Demon Wall (デモンズウォール, Demonzu Wōru?), also known as EvilWall and Demons Gate, is a recurring boss in the Final Fantasy series. It is usually depicted as a large, demonic monster encased in a giant slab of stone. Mostly set as traps in tombs and temples, Demon Walls often utilize attacks that cause Petrify and slowly move towards the player party with the intent of crushing them into the wall parallel to it, giving the player a time limit to defeat it.
