Zolokalter's battle AI is unusual in that after being physically struck, it will use Toxic Barf on any unit on the battlefield, including its allies. This can be useful in eliminating them, if the player can manipulate its victims. It will also use its Bite attack on any poisoned unit, including its allies and itself. Since Toxic Barf is certain to cause Poison and Slow, it will destroy its own party as a result.

It can be defeated with physical attacks or magic, aside from Bio attacks, which the Zolokalter absorbs. Enemy Skills such as Aqualung will destroy large groups of them.

This enemy's name is likely intended to be a portmanteau of "Zoroastrianism" and "Kartir".

Zoroastrianism, known more natively as Mazdayasna, is one of the world's oldest monotheistic religions. It was founded by the Prophet Zoroaster in ancient Iran approximately 3500 years ago.

Kartir Hangirpe (alternatively, Karder or Kerdir) was a highly influential Zoroastrian high-priest of the late 3rd century CE who served as advisor to at least three Sassanid emperors.
