Dissidia Final Fantasy Summon Compendium

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.
