Final Fantasy

Up to date as of February 01, 2010

From Final Fantasy Wiki

Medusa is a reccurring enemy in the Final Fantasy series. She is modeled, generally, off of her namesake in Greek mythology. Characters going against Medusa, in most of the games in which she appears, can look forward to attacks that cause petrification.

Final Fantasy XI

Medusa is a Hyper Notorious Monster from the Final Fantasy XI Treasures of Aht Urhgan Expansion (one of the Aht Urhgan Beastmen Kings). She makes appearances in both high level Besieged events (allianced to the Undead Swarm) as well as randomly in the field in the Arrapago Reef. As one might expect, she is notorious for causing the Petrification status ailment in high frequency. Her loot pool, along with the other two Aht Urhgan Beastmen Kings, more or less lacks anything of monetary or combative significance whatsoever. Killing her in the field, however, is important to those interested in creating a Mythic Weapon, as the title granted upon her death to players involved is necessary to advance the Mythic Weapon quest line. In addition, her death in the field will also temporarily prevent her participation in Besieged.

Final Fantasy Mystic Quest

Main article: Medusa (Final Fantasy Mystic Quest)

Medusa appears as a minor boss that Benjamin and Reuben must defeat in order to enter the Lava Dome.

Etymology

Medusa was one of the three Gorgons, a beautiful sea nymph who fell in love with the god of the sea, Poseidon. She was transformed into a hideous monster by Athena, with a head of snakes and a stare that would petrify any who saw it. She was slain by Perseus, and her head given to Athena to place on her shield.

Lostpedia

Up to date as of February 07, 2010
(Redirected to Medusa spider article)

From Lostpedia

Dr. Arzt holds a Medusa spider. ("Exposé")
A specimen freely traverses the Island. ("Exposé")

The Medusa spider (Latrodectus regina) is a dangerous species of spider found on the Island.

Dr. Arzt showed Nikki a female Medusa spider in a jar, one of more than 20 species of insects and arachnids he had collected since crashing on the Island. He explained to her that the Medusa spider was very dangerous and that the female's pheromones were so powerful that, if the jar was opened, every male on the Island would be drawn to her in seconds. When Nikki learned that Paulo has recovered their stolen diamonds without telling her, she used the live Medusa spider specimen to attack him. After Paulo was bitten, she revealed to him that the venom of the Medusa spider wouldn't kill him, but would cause paralysis lasting for approximately 8 hours, so profound that even a doctor wouldn't be able to hear his heartbeat. ("Exposé")

Arzt's information about the pheromones was proven correct when multiple male Medusa spiders appeared in the grove following Nikki's release of the female Medusa spider from the jar. Nikki was bitten too, and both Nikki and Paulo subsequently died after being buried alive while paralyzed, having been mistaken for dead by their fellow Oceanic Flight 815 survivors.

Trivia

  • The NYC taxi cab sound effect associated with the Monster can be heard just before Nikki is bitten by the other spiders. In the March 21, 2008 edition of the Official Lost Podcast, Damon says the Medusa spiders were a form of the Monster.
  • In "Tropical Depression" Arzt is seen catching spiders, as well.
  • The Medusa spider is a fictional species.
  • Arzt refers to his Medusa spider as Latrodectus regina, which would make it a member of the widow spider genus.
  • "Medusa" in Greek and "regina" in Latin both translate to "queen."
  • "Medusa" could also reference a creature of Greek mythology: a snake-haired Gorgon which could turn people to stone upon eye contact.
  • The "males" are also females, as the real males are much smaller. Argiope appensa was introduced in Hawaii and is a very common there. It's natural range is in Taiwan and New Guinea.
  • A featurette about the real-world spider handlers used for the filming of Lost is an easter egg in the deleted scenes section of the Lost: The Complete Third Season (DVD).

Affiliation

Darth Sinity

Medusa was the second flagship of Darth Sinity. One of only three Aries-class Star Dreadnought ever built, Medusa was a symbol of death and suffering to any who opposed it. It was one of the largest ships in the Galaxy, both in history and at the time. Medusa was a highly modified version of the Aries-class, sporting 3 extra tractor beam generators, a modified cloaking device, and up to 50 extra lasercannon and proton torpedo turrets. It was at the forefront of every major attack waged by Sinity in his quest for Galactic domination (Sinity maintained 3 major fleets, each of them led by an Aries-class Star Dreadnought, one of which was Medusa). Medusa led the flagship fleet of Sinity's regime, Black Fleet.

Behind the scenes

  • Medusa is reported to be 21 km in length, outsizing both Executor-class Star Dreadnoughts (19 km) and Eclipse-class Star Dreadnoughts (17.5 km). This means that it is the second largest ship in Galactic history, next to Juggernaut, a Colosuss-class Star Dreadnought (32 km).
  • Medusa was possibly chosen as the name of the ship because of two reasons: first, in Greek Mythology, Medusa had the power to turn her enemies into stone. This may reflect the effect the ship had on its enemies in battle. Second, Medusa may only have been chosen because it coincides with the theme of all ships related to Darth Sinity (Olympus-class, Pantheon-class, Manticore)

Sounds: "You will make sssuch a fine ssstatue!"; "There isss no chhhanccce of essscape"; "Are you tired or why are you moving thhat ssslow <chuckle>"; "Jussst look at me!".
Behavior: Runs away at low health(around 600), changes targets very often. They sometimes deal deadly combos almost as dangerous as a demon. They have the ability to kill a level 80 knight with one strong combo. Soloing below 150 is possible but not recommended as they usually appear with many other Medusa, Hydras and Serpent Spawns.
Field Notes: Medusa is a mythological creature who could transform people, who looked directly into her eyes, into a statue. (See also: Medusa in Wikipedia), they deal deadly combos and can hit almost as hard as a demon.
Location: Vandura Mountain (single spawn), Talahu (Medusa Cave), Deeper Banuta
Strategy: For all vocations, if you are solo heal after every hit because they paralise up to 5 times in 5 seconds and if you paralised will be hard to move diagonal and avoid their wave.

Druids and Sorcerers can solo these independently on HP above level 150 as long as stay diagonal, away from the terra wave. Depending on where you are, be careful of running into multiple monsters, such as in Deeper Banuta, where it's very easy to run into Serpent Spawns, Hydras, and Bone Beasts at the same time. Druids should use Energy Strike or Sudden Death. Sorcerers should use a Wand of Starstorm or Wand of Cosmic Energy and Energy Strike if you're trying to be conservative. If not, it is recommended to kill them quickly with Energy Wave or Great Energy Beam, with a blocker.

Knights At level 150+, Medusa can be solod by knights if you're careful. The best strategy is to always remain diagonal to them, and to combine your melee with Berserk while spamming Light Healing and healing with an Ultimate Health Potion if you get too low. When they run in red hp, it is best to use Whirlwind Throw and to try to get them to run in a direction opposite to where other monsters are since they usually spawn with Serpent Spawns and Hydras. If you're hunting with a team of mages or paladins, be ready to use Challenge often, since they tend to retarget quite a lot.

Paladins should kill them as quickly as possible however you can, and it's recommended that you use a blocker, since running them is dangerous in places like Banuta, and difficult since they paralyze often.
Loot: 0-150 gp, 0-2 Platinum Coins, 0-3 Small Emeralds, 0-2 Ultimate Health Potions, 0-2 Great Mana Potions, White Pearl, Strand of Medusa Hair, Terra Amulet (semi-rare), Medusa Shield (semi-rare), Knight Armor (semi-rare), Sacred Tree Amulet (rare), Titan Axe (rare), Rusty Armor (Rare) (very rare), Terra Mantle (very rare), Terra Legs (very rare).

Transformers

Up to date as of February 05, 2010

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

Medusa is an alien in the Transformers in 3D portion of the Generation One continuity family.
Is she Golobulus' long-lost sister?

Medusa is the female member of the Destructons. Armed with huge forearm-mounted spikes, the tail of her snake-like body, and devastating "Medusa Beams", she is every bit as much the force of destruction as her comrades.
