Poi and Cross 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. Poi mainly focuses on sword strikes and leaves the ranged combat for Cross, although he does have a few cannon attacks up his sleeve.
Both of Poi's attacks target a single character. He can either slash with his sword or use the cannon on his head to fire poison. His poison shots are some of the fastest projectiles in the game, making them potentially hard to block. He can also raise his or Cross' stats with berries or heal himself with Succulent Platters.
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||Poi is a disciplined border guard who follows the law to the letter. He makes sure to keep his partner Cross on track. He uses a sword to complement his naturally long-range attacks.|
|Vi||"This guy's bonkers... He's got a cannon on his head! We just have to show them we're a much stronger team!"|
|Kabbu||"Our apologies, Poi. We know you're just doing your job. Everyone, watch out for his sword and cannon! We must fight with honor!"|
|Leif||"Tough luck, getting sent to fight us as part of the job. The head cannon and sword are a nasty combo... We can't let our guard down. 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.
- Poi's Berries are also weaker than the normal versions, lasting only one turn.
