The Meonekton is a recruitable enemy in Final Fantasy XIII-2. They are uncommon and appear along with their smaller allies, the Nekton.

Paradigm PackEdit

Meonekton is a Commando, and its development is slightly weighted towards Strength. Its stat development is largely linear overall, but its stats at its maximum level are low, even for an Early Peaker. If one is not caught before defeating Atlas in Bresha Ruins 005 AF, a Gate Seal must be used in order to obtain one.

A nekton is a subcategory of ocean-dwelling creatures capable of free movement independent of water currents, as opposed to plankton, which cannot. This includes vertebrates such as fish, molluscs such as squid, and crustaceans such as crabs or lobsters. 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, referring to their origins in the Void Beyond.

Meonekton's Japanese name is "Meiobenthos". Meiobenthos, also called meiofauna, are small benthic invertebrates that live in both marine and fresh water environments. The term "meiobenthos" was first coined in 1942 by Mare, but organisms that would fit into the meiofauna category have been studied since the 18th century. A good comprehensive text on meiofauna is Introduction to the study of meiofauna by Higgins and Thiel (1988).
