Deathgaze (デスゲイズ, Desugeizu?), also known as Death Gaze, Doom Gaze, Deathguise and Grim Gaze, is a recurring boss in the Final Fantasy series. It usually appears as a flying winged creature with skeletal features. Its attacks and abilities vary highly between each appearance, but it usually has a large repertoire of magical and physical attacks. Also, as the name suggests, it often has access to an instant death ability, like Death, Kill, and Level 5 Death. Though it always fights for evil, its motives are never explained.

Deathgaze is an enemy in the data of Final Fantasy Dimensions. There have been no reports of it appearing in any version, and therefore it is one of only a few enemies with a set of stats dummied from all versions of the game.
Although the specifics of its data are unknown, the fact it has assigned data is revealed as its name can be found in the files, unlike numerous other dummied enemy sprites which do not have an associated name.
Deathgaze is a summon that casts Level 5 Death, which causes a Bravery Break to the opponent if his Bravery value is a multiple of five. The artwork used for the summon is from Final Fantasy IX. Deathgaze can be obtained as a Stage Bonus on the Destiny Odyssey VI storyline.
Natural enemy of any airship, Deathgaze resides in the skies and appears just as unexpectedly as it disappears. It attacks airships without provocation and toys with its victims before departing with a sneer.
