Medusa appears as an enemy exclusive to the Game Boy Advance release.
Medusa is a Lamia Hyper Notorious Monster from the Final Fantasy XI: Treasures of Aht Urhgan expansion (one of the Aht Urhgan Beastmen Kings). She makes appearances in both high level Besieged events (allied with the Undead Swarm) as well as randomly in the field in the Arrapago Reef. As one might expect, she is notorious for causing the Petrification status ailment in high frequency. Her loot pool, along with the other two Aht Urhgan Beastmen Kings, more or less lacks anything of monetary or combative significance whatsoever. Killing her in the field, however, is important to those interested in creating a Mythic Weapon, as the title granted upon her death to players involved is necessary to advance the Mythic Weapon quest line. In addition, her death in the field will also temporarily prevent her participation in Besieged.

Medusa was one of the three Gorgons, a beautiful sea nymph who fell in love with the god of the sea, Poseidon. She was transformed into a hideous monster by Athena, with a head of snakes and a stare that would petrify any who saw it. She was slain by Perseus, and her head given to Athena to place on her shield.
