The Lime Squid is a foe and a summon in Epic Battle Fantasy 5. Lime Squids are mostly found along the Rainbow River and surrounding areas. It is a member of the Squids enemy group.

Appearance

Like the other members of the Squid family, the Lime Squid has many tentacle "feet", two mildly unnerving eyes that are the size of its mouth and a generally pear-shaped head, although its head is sharper than the other squids and it has a yellow fin on top of its head. In accordance with its name, it is lime in color, and notably has two sharp spikes at the end of its tentacle arms.

Overview

The Lime Squid is a powerful enemy, as it has strong attacks from various elements that also inflict diverse status effects. It is Thunder-aligned despite being a sea creature, and uses Thunder attacks as well. However, it is vulnerable to Fire much like the other squids are weak to Thunder.

The Lime Squid may catch players off-guard as it is typically found with enemies that favor Water and are weak to Thunder. In terms of attacks, the Lime Squid has a diverse set of offenses (favoring Thunder) and can inflict a wide range of status effects, including Shroud and Disable. On harder difficulties, the Lime Squid also acquires a high-power Bomb attack which can Dispel targets, noticeably strengthening its arsenal.

When killed, the Lime Squid's final "attack" may inflict Stuffed on a player. If the party is able to break off its arms, inflicting it with Syphon or Berserk will cause it to Surrender on its next turn. Letting the Squid flee or capturing it may be preferential to killing it, as this will prevent the Stuffing effect.

Aside from absorbing both Water and Thunder (as well as resisting Wind), the Lime Squid shares Ice and Earth elemental weaknesses with the other Squids, and also has the common weakness to Bio found in animal-type enemies, giving the player a nice selection of ways to defeat it. Because dishing out strong blows can break the Lime Squid's arms, using Eruption or Cataclysm should work well.

Lime Squids are notable as the only foe to drop Grapes.
