Triffid is an enemy in Final Fantasy XIII. They appear as large flowers on the field, but come out when one draws near. They are weak against Wind and Fire-elemental attacks and use status attacks on the player party. They are not difficult enemies, when appearing with other monsters, it is best to kill the Triffids first.
Triffid is the name of a fictional venomous plant in John Wyndham's novel The Day of the Triffids.
