Mantidflies are a flying enemy encountered in the Far Grasslands. Though bearing a similarity to Wasps, Mantidflies are unrelated dwelling Lesser Bugs (though that does not stop others from mistaking them as seen in its Spy Data).
They're unique among regular enemies for always taking two actions per turn, on Hard Mode. They have a variety of attacks, from swiping with their claws to a flying lunge. Their pile driver attack can be escaped with a successful action command, the attack itself can still be blocked on failure of escaping it.
Resembling Wasps more than Mantids, yet unrelated to both, these fast hunters surprise explorers with their intelligence. Their appetite demands they hunt for food, pillaging anything they can. To prevent being confused with them, Wasps have a unique salute while scouting the Far Grasslands.
On your guard, everyone! We are under attack by a Wasp Scout! Vi, you must force it to land on the ground. I can defeat it then!
T-the Wasps found us! ...Oh what? What bug is this? Well, whatever. It's just another enemy I've gotta smack to the ground!
Did they really fall for this disguise? Those two... That aside, this enemy's got quite the varied skillset. We'll have to watch out while we block.
