Battle[edit | edit source]

It is a relatively powerful enemy when first encountered, and can be avoided. Later on it is of no threat. It uses Lightning spells and inflicts the party with Poison and Itchy.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

A quick way to dispose a Drowsy Ochu is to use Fire-elemental spells and Flametongue. Using Light Curtains helps mitigate the damage it can do with its physical attack. Equipping Lightning-resistant equipment helps neutralize its Thundara and Thundaga spells, while having Poison-resistant abilities nullifies its Poison abilities.

Fiend Tale[edit | edit source]

One notable Drowsy Ochu slept for a year. During his research on it, Shinra learns the Drowsy Ochu has a reoccurring dream of relaxing in the Calm Lands before being shot down by Yevon monks.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

"Ochu" comes from Dungeons & Dragons; specifically, it is the otyugh. The name in Japanese (and transliterations) comes from the pronunciation; it is pronounced with a short O and T (practically to a ch), making the pronunciation close to "o-chuugh". "オチュー" is the closest the katakana system can get to representing the sound without using compound katakana pronunciations not natively found in Japanese.
