Dark Aspic is an enemy in Final Fantasy V. It is able to use Vampire on a target, draining their HP. Dark Aspics typically manifest in pairs or groups as large as six. Though highly resistant to physical hits (but not enough to negate damage entirely) they can be destroyed with a single Flame Scroll or other group-effect, Fire-based attack. A blue mage with level 5 doom also works very well against these enemies.
Aspic is a clear, savory jelly usually made of stock and gelatin and used as a glaze or garnish or to make a mold of meat, fish, or vegetables.
