Matamata is a genus of enemies in Final Fantasy XI.
Thickly wooded groves and tropical regions play host to these reptilian monstrosities, whose quaint moniker extenuates their ponderous size. They may seem like slow-moving creatures, but try telling that to the few pioneers who've survived the rapid succession of lashings dealt to them by a matamata tail. That's hardly their only weapon, however, as they can also expel internally boiled water at unbelievable velocities.
