The Whole Eater is an enemy from Final Fantasy VII. It is encountered in the Sector 5 Slums and in Sector 6, both early locations in the game. They can also be fought in the second round of the Battle Square before the player obtains the Tiny Bronco. In the Battle Square they have enhanced stats with double the normal HP and Attack and Magic Attack increased by 25%.

It only has one attack, Sickle, which deals standard physical damage. It will use this attack on a randomly chosen target, however, it has a 1/8 chance of using his attack twice in one turn when its current HP is over 50% of its Max HP. Regardless of this fact, though, it is relatively easy to defeat with standard attacks or magic.
Outside of Battle Square it will always attack in groups up four (as a normal attack or a preemptive strike) or a group of three (as a ambush). In the Battle Square it appears in groups of two or beside to two Hedgehog Pies.
The damage from a Whole eater fills up limit gauges fairly quickly, making it a desirable enemy to fight when trying to develop the second limit break of a limit break level.
Whole Eater appears as an enemy in Pictlogica Final Fantasy.
