The Catoblepas is an enemy in Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. It is dangerous because it uses Glare on the entire party to inflict Confusion. It is advisable to use Slow on him and kill him quickly. Avoid using magic-based attacks, including summons, as it can counter with the Break spell to inflict Petrify on a party member.

Etymology Edit

Catoblepas (from the Greek expression καταβλέπω katablépō meaning "to look downwards") is a legendary creature from Ethiopia, described first by Pliny the Elder and later by Claudius Aelianus. It is said to have the body of a buffalo and the head of a wild boar. Its back has scales that protect the beast, and its head is always pointing downwards due to its head being heavy. Its stare or breath could either turn people into stone, or kill them.
