Sentient flora found in Squaresoft's 1997 Final Fantasy VII Sony Playstation video game. Said title was also later ported to the PC. They can be randomly encountered in the countryside around Kalm and the Chocobo Farm--in groups of four, or two in the company of an Elfadunk and Levrikon. The enemies Mandragora and Razorweed share the same polygon model, but differ in color/capabilities (recycling enemies is a common programming practice).
Basically just a malicious tuft of grass that uprooted itself, the Mandragora is more annoying than dangerous. It can physically attack or perform an odd little jig that can induce the Slow status effect on one character. Curiously, Mandragoras will not attack until you provoke them by striking first.
These monsters are ranked at Level 10 and have 120 hit points (HP). You'll earn 55 experience points (EXP), 6 ability points (AP), and $135 in Gil for every Mandragora that you slay. You might also find a Lasan Nut (used in Chocobo breeding) item drop reward after the battle (or you can just steal one from them during the fight if you prefer).
Mandragoras are immune to all status effects and have no elemental strengths/weaknesses.

Unknown; this figure's creation occured before I started keeping thorough records of my work (which means it was made sometime prior to May 30, 2004).
For comparison purposes, below is an image of a Mandragora that I cobbled together from the polygon model's individual segments. I used the FFVII 3D Model Viewer program, programmed by "makuchan", as well as the Microsoft Paint and GIMP art programs to do this (the Mandragora polygon model is file 'ENEMY079.LZS' on the game disc(s) if you're interested).
