Normal: "A violent fiend that attacks indiscriminately no matter what the odds. It inflicts Curse on its opponents with Curse Fang. How depressing." Oversoul: "Even more violent in its oversouled state. It can now attack five times in a row. Jumping chocobos!" — Scan
The Canis Major is an enemy in Final Fantasy X-2. It is a fairly easy enemy with low Defense and Magic Defense. Use either magic or physical attacks to bring it down.
In the Fiend Tale endings, a notable Canis Major was originally aloof until he was befriended by Shinra who turned the lone wolf into an excitable and playful puppy. Eventually, using a game as a distraction, Shinra runs off so Canis Major can live freely.
