Battle[edit | edit source]

The Mono Drive uses its first turn to state either "Enemy Sighted!" or "Warning! Warning!". It is then supposed to use its Drilldrive to attack intruders that are in the front row and Fire spells on back row targets. However, due to a bug in the AI script, the Mono Drive attacks the front and back row indiscriminately. It randomly judges party members' Defense or Magic Defense and will attack the one who has the lowest in either of these stats, with Drilldrive for the first case and Fire in second. If it ever runs out of MP, the Mono Drive will use only Drilldrive.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Mono Drive has low HP, and therefore can be simply dispatched with one Attack. One should prioritize attacking them as their Fire spell deals more damage than most other early-game enemy attacks.

AI script[edit | edit source]
