ProtoBot is an enemy that appears in Breath of Fire IV. It can be encountered in Sichon. If they are attacked by a spell combo, their bodies will rupture and they will award double the normal amount of experience points upon their defeat. After rupturing, ProtoBots will also begin to use the Sacrifice skill which player characters can learn from them.

Strategy[]

Fighting enemies in the bot family, such as Protobot, is an easy way to quickly gain experience points. Have somebody cast either Burn or Flare, followed by Nina casting Sever. If this is successful, this will create Firewind, a first level Fire and Wind combo. The third attacker should be Ershin defending, so that she doesn't use her Covering Fire will and accidentally kill one of the Bots. The next turn should be used to heal the Bots, and the next turn as well. On the fourth turn, the bots will revert to their normal state, allowing them to be ruptured again and thereby further increasing the amount of experience points they award. If Nina's WIS stat gets too high -- thereby creating a risk that her spell will kill the bots -- use another party member to create a combo.
