The Sarracenia is an enemy in Final Fantasy XIII-2. It halves physical damage and absorbs hit points from the party with Nutrient Absorption, so it's best to ensure that the party uses magical attacks against them, especially lightning-based ones, in order to take them down quickly.

Stats[edit | edit source]

Paradigm Pack[edit | edit source]

The Sarracenia is a Commando. Its stat development is slow at first, but its HP and Strength increases rapidly between levels 20 and 30 before slowing down again. If fed with Potent materials, its Strength stat overtakes its magic stat around level 18.

While its raw stats do not compare favorably to other monster Commandos, it does possess the useful Drain Attack ability, its non-inheritable Feeder abilities can be useful against powerful enemies that like to protect themselves with status enhancements, and it learns many passive and auto abilities that improve its otherwise modest Strength and Magic stats during battle.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Sarracenia is a genus of carnivorous North American pitcher plants, commonly called trumpet pitchers. The plant's leaves have evolved into a funnel to trap insects, digesting their prey with proteases and other enzymes. The insects are attracted by a nectar-like secretion on the lip of pitchers, as well as a combination of color and scent.
