Cross and Poi are a pair of termite border guards the team first encounter on their way to Termite Capitol after beating the Primal Weevil. They are later fought in the Termite Capitol's Colosseum as part of the Termite Kingdom's test of strength. True to his name he fights using a crossbow but is also capable of melee attacks. He along with Poi can be refought at the Colosseum or B.O.S.S.
Cross will spend most of his turn attacking, but can also eat a Succulent Platter to heal himself of he's hurt. Both of his attacks target a single bug. The bite deals more damage, but the crossbow shot has harder block timing.
Cross and Poi have decent Freeze resistance, but it still can be used with Status Booster and Frigid Coffin. Neither Cross nor Poi get bonuses from the other one getting KO'd, so you should focus fire one of them. On normal mode focus on Cross, on hard - either lower Cross' defense with Break or Heavy Toss, or focus on Poi while having Kabbu use Taunt. save as much HP and TP as you can, as you have another fight immediately after this one.
|Bestiary||Cross is a skilled but naive border guard, who always checks with his partner Poi for a second opinion. He uses a crossbow to complement his naturally close-range attacks.|
|Vi||"Whoa, that's a nice crossbow! Maybe I should try new weapons sometime...Tough bite, too. We can't give him a chance to use all his attacks!"|
|Kabbu||"I'm sorry, Cross. We never meant to drag you into this...Everyone, watch out for his crossbow. We must give them a worthy battle!"|
|Leif||"This one's got buff arms and fancy weapons. Deadly combo. Termites handle the cold well. Guess it's up to us if we want to gamble on it."|
- Succulent Platters used by Cross and Poi are weaker than the normal ones, as they can only target a single character.
