Giant Bat is a recurring, somewhat low-leveled enemy in Shining Force: The Legacy of Great Intention and its remake Shining Force: Resurrection of the Dark Dragon. They can pose a serious threat to players early on, as they have massive movement due to their ability to fly over terrain, and their ability to send players to sleep. As would be expected, many fighters will struggle to land a solid blow against the flying fiends.

Background[edit | edit source]
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Due to their ability to fly over difficult terrain such as hills and forest, it can be difficult to get your stronger characters in range of them before they get the upper hand. If possible, it's best to lure them to easier areas to traverse, such as grass and roads. Many non-magical units will miss their attacks, making it best to use magicians such as Tao to take them down. Something to watch out for is their passive ability to send their targets to sleep, which can prove devastating early on if they manage to get in range to attack first.
