis religiosa.

The Devil is believed in many religions, myths and cultures to be a supernatural entity that is the personification of evil and the enemy of God and humankind.
