The Myrmecoleon, also known as the Milmecoreo, is an enemy from Final Fantasy III. It is found in the Molten Cave. This monster seems to be an aquatic version of the mythical Basilisk, as the emphasis on petrification in the loot table and damage table may suggest. It is therefore highly suggested to bring along plenty of Softs when traversing the dungeon in order to cure Petrify quickly, and to attack it using Ice-elemental attacks in the NES version.

Myrmecoleon is a legendary creature from Medieval bestiaries. It is a Chimera, half ant, half lion. It is said that because the lion part craves meat and the ant part craves grain, the Myrmcoleon will starve.
