- "Heh heh... I can't believe you would fall for a trap like this..."
- — Acacia PVT
Acacia PVT is an enemy in Chrono Cross. Clothed in a full suit of armor, they wield long swords and a helmet which completely covers their facial features, save for their mouths. Assisting the Acacia Dragoons, these nameless infantrymen guard the lawns and halls of Viper Manor. The PVT in their name is an abbreviation of private, a low ranking military official.
Acacia PVT's can be trapped in the Forget-Me-Not Pot and added to the pool of Doppelgangs performed by Sprigg - but note that this is only possible on New Game +, because this enemy does not reappear after the player has acquired Sprigg and the Forget-Me-Not accessory, nor does this enemy appear in the Bend of Time.
Battle and Strategy
Acacia PVTs usually appear in groups of two or four, and are sometimes accompanied by their superiors. Their weapons of choice is the long sword, which they use to slash their foes, in addition to several weak punches and kicks. They are able to utilize various elements for healing, buffing and innate color changing. They also possess a unique tech of their own, StormBlow, which may inflict fairly heavy amounts of damage to foes with low defenses.
