Avizzard is an enemy type from Final Fantasy Mystic Quest. Avizzards appear as winged creatures wielding twin blades. They can be found in the Lava Dome. They have higher HP than other enemies and are not weak to any attack types the player has, so they can be a minor nuisance, especially since they also have status attacks.
Avizzard is known as "Gargoyle" in the Japanese release. Gargoyles were initially ordinary stone statues built on rooftops to let rainwater above flow down to the ground through certain paths. The statues were usually carved as monsters and strange creatures, which later spawned the belief that gargoyles are the guardians of the buildings they live in.
- The number for Avizzard's HP is 666, this number is called "number of the beast" in most manuscripts of chapter 13 of the Book of Revelation, of the New Testament, and thus also in popular culture. In modern popular culture, 666 has become one of the most widely recognized symbols for the Antichrist or, alternatively, the Devil.
