Heehahaheehee.
—Elnoyle

Elnoyle is an enemy in Final Fantasy VIII. Its appearance is similar to the boss Elvoret, except for the dull brown coloration.

EncounteringEdit

EstharElnoyle

Elnoyle's location in Disc 3 Esthar.

When Esthar City is flooded with monsters after the Lunar Cry, to the north of Odine's Lab there is a black figure sitting at the farthest point, who will laugh "Heehahaheehee" when the player tries to strike a conversation. The fight commences immediately after that, and the player cannot escape the battle. This can be repeated as many times as the player wishes by leaving the screen and returning.

Energy CrystalsEdit

Elnoyle is an important enemy because it drops Energy Crystals needed to remodel Quistis's and Rinoa's ultimate weapons. Plus, they can be refined into Pulse Ammo needed for the Lion Heart, Squall's best weapon, and for Irvine's Shot Limit Break. Energy Crystals can also be refined into Ultima.

StatsEdit

StrategyEdit

Elnoyles are weak against Death, and junctioning a hundred of them to status attack has a chance of killing an Elnoyle in a single hit. Without the Death strategy, the battles can be quite annoying because Elnoyle often counterattacks with a physical attack. It also casts powerful magic and uses its Tail Needle attack on occasion. It is also susceptible to Degenerator.

EtymologyEdit

Elnoyle is derived from "aile noire", which in French means "black wing", pertaining to it near black wings.

TriviaEdit

  • In the Japanese version of the game, Elnoyle's HP formula is 3.25(Lv)^2 + 965(Lv) + 30000.
