Production Type: Mass-produced
Primary Use: Security
Profile 1: Capable of flight with levitation wings, but the flight distance is limited due to the simplistic design. Nonetheless, one should never underestimate its explosive speed in immediate combat.
Profile 2: When inactive, it uses its claws to stabilize itself on the ground. After being corrupted, the claws have become a weapon.
- Rush: Performs a medium-range thrust. This attack will display an attack path prior to launching. Its action speed is notably slow.
- Shout: Strikes in a radial pattern with itself at the center. This attack will display a range marker on the ground prior to execution.
Notes and Advice
Similarly to the Protector, the Aerial Monitor will frequently adjust its position depending on its intended action.
Its collision detection with relatively short-ranged melee attack types (such as the Basic Attacks of Watanabe: Nightblade or Nanami: Storm) meshes poorly with its recoil animation and will frequently prevent the player's attacks from fully connecting. Characters with long-ranged attacks, pull-type attacks, or approach-type actions are advised to combat this enemy.
