The Raptor is a fiend in Final Fantasy X found along the Mushroom Rock Road. It has high Magic Defense and Evasion, so Tidus or Wakka's physical attacks work best. The Raptor's attacks sometimes cause Petrify or Silence.
Birds of prey, also known as raptors, hunt and feed on other animals. The term "raptor" is derived from the Latin word rapere (meaning to seize or take by force). These birds are characterized by keen vision that allows them to detect prey during flight and powerful talons and beaks.
The term "raptor" may also refer to a small dinosaur with the same characteristics as a bird of prey, such as the Velociraptor.
