NAME ORIGIN
    Mega is a metric prefix denoting one million, in contrast to the Giga Parasite enemy. The word derives from the Greek megas meaning "great". A parasite is an organism that grows, feeds and is sheltered on or in a different organism while contributing nothing to the survival of its host. The word comes from the Greek parasitos meaning "person who eats at someone else's table".
    In Final Fantasy Origins, this enemy was named Lifesucker. This was due to its use of the Drain spell, which literally sucks life (HP) from the victim.
