BattleEdit

Acrophies's attacks are not all that powerful by the time the party encounters it, and it does not have a large amount of HP. The main reason for battling this unusual-looking foe is the opportunity to steal a relatively rare and valuable Water Ring.

A back attack landed on Acrophies will deal eight-times normal damage, as opposed to the regular twice normal damage. This is for the benefit of the Acrophies, however, since its Huge Tidal Wave will hit the back of Acrophies, who will then absorb the water-elemental damage eightfold.

Acrophies has in its arsenal one of the rarest abilities in the game, the Isogin Smog ability. This inflicts the Darkness status to the entire player party, but will only be used by Acrophies if the entire party is already under the Darkness status. Warning! If Acrophies uses this attack more than once, it might crash the player's game.

Since Acrophies has no other abilities that induce the Darkness status, the Ink item will have to be used on all party members to see this attack naturally.

EtymologyEdit

Acropora is a genus of small polyp stony coral in the phylum Cnidaria. Some of its species are known as table coral, elkhorn coral, and staghorn coral.

One possible localization of the enemy's name is "Acrophis", which would be a portmanteau of "acropora" and "ophis". Óphis (Greek: ὄφις) is Greek for "serpent". This would be appropriate given its snake arm.
