The Lime Squid is a foe and a summon in Epic Battle Fantasy 5. It is mostly found along the Rainbow River and its surrounding areas.

Appearance

The Lime Squid has the basic body plan of a Squid: many tentacle "feet," two mildly unnerving eyes flanking a tubular mouth, two long tentacles used as arms, and a generally pear-shaped head. However, its head is sharper than the other Squids and is topped with a ragged orange-yellow fin; a pair of smaller fins are visible near the base of its head. As the name suggests, it is lime in color, with peach-colored suckers and bright orange irises. Its tentacle arms end in sharp spikes.

Overview

The Lime Squid is a powerful enemy with 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 how 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. Its Evade is a little lower than average, but its great resistance to Accuracy debuffs (after the v2 update) makes it tougher to dodge its attacks.

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 multiple options to defeat it. Because dishing out strong blows can break the Lime Squid's arms, using Eruption or Cataclysm should work well. On the other hand, its status as a high-tier foe makes it quite resistant to Doom and Instant Death and even more resistant to Stun, Chill, and Freeze.

With "More Foe Resistance" enabled, the Lime Squid becomes immune to Wind, neutral to Ice, and almost completely immune to Doom and Instant Death. Its Earth weakness is greatly lessened, and it becomes fairly resistant to having its offenses and defenses debuffed.

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

Additionally, the Squid will use Stuff when it's killed.

Summon

The Lime Squid can be captured to be used as a summon. It attacks all foes with its tentacles, hitting twice for decent physical damage. The first hit is non-elemental, but the second hit is Thunder-based and has a high Stun chance. Both attacks have above-average Accuracy.
