The Mindflayer, also known as Mind Flare or Mind Mage, is an enemy in Final Fantasy V. Only appearing in the Interdimensional Rift, it is frequently seen with the Crystelle. Mindflayers will almost always counter any physical attack with the Blue Magic spell Mind Blast, which is, in fact, its special attack. Necromancers can learn Drain Touch by defeating it.

Etymology Edit

Mindflayers, or "Illithids," are a race found in Dungeons & Dragons. They appear humanoid, with heads resembling those of octopodes, but hail from a strange dimension called the Far Realm. They have fearsome psychic powers, and often enslave other races. They are based on the ancient god Cthulhu, from the stories of H. P. Lovecraft.
