Its most deadly ability is Stone Gaze, which petrifies a party member. Its physical attack is weak. It is usually accompanied by Funguars.

Basilisks will not use Stone Gaze if only one character is active. If multiple characters are active, Basilisk will always use Stone Gaze on its first turn; however, in a battle with multiple Basilisks, this only applies to the first one to get a turn.

Basilisk is one of the few monsters from which Kimahri can learn his Ronso Rage techniques, in this case, it is Stone Breath.


As Funguars that often accompany it cast Fire, a strategy that the party can employ is to summon Ifrit as he is healed by Fire-elemental attacks and is immune to petrification. An alternative is to use Blizzara or Blizzaga, as Ice does the most damage compared to the other elements.



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).
