FFVIII wiki icon

Torama is an enemy in Final Fantasy VIII fought on the Great Plains of Esthar after the Lunar Cry.


Battle Edit

A leopard-like creature with tentacles instead of whiskers, Torama uses magic attacks at first, but becomes aggressive when low in HP. It can be a dangerous enemy when the party is at level 100 because they often start battles with Lv5 Death, ending the game instantly if the party has no Death resistance.


Summoning Carbuncle protects the party from most of Torama's attacks, apart from Meteor.

Etymology Edit

Tora and ma are the Japanese words for tiger and demon respectively.

In the Japanese version this enemy is called Coeurl. The coeurl is a fictional alien race created by science-fiction writer A. E. van Vogt. Coeurls also appear in other fantastical environments, such as in Dungeons & Dragons (as "Displacer Beasts"). Coeurls are generally described to be feline with longer forelimbs and tentacles.

Trivia Edit

  • In the original Japanese version of the game, Torama's HP formula is $ 1.5(Lv)^2 + 230(Lv) $.
