Pteryx has Auto Regen. Being a flying enemy, Pteryx will evade most normal attacks, unless the character has a high Accuracy stat. Its normal Beak attack inflicts Delay (strong); and the special Beak of Woe can hit one or all party members. This last attack ignores the Protect status and will cause Curse.

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


Pteryx can be easily defeated using Wakka's Attack Reels at low levels due to its minimal HP. Celestial weapons are not necessary. Although by using Celestial Weapons, defeating Pteryx is much easier, as the damage limit is broken and so therefore Pteryx can be defeated easily in a small number of normal attacks.

While Pteryx is not immune to Armor Break, it will only work 10% 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.



Pteryx is Greek for "wing". Pteryx is also a genus of beetles in the family Ptiliidae.
