Ahriman (Final Fantasy III)
There is no escaping this evil eye. Once you have met its fearsome gaze, you will never be alone again. Even now I feel the loathsome eye on me. Always it is on me. Where is it? Where is it? Oh, sweet gods...!
Theatrhythm Final Fantasy description.

Ahriman (アーリマン, Āriman?), also known as Veteran, Allemagne, or Evil Eye is a recurring enemy from the Final Fantasy series. They are often among the strongest enemies of the game, though lesser varieties of them exist that are much weaker. Ahrimans are usually depicted as round yellow creatures with green or purple wings, large fang-filled mouths, thin tails, and a single large eye. They attack with Death spells and similar Instant Death attacks like Petrify, Roulette and Doom. Other varieties of Ahriman are the Flying Eye and similarly named Floating Eye, and the Plague Horror.

Trivia Edit

  • A Ghost Card in Dissidia Final Fantasy is named Ahriman, and bears the Player Icon of the Ahriman from Final Fantasy III. The Ahriman card is a Level 52 Cloud of Darkness that has the Purple Gem and Gnomish Bread to be won through Battlegen. The quote on the card, "None shall be able to stop it! You will never leave this place alive" is paraphrasing of what the Ahriman in Final Fantasy III says to the party before attacking.
