Although this is a test model, don't underestimate its power. Attacks with Tek Laser and Schiller.
When with other enemies, it uses Magitek Laser or its special, Program 35, every turn. However, when alone or when attacked with a normal attack, it has a 33% chance to use Launcher, greatly reducing the HP of the party. Like most enemies in the Magitek Research Facility, it also has high Defense. Thunder and Thundara spells make quick work of it. Inflicting Silence on it prevents it from using Magitek Laser, Launcher, and Scintillation. Edgar's Bioblaster/Flash and Sabin's Rising Phoenix also work well.
If Proto Armor is by itself:
- Launcher (33%) or Scintillation (33%) or Magitek Laser (33%)
1st Turn: Magitek Laser (66%) or Program 35 (33%)
If attacked by "Attack": Launcher (33%) or Scintillation (33%)
Proto Armor from Final Fantasy VI appears as an enemy in Final Fantasy Record Keeper.
Proto- is an English prefix meaning "first".
