The Earth Medusa, also known as the GrMEDUSA, is an enemy from the original Final Fantasy. It is found in the areas of Flying Fortress and Chaos Shrine. It is highly recommended to bring lots of Gold Needles to avoid the party from being completely Petrified from the Earth Medusa's Glance ability. They are extremely dangerous when fought in multiples, so it is advised to quickly dispatch of them as fast as possible.

In the original Japanese Famicom version the Earth Medusa was topless. This was later censored during the American localization process.

Etymology Edit

In Greek mythology Medusa was a monster, a Gorgon, generally described as having the face of a hideous human female with living venomous snakes in place of hair. Gazing directly upon her would turn onlookers to stone.
