Grrgoyles are the embodiment of human fear, given the shape of sinister statues.


The grrrgoyle is a tall, purple devilish demon with a darkly mocking visage, stoney statue-like skin and pointy tattered wings across it's big back. It tears at enemies with terrible talons and dashes foes hope of dealing damage with a dazzling flash. The grrrgoyle with flutter around and do the Fuddle Dance, confusing party members into messing up and mashing team mates or falling flat on their face. Later appearances give it the ability to ice enemies with Kacrack, increase their Tension, let out a shrieking cry, paralyze enemies with a Smirk, and lower an enemy's Tension.
