The Skink is an enemy from Final Fantasy X-2.
Fiend Tale Edit
- Will you listen to my tragic tale of cruel fate? I was born to a noble family, but here I am now in this hideous form. What a terrible curse to bear! Only one thing can lift this curse: the pure kiss of a lovely maiden. ...Why do you look at me so? Do you think I could make up such a story?
- And so, my dear Yuna! It shames me to no end to ask you this, but would you do me the honor of... ? Yes, your luscious lips will surely cure me! You refuse...? Not on my life...? I see that the high summoner is quite a hard nut to crack!
- Rikku, my lovely! A favor, if you will. I need you to help me return to my former self. You are the only one who can save me from this horrid nightmare! Go jump in a lake, you say...? Well, if not the lips, maybe a peck on the cheek? Just a little kiss is all I ask. Pretty please? Come on, just as a formality! Tch... I thought that momentum would carry...
- This is quite hard to ask, but I need your help with something. Oh, but there's no pressure. I won't hold it against you if you refuse. It's just a small favor, really... Uh, Lady Paine, are you listening? Hm? You'll beat the curse out of me? Agh, no! I've never been good with violence! Hmph! Not like you're my type, anyway.
A notable Skink appeared to be a nobleman afflicted with a curse. A maiden's kiss is needed to restore his humanity. After Yuna, Rikku, and Paine turn him down, Skink left the Gullwings to find anyone who can kiss him. Eventually, after a series of misadventures, Skink resigns to his fate until he was suddenly kissed by Shinra and his humanity restored soon after.
They are average in difficulty, as they can inflict Poison with their attacks. Normal physical attacks work well against it, as do Ice-elemental attacks. They can appear solo, with other enemies, or in groups of two.
