World Map - Jidoor and Narshe continents ( World of Ruin)
Its special attack, Stone Gaze, can
Petrify a party member, but otherwise it is an unremarkable enemy. As with most enemies in the wild in the World of Ruin, it is weak to Ice, so Blizzara and Blizzaga spells are very effective. The Basilisk drops Tortoise Shields, part of the Imp equipment set.
The Basilisk can be encountered on the World Map anywhere on the
Jidoor or Narshe continents, but only on the grassy areas. It always appears in pairs, alongside a single Leap Frog.

Etymology Edit 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).
