A staple of That One Boss, this is a particular attack in an enemy's arsenal which is significantly more dangerous than most of its attacks. If you have a party, it will almost always target all party members, and it often takes off the majority of your HP, causes seriously debilitating status effects, or both. This attack showing up even once is always bad news; if the A.I. Roulette gives you two in a row, expect to see the Game Over screen. Whether or not you can beat That One Boss that uses this attack usually depends entirely on whether not you can avoid/endure/recover from it.

Seen It a Million Times; here are the examples I can think of:
