Hornet has high Agility and Luck stats, in addition to being a flying enemy, so it can be quite difficult to hit. It has several dangerous attacks. Its normal attack may inflict Silence, Sleep, or Darkness with an 80% chance for three turns, and also has a high chance of an instant kill. Bewitching Stab inflicts Confuse, while Venomous Stab inflicts Poison on its victim. It can also use Curaga on itself.

Hornet drops weapons with Strength +% abilities and armor with Defense +% abilities, Strength +20% and Defense +20% being fixed abilities.


Lowering its Luck with the special ability Jinx will be helpful, as well as using Aim on the party. Casting Reflect on Hornet makes it unable to heal itself with Curaga.

Hornet is not immune to Silence attacks, but it will only work 5% of the time because of its Silence Resist.

While Hornet is not immune to Armor Break, it will only work 5% of the time. A Frag Grenade or Auron's Banishing Blade Overdrive work 100% of the time, and so are more effective to break its Full Break resistance.



Hornets are the largest eusocial wasps. Some species can reach up to 5.5 cm (2.2 in) in length. Most species make exposed nests in trees and shrubs, but some build their nests underground or in other cavities.
