Battle[edit | edit source]

Creepy Touch.

Unknown 3 will counter all attacks with Creepy Touch, which always inflicts the Sadness status. This is not necessarily a bad thing, as the damage it can inflict with its attacks is high, and Sadness makes the characters take less damage from enemy attacks. Unknown 3's main attacks consists of Poison Fang, which deals upwards to 3000 damage and always inflicts Poison to a party member; Slap, which deals high physical damage; and Bolt2, which is its weakest attack and is negligible. This last three attacks it only uses on party members without Poison status.

There is a bug with Unknown 3 checking for Fire's MP cost rather than Bolt2's, and does not successfully lock out using spells when it is out of MP.

All Unknowns are vulnerable to Gravity. Unknown 3 is the best means of gathering Magic Sources late in the game, by morphing it.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Wearing an accessory that prevents Poison will make Poison Fang miss, so it is advised to equip a Ribbon or Star Pendant. An easy way of defeating this enemy is to put it to Sleep through Frog Song or Sleepel, then using the Enemy Skill L4 Suicide to reduce its HP quickly, also leaving it ripe for morphing (the player may use L4 Suicide twice, or Yuffie's ultimate weapon, the Conformer, also found in the Gelnika, still does full damage with Morph). HP Plus is a good way to gain more HP to withstand its attacks and exploit its high damage for filling up the Limit meter. Slow and Big Guard can be useful for slowing down its attacks. Magic Hammer can be used to drain it of MP making the Unknown 3 unable to use its attacks, also replenishing the caster at the same time.
