Template:FFVIII Enemies The Turtapod is an enemy is Final Fantasy VIII. It is a small turtle that can defend itself, and also fly to attack. Junctioning Death to ST-Atk-J kills the Turtapod quickly, even if it is inside its shell.
The best-known Angelo Search trick involves this enemy: After Turtapod has retreated into its shell, the player can cast Confuse on it, and the Turtapod will never come out of its shell unless it's been hit first. The player can then leave the game on and let Rinoa's dog Angelo come and search again and again (there is no limit how many times the player can get Angelo Search in one battle, though getting her to appear many times takes time).
