The Stalagmite, also known as the Boulder, is an enemy from Final Fantasy III. It is found in the Subterranean Lake. It counters attacks with Stare and appears to be a palette swap of Carbuncle. They are dangerous, due to their ability to petrify party members via Stare AND their physical attacks, so it is highly recommended to try and defeat them in one hit if possible. If not, the player should stock up on Gold Needles prior to traversing the dungeon. Stare will only be used 35% of the time, and the enemy drops Gold Needles to remedy their Petrifying abilities.
