Battle[]

Stinger can use its Sting attack twice in one turn. Its Sting Bomb is a powerful non-elemental fractional damage attack, removing 3/4 of a character's current HP, but it cannot kill. Stinger can also can use it as counter-attack, but this attack is only used twice per battle.

Strategy[]

As long as the party has Restore Materia, Stinger is no danger. The Enemy Skill Frog Song and the spell Mini is effective against it, as well. It is also susceptible to Death Sentence so the player can shrink it and leave it be until it dies so it doesn't counter attack with its fractional damage.
