The Wild Saurian is a dragon/tyrant-type enemy in Final Fantasy XII. It appears on the Dalmasca Estersand in the Stepping and the areas north of the Nebra River. Its name is written simply as "Saurian" when encountered in the Stepping.
Bestiary entry Edit
Page 1: Observations Edit
Once lords of the land together with the other wyrmkin; a war with the gods dwindled their numbers to a mere fraction of their former glory. This great creature possesses sharp teeth in its sizable maw by which it catches and rends the flesh of its prey, and grand tail, the latter being used for balance as it strides upon two powerfully appointed hind legs.
Page 2: Mysteries of the Ancients Edit
One of the singular problems in clearing new land is, surprisingly enough, the removal of monstrous bones, the being far more resistant to wear, and far heavier, than those of men. The worst of these by far are the tyrant bones. Though they too will erode over the ages, their weight and strength are most uncommon, and even the hottest flame will leave no mark upon them. To expect anything less from such a bone would be to forget the awesome might of the tyrant from whence it came.

The Wild Saurian is dangerous at low levels, but it will not attack unless provoked. The Wild Saurians north of the Nebra, however, are not docile and will attack on sight and are meant to be fought when the party heads to Archades. In the Stepping, it can use Cannibalize on the Wolves to increase its stats.
Wild Saurian is one of the few enemies that can reach a level of 99. It does this with the help of the player, who lures nearby Wolves around the area towards Wild Saurian, which will occasionally perform Cannibalize on them. Doing this without disturbing the Wild Saurian, the player can then test their mettle against a 9,999 HP damage-inflicting monster with a hide nigh impenetrable, unless the player uses the high tier guns.
