Terapin is a boss enemy that appears in Breath of Fire II. It is encountered in Capitan's DryWell.

Story[]

Terapin is responsible for causing the well in Capitan to become dry. It also uses Chirorus to attack and control villagers in the well. After fighting Terapin, the party is given an opportunity to save villagers before water fills the well again.

Strategy[]

This is probably one of the most difficult battles the party has yet encountered. If the party's levels are too low, then Terapin's FireBrth and quaking attack will damage each member for more than half their max HP, which will quickly lead to their defeat. Its "regular" attack, launching one of the globules from its back, also causes serious damage to one party member. Its Brainwav attack doesn't damage a character directly, but causes that character to attack one party member (possibly themselves); Brainwav also cancels its target's action if they haven't acted yet.

Since most of Terapin's attacks do serious damage, the most important thing is keeping the party's HP as high as possible. Depending on how high their levels are (15 being high), buying more than 20 Herbs would be advisable. Moreover, Katt and Sten can heal party members before Terapin acts.

Sten won't have Flame at this point unless he has done some grinding, so he should use Bomb when he's not healing. Ryu's turn will likely occur after Terapin's, so he should either heal a character who's not likely to fall after the next attack (using Cure to save on Herbs) or attack, and Nina is capable of dealing good damage, especially if she has S.Boom, and Brainwav is less effective with her lower Power.

Nina's Pwr.Dwn spell will automatically fail against Terapin. However, her Ag.Dwn spell is effective and using it just once will slow Terapin down enough to guarantee that all party members can take their actions before Terapin does. This allows you to do all your healing before Terapin can attack, and stops Brainwav from hampering your attacks.
