Nidhogg is an enemy in Final Fantasy X found in the Cavern of the Stolen Fayth and in Mt. Gagazet. It has high power and uses a Fire-based magic attack called Flame Breath, which hits all allies. It has a thick, scaly hide, so it is best to use Auron and Kimahri's piercing weapons. Nidhoggs have a 50% chance of prioritizing physical attacks on Yuna, or the party member with the lowest HP if she isn't present. Against aeons, they use their Breath attack half of the time, or always against Valefor. When Provoked, they use an attack with reduced accuracy.

Nidhogg will drop weapons with any of the elemental strikes and armor with Slow Ward. In the original version, they drop weapons with Strength +3% and Magic +3% instead of Distill Power.
