The Man-Of-War is an enemy fought in Chrono Cross. Men-Of-War appear as headless suits of armor, lacking a physical body. They also wield swords as their weapons of choice, coupled with a Decor Shield, which they attach to their left arms. After placing the Decor Shield on the suit of armor in the vault of Viper Manor, several Men-Of-War attack the player. To test the strength of Serge and his allies, Fargo forces them to fight two Men-Of-War. These enemies appear as animated suits of armor, bearing blue shields identical to the Decor Shield and Longswords. Men-Of-War can be trapped in the Forget-Me-Not Pot and added to the pool of Doppelgangs performed by Sprigg.
Battle and Strategy
Men-Of-War usually appear in fours, accompanied by one Man-At-Arms. They sometimes appear without the Man-At-Arms, and do so in groups of three. Men-Of-War attack by first running up to their foes before performing a series of slashes with their swords, inflicting mediocre damage in the process. Men-Of-War are capable of utilizing a small range of elements, of which they use HiRes the most frequently. As enemies, Men-Of-War do not pose as very formidable opponents, and can be defeated fairly easily with careful planning.
The name of this enemy, Man-Of-War, could be a direct reference to the fact that it could have been a soldier when it was still alive, and constantly fought battles in various skirmishes.
