The Chive is an enemy in Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-.
It is the strongest in its family of enemies. Not to mention its high HP, this tiny grass-like foe is also capable of draining Zack's AP, SP, or even HP. A repeated Costly Punch, along with Aerial Drain will work here. The Aerial Drain may not inflict as much damage as Assault Twister+, but it will help to maintain Zack's HP. If the player does not have Aerial Drain, and wishes to avoid attacks, Energy is effective as it can hit multiple times.
Chives is the common name of Allium schoenoprasum, the smallest species of the edible onion genus. The name of the species derives from the Greek skhoínos (sedge) and práson (leek). Its English name, chives, derives from the French word cive, from cepa, the Latin word for onion. Chives are a commonly used herb.
