トンベリ [tonberry] in Japanese. Tonberries have green skin and yellow eyes, and are rather short. They wear brown robes of a coarse fabric and usually carry a lantern and a knife. Their tail often has a dolphin-like fin.

While tonberries aren't exactly mindless beasts, it would be hard to call them a sentient race either. They seem to fall somewhere between, and fit the 'beastman' moniker quite well. Their origin in most games is unknown, although in Final Fantasy XI they're known to be mutated Kuluu, come to this stage due to the Meltdown some 10,000 years in the past, and in Final Fantasy XIV are inhabitants of the ancient nation of Nym who fell sick with an unknown disease, some 5,000 years ago.
