The Tonberry is a species of monster and a specific monster in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift. A common sight in the Final Fantasy series, Tonberry are malicious hooded creatures who wield both knife and lantern.
Though they are small in stature and their move rating is low, they have the power to wipe out a foe in a single move. The dangerous Karma skill returns, as does the equally deadly Voodoo. Tonberries will often use Stalk on a unit it intends to finish off with Voodoo, but this can be remedied by blocking off that ally with other units or having the pursued unit flee to the edges of the battlefield.
The knife of this hooded creature gleams with the hatred of its dead brethren for the living.

A garish crown rests atop the head of this purple-skinned creature. Its lamp swings mournfully in time with its silent footfalls.
