Wild Onion is a plant/mandragora-type enemy in Final Fantasy XII found in the Paramina Rift. Wild Onions are docile until attacked and will not become aggressive when others of their kind are attacked around them, unlike some other mandragoras. The player can rarely poach it into a Healing Rod.

Eight of them are also fought in the Zodiac versions' Trial Mode in Stage 25 alongside an Onion Queen.

Bestiary entry

Page 1: Observations

Thought to be a variant of mandragora, for the vines that reach up from its collar, covering its face like a mask. Notes the famed naturalist, Merlose: 'It weareth its skin in layers, much like to the root of similar name, perhaps for the proffering of protection 'gainst the cold. Men say the great gaping orifice on its face was gouged by a shard of ice born of a midsummer blizzard. Though its former mouth was passing small, befitting naught but low whimp'ring, its prodigious new one screameth full loud and full much as the foul beast could want, thence earning it its name.

There's plenty of work in the world. I don't know what it is you want to become, but take my advice: look at the tricks of many trades, and look well. If nothing else, the knowledge you gain will help you on your travels. And visit shops frequently: you'll find what you need sooner or later.

The onion, also known as the bulb onion or common onion, is used as a vegetable and is the most widely cultivated species of the genus Allium.

The adjective of onion refers to the Japanese metaphoric idiom of poverty, aptly named the "Onion Life", "peeling away one layer at a time and crying all the way". Alternatively, the term could come from the slang phrase "to know one's onions", meaning to be very versatile.


  • The Original Japanese Guidebook cites the Wild Onions' MP as being 1750–1762, but subsequent guides list it as 999.
