The Gloop is an enemy appearing in Chrono Cross. Taking on the form of a single mass of a pink-colored jelly-like substance, Gloops can be found under the large tree in the Shadow Forest in both worlds and in Viper Manor (Another World). They are also spawned by the enemy Witchetties in the sewers of Viper Manor (Home World).
They tend to attach themselves onto ceilings and jump down onto unsuspecting foes to spring surprise attacks, making them fairly difficult to avoid. Gloops can be added to the pool of Doppelgangs performed by Sprigg. The so-called 'upgraded' version of the Gloop is the Giant Gloop, which is a boss fought in Fort Dragonia (Another World).
Battle and Strategy
Gloops usually appear in threes, accompanied by Gerridaes in the Shadow Forest. On infrequent occasions, however, they are known to appear in twos or fours in said location. In Viper Manor, Gloops usually appear with either Witchetties, Alphabats ot a combination of both. Witchetties are capable of regurgitating Gloops in battle, essentially adding more foes onto the field to fight. A Gloop may be fought alongside a Beeba and a Taurminator in the first round of the Grand Slam tournament as well. Gloops attack by changing their body shapes into that of multiple-sided stars or swords before hurling themselves at their foes. Gloops are physically weak, and as such, they pose very little problem when fought. They possess a unique tech of their own, which is that of Goo. Goo is capable of possibly inflicting the Flu status effect onto its targets, and likewise, does not pose that much of a threat.
Their Japanese name ネバルー nebarū possibly derives from the Japanese verb 粘る nebaru "to stick/to be sticky".
