|Final Fantasy Enemy|
The Deepeyes, or BigEYE in the Nintendo Entertainment System version, is an enemy in the original Final Fantasy. Like its weaker orange sibling, the Deepeyes likes to use the Gaze move, which Paralyzes a party member. It can also use Flash, which attempts to inflict Blind on the whole party. The Deepeyes is quite a rare enemy in the Sunken Shrine, however it gives a large amount of EXP and gil.
Like virtually all enemies in the original Final Fantasy, the Deepeyes are a reference to Dungeons and Dragons. There, the enemy was known as an Eye of the Deep, and it was an amphibious relative of the Beholder with a paralyzing gaze.
