Basilisks (バシリスク Bashirisuku, or バジリスク Bajirisuku) are recurring enemies from the series. They are giant horned lizards with bulging eyes, although in several recent installments they have become more Anacondaur-like in their appearances. Their common threat is their ability to Petrify characters using their stare, although there are often times when this status is their biggest weakness. The petrification usually is gradual (similar to Condemned is with Death), but in some games it happens instantly.

They are commonly in the same family as Catoblepas and Midgardsormr enemies.

Appearances

Final Fantasy

The Basilisk, also known as the Sauria in the NES version, is an enemy in the original Final Fantasy. They only appear later in the game, as a random encounter on an island in the dragon chain. Later, they appear in Chaos Shrine, where they are easy to defeat. The name "Sauria" means "Reptile" in Greek.


Final Fantasy II

The Basilisk is an enemy from Final Fantasy II. It can use the Gaze V move, which inflicts Petrify on one target.


Final Fantasy III

The Basilisk is an enemy from Final Fantasy III, fought on the small desert to the west of Kazus. Unlike the Basilisks encountered in other games, the one in Final Fantasy III does not cause Stone status with its Stare attack. Instead, it causes a character to Sleep.


Final Fantasy IV

Basilisks appear in the Antlion's Den. Although they cannot Petrify characters, their stronger relative, the Black Lizard, can.


Final Fantasy IV: The After Years

The Basilisk in Final Fantasy IV: The After Years does, unlike the basilisk in Final Fantasy IV, inflict Petrify with its Stone Gaze.


Final Fantasy VI

The Basilisk has high HP and can inflict Petrify with its Stone Gaze ability and can be fought on various islands in the World of Ruin. The Lizard, more cyan in color, is a palette swap fought as Serpent Trench in the World of Ruin.


Final Fantasy VII

Basilisks appear as Bagrisks in this game; its name is a simple mistranslation. Bagrisks can use Quake 2 and Petrify. They are fought in the Cosmo Area.

Final Fantasy VIII

The Anacondaur is an enemy from Final Fantasy VIII and attacks with Squeeze along with Poison Mist when its Hp runs low. Anacondaur can be found at Timber, Dollet, Deep Sea Research Center, and Esthar.

Final Fantasy IX

Basilisks in Final Fantasy IX have attacks that can deliver Petrify status to the player. They appear in groups in Burmecia.


Final Fantasy X

The Basilisk in Final Fantasy X is called a fiend. It has the ability to foist out Stone Breath and can be found on Djose Highroad.


Final Fantasy X-2

The Kukulcan in Final Fantasy X is called a fiend. It's nearly identical to the Basilisk in Final Fantasy X and can inflict Stony Glare attack.


Final Fantasy XII

Again, Basilisks have an Anacondaur-like appearance. They can be found in the southwestern parts of the Feywood and have the abilities Gnaw and Tail Spear.


Vagrant Story

The "Basilisk" in Vagrant Story takes on the appearance of a gray-blue lizard. It can be found at Snowfly Forest.


Final Fantasy Mystic Quest

The Basilisk from Final Fantasy Mystic Quest can be found at Bone Dungeon and has the abilities Claw and Fang. They are lizard-like in appearance and use two simple physical attacks. They are no danger to the player.


Etymology

The Basilisk is a fictional beast that appeared in Medieval bestiaries, it is said that a single gaze to their eyes would kill or petrify the observer. It was supposed to appear when a chicken's egg was hatched by a snake or a frog (hence their reptilian appearance).

Runescape

Up to date as of February 07, 2010

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

A Basilisk is a Slayer monster that requires a Slayer level of 40 to kill. Players must equip a mirror shield when fighting these monsters. Without the shield their stats dangerously reduced by the Basilisk's stare. In addition to stats being drained, they will constantly hit 11's on you without a miss. Basilisks attack with melee, so wearing good melee armour will ensure that the player takes minimal damage.

Shortly after the release of Summoning, the Fremennik Slayer Dungeon was almost always inundated with people seeking charms from the Basilisks. This area is not nearly as crowded these days, but it can still get quite busy at peak times.

Players with level 70 defence or above will not get hit very often, so less food is recommended to make room for drops. The spell Bones to peaches is highly recommended for lower levels or mage "pures". It is also possible to safe spot them from the south in the Fremennik Slayer Dungeon if you hug the eastern wall near the south entrance. (NOTE: You still need a mirror shield even if you kill Basilisks from a safe spot.)


Basilisks have a high slash defence and a low crush defence, it is recommended that the player does not use slash style and uses instead a weapon with crush style.

A player can obtain a baby basilisk as a pet, by taking a rare Basilisk head (stuffed or unstuffed) to Nomad or Zimberfizz (after Nomad's Requiem) in the Soul Wars lobby. Turning the head into the pet costs 40 zeal points. A Ring of Wealth does not increase the Basilisk head drop rate as it is an "extra drop" like a Clue Scroll.

Their attack speed is equal to that of a dagger.

Trivia

  • In the Fremennik Slayer Dungeon, there was a crevice that basilisks would walk over and subsequently appear to float above the ground. This has now been fixed.
  • When they defend, their rear right foot pivots on the floor unrealistically. This has not been fixed.

The Basilisk is the starship that IG-13 and his party own and use for their missions. The ship has been heavily modified by the droids. Several laser cannons and ion cannons have been added to the ship. Two fighter docks on either side of the ship were added to hold two droid operated uglies. These could slightly defend the ship against fighter attack, and could provide a small escort.
