Battle Edit

Clymenus often attacks in groups and casts Fira often. If it has the Reflect status, then it will either cast Fire, Fira, or Firaga on itself; if any character in the party has the Reflect status then it will cast Cura, Haste, or Reflect on them. It is weak against Holy-elemental damage.

Coliseum setup Edit

Bet Fixed Dice for Burning Fist

A Reflect Ring can nullify most of Clymenus's offense, as can Fire-resistant/absorbing equipment.

In Greek mythology, Clymenus (Greek: Κλύμενος Klúmenos "notorious") refers to multiple individuals.
