The Chelicerata is an enemy in Final Fantasy XIII-2. It appears with Clione as a group.

Paradigm PackEdit

The Chelicerata is a Saboteur. It possesses high Magic, and learns the valuable Improved Debuffing II late in its development. Debuffing reduces enemy's defenses (Deprotect, Deshell, Imperil, Poison. Debrave and Defaith are only available with Tezcatlipoca's Feral Link) as opposed to Debilitation. which negates enemy actions (Pain, Fog, Curse. Daze is unavailable and Slow, only in the Nekton's Feral Link). It is one of the few sources of Deshellga and Deprotega for infusion. Chelicerata is expensive to raise to maximum level. Its Feral Link Deathscythe does physical damage, and it has high strength to base that on. Deathscythe also does wound damage; wounding is unusual for a debuff in that multiple applications are effective, and it is a valuable skill against enemies that heal themselves.

Like all Vermin type monsters, it is Biological. It uses 24 Grade two (Sliver) monster materials to get to level 15, 32 grade three (Orbs) to level 30, 63 grade 4 (Essences) to level 45, and 179 grade 5 (Crystal) monster materials to its final level of 99.

Chelicerata will often make the list of the top three or four best Saboteurs. Black Chocobo is typically listed alone as the best. Necrosis, second most mentioned, has a logistical disadvantage: it is the only infusion source of the tactically powerful Resilience +40%. Dendrobium gives access to six status ailments, the others five, and like Necrosis its Feral Link poisons, so it is also in the running.

Chelicerata are a subgroup of the phylum Arthropoda, and includes creatures such as scorpions and the horseshoe crab. They are among some of the oldest surviving creatures from pre-cambrian times. Like all enemies of the Rift Beast class, the name is derived from a real class of living organism that also form part of an ancient clade of the evolutionary tree, referencing their origins in the Void Beyond.
