The Gerridae is an enemy appearing in Chrono Cross. These small, unassuming water skaters can be found solely under the large tree in the Shadow Forest in both worlds. Wearing a constant scowl on their faces, Gerridaes can be found leaping about furiously in said location, and are extremely difficult to dodge. Gerridaes can be trapped in the Forget-Me-Not Pot and added to the pool of Doppelgangs performed by Sprigg.
Battle and Strategy
Gerridaes appear in twos, threes or fours, and are usually accompanied by Gloops. Gerridaes attack by leaping up into the air and hurling their bodies at their foes for mediocre amounts of damage. They are known to use a fairly huge range of blue elements, most of which are healing ones, such as Cure and CurePlus. They also possess a special tech, SquirtGun, which they use fairly frequently in battle to inflict average amounts of damage.
Gerridae is a family of true bugs in the order Hemiptera, commonly known as water striders, water bugs, magic bugs, pond skaters, skaters, skimmers, water scooters, water skaters, water skeeters, water skimmers, water skippers, water spiders, or Jesus bugs. In this case, the Gerridae enemy is seen hopping about on the surface of water, and hence, its name is a befitting one.
