Etymology Edit

Oceanus was a pseudo-geographical feature in classical antiquity, believed by the ancient Greeks and Romans to be the divine personification of the World Ocean, an enormous river encircling the world.

The enemy's SNES name was Latimeria. Latimeria is a rare genus of fish that includes two extant species: the West Indian Ocean and Indonesian coelacanths. They follow the oldest known living lineage of Sarcopterygii (lobe-finned fish and tetrapods).

Trivia Edit

  • A single Oceanus can pincer attack the player's party. Almost all monster formations for single enemies have the pincer attacks disabled in the data, or have a forced front, back, or side attack, but Oceanus was one of the two enemies who slipped through, resulting in a pincer attack glitch. This bug was fixed for the European Game Boy Advance release.
