Mimic Spiders are enemies that appears in Forsaken Lands. In overworld, they walk on two legs so that they look like an ant rather than a lesser bug, and this can confuse players who have recently reached this place. In battle, they appear as a monstrous spider as their battle stance.
They usually attack by biting, which will put the targeted bug to Sleep on a failed block. More rarely, they'll spit multiple globs of poison, targeting a random bug each time and Poisoning them on a failed block.
With relatively high HP in comparison to other enemies at the same time and the ability to stun the party members, it's recommended to take out all the Mimic Spiders in the battle as soon as possible. Chompy can be helpful too if obtained.
Spy Log Edit
|Bestiary||These Spiders roam around the Forsaken Lands looking for innocent travelers to snack on. Being able to stand upright, they can mimic the way other bugs like Ants move, even using their front legs as fake antennae.Their sedating saliva can be a real pain in the neck.|
|Vi||"Hiya-AAAAAAHH!!! Huff...Huff... Heck this. You're going DOWN! As if you could put us to sleep after that scare!"|
|Kabbu||"Greetings, fellow Ant. What brings you to thi-...?! BY THE BLESSED STATUE OF THE GODDESS VENUS!!! You cursed fiend! How dare you spook me so!? I shall strike you down!"|
|Leif||"This beast's quite aggressive. Its attacks seem to have numbing properties, so......? Vi! Kabbu! Stop freaking out and assist us!"|
- Leif's Spy suggests that Mimic Spiders actually has numbing properties while they sedate their opponents instead. The similar thing happened to Numbnails in the v0.4 demo when Kabbu said it has numbing attacks.
- In Cave of Trials, Mimic Spiders use their disguise animations before the battle begins.
