The Basilisk is a monstrous snake-like creature from the Harry Potter franchise.
The Basilisk is a huge serpent with greenish-gray scaly skin, venomous fangs as thin as sabers, and two huge yellow eyes.
Powers and Abilities
The Basilisk has an incredible lifespan, as she can live for centuries. Her venom is potent enough to kill a person in a little more than a minute. However, her yellow eyes are what makes her extremely dangerous, because she can instantly kill people who make direct eye contact with her.
The Basilisk is killed by Harry Potter, who fatally stabs her through the roof of her mouth with the sword of Gryffindor.
