The Red Flan is an enemy in the Dawn of Souls and succeeding remakes of the original Final Fantasy, meant to resemble the Flanes Rojos from Final Fantasy X-2. The Ooze enemy in the NES version originally had a red coloring, however its name was changed to Ochre Jelly and made yellow.
The Red Flan is a relatively rare enemy, found in the deepest levels (B21 onwards) of the Whisperwind Cove in the levels resembling Mount Gulg, the Cavern of Earth, and in the level resembling the Overworld. Like most of the Flan clan, the Red Flan's Defense stat renders physical attacks useless. It is the strongest Flan, but a group of them can be defeated easily with a Blizzara or Firaga spell.
