Possibly inspired by H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos, the MindFlayer looks like a wizard with a squid for a face, and uses strong black magic. In FF4, it could be summoned using the dropped "Mind" item. Its attack, "Mindblast", has never been verified as to its true effects, but usually include Confusion.

CP: Being one of a Race of Beings evolved from the lowly Amorph. Possessed of great Intellect compared its common ilk, it attacks by manipulating Thought with its indomitable Will. It is far eviler than its ancestors, and Proud of its superior Nature, loving above all Else the sight of other sentient Beings in Pain. The Garif have sworn Enmity toward the Mindflayers, and one of them posted a Bill for this Mark.
