An oglop.

I hate oglops!!!

Adelbert Steiner

The oglop (ブリ虫, Burimushi?) is an insect in the world of Gaia in Final Fantasy IX. They are generally considered pests and can appear in large gatherings.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Oglops are yellow beetles with large eyes. Uncommon to insects, they have eyes akin to mammals' with eye lids and pupils and have four legs rather than six. A regular oglop is large enough to fit onto a person's palm. Many are repulsed by oglops, one of the things which Princess Garnet has to learn when she tries to conceal herself as a commoner while in the village of Dali. She spots an oglop on the old woman's farm and holds it. When the woman seems perplexed by the idea of a girl liking oglops, Garnet screams and tosses the insect away in an attempt to blend in better.

A smaller oglop.

Oglop oil is a popular medicine on the market. A female Red Mage, visiting the city for the Festival of the Hunt, considered buying some as a souvenir, but then deems it too disgusting. In Conde Petie, seasoned oglop is considered a delicacy, at least by the dwarf Bryan Rootrunner, who laments oglops only being found on the mountain path.

Story[edit | edit source]

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

The Tantalus Theater Troupe uses oglops to distract Steiner and the crowd by letting a bag of them loose in the Prima Vista's engine room while they are kidnapping Princess Garnet. Blank has the oglops concealed within his suit of armor, but during the battle with Steiner his armor is blown off, and the oglops begin jumping everywhere sending Steiner screaming and running around in a panic.

Cid Fabool IX as an oglop.

The Regent of Lindblum, Cid Fabool IX, was turned into an oglop by his wife Hilda as an act of revenge for his infidelity. Despite retaining some human characteristics, Cid cannot keep working on his airship projects, blaming the loss of creative drive to his transformation. Zidane tries to help Cid return to his human form by procuring three specific potions, but this only turns Cid into a frog. Later on, in a bid to save Eiko from Kuja in Mount Gulug, the party rescues Hilda who turns Cid back into a human.

Spoilers end here.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Eiko the cook[edit | edit source]

During Eiko's cooking sequence in Madain Sari, the player has the option to add an oglop in the stew. If they do, however, the dinner will be spoiled as Eiko's dinner guests are disgusted at the discovery of having eaten an oglop. The oglop for the stew must be caught from Conde Petie Mountain Path, where oglops congregate but are a bit tricky to catch.
