Final Fantasy Wiki

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



An ogre is a mythical creature found in West European folklore. 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).
