The Basilisk, also known as the SAURIA in the NES version, is an enemy in the original Final Fantasy. They only appear later in the game, as a random encounter on the Cardia Islands, a chain most associated with dragons. Basilisks appear on the island that contains Bahamut's throne. Later, they appear in Chaos Shrine, where they are easy to defeat.

Strategy Edit

Physical attacks are the primary way to defeat these enemies; magic can be saved for the more difficult encounters in the Chaos Shrine. Due to their average Defense, they are not hard to defeat. Basilisks possess the ability to use Gaze to Petrify party members, but they also drop Gold Needles upon defeat.

Etymology Edit

The Basilisk is a fictional beast that appeared in medieval bestiaries, it is said that a single gaze to their eyes would kill or petrify the observer. It was supposed to appear when a chicken's egg was hatched by a snake or a frog (hence their reptilian appearance).

In the NES version, the Basilisk was called Sauria. Sauria derives from saura, which means "reptile" in Greek.
