Battle[edit | edit source]

Crown Lance only uses Claw when in the frontmost row. Furthermore, it only uses Sleepel and Bolt when not in the frontmost row. Its Sleepel ability may inflict Sleep on one character. Its most dangerous attack, Deadly Needles, is only used as a 100% counter-attack if it has Advanced to the front and has below 220 HP. This attack always inflicts Petrify.

They have very low HP for the point of the game they are found; Matra Magic and fire spells can wipe them out easily. Advance and Retreat can be used by Crown Lances to switch rows, although only the Crown Lance in the Back Row is able to Retreat and Advance.
