Battle[edit | edit source]

Nereid is the Ice-elemental member of the trio. Its attacks are all Ice-elemental, including Frost, Ice Storm, and the spell Blizzaga.

Similar to the Gargoyles, Triton, Nereid, and Phobos must be eliminated simultaneously as failure to do so will cause them to revive and retort with Delta Attack.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The battle can be won easily by using Odin. The Magic Lamp can even be recharged nearby. Otherwise, the three can be easily defeated by repeated use of the Bard's Requiem and multi-target attacks such as summons, though one should only use water, wind, or non-elemental attacks to ensure that all three fall together.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

In Greek mythology, the Nereids are sea nymphs (female spirits of sea waters), the fifty daughters of Nereus and Doris, sisters to Nerites. They were distinct from the mermaid-like Sirens. They often accompany Poseidon and can be friendly and helpful to sailors fighting perilous storms.

The enemy's Japanese name is a katakana form of "Nereid" (ネレイド, Nereido?) with a (ge?) in the middle. This may be to make its name similar to the English word "renegade" (レネゲイド, renegeido?).
