The Scythe Mantis is an insect/mantis-type enemy from Final Fantasy XII found in the Zertinan Caverns.

Bestiary Entry Edit

Page 1: Observations Edit

Being a variety of mantis with purple and blue coloration, feared for its aggressive nature, and the sharp sickle-like claws with which it rends and dismembers foes. Their claws are made from an incredibly hard metallic substance, serving both as weapons and as shields against enemies' attacks. Its celadon stripes shift hues with the light, making the woven patterns seem to float above the surface of the creature's carapace.

Page 2: On Being Fashionable Edit

With the exception of the elegant fabrics worn by the very wealthy, giving new life to old garments is the order of the day. Why, even the tattered garments worn by a man the day before he died would find a buyer at market. That is why we must always wash our clothes with great diligence. After all, you never who might be wearing them tomorrow.

Battle Edit

The Scythe Mantis is one of the most challenging normal enemies in the Zertinan Caverns. In addition to its high HP, they are difficult to isolate as they appear closely grouped and will often come running to each other's aid. They can use Cannibalize to devour each other, healing themselves and increasing their stats.

Etymology Edit

[view  · edit  · purge]Mantises is an order of insects that contains over 2,400 species and about 430 genera in 15 families worldwide in temperate and tropical habitats. Most are in the family Mantidae. A common name, often applied to any species in the order, is "praying mantis" due to the typical "prayer-like" posture with folded fore-limbs, although the eggcorn "preying mantis" is sometimes used in reference to their predatory habits. In Europe and other regions, however, the name "praying mantis" refers to only a single species, Mantis religiosa.
