FFT

A soft-bodied monster covered in slime. Although humanoid in appearance, it has no skeleton.
—Description

Mindflayers are a genus of monster in Final Fantasy Tactics that resemble robed squids. Their primary races, such as the Piscodaemon, are relatively weak, but the higher classes pack powerful spells that can turn the player's party against each other. They have the ability to absorb Water-based attacks, but are weak to Lightning-based attacks.

Ranks Edit

FFT-enemy-Mindflare
Rank III

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.

Piscodemons are demons from Dungeons & Dragons.
