Belostosses usually attack by slamming a character with their arms. They can also lift a boulder out of the ground, throwing it at a single party member for large damage on their next turn. Hitting it with a flipping attack, like Kabbu's horn, while it's holding a boulder will make it drop it, preventing the attack. On Hard Mode, they will throw the first boulder they lift, as well as each boulder after successfully throwing 3 boulders, on the same turn as they lift it.
Focus fire them one at the time, taking out any enemies in front of them beforehand. Because of their high defense, it's recommended that you lower it with something like Break and Turn Relay to Kabbu often. If one of them is holding a boulder and you won't be able to reach them with Kabbu this turn, hit it with Hurricane Toss or, if you have it, Under Strike.
|Bestiary||This extra large bug boasts impressive size and strength due to a mix of ruthless evolution and a really good diet. It's aggressive and territorial, grabbing anything near it and lobbing it towards others. Towns are wary whenever one is spotted outside of their usual caves, as the collateral damage they can cause is humongous.|
|Vi||"...Y'all wouldn't consider just running from this one, right? I know it's no Spider, but...-?! Whoa! It's got a giant rock! Kabbu, hurry up and hit it!"|
|Kabbu||"Holy Smoked Shrooms...! It can carry such weight with ease! Yet, I can feel its balance is shaky... I will try to knock the rock out of its hands!"|
|Leif||"Whoa! That rock nearly splatted us... Haven't you heard of saying "hello"? No response. Guess there's no point trying to negotiate, then... Time to freeze it."|
