Final Fantasy Compendium

Tonberry

The rather spooky Tonberry is one of the most recognizable FF mainstays. The effect of its signature attack tends to vary, but it always wears brown cloth robes, carries a lantern, and uses a "chef's knife". It tends to have a lot of HP and gradually creeps toward the characters until it's close enough to instantly kill one or all of them. In FF6 and FF9 they appear in triplets and use Pearl/Holy a lot. FF6 and FF7 have a Master Tonberry who has a star over its head and twice the difficulty! It usually gives great items as a reward, though. In FF8, if you collect twenty Chef's Knives and defeat the King Tonberry which appears in the Centra Ruins, you can call Tonberry in battle as a GF! FF10 and FFX-2 boast even larger and far nastier versions, such as the Don Tonberry. In FF11, Tonberries were actually once subjects of an ancient kingdom. In a vast war, culminating in a magic explosion, they were slowly turned into Tonberry form.

The various enemy Tonberries use their signature Chef's Knife, Karma, and Everyone's Grudge, and include giant versions a la FFX-2's Mega Tonberry. They can also be summoned via DMW, where a Tonberry trips over a rock while attacking Zack, and his knife slams into the enemy.
