Battle Edit

The Type A is the weakest of the three types of black mage enemies, but its magic is still relatively strong against the party at the point in the game they are fought. It is vulnerable to the Silence, which can be inflicted if the Add Status ability is used with the Mage Masher, or Soul Blade with the Butterfly Sword. Add Status only works with daggers and not with thief swords, and Soul Blade only works with thief swords and not daggers. As Type A is humanoid, Man Eater from the Coral Ring will double the damage from the character's physical attack.

Etymology Edit

The word Type followed by a number is a common way to name a weapon or product in a production series, similar in meaning to "Mark". "Type" was used by the Japanese and Chinese militaries beginning in the 1920s, and is still in use by the Chinese military.
