Freybug is a monstrous Black Dog from medieval English folklore, specifically from Norfolk. Like most supernatural black dogs, it was roughly the size of a calf, and wandered country roads terrifying travelers. The name "Freybug" is reportedly mentioned in an English manuscript from 1555.

The name has been reused in Final Fantasy XI. [1] [2]
