PlayStation Bestiary entry

The Alacran, also known as the Areneid, is an enemy in Final Fantasy VI.



Alacrans are stronger than most monsters early in the game when going to Figaro Castle because of their Numb attack that inflicts Stop, the number of them that are usually faced, and Locke and Terra being the only party members. However, as it is still early in the game, they are not very powerful and should be defeated with normal attacks fairly quickly.
