Bats typically resemble their namesake; while colors vary, they have the same general physique. They have round bodies, usually covered in fur, with two ears on top, their face on the front, and small, featureless feet on the bottom. Most of them have a pair of leathery wings supported by modified finger bones, with the notable exception of the Electric Bat, which has six bizarre rhombus-shaped wings made of energy. Bats are generally found in caves or dark areas, such as the Crystal Caverns, the Ice Cave by Hope Harbor, and in the various underground areas beneath towns. One of the main exceptions is the Wild Tropics, which has a small population of Blood and Electric Bats.
In combat, Bats are relatively weak foes; while they are stronger than Idols and small Slimes, they are not much of a threat. They typically have low HP, but compensate for it with above-average Evade, somewhat like Birds.
Bats typically use Wind attacks, and are often weak to Wind, Thunder and Bio. As they are flying foes, they are generally immune to Earth. Most Bats are also very vulnerable to Tired, Stun and Weaken as of EBF5.
