BattleEdit

Gremlin gets angry as it is attacked and depending of it HP it uses Fure (51-75% HP) or Fury 2 (50% or below) animations, but mostly just uses its physical attack; rarely it will use an attack called Bad Mouth, which always inflicts a character with Sadness. With its low HP, it is not dangerous.

For the English PS1 classics re-release on the PlayStation Network the attack Bad Mouth was removed, most likely due to the characters during the attack being foul language. A mistake during the editing of the code makes the Gremlin not attack at all in many cases.

StrategyEdit

A simple way of defeating them is to cast L4 Suicide, then use a physical attack.

EtymologyEdit

A gremlin is an imaginary creature commonly depicted as mischievous and mechanically oriented, with a specific interest in aircraft. Gremlins' mischievous natures are similar to those of English folkloric imps. They became more well-known thanks to the famous 1984 film of the same name, which depicts gremlins as the main antagonists.
