A Wendigo is an enemy in Final Fantasy VIII. It is a headless, ape-like monster that attacks swiftly with basketball-like moves. Wendigos appear in forests around Timber area and atop plateaus in Galbadia (accessible only on Ragnarok). They have the rare Steel Pipe item to mug, needed to acquire the Guardian Force Doomtrain.

StatsEdit

BattleEdit

Wendigos use only physical attacks, some of which are quite powerful and can hurt the entire party at once.

StrategyEdit

Because they only use physical attacks, blinding them helps, and they are also susceptible to Sleep. The player can draw-cast Protect to cut the damage taken from its attacks to half.

EtymologyEdit

In Algonquian mythology, a wendigo is a cannibalistic spirit that would possess humans and force them to consume human flesh. In alternate legends, the wendigo would possess its victim during their first cannibalistic experience. Wendigos are strongly associated with winter, where starvation was common.
