The Mindflayer, also known as Mind Flare or Mind Mage, is an enemy in Final Fantasy V. Only appearing in the Interdimensional Rift, it is frequently seen with the Crystelle. Mindflayers will almost always counter any physical attack with the Blue Magic spell Mind Blast, which is, in fact, its special attack. Necromancers can learn Drain Touch by defeating it.

Mindflayers, or "Illithids," are a race found in Dungeons & Dragons. They appear humanoid, with heads that resemble octopuses, and frequently are found in the Underdark. They have fearsome psychic powers, subsist on a diet comprised of the brain tissue of sapient beings, and often enslave other races.
