Final Fantasy Wiki

Vysage is an enemy in Final Fantasy VIII. It is a face emerging from the ground and is sometimes seen with Lefty and Righty. The Gargantua fight begins with a Vysage fight. It is notable for its item farming potential on the Shenand Hills.




Vysage's Stare is a status-inflicting attack on a party member inflicting Confuse, Silence, Poison, or Darkness. Sigh attacks all party members. Two other attacks are done only when Lefty and Righty are present: a physical attack on a target, and Curse, inflicting Doom to a target.

Vysage is one of the few non-boss monsters that is unaffected by Quistis's Degenerator Limit Break and Selphie's Rapture, and Odin never appears against it. The others are Grat, Lefty, Righty, Cactuar, Tonberry, Esthar Soldier (Terminator), UFO? and PuPu. It also cannot be carded, along with Lefty and Righty, though it does drop its card.

Every encounter at Shenand Hills includes Vysage, Lefty, and Righty.


The player can junction Zombie to ST-Atk-J for two party members and have the third use recovery/revive magic/item to kill the enemies instantaneously; although Lefty is immune to Zombie, it is weak to physical attacks.

Item farming[]

Shenand Hills is the most efficient place to mug Lightweights from Vysage and Life Rings from Lefty. The Lightweights can be used to refine into Hastes, and 100 of them refines into an Accelerator for Auto-Haste. Every encounter yields 12 AP and around 700–1000 experience.

Triple Triad[]


Vysage is a Level 4 Triple Triad card used for playing the minigame and turning into Wizard Stone with Quezacotl's Card Mod. The card depicts Vysage with Lefty and Righty.
