The Stroper is a stone enemy from Final Fantasy IX. The party can fight it in the Iifa Tree. Use of a Soft can make it "Too soft to live" and instantly kill it. If no Softs are available to use, the party may steal a Soft from it to use on it, or use the White Magic spell Stona to defeat it. Otherwise, use Fira and other Fire-elemental attacks to deal with it. Keep the party's HP up above half, as its Sweep attack deals heavy damage to everyone.
