Sand Worm
Fiend Listing - Monster Arena

Monster Arena > Bikanel > Sand Worm

HP: 45,000

Sand Worms have a ton of HP and will take quite a while to defeat. They can also use a move called “Swallow” which will take one of your party members out of the battle for a few turns.

You can use Auron’s Overdrive, Shooting Star, to instantly defeat a Sand Worm though and greatly speed up the battle. Alternatively, have Wakka use Dark Attack or Dark Buster to inflict the Darkness status effect and greatly reduce the amount of damage that Sand Worm does. Lastly, you can have Lulu use Bio on the Sand Worm to do a ton of damage through Poison.
