The Spider is considered a lesser bug, and is incapable of coherent speech. During the course of Chapter 1, he attacks Vi and Kabbu in two separate (cutscene-like) fights, and a final fight at the end of the chapter with the full party.
Battle Information[edit | edit source]
Spider is battled three times over the course of Chapter 1.
Encounter 1[edit | edit source]
In the first battle, Kabbu is alone as Vi had retreated from the encounter. Spider is scripted to use his bite attack on the first turn, and then he will hang from a web and use his poison spit on the second turn.
Kabbu must survive two turns of attacks before the battle ends automatically.
Encounter 2[edit | edit source]
In the second battle, Kabbu and Vi must destroy the Web behind Spider that contains Leif. Once the Web is destroyed, the battle ends automatically.
In both of these encounters, Spider cannot be harmed, as he has 99 defense and 999 HP. He also cannot be Spied in these encounters.
Encounter 3[edit | edit source]
In the third encounter, the team has become stronger and has Leif as well, allowing them to defeat it.
Spider will attack twice every round from the start of the battle. When he reaches half of its health, he will summon an Inichas in front of him and a Jellyshroom behind him. He will break out of any movement impeding status effects as he does this. Additionally, his Poison Spit attack will fire twice instead of once.
Using one of his turns, Spider can hang from the ceiling using a web, making him airborne.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
