Chive is the strongest enemy in its family in Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-. It has high HP and can drain the player's AP, SP, and HP. Costly Punch and Aerial Drain work well, and though the Aerial Drain may not inflict as much damage as Assault Twister+, it will help to maintain the player's HP. If the player does not have Aerial Drain, and wishes to avoid attacks, Energy is effective as it can hit multiple times.
Chives is the common name of Allium schoenoprasum, the smallest species of the edible onion genus. The name of the species derives from the Greek skhoínos (sedge) and práson (leek). Its English name, chives, derives from the French word cive, from cepa, the Latin word for onion. Chives are a commonly used herb.
