The Mistodon is an undead enemy in Final Fantasy IX. It is a creature born of the Mist first encountered in the Iifa Tree when the party tracks Kuja down there. During the Battle of Alexandria the city is overrun with the creatures. They can also be found in various Mist-covered locations throughout the world during endgame.

The original Japanese name for Mistodon, Kiri no Majuu, literally translates to "mist demon". The English name may stem from "mastodon", an extinct relative of mammoths. The Greek word odont means "tooth".
