The Ogre Mage, also known as the WzOGRE in the NES version, is an enemy in the original Final Fantasy. Ogre Mages are accomplished spell casters, and often begin a battle by casting Blink on themselves to increase their Evasion. They can also cast Dark, Sleep, Hold, and Blizzara. Ogre Mages also have a permanent regenerative ability, which restores a minimal amount of their health. When they appear in the Cavern of Earth, they are often grouped with one or two other Ogres or Ogre Chiefs.


Etymology Edit

An ogre is a mythical creature found in West European fairy tales. Ogres are typically depicted as large, mean-spirited, humanoid monsters that prefer to feed on human beings.

In Dungeons & Dragons, Ogre Mages are also called Japanese ogres (or oni).
