The Prokaryote, also known as the Procyote, Procaryote, or Stardust, is an enemy from Final Fantasy IV. Their attacks may inflict Poison, and they often appear in pairs with their relative, the Eukaryote. They are not very threatening after the party reaches level 50 - 60, though they can be a bit tough on the first visit. Leviathan is more than enough to wipe them out.
[view·edit·purge]A Prokaryotic cell is a type that lacks a membrane-enclosed nucleus as well as other clearly disparate cellular structures. They do not have mitochondria to drive energy production via oxidative phosphorylation and generate energy by fermenting simple sugars or small molecules such as methane or ammonia. They are considered a more primitive classification in biology than eukaryotes that do have membrane-bound organelles and genetic material encapsulated by the nucleolus. Prokaryotes include two domains of life: Bacteria and the Archaea.
