||ナイトフライヤ (Naito furaiya, lit. Night Flyer)
The Alphabat is an enemy in Chrono Cross. Alphabats have rather small bodies, which are flanked with two rather large wings, which it flaps constantly to stay afloat. They appear to lack mouths, and have two tiny yellow pin-pricks for eyes. Found in Fort Dragonia (Another World) and Viper Manor (Home World), these bat-like creatures can be found fluttering about in various rooms of said location. They fight using a series of body slams and bites while afloat in the air. They pose very minimal challenge, and are unable to inflict very heavy amounts of damage. They utilize a wide range of Black elements, alongside one unique tech, DarkBeam, which they use fairly frequently. Alphabats can be trapped in the Forget-Me-Not Pot and added to the pool of Doppelgangs performed by Sprigg.
Battle and Strategy
Alphabats usually appear in groups of two or more, and are frequently accompanied by Gobledygooks or Googhouls. They utilize a series of body slams to inflict damage, but due to their relatively small frames, they are unable to do very much. They have, at their disposal, a fairly wide range of offensive Black elements at their disposal, alongside their personal tech, DarkBeam, the latter of which they use rather frequently.
