*** And in case you thought hunting for Metal Slimes was obnoxious, try 097 Cry Wolf, in which you have to kill five Scarewolves after you hit them with War Cry, but ''before'' the effect runs off - which, if your Martial Artist is faster than the Scarewolf, which they most likely will be, happens in the same turn you used War Cry in. Now consider that War Cry isn't guaranteed to afflict the enemy with the needed status effect, but you still need to be ready to kill them in case it ''does'' work, and let's not even forget the needlessly confusing way in which the mission phrases itself, and you might end up killing at least twice as many Scarewolves as needed without even ''one'' of them counting towards your quest progression.

** Tyrantula will ''cripple'' you if you haven't got the shield skills to fend her off. Her standard strategy is to envenomate you and then tangle you up in webs that make you lose a turn, so you need Holy Impregnable and Back Atcha if you want even a ''chance'' to fend her off.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretaion: Patty, who is generally depicted in one of two ways. In-game, she's bombastic, blunt, and borderline rude, but in the opening movie and the page image TV Tropes is currently using for YouAllMeetInAnInn, she's far more sultry and prone to lounging.

** The difficulty of a grotto boss essentially hinges on whether or not it knows Disruptive Wave. As ContractualBossImmunity means stat-lowering spells don't work on them, the only way to cause some real damage and survive is to buff yourself (Fource, Channel Anger, Tension, Kabuff...), which Disruptive Wave completely nullifies. Sages can learn it, but it will (at best) remove 20 tension from a boss.

* DemonicSpiders: Although technically a boss, Tyrantula otherwise fits this trope nicely, capable of entangling your characters and striking them all at once with its toxic venom.
** Boa Bishops. Good Almighty, Boa Bishops. These things get two goes per turn, have a hit-everything attack that can destroy mages in one or two turns, an automatic sleep attack, very much avert SquishyWizard ''and'' FragileSpeedster. And they show up in twos and threes, often accompanied by cyber spiders (DemonicSpiders themselves, what with their blinding and slowing moves, high attack, and needing magic to be killed) or freaky tikis (which lower resistance to StandardStatusEffects and also have a blinding move). Oh, and if that wasn't enough, they also chase you instead of going in a straight line, and their snake tentacles/feet give them extra width so you can't even dodge or go around. Even level 99 parties can be quickly killed by these things.
