The Roper is an enemy from Final Fantasy III, fought in the Cave of Tides. It drops some powerful attack items, so fighting it is very worthwhile. Ropers appear very often, so collecting these items is relatively simple. They may Paralyze with their normal attacks, can deal heavy damage to all allies, and are especially dangerous to a party that is less than level 16. Physical hits is the best way to deal with them, but using Thunder from the Light Staff helps as well.
