Caterchipillar is an enemy from Final Fantasy VIII. It is an insect-type enemy and one of the first the player is likely to meet as they roam outside Balamb Garden. During the Balamb Garden Revolt event, Caterchipillars appear within the Garden building and one is summoned by a Garden Faculty at the dorm if the player tries to enter while having declared they are aligned with Headmaster Cid.

Its head is small and red located below its "stinger", while the "mouth" appears to be in the tail.

StatsEdit

Battle Edit

Caterchipillars tend to team up with Bite Bugs. Its Ultra Waves attack can inflict Berserk on party members along with some non-elemental magic damage.

They lack strength, but like to embed their opponents in a Sticky Web to varying effect. Caterchipillar lv20-lv29 can inflict Slow to one opponent with Sticky Web, while Caterchipillars lv30+ can inflict Stop.

The Spider Web they drop teaches Quistis a new Blue Magic spell.

StrategyEdit

The player can draw Fire from a Bite Bug and cast it on the Caterchipillar for double damage, although draw-casting magic tends to be weaker than magic cast with the Magic command. After getting Ifrit, the party can summon him and use his Elem-Atk-J to deal elemental damage to opponents,
